Cons: "Refreshments served not close enough to start of flight. Boarding delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great! Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"
Pros: "Each seat had its own built in free movie option."
Cons: "We were delayed for three hours and they really had no other options and didn't offer any apology gifts in condolence. I had two small children and they didn't even offer a snack."
Cons: "We were packed like sardines in economy class but the in-flight entertainment selection made it bearable."
Pros: "I specifically book with Alaska Airlines bc in all my flights I have never had bad service. Delta, Continental, not so much. The crew was great. We hit quite a bit of turbulence but everyone was calm and the pilot sounded in control so no problem."
Cons: "Tons of empty seats but airfare was still on the high side"
Pros: "How they saw my needs comfort me. She even came from around the desk to hung me. I am so thankful for all who assisted in this time of need . They are great."
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "Fast baggage delivery"
Cons: "Seats too small. Lavatory too small. Sink in lavatory too small"
Pros: "overall great flight - service was over the top flight early arrival"
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and responsive to questions when we were trying to figure out how long it would take to actually leave."
Cons: "We had to wait over an hour and a half to fly out of Nashville due to waiting for fuel to be brought to the plane. It would've been nice to know that we'd be delayed because I was traveling with a pet and I would've preferred to have her walk around the airport before having to place her in her carrier under the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours more than I anticipated."
Pros: "Crew was very good and respectful. The pilot constantly kept informing us of flight route and possible changes. Even made the passengers aware of an amazing light storm outside the aircraft that was impressive sight to see."
Cons: "The seat I sat in felt as though I was slipping off of it. i was constantly having to reposition and get comfortable. My lone issue."
Cons: "No food!!"
Pros: "Flying on a Virgin America plane during the transition and it was a nice comfortable 4 hour flight. No complaints."
Pros: "Smooth. Peaceful. Easy. On time."
Pros: "There seemed to be more legroom than usual and the flight attendants were responsive. There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from and passengers could order from a small selection of free beverages during the flight."
Cons: "A small snack of some sort would have been nice, as would headphones. Despite the selection of films to watch, they had to be viewed as close captioned (which not all were) unless passengers had brought their own headohones. It would also have been pleasant to see even one of the flight attendants smile at least once."
Pros: "Everything and everyone was awesome"
Cons: "You have to purchase snacks. Such a big company and it can’t offer free snack(cookies or pretzels)???"
Pros: "Everyone is so helpful and cheery"
Cons: "Cramped seats not much room. Kisok to check bags hard to use or did work at all"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Not excited about the sausage & egg skillet for breakfast."
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "Direct flighy"
Pros: "Overall excellent service, friendly and professional"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, flight crew was awesome, engaging..."
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Cons: "the meanest most rude racist hostess ever! her insinuations and degrading way of speaking to me left me speechless. i will file a format complaint and might even take it further."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Pros: "Cheese plate was great as always"
Cons: "Late and chaotic boarding. No clear lines and just a mob herding toward the counter to board."
Pros: "Got us to SeaTac on time uneventfully. Flying Q400s now, so smoother ride than previous puddle-jumpers. Quick and easy security screening. Good coffee. Free beer & wine offered. At least one person took 'em up on the offer"

Pros: "Overall great."

Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."
Pros: "Well organized. Efficient. Good round trip BNA-SEA. My first experience with Alaska, but definitely not my last."

Cons: "Had to check carry on and go to baggage carousel delaying my getting out of the airport"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding.

Pros: "The quality of the JetBlue team was the best I have experienced in years on ANY airline, domestic or international!"
Cons: "Nothing, it could not have gone better."
Cons: "The first flight was severely delayed, leaving me only 2 minutes to catch my connecting flight. There was no warning or good explanation for the hour delay on the tarmac. The original connection would have left me with about an hour for a layover, which I was fine with. Thankfully, the assigned gate for the second flight was close to the entrance. I almost didn’t make it, though."
Pros: "When the flight finally boarded it was quick"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours with no explanation of why... Flight attendants were rude and annoyed."
Pros: "I love flying JetBlue great job to all you were employees"

Cons: "I am an no carbs diet and I was hoping for low carb snack but nothing was available"
Pros: "The steward had a sense of humor which always helps."
Cons: "There wasn’t anyone at the JetBlue check in area to take bags when I arrived about two hours before the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Got home at 3am. Ruined the next day getting in so late"
Pros: "Although inconvenient, Capt kept us fully appraised. Excellent crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good legroom. Big delay so I did not get to sleep at hotel until 2 am. The flight was very bumpy. The delay was not posted in the airport monitors. Only found out when I got to gate. Flight attendants had blankets to sell on a cold plane that warmed up as the flight progresses."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "staff not telling the truth to the passengers"
Pros: "Great service from the crew and in flight snacks and entertaininment."

Pros: "Having an A320 on a 2 hour nonstop"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Pros: "My daughter has a very severe peanut allergy. She was treated very well on her flight yesterday. Even though Jet Blue doesn't serve peanuts on their flights, they still gave her a pre-boarding pass so she could wipe down her area just in case someone on an earlier flight had something that could have caused a reaction. They also created a "barrier" around her by specifically talking to people in the seats around her and asking that they not open their own snacks that may contain peanut or peanut products. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jet Blue!!! We will definitely use you again!!"
Pros: "Departure was almost on time, but they made up for it by arriving early. All in all an excellent flight."
Cons: "Really don't have a complaint, crew was excellent, only thing I could nitpick would be slightly late departure.. But again we more than made up for that in flight"
Pros: "I missed the flight as my first flight got delayed. When I got to the gate there was no Turkishairlines representative. 12 hours after the flight still at airport without any clear answer from Turkish airways."
Cons: "Zero costumer service. Knowing that I might miss my first leg I checked the possible next flights and even though there are two flights next day, the prices tripled in 2 hour (from 1300 to 3900 USD). When I asked for rebook I was told that there is no available seat in any of those two flights. Did a quick search and found out there are seats but are left to milk desperate passengers."
Pros: "average trip: boarding, timeliness, uneventful (what you wish for on a flight)"
Cons: "-Entertainment system wasn't working, so made for a long 6 hours. -Flight crew weren't self-aware - had conversations with each other in loud voices at the back of the plane that could be heard by passengers several rows away. Many people were trying to sleep with no entertainment system working."
Cons: "Crew not so pleasant No food"
Pros: "Everything about Jet Blue was excellent. Especially impressive was their baggage handling. In Ft. Meyers, my bag was on the baggage claim before I got there. In Newark, where baggage claim in usually lousy, my bag was there in less than 5 minutes. I'm definitely going to fly Jet Blue more. Lew"
Pros: "I like the boarding process which they board the end of the aircraft first (row 20-25) then move up (15-25) then up. I think it's very sufficient. The entertainment was good even though I thought more choices can be available"
Cons: "The seat is super uncomfortable... I couldn't sleep at all even though I was very tired...."
Pros: "Smooth event the entire way"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, going out of their way to find spots for the few people left who still had carry on baggage. They tried very hard to make sure everyone had their luggage with them, which I thought was very nice as I have not seen that in any other airplane. They were also very polite and generous with the snacks and drinks, and came around multiple times with garbage bags."
Cons: "The plane itself was incredibly old and the seats were worn down with marks and smudges. It smelled quite bad but at least the TV's still worked."
Pros: "Great service... excellent smooth flight."
Cons: "Rows of seats are too close together and small seats for an international flight and I am a small person!"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Pros: "Understood there were thunderstorms up and down the northeast coast. But it is always helpful for the team at the gate to keep folks waiting there with 20 min delay here and there. I just got them on my phone."
Cons: "Seats that don't recline especially when the person in front of you can recline. They end up in your lap"
Cons: "This delay made me miss my rental car reservation so I have to find another car for the night. Which cost me 100$ when I already had a car booked. Then since I didn't get there in time they canceled my reservation and find a new rental for the week. First bad experience with jet blue"
Cons: "The positioning of the TV controls on the top of the armrest means that it becomes useless as an armrest. I had to hold my right arm in the air so the passenger next to Me could use his controls. I was in a middle seat. The fix would Be to have the controls on the side Of the armrest like on most other airlines"
Cons: "Flight attendants and First mate didn't show up on time, they called in the reserves, Then got on plane with them and the planes logs weren't up to date, the grounds crew then left to do another plane. Once we got off, we were informed that NJ airspace was restricted at the later departure time, and had to fly extremely out of the way. 1:45 later and arrived to destination, Missed train and and stuck now."
Pros: "The customer service was great. They compensated me for the delay. The seats were spacious."
Cons: "A 6 hour flight delay. Luckily me for my connecting flight wasn't until the following afternoon. Had it been earlier I would have been extremely upset because it could have derailed my entire travel plans."
Pros: "Empty seat between us. Entertainment was good. Bags made it to the baggage claim before we did!"
Cons: "Flight attendant had an attitude when I boarded. I went to put my carryon item in overhead compartment and she questioned me asking my seat number. My seat included a carryon and she had an attitude for no reason."
Cons: "Had flight delay affecting my connecting flight."
Cons: "Lots of delays and sometimes confusing communications from the airlines about departure times."
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "We eventually left."
Cons: "Crew was not attentive. Temperature was cold."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and flight was clean"
Cons: "AC was broke took long time to get ac on we all sweat to death on the plan as it was broke and portable starter didn't work so they had to get a 2nd one. Then stewart on plan says American just doesn't have good maintenance on there equipment that is a red flag for sure."

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."

Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was nice, there was a lot of room on the plane because it was so delayed."
Cons: "It could be on time."
Pros: "not atg all"
Cons: "I paid for a preferred seat and the passenger seated next to me was so large that he could not buckle his seatbelt and totally squished me into the window. I called the stewarddess over and I was haphazardly moved to an aisle seat next to a smaller passenger. I was then bumped into repeatedly by"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."

Cons: "Only half the crew worked"
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."

Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. No food offered."
Pros: "While it wasn't Singapore Air ultra quality, the staff did a nice job for an USA-based airline. I appreciated the option of watching first run movies. There was one I wanted to see but would never have made the time to see it in the theater. Done."
Cons: "Sadly, I am a big guy (2XL to 3XL). Halfway through the flight, my left thigh was throbbing from the pressure. I cannot afford first class travel so this will presumably be an issue until I drop the weight."
Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"

Cons: "2 hours of delay to take the airplane in Orlando and they changed the flight to Charlotte when it was planned it would go to Philadelphia but it was not a big deal to me."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."

Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Touch screens on every seat was amazing! Made the flight go very fast! Wonderful movie selections."

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "The airline should have reviewed who was delayed on their connection and wait at least 5-10 minutes to accommodate me for a delayed connection. We ended up at the gate for the final leg of my flight and the door closed 30 seconds prior. Very poor internal communications and lack of customer care."
Pros: "Boarding fast"
Cons: "Bus took forever"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Cons: "Baggage issues!"
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "The only positive to this flight was that after sitting on hold with United's customer service, it took less than 10 minutes for them to grant me a refund."
Cons: "I ended up backing out of this flight and booking out of a different airport and with a different airline bc apparently this flight with United has been seriously delayed (4+ hours) multiple times before. We were told that the flight was cancelled for the 2 days prior."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Cons: "No drinks"
Pros: "The flight crew and gate personnel were courteous and professional., as were theTSA workers."
Cons: "Seating was crowded and uncomfortable. My seat wouldn't recline."
Pros: "I was pleased with the nonstop option from Chattanooga to Chicago."
Cons: "I have a bag that I have travelled with as a very on for years and I know that it fits in the overhead compartments of this size plane, but on both outbound and inbound I was made to gate check. Upon boarding there was plenty of room in the bins. The waiting at the end of each flight made the gateway crowded and replanting inefficient. Either have all bags checked upon check in with stricter guidelines or put overhead items into a lottery system."
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "No room for bags"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "While we were stuck at the airport they gave us soda and snacks"
Cons: "After all that they couldn't even give us tv to watch complimentary. I would say that the 8 times I've flown united the flights been delayed at least 5."
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - the pretzel packs looked like they were from 2007 and stale but I don't care about that. The pilots landing there and back were like we landed on clouds - not a single bump or jolt. The flights left on time and arrived early. The staff at gate and plane were so helpful and happy and knew how to do their jobs and not opposed to doing it with a smile. I have flown over the world and these two flights on united were the best."
Cons: "The important things were perfect - the pretzels were stale but who really cares about pretzels! The pilot is the most important and they were great!"
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "Air traffic control stopped all flights to Chicago, so my itinerary got changed and ended up taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Because it didn't go anywhere."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Better bag prices"
Pros: "Excelent cree"
Cons: "They are overbooking flights."
Cons: "At checking the machine wasn't reading our passports and then we also got charged for luggage at security while the desk rep said that was not applicable."
Cons: "Use American Airlines"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"
Cons: "Not having to check my bag...$55"
Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."
Cons: "- they call for parents and children’s and later they forgot us at the side. - No AC... - Bad Actitud from the stewardess. - 1:30 waiting for my baggage. - Incomplete luggage."
Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"
Cons: "Helen the superviser dont let me go she is no good superviser no good no frienley no nathing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Timely and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Bare minimum but no complaints"
Pros: "The flights where on time"
Cons: "The lauggage I checked in arrived in San Jose completely demolished. I can't even carry it anymore. There is a big whole in my bag pack, so my close are hanging out and the shoulder strap is ripped of completely."
Pros: "STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE NOT WORTH THE SAVINGS AND YOU REALLY DON'T SAVE THAT MUCH AFTER YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING"
Cons: "THIS IS A HORRIBLE COMPANY"
Cons: "No beverage additional seat and carry on charge."
Pros: "Everything it was nice"
Cons: "Spirit canceled the flight and had to find me another one"
Pros: "Getting to destination safe."
Cons: "Too .many to talk about. But the main thing is the airplanes are uncomfortable. The seats are awfully tight. The carryon baggage fee is highway robbery. I cannot wait for more competitive flights from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. I only use Spirit for my Costa Rica trips."
Cons: "Delayed, poor service"
Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Pros: "So many add ons - you have to pay for a carryon. No upholstery on the backs of seats, tiny tray tables, no free water. Crowded. But we landed safe."
Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."
Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"
Pros: "seats need better cushions"
Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."
Cons: "The take off was late, but the arrival was almost on time."
Cons: "Everything, complete lack of professionalism. You shouldn't even list this airline as an option. My trip was hell."
Pros: "a flight attendant was attentive"
Cons: "$82 for overweight bag; wouldn't let me remove stuff"
Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."
Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""
Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."
Pros: "the pilot and the attendants. soooooo nice."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "After an hour and a half on the plane, passengers were offered a glass of water and a small cookie. After the flight was cancelled, we waited in line for up to 3 hours for re-booking. No effort was made to make passengers feel comfortable, and communication of options/process was minimal, leading to a lot of confusion."
Pros: "The boarding process was fast, which was nice. However, that is due to one of the things we did not like..."
Cons: "It cost money to carry on a bag! If it had been a small amount... $10-$15 or so, we would have shrugged it off, since the ticket price was lower than other airlines. However, to carry on a bag, it cost $53. To check a bag, it cost $50!! So no matter what, you are spending AT LEAST $50 more EACH WAY! If you were planning on carrying on a bag and checking, then you're really screwed. We were not informed of this when purchasing tickets. The airline hits you with it at check-in, so you really have no choice. Also, on the flight, there was no complimentary drinks. This doesn't bother me at all when it's a short flight, but for a flight that is over three hours, I feel it's the least they can do to offer a beverage. What also made the flight uncomfortable was that the seats did not recline, and the "tray table" was simply decoration. So even if I had decided to purchase a beverage, I would have no where to set it down because the tray table had no place for a cup. It was not big enough to even place a book or laptop on. It was a four hour flight, so I was planning on reading and working on my computer, but that did not end up happening. I would never use Spirit again. It was only $40 or so less than other airlines, and that is DEFINITELY NOT worth it."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"
Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."
Cons: "All the extra fees for baggage."
Cons: "The ticket counters are a fiasco. I was charged several times for baggage. The attendant at the ticket counter refused to look at my receipt, just telling me to repay at the kiosk. We missed our connection, along with hundreds of other Spirit fliers. EVERYONE I talked with downed Spirit, indicating you wear poor customer service like a badge of honor. I spent an inordinate amount of extra money for my "inexpensive" flight. I am so utterly disappointed."
Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."
Pros: "La atención fue excelente y a pesar de todos los problemas que tuve me trataron de solucionar todo en el acto. Me pagaron hotel y alimentos"
Cons: "Se atrasó 4 horas al salir de Lima, llegue justa para la coneccion y resultó ser que no estaba chequeada para mí vuelo a San José CR por lo que no pudieron embarcarme y me tuve que quedar hasta el día siguiente en FOURT Louderdale. Asientos sin reclinar en un vuelo de 5 horas de noche! Fue incomodo"
Cons: "Baggage fee"
Cons: "Waiting to check in was horrible, stood in line for one hour,..someone was heated clearing missed his flight another couple missed flight. Why does it takes so long to reroute your guest. There were 10 or so agents way down the other in and am excorted in a line with three agents.. then one goes on break. Then a supervisor clearly upset, everyone giving her hugs..darn it all you are busy. then two guys who look like IT people start working on the computers..Man!"
Cons: "This was a terrible flight experience with awful customer service. I was scheduled for flight 498, Houston to San Jose. This flight was cancelled after sitting around for 3 hours due to a flight attendant not showing up. This was deemed as uncontrollable, which I have no idea how your staff members mishap is not controllable. We then had to drive 4 hours North to Dallas to catch flight 972 at 6 AM, which was also delayed. We had to go to Dallas because there was no other Houston flight until Saturday night. Once in Ft. Lauderdale, we boarded and de-boarded our flight, due to a pilots flight hours being over the limit. This is deemed controllable. I don't understand how two similar situations are deemed controllable and un-controllable. I lost money on hotels, time, taxi's, and gas. Spirit owes everyone of this flight a voucher for the future."
Cons: "Everything. Delays. Cancelled flights. Missed connections"
