Pros: "Everything except landing at the same time my next flight was boarding. I had to sprint and was greeted my the meanest delta agent I have ever known. I didn’t know you could be that snotty. She would not Listen to me or help me get the correct seat o had signes up for"
Cons: "Attends on flight said to go ask gate crew to help me and I rushed out to be greeted again by the bus mean crude snotty agent. She told me to get my rear on the plane The attendants didn’t have a clue that she had others to board ( they all got upgrades) and I better move my rear. I was shocked."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Cons: "The airline cancelled the flight alluring weather conditions, when the reality was they did not wanted the plane to park in Kansas. The weather conditions were even worse on the flight I was moved to, and that flight was not cancelled. They absolutely did not care about the passengers"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."

Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."

Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was so short there was no food , drink or entertainment."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The delta employees kept us informed of what was going on with the jetway which had broken. Despite the chaotic boarding, we arrived at our destination on time! Way to go! I do love delta."
Cons: "Due to the construction in the airport, there is a small area for this group of people to be ready to board, therefore, it was very difficult to move or get around, Suggest that employees give more instructions about boarding procedures and suggest that people line up accordingly in the right order. They should explain the order of entry, and ask for people who are the last group to stay back so that those who board first are allowed through."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Boarding was not a problem at all! ."
Cons: "The pilot was very rough maneuvering the aircraft. Starting from take off the pilot took off from a halt and accelerated so fast that I believe takeoff took 3sec or less. Also taxi into the airport about to land His maneuvering was Preety rough compared to the other two delta pilots that were perfect. There wasnt any food offered."
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about my flight to Richmond."
Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front"
Cons: "Small delay of 25 minutes"
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Pros: "Did not use"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 times until we were unable to make our connecting flight. We were sent home to try again tomorrow. Meanwhile other flights AA made their connections. Total bullshit. I suggest they couldn't round up a crew."
Cons: "You are kidding."
Pros: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."
Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."
Cons: "There was a older Caucasian flight attendant that didn't have a name tag on that touched me twice on the shoulder"
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."
Cons: "Took forever"
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "This experience has taught me to stick with Delta."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing exceptional. Pretzels and a bloody"
Cons: "Group boarding again"
Pros: "Nothing very unhelpful staff also very rude"
Cons: "How they sell a ticket without seats available?? Very unpleasant flight! I will never buy through kayak.com and never will flight with American Airlines again"
Pros: "Friendly crew. efficient."
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "On a 10+ hour flight that you're trying to stay awake for, some sort of entertaining is near mandatory. Neither mine nor my boyfriend's TV worked. Even after the crew reset the system twice, they still didn't work."
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was late, I was bumped out of my seats that I paid extra for. The seats we had wouldn't recline. Boarding was announced in 5 minutes so lines were formed and we boarded 35 minutes later as we had to wait for one extra cabin crew member. We got charged toe all our bags (see SWA). There was human waste in the bathroom."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Bumpy landing in Charlotte. But it was windy and raining."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 3 times"
Cons: "The airport that I got book two was hot they had no air condition"
Pros: "After sitting at the gate for an extra hour we finally boarded. The flight it's leg was an hour and a half late leaving but only put us about 50 minutes late to our destination which eas great. Stewardesses seemed very angry and were visibly distressed. There's no reason or excuse for this. I work on hospitality and you always put your best face forward. Being short and calice with EVERYONE on the flight does nothing to help you."
Cons: "The entir experience was rather lackluster."
Pros: "Movies and music through individual seat monitors were a great idea.The Pilot on our way back was outstanding. He gave truthful and accurate information about delays, was always on the alert for warning us and staff about any expected turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was actual operated by American Airlines, so don't blame Finair. I had to call Finair for a question and they were polite and helpful. The crew on the plane on the flight from Charlotte to Rome were just mean, curt, and generally unhelpful. They did not collect trash or dinner trays for well over an hour after everyone had finished. The Italian gentleman next to us was so disgusted he got up and found the trashcan himself and refused to talk to the flight crew the rest of the trip.It didn't matter because they disappeared after dinner and no one saw them again for 5 or 6 hours. On the flight back from Rome the crew was nice but slack. They skipped all the back rows twice row 34 onwards) when they got distracted during a refreshment service. They also repeatedly told passengers they were out of a specific item on the cart but "you can go to the back and see for yourself if we have any".Customs is out of control. They refused to allow anyone off the plane for over an hour because they had another flight come in "from the islands". Then they yelled at us about calling relatives to let them know what the holdup was. It took 1 and 1/2 hours to get through customs because they made us use the new kiosks then go see a real person and answer questions there too."
Cons: "Prior flight was late getting in, but that was not communicated to us at the gate, even though that would require disembarking of previous passengers and boarding of new ones to happen in 6 minutes. Clearer communication would be better."
Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Snacks are never good. No TV."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times and no one knew why."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"
Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed several hours waiting on a part to fix the engine. The aircraft was too warm. I sweated the whole flight."
Cons: "I do not appreciate spending several hundred dollars on a connecting flight with initially a 10 hour layover, and a delay of almost two hours."
Cons: "Barely enough room to hoist your baggage in the overhead bins"
Cons: "There were a lot of children on the flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the free United wifi because I could follow the flight progress in real time."
Cons: "They need free wifi!"
Cons: "Will never fly United again if I can help it. Friday afternoon out of CLT was cancelled and rescheduled for Sat afternoon, we had a Friday night wedding and had to get to Chicago. Agents were completely unhelpful over the phone, went to the airport agents at ticketing counter were also unhelpful and threw up their hands like there was nothing they could do to help us. Finally had to switch to Delta and got to Chicago at 1AM EST, missed the wedding."
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Cons: "Delta airline always delayed. My flight was delayed 3 hours then cancelled twice. they don't give you anything beside rescheduling your flight. Sucks. I hope to god I never have to deal with them again!!"
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Was able to watch a movie for free."
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Pros: "Getting to Charlotte"
Cons: "Plane dirty. Windows dirty. Extremely bumpy. Seats clostraphobic. Sat too long leaving"
Pros: "There were open seats!"
Cons: "Delayed a little because of weather. No big deal."
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Pros: "Flight attendant was wonderful."
Cons: "Confused. 1st received a msg delayed 1.5 hrs so was prepared for that. Then received msg an hour before delayed 15 min. Rushed to airport and it was still delayed 1.5 hrs. The plane was small but flight was ok."
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safe and back safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the pulling off or the landing or the rocking while flying."
Pros: "Flight was not only on time, but early both ways."
Cons: "Gate change at Newark."
Pros: "Everything worked out just perfect"
Cons: "No snacks served"
Pros: "My flight was extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Kayak did a great job with updates."
Cons: "United has failed me once again. Delayed flights, no information, the crew didn't know a thing..didn't leave out until 2am and was suppose to leave ar 855"
Pros: "Good beverages and we got in earlier than expected.."
Cons: "Super cramped and very uncomfortable. Was told to check my carry on from the first connecting flight and that it would get transfered to the second flight. It didn't. If I were not paying attention my bag would have got left at the exit of the plane like one person from my group who had to stay in Denver to pick up his bag in the morning after being told his bag wasn't at the exit of the plane and he couldn't go check for it."
Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
Pros: "I requested a wheelchair. My foot is in a boot and I am not suppose to walk any distance on it. I was told there were only 2 wheelchairs and that they were for 2 elderly passengers. I passed 8 more wheelchairs that were not being used. Very rude airport employees. I had to use an escalator and almost fell."
Pros: "No surprises!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "I was not aware that entertainment was available. Food is not worth asking about. How about NA as a choice for ratings."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were extremely friendly and genuinely seemed happy to be there."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours, putting me home at 4:00 am, instead of my planned 12:30 am. At that point, I wish I had booked a flight for Sunday. I was stuck in the ohare airport for hours while stores and restaurants were closed, without wifi, and tired. Then I had to wait for my paid checked bag once I landed in Charlotte."
Pros: "The boarding process"
Cons: "I didn’t like the costumer service, nor the way the airline handle my case."
Cons: "Other flights I have been on let us know what section or terminal we are being dropped off at before we take off and once we get there it is had changed. It helps people who are getting picked up a lot easier especially in a big airport."
Cons: "Due to long line @ tsa flight was missed. Extremely upset"
Pros: "Having layovers in other cities so I could get off the plane."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, everything is a charge from a basic water to your bags. After 11 hours of traveling, I can confidently say I would never fly this airline again."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "water should be free"
Cons: "Crew from Ft Lauderdale was very unprofessional and were hanging out as a group, laughing nearly the entire flight; they could not even get through an announcement without busting up."
Cons: "Very poor customer service from Spirit Airlines. All flights to NYC were going through except theirs on Tuesday, apparently because of ATC / weather related. This is a BS excuse and cost us one full day extra in Myrtle Beach instead of NYC."
Pros: "Very very inexpensive! And the folks were nice!!"
Cons: "The delay but it wasn't their fault!"
Cons: "Charge for the luggage was $52.00 when I could buy on line for carry on for $37.00. On the way back the charge was $59.00 for the same luggage."
Cons: "Imagine an all you can eat buffet for $5 with all the best things like prime rib and king crab legs. The reality sets in when they charge you $55 for a plate and an $25 for a fork to eat with. If you want to drink there is an additional $25 water service fee. If you need to use the bathroom that will cost you an additional $50. Your $5 buffet has now cost you $160. The only difference between the above scenario and my flight was the buffet actually cost $300 to start with before piling on the additional fees. It is the only airline that flies directly to Myrtle Beach from here. I had no zero options otherwise without long layovers. The one redeeming thing about this flight was the crew."
Pros: "Easy to find seat"
Cons: "How crowded the isle is"
Cons: "There was a weird smell in the row I was seated in. Passengers on later flight where excessively drunk and rowdy and this impeded other people from sleeping. My previous spirit flight made me uncomfortable because everyone was drunk in the exit row (which is supposed to respond in case of emergency)."
Pros: "I had more leg room than I thought I would. Also the window seats were nice. My personal item fit nicely under the seat in front of me too. Flight attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "A bottle of water cost $3! Come on man :-/"
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Cons: "I will never fly with spirit again we never made it to New York and we missed my nephew graduation thanks to you people"
Pros: "TAKE OFF WAS SMOOTH"
Cons: "LANDING WAS ROUGH AND SUDDEN, HEAVY FOOT ON THE BRAKES"
Pros: "Seats were better than expected. Pilot did good job flying us through a storm. Kept us informed."
Cons: "Crew was a little pushy."
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew. first time riding Spirit and certainly won't be my last. You can't beat the price!!!"
Pros: "I had my worse customer service experience in a very long time."
Cons: "I spent over two hours listening to people pretending like they wanted to help me but had no intentions. Airline employees should have no biases but there is clearly racism among people working at Spirit."
Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule. Pilot and crew were very good. All things considered it was good flight"
Cons: "I do not like to pay outrageous prices for a can of soda or beer, the prices they charge are ridiculously outrageous, they could lower them by a dollar or two and still make a good profit. So I just decided not to drink while on a flight."
Pros: "Direct Flight peasant staff and crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "The lady I sat next to"
Cons: "They put us on the plane only to have us sit in our tiny seats and wait for the luggage and fuel to be loaded and wait some more. Then charge us for everything -even water! Then hard bumpy landing that included a severe tilting of the plane to the left, which made the plane go quiet!"
Pros: "I like that you can use website to change and adjust your flights. I like technology."
Cons: "However, this website was not designed with users in mind. Not easy to find baggage additions and changes. Also, why would the system allow you to have baggage one way when you think that you have set the baggage to go both ways. At lease there should be a warning that you have only paid for one way so you can make adjustment."
Pros: "Everything was great about our flight on Spirit Air"
Pros: "Direct/Nonstop Flight from DTW is a plus. Low price for the most basic transportation. Cabin crew courtesy was acceptable but it's not hard to detect that they're not the happiest folks in the air these days."
Cons: "What can I say about the "Greyhound of the Skies"? These have to be the most uncomfortable seats in the airline industry, both in terms of cushioning as well as width and the inability to recline even slightly. There arent even seat pockets for the safety brochure...just a flimsy bungee cord. While I don't really have an issue with no beverages/snacks provided (I'm content to bring my own), I wish Spirit would knock off the low ball price game with everything being a cash grab including asking me to pony an extra couple of bucks so you can "green up" through the use of more environmentally friendly supplies (I don't know why...you ding people $10 for a boarding pass, and you on board refreshments are pay as you go). Crews seem to be stressed out whenever I fly....I guess instead of paying them more than their DEAD LAST payscale ranking indicate, the $ you make are passing them by on the way to the corporate board room and executive suite. SWA (and others) manage to have very successful low cost business models without reaching in my pockets at every turn. Given the choice...even if its a little more...i won't be flying on Spirit. Front office....get a clue and read the reviews, lest your aircraft find themselves parked in the desert somewhere alongside all the other carriers that went belly up. End of rant"
Pros: "Great round trip prices, well organized boarding for the complete round trip. If you want a specific service then pay for it!"
Pros: "Spirit was great... you have to purchase your own snacks and there was some no entertainment."
Pros: "The flight landed a bit early and that was great."
Cons: "I had a great flight. I needed a bit more space on the flight down because I sat in the middle. My flight to NYC was great because I got the extra space in a regular seat by sitting at the window. Great flight!"
Pros: "The other airline which actually managed to successfully get me home."
Cons: "Spirit bumped me from my flight despite the fact that I showed up over an hour before the departure. They were not only unhelpful and unapologetic, but actually quite hostile as they informed me that they would be offering no compensation or voucher, and would not place me on another flight for 2 days (although they were still advertising flights for the next day on their website)."
Pros: "Our flight was good. Food & Entertainment were N/A"
Cons: "Paying extra for luggage and carry-ons."
Pros: "I would have rather have driven by the time I left the house to get to my destination it took me more time than if I drove!! Plus it was uncomfortable. I could have slept and drove the next morning and at least been warm and have had a good nights sleep!!"
Cons: "Why could airport not turn on heat? Eight hours seating in a cold chair over night was ridiculous!! Then they gave me a middle Seat when I paid for aisle. I understand things happen but a $7.50 voucher for food is not a good reflection of service!!"
Cons: "I arrived an hour before my designated flight time but the line to obtain my ticket was so backed up that it resulted in me missing my flight. There were only two spirit agents who were taking up to ten minutes with each person that approached the desk which is outrageous considering the fast paced nature of an airport."
Pros: "Not one thing. Rude crew, damaged luggage and horribly expensive with having to pay for everything except the air on the plane."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. My daughters luggage was severely damaged including the flat iron inside getting broken. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable and you have to pay for everything under the sun. My flight ended up being much more expensive than other carriers but Spirit was the only one that had an available route to meet our cruise ship due to the snow storm."
Cons: "The airlines lied outright to passengers regarding the reason for the 4 hour delay. Reported a ground delay to Laguardia because of ice and snow. It was 43 degrees in NYC!!!! When I pointed that I ought the agent just shrugged. When pressed repeatedly after several hours by various passengers they admitted it was a Spirit Air systems failure. The gate agents were less than helpful and were down right rude when multiple sought information regarding the delay. ( We boarded, pushed off the gate, sat on the tarmac, then were brought back and allowed to leave the plane and wait at the gate) I will never fly with then again."
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "Not enough space on the plane. The seats are VERY close together"
Pros: "i pay for luggage $5the5 go and come i have no fun on my trip you are the worst airline ever i)m 60 year old i want my money back1347-7026957 name zennia-"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and went smooth."
Cons: "I am an average sized person. The seating is very cramped. My knees were pressed up against the seat in front of me, very uncomfortable!! Thank god it was only an hour and a half flight. I thought that the flight attendants were very unfriendly. ANd my cheap flight was not really cheap at all, with all the extras, being one suitcase.... Really 50dollars for one suitcase. Spirit ends up costing more than any other airline and they at least give you a snack and a drink, coffee, tea, water!!!!"
Cons: "The women who helped me seemed as if they didn't care about anything I was saying. They were unwilling to help me. And was very rude. I'll never fly spirit again"
Cons: "I bought these tickets through Kayak, which then directed me to priceline. I had no idea during booking that this airline charges an exorbitant fee for every single courtesy. To carry on a bag is minimum $55 and maximum $100. To check a bag is $50. Please tell me, who flies internationally from Guatemala to Boston WITH NO BAGS?! Additionally, soft drinks, which should be complementary are priced at $3. Their motto is don't pay hidden fees for things you don't use, but tell me, who doesn't want a drink on a 2.5 hour flight? The seats were the skinniest, thinnest, most uncomfortable seats I have ever had the displeasure in sitting in and there were advertisements on the overhead compartments, as if I were riding on the NYC subway. Although when I purchased the seats I selected to have my husband and myself sit next to each other, during check in, they tried to charge an additional $10 to rearrange our incorrectly-ticketed seats, so we could sit together as I had originally hoped. We then had the worst layover experience I've had to date, and I've traveled extensively domestically and to 14 countries, some multiple times. We had a 40-minute layover in Myrtle Beach, where 130 people remained on the plane to continue on to Boston. However, nearly all those passengers had different tickets for the second flight and although we did not deplane, we were expected to move ourselves and our baggage to our secondarily assigned seats. For some reason, for our flight to Boston, my husband and I were separated. I would never have voluntarily chosen to be separated from my husband, and I have no idea how we had seats next to each other for our two previous flights, but then were asked to separate for our third 2-hour flight. How is it possible with modern-day computer technology that we could not just remain in our same seats, when we were remaining on the same plane? This was the worst travel experience I have ever had the displeasure of enduring and I will NEVER give my money to this airline again. This airline is a complete scam with all of its hidden costs, lack of customer service and completely inhumane treatment of its passengers. I strongly warn everyone to stay far away from Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "New plane and on time"
Pros: "The woman at the Spirit check in counter in Myrtle Beach airport was friendly, cheerful and downright fun. She put in a lot of extra effort to get my partner and I seated together. Dark hair, I think her name started with an M, but can't recall exactly. Anyway it was one of the best check in experiences ever, and I've had many."
Cons: "Couldn't seem to pre check in without being forced to sign up for the 9-dollar fare club (which I tried for a year and I can say it's a waste - why wouldn't they just be more realistic - nobody expects to pay that little). Probably missed something but I was doing it on my iPad. Worse is being forced to sit through an intrusive an typically loud 2+ minute long commercial for the Spirit MasterCard on every flight! The blaring PA system is very annoying and interrupts any activity you are attempting. What's worse is the completely misleading claims that the gazillion bonus points you get for signing up right away amount to nearly 4 round trip tickets. I tried it once and quickly found that all of the bonus points didn't even cover a single flight. It's downright false advertising."
Pros: "Cheap airfare, however they get you on baggage."
Cons: "Flight 711 out of Myrtle Beach,SC was cancelled without any notification! Only emails I got were one saying my flight was on time and then another, 20min later, saying flight was delayed. My wife and I and about eight other people were there without any notifications of the cancellation and the spirit workers had no remorse and were rude! They did not care we were late for our honeymoon. Thank goodness we at least got our money back but I think there should be something else coming from them for the hassles we had to tolerate yesterday December 14, 2015 considering we had to pay double the price of our original tickets on a different airline."
Pros: "Cheap price. nice plane. It was cramped, but I'm fine with that considering they are a low price airline."
Cons: "My only gripe is that when we arrived at our gate, we had to wait for about 15 minutes because there was another plane there."
Pros: "The flight went well pretty much as scheduled. The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped barely enough leg room"
Cons: "I flew to SC on JetBlue, which cost me around $90 in total, because they let you fly with one bag for free. Because of scheduling, I flew home on Spirit. My ticket for the Spirit leg cost $78, but at the airport, I was charged another $75 in baggage fees!!! At the airport, Spirit charges you $50 to check one bag. To add insult to injury, they charged me an additional $25 to check my 44 lb bag because it was "overweight," Unbeknownst to me, unlike all other domestic airlines with a weight limit of 50 lbs, Spirit has a weight limit of 40 lbs. The same bag that I flew down on JetBlue for free cost me $75 to fly home, nearly (unexpectedly) DOUBLING my ticket price at the airport."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Cons: "They never bothered to tell us that they were going to charge us in our man the leg for our luggage"
Cons: "The water could have been free. I am aware it was a no frills flight."
Pros: "Inexpensive and nice plane."
Cons: "Late..Late..Late.got home @ 3:00 a.m. because of a late departure!"
