No complaints!!! Great trip!
I gate checked my carry on bag. Upon deboarding the luggage was on the top shelf of a cart since we didn't have a jet way. I asked the man standing by the cart if he could help me get it off. He told me that i could get it off myself. I'm 72 yrs old. A little help would of been appreciated.

Pros: "Loved the pilot telling us a little about the flight crew and their piloting experience(Air Force) , and how he kept us abreast of flight status/timing , as well as our location at various points along the route. The crew was very very nice!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The plane was not full, so the stewardess put my wife and I by the exit seats. I am a tall guy and really appreciated it!"
Cons: "Both connecting flights were very tight time wise, and the gates were at opposite ends of the terminal. Couldn’t delta flights be closer together?"
Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Cons: "Unacceptable delays"
Pros: "The flight was only half full so boarding was very quick."
Cons: "The seats were hard and there was no entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"
Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"
Cons: "Not much to say"
Pros: "In flight movie in back of head rest. The kids thought I was the bomb when I booked this flight."
Cons: "The bathroom was smaller than my seat!"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Pros: "every person who was not a delta employee, those people were kind and helpful."
Cons: "The gate agent was the opposite of professional. You might as well get a cardboard cutout. The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Did not appreciate Aeromexico/Delta changing my flight times after I booked, giving me a more than 7 hour layover."
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Cons: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were super."
Cons: "Delta is just another cattle car"
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Cons: "I had to buy a ticket on Southwest to get where I needed to go. So a wasted trip, wasted time and Southwest came through immediately after I had told them the situation. I'll be using them much more now."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "Left on time....arrived on time. Boarding was as good as it ever gets. Anytime you can get your carry on in the overhead bin it is a great flight."
Cons: "It wasn't easy to find what gate I had to go to. I didn't see any boards in the check in area. It was only after TSA check that I found a staff member who gave me the information. After that all went okay. The problem might have been my own....it is a big airport."
Pros: "This time the tea was nice and hot!"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Cons: "Everything!! I wanna be compensated for this nonsense I went through!!"
The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual
Pros: "Crew were very nice."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "No air traffic"
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and unclear why."
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."
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Ceiling light. Pilot’s skills!"
Pros: "Routine flight. No problems noted."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
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"
Pros: "The complementary beverage was a welcomed surprise!"
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"
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Really nice, and did a wonderful job with the cart service."
Cons: "We ended up being deleyed about 30 minutes, in damp weather. It's not like it was snowing. Not sure why it took so long. B/c of baggage charges now everyone brings a carry on. This seems to slow the process of boarding as know passengers are asked multiple times to check baggage (for free, which is the one nice thing) before boarding b/c the overheads will be too full. Group 6 which I was in seemed like it was just the rest of the plane. Super busy, took me forever to get to my seat all the way in the back. Why don't airlines reverse board? People sitting in the back should board first. I feel like this would save so much time."
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: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
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: "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: "The tsa in chicago was very unorganized. The tsa workers were extremely rude."
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Cons: "Will never fly American again"
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: "mango juice and soft blankets"
Cons: "too much time between meals"
Pros: "Staff polite and helpful. No complaints/ Slept all the way"
Pros: "Movies and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crazy uncontrolled child in row across from us."
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!"
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Cons: "It was an hour + late. A trip I took from Washington two weeks before was late in both directions."
Pros: "Taking off and landing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Seating was cramped."
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."
Cons: "Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet"
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."
Pros: "The plane actually left without a cancellation"
Cons: "Every flight on this trip was delayed"
Pros: "I really loved the process of boarding the flight. The flight attendants were very nice to all of the passengers including myself. The flight was really smooth where we left the airport on time and got to our destination early. The complimentary snacks were great as well."
Pros: "Like I said before nice early boarding."
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "The crew was great. Trent was outstanding"
Pros: "The pilot tried to make up lost time in the air."
Cons: "Due to regulations, our crew had to delay our flight 39 min. This was done the night before. There was no way we were going to make our connecting flight, but no one from United seemed to care. The crew from milwaukee to Houston was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "Kind crew."
Cons: "Did not allow me to have carry on. Had to pay for it to be checked. Unexpected cost."
Pros: "Great inflight service! On the ground faster than expected."
Cons: "I asked to complementary check my small carry on, but the attendants at the desk would not let me. The stewardesses were booked too closely to their last flight and we were delayed - huge oversight. Boarding was chaotic as the gate immediately across from us was simultaneously boarding and the United staff made the whole process long and miserable by failing to call the next boarding group in a timely fashion. This is not the first time I’ve felt miserable while trying to board a United flight :/."
Cons: "Kayak sent me a message that our connecting flight out of O'Hare was boarding at gate B5. However, checking the monitors in the terminal showed the correct gate was B21, which is on the opposite end of the terminal. I don't know why Kayak had the wrong information on this. We barely made our connecting flight because our starting flight was over 30 minutes late, which was United's fault. This made rushing to the correct gate for our connecting flight all the more stressful. No time to stop at the bathrooms or pick up something to eat. Both United and Kayak let me down on getting back to Hartford. We arrived at the end of boarding with no room left for our bags in the overheads so we had to check them and pick them up at the carousel. A totally BAD flight experience."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic except I was a little squished; but I suppose that is to be expected on the economy flight. We did land later than expected but it ended up being just fine and I was able to connect to my next flight."
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."
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: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Not a lot of foot room"
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: "Nothing - missed flight because of bad info from Kayal"
Cons: "Loss of day's vacation - hotel bill, rental car cost and missed concert - all in about $400 lost."
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: "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."
Pros: "Everyone was so very helpful."
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience all around. Didn't get home till midnight"
Cons: "Kayak sent me a push notification saying flight was delayed. Arrived at airport, it was scheduled for on time. Airline wouldn't let me or my bag on the flight meaning I had to wait in the airport for 4 hours until the next flight out."
Pros: "I really liked the price for the exact time I wanted to travel!"
Cons: "A bit cramped."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived early."
Cons: "It was cancelled no email no text no call thanks"
Pros: "Although there were no personal screens, I appreciate the fact that entertainment was available on the app."
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."
Cons: "United would not put my bags on despite being at the counter 40 minutes before the flight. Then they put me on stand by for 6 hours during which time they lost my bags and ultimately not having a seat for me."
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"
Cons: "Plane 2.5 hours late"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "3 hour delay taking off"
Pros: "Quick and efficient"
Cons: "Very small and hard to sleep if you are a tall human. Ended up with neck ache"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Emergency landing with no power in flightn"
Cons: "Had to wait to takeoff for approx 15 minutes due to maintenance preparing paperwork"
Pros: "easy transfer"
Cons: "had to transfer"
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. I felt bad for the families with small children who had to suffer through this stupidity."
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: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "The Flight attendant and pilot were beyond helpful and apologetic about the delay, The customer service rep in Denver was great."
Cons: "Because of a 2+ hour delay in Milwaukee we missed our connecting flight in Denver to Medford and had to stay overnight. Sitting in isle 1 was uncomfortable and it was a pain not having immediate access to my purse because I had to stow it for take off and landing."
Cons: "United's customer service (in the airport) is terrible."
Pros: "The timing of the flight for Tuesday night was right I don't have that much delays !!!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and in time."
Cons: "Staff at General Mitchell airport (MKE) United counter were not knowledgeable and the check in process was very frustrating. There were not many people at the check in counter, but it took us 30 minutes to check in once we were at the counter working with the check in clerk."
Cons: "Never took second flight it was canceled. I was very upset"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight into Hartford. I got stuck in Houston then they sent me to Boston. My car was at Bradley international on Boston so I had to wait a few hours when I landed at Logan before a rental car became available, which cost me an extra 200 dollars. I rented the car and drove to Hartford (2 hours) to drop the rental off and get my car. Needless to say I was exhausted for work on Tuesday after getting home at 3am and traveling all day. My original flight from Houston to Hartford was suppose to land at 8pm at Bradley airport. I had several people I was on the trip with who also flew into Hartford the same day with similar arrival times at bradley who were on different airlines. They either had small delays or no delays at all. Extremely inconvenient the trip home was. Although I am all for safety first I am not sure why other airlines still made the trip or simply delayed the flights. Doesn't make much sense since I usually fly United and always consider them the benchmark of air travel. Thanks. Torry Gajda"
Pros: "The schedule was on time. Everyone was very helpful i and friendly. Good flight. Luggage was handled with care. Over all I enjoyed the flight."
Pros: "It was our first time flying and everyone made it a great experience. They helped with all our questions and explained things and made it a nice experience for first time flyers"
Pros: "Please address the lax enforcement of one carry-on and one under-the-seat bag/passenger."
Cons: "Overhead compartments were full by the time I boarded so my bag was taken and tagged, as was several other passengers. I noticed upon arrival in Hartford that several passengers had 2 bags in the overhead compartment and their coats as well. If you have a policy of one carry-on and one under-the-seat/passenger, why isn't this enforced? It is not fair to the Group 4 and 5 passengers that there is no room in the overhead compartments and they are forced to relinquish their bags. Furthermore, this results in them having to go to the baggage claim area and wait for their carry-on. This added a half hour to my time and my ride had to circle the airport waiting for me to come out."
EVIL SPIRIT It was only a 3hr flight so we didn't care about the comfort or ameneties to save a few bucks. Got boarding passes 24 hrs in advance, then departure time changed no less than 6 times before we took off. Spirit "customer service?" didn't even know. Transport from our hotel got re-arranged several times and we ended up sitting in the airport for extra hours (with little ones). Minimal staff on baggage check created long lines. Rude boarding clerk said "next time, print your boarding passes" (tough from a hotel room). Very Rude flight attendant (a feeble old man named Pasqual) threatened during boarding to throw off anyone who didn't wear their mask properly "you'll have to find another way to Hartford, but it won't be on Spirit". And "don't try to eat a bag of chips for 6 hrs. That won't work here" That was a general announcement, not directed at anyone in partiucular. Several other snide remarks. It's fair that a discount airline cut some corners on the extras, but it doesn't cost anything for courteous staff. Our Frontier flight to Orlando was excellent but we picked Spirit for the retun trip for a better departure time, which didn't work out anyway. Next time it's Frontier round trip!
Cons: "Seats a bit stiff, but overall not a big deal."
Pros: "Fast boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, entertainment is non existent."
Pros: "On time. Funny crew."
Pros: "It's cheap!"
Cons: "The amount of space on the plane is incredibly restricted. The seats are actually thinner to accommodate more passengers. We flew on Spirit because it was the only direct flight available to us. Also, it is difficult to gauge the actual price since they charge for EVERYTHING."
Pros: "Your seats are horrible"
Cons: "Very hard . Don't reclin. Flight delay. Change d gates ."
Cons: "I had a medical issue over one month prior and received ZERO help from Spirit. I will avoid your airline at all costs."
Pros: "Smooth check in."
Cons: "Crew wasn't 1/4 as friendly as the flight from Hartford to Orlando."
Pros: "Announcements not clear in airport. Attendants on board rushed, not interested. Giving info and answering questions as if from only a rehearsed script. Seats extremely uncomfortable. The back of the seat.as well as no room at all to sit! The other passengers are right on top of you touching at all times. Not pleasant. Aisles very tiny. If ever a major problem with the aircraft, it would be very hard to exit the plane quickly and safely. Very nervous about this airline. Pilot seems capable and flight was smooth, so I guess that’s a plus. The first time I flew spirit, they didn’t give us the baggage carousel and the attendant in airport didn’t know. Tried another and was given a wrong carosel. The psssaengers found it on their own and called out to others. I always fly BDL to MCO and back. I travel alone or with children. Not much choices on the flights times etc."
Pros: "It wa great"
Cons: "No complaints. If you want just a ride for really cheap it is safe and enjoyable."
Cons: "I was told I missed my flight to and they canceled my flight home WITHOUT contacting any of the 4 people in my party. Then said there is nothing I can do about it you need a new ticket home."
Cons: "I will never fly with spirit again and will make sure to tell people about them and there ridiculous fees. We had a delay and was not announced we had to ask, when boarding they didn’t call by zone they just let everybody in at the same time.. VERY DISAPPOINTED"
Cons: "Like nothing from the 6 hr delay, no compensation like other airlines, didn’t allow me or offer to re schedule the flight knowing I was flying with 2 minors. Got us on the plane, then made us wait another hour or more before taking off. The desk informed us not to worry about, we were going to get some compensation, asked to call directly to Spirit. Called Spirit and they told me they don’t give my compensation. First time traveling with Spirit, and didn’t like it. I rather pay more and be conformatble and not have to worry about paying for seats in order to seat with my kids and husband. Pay for the extra bags etc ..."
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: "The PILOT was one of the best...wish I knew his name. Take off and landing was so smooth"
Cons: "Flight attendant was nasty...should have gotten her name"
Cons: "No food, that is ok. But not even a cup of water is provided for free -- that is sad!"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth"
Cons: "If you are over 5’10” don’t ever fly Spirit as the seats are exceptionally small. Surrounded by screeching babies the entire way kicking my seat the entire flight. Absolutely miserable"
Pros: "stewardess was pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was 4 hour delayed luggage cost very expensive it makes them no cheaper and probably more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "All staff very helpful"
Cons: "The $50 luggage fee is ridiculous. Might keep me from flying spirit"
Pros: "Price was great! Plane arrived early. Check in went smoothly and great customer service. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable but I was prepared for that and it was ok for a 3 hr flight. I would not fly Spirit for a longer flight b/c of the seats."
Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "my carry on single bag was charge $55 because it was overstuffed by an inch. Rip off"
Cons: "Their r too pricy charge u too much for luggage the seat too they should have everything included one time payment"
Pros: "The crew was good, attentive."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the landing with a touch bumpy."
Pros: "- The allowed personal item is large enough for a short trip (if you want to avoid paying for a carry-on or a suitcase.) - Once everybody was on board, the person that spoke to us on speaker put us at ease with a relaxed and humorous tone. - Checking in with the app worked fine and was easy. - The flights were on time."
Cons: "Waited in line for 90 minutes to get boarding passes"
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and early arriving in Hartford. Flight attendant was funny. Seats were comfortable. Captain was very informative and professional."
Cons: "Baggage fees are way too expensive. We ended up paying double for the flights than what we first booked them at with all the extra charges. Would not suggest Spirit to families but would to singles or business people who don't need ANY extras..."
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!!!!!"
Cons: "Your service"
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: "Easy boarding, printing boarding passes,nice flight attendants, early arrival times, clean"
Cons: "The chairs don’t recline and very little leg room. Couldn’t go on a flight over 3 hours on spirit"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cost of bags and seats didn't recline."
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: "The fact I will never book with them again."
Cons: "I got hit with ridiculous fees to cancel this flight."
Pros: "On time boarding and departure. Nice job by pilot."
Cons: "Loud. Talkative flight attendant and people she was speaking with."
Pros: "I loved the comfortable seats, the leg room, the crew was great, the flight was on time and arrived early!!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the price on the checked bag, I think the price could be cheaper!!"
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: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Fees associated with everything, minimal leg room"
Pros: "love the flight"
Cons: "no complaints from me this time"
Pros: "Trip was great boarding and crew staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Out of almost all alcohol and snack choices...really?"
Pros: "Nice and surprisingly comfortable. It was my first time flying with Spirit and I wad a little apprehensive but they were very professional and everything went smoothly. Crew was entertaining. We even arrived early!! Sweet!"
Cons: "No frills. Paying extra for carry on and printing a boarding pass is outrageous. On the other hand it made me travel light. No crew at any spirit gate if it wasn't boarding. I wanted to ask someone a question about a friend who was coming on another flight and couldn't find anyone."
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 ."
Pros: "Attendants we're great."
Cons: "Should not charge for coffee, tea or water."
Cons: "Spirit Airline employees did not inform us that there was an option for a gate pass to take my 82 year old mother through security. When i mentioned this to a ticket agent, she told me that is only offered for young children travellong alone. What the HECK is the difference for the elderly? Also, there was another elderly passenger on same flight whose daughter had said pass. They need to get their perspective straight where elderly travellers are concerned."
Pros: "Friendly (and funny) staff and flight attendants. On time. Comfortable."
Cons: "I have traveled on several different airlines in my lifetime and wanted to give your airline a chance. Although your ticket prices are lower than most, I do like to travel with a piece of luggage or at the very least a reasonable sized carry on. The fees to have a checked bag are ridiculous and the measurements required for carry on are substandard! The seat sizes are less than roomy and please know I am by most standards an average sized person weighing in at approximately 150lbs. The tray tables are extremely small and couldn't imagine having to actually put food or drinks upon them. Which leads me to your food and drink pricing, let's just say you don't even wear a mask when you rob your passangers! I would rather be thirsty and hungry than to pay the absurd amount of money you ask for. The crew, not real friendly doing the bare minimum of what is required. The captains on each end were more interested in talking on their cell phones than by greeting passangers. It goes a long way with passangers when you feel confident or at the very least acknowledged by the crew. There was no entertainment offered on my flights, which is fine as I can surely entertainment myself for 2 + hours. Their website is less than user friendly. Having to set up separate accounts for myself and family is time consuming and completely unnecessary! When there was an issue with the tickets it was very difficult to get any real help from customer service. The 'hidden' fees with Spirit are absolutely crazy! No money saved! I was so disappointed in my experiences with Spirit Airline. I couldn't in good faith recommend them to familyand friends ."
Pros: "Spirit between Hartford and Myrtle Beach is not only the least expensive flight, but the only direct flight available. Know that you need to plan ahead with luggage and 2nd carry-ons (not inexpensive add on fees) to get the most value. It's only a 90 minute flight - don't need food or entertainment."
