Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & food was okay"
Cons: "Issues with payment as they said “due to booking through kayak” and it delayed my check-in and again when boarding... and then had to pay again in order to board the plane. They flight was then delayed an additional 1.5hr due to “emergency pieces missing”. They also lost my bag... and I’m traveling across the country with an infant."

Pros: "Food vouchers."
Cons: "Being delayed almost 3 hours and getting in after 1 am."
Pros: "Apparently mechanical problems early in the day put our jet 89 min behind, but all involved worked the magic to achieve only a 60 minute late arrival. Loved the sparkling water (she was kind enough to make mine vegan even : - )."
Cons: "Late start and long taxi and long bus rides. BUT, the conversation with the new found friend was off the chain. I'm cool with the Sonoma means a taxi and bus portion - worth the fare."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Pros: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Coffee Starbucks"
Cons: "Passenger seat 25D was swearing all the time"
Pros: "on time, somewhat"
Cons: "very cramped seats; are my husband and I profiled on airline flights? why are we always placed exactly over the wings or in the rear of the plane, with all the babies? we are senior citizens and flying three to five hours with babies crying all around us is not a pleasant flight. So we up graded to first class on this return flight. Is that the only way to get out of being profiled to sit in the rear of the plane with the crying for three hours?"
Pros: "The flight was thankfully very short!"
Cons: "Crappy service, slow boarding, lack of control of boarding passengers at gate, plane was not as clean as normally expect for this airline."
Pros: "Excelente servicio"
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."

Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, from when we boarded the plane to when we got off. (:"
Cons: "We had to wait over 2 hours delayed our flight claimed it was mechanical reasons then change it saying it was paperwork they need to do so we would be able to make the flight wasted almost 3 hours I was sleeping the crew wakes me up for drinks like really !!bad experience!!!!"
Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"
Pros: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "The 30 min delay in takeoff"

Pros: "Early take-off, friendly staff"
Cons: "everything was cool"
Pros: "The whole air experience is so egregious now, I'm committed to first class and only a few airlines. Just can't do it anymore. I'm not a herd animal and I don't want to do it their way. Period. On Air Alaska it's a clean cabin, they leave on time, they maintain the planes. Amen."
Pros: "Leaving on time, arriving on time."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, too small, even for a small person like me. Person next to you takes up 1/4 of your seat."
Pros: "very little except the price"

Pros: "Staff very warm."
Cons: "Food selection paltry. Vodka from Seattle? Hopefully you will take Virgins food selections and liquor. Alaska can use an overhaul. Also aisle too tight."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a six hour layover in LAX and our luggage still didn't get transferred to our next flight and so our first 3 days in Ecuador was without luggage!"
Pros: "Pilot told us it would be 10 mins really took an hour to taxi and park plane."

Pros: "Great service and amenities!!!"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"
Cons: "Gary was his name. I went up to go to the bathroom, I had heard the announcement prior to that and no one had mentioned anything about seatbelts or staying in my seat. I made sure before I got up. As I get up he approaches me and said "you need to stay in your seat, began to shake his head,"they mentioned it like 5 times", he then said. I really dont appreciate the attitude. It's not what you say it's how you say it. Work on your attitude Gary from JetBlue"
Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"
Pros: "Nice leg room, snacks, drinks."
Cons: "It was freezing! Seat cusion wasn't very comfortable."
Pros: "Fast easy on and hassle free"
Cons: "Internet needs more attention"
Pros: "Everything except the video service was great."
Cons: "The video in front of me no only didn't work, but kept randomly flashing the whole flight, so it was annoying even with eyes closed. Everything else was great.."
Pros: "The airline stewardess was patient and very attentive once I developed a headache. After a couple of non-Aspirin, I was enjoying my vast array of movie selections"
Cons: "Honestly, I can not voice any concerns or problems I had with the flight and crew. Thank you Jesus, God carried us through"
Pros: "my wife was unable to use her ticket, so i had a seat between me and and the next passenger. very comfortable. Plus your plane had more leg room and complimentary television."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Entertainment on tv was available."
Cons: "Why does it takes so long to exit? I guess that’s how it always is."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "The free wifi, snacks and service was awesome."
Cons: "I didn't like the food selection on the menu."
Pros: "The entertainment was what I like most! Many other airlines do not offer this option or when they offer they charge you for it... jet Bleu has good entreteniment and free!"
Cons: "The boarding was not well organised and there was not enough space for hand lugged."
Pros: "Plane was on time and all crew were very courteous."
Cons: "My tv was not working properly and was unable to watch any movies."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 1 and 30 minutes,rookie tow truck driver took him 20 min to dispatch aircraft,Pilots started the engines at the gate to make sure they start making money do to flight plan delayed and mechanical trouble shooting"
Pros: "The entire experience was so simple. No hassle. The flight left on time and arrived on time. Wonderful!"
Cons: "Flight delayed and couldn't land at la guardia. Had to get a taxi to get back to laguardia because it landed inJFK"
Cons: "Unprofessional crew, plane that seemed to have technical problems, entertainment system that was nonoperational, seatbelt sign on entire flight, strange fumes that several passengers complained about."
Pros: "The Popcorners were fresh."
Cons: "Once again, Jet Blue did not let us check-in online because we had purchased tickets through a travel site. And although the partner with Azul, they claimed that they could not check us through to our final destination. Coming home, Azul did this for us without issue. Gates E-9 and E-10 at Fort Lauderdale are a disaster waiting to happen. There is inadequate separation between the two gates to allow efficient boarding. When the flight out of E-9 got delayed, they ended up boarding two flight at the same time. Boarding announcements dd not specify flights and it became a huge snafu. The crew did not try to change it - they plowed ahead ignoring the confusion they were causing. On board, the movies did not run smoothly - one was restarted three times. I have tried to book on Jet Blue firt in the past. My last three experiences are making me rethink this."
Pros: "New plane, legroom, snacks. Really nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Delayed 50 minutes!"
Pros: "Landing home"
Cons: "9 hour delay in terminal. Not enough seats for everyone."
Cons: "JetBlue cancelled my flight and charged me for the luggage. I wrote them and asked for a refund. Still have not heard back. Person who booked flight guaranteed they would not charge me for a flight that they cancelled."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet and thoughtful."
Cons: "Could've had us out the next morning on latam but they kept us there another nite. We missed half of our hunt in Argentina. Worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "Horrible!! Significant delays. Missed my connector due to delay then was delayed again when leaving Florida. Horrible experience and will probably never fly Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Comfort was very good. The level of communication when things changed was very good. Good crew."
Cons: "It was obvious that they would not accommodate all carry on bags, this could have been announced earlier and allow for mutual benefit to both parties. JETBLUE cards benefits are only allowed to American residents as if they are the only one who supports them in travel"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "I liked everything !"
Pros: "Not much. They did put me in a nice hotel for 2 nights when their late arrival caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Food was a bag of chips Flight was over 2 hours late causing me to miss connecting flight to destination. Jet Blue claimed they could not put me on the next flight because it was full and was on another airline. They put me in a hotel for the remainder of the night , all the next day and the following night. I had paid for a 4 day vacation at a resort in Argentina so my 4 day stay became a 2 day stay because Jet Blue would not purchase a seat from a booked passenger on the next flight as I requested. I will never use this airline again and would strongly advise anyone who wants or needs to be at their destination on time avoid them."
Pros: "I love the movie options and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "One crew member was not so friendly. She had a very serious, almost angry, look on her face that made me hesitant to ask her for water. Even when I did ask for water, she seemed annoyed so I never bothered to ask for a cup of ice. I dont expect service with a smile all the time but she appeared miserable. Maybe that's just her face but I'm used to a more pleasant crew at Jet Blue. However, the lady that greeted us on the plane was nice throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."
Pros: "Crew worked hard to help us feel good"
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "Security check was too slow."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, easy boarding."
Cons: "Food service seemed to take a while to get started"
Cons: "People at check-in at Jetblue did not show any interest at all in helping clarify why you did not provide me with three boarding passes I needed to reach my final destination. Unfriendly, poor service and poor communication."
Cons: "The pilot was 2 hours late so i was really late arriving to my destination."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The smooth ride to Kingston"
Pros: "Entertainment and free Wi fi. 1st bag free"
Cons: "Delay of flight, I was told by Jet Blue that booking via Kayak was why my wife and 15 year old son were put in 3 separate middle seats"
Pros: "Great plane. Flight was seamless. Only complaint was that hour delay."
Cons: "Delay in the flight. It was postponed 3 times. Other than that it was good."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "No hassle, no drama, very smooth."
Cons: "The blueberries were rather bland."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "Excellent service, God flight"
Pros: "The one good thing about this unexplained ordeal (the flight was delayed for 5 hours, causing me to miss my connection) was that, after a few hours of hearing nothing (no emails or texts from Delta), I finally saw some options for different flights pop up, so I was able to book a new flight without calling India. Also, I got an exit row seat on my new flight to MSP."
Cons: "They moved our gate about six times and never told us why the flight was delayed. Actually, the biggest annoyance was that Delta told us nothing. The only reason I knew about the delay and gate changes was because of Kayak! I know I am signed up to receive texts and emails from them, but I guess they forgot to notify me."
Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."
Cons: "Seats are in humane"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "El personal abordo muy amable llegamos a tiempo"
Cons: "En el ahereopuerto de guatemala para chekiar las maletas siento q nesesitan mas personal estuve una ora y quince minutos para poder chekiar mi maleta"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "I have broad shoulders and there was a larger gentleman on the window seat. Being in the middle seat made for a very very cramped flight the whole way. Lots of skin to skin arm contact for much of the flight. There was no way to avoid it."
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "The crew did a great job of dealing with delays beyond their control and made sure we - and our luggage - made a connecting flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked the boarding process."
Cons: "Bigger seats are more helpful."
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down. Worst experience ever with Delta."
Pros: "Nothing I can think"
Cons: "The seats selection"
Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "All I need to say."
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. On time efficient boarding. Security in SEA-TAC less than 5 min. Different snacks both flights. Prompt service. On time. Power sources at seats worked."
Cons: "Airport gate area in LAX filthy. No seats. Garbage cans overflowing. Bathrooms smelled like New Orleans street on a Sunday morning. Entertainment system broken."
Pros: "The crew was very kind & accomodating. There were plenty of great current TV shows & movies. The seats were pretty comfortable, above average. I loved that they had roasted salted almonds as one of the 5 snack options."
Cons: "I had earbuds but the little girl next to me did not. I loaned her a pair of mine but I expected the flight attendants to offer them but they didn't."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Cons: "Boarding area; boarding agent; boarding staffing; seating (comfort); flt. attendants: That's all... aww"
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "My non-reclining first class seat was a disappointment on this long flight. The flight was full, so there was no re-seating option."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."
Cons: "Everything ABOUT THIS AIRLINE SUCKS.. the staff was the worst... no one knew the correct information and I suffered from that... my flight was delayed and a crew member decided that she wanted me to miss my flight... I had the worst experience with this airline... it was my first time traveling with u guys and it was so terrible that I would never travel again with u guys.... I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"
Pros: "New planes were more comfortable and I love the entertainment being free and with own devices"
Cons: "Basic economy should not be an option for mileage plus members"
Cons: "Flight delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "That my flight got delayed in Denver over an hour and I missed my flight from LA to BJX because of that. I was suppose to land in BJX At 6am on Friday April 28th for a family emergency and now my next flight isn't till 1pm! This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Never in my life will I ever fly with united again. My plans got ruined, I was forced to sleep on the cold dirty floor of LAX. This cost me a lot of time and money, and I am upset about it. I will tell all my peers about this horrible experience and encourage them to never fly with united ever again. I do expect some sort of compensation over this horrible experience."

Pros: "It was a good flight and for a great prize"
Pros: "No big incident, was offered a small bag of pretzels, complimentary."
Cons: "Seats have uncomfortably small spacing."
Pros: "United is very reputable airline with great pilots and safety record. Prior to leaving for Mexico, the plane was examined amd found a 'mechanical issue'. All of the passengers were immediately switched to a different airplane. The safety of the airline and the pocedures used to ensure the craft was 100% was very comforting."
Cons: "I was bothered by the fee to check in 1 bag and the lack of food and ebtertainment upon the return flight from Mexico to Los Angeles. During the entire 4 hour flight, passengers were offered a bag of chips and nothing else, not even for purchase. Thus particular plane didn't have any screen for entertainment. I was most bothered by the baggage fee of $50 ($25 each way ) because the ticket price doesnt reflect an airline that charges for necessary things."
Pros: "Our seats weren't changed on us, as it was going to Florida"
Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"

Cons: "The flight being delayed and comfort"
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "Enough space."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending ur color. Specially at Heathrow. Ask personal question loudly."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Cons: "The most unpleasant crew we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their customer treatment training."
Pros: "That i got home safely."
Cons: "4 5 Hour delays accompanied by apologies with a $10 expired food vouchers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 2 hours. Then halfway through the boarding process there was a glitch in the system and I believe that they lost the seat reservations, which delayed us even further."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave stellar service, especially the ones from Hawaii !!! I wasn't feeling very well and they noticed and checked up on me and made sure I was hydrated and got something to make me feel better. (I was so grateful to have a mom~type take care of me, on a long flight.) Thank You!!!"
Cons: "The lack of space - in the isles AND in between the seats in front of us. Anytime the person in front of me wanted to recline their seat, it made it hard for me to even get out and go to the bathroom. That was not pleasant."
Pros: "Brought us safe to Hawaii and back home home."
Cons: "My brother accidentally left his passport, ring and chain inside the plain which was very expensive and he called after he noticed he didn't have it with him. He left it inside of the pocket holder of the seat on the plain where the magazine are. He called and was told nothing was there. On our way back home, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours behinds. At no moment did the co pilot excused himself nor did he apologized for the the delay. We deserved at least a free meal or some kind of compensation. Instead, the pilot and flight attendants just told us to rich it because we had to leave to L.A! We (8) family members came and this includes an elderly person (my mother who has been fighting cancer for about 2 years, along with diabetes) came to see her grandaughter get married. Now they were rushing her as well? Uncalled for. Now my other brother and his family which was a party of 10 on another flight, also flew to Hawaii. Now that alone tells you how much money was spent. The stay in Hawaii was amazing! We would visit again but the way we were treated on this airline, I don't think we would fly again and choose this airline. To be honest, not even recommend it. I'm ashamed to let others know such as friends and co workers know of this airline's service. To top it off one flight attendant was very rude! She saw us when she handed the other passengers pretzels and skipped my mother, my sister and I. I asked her nicely if we may have some and told her she had skipped us. She said, "I did?" Came back with 6 bags of thenm and was like, "Here!" Like shoving them to me. I felt humiliated! I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarrass her. But it was extremely rude!!! I read some reviews and I guess it's normal on your end to be the way you treat your customers. We even asked before abording from Hawaii to L.A, what can you do to make up for all this and we were told, "nothing could". So ashamed."
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient boarding"
Cons: "Not much that could be helped. Short flight, very turbulent on takeoff and landing. Getting stuck in front of a kid who kept dropping her tray table open and slamming it shut wasn't fun, but I know United isn't responsible for someone else's sucky parenting. And when did the leg room shrink???"
Pros: "Gate personnel were great."
Pros: "I liked the new movies. Lots of movie selections. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy at times, and flight was also delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."
Pros: "It's was fine no issues"
Cons: "Too close of a connection flight."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed and I was never told the reason.. There was no enough of the beverage I wanted to be given just one can of juice.."
Cons: "Internet didn't work on the plane"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled from LAX to SD."
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "I felt like i was on a Spirit airlines flight. Not sure if it was a new plane but couldnt believe how cramped the seats were.. no leg room and i could nt even turn the page on my magazine without hitting the seat in front of me"
Pros: "I had my own row"
Cons: "The fight left on time for once"
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Cons: "Flight delay, gate changes"
Cons: "Flight landed in Florida. Plane stayed parked for over 20 minutes making me miss my connecting flight, no accomadtions or compensations for this. Rude agents, cheap ticket but everything else is very expensive. Never even heard of paying for a carry on before this airline."
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "I HATE being nickeled-and-dimed to death. Having to pay for a carry-on on top of my checked luggage. In the end, Spirit Airlines is no cheaper than anyone else. If there had been ANY other direct flight available, I would have taken it. I HATE having LITERALLY no leg room - my knees were touching the seat in front of me. And I'm short. I HATE having almost no tray table - impossible to set down a drink or do anything. All in all, I will do everything in my power to never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Rude staff and waiting 1 HOUR to exit the plane."
Cons: "The check in process, and long delays. Not good at all!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled"
Cons: "5hrs to get to LA and nothing free to eat and to drink. that so stupid. and paid to much for your carry on"
Pros: "We arrived early at our destination"
Cons: "How small the airline seats were. And one of the crew members was not nice."
Cons: "Connecting flight delayed 2 hours. Narrow seats and do not recline. Will not fly again."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Smiling. About what, I have no idea."
Cons: "They charge you for every little thing. The seats do not recline not even one degree. To fly 5 hours to LA at a 90 degree angle without even a glass of water.... I will never fly this airline again. Ever!!!"
Pros: "I understand your concept of saving fuel etc and only charging passengers with luggage but atleast make the seats comfortable. It has to be the worst flight that I have taken EVER. I am 5'.8" 180lbs and couldn't sit straight without my knees banging against the seat infront of me. The seat would not recline and was miserable for 6hrs."
Pros: "did get me home"
Cons: "The female stewardess with the shaved head talked load the entire flight at the back of the plane. Flight was an hour delayed."
Pros: "The plane seemed clean and the people very nice."
Cons: "Once I accepted the idea it was only a backpack size personal belongings which I had and no free snacks which I didn't need. I was fine. I liked the direct flight."
Pros: "Not only that there were no snacks, but I had to purchase water. On the flight back I was freezing and was told very rudely by flight attendant that they have no blankets and that I should buy one very cheaply from the airport. Extremely rude and vulgar attendant by the name of Tina, I think. It was the worst airline I have come across."
Cons: "Seats were terrible and no leg room. Most uncomfortable flight I ever had. No entertainment for a six hour flight is rediculous."
Cons: "While checking in baggage the employee where really rude and not very helpful when it came to solving certain problems"
Pros: "Staff was nice and flight went smoothly"
Cons: "$55 for a carry on bag; very small seats"
Cons: "Everything about this airline is the worst. At the end of the day I tried to save some money but still ended up spending more since there is no carry ons allowed unless you pay $55 dollars each way so making my flight an extra $110 dollars which is the average cost of any airline that is far much better than this one. Strongly recommend people to stay away!"
Cons: "It's a total mess! The Check-In counter sevice was the worst we ever had. We check in two hours before the departure, but we almost couldn't catch the flight. Quite few people had the same situation as us."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The plane did not crash or explode."
Cons: "Everything except the plane not crashing or exploding"
Pros: "Got me home"
Cons: "$100+ fee for one checked bag. Over hour delay sitting in plane."
Pros: "What I liked most was I had smooth sailing from booking to luggage pick up to seeing my miles posted in my account! Thank Spirit for soothing & lifting my spirit"
Cons: "Its sad to think that lugage would be $50.00 and you can't sleep on a 5 hour flight because the seats don't recline."
Cons: "My seat was broken, and thus very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I got home and pretty much on time. The staff on the plane were friendly."
Cons: "Check in on mobile was really difficult. Was forced to sign up for their mailing list. Then got into a loop and had to start over. Baggage fees are exorbitant so I signed up for their discount offer which cost $50 and was supposed to give me a discount on my bags. Discount didn't happen and I had to pay full price anyway. Their weight allowance is 10 pounds less than other airlines so I had to transfer a bunch of stuff to my carry-on. Sneaky fees and nickel and diming are such shoddy business practices. I Will not fly Spirit again if I can at all avoid it. Short-term gain results in long-term loss for Spirit given I am a very frequent traveler."
Cons: "Where do I start? This may be the most "affordable" flight you can find on the market but they make up for that. Be sure to print your own boarding pass because that's a $10 charge if you don't. If your luggage is even one lb over the weight, expect to pay $95. Need water on the flight? Pay up. AirMall magazine? Nope. Reclining chairs? Laughable. The staff's affect is flat and cold. Don't bother trying to reason with them, they could care less (especially"Karen"). If I could give zero stars on this review, I wouldn't hesitate. I wouldn't wish my experience with Spirit on anyone. I'd rather forget about it all and move on with my life but people have the right to know."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is a rip off and I will never use them again. They charge non refundable carry on bag fees then tell you after you have purchased you are allowed one personal item for free as long as its fits into the "carry on" metal display. There is no difference between a carry on bag and a personal item. They are using it to dupe you into buying a carry on bag fee that you do not need."
Pros: "What I liked is that it was a fast flight trip."
Cons: "I dislike that just about everyone from the check in stand in the FLL airport we're all rude and extremely disorganized. There was this older man who looked like he had no idea what he was doing just kept confusing and making people aggregated, he kept making people go back and forth multiple times. I would train them to be more organized. His words were "I'm not always right, but I know what I'm doing""
Pros: "Flights relatively on time"
Cons: "upcharge for EVERYTHING (they charge for WATER, printing boarding pass, and carry-ons) unfriendly staff buggy website"
Cons: "I didn't like anything about this airline"
Cons: "Everything about this airline is bad. They rope you in by thinking you're getting economical tickets and then rip you off by charging $55 for each pice of luggage, INCLUDING CARRY - ON!!! The seats are the most uncomfortable and tight, there is no recline. I felt like cargo.. Every beverage and snack costs money, they even charge for Water! They pack people in like a herd. It TERRIBLE. Will never fly this airline again and will tell my friends and family not to."
Pros: "Unfortunately, I was not aware of Spirits business model or I would have been better prepared - the fairly well priced flight I got for my child and I were offset by having to pay OVER $100 for 2 CARRY on bags (that's right... Not checked but CARRY ON SIZED BAGS!! Low number of employees had lines everywhere and chaotic check in do to majority surprised by bag fees! Seats do not recline - no entertainment screens very "low budget". The advertising campaign is cute and makes the "no frills" look hip, but very tough cross country flight for us."
Pros: "The planes were new aND in good shape"
Cons: "The lines to check baggage were so long. The seats on flight do not recline and are super squished. No tvs, no complimentary food, and all luggage costs money to take. Would be okay for a really short flight."
Pros: "I have taken Spirit on different ocassion and every time I do it's a disappointing ride."
Cons: "I had to purchase my tickets on different confirmations and they would not accommodate my sitting next to my children. They sat 5F & 5E and my ticket was 27 all the way in the back. I tried to request to upgrade but they were not helpful to move me up anywhere closer to my 2 kids. It was very disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "The price was good compared to other options."
Cons: "NO SPACE!!! My knees touched chair in front of me and I'm only 5'11". Chairs don't recline. Jammed in like a sardine in a can. Most uncomfortable cross country flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Who charges for even carry-on baggage???? No real food on the menu, you can't get anything but snacks no matter what you pay. Seats are uncomfortable etc. I didn't really enjoy it at all..."
Pros: "Cheap ticket price"
Cons: "No TVs on a 5.5 hour flight to LA, no wifi, seats do not recline, and you have to pay $55 for a carry on"
Cons: "You don't tell customer that they need to pay for baggage even a carry on cost additional 55.00 plus if you want to sit next to your pass angers you travel with its additional chargers to pick your seats .. Add that when booking the flights"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Whole experience"
Pros: "The price to upgrade to a larger seat was reasonable but someone who randomly choose there seat for 10$ sat next to me."
Cons: "The lines to check a bag moved extremely slow. The price to check a bag was extremely high. And boarding the airplane was very disorganized and the flights attendants did not do much to keep the line moving."
Pros: "Ticket ended up being 100$ more"
Cons: "You had to pay for everything. I was coughing and really needed water and it was 6$ Trip was delayed over an hour with multiple gate changes and then once on the plane took forever to take off. Seats were horrible very small and very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats were too small and crowded. Unable to use phone. No snacks. Confusion with printing boarding passes. Expensive to check a small duffel/sports bag. Security check was violating!"
Cons: "All the seats DO NOT recline. They charge for everything including water..$3. Over $100 to bring my small carry on. I hate this airline. Have you ever been on a flight where seats don't recline??? Insane."
Pros: "Crew, boarding,"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable No blankets or pillows or movies"
Pros: "I like how nice the staff was and entertaining."
Cons: "The seat are a little small..."
