Cons: "No pre flight service in first class even though we sat at the gate for an extra 30 minutes."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was no power outlet."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "Baggage claim number was wrong. They almost took my bag away"
Cons: "Overall good business class trip."
Cons: "The crew seemed annoyed and not into it."
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Cons: "Need more room"
Cons: "PHX airport baggage claim was a mess. I had to wait 40 min to pick up the luggages."
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Pros: "The crew was great, efficient and professional."
Cons: "My tv was broken and only played maximum volume."
Pros: "Never even made it on this flight because the first flight was ruined and delayed severely"
Cons: "The fact that my travel plans were entirely derailed and I had to book with another airline"
Cons: "We were told to board quickly so we could leave on time, boarded and sat for more than a half hour. The landing at Monterey was dreadful, hit hard first touchdown and then two more bounces."
Cons: "Only snacks available at 5am"
Pros: "Bos to Rome via jfk. Both flights easy in all ways. Grrat first class seat one first flight and quite good bus class on second. New Flagship Lounge a real plus."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Very cold."
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Cons: "A fellow passenger used the restroom too late in the flight making us do anther circle around FWA. Oh well somebody couldn't hold it."
Cons: "We sat in Charlotte on the runway and had to run to our connection. The airport seems too small for the amount of traffic. We usually try to avoid Charlotte, but it was the only way to use frequent flyer miles"
Cons: "No message to call with passengers with kids to board first or any military personnel boarding first."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "Not having boarding passes for the entire trip and not checking luggage thru to Charlotte was a hassle."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, plenty of coffee. Great service."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "The plane had been on the ground for 6 hours prior boarding time, yet we leave until 1 hour late. Waited for the food to be loaded and then waited for paperwork to be signed. Really?"
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew are nice with the people"
Cons: "Too crowded not able to take my other luggage on board."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."
Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Cons: "Being stuck in a high dollar city for an additional night when i should have made it to the lower intermediary city and flown standby the next day."
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Pros: "The cookies were good"
Cons: "The gangplank was broken. It took so long for them to ascertain the situation, move the broken gangplank away, move the plane from gate B15 to B16, load passengers & luggage and take off, that I missed my connection in LaGuardia. I had to get a standby flight & thankfully got on. Why wasn't that equipment checked out long before it was used?"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full"
Cons: "We booked on British Air, but got American Airlines. Something I didn't realize. I don't like Amercan Airlines! No internet, no tv. Only overhead tv too far away to see from my seat and no choices Old plane"
Pros: "I made it to NY somehow"
Cons: "Everything. I have 2 roller bags I carry on to every flight I have ever taken and they charged me $25 per bag to check because it was a "snug" fit into their dimension box. Also gave no snacks and only half can refreshments, no entertainment."
Pros: "The best part about my flight was the plane got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "This was my first time flying American in years and now I remember why. Very cramped flight with no leg room, my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me.. Because they charge for checking bags, everybody else had two carry ons and there was no room for my one single back pack in the overhead bin so I was forced to sit with it under the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and the flight was smooth and on-time (both departure and landing)."
Cons: "The seats are *tiny* and cramped. The aisle is so narrow that you can't roll a standard sized rolling carry-on suitcase because you're constantly catching on the seats. The 'entertainment' is the old-style 'everyone watches the same thing on tiny monitors' as opposed to seatback monitors."
Crew was professional. I liked the captain giving us occasional updates.
Long check in line. Only one person working the counter. Love the nonstop flight.
Flight itself was ok - just a low fare airline that charges for everything from printing a boarding pass to selecting seats on the plane. At the end of the day, I don't think we saved much over Southwest and there was a lot more stress worrying about the weight of the bags - we were over anyway at a cost of $50 (3 pounds over).
This flight not too much to like. .5lbs and they were gonna charge us $50. No one on the flight had a personality. Literally they all just stood there with a frown on their face. My 3 year old who is always cheerful spoke to all the ladies and they all just said hi in a somber tone. Very disappointing. Got charged for two drinks when paying with my Allegiant Mastercard. Should have gotten one free. Just a disappointing flight experience.
Everything went splendidly
Pros: "The flight from CVG to LAS pretty quick"
Cons: "Allegiance staff at Check-in staff are very rude AMD full of themselves, instead of explaining they expect every traveler know policies of allegiant, there are no boarding pass scanners and to print for you they want $5 if not they force to download their app so that you can get the boarding pass that can be read by TSA scanners ridiculous!!"
Cons: "They left on time with 46 pax and took over a 2 hour delay. Then my bag did not show up."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."
Pros: "Crew was friendly but did not enforce wearing of masks and deplaning was chaotic to say the least with everyone pushing to get off the plane"
Cons: "Enforce the airline’s own policy of wearing masks. About 1/4 of the passengers of the waiting to get on the plane at PIE did not wear a mask in the terminal, even though it is the policy of the airport. Chaotic deplaning in BNA with all passengers rushing to the front of the plane trying to get off. Rock hard very narrow seats."
Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."
Cons: "They charge $50 for a carry on bag!!!"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Pros: "Early boarding, early taxi, efficient fly time. Great flight!"
Pros: "Crew there and back. Professional and fun"
Cons: "When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not."
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Pros: "Very efficient. You cannot beat the price. All I expected is to get there."
Cons: "The plane was very clean and looked new, the seats were comfortable but did not recline. I missed that."
Cons: "it was very hard to hear the stewardess"
Pros: "Price and direct flights to popular destinations."
Cons: "No frills. Charging $5 for a printed boarding pass seems a bit excessive"
Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Pros: "The flight left on time and was fine."
Cons: "This flight was at a small airport and we waited in line for security longer than at a large airport. There were 5 flights going through security at the same time with nothing scheduled later. Why not spread them out a bit and save everyone some time?"
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
Cons: "Flight delayed when we ere told it was early. Waited and waited."
Pros: "It is hard to beat the price of tickets for this airline. I love the price; that the flights are direct & almost always on time; that the staff, from the flight attendants to ticket agents, all seem professional, helpful & friendly; and that the planes are clean and seats well cushioned & comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that the seats don't lean back & that they are very close together with little leg/knee room. Altho the base price for the flights is cheap, they charge for "extras", including making your reservation by phone instead of online, printing out your boarding pass &choosing your seat. There's a fee for carry on's as well as regular size luggage. If you don't prepay for your luggage or if your luggage weighs more than 40 lbs, they charge $50, instead of $25. They not only charge for food, but also for water or any beverage. If you are prepared for a no frills flight & are willing to sit separately from your travel companions, etc. then this is a great way to save time (direct flights) and money. I will choose to fly with them again, even tho My husband & I prob. won't get to sit together. If you know what to expect & plan for it, it is a great way to save."
Pros: "No Delays All went smooth & arrived early!"
Pros: "The staff and crew are extremely polite and focused on good service."
Cons: "The seats on the Allegiant MD-80 don't recline AND the space between one row and the next is EXTREMELY tight. Much tighter than I have seen in an airline in a while."
Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable"
Cons: "Lands in South Terminal of Austin’s airport, meaning you have to shuttle 8 miles to get to main terminal or long term parking. Unbelievable! Very inconvenient..."
Cons: "Left/ arived 30" late"
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
Cons: "Bought flight insurance. Had to cancel within one week due to mom's health issues. Could not get a refund without her Dr.'s signature, which was impossible for me to do. Therefore....lost 145.....down the drain....."
Cons: "All of the hidden fees. I was initially charged more than $200 over the price I was quoted on Kayak.com and then had to pay an extra $45 to bring 1 carry-on each. I do not plan to use Kayak.com again for these reasons and will not recommend this site to anyone"
Pros: "Cost of tickets, airport locations-and more convenient travel utilizing smaller airports."
Cons: "Baggage fees are outrageous, no complimentary amenities or refreshments. Flight attendants were rude in asking parties to return to assigned seats, while there were several completely open rows towards the back, (no obvious or explained reason aside from "assigned ticket seats" that they should remain empty. Families or companions could have traveled together- seemed unnecessary to prevent this, only gain noticed was Flight attendants satisfaction at denying seat relocation."
Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."
Pros: "The speed"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Not enough options and what was available was pricey."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Cons: "Bad service. Long waits. No directions at airport from the airline and counter service slow"
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The fight"
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Cons: "Seats were made of stone."
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Cons: "Free high speed Wifi. More room / comfort"
Pros: "Most uncomfortable plane that I've ever been on"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "The staff at the boarding gate and the flight crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "The United gates at Logan airport were quite horrible. Poor signage, limited bathrooms, and all the dining options were quite expensive."
Cons: "Not being delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "I liked the ticket price."
Cons: "The seat was very narrow with absolutely minimal leg space, and a carry-on bag was not included in the fare."
Cons: "after boarding, we sat on at the gate for nearly 30 minutes without any explanation given. When announcements were made the person's language skills were greatly lacking - we could not understand anything that was said. there is no food, drink, or entertainment... unless you consider the man behind me playing with is cat .... and yes I'm very allergic :( landing crew didn't know where our luggage was to be returned (bottom of the gate or top of the gate). After a considerable time, we were told all luggage was delivered to the baggage concourse."
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "Not much although the small meal/snack was solid. Also they didn’t lose or kill any animals as far as know."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight attendants didn’t really care. No way to watch TV unless you pay."
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Pros: "United personnel were very helpful under really miserable circumstances. They did everything in their power to rush me to flights that were seriously delayed due to severe weather on January 4th."
Cons: "The long delays! The kicker was when we waited 2.5 hours for technicians to repair broken in-flight restrooms. Flights that were supposed to be completed in five hours were finished in 10. Noone's fault, but I did not enjoy that part."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice, and although our flight was delayed and hour and fifteen minutes and our layover was an hour and fifteen minutes, we were able to make our connection! Since our connection to Portland in Denver was the last flight of the night, they were able to hold it for us. This was wonderful because there weren’t many flights out that weren’t booked solid for the next day. The attendants on this flight were great about updating us with information for the connections and telling us when we would land in Denver."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour for cleaning. It was frustrating to say the least."
Pros: "Refund was prompt"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew from the ticket agents all the way up were great. The app for iPhone is great."
Cons: "I paid for 30 minutes of WiFi to download the United app on my iPad. I wanted to watch the movies/tv shows that were available to passengers. The WiFi was spotty and slow so I wasn’t able to load the app. Needless to say I was disappointed. I also was disappointed with the seating. I am an average size person and I felt very cramped in my seat. My shoulders and neck are killing me after a 2 hour flight. I know that I chose the economy seating but I don’t remember the seats being quite so narrow or the leg room being non existent."
Pros: "short uneventful flight"
Cons: "no services provided"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "A very tall, male, flight attendant very wonderfully took me almost all the way from one end of the horseshoe to the other. I didn't catch his name but he was SO helpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a few minutes and by the time we got to San Francisco, boarding was almost done for my connecting flight. I had to literally run from one end of the United terminals to the other... the entire horse shoe."
Pros: "Our flight was changed a total of 6 times. We spent 9 hours waiting because their wasn't a crew. When we tried to board our seats apparently we're given away to someone else. I will never be on another united flight again"
Cons: "How can you fly hundreds people across the nation in a 100 million dollar aircraft but not know who to reset the router on the wifi? Bait and switches. They should never advertise it if they can't get it to work."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Competent, organized, pleasant and efficient staff, on time"
Cons: "Got re-seated into a non-recline, bulkhead exit row. For a tall guy like me that's a death sentence on a 6h flight that's delayed extra at the end of a day"
Cons: "Took 3 days to get home got stuck in a hotel pregant stuck between airport and planes for 2 days makes me never want to fly again horrible experience"
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Pros: "I liked the comfort that the plane gave. I also enjoyed the fact that the crew was all very friendly and kind."
Cons: "There was no music or free tv to watch on flight. There were delays due to high traffic."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Cons: "Honestly, I am not a big fan of United right now and their airline policies. The flight was delayed for a hour. But at least I wasn't dragged off the plane or stuck in 95 degree weather for 5 hours."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Pros: "Very quick ride"
Cons: "The seats don't sit back that much but it wasn't bad because of the short flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight but overall it was a really good flight."
Cons: "Flights was delayed and connection was unable to be made. My younger brother is now im limbo in newark nj and is not getting much help at all. Very dissapointed in united. He may have to spend the night in the airport they said. Smh"
Pros: "they switched our flight in boston to another flight which was totally inconvenient. then the connecting flight was delayed so we had a three hour layover. then they switched the terminal and flight time to an hour earlier than posted w/o our knowledge. that flight left and we were stranded in new jersey airport until 6 am the next day and had to rebook. now we will have to make another stop in san Francisco's before getting to portland oregon a day late. total joke."
Pros: "Rebooking me on another flight was uncomplicated."
Cons: "We had a long delay in Boston that resulted in missing my connection. I only had 10 minutes from gate to gate to make my connection. I understand that the FAA levies heavy fines on planes every minute that they are late. If so, how does it explain the delay in Boston of almost an hour? Needless to say, I was NOT happy."
Cons: "The crew was rude and acted as if us being there was a nusence."
Pros: "Good crews."
Cons: "The UA439 flight from Boston to Chicago was delayed for almost 4-hours."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on the ground for 2 hrs because of a generator issue, so I missed my connection. The United app nicely pre-booked me on the next flight to my destination without my having to do anything, which was cool. Internet didn't work but they refunded my purchase."
Cons: "The legroom is so much worse than jetBlue (which I usually fly) I almost couldn't believe it. Because of the generator issue the flight ended up being almost 9 hours. They ran out of ALL FOOD for purchase except chips (which they didn't even offer for free despite everything), so those of us in the back of the aircraft had our choice of a bag of chips for $4, or no food for 9 hours. Also, I paid $20 for the internet for the entire flight but it only worked for the first hour so I couldn't do any work."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the captain and flight attendants handling the engine problems we had that sent us back to the gate for maintenance at Boston. They were calm and professional and (as a fearful flyer) I felt confident the captain was absolutely making sure we were safe to progress."
Cons: "It was so hot on the plane!!! It would have been awesome if they would have passed out water."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Cons: "I wished there was a snack."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Cons: "They mis-tagged my bag and still haven't found it and have not been helpful or informative when I call to check the status"
Pros: "It was a comfy plane ride."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 HOURS due to lazy attempts at calculating how much fuel was required with weather systems. We stopped to refuel in Minneapolis for a very long time, despite assurances it would only take ~20 minutes."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding went smoothly. I'm glad that they now offer complementary small snacks."
Cons: "I can never get the entertainment to work on my personal device and the seating is always tight in economy class."
Pros: "One crew member for the baggage crew was helpful."
Cons: "They lost my luggage which I had to put my medication on. I ended up needing to go to the emergency room to get the medication."
Pros: "The flight attendents were attentive and did a great job."
Cons: "Customer service was rude to us about our carry on. It was fine on the way to Boston, but made to pay and check it on the way back. other customers had bags our size but we we're rudely told "you need to go pay for your bag that's it". The bag fit effortlessly in the top on the way there."
Cons: "Delays, had to stay overnight in Chicago since we arrived 6 hours late"
Pros: "Safe travels. Good crew."
Cons: "Comfort is not good at all."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane. Had to pay more for my carry on bag than my flight ticket"
Pros: "Cheap overall price, no frill airline"
Cons: "Crew seems jaded, no food or drinks at all, seats are very uncomfortable, very little area at kiosk when you check in."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No complimentary water."
Pros: "Swap to Delta flight."
Cons: "Return ticket also cancelled without my knowledge. Had to argue to get return ticket restored."
Cons: "Seats were very thin, had has children kicking and screaming behind me on both flights. Both flights were late for takeoff, which was very inconvenient, and lastly I do not think your airline prices justify charging $3 for something to drink! I paid about $90 for a United direct flight to Boston, where I had free drinks, and yet I paid $150 through you guys to take two flights home as you had no direct flights back. I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. Your flights are not cheap enough either to justify charging $90 for two checked bags. Good luck, but I would rather take United."
Cons: "Boarding should still be open 36 minutes prior to boarding yet when I got there (36 minutes prior to boarding) no one was there and by the time an attendant came up she said the plane had left early because everyone was on board! Obviously not though because my baby and I had a ticket and we were not on the flight!! They stranded my baby and I. Don't leave without all your passengers when we arrive early enough that we should've made the flight."
Pros: "I liked how easy it was to book the flights and how I got to pick which ones worked best for me"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Pros: "I only liked the length of the flight once the flight was air born."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay for EVERY thing. It's ridiculous. By the time you purchase the ticket, add on the bag, pick a seat so you won't be separated from your child/family, got a snack; you're at the rate of other airlines, or maybe even more for a round trip.I would fly Spirit only if there was no other way for me to get to my destination."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, and given a flight with a two hour lay-over instead...then my luggage got soaking wet and half of my inventory for a work-related event was completely ruined. THEN my flight got changed AGAIN! In total i spent 3 hours on the phone, 2 1/2 of which was me, sitting on hold. the seats suck. i got insanely and the roof was rattling so bad I thought I was about to get sucked out of the aircraft. S U C K E D!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Repeated delays, before take off and after landing. Announcements of brief delays after landing raised expectations, and when they proved inaccurate heightened anxiety about prolonged wait. Despite no turbulence for long period after reaching cruising altitude, the seatbelt sign remained on, thus preventing use of the lavatories."
Cons: "Outbound to BOS there was over 4 hrs delay, yet we had to be at the airport in time for the original departure time. The staff for the most part were not very sym"
Cons: "The flight from Boston to Las Vegas was delayed for three hours. The flight back was cancelled.. I received a call at 10:03 pm when the flight was scheduled for 11:57pm. This was after returning my rental car. When I asked why I wasn't notified earlier the the gentleman on the phone told me there was a lot of people to call. I can't believe the lack of cancelling a booked flight. What airline does this. Spirit. Less pay. More no."
Cons: "Their pilots had been on strike for days. They kept us waiting at the airport on my return flight for three hours before telling us the flight was cancelled. They should have started rebooking us on other flights as soon as we got there. By the time they cancelled the flight all the other airlines at the airport were closed. They told us they couldn't help us and we would have to call their 800 number. I was on the phone for 3-1/2 hours on my outgoing flight and didn't have that much time for this flight. They didn't care at all about their customers. In the end it cost them more because they put us up at a hotel for the night and gave us a meal voucher."
Cons: "I accidentally booked an 9pm flight when I meant to select 9am flight at 8am after missing my jetblue flight. I needed to get to Baltimore for work. I went through security and while I was about to board the plane they turned me away due to my ticket being incorrect. The woman checking the boarding passes rudely said "there's no room on this plane so we can't switch this ticket to 9am." I went to Spirit customer service minutes after I was turned away and they told me there was in fact room on that plane. So because of an honest mistake, they 1) wouldn't refund my ticket and 2) were rude and unhelpful and refused to let me on a plane that had plenty of space but they didn't want to inconvenience themselves for 5 minutes to change my boarding pass even after I had gone through security. I will never book Spirit again, even if I'm desperate."
Pros: "I was grateful the flights never cancelled, but it delayed so often. Good news was I kept getting email notifications on all the delays."
Cons: "The airplane was not meant to be comfortable. The seats don't recline. There's no radio or TV. No Footrest. The seats had very little cushion. My first flight, it looked to be an older plane, so I assumed they bought it used. My second flight, the plane was definitely new and they styled it so it would NOT be comfortable. They even made the tray table shorter. Wasn't able to fit anything on that. If you are looking for comfort or peace of mind in getting to your destination on time, then I would NOT recommend Spirit."
Cons: "Flight delayed for "maintenance" for two hours and they told us numerous times how critical it was that the staff make it to Detroit on time so we needed to board quickly."
Pros: "Worst service Small terminals Seats so tight and crammed Flight attendants rude"
Cons: "See all above Not a bargain at all"
Pros: "Despite the impending blizzard later that day, the flight arrived on time and was smooth enough I could catch a quick nap. Definitely helped with my anxiety with flying. We chose the seats with extra legroom and they were pleasant. Boarding on and off the plane was relatively quick because the plane wasn't huge. Would definitely fly Spirit again. The price was definitely a plus too."
Cons: "Overall the additional cost of carry-ons or checked baggage was annoying but it was hard to complain since our tickets were so cheap."
Pros: "Love the prices and the cleanliness of the airplane. Every staff I have interacted with have been friendly, polite, and look as though they enjoy their job and coworkers. The Spirit terminal at the Baltimore airport is phenomenal. It is spacious, clean, bright and modern. I will definitely be flying Spirit again!"
Cons: "This is the second time that I have flown from Logan airport on Spirit. Both times I have been very disappointed and disgusted by the terminal. The terminal is crowded and unclean. There were crumbs, wrappers and bottles on the floor. The trash can near the gate was overflowing with boxes and napkins. I was in the terminal for over two hours and not once was the bathroom or terminal serviced by facilities or maintenance staff. The bathroom is dark and crowded as well. Because the stalls and space is so small it's hard to manage your bags while using the bathroom. I would highly encourage an extra shift for cleaning crew and perhaps a different layout for chairs to make it feel less crowded and to bring a modern feel and look to the terminal."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and they weren't going to refund until I yelled at them."
Cons: "The aggressive rules around carry-on sizes -- we were only .5 inch off and had to pay $50 -- the same amount as our ticket!!"
Pros: "The flight was fine, attendants were excellent. Very efficient boarding. I wasted much of the day before and day of the flight trying to print a boarding pass. Difficult to get to site and then they wouldn't accept my password and then didn't send the password I needed to change it. It was extremely frustrating. When I checked in at the kios I was warned that if my bag didn't fit in the bin I would be charged $100 at the gate. I was a1/2 inch too wide so I paid the $55 and found that people were boarding with big backpacks and not paying. My bag fit easily under the seat. Can this money be redeemed?"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats, zero leg room, a website that has yet to function properly without me having to call customer service several times per flight. Not to mention the "Low fares" Spirit offers you don't actually account for the money you shovel out for EVERY SINGLE EXTRA you can think of. I ended up spending 65$ on my last flight just to bring a carry on and choose a seat. Tie that all together with an angry, impatient, and unprofessional staff, and you result in a customer who will never be flying spirit airlines again."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding process"
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable seats. Ridiculous fees (20$ to choose seats and 55$ for a carry-on that is free on every other airline?) are the main reason I will never fly Spirit again"
Cons: "I did a check in to my luggage it was just one an hour before boarding and i paid 50$ for my bag and they lost it and when i went to thier representative she told me she cant find and when i asked her when will they get back to me she was like as soon as they find it without any specification about the time or any thing and she gave me a permission for a voucher with 25$ to use it in my next trip with them!! Again!!! Really !! If i will travel with again!!! It is a horrible airline i will never travel with them again ever."
Pros: "What I like was the flight was on time, rapid boarding, the crew was very nice. I did not expect much else for the price of the ticket that I paid for. I fly with them quite often and know what to expect."
Cons: "Seats were ok, not enough leg room and I am only 5'8" just an average height guy."
Cons: "The customer service was non-existent, lack of comfort on the plane, delays and lack of knowledge by employees."
Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "Flight delayed from seven in the morning till actually leaving at 11:30 AM! Since I had to go to a funeral in the morning in Boston I canceled the flight. The big problem was that the airline never notified me of the delay till I waited in their line for 45 minutes and only found out at the ticket counter. They didn't have any chicken machines so I had to wait in line!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to the plane being stuck in another city due to weather. I've had this happen before with other airlines, and they were able to rebook me on another airline's flight, with no price difference. With Spirit, they only were able to refund my money or move me to another date, four days later, which would have caused me to miss the event I was supposed to attend over the weekend. I thought since I was flying solo, without my kids in tow, using a cut-rate airline would have worked out. I've had no problems with JetBlue or SW in the past. But I would stay away from using Spirit."
Pros: "Check in was available at a kiosk, but waiting in line to deposit baggage at the counter, instead of a Spirit employee taking baggage from the kiosks, sort of defeats the purpose. Everything else was pretty standard for a modern airline experience."
Cons: "Additional fees should be more clearly outlined at booking. It doesn't do much good to talk about how low your fares are when baggage of any kind, carry-on or checked, will cost between $52 and $55 each way. Seat assignment for every leg of flight will also cost an extra $10 to $30 each. One is left with a sense of avoiding a larger airlines costs only to find enough small charges adding up to about the same expense for an essentially similar experience. Suddenly wondering why I bothered writing this review..."
Pros: "NOTHING POSITIVE!"
Cons: "They chose to cancel the return flight within 2 hours of the scheduled departure and were not at all helpful trying to get anyone out on any other airlines (because they're next available flight to that destination was 4 days out...) Not to mention on the initial flight to my destination, they had everyone board the plane 40 minutes early and then told everyone they had to all evacuate the plane and delayed the flight for 4 hours for NO reason!!!!! I would highly recommend avoiding flying spirit airlines at all cost, what I thought was a decent deal ended costing me an extra $400 for my last minute one-way trip and adding many many hours to my time traveling......"
Pros: "The view from the window."
Cons: "My flight got delayed 2 times, making me wait over 2 hours at the airport. I asked a staff member if there was an earlier flight to Ft. Lauderdale and she didn't give me many options. She told me one was sold out and didn't help me get into another earlier airline. The crew was bluntly rude. Nobody wanted to try to help passengers with their concerns. Never booking another Spirit flight again."
Cons: "After being told we were circling our destination due to weather, we were deferred to another airport. This was fine until we were told we'd get sent out on the next plane... Which was also told to the other plane that got deferred (spirit) . Two planes all pushing to get on one. We were then forced to leave the gate with the promise of buses awaiting us. After 4 hours waiting for buses (midnight) I had to spend my own money to rent a car and drive 4.5 hours to my original destination. No offer to be put up in a hotel was offered, nor was an offer to catch another flight. Instead we were told to pay and extra $100 to be placed on standby for the following nights flight to our final destination."
Pros: "I took the flight from Boston to Dallas. Because of the extreme weather in Dallas, the plane was not allowed to land in Dallas,which occurred to all the other airlines. However, spirit is the worst to deal with the issue. They flied is us to Houston at around 6:00pm and kept us waiting in the gate for the reopen airport although they already knew the flight got cancelled. There was not clear announcement about their plans. Finally, I got information from other passengers, they provided two options: either refund or take their compliment bus to Dallas. l decided to take the bus. Again, no announcement of where and when the bus would arrive. After 3hr, two buses arrived, but not enough seats for all the passengers. I did not get in and waited for the next round of buses. Until midnight, the buses still had not arrived. I gave up and stayed the hotel near the airport instead. However, AA airlines already sent four buses to take care of their passengers efficiently before 11:00pm"
Pros: "The person who helped us with our refund was very helpful."
Cons: "We arrived to the airport to check our bags and were informed that our flight had been delayed an hour for maintenance. No huge issue with us we decided to eat breakfast and then hang out for a bit before the flight boarded. We arrived at the gate to find out the plane was delayed another 8 hours. I understand issues happen all the time that are out of our hands. The gentleman at the gate was extremely helpful and accommodating, but he still gave it a 50/50 shot of the plane being cancelled or not. We opted to receive a refund and drive to Baltimore. I completely understand that this was a safety issue with the plane. I'm not upset that the flight was delayed. But having to wait 9 hours for a plane that may or may not be able to make it or be cancelled was tough."
Pros: "Not only does spirit consistently (in my experience) leave on time, but if all passengers are on-board, they might leave early."
Pros: "I liked the safety instructions given by flight attendant he was creative and funny making the whole plane laugh."
Cons: "What did to like? Pretty much everything. Starting with the fact they charge for a carry on. I paid $150 for round trip from Boston to Atlantic city. My carry on cost $42 each way!!! That means I paid $240 total for my flight. That wasn't comfortable, no food or drink offered, ride staff at check in desk, and very Uncomforrabel. I could flown jet blue for that with out any extra costs and a much better experience!!!! Never again will I fly spirit. I understand you get what you paid for. But it was so terrible it seemed that they know they suck but make jokes about it. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing unfortunately"
Cons: "Terrible customer service- there was no one at the desk to check in at Boston Logan. I was in a line of about 5 people, and after 20 minutes a group of employees finally shuffled out and one of them was still eating food out of a cup while "getting ready to open", as he told us. He was inconsiderate and rude when telling me he wouldn't check my bag early, and also informed me with a smirk that my flight was delayed 3 hours as well. No explanation. The rest of the customer service I experienced from the gate attendants and flight attendants was apathy at best- a far cry from the service I've received with many other airlines. My flight home was delayed an additional hour, and upon boarding we found out this was due to "our plane" being used for a different flight. I guess I didn't think that a smaller airline would have so many issues, but I was disappointed almost every step of the way. The website had multiple issues while I tried to navigate the process of adding a suitcase & choosing a seat, and I wasn't able to get my boarding pass printed at home and had to sign back in twice because there were website errors. We landed a half hour early on the way to Boston, but had to sit on the tarmac for exactly a half hour because there are only two Spirit gates. Once landed, we also waited a half hour for our bags at the carousel. Maybe one of these things would go wrong with another airline, but I've never had so many in one trip. I had heard some negative reviews about the airline, and thought I'd give it a shot, but never again. I'd rather pay more money up front and fly with Delta than be miserable the entire time I'm en route somewhere."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get off the plane"
Cons: "Being delayed 2+ hours, sitting on the tarmac for an hour, having to pay for water, the crew coming by once and never coming to pick up trash, no apologies made by anyone about the delay."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Spirit airlines has a lot of hidden costs. You think you're getting an inexpensive flight and then you get charged for EVERYTHING."
Pros: "I liked that we had a female pilot on this particular flight."
Cons: "I had to pay to get a seat on the plane after I had bought the ticket. Seat prices ranged from $4-$20+, in addition to the plane ticket. There is not a carry on bag included in any of this so you have to pay an additional $45-$55 for a carry on and even more if you want to check a bag. There is no in flight entertainment (I like to read so this I didn't mind too much) or complimentary beverage service. Also, the seats don't recline at all. It ends up being a very uncomfortable flight for the same price you would pay for a better airline that builds that into the price instead of surprising you with fees after the fact. Will likely never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Well was great. I enjoyed flying with Spirit. Their flights very nice and heavy. When you are up there you feel good. No fear. A friend told me he does not like Spirit, but when I try it from Dallas TX to Boston Logan it was unique trust me. Give a try and witness what I am saying. Pretty much great."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I did NOT like the extra charges for things I would not be asked to pay for on other flights. For that reason, I will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "On time flights, OK seating, friendly cabin attendants."
Cons: "Checking baggage was a long process. Cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "No TSA pre-check, $55 fee for a carry on, crowded seating - felt like I was taking a bus. Would rather pay full price for another airline"
Pros: "The counter spirit worker Ozzie in Logan Airport went above and beyond to make sure I made my flight! Mr Ferraro who works for the TSA in Logan airport also went above and beyond, Mr Ferraro knew I was in a hurry, he thought I might forget my wallet, and when I took off running to catch my flight Mr Ferraro yelled Sir don't forget your wallet Awesome all the way around! 2 guys made my day and week! It was my brothers 20th wedding anniversary, and these 2 guys Ozzie and Mr. Ferraro truly provided heartfelt customer service that I will never forget! Thanks for being awesome!"
Cons: "Keep hiring great people! All is great!"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "pseudo cheap fare up front without indication about paying for a carry on bag which raised my price equal to that of other airlines which i may have chosen instead. also, very angry that it cost more for everything at the printing boarding pass stage, especially the fact that a carry on would cost more than a checked bag at that stage in the process. not cool!"
Pros: "Takeoff to landing efficiently managed despite delayed takeoff landed ontime"
Cons: "It took around 45 minutes to see the BOS luggage come out on carousel"
