Cons: "Social distancing on the seats"
Pros: "The crew and seats were both great"
Cons: "HAving live TV would have been great."
Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Pros: "of everything."
Cons: "travel time ...ahahah ...."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The food, excellent for coach class; we even had a welcome cocktail. We even managed to take off early."

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"

Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Just fine, beverage service was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system was out the entire flight. The flight attendants were just talking to each other as we left, even when I tried to say thank you."
Pros: "Going back home to the US"
Cons: "I had 15 hours layover in Amsterdam so I got me a hotel.one hour after I got to the hotel I got a notification from Kayak app asking me to go get my bag from Schiphol. My bag was supposed to be directly shipped to PDX. I had to leave my hotel back to the airport and spend 2 hours trying to find it only to be told that it was going to PDX. I lost my $170 hotel room, over $70 for taxis and ended up spending the night on the floor at Schipol. I do not think I'll ever use Kayak again. The travel guarantee is a joke too."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Pros: "New Boing 717 aircraft. Short flight time. I needed and got very good special assistance."
Pros: "Timely flights , plenty of good food and disciplined serving Amsterdam: good layover Modern plane Better entertainment system Good flight to travel to India , Mumbai ."
Cons: "Windows weren't clean for stargazing"
Pros: "everything except in flight internet."
Cons: "Gogoinflight hasnt woked as it said it would on any flight on any airline for a year."
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time. Signage at PDX is good. Easy to find where you need to be"
Cons: "Layover, confusing mob line at checkin."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "I have never had a problem with this airlines. This flight was no exception"
Cons: "More space, but I am in economy and that's just life! I expect my hips to hurt after, again my problem not there's, if I wanted more room I would buy first class but I won't for a short trip."
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"

Cons: "Nothing was bad about the flight sorry"
Pros: "Great crew and aircraft"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "No food. Only snacks and very good snacks"
Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Pros: "Good service once I finally got on a plane."
Cons: "The alternative routing after my missed connection was not good and would have resulted in a very long travel day on a comparatively ill-equipped aircraft. So I stayed in Amsterdam on my own dime to take the same direct flight one day later."
Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."
Pros: "The boarding agent took the scattered seat assignments of out party of six and got us all co-located - of her own initiative. I really appreciated that."
Pros: "On time, new airplane and good entertainment system"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, caring and personable."
Cons: "My seat's video monitor didn't work properly, despite crews attempts to reset it. Movie or anything was frozen at the advertisement. Worst part of flight was no ones fault--heavy snow conditions caused 1 1/2 hour back-up for de-icing. Only other complaint I also noticed on my last Delta flight--the volume on the captain's announcements needs to be turned up. Hard to hear much of what he said. His explanation of de-icing, and how it might cause an odor or even haziness in the cabin was very helpful so that I didn't worry when the odor happened. I do like Delta very much."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"
Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"

Cons: "Seats very tight."
Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."
Pros: "Friendly and correct cabin crew."
Cons: "Leg space. There was very little leg space. One hour before the flight departure they were already announcing 'last call' on the airport screens."
Pros: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Almost all seats on planes are tightly crammed together."
Cons: "More options of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. Amateur and inefficient company. Avoid at all cost."
Cons: "Cadeira dura"
Cons: "I couldn’t fly because at check in they asked me to pay for my 2 luggages and I couldn’t afford it so they let me out of my flight and now they don’t want to return my money. Worse airline I’ve ever seen. I’ve been flying international for 20 years and never saw a flight you have to pay for Luggage"
Pros: "Not much I can think of"
Cons: "Undisclosed charges for bags and a check on that lasted over 30 minutes and my entire family ogn6 people were scattered throughout plane with absolutely no effort to put young kids next to parents"
Pros: "Everything is amazing"
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."
Pros: "Crew good, disembarking slow."
Cons: "A drink and/or snack."
Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."

Pros: "yo tenia comida kosher y no me la dieron"
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"

Pros: "The crew was very kínd!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"

Pros: "Wine and whisky"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, as expected in business class"
Cons: "1. Entertaining not working Rebooting didn’t fix it Nobody offered any alternative 2. As the last seat, NONE of my meal options were available. Surely they could hv started fm the back at least once to offset this handicap?"
Cons: "The plane is ok but it is an old 767"
Pros: "there was way too little leg room and the seats went back too far. I love LAN and LATAM because the crew and cudtomer service are always EXCELLENT."
Cons: "Standing too long before boarding at 2am!"
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"
Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"
Cons: "Latam The website of Latam is useless. The services for people in broadcoast is so difficult that almost impossible (email, facebook, telephone, etc) In my case, i was in Africa and couldn´t change my ticket. My brother had to change it from Argentina."
Pros: "Staff was nice despite the situation."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, we were reassigned to a Turkish Airlines flight that departed more than 6 hours later than our cancelled flight, we were given lunch but at a fast food restaurant even when we had to carry along all our luggage (super un-practical). And searching for info on twitter I found out this flight gets cancelled quite a lot."

Pros: "The boarding was super fast as well as exiting, WOW!"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."

Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."
Pros: "The trip was on time and with no issues flying. I really enjoyed the ability to watch a movie...this was AWESOME!"
Cons: "Wow, the seating was VERY tight and I was happy for the TV screen in front of me to keep me busy. All the inflight interruptions on the movie I was watching."
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?"
Pros: "All connections-smooth"
Cons: "Only airline we flew that didn’t have pre boarding for families with small children."
Pros: "We did not take this flight when its schedule was moved back, instead taking one LHR-SEA that would get us home at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "The change by British Air in flight departure/arrival times. The resulting adjustment was costly and we were unable to get "extra" seating on the long leg of the trip by the time we were notified of the changes."

They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
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: "I don't know if I need to contact american airlines directly or what. But this is the 3rd flight that has been delayed with no reason given or for whatever the reason was tonight. Its obsurd. I booked a flight on Alaska Airlines specifically because american airlines had the issue of delays. Then come to find out, the flight WASN'T on Alaska...but its affiliate. It would be really nice to get some answers."
Pros: "We moved due to job change and American would not work with us to Change a reservation."
Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."
Cons: "Paying extra for seats"
Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Pros: "Modern plane"

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."

Cons: "Terminal at LAX requires a bus."
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: "Arrived 25 min EARLY for a change!"
Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Cons: "Cancelled and put me on a flight over a day later with no hotel voucher"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."

Cons: "The flight was late, i can not to watch the movie, the screen did not work sometimes. Furios stewardess."

Pros: "Because of the delay, I missed my connecting flight, but a United staff member was ready to hand me a boarding pass for a new flight right when I got off the plane. That took away any worry or hassle for me, which I appreciated."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 2 hours. Also, my headphone jack was broken, so I could not connect my headphones to watch a movie. When I tried to explain the problem, the flight attendant misunderstood and just ended up bringing me a new pair of headphones... not helpful."
Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."
Cons: "Again, seats are too close front to back."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Cons: "Upon approach we were suddenly deverted to Seattle. I had a few issues. Number one you could not hear the pilot so that made it worse. The lack of communication was horrible. I have been on flights when there has been clarity given a change in plans but this was bad. We sat at the gate for an hour and a half, again no real communication, the fligh attendant t hope was joking when he said there was a half a bottle left for the whole plane...much later we were served water. Announcements were made but no clarity. We were told to collect baggage at number 2. Get a voucher for a hotel. After deplann9ng about 25 of us stood in line at the customer service desk where there were two staff working slowly. Then after an hour they announced we were in the wrong place, couldn't that have been explained earlier? Once we made our way out of the terminal to the ticket count the line was all the way down the hall. still with little info we waited. We landed at the alternate airport at 945, at 130am I had my vouchers, the food not useful until the following day, the hotels were full, no one picked up the phone for the shuttle bus to the hotels. I finally elected to sleep at the airport on a bench. We had actually all been reassigned a flight on our same plane. So I am not sure why we had to wait in line all that time. Our bags were not removed from the plane an irritated baggage claim attendant told me. It was a mess. The flight the next morning was fine, short, without problems for me. united needs to work on its communications. It would have been helpful to have someone out side running the line giving out info. And at customer service they should have been paying attention to their line. Would have been helpful."
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "Crew was great even on overnight flight"
Cons: "Horrible delays and reboarding and then none of the crew tried to make anything better. My flight attendant practically threw one of the cheap bags of snacks at me"

Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Pros: "Everybody help me good information Thanks"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs due to lack of maintenance of the plane and we had to all get off to wait for the next one. It was also overbooked."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great, all smiles and very kind."
Cons: "The United staff at the gate desk were terrible. Very rude, unwilling to take care of customer requests or even try to show any customer service."
Cons: "It was delayed by 3 hrs"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to me while I was boarding. There was room for my carry on in the overhead compartment but she told me I had to keep my bag under the seat in front of me. There was also an extremely overweight person next to me, I couldn't lean back.I had to ride the entire flight on the edge of the seat stooped over. They should have made the large man buy 2 seats."

Pros: "Eplenty of leg room. Very nice flight, no complaints,nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "Everything costs money on top of the tickets I purchased. To compete with other airlines they are going to have to start including food, baggage, and entertainment for free especially on international flights."
Cons: "My seat was changed within a half hour of my flight and I wasn't notified until right before I boarded and had to refresh my e-ticket. I wouldn't have waited for group 5, when in reality I was group 3. and then because of this I had to turn over my carryon because no room for group 5 carryons. Also I like to have an aisle seat, and was squished into a window seat."

Cons: "It was an enjoyable trip, no complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Pay per view.. Not good at all."
Pros: "As a pilot i don't care about the food, never eat it. I care about safe aviating and that we had all the way down to minimums into New Orleans."
Cons: "Don't much like being treated like cattle, but compared to flying my own aircraft this is practically free and totally safe."
Pros: "I upgraded to first class, which made the flight much more comfortable. The crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I avoid flying whenever possible, as it is generally not a pleasant experience. Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "vinyl not cloth seats"
Cons: "The "free" movie service offered did not work on the flight to or from our destination. The seats on United seem smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Once we finally got a flight, because this one was delayed too, it was nice. The crew were friendly and helpful and made sure I was comfortable. Boarding went quickly and I was happy to get moving."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed one hour."
Pros: "Thank you for using Boeing aircraft! Akong with being an American made aircraft,even the small 737 is so much larger and comfortable than the any Airbus, sure makes your flight more comfortable and user friendly with the necessary leg room and overhead luggage compartment. My girlfriend and I just took a flight to Hawaii using American Airlines, and we were disappointed to get an Airbus every leg of the trip. I am 6'4" and those Airbuses have no comfort side to side or front to back, and I always have to see my chiropractor afterwards. You can't even get small carryons into their tiny overhead luggage compartments. I have flown United Airlines before and remembered that most of your aircraft were Boeing, so I chose this trip with you. Very comfortable flight and I look forward to my return trip. I will continue to Fky United Airlines from now on. And thank you for the new safety instructions video. It catches your eye and keeps you paying attention, and has humor too. Thanks again everyone at United"
Pros: "Horrible Delay and inaccurate time updates.. they postponed for 4 hours while giving hope every half an hour"
Pros: "Loved the baggage options with carry on baggage. So convenient."
Cons: "The seating was tight in economy. Hard to stretch."
Cons: "This was the only flight on United this week that wasn't over-booked. Still, seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seats in this old Boeing 737 are a lot better than the torture devices in the new airbus airplanes. The fact that the plane was not full meant there was enough room that the experience in coach was not literally painful as it had been on the Airbus leg into Denver from DFW."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Not comfy"
Cons: "I think free access to movies or TV would make the flight more enjoyable. I know I could have paid but sometimes I just feel like I'm being nickelled and dimed. A quick scan revealed very few paid-for programs on screens so you would probably make more in good will than you would lose financially."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, boarding was smooth."
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"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled twice! And when I called to see if it was going to get canceled they said that it might still take off at the original time, even though I got 2 emails saying it was rescheduled. This made it really frustrating because we would not make it on time if it took off at the originally scheduled time! We rushed over to the airport just to be told it was taking off late again! So we waited at the airport for 2 more hours!"
Pros: "It took me from point A to point B."
Cons: "Baggage fees are ridiculous. Never again with Spirit."
Cons: "We were stuck for over 30 minutes at landing gate."
Cons: "Due to their own delayed flight I lost my connection and instead of whatv is done with other airlines that move you to another airline in order to get the sooner flight, they dont give a thing for ur time and they dont even pay for a room."
Cons: "The leg room and the overall comfort was bad..you couldn't bend the sit."
Pros: "The Flight attendants and the pilots were great,"
Cons: "The flight was aver an hour delayed. With all the mess from the original flight to Chicago, I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "I understand that spirit is a cheap airlines particularly serving those without luggage; however, when having luggage I spent $200 for a flight to pdx to lax - not a good deal. $200 for that flight should come with some kind of incredible perks which is not the case with spirit where you don't even get proper flight updates on the screen or tray tables. Also, it is clear that your airlines prey on those who follow directions as I saw handfuls of people walking through the gate with their luggage and not being charged, my boyfriend/travel companion for example paid nothing for his luggage, disregarded all memos via loud speaker and walked on with his unpaid for luggage. The experience with spirit was undesirable in every way and I will never chose this airline over another (luggage in hard or not) after the poor experience and being completely ripped off. I plan to share this message with social media and yelp sites as well."
Cons: "I didn't have a flight on spirit, they rebooked us on Delta."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Seats had enough room"
Cons: "No pretzels"
Pros: "We thought we were getting tickets at a reasonable price."
Cons: "The price would have been reasonable if we didn't have to pay extra for EVERYTHING."
Cons: "first time fling with Spirit - too tight of a connection from Lima Peru to Fort Lauderdale - almost missed the connecting flight - in Lima, was told the ticket counter opened up at 7 when in fact it was 7:40 - the agents were not ready at 7, they were still bringing in counter items and Spirit banners(& misc. items) and 7:40 -"
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 loved that the flight was cheap. I only brought a backpack so I didn't have to pay any extra fees. I didn't care about the food packages so once again I didn't pay any extra. The flight attendants were awesome! I did the online boarding and it was really easy to navigate"
Cons: "The seats were small, but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't bad. If you have to buy a bag make sure you do it before you get to the terminal. It's the cheapest to do online and then the price just continues to raise as you become closer to actually boarding the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Cons: "Terrible. 6 hour delay."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Over two hour and a half hour delay and customers weren't offered and free drinks or snacks as flight crew only tried hustling guests into getting a credit card."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "No crew members are constantly going up and down the isles selling or passing out food."
Cons: "The trays in front are laughable and no reclining button."
Pros: "My own downloaded movie that I watched on my phone. Also needed/enjoyed the 2 bottles of wine that I purchased."
Cons: "Tight seat and screaming child right behind me, even after paying extra for the seat. Ugh!"
Pros: "The lady that did my check in was very nice and welcoming"
Cons: "While I was standing at the line waiting to give my suitcase, another attend was available but she was besy talking to her friend the second attended, so when I stand there for a few min and no body was there , I approach to the attendant that spoke to her friend and she gave my that attitude and send me back to the line . So eventually the lady that was besy got me and took care of me , but was rude !!"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Free hotel and food. They also provided for a taxi to and from the hotel."
Cons: "They sent the plane 30 minutes prior to when I, and 36 others arrived on another delayed flight."
Cons: "Cancelled it with no explanation Lengthy phone call"
Pros: "Not much to like about their service. Not worth the ticket price, there are all these hidden fees. No customer support. Flight insurance offered is missleading. Awful horrible bad pewtrid service."
Cons: "I purchased the flight insurance just in case plans neede to change, and they did. I flew my first leg with a different airlines; I needed to get to my destination sooner than I had origionally booked. Spirit makes it difficult to speak with anyone so I could not communicate my change. My return flight home was canceled even though I had paid for it. They would not help me return home at all. Spirt is awful. Their travel insurance is missleading. Spirit is the absolute worst as far as customer service. I cannot say enough bad about their service. Don't bother calling any phone numbers given, you'll be on hold hell for ever, with no pathway leading to speak to an actual human. RIP OFF."
Cons: "The lights were on the entire night flight, and got brighter when advertisements were being made."
Cons: "They wanted to charge me for a bag I'd already brought on previous flight with their airline. Again, it was a last minute booking, which was unquestionably cheap, so I can't complain too much."
Pros: "Crew was polite and rapidly boarded."
Cons: "Our plane was late to arrive, then had computer issues. We were delayed about 2.5 hours to our arrival."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed so much that, even though the second flight was also delayed, Spirit Airlines did not allow me to make the connection. Compensation was a hotel room until 12pm (even though the make-up flight is scheduled for almost eight hours later, at 7:55pm), taxis to and from the airport, and three $7 vouchers. Who can get a decent meal in a tourist destination for $7??? Will avoid this airline at all costs in the future."
Pros: "My re-booked flight was on Alaska Airlines and was much more comfortable than the Spirit flight would have been."
Cons: "I had to stay overnight when I could have made my original connection but wasn't permitted to board."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours. This crew was frienldier than our earlier flight though."
Cons: "There were several open seats and no one was allowed to go in the exit row. Not safe. Also boarding people were rude. I won't be flying spirit again."
Cons: "I was pretty turned off by spirit asking me 4 times for money to make their production more green, when they don't have mobile boarding. It seems blatantly scammy since they charge $10 to print the pass for you. I'd like to know the percentage of people who fly to a destination and have reasonable access to a printer so they can print their return flight home. I'm never flying spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit airlines scammed me and was a terrible value. I bought an inexpensive ticket ($70) without realizing that I would pay more than the flight for my bag and carry on ($85). The flight was delayed over 2 hours due to maintenance, so I missed the greyhound bus I needed to catch, and the people at customer service offered no reimbursement. They charged for everything (even water!) on the plane and I was only able to get water for medical reasons (once I told them I had a headache). The staff was rude and unapologetic. I usually fly southwest, and will do so in the future, because it is a much better value, considering they don't charge for bags and are usually inexpensive."
Pros: "It was very easy from start to finish!"
Pros: "quick flight once in the air"
Cons: "Incoming flight was late, seats are to close, would not take for a flight over two hours. Did I say the seats are too close."
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: "It was cheap but they make you pay in other ways."
Cons: "They make you pay $50 for your luggage and then they charged me another $25 for being 10 Lbs over weight. Everybody was complaining - no drinks served - they wanted to charge me for a glass of water - they wanted to charge me $9 for a seat reservation - the seats were all jammed together - the flight crew were fine but the ground crew looked at me like I had just "broken wind" when I complained about their over charging and the like - the whole thing was an ordeal and I felt like I had been scammed... big time."
Pros: "Staff was good and professional. Flight was timely and check in was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't know that no bags are included in the fare, checked or carry on. I had to contact spirit seperate from kayak and pay an additional $140 for 2 bags and $20 to sit next to my wife. This additional charge made my flight more expensive than the airlines I usually use. I also had to decline pages of extras from spirit"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever. Waste of money and time"
Cons: "Had to pay for s carryon it should tell you that won'the fly with them again"
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: "They leave out the carry on bag fee and mention nothing about it during checkout. $50+ per carry on bag for each flight. They have no free water or snacks midflight. Snacks I understand, but no water?? Really?"
Pros: "Spirit Airplanes -THE BEST!!!!!"
Pros: "I liked that one of the workers helped me find my way back when I got lost."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times which meant I got in to Portland at 4am. I was lucky that the car rental place was still open. I also had an early interview, so getting their at 4 am didn't allow for much preparation time for me."
Cons: "Crazy unclear fees. Horrible."
Cons: "5 hour delay, terrible communication, poor customer service"
Pros: "The employees were very nice but put into a bad position by their management"
Cons: "When a flight is booked, pilots should be scheduled. I understand that things happen but communication is key. Telling people that the plane is here and we should be boarding soon is a big mistake when you do not have pilots ready and available. Stop over promising and under delivering."
