Cons: "Sold out of all meals, only snacks left, before reaching my row."

Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for an hour for a flight that takes 30 minutes"
Pros: "NOTHING ㅗ"
Cons: "GROUND SERVICE. The flight was delayed causing me to miss my connecting flight. The ground staff at BWI said they could do nothing about it. I spent an extra $1000."
Cons: "Connecting flight was missed"
Pros: "On time, clean plane, lots of room, great service"
Pros: "entertainment options and the direct flight"
Cons: "seats are too close and tight"
Pros: "I liked the way I was treated during the entire trip"
Cons: "we had a few turbalances during trip which couldn't be helped, other than all went well."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."
Pros: "Had all 3 seats to myself, Great service from flight attendants"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very slow checkin. No urgency. Boarding pass machines were broken so everyone had to wait in line and struggled to make flight."
Cons: "When Alaska Airline counter opened up at BWI Airport at 2:30pm this afternoon, they absolutely ignored those customers in line. The customer service lacked service. This is Not what AA is noted for for. Supervisors need to make sure their staff is ready to greet customers standing in line and process them promptly."
Pros: "Excellent service and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "The fact that if you didn’t pay for a seat you had to wait until everyone else boards then you can get a seat. Also if they could have told you to download Gogo app when we first get on the plane."
Pros: "Direct flight, seat next to me was empty so had a little room to spead out."
Cons: "Bad weather delayed the flight by 2 hours, bumpy the last half. flight attendent talked too much gave me a headache!"
Pros: "All done right. They know how to do airline!"
Pros: "We loved that the boarding was so easy because we had assigned seats. Everything went smoothly and we were able to leave earlier than planned because we were ready. That was nice. The pilot was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, arrogant, and didn’t do their job well. They stayed in the back texting the entire flight instead of attending to people and when someone asked for water they acted like it was a man joe nuisance. It was very off-putting."
Pros: "Left early, arrived early, check in process was easy, boarding convenient."
Cons: "Cabin was too bright for a red-eye flight, so I couldn't really sleep"
Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."
Pros: "Everything about the flight, from boarding to deplaning."
Cons: "The menu could use an upgrade but that’s the only thing bad I could say..."
Pros: "Living in Seattle, there is no other choice. Alaska gets me where I need to go with great service, great planes and direct flights to my most important destinations. Considering I have banned United, Southwest, and Spirit from my travel searches, it's nice to know my hometown airline is so damned good."
Pros: "Very comfortable and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Crew had a horrible attitude"
Pros: "Paul was my flight attendant who was excellent. Good breakfast, constant service. Great 1st class. Will fly whenever they are on my routes"
Pros: "The staff is pleasant"
Pros: "Wonderful crew. They kept apologizing for the delay but it was beyond their control. Luggage was promptly on the baggage claim as promised."
Cons: "Flight delay due to weather."
Pros: "I really appreciated that Alaska Airlines called me in advance to let me know that my original flight would be substantially delayed. They reseated me on a direct flight to Portland. Otherwise, I would have missed the wedding I was attending. I appreciate how proactive Alaska is."
Pros: "Clean - leg room - nice crew - boarding process great"
Cons: "Gate at LAX wasn't prepared to receive our flight"
Pros: "Had great interactions with crew and customer service rep, who added my TSA Prechek number over the phone because I couldn't do it when booking through Kayak. Great price for a nonstop cross country flight. Arrived on time with no drama, except for the seat neighbor who couldn't keep her feet out of my area."
Cons: "Would've welcomed a snack, but hey...can't be choosy."
Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Pros: "The boarding was quick & as usual Alaska is on time! I'd like to thank Taylor from flt 784 from BWI to SAN. She took good care of my son who wasn't feeling well."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accomodating. I also liked that I could change my seat even after I checked in so that I could have the most comfortable travel possible as someone traveling alone."
Cons: "Although it worked out ok. I thought that the boarding process was a little chaotic. I expected that we would line up according to our seat rows. But the boarding process still went ok."
Pros: "The straight flight part."
Cons: "There were no blankets and it was a bit cold on the flight"
Pros: "Refreshment and entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The service, the aircraft, and reasonable upgrades to first class"
Pros: "The flight was generally like any other flight"
Cons: "I had paid for a nonstop flight at a certain time to get home for an important meeting, but because I booked through a third party they said I was going to be bumped to another flight that would get me home over 12 hours later WITH a layover. That's frankly not what I paid for. That makes me not want to ever book with a third party again. I don't appreciate not getting what I pay for. Eventually someone took a voucher and I was able to get on the flight, but I'm still upset because, as the customer, I did nothing wrong. Just book the proper amount of seat for the proper amount of people. So frustrating."
Pros: "Great crew and leg room."
Cons: "My TSA Pre wasn't put on my boarding pass, so I had to go back to check in to get it reprinted, which was very annoying and wasted about 30 minutes."
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Long flight, no food. Crying kid that kept kicking the back of my seat (not airlines fault). They have a nice movie but you can watch on your phone.... that I learned about with 45 minutes left into a 6-hour flight. They really should have done a better job of letting passengers know about their options while in flight. A shot of Jack would have been VERY appreciated just for putting up with the kid/family. I joke.... but yeah, that would have been nice."
Pros: "This was one of the newer 737s I've gluten on recently, and it definitely makes a difference. Spacious seats and comfortable headrests made this a very pleasant trip, not to mention power outlets. Also the coffee was nice and hot."
Pros: "My flights arrived early on both ends of a round trip—loved it! Plus, it was great having more leg room than the average airline offers. I'm over 6 feet tall. Leg room is a VERY big deal for folks like me."
Cons: "On the return trip, my plane taxied on the runway for over 30 minutes due to a conga line. As a result, an early arrival pretty much became an on-time arrival, so I'll give Alaska the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "I was greeted the moment I boarded."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like except a pending typhoon but we were kept informed."
Pros: "From checking in the bags to boarding the flight, the staff was very helpful. They really care about their customers. My friend and I were separated on the flight and they did everything to sit us together."
Cons: "I don't like sitting in the middle seat for 6 hours"
Cons: "The flight attendant said my bag was too large for the overhead bin, and would need to be checked. Her demeanor was rude, and unprofessional. She said "well, if you can close this bin, then go right ahead". I closed it very easily. Her behavior made me much less likely to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "the crew was very attentive , i liked that they board the back of the plane first"
Cons: "my in flight internet services didnt work at all and the food options were awful . we need a little more leg and aisle room"
Pros: "I was very satisfied with my flight from BWI to LAX on May 10,2016. The crew was great. Boarding was easy. I think the value of the fruit and cheese plate was worth it. I feel like I got great value for what I paid for my ticket. On future trips I would consider flying Alaska again."
Wifi didn’t work for me. Would be nice to have screens.
Cons: "Late taking off. Late arriving. Tiny plane, no entertainment system, took everyone's carryon. Had to wait to get carryon back."
Pros: "Fast boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t as attentive. While my first flight (I had a layover) seemed extra attention and care was put into the cleanliness and order due to Covid, second flight seemed to be a little overcrowded."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. No space. Food made me sick."
Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"
Pros: "Flight attendant coughed in my face twice without covering her mouth while I was seated and she was passing out drinks and snacks"
Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."

Pros: "We were deplained twice from two different plains going to LGA. We are now booked on a third plain going to JFK. Hope we can get home. I have a surgical appointment tomorrow."
Cons: "We bought First Class tickets. But we were downgraded How do you think we should feel ? We have been in Charlotte since 9:30 AM It is now 6:45 PM Should we use the train to go home?"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"

Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"

Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"
Pros: "Leo was friendly and helpful, a wonderful presence on the flight."
Cons: "Multiple delays in Atlanta"
Pros: "Nothing other than it was over quickly."
Cons: "Seat did not recline at all."
Pros: "I love being on a smaller plane/jet! Boarding was painless and I had no problems with my two small bags. Due to a mix-up in seating, I had both seats to myself! We even got in will before the scheduled time! De-boarding took far less time than "regular" plane/jet!!!"
Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"
Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."
Pros: "Airport staff was nice.. Boarding was good.. Flight attendants very friendly.. Smooth trip"
Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"
Pros: "Staff all was good."
Cons: "Why did aa.com make a connection with alaska airlines? I had to LEAVE the airport to switch termknals, go through security again, then my luggage never made it to the next flight."
Pros: "Smooth price getting boarding pass and we were anytime sit together"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was great seats like always aren’t comfy"

Cons: "WiFi was down"
Cons: "more room, better boarding procedure, on time take off"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Carry-on luggage needs to be monitored more closely. I saw one passenger with three pieces. Meanwhile, I had to stow my bag 10 rows behind me."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Cons: "It would have been helpful if American Airlines would notify passengers when they have selected a window seat where no window exists. I am very broad shouldered and that extra 3 inch well the window creates is crucial for me. Terrible 4 1/2 hours in a very uncomfortable position."
Cons: "Landing was rough."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "One of our fellow passengers was willing to change seats so my wife and I could sit together."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of American's Basic Economy, where they nickel-and-dime for every little thing. Choosing seats while checking in online does not cost the airline any more than assigning them, so charging for the privilege of choosing your seat is simply a money grab."
Cons: "Wi-Fi was spotty."
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Cons: "Flight delayed and bot enough overhead space."
Cons: "Tecnical problems dellay no good american arlines i dont recomended"
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "Clean, Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "I don’t understand how a brief meaning less than 30 minutes thunderstorm can cause a five hour delay. Every time I take the route from DCA to STL American is always really late"
Pros: "Easy. Efficient. Crew follows regulations and applies rules fairly and firmly."
Cons: "Signage unclear no ticket less check-in cpfisong announcers are rude in person and inaudible over PA system."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"
Pros: "We left right on time. Plane was clean and had option to charge phone"
Cons: "You had to pay to check a bag and you had to pay for food. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "There was NO ROOM for my legs when the man in front of me reclined his seat. I could not work on my laptop because it was such a ridiculously tight fit. I am 5'9" tall, and i have never been so cramped on an airplane."
Cons: "Potable water was down so no coffee, tea, or more important... water to wash hands. Then they didn’t have my second choice of beverages after coffee either."
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "On time, good service."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
Pros: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"
Cons: "planes were really old and uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all, the seats are ridiculously small and not fit for a grown up. One of the worst flights ever for sure"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "It was my first time I was a little scared but not anymore it was a smooth ride. Don't change nothing keep up the good work. Thanks for letting me explore"
Cons: "My flight was changed to later time; however I didn't receive any notification. Flight was later and didn't get seat I requested on original flight."
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of meals by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "A little crowded"
Pros: "I was in first class, so the legroom and seat comfort is good. The seats were removed with leather and headrest was movable."
Cons: "The gate agent didn't enforce the carry-on policies. Large roller bags were turned sideways in the overhead bins. Flight attendants were not friendly. Why pay profit sharing to employees if they still are treating people badly. Overall it was an ok flight, I wouldn't go out of my way to fly them, just if they are the cheapest, because their attitude towards paying customers is horrible. I wish I could return the favor to them one day, I bet they wouldn't like it very much."
Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag. Brought only a carry on to avoid baggage claim, but was forced to check it anyway. There is NO organization to the boarding process, so in the free-for-all at boarding, people in any boarding group are let through with WAY MORE than 1 carry on and 1 personal item, leaving no room for my bag and I was in group 2 (not sure how many groups there are). Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."
Pros: "The plain went to the runway then stated that needed more gas due to weather so we returned to the gate, three hours later we finally departed. In two flights in three days I was delayed 9 hours"
Cons: "The 9 hours delay and zero compensation"
Cons: "We were never offered our drink or snack. Then the male attendant called my wife "sir" when asking her to put up the tray table"
Pros: "By the time I boarded the plane three hours late nothing short of a flux capacitor to make the plane fly back in time would have made this trip even decent."
Cons: "It was just so late."
Pros: "Wheel chair service"
Cons: "A/C outlets and bathroom sink did not work"
Pros: "Great crew. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. Could be more softer."
Cons: "We should have had less in our carry on so we had more leg room. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of movies, tv options, and games to pass the time when we weren't sleeping on the over night flight."
Pros: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."
Cons: "Dang the seats are just small in the coach area. Great smooth flight and my bag arrived where it was supposed to be. Cant complain there"
Pros: "The crew was great and the landing into Denver was very smooth."
Cons: "I miss the good old days where Captain X tells us what’s seeable out the window!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice, boarding was smooth, and we even landed early. Great flight."

Pros: "The app promoted me to check in on my phone and would not allow me to check in. So I assumed the time on the ticket would be my boarding time. I was late for my flight."
Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Cons: "Had to wait on wheel chair upon arrival"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "I enjoyed my interaction with the other passengers."
Cons: "Several delays compounded to make trip a lot longer and far less comfortable than it needed to be."
Cons: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"
Cons: "No tv Flight delayed"
Pros: "Flight was on time; no delays; great crew! Really clear day - could see the ground the entire way between Denver and Grand Rapids. Thanks for great flights - both to and from GR/Denver/Santa Barbara!"
Cons: "As previously noted."
Pros: "That the flight was earlier then Expected"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "Pretty good crew but much less communication regarding flight and connection times."
Cons: "I wish the pilot would have told us what we were flying over!"
Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "It got me to where I was going."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for entertainment."
Pros: "We waited for 12 people that were running late from a connecting flight. It ended up being a 45 min delay and I was so impressed that they waited. I had a precious experience from a different airline that didn't wait for us, 6 of us with first class tickets, and we were only 5 min late! So, great that United waited for these passengers. And the time lost, was made up in the air."
Cons: "On at least one leg of my trip both two and from my destination the flight was late. As if that wasn't bad enough, twice the plane was over sold and people had to be removed to stay and catch a later flight which in turn made the plane even later. Many people either had to run to catch their connection or missed it all together. Several of which had small children. I fly about half a dozen times a year and this was the worst of the year."
Pros: "Good flight overall would book again"
Pros: "On time, good service"
Cons: "Power outlets worn out and won't hold a plug so they are unusable"
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Cons: "There seem to always be delays on my united flights. This flight was delayed about 30-45 minutes with no major apologies or some type of compensation from them. Even a food voucher or a free alcoholic beverage would've been nice."
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was non stop to Denver."
Cons: "I did not like waiting on the plane for over an hour while the plane waited to get fuel."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Enjoyed the new legroom"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Another flight were maintenance became an issue to the point we needed a new plane. What I love about United is that it only took an hour (and not 3+ hours or a total cancellation) to find a new plane and bring it to the gate after they ran into problems. I also love the happiness and relaxed crew after a passenger started an argument and fight with another passenger. They handled it extremely well and made sure that every one else was comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like being delayed, but it happens..."
Cons: "Delays caused missed connections in not directions and terrible rerouting plus lost luggage"
Pros: "This was a 4 hour flight. A TV would have been nice."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could in a difficult situation. Captain kept us updated. Flight attendants offered water/ one snack."
Cons: "We were on the plane for approx. 10 hours. It was supposed to be a 2 hour flight. Weather in Texas and the post Christmas crowds converged to make a "perfect storm" of delays. It was frustrating not being allowed to de-board the plane during long delays in Denver, Austin and finally, in Houston."
Pros: "Everything was very good!!!"
Pros: "Seats are small and cramped."
Pros: "Very helpful crew especially the young black guy."
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Pretty mediocre"
Cons: "Lost baggage messed up my camping trip"
Pros: "The crew are wonderful and very helpful. We really enjoy the flight."
Pros: "That the flight was over"
Cons: "Had to pay for flight, tiny sardine seat, water and people on flight were in a huge hurry to exit plane at gate, hardly waiting for row by row polite deplaning. At least I had an assigned seat! Baggage took a long time to arrive. The crowd on flight were very loud - awkward personal conversations. Crew were good."
Pros: "I remember I used to fly with spirit and they were the worst airline. I can tell now they have changed a lot and they have improved in all ways. No delays"
Cons: "They should at least have water for the passengers. But in overall it was a pretty comfy flight."
Cons: "If sike they can't change my flight so i don't like spirit airline!"
Pros: "Had a row to my self. Comfortable."
Cons: "The cost of checking bags and having to pay for a seat. I thought when you purchased an airline ticket it included a seat. Imagine my surprise when I had to pay for a seat."
Cons: "$57 for carry on!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Late 4.5hrs, several false "we're boarding now". No communication of what the issue was. No in-flight service, even a soda wasn't free. Never again."
Cons: "Upgraded my seat to be comfortable; it was more uncomfortable than the cheap seats. Seat did not even recline. Since the plan was not full we waited on the plain for an hour in half for more passengers before take off. There is no really food choices. Only junk food for purchase. Would not recommend Spirit to my worst enemy. My inexpensive flight cost more if I flow with a top notch airlines."
Pros: "Horrible airlines. Worst experience I have ever had flying. Terrible Costumer Service. Hidden costs everywhere. I will aggressively spread the word for people to not use this airline."
Pros: "That I had a good seat"
Cons: "Paying for carry on and for food and drinks"
Cons: "Spririt airlines is ALWAYS delaying flights... I know this cause I have flown this airlines for about 4 flights now. I just wish it would be on time for a change :("
Cons: "All their flights were delayed that day, so my red eye flight ended up "really" delayed. I waited 4 hours in the airport and the the flight was delayed by over 3 hours as well. Then after all of that, they offered not even water (for free) on their four hour flight. I understand delays happen - but consider offering a little something to your customers when this kind of event happens!"
Pros: "I eventually got there"
Cons: "This flight changed my entire experience. The desk people are so cold I watched at least 5 people cry due to their harsh communication and rigid decisions. Got into the airport at 7 something am and didn't make it on a flight to New Orleans until 9 layover Florida. Staff wasn't easy to work with I would've paid hundreds extra for a better experience"
Cons: "I thought the lady was a bit rude when I asked to go use the bathroom. And I also thought the crew was up and down the aisles way too much on this short flight."
Pros: "The price was good but not worth it if the flight is cancelled and my parents cannot get out until two days later. They incurred additional taxi costs having to get a ride from the airport after flight was cancelled. We should get free airplane tickets or some other provision."
Cons: "See above. Flight was cancelled for two days."
Cons: "I spent money on the cab to the airport only to be turned away because spirit canceled the flight. They told me my money would be returned but I have not seen anything yet."
Pros: "I lived, the flight crew were ok."
Cons: "Pretty much everything to do with this airline. Check in and boarding to leave were acceptable, Baggage fee for Carry on that I was not expecting. On the return flight at check in I was informed that they believed I had not used their airline to fly out and my return flight was cancelled because of that. After producing my boarding pass Nothing was done to get me home. The solutions provided at the check in counter were not acceptable. "We have another flight 24 hours from now, no we won't find you a hotel room" "We can refund you 1/4 the cost of a new different flight to get you home since we messed up" "We can put you on stand by incase people don't show up for the flight" Ultimately these morons paid several passengers to get off the plane to get me and my companion home. Giving these other passengers more than what I was requesting to begin with including a slightly later flight on a different carrier and a round trip voucher for later use on spirit. This is the worst run and least efficient airline I have EVER used. I will never use spirit again."
Pros: "Spirit took care of us with a hotel and the soonest connecting flight to our final destination."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, then the aircraft we were on had to make an emergency landing were we were there for 5 hours before a new aircraft had came to pick us up. It was a huge hassle there was no commication. This delay caused all connecting flights to be missed. What should have been a 6 hour flight turned into two days of flying. This caused unnessary stress and a huge headache to made sure we made it on time where we needed to be. Some issues are uncontrollable but it could have been handled so much better. This was a long flight of waiting around for flights, planes, and to even our luggage which took an hour to retrieve."
Cons: "$55 baggage fee that went from $65 to $100 if paid at the gate seemed outrageous."
Cons: "Worst airline I've ever flown with period. The tickets are priced low just to get you on a 50$ bag fee! Really? Not only that, they try charging you 60$ for your carry on at the gate, oh and if you don't pay they have the nerve to say at the gate before entering the plane they'll charge you 100$. Never ever again will I fly with them..."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Ticket agents were helpful."
Cons: "Ticket kiosk didn't work well. Seat pocket was filled with garbage from previous flight. Cannot tolerate flight crew hawking credit cards. It's intrusive. I think their time would be better spent in safety and comfort needs of passengers."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and boarding was good. No complaints."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on descent, as well as a hard landing on a day of seemingly perfect weather."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Primitive boarding procedure nearly caused us to miss the flight. Kiosks won't print your boarding pass within 45 minutes of your flight time, even if you are checked into your flight. And Spirit does not permit you to use a boarding pass on your phone, you must waste natural resources & print. Unfortunately, we had a problem while returning our rental car, so we were later to the kiosk than planned. So, we had to wait in line to ask an employee at the counter to print out boarding passes. Thanks to the kind passengers of LAX airport letting us jump in line several times, we made our flight just as doors closed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and not supporting crew were not polit very unpleasant"
Pros: "The price and convenience of the non-stop flight"
Cons: "Compared to the flight to Los Angeles staff was very mediocre compared to other airlines very uncomfortable planes"
Cons: "I was charged $55 dollars for my luggage at check in when another passenger was not. The other passenger had a backpack and large duffle bag that my larger than my luggage but because his was "soft" he wasn't charged. I feel that it was outside of your guidelines and not fair and probably took place because the female associate checking him in was being flirtatious. I was excited to train out his airline but was extremely disappointed."
Cons: "First my flight was canceled do to " weather conditions" even though all other airlines were flying out to the same city. When I asked for help the desk attendant said I can look on my phone for available flights. So I didn't feel like the staffed cared at all. The flight back went without a delay but the airplane felt very cramped and with no entertainment to distract us from our 4 hour flight. When I did finally order a coffee and muffin the flight attendant staired at me like I wasn't speaking English. And passed everything to me 1 by 1 in the most awkward uncomfortable way. I don't know how exactly to describe it but it was incredibly strange and not very professional. Over all I won't be flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Being charged for water"
Pros: "Crew were delightful; Gate staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were awful; when I made my reservation, I selected my seat for each leg of my journey then when I arrived at the airport and checked in, I was given different seats.... paying $55 for a carry-on is ludicrous! I will not fly Spirit ever again!"
Cons: "Alaska would've been a much better and more economical choice. Had no idea Spirit charges for bags until after I bought the ticket through Khyak. They might've said something! Also, Alaska has free carryons, diet cokes and peanuts. Spirit won't be around long."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats that did not recline."
Cons: "It is my first time to pay for food in the aircraft... even I couldn't get water for free... plus as compared other airlines I didn't like the payment for the baggage. How could some one travels with out a checking bag. At least 1 checking bag should have been for free.."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 1 hr... staff kept saying 10 mins and then 10 more mins and it ended up being 1 hr."
Pros: "Check in at the airport was fast (no line)."
Cons: "I was charged $12 for my seat like it was an upgrade- tiny seat that didn't even recline! Most uncomfortable I've ever been on a plane. I was also going to be charged $52 for each checked bag...??? When I told the woman at the counter that it was $31 online she was nice enough to only charge me that much, but what is that all about??!! My bag was 29 pounds, no where near the limit- $52??!! Ridiculous. Staff wasn't rude or anything but they weren't friendly either, just kind of blah. No in flight entertainment, not even free water. Not a great experience. I'll spend the extra money next time to be comfortable."
Pros: "One of my suitcases got left behind but it came in on a latter flight. My brother in law came in on that flight so he was able to pick it up for me. Saved the airline money on a courier from Houston to Galveston. I still don't have my clothes will pick them up at the ship. I called them to see if they would comp all my luggage on the way back but they wouldn't. I will never fly spirit airlines again. Thought I was getting a good deal on the flight but didn't with there expensive bag check on policy. $166 for three bags then I have to pay the same on the way home. What a rip off"
Pros: "Check in was fast and convenient!"
Cons: "Baggage fees are extremely high!"
Pros: "I liked the choice of Big Seats. That was probably my best purchase for the flight. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like the flight being late. I know these things happen, and part of the problem was the fault of the ground control people at LAX. For our flight to late because another airplane was blocking the jetway is poor management. Also, I know it costs a penny or so to transport soda on the airplane, but since very few people made purchases on the flight, it made no difference. So I think you could cut back a little on the idea of making the traveler pay for every little thing. The sodas are going to be there either way."
Pros: "Saved my missed flight going to Ohare .."
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on"
Pros: "I did not like any part of the experience. I love you kayak but please do not offer spirit airlines flights! They are truly terrible."
Cons: "Really dreadful! This airline is insanely riddled with hidden fees. They will charge you for every breath you take. By the time I was finished with paying the fees my flight had gone up by $100! Absolutely deplorable! I really enjoy kayak for the financial liberty it allows me and this Spirit airlines ripped it away from me. Not to mention none of these fees are mentioned before I purchased the flight! For god sakes buying a ticket doesn't even guarantee you a seat! I absolutely understand that every airline has extra fees, but Spirit was an insane outlier. I was charged for a Carry-on. A CARRY ON! Never again! Tisk tisk kayak!"
Cons: "The flight to Chicago was delayed 1 hour. I had an horrible experience with the return flight, they first delayed it 2 hours, then 3 hours, then 4 hours... I spent 5 hours in the airport before I gave up on them and cancelled my flight back. I had to buy a ticket from another company.... Also the ticket price is misleading because they charge you for carry-on luggage (like 50 USD). During the flight they even charge you for water, which is free in other airlines :-("
Cons: "For 24 hour check-in it costs money to pick a seat on website. Also checking bags are too expensive."
Pros: "I eventually got to my destination, even though it was 9 hours later."
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again. Worst customer service ever. The people at the ticket counter and the gate check in need to learn manners. I've never experienced such rude people. Spirit airlines must hire anyone to work in customer service, they must not care. I asked to talk to a manager and the guy at the counter said it would be an hour. Told him I would wait. A couple minutes later some guy (not sure if he really was the manager) was rude as well while talking to him. I've never traveled with Spirit. One of the workers later in the day after I told her my experience so far told me whispering "a lot of people don't like Spirit Airlines". Umm, hello? You know you have a bad reputation?!?!? Worst experience ever traveling. Makes you appreciate the real airlines. I don't think this airline is going to last. It'll save people a lot of headaches if they don't."
Pros: "Boarding on time. Felt safe, pilot communicated well with the passengers"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, no snacks, some staff seemed tired (could have been due to time of flight). Didn't work out to be much cheaper than any other airline and with much less perks (seats, entertainment, snacks)"
Pros: "Customer service in Manila speaks with heavy accent talks so loud. Do not undestand what they are saying. Then they became rude, asked for supervisor, they refused. Oversea customer service may be cheaper labor for the co, your customers have hard time understanding them. How can we use spirit? My mother handicapped senior ended up missing the flight because customers service put on a hold for 75 minutes. I called them to speak to a manager refused first time then put me on hold for an hour. I will put this terrible process experience on google, so people should, must know especially if this is concerning children or elderly seniors. The higher management should acknowledge and be accountable for people suffer great deal."
Cons: "Rude employees, incompetent staff. Outrageous hidden fees. First time I flew spirit they cancelled my connecting flight, escorted me out of the terminal, stood in line for 3 hours to be rescheduled to a flight the following day. They put me in a hotel an hour away with a shuttle that ran every 2 hours so I was able to sleep for 3 hours. Second experience... 5 hour delay from 730p to 12:30p departure. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Never booking spirit again. Absolute garbage airline."
Pros: "Nonstop flights from LAX to KC leaving and returning at reasonable times. I went to Ross and bought the largest bag I could find that met the personal item size restriction. Otherwise, all my ticket savings would have been used up by the small amount of luggage permitted. Feels like nickle and diming. I don't think this M.O. can last because people won't come back if they feel ripped off."
Cons: "The Spirit flight was delayed. No text or email from the airline though they had my info supposedly for that purpose. I found out by looking online right before we would have left to go to the airport. 1 1/2 hour delay. When I arrived at the airport, the monitors said the plane was now delayed 2 1/2 hours beyond initial departure time. Still no text or email. When I checked online, there was no update indicating the later departure time. Obviously, my time spent cooling my heels around the airport was of no concern to the airline. Also, led to me eating overpriced airport food rather than food at home when the delay pushed the flight into the dinner hour."
Pros: "The price of the flight is hard to beat. I can live without the seats reclining and a free soda."
Cons: "Pay attention when buying your ticket. There are extra fees like paying for the seat you want or for checked bags."
Cons: "I had to buy another ticket for 400 from Alaskan because spirit kept pushing the flight back. flight # 869 on den 20th. Check it out."
