Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I got bumped from the flight. They overbooked. Three people were let on after me."
Cons: "There was a problem with their system, so they didn’t have a record of my checking -in. But, my email said I had checked in - just wouldn’t give me a seat number. They put me up in an old hotel that I would not recommend, so I can fly tomorrow."
Pros: "The ride was relaxing."
Cons: "Everything was good. I couldn’t put nothing for entertainment because the TVs were not running. I don’t think they do. Only for information maybe."
Pros: "Better entertaining sistem"
Cons: "Better entertaining sistem"
Pros: "Entertainment on board was good"
Cons: "One member of the crew wasn’t polite, his tone sounded rude/mad"
Pros: "The crew was kind. Movies were available, as well as a charging port for phones."
Cons: "We were prohibited from bringing water onto the airplane. However, this didn't seam to apply to all water bottles. My empty plastic water bottle had to be discarded, however, my friend's 32oz metal water bottle with water in it was allowed on the plane. She was able to get her water bottle filled during the flight, but my water bottle was tossed by the staff prior to the flight. How does this make sense? This was a 7 hour flight during which only 3 times were we given a small cup of water. That is crazy! Airplanes make you feel so dehydrated, and three small cups of water is not enough for 7 hours, that is absurd. Please, just like all other airlines and flights, allow people to purchase or fill their water bottles (regardless of the material of the bottle) prior to the flight so that they can remain comfortable."

Cons: "Air wasn't very powerful, and it felt quite warm. Not enough beverage services for such a long flight, especially when we weren't able to bring our own water bottles on board (security check at the gate immediately before boarding -- liquids not allowed).

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: "Cheap price"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant served a snack and drink, flight was good got us there on time pleasantly surprised thanks United ."
Cons: "Slow boarding process should use front and rear boarding but then again all airlines do it and flight boarded 30 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"

Cons: "No leg room , can't stretch out your legs"
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable we have experienced."
Pros: "On the way back had the whole row."
Cons: "The ghetto flight attendant was rude....correcting someone else's child for not saying please but she did it loud and not very professionally. The flight was over booked so on the way there is was thinking I might not get on the flight and was stressful."
Cons: "The crew was pretty rude on this flight for some reason."
Pros: "Flight is okay but may turn horrible when one is flying on an EMPTY stomach . At least they could add a few dollars to the ticket price and carry out this most needed thing --- FOOD"
Pros: "Clean airplane. Great crew. Happy with the trip from takeoff to landing. Our landing was very rough due to strong winds on runway. At one point, plane was a little sideways. But with the great crew in control of the plane...Safe landing. Scary...but lived to tell."
Cons: "That you don't at least get one show that is free on flight. A cooking show is what was the choice, but no control over the volume. And I can't read lips. So that really sucked."
Cons: "The wi fi did not work"
Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Ride was good. Attendants were good. Other passengers were cooperative and compliant."
Cons: "This plane, as most others nowadays, was cramped for space."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very very accommodating and funny. also Mariana was able to change our seat assignments so all three friends were seared together"

Cons: "Wish the TV preview was continuous & pay for movies but watch regular TV work no charge"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight."
Cons: "Broken WiFi"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Cons: "Overcrowded, rude attendants, and attitudes. Was told my carry on was to be checked in due to overcrowding and I counted 9 yes 9 openings in the overhead compartments as I approached my seat. Delayed flight, 15 minutes to get to next flight and was not helped to get to the other end of the airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time, clean aircraft and friendly crew."
Pros: "The flight was good and with very little turbulance. Pilot did good with avoiding it!"
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous! Why don't they load the last rows first so there are not people standing in the way and holding things up. I don't want to sit on a plane for 20-30 minutes with a child waiting to "go up in the air" its just more confusion. The lines to board were so long it was going into the next boarding area."
Pros: "The pilot and crew responded very well to the delay. Very friendly on the intercom, offered the small things like a full drink and tv access. Good response to a tough situation."
Cons: "Pilot mentioned we would be delayed so we could de-ice, understandable because it was freezing and had snowed all day. his original estimate on the delay was 30 minutes, it took over an hour at least."
Pros: "The agent who checked me in tried to find me a better connection, but in the end, it took me 9 hours to get from Tampa to Montreal. Never made Newark as I Hubbed in Chicago."
Pros: "CHANGE OF FLIGHT WARNINGS"
Cons: "United Airlines needed to repair plane caused a delay. But Safety First ;)"
Cons: "As an international traveler I find it annoying to have to pay for my bags on an internal domestic flight. There should be some reciprocation with partner airlines to cover baggage if coming from international to domestic flights"
Cons: "We boarded 40 minutes late, and there was no communication as to why or how long we would be waiting: Also, it was a full flight and there were no prior requests to check bags or how to board. Boarding took a very long time, once we finally started, because there was very little organization and they were taking bags to check once they didn't fit, while people were still getting on the plane. Also, crew members were holding up the line."
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and was early landing"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "It was a quick effiicient flight. Boarding and security was a breeze."
Cons: "Peanuts and a few movies should not kill their budget. Especially if you have acreens in every seat. Charging $7 for a 2 hour flight is very expensivey"
Cons: "Flight didn't actually take off. Terrible updates regarding flight status."
Pros: "United has become the top low service/high cost Airline. I'm 6'3" and Found myself in a position for hours on end where I could not move my legs. Even with the seat in front of me upright my knees would touch it while my butt was fully up against my seat. Offered is a single drink but not even a lousy bag of pretzels. The entertainment is down to direct tv with a menu that is hard to navigate, earplug connections that need you to hold the plug so it will work and no option to pause or start when you want."
Pros: "NOTHING!!!!!! the worst experience traveling!!!"
Cons: "I did not like the way I was treated AT ALLL!!!! THE UNITED AIRLINES STAFF was HORRIBLE!!!!! NEVER FLYING WITH THEM AGAIN!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and very helpful when my family member became sick on the plane and required a wheelchair. They were very easygoing and accommodating about it."
Cons: "I paid for the tv package both ways, and the movies I had watched were all the same on the way back, which felt like I had wasted money."
Pros: "They tried. Booked on next day out of a different airport. No help with transport or hotel because not their fault."
Cons: "Last flight was deleyed and finally got in the air by 2 and ended up turning around and going back to the airport. Once I got there they told me they didn't have flights for the next 3 days so I was stuck in sanfransico airport by myself after paying over 700 on my ticket."
Pros: "The plane was roomy... The flight attendants were pleasant... The bag checkin was inexpensive... Quality and excellent custoner service. I have traveled many airlines... United is by far my favorite after this experience... Thank you!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 38 minutes. Boarding was not pleasant. Never have a Stewart come by. No entertainment."
Pros: "No problems whatsoever...in fact, we arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "very comfortable ride, no bumps at all."
Cons: "no snacks, didnt have my debit card to pay for the ones for sale"
Pros: "We liked everything we HAD the BEST time!"
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "Not charge us for a soda"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. Felt like a bar in the middle of my back."
Cons: "The flight was delayed one hour because a flight attendant was "stuck in traffic" One hundred and eighty people impacted by a flight attendant. On the flight one of the bathrooms was so disgusting that I didn't even want to use it. When I told the flight attendant, they refused to do anything."
Pros: "Pilot made up for lost time."
Cons: "Not comfortable for the price"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "The seats they don't have much room or move at all"
Pros: "Seemed like it filled from the back so no stepping over others trying to get to our seats. It departed early and arrived early. The pilot spoke several times and was very welcoming. The middle seat give away was fun."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours. Nickle and dime you to death with charges"
Cons: "I was never told it would cost me $55 to have a carry on bag! Ridiculous! $60 if I wanted to check it. There is no beverage or food service. Thank God I always bring snacks on plane rides. MY FLIGHT WAS DELAYED OVER 5 HOURS then we sat on the tarmac as the pilot informed us they were having computer issues (30 more minutes). There is absolutely NO LEGROOM! I am 5'4" and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. No tv or music either. It's like the Yugo of airlines. I would NOT recommend flying this airline EVER!"
Pros: "I was kept in line until it was too late to allow me to get a boarding pass. The 3 groups of travelers before me took an unusually long time as they could not understand why they were not allowed to get boarding passes. The CS Manager did direct me to an airline that I was able to buy full price ticket from."
Cons: "The same excuse was given to every traveler that was in the line with me. I listened to it explained to at least 10 travelers that day. Since that time, I have yet to hear any positive feedback from anyone that travels frequently. You seem to pray on people that do not travel often. The ticket that was purchased for this fight was bought by my wife. She was trying to do me a favor. Maybe some that actually cares about your reputation and would like to see your airlines succeed over time will contact me in an attempt to change my opinion. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "No hassle travel"
Cons: "extra charges for everything"
Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding and de-boarding process. Seemed like there was time on both ends to shorten trip."
Pros: "Easy access, boarding, seating. Nice, new plane with updated amenities."
Cons: "The bag space under the seat in front of me seemed larger before, but it's probably just a misconception."
Pros: "I personally checked everything through Spirit's website and they let you know online that they are a "no frills" airline. If you can fit it in one bag then the cost is perfect."
Cons: "The amount of people who had no clue what they were in for was unnerving. It was a tight fit."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were stranded in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport to find out own way home to Tampa. Spirit refunded us our return flight but was of no help in our rebooking. This was the first and last time I will ever take this airline. They took absolutely no responsibility for their actions and had not concern at all for our well being. Terrible, just terrible. Shame on Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing I will never fly with this airline again"
Cons: "$55.00 for a carry on. Flight delayed for 1.5 hours and still want to charge $3.00 for water. Seats very cramped. Staff not friendly. Check in, the computers were down for 1/2 hour. Should I continue ?"
Pros: "Very little save the fact that the plane was new."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. Low priced at the he outset but by the time they nickel and dime you to death and basically charge for a reasonable sized carry on bag the costs are the same, and at that point you're paying more for less!"
Pros: "That it was short, but that's due to geographical luck .. nothing your airline did."
Cons: "I wish there was in flight wifi and cvs."
Cons: "The kid behind me kept kicking the seat despite me asking him and his mother to please have him stop."
Pros: "The crew was great. The head flight attendant was very funny and the rest of the crew was very nice which is refreshing since most flight attendants act as if they hate their job and annoyed they have to serve you."
Cons: "The leg room was poor, my boyfriend is 6'1 and he was very uncomfortable most of the trip since his knees were digging into the seat in front of him which I'm sure was uncomfortable to the passenger in that seat. Also there wasn't any entertainment on the flight, I'm use to tv screens on the back of seats, even for short flights to florida. It would be nice to have more entertainment and leg room."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to get a seat in the front row, which made the boarding and seat comfortable."
Pros: "Excellence service! The electronic check in was great and easy. The people I talk to on the phone more than willing to help. The hostesses on the plane smiled friendly accommodating. On time pilots and great take off and landing"
Pros: "The cost of one suitcase was ridiculous. Nearly doubled the cost of the flight. Rest was fine."
Pros: "There wasn't much we liked about our experience with Spirit. If I had to say something I would say that it is good there were so few people on both our flights so we were able to stretch out onto vacant seats. Otherwise it would have been intolerable."
Cons: "Where do I start? The worst part was that we were totally uninformed about the Spirit policy of charging an outrageous amount of money for every piece of luggage. It unexpectedly raised the cost of our tickets so much that we would have been better off going with almost any other airlines, which we will do in the future. Bye bye Spirit."
Cons: "Couldn't check in without my spirit password Unclear which line to be in at check in No "hello" at check in At gate flight was over an hour lie no announcement, explanation or apology Flight was so filthy we couldn't sit down"
Pros: "Flight attendants were actually friendly and no attitude. Being on time a bonus"
Pros: "not a darn thing."
Cons: "what a racket they have set up. business news items i've Goggled say they have modeled their company on people only flying them once, yet still they can turn a solid profit. well...it works. never again."
Cons: "delays on trip down and return trip"
Cons: "Was able to get a direct flight to Detroit, but the passenger next to me couldn't accept the seating being so close and uncomfortable. I will only fly Spirit again if it is the last choice"
Pros: "When we checked in at the airport Vicenzzo was very helpful with everything and the lady next who sat next to me, Naomi, was a pleasure to talk to. Other than that I can not say I enjoyed the flight at all."
Cons: "The seats were abusively small with no room to move around. There was no room to put your tray down. I could not even open my laptop all the way. The seats do not recline at all. You have to pay for everything.. even water... It is the most distasteful way to fly. I will do what I can to never fly on Spirit Airline again. I am irritated I have to fly home on this airline."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "the 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "My bag didn't arrive with my flight and they never called me (as they said they would) to say when the bag arrived. I had to call numerous times. Finally, when someone answered the phone, I learned my bag arrived."
Cons: "Folks....this was my first time flying on spirit and all I can say is never again! It all started a couple weeks before the actual trip when I called their customer service number (it's a toll number NOT 1-800) and come to find out their call center is located in Asia. Talk about a language and culture barrier. The individual on the phone was not able to help me out due to their lack of speaking basic English. The trip itself started with a cabin that was disgustingly dirty from the previous flight and yes you WILL get buckled and dimed for everything! Want a Coke? It will cost you 3$. Need a boarding pass? 5$ In fact, to be able to carry on a small average sized suitcase it cost 45$. Seriously! 45$ just to carry on a smal suitcase and that price is just one way! Do yourself a favor and fly with a legacy carrier instead Delta, American, or United). Spirit has horrible customer service, dirty airplanes, and thy will nickle and dime every possible dollar from you! That's all!"
Pros: "not much, direct flight was the only positive"
Cons: "cannot even get a water for under $3.00."
Pros: "They were willing to refund, since it was their fault."
Cons: "Other than that they were completely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything to correct their situation. They told me I'd have to take a flight the following day from an airport an hour and a half away but were unwilling to provide transportation or a hotel. I had to buy another ticket on a different airline day of, which cost me an extra 300. I would highly recommend that no one ever fly Spirit Airlines. I was unaware of their reputation before booking, but since then everyone I have spoken with has said that they knew to never fly Spirit. Somehow I missed the memo."
Cons: "Someone took my window seat and wouldn't move. People next to me kept bumping into me repeatedly."
Cons: "too bumpy a ride"
Pros: "The fact that we actually got to Dallas eventually"
Cons: "Everything was an absolute mess. The crew seemed like a bunch of college kids working for spirit through an internship program. The plane was inevitably delayed for two hours. Once we finally got on the plane, we have to wait another twenty minutes for the fuel truck to come fuel the plane. I'm surprised we even landed in the right state."
Pros: "The aircraft was new and up to date. One of the flight attendants was very rude to you customers. Charging for WATER is reprehensible. Shame on your management for even considering that."
Pros: "The girl that helped us with our suitcases at boarding time was nice and considerate. The airplane staff was pleasant and had a smile on their face. They were also very accommodating."
Cons: "I call Spirit the "gotcha" airline. If you don't plan ahead, this airline will drain you of your funds. Basically, robbery without a gun. Shameful the way your customers are charged for the fees you apply. I now join the ranks of one and done with Spirit. Learned my lesson. Never again! NEVER!"
Pros: "I liked nothing. Crew was pleasant and we boarded smoothly and on time, but that is nothing commendable."
Cons: "No complimentary water and snacks? Scam."
Cons: "Very loud plane"
Cons: "everything costs more website doesn;t explain things well had to call them multliple times to make sure i was understanding their way of doing things they are an outlier and should get with the program if they want to make travel easier for people - which is what we all want"
Pros: "The waiting area"
Cons: "Them wasting 3 hours of my time. Instead of the flight landing in chicago at 5:50pm, they didn't leave tampa until 5:57pm. My seat was dirty with food from the previous passenger. I reserved a rental for 7pm, which I thought would be plenty of time after arriving, but we didn't arrive until 7:25 or so and I couldn't pick up my car until 7:55pm. Will avoid Spirit at all cost. It's not worth the few $ you may save. "Save a penny or so and lose a $". Time is $"
Pros: "Everyone was courteous and professional."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. You are charged for water snd soft drinks."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and so helpful. I fly pretty regularly but this was my first spirit flight. I know that I have found my new airline to solely use because of the flight crew and staff. Thanks so much for the care and kindness that was given to me. I have never experienced air travel at this level truly a goal that other airlines should try to achieve."
Pros: "Had a great aisle seat"
