It has been so bad, that I am thinking of flying with American Airlines again and avoiding the Atlanta Airport all together. Absolutely the worst airport in the country, Delta not much better"
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"
Pros: "Entertaining crew"
Cons: "On time arrival (we were late)."
Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"
Pros: "Don't know yet, because I have not left Korea."
Cons: "Not happy that DELTA changed my flight again and now I arrive (6) hours later in Philly. Longer layover in Detroit is not comforting! Hoping/praying that DELTA doesn't change more on this flight going home!"
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "terrible seat comfort, late departure due to airline’s booking problems"
Pros: "We left early"
Pros: "JFK to Denver the flight Attendants were once again great. Lots of entertainment choices again. The usual rough air coming into DIA."
Cons: "From JFK to Denver the seats were to close for leg room by an inch or two. The temperature was hot most of the flight."
Pros: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."
Pros: "Pilot was courteous, pleasant and kept us informed of flight status."
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Cons: "Seats have no leg room!!!"
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"
Pros: "Smooth , fast, comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. No smoking in Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The staff were friendly, the flight fast and calm."
Cons: "Nothing that can be done, just tough being 6'5" in a connection plane."
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."
Cons: "my flight from JFK to Cancun had entertainment (TV, movie screen, headphones, etc). This one did not. Was kinda disappointed."
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "If flight is full all the time get a bigger plane"
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Pros: "I love Delta. Smooth boarding. Quality service. Keep it up!"
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "The attendants"
Cons: "The delay and no free wifi."
Cons: "The connecting flight kept getting progressively later as we waited in the airport. We arrived home at midnight, 2.5 hours later than expected."
Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow in Philly (again)"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "Food was okay.."
Cons: "Had a bulk head seat that turned out to be not one."
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and we had a safe trip in general"
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: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Pros: "The options for entertainment were great."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. I received errors when trying to access gogoinflight on my tablet, even when I had the most updated app. Therefore I was unable to use the app during my flight to Philadelphia. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane. So we waited in the plane for the whole hour and half while a maintenance issue was being resolved. The delay almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport kiosks, service desks, and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."
Cons: "It's AA, never again"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous. Highly professional and helpful."
Cons: "Aside from flying through a huge storm which is out of anyone's control and arriving 20 minutes early only to have to sit on the plan as the terminal was occupied, my trip was great."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Pros: "We were very happy with the crew. They were very helpful and attentive throughout. One of the flight crew members even found me at customs to return a toy we had inadvertently left that belonged to my 13 month old. She certainly did not have to do that, so we are very thankful. Unfortunately, I did not catch her name."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines we have traveled that give priority to people traveling with children, American Airlines does not. That would be something that would be helpful for traveling parents. Allowing people with children to board first and get off the plane first would make things better for all passengers. Planes are also outdated. We have been traveling with other airlines that have individual screens. Much easier for people to travel on long flights when they have individual entertainment."
Cons: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. I got home at 1 am instead of 10 pm."
Pros: "generally on time"
Pros: "Nothing but delays, cancellations, and rude people"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Cons: "Really uncomfortable seats, very cramped. Made me feel aick."

Pros: "Quick flight, smooth ride i.e. no turbulence, on-time departure, lovely crew"
Cons: "No real food options as I was starving"
Pros: "Comfortable enough"
Cons: "No films"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."
Pros: "On-time departure, and on-time arrival. Just the way I like it."
Pros: "Transport to international terminal was a breeze"
Cons: "Very few food vendors open in the international flight area"

Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Cons: "The Kayak interface messed up my flight schedule and I ended up getting a non refundable and unchangeable ticket. I lost all my money on that ticket. No more Kayak for me. Ever."
Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."
Cons: "The woman next to me had her computer angled toward my face with the brightness all the way up. On a red eye. It was rude, and she prevented me from sleeping at all on the flight."
Pros: "There was a delay due to thunderstorms and the female pilot handled it extremely well"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."
Pros: "Flight was timely and crew was very nice - good flight!"
Pros: "Fact I got home safe."
Cons: "Feeling like we are cattle or sheep and no personal interaction at all. No customer service and everything has a price."
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
Pros: "Even though the plane was having a lot of issues the crew stayed positive and the captain came out and spoke to us directly. Even though it was a crappy flight I was happy it wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "The plane had almost no AC and there was a landing gear issue that needed to be fixed. So that held us up for an hour at the gate. The plane ride was pretty hot due to the lack AC."
Cons: "Flight never happened. American Airlines saved the day. It seems to me, the issues with United are deeper than we ever thought. I was highly disappointed with their inability to rectify the situation."
Cons: "i sat in front of the exit row which was feeezing. My boyfriend and I needed extra blankets because it is a red eye and sleeping is important but they would not give them to us. We were pretty much shivering the entire way home and could not sleep."
Pros: "The crew was ok for the type of company they are."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrendous. Really uncomfortable. No TV, no outlet to plug in my own device. And garbage wifi."
Cons: "Flight attendant were not courteous"
Cons: "Lost bags and unable to have bags delivered as instructed. Unprofessional driver and still no resolution for receiving lost item."

Cons: "4 hour delay, no power in basic economy only power if you upgraded to economy comfort."
Cons: "Internet was down the whole time"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Safe flight, that's what matters."
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner. Long hair extension on empty seat beside me. How did they miss that???"
Cons: "Not enough leg room or seat size. Just uncomfortable."
Pros: "Still stuck here"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "Boarding on time, wi-Fi entertainment and staff were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to suggest"
Pros: "I did like that we boarded quickly and efficiently. The attendants were very respectful and kept very quiet throughout their food and beverage service so others could sleep which was quite professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that the only guy on the flight that kept his light on the entire trip had to sit next to me. I was able to sleep regardless, and I understand that it is out of the control of the crew or myself or anyone but that guy... but that was less than desirable. Other than that, great flight."
Cons: "What food? A little snack mix. And once again, needed to get in and out with a shoe horn."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned"
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "No entertainment screens & last seat didn't recline."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "Professional airline. Comfortable seating. On time. Most impressive airline I've flown with in a very long time."
Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Cons: "Had to pay for my own shuttle to the train station (an hour away) and sit on an overcrowded train for hours. Extremely disappointed. Flight was canceled do to "air traffic control." No attempt was made to put me on other carrier's flights even though there were open seats with another airline."
Pros: "Boarding was nice, and fast, but inly because I'm handicapped. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay $4/2hrs for internet/movies for a 3 hour flight....$8 to watch a movie on a 8" screen?? Come on! If you have it available, why isn't it free or included in $600 ticket price? I'm 6'0" tall and weigh 218lbs and I felt like a sardine in a can. Seats are WAY cramped! They probably are comfortable for a 7 year old girl...."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Pros: "Everything was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to pay for Internet to watch airline movies on my device. Not enough leg room."

Cons: "No drink, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate then delayed again on the plane brocade they couldn't find someone to fill the fuel tank. Once that was complete, we had to wait quite some time before the slip came to the plane to be signed off on. The last issue was that they couldn't get the aircraft pushed out of the gate. The only positive was that my bags arrived this time."
Pros: "Non-existent! !! Canceled AFTER the first leg if the flight....leaving us stranded."
Cons: "The baggage check in process was unorganized and slow. You need better signage and people that can give clear direction."
Cons: "service and help assistance"
Pros: "smooth flight, easy check in, nice service, hassle free"
Cons: "no recliners, long wait from landing to gate"
Pros: "Cabin crew friendly Left on time Check in staff was thoughtful. Concerned about our late passenger arrival"
Cons: "Seats in plane do not recline. No reading material on board"
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "Difficulty with phone contact. Almost impossible to get a live person."
Pros: "Left on time, got in on time"
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
Pros: "Compared to Frontier I liked the smooth moving lines for bag check ins, and a ground person helping folks backed up on flights that were boarding and in a panic. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "It's hard when we can't get a beverage or snack anymore on a plane."
Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Flight was on time, no trouble finding overhead storage for my bag."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible. No complimentry drinks, tiny tray table."
Pros: "I am puzzled about how can I get the receipt of the tickets. would you please tell me by email? My email is email@example.com. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "There was delays both ways. No room to move. Couldn't sleep on the way home. Food and water had to be purchased."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Pros: "Sprit ground crew distroyed my luggage"
Pros: "Longer leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was not clear . I received a notice on gate 9 but the airport shows 7. Later after staying at gate 7 for 30min at least, we were told to move to 9. Confusing to us."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Changed gate multiple times, 1 hr 15 MN late"
Pros: "The flight and crew were good! Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The add ons for carry on luggage and seating. I had to pay $45 each for carry ons and $10 a seat to choose my seats so my wife and I could sit together! Terrible"
Cons: "Always delayed or canceled. Too many restrictions. They just need to stop."
Pros: "It was the cheapest"
Cons: "Almost everything."
Cons: "The airline did not accommodate an accident on a freeway. United, American and Delta all did."
Pros: "The young lady at the desk tried her to update us as the information was made available to her ."
Cons: "There were no comfort with the seats."
Pros: "Space for walking and sitting"
Cons: "2 hour delay! No snack or drink. Crew was an hour late!"
Pros: "We departed St.Thomas on time."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. Also, we were shocked at the hiding fees assocated with seats and carry on baggage."
Pros: "The Agent was very accommodating and pleasant. Thumbs up!!"
Cons: "The fees for luggage, toooooooo costly. The carryone should be free and pay for the check in bags. I was not a happy camper."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Extremely small seat space"
Cons: "Horrible. You will get charged even if you blink. Seats doesn't recline. Want some water? Pay for it. While other flights allow 50lbs in your checked bag, they only give you 50lb. You pay if you check in at the airport. WHAT? You pay for a CARRY ON."
Pros: "They sould not charge for personal bag which is one bigger than their size, beside no leg room neither seat do not recalain seem got punishment for entire flight"
Cons: "late boarding. late takeoff. no updates. disaster."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and flight was great when it finally arrived."
Cons: "Flight being delayed numerous times and it seemed like the workers who boarded us had no clue what was going on"
Pros: "We didnt receive our suitcase in GA (12/22). we waited at the airport for 3 horus and they couldnt figure out where the suitcase went. Then we filled a claim form. my Fatherinlaw was in the car waiting for us for 3 hours. We went home and realized my meds are in the suitcase. I called a few times but they still couldnt track the bag. We had to go shopping for clothes because we had a party that night and I had to buy cosmetic, clothes, toilterites, etc. it was a waste of time. Time I could be spending with my family. Me, my husband and my inlaws called a few times next day (12/23) asking for an update but no one had a clue where the bag is. At this point, we had no idea where to bag is so we had to go shopping again and buy more clothes for next few days. Again, more time, money, gas in car, other people time that had to drive us invested… it was very frustrating. I take a lot of meds which makes me anxious and this created a huge stress on my Christmas vacation. All of my gifts I got for our family was in the suitcase. This was a very frustrating time for me and my husband, not knowing if the family will have gifts ontime. Also, my laptop charger was in the suitcase so I had to take days off from work. We called again a few times on 12/24. we called in again and no answer. We drove all the way to the airport and spoke to a really nice lady. We were at the airport for hours. She couldn’t track the luggage so we went home disappointed. Keep in mind, this was Christmas eve and I could have spent all this time shopping, driving to the airport, to busy stores. By this time I gave up on the bag and accepted we have lost it… I was very very upset because all of my gifts, new clothes I got for the vacation, my cosmetic, my husband’s electronics… We had more than 3K worth stuff in the suitcase. I couldn’t even get hold of the customer service to talk to someone. This was Christmas eve.. and my husband was still trying to call someone. Finally got hold of someone and they said that the bag was in Philly and will get to the house next day 1pm. Ok, great, atleast they could track the bag… Anyways, 1pm next day, no bag..we tried calling all day, but no answer. Finally my husband got hold of someone and they said that the bag will be deliver Xmas night. WOW! But ok. Whtever at this point. We waited all evening.. then called again. They didn’t answer. Finally around 10pm they answered and told my husband that we are 5th in line for the bag delivery and they wont be able to get to us until late in the night. My husband agreed to the time. They called us 230am and asked to verify address which I am glad they did because they had a wrong address. Anyways, my husband was on the phone texting/ calling for directions and finally the bag came at 4am…. The suitcase was damaged. Gladly nothing was missing… HOWEVER, the frustration for the whole week made my Christmas trip a really bad one… I am very big on customer service so it frustrates me that we were not able to contact anyone to get answer.. I understand that the luggage could get lost but not being able to track it for days while you are on vacation in a different state??!!! It was the most frustrating thing me and my family had to deal with. Also, I paid $50 both sides to check in a bag which I didn’t use. I got the bag 4am 12/26, the day I flew back home… so I paid all that money to check in my bag for stuff I never used. Glad I was able to give gifts to my family the day after Christmas. Also, all the stuff I bought for the week including clothes, cosmetic, charger so I can work from home, etc. I had to ship the stuff back which I paid for…. AWFUL experience."
Pros: "I had a row to myself on the way back. That was about it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation given, Spirit charges exorbitant bag fees even for carry-on luggage, which isn't made very clear when you book. Charging more for carry-on bags instead of checked bags means that I had to waste even more time waiting for my bag to come through baggage claim on both legs."
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and uncomfortable; flight delayed so long I missed my time for rental car....had to get another from adifferent company."
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline. They claim to be affordable, but charge for basic flight accessories. A carry-on costs $55, and a checked bag costs $52. You can't even get free water in-flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight. Spirit cancelled my entire ticket because of that. The round trip was cancelled. Nonsense. I lost all my money. I had to book another ticket."
Pros: "Spirit Airlines is a complete nightmare"
Pros: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did nothing to help me get another flight. They tried pushing me back 4 days and said I was taking the risk booking with them. I ended up having to scramble to find a new flight and paying a lot more money. I was not happy."
Cons: "nickel and diming everything, seats did not go back, could not even read a magazine sue the tiny tray tables. Will never fly Spirit ever again, Flights crew was lovely."
Pros: "I made it to Vegas and back to Philadelphia safely."
Pros: "Rest is fine"
Cons: "No Complimentary Food (no water) is really worst"
Pros: "I got the big seat which makes a huge difference"
Cons: "Having to pay for water"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "upcharge for everything. seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was cheap and last minute"
Cons: "The service was not what I excepted. The plane did not leave on time. Other customers seem to have problems as well."
Pros: "We got to Philly early. We got in the plane rather quickly"
Cons: "Just about everything else. The crew decent."
Cons: "I don't like that they allow people with carry-ons larger than the specified sizes. I was careful to follow the guidelines, which were hard to find anyway. I don't like the credit card sales pitch on each flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Had to pay again 55$ for my luggage. Drinks, no recliner, no tv no internet. Basically paid 500$ for everything. Worst airline, never again'"
Cons: "The water could have been free. I am aware it was a no frills flight."
Pros: "Boarding process and speed of flight were acceptable."
Cons: "The airplanes are cramped and uncomfortable with no ability to recline and very little legroom. No charging outlets for electronics. Food, drinks, and carry-on luggage come at a premium cost. After totaling up the cost of the flight, it ended up about the same as a better airline."
