Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No screens at all for a 5 hour flight. No charging outlets. Terrible flight comfort."

Cons: "Pilot to passenger communication. On time departure. Cleanliness and comfort of plane. Bigger plane to accommodate roll aboards. Flight attendant’s attitude. Ticket price, but there’s no competition on the route."
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Cons: "Communication among crew members was terrible. We had to ride a crowded shuttle over to the plane only to be told we could not get off because the crew was running late. The crew shows up and begins their pre-flight preparations, but we then could not get off the shuttle because of broken air system"
Pros: "Pilot and crew were great even though we had lots of delays due to weather"
Cons: "Gate agents were a little rude to some customers"
Pros: "The crew was pretty nice. The seats were actually comfortable."
Cons: "I don't know; it's economy in a plane. It is what it is."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and unclear why."
Pros: "Flight attendant was a little rude"
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."
Cons: "Having to us use our cell phones to watch a few channels was terrible. No movie. No help. You were just left on your own. Total of waste of time. Give us a monitor. Give us options. You are American Airlines, not Allegiant Air"
Cons: "They left me! I know I was a “runner” but they knew I was just already going through security and it’s only a 3 terminal airport! They even asked if there were any runners!"
Pros: "Much better flight. Nice quick easy boarding and getting off. quick easy overall. Seats were much more comfortable"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Negative leg room. If the seat next to me had not been vacant, my legs would have lost circulation."
Cons: "No amenities at airport"
Pros: "The TVs and free movies!"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Ceiling light. Pilot’s skills!"
Pros: "Lunch was GREAT- usually fly Delta but this was comparable."
Cons: "WiFi, ESPECIALLY when you pay for a first class ticket, should be free. Further, the instructions for connecting to paid WiFi are NOT printed clearly anywhere. I had to go to the internet while on the ground. There are many movie and TV show options for free on your own device, however."
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours."
Cons: "TSA Safety Point officer was not on point..She Made me go through the checkpoint again just because I passed a zone where she was sitting at and not standing there to warn or stop people from passing through. This happen at the End and D gate terminals by Starbucks. I was very inconvenienced."
Pros: "Same as above. Very pleased"
Cons: "Pilot was going so fast never told us why we kept descending and going back up and people were throwing up and they wouldn’t give soda to settle stomachs"
Cons: "The cabin heat was way too high, I actually was sweating. Boarding took 35 minutes"
Cons: "No charging outlets on seat ( this something pretty standard on most planes now). The flight was delayed because of the plane had a problem with the tire. The passenger next to me had a broken tray with tape around it. The bathroom had a broken sink."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Great selection for entertainment. Flight arrived to my destination early."
Pros: "It makes such a difference when the attendant is happy and clearly enjoying her work and trying to make a difference. A fantastic boost after a long flight"
Pros: "It was a red eye and I made it back safely, and a couple of minutes before schedule. There was no food or snacks, barely had enough water to pass out. Otherwise it was an ok flight."
Cons: "No snacks or food, barely enough water on the flight."
Pros: "Plane was nice, seemed fairly new. There were two outlets for my row installed on the supports of the row of seats in front of us. Looked like it was made for plugs from a number of countries. Pretty nice feature. Headrests has an adjustable pillow that you could use to cradle your head for sleep. Didn’t use but seemed interesting."
Cons: "Seats too narrow. There weren’t especially narrow. In fact, I’m sure I’ve sat in narrower ones. This is just a feature of every economy seat I suppose, but it’s still a negative. O"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Seat space is bad. Food is all for a fee."
Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"
Cons: "Ground crew was inadequate and unorganized. Ground crew caused a late flight to be even later. Plane was overbooked and the ground crew was more interested in filling the flight than accommodating Advantage Member seating."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight"
Cons: "Seats are built for very small people. My knees were pressed into some hard surfaces for the entire 3+ hour flight. Made it a little painful to walk when we landed. The movie screens (not headrest systems) were all up overhead so you get a neck cramp watching anything. The headrest behind me pressed my shoulders forward and the extendable part would not stay up. The window stopped at about my shoulder so to look out I had to crouch down. AA better stop squeezing us for profits and start delivering a quality service or we'll all find some other airline that puts passengers first."
Pros: "mango juice and soft blankets"
Cons: "too much time between meals"
Pros: "Staff polite and helpful. No complaints/ Slept all the way"
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable. You"
Cons: "The middle seat and the guy in front of me who decided to recline!!!"
Pros: "Bottom tier entertainment provided"
Cons: "Advertised wifi not functional. Limited TV access (1 8" tv for every 12-16 seats) poor programming random NBC clips and partial episodes) and terrible movie. No selection/plane tracker"
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Pros: "I enjoyed that the ride was only 35 minutes. The crew was helpful and professional. Quick and smooth trip and came in on time. Can't really ask for too much more than that."
Cons: "The middle seat was a little cramped but I can't really complain since I lucked out with window seats the entire trip and only had to sit in the middle seat for the shortest plane ride on my trip."
Cons: "It was an hour + late. A trip I took from Washington two weeks before was late in both directions."
Cons: "Gate personnel was not as accommodating. Didn't seem like they wanted to help."
Pros: "The plane was new and the leg room was worth the extra $20."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and the seat did not recline. I guess there are pros and cons in the exit row. I also had no choice but to buy the more expensive seat since all others were taken at check-in."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, efficient, and professional. Plane was clean and the seats seemed roomier too. Pilot was excellent. He made up considerable time once we were in the air."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, on time leaving, early arrival, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Didn't use entertainment."
Pros: "Like I said before nice early boarding."
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice, and the seats themselves were basically comfortable. The option to check baggage at the gate was good, since it was a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The seating was completely cramped. Airlines need to decrease rows in order to provide actual legroom. The boarding process didn't seem very logical in terms of rows and seats. I don't believe there was any food, but that may be because it was a red-eye. The pilot thought Springfield was in CT, which was alarming to me."
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast"
Cons: "The flight was late getting out of Charleston and we had a very long walk in Chicago. By the time we got to the gate mos people had already boarded. It could have been much worse if we had not nearly ran to the gate. Other than that all was good."
Pros: "We were on time and the flights were excellent. Liked the way the pilot and the crew interacted. Appreciated the humor when the groundcrew was late parking us."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold. Audio beeps (fasten seat belts) are too loud"
Cons: "The crew was very rude, I was told I had to store my purse, the person next to me wouldn't store the carry on baggage, I needed to take scheduled medicine in flight, I couldn't as my purse was stowed. I was delayed for over and hour and a half after arriving. I had to stop and eat in the airport. With chronic health issues addressed this way I will probably not use United again."
Pros: "Flight is a quick and easy one."
Cons: "It truly bothers me that during pre-board, United says, "if you have a disability you can board now." Who would want to be the person moving forward to board? Southwest says something to the affect of "if you have a pre-board and need a little extra time." Maybe they could change their verbiage to sound a bit more like we're in the 21st century."
Cons: "Been a long time since we had to walk down onto the tarmac to board a plane. Would rather not have to do that. Otherwise a good experience."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Orderly boarding seat nice crew good"
Cons: "Snacks in first class were lame"
Pros: "Nice plane, looks clean and new"
Cons: "Seats were surprisingly uncomfortable for some reason. They were new, but I think they're just new and not "broken in"?"
Pros: "The crew was all very polite, attentive and helpful. They were troupers amid a flight gone bad."
Cons: "My wife and I booked a round trip to California from Connecticut. We had a layover in Dulles with plenty of time to change gates. We arrived at our gate and established our place in the waiting area. We were then required to change gates; this was not horribly stressful as the gate was near by: However, on the return flight things changed. Keep in mind that my wife has arthritic hips and knees and I have arthritic knees. Arriving at Dulles, we went to our waiting area at Gate C-19 and ordered a breakfast at a nearby kiosk. Before our order was ready an announcement stated that our gate was changing to D-24. We waited for our order but had to leave the coffees behind because the lids did not fit correctly and we didn't want to spill them on ourselves while hurrying to the new gate (about a mile away). We finally got to that gate and boarded the plane. We wanted to wait to eat our food until we were airborne. We waited on the plane for about 45 minutes in the heat. During that time the "gate attendant" announced that they were waiting for that pilot who could not be found but was in the airport. At the same time my United App on my iPhone messaged me that there was a mechanical issue with the plane and we were waiting for another plane. At the 45 minute mark we were told the plane had a mechanical issue and we would have to disembark and go to Gate D-1 (about 1/2 mile away). My wife and I were already exhausted and needed to stop, but we did not know how long we had before boarding the new plane so we pushed onward. We then were told the plane would be a couple hours and that there was snack and water at no charge. My wife and I proceeded to dissect our breakfast sandwiches to eat what ever was still less than discussing. The new plane arrived and all else went well. We were delayed over 3 hours but made it to Connecticut; exhausted and sore. We had been awake for over 29 hours by the time we hit Hartford, CT. This experience will linger in our minds for a long time and travel by United my not be possible for us. We are very traumatized."
Pros: "Quick short flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. This shouldn't have to be a "positive" aspect of the trip but unfortunately was the only flight during my trip that was on time."
Cons: "i will not arrive at my destination until 4:03 AM. yuck."
Pros: "Great flight attendant made short safety demonstration very entertaining."
Cons: "Good? What food?"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Has crumbs of food all over the floor and I had to sweep off my seat before I sat down. There was trash beside my seat The attendants were loud and not professional with how they talked like they were from the hood. They kept the lights on making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, but touchdown was kind of brutal"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Cons: "Took a long time to get support when gate changed. Could not walk at the time due to skiing accident."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight which I missed because of a giant delay on the first leg of my journey"
Pros: "On time flight. Great service from United crew."
Pros: "crew ok"
Cons: "two delays caused anguish no info on connecting flight on board plane couldn't access entertainment without additional software arrived ewr late would almost ;miss boarding after running from gate 82 to 114 to find the flight was late," waiting for a plane." could not get accurate departure info. (people were waiting to pick us up) arrived at bdl just before midnight two bad flights not good at all"
Pros: "New plane. I like the new seats with the slot that can hold my iPad cover so I could watch a movie. The services was great."
Pros: "Quick flight time."
Cons: "The crew seemed so much less friendly on this flight, however they got the job done. I was scolded for having a carry on with me, although I did notice there was still a portion of overhead space that was unused. Also, no in-flight wifi service like the last flight was available it seemed. That was a bummer"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour due to maintenance issue which could have been avoided."
Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "They didn't even provide nuts!! No snacks at all after the long trip. There was a one hr delay at departure from NEWARK. And the seats were VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!"
Cons: "Small plane, no TV for a long plane ride"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and couldn't sleep"
Pros: "Free entertainment on your own devices"
Cons: "We left late, so even though I had rushed to catch my connection, we still sat in the plane for half an hour. Is it possible to build in more time between connecting flights? Which luckily was also late. Too bad people now have to pay for food."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was helpful and nice."
Cons: "Crew boarding the plane was bossy and a bit rude. I also think it's very inappropriate that United boards it's pre board group by saying, "anyone with disabilities can board now" The term pre board was created so you wouldn't have to publicly announce that someone was disabled."
Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"
Pros: "Delays in both flights"

Cons: "Flight delay"

Cons: "Dulles International Airport on a beautiful June 3, 2016. Flight was from Dulles to Hartford and due to depart at 12:30 pm. 12:30 pm - Notified flight delayed an hour or so because they didn't have a flight attendant for the flight. 2:00 pm - Notified flight delayed because Flight Attendant was found but on way. 4:00 pm - Notified the Flight attendant would not be able to make it, but they were looking for another one. 6:00 pm - Notified a Flight Attendant was found and was on a plane that was inbound and would be landing any minute. Notified plane with Flight Attendant arrived at gate and they would be there any minute and we could begin boarding. 6:45 pm - Flight was CANCELLED!!!!! I could go on about how I was rebooked on an 11:00 pm flight on American Airlines out of Reagan, my checked bag was not returned to me and I was told it was on another plane United plane that would beat me to Hartford, they shuttled me to Reagan. I got to Hartford and my bag was not there......SURPRISE!! This was ridiculous and thank god I was traveling alone and had time.

Cons: "I didn't like that both my flight were delayed. One was"
Pros: "The flight crew were nice"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. We were not able to choose a snack, I had no knowledge what was inside the snack package, did not like. Unfortunately, our flight was delay a few times due to storm at Houston, we experience lots of turbulence while flying, no fault of the pilot. I think you should install TV's to help passengers relief some flying stress."
Pros: "Ive had a hip injury so walking is problematic. I was worried about my 45 minute transfer time in Ohare. The boarding attendant at Charleston ordered a wheelchair to meet me. I got to my plane as it boarded. A distance I couldn't have walked, much less in the time allotted."
Cons: "Not enough time between the two flights for the distance between the two terminals."
Pros: "Blanket for lap"
Cons: "No service /selections. Paid for movie and fat child continually shut off TV w his fat arm on my armrest Boarding is very poor no assists as flight attendants virtually unattentive LAX dirty disgusting and no shops seating or restaurants No mvmt to allow stiff swollen legs all cramped in tiny seats. I pay bag fees while others get free checked bags at the gates. Many people are able to carry huge extra backpacks w no enforcement from staff Slows the whole trip down"

Cons: "I've watch video's about the company and it was nothing like what I watched . Our flight was great the staff was great and i will be flying with you guys in August !!!"

Pros: "Very nice flight attendants"

Cons: "water should be free"
Cons: "Had to go to gate to get seat assignment. Wait on line for long time . It took 3 computer terminals and 4 attendants to get seats because they said no one terminal could handle simple assignment. Hour delay as they sold final seats Paid for TSA fast lane There was none"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Price was great! Plane arrived early. Check in went smoothly and great customer service. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "I like how they were super on time with everything and how they didn’t give a lot of fuss about the bare item(free personal item) which was one of the things, they used to be very annoying about. Overall is a good airline! They have different jets though, and I wish they had the roomier ones ALL the time."

Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and early arriving in Hartford. Flight attendant was funny. Seats were comfortable. Captain was very informative and professional."

Pros: "Ease of check in and security clearance was quick. the trip to Tampa and return trip tp Hartford was great. the price was very reasonable and would travel again with Spirit airlines."
Cons: "price for one bag under 40 pounds could have been more reasonable. $50 is too much to pay .There was a time when your bag would ship free!!!!!"

Pros: "The staff was awesome. Not simply good attitudes, but fun and personable—real human beings who got to know you. The head stewardess made the flight!"
Pros: "Flight itself was quick and well done...."
Cons: "App is terrible... they tell you it's cheaper to pay for carry on and check in bag ahead of time but the app would not allow you to do so. At the airport they charge you $10 new for each I think it's a scam...."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I like Spirit Air and I scored everything that is applicable to my trip 5 stars. This survey needs an N/A in addition to you star rating."
Cons: "This survey needs to be designed better so that if something does not apply to your trip you don’t give it a rating. A choice of N/A is needed. Spirit Air was great your survey needs work."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Very little leg room."
Pros: "I was very worried about the luggage size, but it was not a problem. There was no drama at anytime about the luggage. Flights were on time, attendants were great, the seat size seemed about the same as other airlines. I definitely would fly again."

Pros: "Price, clean, friendly. I will be back !"
Cons: "Im alive!!!"
Pros: "The base price of the fare was quite good. The flight was on-time."
Cons: "They quote one price for checked baggage if you pay when the ticket is purchased, another if you pay before check-in, and a third price if you purchase at check-in. When I purchased my tickets through KAYAK, I was not offered an option to pay for a bag. When I paid for the bag a full day before I checked in, I was charged the full price with no other options available - in other words, THEY LIED. I emailed a question to their customer service address; it went unacknowledged and unanswered. The flight itself went OK, but the seats don't recline at all, there is very little knee or elbow room, and the padding is the worst I have experienced. If you are larger than average or have knee or back problems, expect to be in torment. They charge for EVERYTHING, even plain water. After paying full price for my checked bags, the savings for the flight over other carriers was simply not worth the discomfort."
Pros: "This airline is no frills basic but the flight attendants are professionals"
Cons: "The seats suck very little padding and on a 3 hour non stop I was feeling it right where it counts"
Pros: "Fast boarding and upgrade to the front seats"
Cons: "One of stewardess had poor customer service skills as she yelled at me to get off the phone instead of kindly saying that phones should be put away now. We were still at the gate ."
