Pros: "great everything!"
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "Delta Comfort isn’t so comfortable. Seats are too skinny."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Cons: "The crew was terrible & rude."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."

Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."
Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."

Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Friendly crew, navigation around storm, comfortable flight"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Pros: "Great flight from tampa, everything was perfect"
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "great crew!"

Great team United

Nothing

Pros: "screen in the seat to watch movie"
Pros: "The first class cabin stewardess was simply wonderful. I’ve never experienced someone more friendly. Wow. And this was my first flight on United in a long time. I’m going to use United more."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The actual flight was fine. It was the delay, followed by what seemed changing info on when it was happening. Every 30 minutes it changed. Five minutes before the flight, the info board said it had been moved to 9:40pm and was changed from Gate 3 to Gate 30, a very long distance to get to. However t"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the seats were roomier than I expected."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Impossible to get entertainment to work"
Pros: "Economy plus was so roomy and the crew was very attentive and nice."
Pros: "On time , smooth ride"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Space a little cramped.for spmepne 6'3""
Pros: "Arrived much earlier than expected and very smooth trip"
Cons: "Screaming small child for first 30 min of flight"
Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"
Pros: "Check-in process was smooth"
Cons: "Flight from Chicago to Zurich-staff required me to check my bag at the gate and pick it up upon arrival to our final destination in Krakow. The flight arrived late, which made us miss our connection. We were re-routed to Munich and then to Krakow. The bag was delayed 24 hours. The reason I only bring a carry-on is so that this situation would not happen. I have never been required to check my carry-on in the past. It was not a pleasant start to our vacation. I had really been looking forward to flying Swiss airlines as I had heard great things about it. I was extremely disappointed."
Pros: "The flight was actually with United not Lufthansa."
Cons: "It was like they changed our Lufthansa flight to United. I was not able to get our seat until the last minute at the counter. Luckily the crew was good and helpful atherwise I could not even sit with my husband. My chair was broken so I had to sit very straight. The screen was very tiny like only half size of the one on Luthansa flight. The food was only so so as well but that was just my personal taste."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese."
Cons: "Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite."
Pros: "Loved the in flight direct tv in the seat backs"
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew weren’t as welcoming. No leg room at all."
Pros: "Our flight was changed a total of 6 times. We spent 9 hours waiting because their wasn't a crew. When we tried to board our seats apparently we're given away to someone else. I will never be on another united flight again"
Pros: "Seat have enough space for legs. Airplain was clean and crew was friendly and pilot was nice as well, we had some air bumps on our way, so pilot took time to explain why he turned on seat sign, as well as he told 5-10 minutes before start lending that it is ladt change to get up to use restroom if someone needs it. The landing was smooth"
Cons: "Employees of united in Tampa airport are rood, to be exect lady Jennie M (or something starting with J and inial M) It was my flight back to Chicago. I had basic economy which means I can have only one personal bag (which I did, but it is lil bigger then regular women bags) I new it will fit cause I am flight with it all the time if I am going only for a few days and on those cheapest tickets. She gave me hard time telling me that my purse is to big to take on board and was making me to pay for that and the tone with wich she dpoke to me wasn't nice. When I told her that in Chicago they let me go with that bag, she said: "those united employees are not doing there job, if you want to go with it go, but I'll call too ur gates and they will charge you double for that bag" Which noone did, they did not even stoped me on gates, because my bag is perfectly fitting under the seat."
Pros: "Wrong gate from crew member on connecting flight - gate change in Chicago, reader was not working for pay snacks & food - in flight wifi , I didn't know about until we were airborne"
Pros: "Entertainment in flight"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "Easy boarding, room for everything!"
Cons: "On our returning flight, although I'm certain I seated us together, my traveling partner and I weren't seated near each other."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, swift flight"
Cons: "Seat was changed to last row/middle seat (not what initially booked or confirmed with online check-in). Before takeoff, attendant moved all passengers in back row to alternate seats. Which meant that I was no longer traveling with my colleague. Unfortunately, that made our intended meeting time impossible."
Pros: "United Provide good service"
Cons: "The flight delayed"
Pros: "on time boarding arrived early, crew was wonderful"
Pros: "Got there early!"
Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed by over two hours and I had to call and reschedule. I was rescheduled to an AA flight connecting in Chicago. The flight from Chicago to LAX was delayed by over four hours!"
Cons: "Internet service & power outlets didn't work"
Pros: "I like that it was big airplane"
Cons: "I was sitting by the exited and I didn't like it I couldn't sleep at all because the seats were not able to go backwards there was a woman that was standing at the entire flight because it was so difficult to fall sleep...!!! She was older I kinda feel bad for her I am 22 but I didn't really care but this woman was in her 50s and I felt terrible for her."
Cons: "Got to Chicago and there was an earlier flight (3 hours)leaving for Duluth. We asked if we could get in it and they said no you have to stay with you luggage. Got to Duluth and believe it or not our luggage came on an earlier flight. Apparently someone lied to us about having to stay with you luggage"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helped out as often as they could."
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable - my boyfriend and are not wide people but tall. Our knees touched the seat backs in front of us and it was not forgiving at all. The que for boarding was one of the worst that I've ever seen. People would line up for their boarding group way in advance, creating long lines throughout the main area of the terminal, hindering other people trying to get where they needed to go. Not only that, but it took FOREVER. Thank goodness the pilots made good time or else we would have been behind. I doubt I'll fly United again... I guess if I have to, but it will be something I dread."
Cons: "Our flight changed times both ways and we were never notified.. We only found out when we checked in. We also had to sit in the last row that doesn't recline both ways"
Pros: "The crew , living on time"
Cons: "I had no dislikes"
Pros: "Price was right and the flight operated on time. Can't really ask for more."
Cons: "Nothing to speak of at this moment"
Cons: "It was delayed 2 hours, no compensation was given even when asked for."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable we have experienced."
Pros: "Able to change flights"
Cons: "Original flight had maintainence issue... Three hour wait. Hat to change flight to Huston instead of Chicago for connecting flight to Seattle."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No alternative options given. Slow response. No retrieval of email confirmation after purchase of trip. Flight was delayed and no notice was given. Rental car had to ordered last minute and was left without room and board for the night. Had to call again for actual co formation of second flight because no notice was given,"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The boarding was slow. The flight ran 42 minutes late"
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Cons: "Delays, had to stay overnight in Chicago since we arrived 6 hours late"
Pros: "So, glad that United has come full circle after some adjustment phases and flying changes that is back to being "The Friendly Skies""
Cons: "For reasons known only to them, United managed to separate the reservations of my wife and mine. Having paid for the trip with the Mileage Plus Explorer card, the first checked bag is free for each traveler. At the kiosk check-in at Logan, the machine wanted to bill us $25 to check my wife's bag. It took another 20 minutes to get this rectified."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Pros: "Crew was amazing! ESPECIALLY Erica!!!! My daughter became extremely anxious due to the storm & turbulents & Erica was so kind & comforting & was able to relax her! THANK YOU!!!"
Cons: "Weather, lol!"
Cons: "Lack of information on flight delays, complete lack of employees available to handle baggage once we got to Chicago"
Pros: "Big seats"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "They boarded us pretty quickly and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "The seats did not have a pocket in back nor a real tray table. Those items would have been helpful."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "The interior was worn and seat saggy"
Pros: "On time Fast Smooth landing"
Cons: "Free water Free carry on Bigger Seats"
Pros: "Uh....quick boarding and pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Seats, space"
Pros: "Great staff on and off the flight, punctuality of the flight and being kept informed during the flight of status. My family and I are extremely impressed with Spirit, it makes me want to fly more often."
Cons: "The taxiing on the runway to get to the terminal, but understand that is out of your hands."
Pros: "Siper"
Cons: "Mice"
Pros: "Trip was on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for carryon bag"
Pros: "Pilot made up for lost time."
Cons: "Not comfortable for the price"
Pros: "On time. Very polite. Easy to check in and board"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Terrible seats."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight was faster than anticipated"
Cons: "QRS code for boarding pass wouldn't load on mine or my boyfriend's phone (using Gmail and Outlook). Computers were down at the gate in Tampa so I had to wait in line for full-service for over 30 minutes, despite "checking in" online (no bags). Employees at ticketing gate wouldn't reassure myself and 14 other passengers that we would make our flights due to Airline error. Once on the plane, unable to even open my 15inch laptop all the way because the seats were so small and tray tables were impossible. Surrounded by children. Asked for headphones, none provided. When I removed my coat from the under seat compartment, it had a piece of twizzler and an orange stain on it."
Pros: "Food and entertainment- NA on time and made up time for bad weather"
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline and tray table was too small to be of any use"
Pros: "The plane was very dated. The seats were broken (did not recline). Did arrive on time which was a plus."
Cons: "Overall Bad Experience"
Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "Bag fees were more than the flight"
Pros: "I liked efective boarding procces. Without delay!"
Cons: "Seats that you can't move on back."
Pros: "Comftable flight on time"
Cons: "Paying 55.00 last min. For carry on."
Pros: "Prices are greT"
Cons: "charged my husband and I for check bags $100 for 1 way trip. No water given to any passengers."
Pros: "I didn't order any food this trip. There is no "entertainment" on Spirit airlines. It would be nice to have WIFI and/or charging ports."
Cons: "A little narrow between the seat rows. If you a large person this could be uncomfortable"
Cons: "I bought a ticket that was supposed to take 6 hours because of delays it took 11 not enough connecting flights first and last using them"
Pros: "The prices"
Cons: "Comfort and no entertainment"
Pros: "Clean on plane"
Cons: "Needs more room for seating were charged for baggage"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather which I understand, however the next flight was next day 8:30 am to 8:30 pm totally unacceptable"
Pros: "Spacious seating"
Cons: "All the hidden fees associated with Spirit airline."
Pros: "Tampa air port has comfortable and convenient waiting area."
Cons: "Baggage fees and so many others fees remove Spirit from a low cost airline unless you fly without luggage, carryones, aren't hungry or thirsty, don't care where you sit and have no leg room to boot."
Pros: "My daughter and I flew together and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of boarding, the seat comfort (I have a bad back and have had some pretty uncomfortable seats on other airlines), and the crew were great! Understanding how to save money by pre-purchasing seats and bags made a big difference. I suggest buying the 9$ club! It's simple to do and saved me over 50$! Make sure you weigh your bags and no the weight limits... The crew was great!"
Cons: "We really wish we could have purchased wifi."
Pros: "There was a delay in our originating flight out of Tampa. It was clear that our connection was in jeopardy. There was a Whole day to reasses the best way to get us home in Monday. We were willing to do whatever it took and communicated that to service reps. Each time they pushed us to stay the course against all odds. We did miss our connector, missed work the next day and had to pay for a hotel stay in Chicago. My complaint is that there was plenty of time to make an alternate plan, but nobody at spirit was willing to make a move."
Cons: "1) Hidden costs for everything 2) Wouldn't refund the extra baggage fee we didn't need to pay; gave credit instead that I would never use 3) website is not mobile friendly and this very hard to use on a mobile device...which is what most people use when traveling! 4) departing flight was delayed last minute due to "air traffic control" what is that? 5) returning flight was canceled due to "air traffic control"...with no bad weather 6) only available flight was 3 days away; no attempt to cover some of costs incurred due to having to extend stay 7) when I tried to call the airlines on my iPhone was told they "could not accept calls from my phone device" what?!?!"
Pros: "Counter was close to the door. Luggage did not get lost."
Cons: "Flight to and from both delayed. Misinformation. Disorganized, poor communication. Seats don't decline. Confusing information everywhere. Long lines. It was a horrible experience, caused stress, spending money on rental car AND hotel....not expected.."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight after I checked in and went through security. I only was notified when I checked my email at the terminal. When I asked the person at the desk they simply said oh yeah I was supposed to make an announcement!"
Cons: "Pay $55 for each luggage on the board"
Cons: "Too many hidden fees! Buyer beware! The $55 carry on baggage fee is outrageous! We heard that the baggage fees are less if you book them online before your trip. We went online to do just that for the return trip and we were pleased to see that the fee was $36 - until we went to pay and there was a $9 fee tacked on because we weren't part of the "$9 Club"! We will never book with Spirit again. We will opt for the slightly higher flight cost and avoid the hidden fees! Overall, the flight was more expensive than any of our other options."
Pros: "Do not late take off"
Cons: "needness to pay for carry on"
Pros: "Good overall service, comfortable flight on par with other airlines."
Cons: "They charge too much for baggage (around $40), both for carry on and checked bags."
Cons: "Flying firm Chicago we carried on 1 luggage, on the way home they made us pay for the same luggage"
Pros: "All the personnel were friendly and helpful. The legroom on this flight was better than what we had on our initial flight. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "This was the first trip we booked with Spirit so we were not aware of how "bare bones" their system is. Like all systems there are positives and negatives to deal with. The biggest surprises were the charges for picking your seats and the charges and restrictions for baggage. But in spite of these, we still saved money and had an enjoyable trip. Be sure to check their website so you know how to pack and especially to pick your seats if there is more than one person traveling."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Cancellation after cancellation. Flights may be cheap but by the time u pay for either you checked bag or carry on your right back to standard prices of either a delta or American flight. Not worth it. Spend the extra for a real airline."
Pros: "Good price efficient airline"
Cons: "just a little tight in the seating however I do understand your reasoning for doing that"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. It was expensive for "no frills""
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Spirit put us all on the plane, knowing that we were going to taxi out 10 minutes then cut the engines and sit. We sat parked on the taxiway for 2/12 hours. Then we taxied back to the gate, waited while they assembled a gate crew, got back off the plane and the flight was cancelled. Then all 300 passengers had to go all the way back to the Spirit check-in counter back in the terminal and stand in line for another 2 hours just to hear that the soonest they could get us to our destination was going to be 2 days later. We requested a full refund....which as it turns out was about $30 shy of what we paid. Honestly, you can't make this stuff up. In my world "Spirit" no longer exists."
Pros: "Crew had a sense of humor, which was appreciated. Captain spoke to us himself."
Cons: "Most airlines check to see if your seatbelt is on, and maybe I missed it, but I didn't see them do it. Only thing I would really have to say negatively about this flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Pros: "I actually really liked Spirit Airlines. This was my first time flying with them and the crew was friendly (and at times comical). Breath of fresh air and I'd fly again."
Cons: "If you're booking through a third party site, such as Kayak, no notifications are given about how you have to pay for EVERYTHING additional that isn't your ticket ("A$$ + gas" as it says on Spirit's website). Thankfully a coworker had flown with them before and warned me to pre-purchase everything before I got to the airport and would discover that checked luggage is LESS expensive than carry on's and everything is about double if you wait until you get to the airport to claim a bag."
Pros: "Cheap efficient."
Cons: "Boarding process was a little clumsy."
Cons: "It was a disaster from the moment I got to the airport. Flight was going to be late and it kept getting later as the time went on until we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Their option was to give passengers a van ride from Chicago to Minneapolis. When no one thought that was acceptable they didn't do anything for a few hours. I finally got a hotel room and flight home scheduled(the next day) as the flight to Chicago was finally loading."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible service!!! Even my request for a glass of drinking water for my pregnant wife was refused by the flight attendant. everything was for sale and wanted me to pay for the bottled water instead!! The flight was delayed for more than 6 hours!! All my plans were messed up and spirit airline is known for its crappy service and frequent delay and cancellation of flights!! I will never fly through spirit again!!"
Pros: "Got to sit in exit row,"
Cons: "Someone had taken our seats. Don't know if it was double booked or if family was allowed to sit together despite seat assignments. My new seat in the exit row was very uncomfortable. In the center/back of the seat cushion was a hard lump or ball so that one had to slide their butt forward to get a comfortable position. The seat cushion was not very comfortable either and I am not a large person. We fly Spirit strictly because of price. I am actually surprised that there isn't a charge to use the bathroom."
