Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit. (It took forever"

Pros: "never booking with alaska airlines again"

Cons: "They couldn't land in Ketchikan due to fog so they flew up to Sitka and got back 3 hours later, missed my connection in Seattle and spent the night at the airport, the I got charged 50 dollars for switching my tickets, are you kidding me, Alaska airlines sucks big time"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing..."

Pros: "wifi phone charging"
Cons: "I arrived later than most, since my connecting flight was tight. Unfortunately, other passengers had let their young daughter take my seat and didn't seem to understand that I wanted to sit by a window (having never flown to the northwest, I wanted to see the view). Didn't want to seem like a heartless adult, so I sat in the aisle seat in another row. not good! constantly jostled by people going to and from the bathroom. and the kid closed the window anyways! I saw people take someone else's seat on the way to Portland, but the original person asked them to move. Guess it's a common thing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "As I went to board my flight to return to Austin my seat was changed for "operational purposes" from a window to seat B elsewhere. I hate to complain and at the point we were boarding and I simply wanted to return home. However I have motion sickness typically and really hate being stuck in seat B neither on the isle or window as this really does not assist with feeling nauseated. Furthermore the seat I was placed in did not recline so I was unable to relax at all once we were airborne."

Pros: "Plane was late to the terminal. Crew got it turned over, boarded, and off the ground in a very small amount of time."
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment despite booking the tickets months ahead of time, and checking in 24 hours before the flight. The plane was already mostly boarded by the time I was finally assigned a seat."

Pros: "The flight was quiet. No loud talkers was able to sleep."
Cons: "Too many people with more than one carry on. I was unable to store my bag above my seat."

Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "While traveling recently with Alaska Airlines, my traveling partner and I were offered seats in the exit row, by the lady who checks your boarding pass at the gate. We gladly excepted the roomier seating. We were issued new boarding passes, and made our way to our seats. Once we settled in, a flight attendant asked to see my boarding pass. She looked at it and said, "Yep Amber so-and-so, seat 17B." Apparently, the airline had combined 2 flights, so people were all crammed into a new tighter space. There was even a bumped "first class" customer all squabbling over the seats. My traveling partner and I, eventually just asked them to please give us our old seats back. Finally, we were seated in our original seats. We never asked to be moved in the first place, it was offered to us. The whole thing was humiliating, and unnecessary."

Pros: "The crew were all great."
Cons: "I had a window seat and the window itself looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. It was not only dirty but it was gross. Smears of what appeared to be a dried up liquid or something. Lastly, there were smeared boogers in several different spots around the window. I didn't want to touch anything. Seriously the nastiest flight I've been on."

Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."

Pros: "No need to print boarding pass is nice because most customers don't have a printer at home. Great idea using an app on customers' smart devices. Charging ports is great plus."
Cons: "Lack of free services to kill time during a long flight. No free music and lack of free video. I was surprised Samsung Note 7 wasn't banned during my flight because of the battery issue."

Cons: "YOU CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR OVERWEIGHT PACKAGE."

Cons: "There was not enough room for my small sized bag to fit in the overhead. Crew members seemed nice, but then would go to the back and laugh and say something rude about a passenger. This was a late night 3 hour flight and no entertainment was offered. It was freezing during the entire flight and no blanket was available. Overall, I was not pleased with my experience with Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "A red eye that boarded late-- Oof. I tried to upgrade to first class, but it was sold out. I had never been on an upgrade wait list before, so when I (very politely!) asked what my chances were since my name was next up on the screen. The attendant at the service desk was very snippy with me, as if I were being demanding or rude. I had a smile on my face, and spoke in a low voice, wasn't begging or sighing or guffawing. There was no one else at the counter, just me and the attendant who treated me like I was the most annoying loser he'd ever met, for no reason. The flight itself was so cramped that I couldn't sleep, of course. I was hoping to catch some shut-eye on this red eye, because I had to be at work in the morning. No such luck. Alaska really, really, really needs to open a mid-day flight from SEA to ATX. Only 5am and 11pm aren't cutting it, and both flights were jam packed. Six hours is an awfully long layover."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"

Cons: "Excellent service"

Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Lots of in flightentertainment options"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"

Pros: "Excellent support from all the Delta associaties"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."

Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."

Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."

Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"

Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."

Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."

Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"

Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."

Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"

Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Cons: "Goog"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."

Pros: "on time, clean, prompt."

Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."

Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"

Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."

Pros: "What they offer is OK."

Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"

Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"

Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."

Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."

Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed as always, time it was a 2 hour delay. The worse airline I've flown on."

Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."

Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."

Cons: "We needed to get off the plane bc of a fuel spill, otherwise was fine."

Cons: "Crew was rude. Plane was late. But I'm happy overall. Glad you got me home safe n sound."

Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."

Pros: "Traveling with a toddler isn't easy. The delta crew went above and beyond to make the trip more pleasant for us."

Cons: "I travelled from usa to canada on 7 nov and after 2 hours waiting in airport they informed us that due to some issue Delta can not deliver our bagagges also one of Delta airport's staff behaved very badly (his name was Manny) , helpless and rude.I missed an important dinner meeting because of not having any suitable dress. I have many friends and family who lives in canada and usa but by facing this bad behaviour and problems never ever recomnd your airline to any of them."

Cons: "The climate control didn't work properly the whole flight. We sat on the tarmac for about 30 minutes after boarding. We sat in the plane for about 15 minutes after landing and the whole time the air wasn't working. Couple that with the fact that I was seated in the row in front of the emergency exit which actually has less room than a normal seat and it made for a miserable flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The people at the help desk of Delta at Detroit, like the ones at JFK, were not helpful, bordering on being rude. They did not give essential info. E.g., I had to ask if a shuttle to and from the airport-hotel was provided and where it was located, if food/meals were provided. the agent seemed annoyed that I had questions and that I asked for a meal voucher."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats, super uncomfortable seats that almost put me in tears. No cold air, only warm air. Food served was expired in may of 2015. They only served beverages with dinner and never again in 8 hours of flying. Bathrooms had urine and toilet paper all over them. They were absolutely disgusting. I have been in subway bathrooms that were cleaner. This was the first time flying Delta and it will be the last time."

Cons: "Plane left an hour late,made big problems for people picking me up"

Pros: "Crew did a nice job, very friendly."
Cons: "Wish you could have at least music during short flights. Don't know why you can't. It would take my mind off being shoved in a seat that I'm too tall for. I don't pack my own music because I try to travel as light as possible."

Pros: "The crew were very professional"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Another passenger (P1) appeared to have issues with having a window seat (perhaps he felt claustrophobic) and had asked the flight attendant if he could help him find an aisle seat. The attendant kindly asked around and unfortunately no one offered their seat. Once all passengers had boarded the plane, the row in front P1's seat had an empty middle seat. The attendant kindly asked the passenger that was sitting next to P1 to move to the seat in that row so that P1 had extra space. It was great to see how attentive and accommodating the attendant was to P1's concerns/needs. Great customer service from him and the rest of the crew staff."

Pros: "The flight attendant was amiable enough and completed her duties with a smile despite turbulence."
Cons: "The only thing more disgusting than this plane was the stench of Wendy's fast food-which nearly half the passengers thought appropriate to bring onboard despite being in enclosed space with others. After the door was closed we were asked to sit at the gate while maintenance cleared an error code... we were stuck there, in a hot metal tube, festering in the fetor of cooked animal carcass. Isn't there some sort of air filter for this?"

Pros: "That you had given us free excess to games and some movies, and given us a option to buy a movie. Great idea."

Pros: "The entire crew!!! Love that they offer drinks and snacks for free!!!"
Cons: "I loved everything about the flight!!"

Cons: "Due to the weather it was scary but the pilot was great. He got us there safe"

Pros: "The price for me to fly from Detroit to Austin on Spirit was great. Thank you for making travel more affordable yo see my family!"

Pros: "Easy check in Easy to navigate DTW Smooth and uneventful flight"

Cons: "Went from an expected 7 hr layover to an unexpected 12 hour layover"

Cons: "Good value upto a point."

Cons: "I was told to take all of the stickers off my bag before checking it in or the bag would be lost. I took the stickers off the back for the first time in 5 years of global travel and for the first time, the bag was lost for 3 days. I personally think the person checking in my bag did not like me and intentionally lost my bag. We will never no. As a result I had to purchase $341.86 worth of safety equipment so I could start the job I was on. I never received a refund for my baggage fee. I was not reimbursed for my time and money spend to cover the losses after the airlines failure. I would fly the airline again as long as I was not checking bags."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "No PreCheck"

Pros: "The fight was good."
Cons: "When we called about taking a small bag which was very small, I was told that my purse Had to go into my small carry on. Or I had to pay. When I called the airlines at first the cost was 40.00 and later on in the evening it was $90.00 . Plus it was someone we couldn't understand. We ask ti be transferded to some one in America., but was told lines were busy. So I just took my wallet . I was only gone over the week end . I was very disappointed in all the charges.i would think a small purse would be ok."

Pros: "Nice crew , on time boarding and arrival time"
Cons: "Old sits"

Cons: "rudeness of gate attendants mistake made by checkin attendant caused me an extra 2 hr at the airport gate attendant refused to give me last seat on standby and then spoke to other employees about me I was on stand by because of an error the gate attendant made and NOBODY wanted to fix it RUDE RUDE RUDE Will never fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, was greeted, friendly, helpful"
Cons: "No food was provided unless you wanted to buy it"

Pros: "This was truly an economy flight."
Cons: "I was surprised that there was a cost for a carry on bag. Are we moving to a point where cost trumps customer service?"

Pros: "Crew was good and flight departure and arrival."
Cons: "The ala carte prices for basics luke water, juice, soda pop."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Plane late"

Pros: "I'd heard horror stories about flying with Spirit but my first trip went off without a hitch. I'll be using them again."

Pros: "What I thought was a very cheap flight home - now I know to be a scam."
Cons: "The fact that Spirit Airlines nickles & dimes you all the way. The base fare was about $60 and I've since spent over $200 on this flight. Between carry on and checked luggage fees, seat costs, and even a cost to print boarding pass (since they don't have mobile boarding passes), I'm over $200 for this one way ticket from Detroit to Boston. This morning I arrived to the airport at 6:15 AM for a 7:15 AM flight. I was already checked in and had paid for my checked bag. I was directed to the wrong line to give them my bag. After waiting in this line for about 25 minutes, I was directed to another line. By the time I got up to the an agent - they informed me I was too late by 10 minutes and would be missing my flight. I fly just about every other week for work and this has NEVER happened and would never happen with airlines like Jet Blue, American and Delta. Today I'm missing a very important day of work. In addition to all the costs associated with this flight, cab fares to/from the airport and hotel expenses are totaling just about $200. I will absolutely NEVER fly Spirit again."

Cons: "that the seats didnt recline"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Couldn't recline the seat not even a little was in the upright position the hole flight."

Cons: "Charging for standard carry ons Charging to choose seats-because????? The "cozy feel" of smaller seats How dirty the plane was overrall-didn't look like it was cleaned since last flight or two"

Pros: "I had more leg room"
Cons: "Seat assignments they had empty seats but thestill assigned three people to a section"

Pros: "Price, on time."
Cons: "Couldn't check in from my Iphone or Ipad. Seats had no back pocket and extremely small. You can't choose your seat or take on carry on without extra fees."

Pros: "I enjoyed the crew's upbeat personalities and sense of humor during the informative portion of the flight, seat belt and exit information."
Cons: "The attitude of the woman at the check in desk when I asked for information about checking in with this company as I typically fly with a different airline."

Pros: "Two delays, Rush on boarding and flight attendant thT treated us like children!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Gate changed and delays were not announced to keep us informed. Communication with passengers helps us decide if we have time to go to the restroom, buy something to eat and call our friends or family who are picking us up. Please try harder to do this."

Cons: "Delay delay delay."

Cons: "-space for legs -boarding process messy -2 hours late (and 30mn for the first trip to NY)"

Cons: "You guys lost my luggage that wasn't cool but they got it back to me the next day so all I well."

Pros: "The crew were nice and polite"
Cons: "My baggage was damaged could not be repaired."

Pros: "Flight was nice and quick. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to needing a pilot. Almost missed cause I went to the bar."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were cramped the plane had to wait 30 min for because of computer problems 55$ for carry on. Hope this is my last flight on sport air lines"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice. Seat and area surrounding was clean. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "The advertisement for the credit card is annoying"

Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."

Cons: "I booked a roundtrip flight between NY and Detroit, intending to leave last Saturday morning and return on Sunday evening. I received a confirmation email from Kayak saying that my return flight was on the same day. I checked online at Spirit to see that my return flight was indeed at the correct time I intended (Sunday evening). However, I kept getting flight confirmation emails from Kayak saying my return flight was on Saturday. I tried calling Spirit and Kayak to get this fixed - as it made me worried I didn't have the right flight booked - and could not get any help. I was able to talk with someone about the return flight mixup, but they just promised me a new confirmation email with correct flight times - I never received this email or any relief that my flights were booked properly until I actually got to the airport. That was immensely frustrating and I spent way too much time on hold trying to sort this out."

Cons: "Carry on baggage charge. And small seats and no free snack and drink"

Cons: "Plane took off 40 minutes late"

Cons: "terrible planning. terrible service. ridiculous airline."

Pros: "Beyond crowded seating. LITERALLY EVERYTHING COSTS EXTRA. Was kind of surprised there wasn't an extra charge for the air we used while on the plane. Even carry on bags cost BIG $$. I wouldn't fly until I checked other airlines and compare the whole cost involved. Thankfully it was a short flight. I don't know if I could have stayed for a longer one."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."

Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "This is the second time in a week that they cancelled the flight and after making us wait for 4 hrs in the airport and don't even compensate"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Once we boarded the plane in Detroit, the pilot announced that he got on the wrong track so we had to wait 30 min. Then he said that we have to wait for 15 more minutes. We ended up leaving with a 2 hour delay! The problems didn't stop here tho. Once we landed in Las Vegas the pilot said the passengers can't leave the plane for 30 more minutes because the crue hasn't set up the device to properly get off the plane. The 30 minutes turned into 45..... Yes, you guessed it, we stayed in the plane even longer than that. After 1 hour We were finally able to leave the plane. So basically what initially was supposed to be a 4 hour flight, Detroit-Las Vegas, turned out to be 7:30 long hours. It safe to say that this is not a way the passengers should be treated by Spirit airlines and if they continue to do so I don't see bright future for this company. People have many other options to use different airline companies!!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No leg room. Delay after delay. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Will not fly Spirit again."

Pros: "My random seating put me in a front premium seat - purely by chance."
Cons: "Nickel and dining on everything. Bag under 40 pounds - $50. Any food or drink on plane. Crew joked that they wouldn't charge me for ice. When we landed, there was one baggage carousel being used in the entire airport and it had four simultaneous flights' baggage coming on the same turnstile. We landed before 9 pm and finally got the bag I paid $50 to check at 10:10 pm. Staff was rude, made no apologies and basically had a "just deal with it" attitude."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled a few times and then I had to buy a much more expensive flight because I needed to get to my destination on time. Spirit promised everyone would be booked for another flight ASAP at no extra charge, however I had to book a flight leaving within the next 12 hours. So i bought a new flight and they refused to compensate! I'm going to fight this and never fly spirit again."

Pros: "The price of the ticket was great and the seats were fairly comfortable. They didn't recline but hey, I don't expect to get Waldorf Astoria comfort on a Motel 8 budget. LOL I got better than I expected for the value. This was my first trip with Spirit. I'm sold. As long as I was able to walk off the plane, I'm good. With the money I saved on my ticket I bought me some new outfits on my vacation. I stuffed them in my personal bag and did not have to pay extra. I got a lot in that bag, too; 4 dresses, a top, a skirt and some shoes. I'm good. LOL"

Pros: "Crew was nice only positive experience."
Cons: "No entertainment so not sure why this is a question..."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, pilots speakers volume was so loud that it hurt my ears, rude stewardess, don't even have free water??! I don't think they earn the right to have horrible customer service just because they are trying to save money on ticket prices"

Pros: "Haven't flown in 10 years! Spirit Airlines were awesome! Plane ride and staff were incredible"

Pros: "I finally got to my destination."
Cons: "Late boarding, lack of communication with customers, no foot room, not even free water - $3 for a bottle of water! Not even a snack unless you pay for it with plastic (wonder how they can do that since US money says right on it "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private."I'm surprised they don't install pay toilets. Very late departure and very late arrival. This is a nickle and dime airline. They advertise low fares and then they charge for everything else at ridiculous prices. By the time you pay for all the extras you could have ridden on a better airline where you could at least get a cup of water. Their web site is a horror story when you try to check in as you go through endless windows trying to sell "upgrades." Of course, you can get a nominal discount on your baggage if you purchase some membership for $59.99! Who are they kidding? I would never fly on this airline again.I realize things cost money but I don't like to be treated like an open wallet instead of a valued customer."

Cons: "Hidden costs, uncomfortable seats, lost luggage. Overall the worst flighr experience i have had. Will neverbuse again."

Pros: "No frills so don't expect it super long delays x 2 when leaving with luggage issue then waited almost 30 min for luggage at baggage claim"
Cons: "See above - otherwise nice crew Ana fight"

Pros: "The flight was nice...plane was nice...people on flight were nice.."
Cons: "Lost luggage sucks..."
