Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that I didn’t have a window on the row I was on"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I always enjoy my flights on Delta the staff members are always pleasant and helpful, not to mention a smooth flight. :)"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly boarding etc."
Cons: "Because of packed flight many of us had to check our luggage. Not horrible, but slightly annoying. As well as taking a long time to de-plane."
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Pros: "I had a good flight and the Captain kept us informed of our flight delay in departing. S"
Cons: "A male flight attendant is showing me where in the bin to put my carry on and didn't even make an attempt to help me even though I'm an older woman. Sometimes the passengers are more helpful."
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Affordable and on time"
Cons: "Bizarre cabin crew announcements and chaotic boarding"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, crew very helpful, punctuality...."
Cons: "Space to carry-on"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."

Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The food literally gave me food poisoning"
Pros: "the entertainment and ease"
Cons: "the noise"
Pros: "The process to go through security and boarding was smooth and efficient"
Pros: "Flow as smooth , attendants were good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and then we sat about an hour on board waiting to get de-iced. Ended up over 1 1/2 hours late."
Cons: "2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself). Parked at far end of the airport so 15+ mins walk to arrivals. All around one of the worst flight experiences I’ve had in years!"
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food. All hood. Thanks."
Pros: "The flight was brief."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor landing, insufficient information as to how to get to the flight with my luggage. I couldn’t find my luggage at the other end."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight I am greatly indisposed as the hot weather requires frequent change of clothes."
Cons: "No chance to change or reschedule flight. No understanding with a bit of compassion the situation."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "not enough drinks offered during 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Meals provided Plane was early quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "No personal tvs Plane was old and falling apart in some places (e.g. arm rests) Staff wasn't on the ball (friend ordered vegetarian meal option but was given chicken, asked for water and staff ended up forgetting)"
Cons: "Food was misrepresented in the menu to what was served. Staff were not friendly or accommodating. There was no individual air flow or total cabin air flow."
Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "Loved the updates on my flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was efficient, flight crew were attentive, journey was shorter than scheduled."
Cons: "Checkin process flawed (very rude lady who would not let our son check in via kids club). Food was poor (the salad was not just cold, it was frozen solid), seating was uncomfortable (new thin seats with little or no comfort for a transatlantic flight)."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Pros: "There are no leg room at all for tall people."
Cons: "Too small"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Delays Antiquated electronics use procedures Slow onboard service on a red-eye flight"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The Direct Flight was pretty nice. Don't have to worry about losing your luggage."
Cons: "Where do i start? The seats are so narrow! My husband sat near the window where he ended up putting up the arm rest and sharing my seat with me. And of course the man next to me took just as much space so here I am in the middle squished between 2 big men, extremely uncomfortable for 8 straight hours. Obviously couldnot sleep due to the lack of space. They also didn't provide tv on any of the seats! What were we supposed to do for 8 hour? MISERABLE FLIGHT TO AND FROM AMSTERDAM!!!!!! NEVER AGAIN. THE crew was snobby to so don't bother asking for anything extra. You'll get all attitude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours. They didn't offer hotel rooms so we had to sleep on the floor of the airport (hundreds of passengers, including elderly and children). No communication. One person managing multiple delays, so rarely anyone at the desk to answer questions. Appalling."
Pros: "I liked the legroom even though we had a regular seat. We sat 2x2 seating and were very pleased. Some staff were nice. The price was a good deal. So it boils down to having mediocre for a bargain or nicer accommodations for more pricey fares. My husband thought it was very good though."
Cons: "Food was awful. Service for food and drinks took way too long. Why give food 20 minutes before you are giving a beverage? I have always had drink service prior to food. I did not understand this. Breakfast was a piece of "carrot cake" that looked like was picked up from the local jail in Toronto. Really my only complaint. Flight was bumby but not anyone's fault other than Mother Nature. Water in bathroom stopped working halfway through flight. Seats were not comfy as other airlines. My butt got numb somewhere around Greenland."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as Option Plus board right after first class. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating: the worst I have experienced. Terrible in-flight entertainment system; poor video quality; everybody views the same movie as it was in the 80s unless you think to bring your own tablet. Barely passable food (warm sandwich) and breakfast consisted of a slice of cake."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was well organised."
Cons: "We boarded in time to fly at 10:05pm, however 7 passengers didn't turn up until almost 11pm. We weren't offered any snacks or drinks whilst waiting. Our 7 year old son spent most of this time desperate for the toilet but we weren't allowed. We all just wanted to go to sleep after a long day, I wanted to get to sleep because I faced 4 hours drive home after landing in London. We were served food and drinks at around midnight... I was asleep and was woken by a stewardess shouting "Would you like a drink" (not sure if she was speaking to me - but to be honest on a night flight I expected the aircrew to be a little more tactful). The cabin lights were eventually dimmed at about 1:30 for perhaps a couple of hours, when they were turned back on and we were served a slice of carrot cake for breakfast. The whole trip felt very bizarre, the opposite of the outbound trip where everything felt very special. After landing we retrieved our luggage only to find our cases were badly damaged, we've traveled with the same cases for the last five weeks during which time they have survived without a scratch."
Cons: "No complaints about anything at all"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Cons: "The cabin was blazing hot and stuffy for the whole trip. The cabin crew for the most part struggled with faking the whole "nice and pleasant" part of their job. Really made you feel like you inconvenienced them if you ask them a question..... I only asked one, "what are the food options?" I didn't have a measuring tap to prove it, but the seats definitely felt tighter than most aircraft, and were very uncomfortable. I never have difficulty sleeping on a flight, even a Ryanair flight, but I along with half the cabin could not get comfortable enough to nod off on this flight. It was reassuring that I wasn't being overly picky when I saw half the cabin going through the same discomfort as me. Food was even worse than the usually bowel clogging garbage that you usually get elsewhere. All in all, if you are saving $400-500 flying with these guys might be worth the trip for you......do not penny pince and fly with them if the are $200 cheaper, absolutely not worth it. As for me I travel too much, and life is too short to have to put myself through that again."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Below average company"
Cons: "I was stuck in another city because a connecting flight was canceled so I never got on my flight to Rome. I didn't get a refund or credit or anything for my flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was so bad, that it is hard to think of anything positive.....oh, one thing. The beer they originally served me was room temperature and the kind stewardess went out of her way to get me a cold one."
Cons: "First off there was a 3 hour delay in the terminal at YYZ. Once on board, we sat at the gate for another hour (4 hour delay in total). Finally worst of all, since they are a "discount" airline, they fit in 9 seats per row as opposed to the usual 8 in an airbus 330, and I am sure more rows as well. (3x3x3 vs 2x4x2) I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and I had an aisle seat! The guy next to me was an elderly, portly Portuguese man, and because the seats are so narrow, he was spilling over into my seat (no fault of his own). Neither of us could nap And the fare was not particularly cheap at $580 one way. It was truly horrible. I arrived exhausted and am still recovering from jet lag"
Cons: "The plane was hot due to an AC issue that delayed the flight for almost two hours, and then continued to be hot throughout the duration of the flight. The crew was rude and not very accommodating. The in-flight entertainment and food service was not up to date and sub-par. There is little that could motivate me to fly Air Transat again."
Cons: "My bag was left back And I never got it!!! Horrible experience. I'm hoping to get it back tomorrow!"
Cons: "Wish we knew to download the app before the flight to benefit from streaming movies"
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Very budget food"
Cons: "We were an hour late boarding the flights. The chairs were also very uncomfortable and did not recline much; they were also so narrow."
Cons: "Food was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing wish I had other options at the time of booking to get to Montreal form Toronto."
Cons: "After waiting 6 hours for our connecting flight my husband and daughter had to witness the check in lady having a heated argument of how she had announced seating in both French and English when she did not announce it in English. Transat was terribly tardy on their check in so people was just increasing in number and the check in crew did nothing to assist with let folks know who was to board the plan first. It was just a mess, it really stressed out my daughter this was her first international flight and wished she had a more positive experience."
Staff nice and friendly, seats were comfortable
7 hour delay. Maintenance issue Then Weather Then pilots had exhausted their flight time Then had to wait for new pilots Then no food
Too many late departures, but the most decent AC flight in ages
Pros: "Extremely late-no specific reason-AC lounge closed at 9 so we were asked to leave-boarding area was so packed no where to sit so sat on “rails”. After 3 hrs delay u expect something like some peanuts to compensate-but no-they are as bad as any other NA airline if not worse-awful service, all they wanted cared after giving some soda or water is to Collect the garbage-plane was not cleaned properly. Dirty paper and cups in pockets. Wish i did not have to fly AC"
Pros: "Better staff than normally, which was both surprising and pleasant. Flight made it on time for the changeover in Zurich, which is very important."
Cons: "Extra charge for luggage - it showed up in the itinerary only after everything has been paid for. And even the paid suitcase allowed 23 kg only. It has been just over TEN years ago that you had two suitcases at 32 kg each included in price! Does the airline seriously believe that you can travel around the world with just a swim trunk in your pocket? This policy is an insult to any world traveller. We do not all go into an all-inclusive resort! The only drink offered during the flight was plain water, again a step down from before where they also offered others, e.g. orange juice. Seating - now that big persons have the right for two seats for the price of one, when will the same rational apply to tall people?"
Pros: "Smooth and fast very clean and attentive crew"
Cons: "I have flown Air Canada many times, and have never taken off on time. Most flights I have been on, were 30 -60 minutes late. Cabin service is usually minimal, lackadaisical, and indifferent. I would only fly Air Canada again as a last resort"
Pros: "They got me home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3 times with no explanation. The food in the gate was trash . After boarding we waited on board for over a hour before take off , during which time someone was duct taping the inside of the plane together and I sat on a broken seat . The single flight attendant refused to take trash from people who didn’t finish their beverage . While the plane was reversing there was a huge bang and the plane shook as if we hit something . I observed gate agent repeatedly tell customers that she couldn’t help them find out if their flight was delayed and to just look at the computer board ."
Cons: "Air Canada Check In staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. My flight was at 7pm and I arrived at 6:10pm because I got stuck in traffic. I had already checked in online, all I needed was to get my baggage tags and drop my bag off. Instead of telling me where to print out my tag, they made me stand in line to talk to the check in staff at the counter. By the time I got to the counter, it was 7:40 and there was zero chance of my bag being checked in for this flight with the staff showing me attitude. When I told him that all I was here before the drop-off time and all I wanted were tags and that his other staff just told me to line up without helping, he just said "you can buy another ticket for the next flight or leave your bag here and pick it up when you return from your trip." Honestly, the worst customer experience I have ever had!"
Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure."
Pros: "The crew at the airport and on the plane were excellent. We were on a family holiday with young ones and the crew really took care of our needs. They were extremely courteous and attentive."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options could be more current. We found the options limited... it was a good thing that the flight was short."
Pros: "We got in on time and that matters most on an evening flight."
Cons: "The plane was freezing"
Cons: "Late departure- even with snow issues have not had similar problems with WestJet"
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Because I miss my flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Airplane was old, uncomfortable and no screens"
Pros: "Their sympathy for our atrocious wait was, free pop and water, and some pretzels. $30 meal vouchers at the limited options gate area, which could only be used towards a meal (really? no where else?). Here's a were sorry email and a discount on your next flight with us. I have yet to see how much the significant cost for that discount but my expectations of Air Canada are very low."
Cons: "That delay was horrendous, I spent 10 hours at an airport. I woke up so god damn early to get there because of news spreading the worries of people waiting at customs immigration to the U.S. it only took us 40min to get through and the flight delay notice was given an hour and a half before departure. We couldn't even sleep on any benches because they were all designed for individuals to sit. It wasn't until our gate location moved to the end of that area was there any carpeted floor space to sleep on. On the flight, economy seating was very tight with limited leg room, and best of all our seats had no window, literally every other row in our section had a window. Air Canada handled this stressful event very poorly, once they figured out bringing a new air craft hours later, and everyone moved to the new gate area, all the attendants had left from their gate post until 40min before the flight which was hours later."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Friendly and professional crew."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Wasn't able to recline seat because the passager behind complained that the seat was in her face."
Pros: "Direct to Toronto"
Cons: "Too many to list"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"
Cons: "Bumped off a direct flight from Toronto to Fort lauderdale with 6 other people. We all booked back in february. They are overbooking 5 to 10 percent now and kicking off the people who paid the least. There is no advantage to booking early only to be bumped. At the gate the AC employee said we would be credited 3 to 4 hundred dollars but we had to run to the customer service desk and then hop on an AC flight to Houston connecting with United Airlines to Fort Lauderdale. At the customer service desk a herd of people waited anxiously to be re booked and compensated. When they started handing out notice that they would send us 200 in the mail there was an uproar that fell on deaf ears. We then ran to get on the houston flight only to find out that flight was overbooked as well. We had to wait to see if they had any no shows. Fortunately I was able to stay on the plane. Upon arriving in Houston we were quickly ran to the United airline gate only to find out that Air Canada had dropped the ball again. We were not booked on the flight. Five of us had no seats booked , while I was booked to depart on a morning flight the next day with no accomodations arranged? Fortunately for us United Airlines picked up the ball and some how got us on the plane to Fort Lauderdale. Upon arriving around 1140pm! should have arrived at 5:20pm direct! we quickly ran to the AC terminal to get our luggage that was originally checked on the first flight. We were told that it would be there. AC employees with no concern at all told us it's not here and it would have been on the united flight that we just arrived on. After I explained that we werent even scheduled to be on the United flight by air canada, so there's no way it made it onto the plane. They looked at us like we were idiots, closed thier office doors and walked away. We ran back to the other terminal( shuttle buses stop at 11pm in Fort Lauderdale?) only to find no luggage again. Fortunately United picks up the ball again and traces our luggage back to Toronto, AC pulled it and left it sitting there. Because of Air Canada's inept employees I missed my rental car reservation and had to buy new clothes for the wedding the next day. They said they'd have the luggage to me by 11 am , it arrived at 11:30 pm the next day. Save yourself the hassel, fly any other airline other then the iconic continually bailed out by the federal goverment airline. If you know, no matter how bad your company and service is ,you will always be bailed out would you work hard? Probably not, hence the atrocious attitude and poor performance of this dead horse airline."
Pros: "Comfort of seats Crew's teamwork"
Cons: "It would be great if you could accept debit cards on board for purchases."
Pros: "The boarding process"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, no entertainment except dated material, crowded, overhead luggage does not fit a 20in bag except sideways, very inefficient use of space. Given the choice a rouge flight would be my last choice."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "No internet, entertainment app was completely dysfunctional, No free snacks, crew was slow to serve, flight home was very bumpy. I was glad to get off the plane."
Pros: "There are thousands of national brands that are kosher. It's not difficult to find products that all passengers can enjoy."
Pros: "Where rude also unable to hear safety announcemts"
Cons: "TO - Pearson AIRPORT horrid CUSTOMS layout- all automation with little assistance and little signage what to do... when 300+ people need it simultaneously it is a mess. NO warnings if/when to collect luggage or not- so waste time at baggage carosel when it is not coming out between flights. Too few Attendants sending connections on wild walk through long concourses to undefined line ups. Customs surely...not humored at all. Why the second time 45 mins cattle line up for security pass through before customs?? IN TRANSIT STILL??!! Not having proper crew ready to take over flight when delays make first crew sign off...waited on plane with no service for 1.5 hrs no water or food - should have disembarked to terminal?? Babies kids had 5 hrs onboard with no distractions or food. YIKES!! In the AIRPORT lack of AIR Canada personnel attending gateways! EMPTY until 20 mins before flights. Customer Service Desks somewhat helpful...could do more form their stations."
Cons: "Everything. Crowded. Cramped. The curtain between First Class and Economy was archaic and insulting. On my departure flight, I had the unfortunate row that divided the elite from the peasants. IIt enabled me to see how the staff fawned over the Elite while we waited for minimal attention."
Cons: "I was assigned a seat right at the back when I booked I selected a mid seat and did not get it."
Cons: "The crew waited so long to start selling food. Then, by the time the cart got to where I was sitting (only halfway back) they were already sold out of the two things I wanted to buy. The tea they served was the dregs from the bottom of the kettle, nasty and bitter. There was no "entertainment," except a crew member renting out a couple of ipads that connected to the wifi. The luggage compartments are oddly shaped so that you can only put your luggage in the long way. It a misuse of space. A lot of people had a hard time finding any place to put their bags. During takeoff, one of the luggage compartments opened up twice."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. My son got to say hello to the pilot as we boarded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there were some vegetarian options for food on the plane. Even a cheese and tomato sandwich would. D good."
Pros: "1/2 hour late in departing. 2 1/2 hours. Sitting on Tarmac on flight to Toronto. Too crowded on plane"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, free WiFi on board, movies to watch, stewards and stewardesses on board were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "I was originally flying WestJet, and the 7:05 AM flight I booked was cancelled. I hopped online and booked the 8:10 AM flight via Air Canada back to Boston. First, the flight was oversold, so only AFTER I was able to check my bag did I learn that I was flying stand-by. Completely nerve wracking. If I had known in advance I would have booked with another airline. I was able to get on the flight thanks to some volunteers who gave up their seats on the 8:10 AM flight for the next flight out (10:10 AM) in return for some monetary compensation. I arrived in Boston, and after waiting for 45 minutes, I learned my bag was put on the 10:10 AM flight rather than the 10:10 AM flight, but only after dealing with a snappy and disrespectful check-in attendant that seemed to not believe me that my bags indeed did not arrive. The office for baggage services for Air Canada was vacant and locked next to the carousel. Myself and a couple of other travelers, upon getting to the check-in counter and explaining the situation mistakenly lumped us all together and said "okay so you're all traveling together and your bags need to go the same place". Me: "No, that's incorrect, we are not related or traveling together, we just all have the same issue--none of our bags have arrived". Other Air Canada representative, who up to this point had not been involved in the exchange: "She didn't ask you if you were related, she asked you if your bags were lost" and then proceeded to roll her eyes and walk away from the counter. I suppose she misinterpreted my concern for rudeness and felt the need to put me in my place. Granted, my early morning flight cancellation and the stress associated with flying standby had nothing to do with them, but the attitude I was given as a concerned traveler whose bag was potentially lost was completely unwarranted. Compounded with the frustration of the entire morning I cannot describe how infuriating this exchange added up to being. I was told my bag would be delivered to my home by 4 PM that day. No bag. Got a phone call at 7 PM - they'd be there in the next hour. 10:00 PM and going to bed: No bag. I gave up and prepared to make a claim in the morning. 8:30 AM Sunday morning - my bag is sitting on my front porch wrapped in a trash bag. What a fiasco."
Pros: "One person assisting passengers whose flights had been canceled was gracious and skillful."
Cons: "My flight, 370 was canceled. Initially, one of the AC staff at customer service was overwhelmed and impatient. The next flight was delayed by about seven hours. My baggage didn't arrive in Toronto. I found it extremely difficult to learn where the baggage could be, spent hours on hold with Air Canada and then Dynamex, and waited four days to receive my bag. I was with about 100 people at a summer camp. The staff created a funny skit about AC, Dynamex (sp?) and the endless "your call is important to us" tape recording. I understand that flight plans must be canceled and changed due to weather, but AC relies too heavily on automated "service.""
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "Flight got delayed over 1 hr"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "The crew needs to learn how to effectively execute the meal/drink service. It takes entirely too long. Also, on an international Flight, over three hours, you don't provide a snack!? And the small cup of soda we get takes over an hour for some people to get. The seats are entirely too close. I'm 5'9 and my knees were digging into the seat in front of me. Then the guy in front of me reclined and I had absolutely no room. I had to turn to the side. We didn't board until around the time we were supposed to depart. We were over a hour behind schedule. They held the plane to get a passenger's bag off because he was stuck in customs. Unless it's a funeral I need to get to, I'm not flying Air Canada again."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was enjoyable was able to stream music and shows on my phone which helped the time fly by. Comfortable flight relatively smooth and comfy seats."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a blanket or pillow? That's something I've never heard of. Crew was inattentive as I asked for someone to come by and collect my trash but no one ever came."
Pros: "New Aircraft"
Cons: "No meal service - Bought RB sand was dry - Luggage did not make transfer - Enternament on personally owned I pad only"
Cons: "Seating for Econamy patron flyers has become disgustingly so close together that knees of person behind me kept jabbing me in my back. When person in front tilted his seat back I really felt cramped and felt like a sardine. I am not a tall person. I do have short legs. Maybe airlines should hereafter ban tilting the seats back."
Pros: "The service ,the courtesy, and respect. And the flight was smooth. Great crew! Thank you Barbara Caridad Gonzalez"
Cons: "I could not put my foot up on anything. I had tendon problem. No movie ahhh was boredd. Food was not that great but fine I did have window part but rather not get away from the wing. I don lIke the wING section. . Thank you"
Cons: "My first flight had free snacks and movies to watch yet it was only an hour in the air. This flight was much longer with no movies and having to pay for snacks. Seems a tad backwards."
Pros: "Great wifi ap entertainment feature"
Cons: "Being delayed twice- once for late passengers then for door problems"
Pros: "The ground staff were vl.ery helpfull"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable that I have sat in in my 60 years of flying. It was a nearly full plane and they ran out of some of the breakfast food by rhe third row was being served. I would not fly on Air Canada Rough again."
Cons: "Rouge was the problem here. Unlike regular Air Canada flights, the seats are extra cramped and there are no seat-back TVs or power outlets. (Also, the crew didn't seem to include any French speakers - weird for Air Canada.) I preferenced AC for this flight. Next time I would avoid them if it's Rouge."
Pros: "We left a little late but the pilots made up for their lost time. We left around 8:40 and we still arrived early than the expected flight time"
Cons: "I thought the flight attendants could have been a little bit more polite when the spoke to guests.you can tell they we trying to make the boarding a speedy process, but their responses to passenger ended being rushed and short."
Pros: "Lack of services in Air Canada is disappointing. I asked for an iPad, which, i was asking to rent to watch a movie and no one got back to me."
Pros: "This was the first time traveling to Canada. Everything went so smooth. I will definitely be using Air Canada again!"
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
Pros: "They eventually got us there. staff were friendly."
Cons: "Online check-in - DID NOT WORK. Awaited the email, but never came. At the airport - kiosk didn't work. Got an attendant - flight had started boarding 5-10m before getting the agent / *their* policy is no boarding passes after that -- even though hours earlier the online check-in was done. They charged for the baggage, so parts took. Reality seems to be that flight was oversold. Upon rebook at next flight - that one was delayed due to awaiting inbound flight attendant. They know this stuff hours ahead of time, but never say."
Pros: "I don't like nothing !!!!"
Cons: "1. First time I use them ... and first time I use kayak .. and it will be the last time . 2. Spirit got worse customer service. 3 the want to charge extras for every little thing . 4. The plain are terrible. 5. The food terrible. 6. Worse experience with the flight attendance ( they don't care about people ) 7 . The coming back flight... ( UNFORTUALLY MY FATHER GOT A HEART ATTACK SO I TRY YO CHANGE THE FLIGHT WITHOUT ANY EXTRA CHARGES ... AND AFTER I SENT THEM ALL THE MEDICAL PROVES AND RECORDS SHOWING THAT MY DAD HAD A HEART ATTACK... AND THAT I HAD TO POUSPONE THR DATE ... THEY DIDNT CARE AND THEY DIDNT APPROVE THR REFOUND OR ATLEAT A CREDIT .. SO FOR SURE I WILL REPORT THIS WITH THE BBB .. GOOGLE AND ALL SOCIAL MEDIA ... UNTIL I GET MY MONEY BACK Joselina cabrera"
Pros: "No me gusto nada..."
Cons: "1.me cobraron $100 por la maleta pequeña por q hubo un error cuando compre mi boleto,error de ustedes no mio,hice escala y me cobraron 50 y 50. 2.no hay personal suficiente que hable Español,estaba perdida y sin ayuda en español. 3.no dan Meriendas en los vuelos,todo lo cobran. 4.espacios pequeños en el avion y el avion vacio y me dieron el peor asiento. 5.tuve una muy mala experiencia tube que hacer chek in 2 veces,salir y volver a entrar cuando no era nesesario...tuve un pesimo dia y hasta llore.."
Cons: "At least 12 delay changes due to mechanical failure. Original departure was around 3pm on Sunday then it changed to 830pm, past midnight then 1 pm Monday. The gate staff was not trained to deal with customer service disputes. We were poorly informed about statuses. A food voucher was given to us minutes before any restaurant closed so I couldn't use it. I ended up booking another flight with another carrier. When the after midnight delay notification was rendered, I called the outsourced customer service and received no recourse for my inconvenience. Not even a comp checked bag. I was given two $50 vouchers but I don't plan to ever use them again. I'd rather have my refund plus the difference for the other flight and rental car I took just to get home. I also have lost wages."
Cons: "Some of The staff memebers were rude. Had to go through like four different check points for luggage, delays boarding and not very effective. One staff memeber checks your name, another one asks to attach name tag to luggage, another one has a questionnaire for suitcase asking for items in it, this is all before even checking in!! At the gate before boarding there's another huge line because again one staff memeber checks for boarding pass, another checks passport, another one goes through bags and then check in to board plane. Have to buy any food you want to consume, not even water for free."
Pros: "Flight was early, plane was clean. Flight was uneventful"
Cons: "They charge ridiculous prices for luggage, even carry ons. Paid $42 each way for one checked bag. Food and drink are not free. Water was broken on plane in washroom. They try to get you to pay for a seat, otherwise you may not sit with your family. Only allow 40lbs in checked luggage, but you can bring as much weight as you want in personal or carry on. 41+ lbs costs an extra $30. They nickel and dime you for everything even $10 to print boarding pass. Initial price on Kayak was lower than everyone else, but with all the add ons turned out to be much more expensive. Not allowed to bring tennis racquets on board, have to check them. Jet Blue allows them to be carried on board. Will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "miss flight sitting there at restaurant no coutersy call there where rude cost extra 1900 one way to sxm told manager from spirit airline carlos was his name lugage was sent to san juan medicine was in are lugage they said it was are fault to have are medicine in the lugage never again whith them sad lot money extra"
Pros: "Needless to say, price was a plus. Comparable prices on JetBlue and Avianca on the same CTG to FLL flights were US$300-$400 more at the time of booking. Arrived just in time at the airport for the cutoff provided in the online check-in paperwork and the line was full with all the other passengers for that flight there being processed. I thought surely it would be a long wait and soon the flight would be closed, but we actually moved very swiftly as they had 3 agents tending to the counter. They were all courteous and quick. At the gate, an announcement was made that the flight was overbooked and they offered a couple of volunteers a $500 credit towards Spirit flights as well as being re-booked for next days flight. Once on board, the three flight attendants were also courteous. WI was assigned seat 2F on their A320 v1. Best seat by far I've had assigned without paying for reserving one with Spirit. While it did not recline, I did not find the standard angle detrimental and I had TONS of legroom even when the upgraded row 1 seats ahead were reclined. The flight itself was smooth and quick. We left right on schedule to the T, and parked at our gate about 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Being one of the first out allowed me to zip through immigration without any waits and was out of the airport before our scheduled arrival time! For sure God was blessing me this day. But could it also be that Spirit's new CEO is really turning things around? Lets wait and see how the return flight goes. Stay tuned... AF."
Cons: "One of the gate attendants was a bit on the rude side, screaming and demanding that all passengers get in one line or we would not board... even after I explained that her co-worker did not call to board by zone. He had explained the boarding process, but failed to start calling by zone. He at least used the proper equipment (microphone & overhead system). But this young lady was screaming... seriously? They could've avoided by: 1. Following protocol, and 2. Being consistent in using the designated communication equipment. Additional training is needed here for sure."
Pros: "Flight was non stop"
Cons: "All the additional charges for carry on and paying for my selected seat. Will not fly this airline again. by the time I paid all the added $174 of cost it was the same price as any other airline. The epic logistic failure at Ft Lauderdale. I got to the airport 2 plus hours early and still barely made my flight in time. I wanted to get something to eat but I couldn't because I had to wait in two lines to get my boarding pass, because the Kiosk would not print my ticket. In addtion to Spirit overloading TSA in their terminal. My worst flying experience ever, and I fly a lot!"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Cons: "When we flew in from Montego Bay to Fort Lauderdale and we had to go through customs; no flight member told us that we had to get our bags from baggage to take through customs with us and then if you had a connecting flight, that you would need to re-check your baggage and go through TSA again. Also, we were not informed that if we had duty-free liquids to put them in your baggage that you would have to re-check. Needless to say, I had to find a box to put my duty-free liquids in to have checked at the ticket counter before I was able to go through TSA. It was a terrible flying experience and I will not be flying with Spirit airlines again."
Pros: "I liked that the wing said Howdy."
Cons: "Spirit is the absolute WORST airline on the market. The seats are so tiny, the airline attendants were incredibly rude. My flight home was canceled after they made us wait on the airplane for over 3 hours. They did not tell us what had happened or give us any kind of update during the time period. The flight was canceled and they were extremely unhelpful. I ended up purchasing a ticket through JetBlue to get home finally. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. You should be ashamed to work for this company."
Cons: "Flight was at 6:30 I arrived at 5:00 and was waiting on line to check in and told me it was to late- even though I was on time ! I missed my cousins wedding and had to pay a fee of $100 just to jump on the next flight! I wasn't the only person either there was 7 more SPIRIT CUSTOMERS with the same issue- it seem like they were over booked and didn't care ! On top of that my small carryon bag was 100$ for round trip- that's insane! Spirit check in worker we're so rude and nasty and didn't care about their customers! Spirit airlines should be shut down- they steal and play with there customers! I DESERVE MY MONEY BACK OR THE FEE WAVED BECAUSE THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! My number is 6317454033 klyn thank you"
Pros: "flight was ok"
Cons: "no snacks. all to be paid separately-additionally"
Cons: "When we arrived to check in, we were immediately told we would not be making our connection, we would be staying in Florida for the night and there was absolutely no other solutions to be discussed and pushed to the side. When I tried to speak with the woman at the counter inside at the gate, she continued to talk on her cell phone, telling me "no, I do nothing for you." I finally said we need to figure out a way to negotiate something, can we please see if any other flights are available that would put us closer to South Carolina. After she reluctantly hung up her cell phone, she searched and said she had a flight to Atlanta but we would be "stuck" there on our own with no luggage and she couldn't do anything about that either. I said I would drive from Atlanta to South Carolina as I absolutely needed to be back the following morning. She said she would make the switch but whatever else happens is on us and not to call her again. She said we would have to retrieve our luggage in South Carolina the following afternoon as she couldn't get our luggage to the Atlanta plane so "don't even ask." I kindly asked her to put my luggage through to our first stop, Florida, we would handle it ourselves. We arrived in Florida, ran to baggage, collected our bags and had them transferred to the Atlanta plane, and ran back through security to make our flight. I can completely understand weather being an issue that calls for no reimbursement, however, the absolutely rudeness and lack of social skills and empathy of the spirit team was disheartening. We will not even attempt to spend money our money with spirit and see if we have a better outcome next time. I will not be recommending this airline and asked my friends to choose another airline for their trip so they would not be treated the same way."
Cons: "I was in Haiti flying back to Ft Lauderdale, arrive at the airport early, check in, go through security, have a seat to then find out my flight was delayed. Annoying but not the end of the world. A few minutes go by and an airport staff (not even a Spirit staff) comes over and says an announcement is being made and we need to go to the ticket counter. Get to the ticket counter and find out our flight is cancelled and there won't be another Spirit flight out of Haiti for two days!!! No effort was made to get us on a different airline, to refund our money instantly, to offer comps, not even to be empathetic. We all had to rush to other airlines and buy different flights home which cost an exorbitant amount. But the only other option was to stay stranded and homeless in Haiti. When I called Spirit later on that day, during a long layover, they gave me a hard time about refunding my money. It's been a week later and I still have not received all my money back. Never ever ever again will I fly Spirit."
Pros: "I didn't get o to this flight at all. Staff were very friendly, but completely overwhelmed and inexperienced. They were told to tell us that we had to switch flights because we wouldn't make the connecting flight, but in fact it was because the flight was overbooked. They said I'd get a hotel and then I had to take a taxi to the hotel where there was no room - as the hotel and had already informed the Spirit airlines staff. By the time I returned to the airport for a new hotel voucher it was 3am - and I'd been at the airport since 12am. Mostly it was also crazy to see the situations of other passengers with that airline. The staff were nice, but I wouldn't even feel safe flying with spirit again, much less like I'd be well served."
Cons: "ONLY ONE CARRY ON PERMITTED, THAT IS NOT EVEN A CARRY ON, IT IS A 'PERSONAL BAG' THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN FIT A PAIR OF PANTS IN IT!!! I FELT ROBBED, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. MY LUGGAGE WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY FLIHTG TICKET, I MEAN I HAD TO PAY TWICE FOR CARRYING A PAIR OF PANTS AND A LAPTOP. I WILL MAKE SURE, NOT TO RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINE TO ANY OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND THEY KNOW. I FELT INSPIRED BY THIS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE TO CREATE A BLOG JUST TO PRVENT OTHER USERS FROM THE LACK OF INFORMATION REGARDING THIS COMPANY. In addition to that, in my three hours flight I had to pay for WATER and the seats were stock (meaning that none of the seats were adjustable)."
Pros: "Unlike on my prior Spirit attempt at least I got to my destination this time"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats for a red-eye flight. How can Southwest get me from FLL to LAS with $8 WiFi and snacks and food and drinks and free luggage for less money then the "UN-BUNDLEr" with none of these amenities and have the chutzpah to offer/charge $5 speedy security fee when their own ticketing agent says "I've never seen this before, I've no idea what this is" and Airport's TSA agents have no idea what that is and there is no separate line for this "service" and it's just a way for Spirit to get extra $5 out a traveler who is concerned of long security lines - SHAMEFULL!"
Pros: "There was no one at the agent desk during the boarding time and that's when we all started to look up the status of the flights. Finally someon showed up but was unsure about the delay time. I had to react quick and purchase a flight with American to make it back in time for work. When I called spirit customer service I was told you missed your flight so no refund. After re-explaining my situation it fell on deaf ears. Reality of this is that I won't fly spirit unless it's my final chance to get somewhere that is an emergency. The seats are uncomfortable and not even water is complimentary. Cheap flight but all the add-On are not worth it"
Pros: "We could sit"
Cons: "One hour late, no explanation why. One member of staff very rude."
Pros: "There's nothing to like"
Cons: "Once I found out there is a fee of $42 dollars per checked bag with a limit of 40lbs, I tried to cancel my flight , but was told I would lose all my money. So I had no choice but to keep my reservation with this airline. They charge for everything from seats, to getting on the plane first and even carry ons. They don't even serve water during the flight. Planes are tiny and old. No space. On our flight back home we missed our connection due to a sick passenger. When we got to the gate the plane was just leaving. We were sent to customer service, and the only alternative given to us was a flight three days later. This was outrageous. I was traveling with my 71 year old mom and they expected us to spend three days sleeping at the airport. We refused to do so and bought tickets on delta. Other families with small children who had also lost their flights had no other choice but to stay and wait. This airline treats customers with no courtesy. Clerks are rude and in humane. They could care less if you lose your flight and have to spend days sleeping at the airport. They have literally no customer service. This airline should be shut down by the FAA."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Usury charges for all services, including seat changes, carry-on prices, lack of complimentary snacks & drinks on board. Major complaint. Long delays (hours and hours). Both flights. One 6 hours delay. Another, 4 hours delay. No prior notification. Passengers were forced to spend down time at the airport gates or be charged for finding other flights on nearby airlines with more timely departure. Just for the record, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I didn't save money and I didn't enjoy 10 hours of wait time with not believable explanation. (Sent for another plane to fly the route -- same excuse on both flights) Additionally, check in was ridiculously slow. Two clerks to manage hundreds of angry people. The equipment problem that was used as the excuse to send for another plane was justified by the clerk who was checking me in answered my question with the following statement: "You wouldn't want to fly a plane that could fall out of the sky, right? There is no reason that person should be handling customers. That kind of 'in your face' response to an inquiry about a 4 hour delay is unacceptable. We should have been compensated in some way other than be told 'take it or leave it, at our expense. In this case, an 8:55 p.m scheduled departure delayed to 12:30 a.m. boarding time would have gotten us to our destination (LaGuardia to Ft. Lauderdale) at 3:30 a.m. Our pick up plans would have to be scuttled. That, Spirit Airlines is unprofessional and unacceptable. For me, in my first attempt to fly with you, ended any further booking on Spirit Air. With this kind of performance, you will fail. (P.S. I happen to fly a lot and am a million mile customer on American Airlines and a steady customer on Jet Blue. I'd like my survey review to be forwarded to somebody who will actually see it. A response would be appreciated. Barbara Pesin email@example.com 631 - 766 - 4449"
Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."
Pros: "On plane staff were nice and helpful."
Cons: "Spirit makes you pay for every single little thing and up charges you for the littlest thing as well. A cup of water on my flight was 3$. The low price of the ticket is pointless when you get charged three times more for booking, bags, checkin, carry on... WATER. I will fly delta next time and they will give me all that for FREE. The seats and plane itself were AWFUL. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and the tray table was smaller than my iPad mini. I am not sure when Spirit changed everything but they lost several customers from it. ,their low prices draw you in."
Pros: "At first the cost, but I learned the hard way u get less than what u pay for"
Cons: "They charged me for every single bag, no such thing as a carry on with them... I thought they were going to charge me for my purse. Then NO type of curiosity snack,u pay for everything, then Spirit had about 5 international flights all land at about the same time, customs in ft Lauderdale was a mess, myself and about 250 other people missed our connecting flights n had no curiosity hotel, restaurant vouchers nothing, we had to sleep outside on the floor cause the next flight was at 8am n I was not missing that flight... So like I said NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "I literally hated everything from boarding to picking up my baggage"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats, nothing on the plane is free (soft drinks, snacks, everything costed money). We waited 35 minutes for our bags to be put on the belt.. The plane was old and decrepit, no tvs or any sort of entertainment. Our flight on the way home was cancelled thank god I bought flight insurance because spirit airlines is BS. I'm surprised they're still in business. Oh and I had to pay for my effing seats AND my baggage, including checked AND carry on bags. I'm never giving this airline my business anymore and I suggest all of you do the same!!!!"
Cons: "This was the worst flight experience I have ever had. Spirit switched their flight to a smaller airplane at the last minute and left about a dozen passengers without a seat, left stranded on a flight they PAID FOR, checked in online for, and ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT over 2 hours in advance for. They refused to communicate with us as we waited. They were completely understaffed and left a single employee to handle this. His ineptitude delayed the entire flight and stranded passengers remained stranded. Horrible, incompetent, disorganized, and completely Spirit's fault."
Pros: "nothing was impressive."
Cons: "Charging for every single thing they can possibly charge you for. The icing on that cake is that they even charge you for water in flight. Now, that is so horrible. Only taking credit cards too. There are many older people on these flights that do not even have credit cards.... so they may not have water? Cheap flight!!??? nope, add everything together and with flight attendants that don't want to be there and a captain that let us sit on the tarmac for a good 15 minutes before thinking he should tell us what's going on. That was my first and it is my last Spirit flight! And i am telling everyone that i know not to fly Spirit. Some people I have told have stories of their own and said they won't fly Spirit ever again too."
Pros: "The cheap fare"
Cons: "Not having curbside check-in. Printing a boarding pass to join the line to speak with an agent to check-in luggage or baggage drop. The price for one piece of checked luggage on Spiritair.com went from $26 a week before the trip,$42 the day before the trip, and then $56 the day of the trip. Not to mention feeling bad for the customers who did not use the kiosk to print their boarding to passes to either have pay the $10 fee at the counter for a boarding pass or go to the Kiosk print out a boarding pass for free then to turnaround and have to rejoin the check-in line all over again if they have to do a baggage drop."
Cons: "I checked in at the airport for my departure to find out that it is legal for spirit to over book their flights, and was told I didn't have a seat. I requested to speak with the manager, (Helen- 67672) after speaking with a young girl who was extremely rude and unprofessional, (Ashley- 66584), and to my surprise the supervisor was just as uninformed and rude as the gate attendant. The flight was delayed, it was a complete mess. On the returning flight. I was unable to check in online for my flight. After numerous attempts, I called the airline to find that you can only check in online or at the airport. I ended up sitting in the very last seat in the back of the plane. It's like the back seat of the plane doesn't exist, no one asked to purchase beverages/snacks, which isn't as bad as forgetting to ask to take away garbage. Such a huge disappointment. I hate flying spirit, as do the majority of passengers I spoke with, but they are the only airline that flies from South Florida to Atlantic City. Whoever the airline is that starts to compete with spirit for that route will most definitely do well!"
Pros: "One lady was the only help in Fort Lauderdale out of every single part of our round trip."
Cons: "Showed up almost an hour early to Cleveland airport to fly to another state. The lady tried telling us we missed our trip because she made us go to the kiosk to only get denied by the kiosk and having to go back to her for her to deny us until we flipped out making her realize it's her fault. Charged us extra for carry on baggage because the checked baggage "wouldn't make it." Writing that in a note that we were late...even though it was her fault we were. Our tickets were 218 dollars each we ended up paying 200 dollars for our baggage because you have to pay for both trips which is another round trip ticket to Florida because the lady never told us in Cleveland that we had to buy both ways. Everything on the plane to order was a cost not even water was complimentary. On the way back we got to the airport two hours early to find no one at the counter to help us at the gate...she showed up only about 30 minutes before we boarded, real professional...but we cut our vacation by an hour and a half because we "have to come 90 minutes ahead" to find none of the spirit crew members to be even present. Everything was inconvenient with this airline and not pleasant. Only positive was a lady in Fort Lauderdale that helped us figure out our luggage and did what she could to save us a bit of money. We will never take this airline again."
Cons: "Kept delaying the flight from Atlantic city to fort laudetdale and then it was cancelled. Had to rebook a flight to Orlando , which left 6 hours later than our original time. Was traveling with my friend and her 10 week old baby. When we got to Orlando they couldn't find the car seat. Staff was very rude and told us it wasn't on the plane and take a 5 minute walk to baggage. Had to take a shuttle to baggage and of course it wasn't on carousel. After 2 hours of waiting and basically fighting for our rights we got the car seat and were able to leave. We got a @ sorry" e mail from spirit along with a $100 voucher. Sorry Spirit but you can keep your voucher because we will NEVER fly you again. They had no empathy at all for the mothers with new babies. Worst flying experience ever!!!"
Pros: "Arriving safely at my destination"
Cons: "No literature, no amenities, crowded seats that don't recline, getting nickel and dimed by attendants like carnival barkers for water, sitting next to dehydrated and furious people that just had to pay $55 to bring a carry-on which offset any savings they thought they were getting by flying Spirit, and a patronizing ad campaign that tries to get you excited to be miserable. "[Amenities] just weigh us down." It said something like that on the print out. I feel like not distributing water as a safety precaution in a pressurized atmosphere for a 5.5 hour flight is just begging for a catastrophe because a passenger couldn't whip out his MasterCard quick enough to stay hydrated."
Cons: "Rude agents at check-in. No terminal announcements despite flight being one hour late and a gate change. Boarding by zone was totally ignored - almost a free-for-all. Boarding even more disorganized by using contract personnel at SXM. No apologies by agents or crew that flight was late. Has to be the smallest seat pitch in the industry and do not recline. Expect your seat back to get kicked or kneed for the entire four hours - mine sure was. No Wi-Fi or any form of in-flight entertainment. The longest four hour flight of my life. Everything (I mean everything is extra $$$). Reserved seats, carry-on bags, 40 lb. weight limit on checked bags ($25 if between 41-50 lbs.) Water $3.00. Coke $3.00. If you want anything to eat or drink you pay extra. No ice on flight (They don't refresh the plane or have cleaning service from international locations). No updates or flight information upon arrival. Either staff has had no training for customer service or they just don't care. Probably a combination of both. This airline makes Delta and other "full fare" airlines look like first class even in coach. Over two hours to get bags, clear customs and recheck bags (Transfer) in FLL. Again no customer service even though FLL is their main hub. My first time flying on Spirit and I guarantee that was the last. Stay away from this hack airline."
Cons: "It's sad you only want my review from my return flight. If I had a choice not to fly back on Spirit I wouldn't have. The first flight seats were horrible. The passenger in front of me reclined and the seats rested on my knees and hurt the entire flight. Paying for carry on was absolutely ridiculous. Having to pay for a glass or cup of water, not bottle, was beyond horrific. Flight attendants were not friendly. This experience is so far the worst flight experience I've ever had. It was my first on Spirit and I pray I don't have to give you my money ever again."
Pros: "Earlier in the day I was having trouble checking in and tried to call Spirit for help. It took me a long time just to figure out how to get to a person to speak with and got the message that I might be charged to speak with someone. I hung up. I can't recall having to pay to speak to an employee at any other business. The flight was delayed. 4 hours. They told us it was because of a thunder storm, but later admitted it was a problem with a flight attendants seat. When I got a chance to order a drink I was told they no longer carry scotch. Your tickets may be cheaper, but the experience is not worth it."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It's one thing If a flight is late due to weather. But the fact that we were supposed to leave at 7:30pm and didn't end up leaving till 10:30pm because a crew member didn't show up at a previous stop is unacceptable. If I was late to my flight the plane would leave without me so everyone else could be on time. So why don't The same rules apply to The crew? The three hour delay ruined basically our whole trip. We got set back an entire day and instead of getting in at a decent time and being able to drive. Also, Spirit charges and over charges for everything under the sun. So you "cheap flight" cost me more then other airlines. Completely disapointed and after my flight home Sunday we're never flying spirit again."
Cons: "an hour after our supposed boarding time, we were told that the plane needed to reboot but I would still make my connection flight in Ft Lauderdale. After another 2 hours I was then told that I can board the flight which was now leaving at 3 am opposed to the scheduled 9:30 pm flight, but they did not have another connection flight until the next evening at 9:30. Eventually, I had to cancel my flight and was refunded my money. I spent another 2 hours trying to get my luggage off the plane and the both women, one ticket agent and another Spirit employee were attempting to help me, when i went back to the desk they were gone and didn't return. I had to contact the Tampa Airport so that they could find a Spirit Airline employee to get my luggage. I finally received my luggage at 3:30 am. I had to stay in the airport because my next flight through another carrier was leaving at 730 am. I will NEVER even think about booking another flight with Spirit!! Their customer service was horrible and inconsiderate of any of the patrons who were traveling on that flight. Unfortunately my trip was not for pleasure but due to a loss in the family and they didn't seem to have a care in the world about anyone's cancelled flight. Amongst the few hours that I sat there, every other person that was on the same flight continually complained that this is not their first time traveling with Spirit and there always seemed to be an issue, either flights departing late and being cancelled completely"
Cons: "The crew is very unfriendly. The cost of the ticket was cheap, however the flight was delayed ntil 2:50 AM when we were supposed to take off at 12:00 AM. I arrived at the airport with some of the spirit staff sitting down and letting me know that the flight may be cancelled altogether since it was delayed. The woman at the desk in the MSP airport told me that if "ya'll don't sit in your seats fast, the plane will be cancelled." This was after arriving at the airport around 3AM since my flight was delayed. I get it, the tickets are cheap.... but should the experience and hospitality be so cheap as well?"
Pros: "The initial fare was great and enticing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that bag fees are twice as much as other airlines, carry ons are $100 per, what is normally free on other airliines (like coffee, soda or water) you charge for, and the weight limit for a checked bag is 40 pounds not 50 and then there is an additional $25 dollar charge. So, I paid $75 dollars total for checking my 1 bag, which was under 50 pounds and I was traveling for two weeks, so I expected to pay a fee of $25 to check the bag. Luckily my 1 carry on was small enough to be considered a personal bag, or that would have been another $100. I chose not to drink anything because asking to pay for water is somewhat ridiculous and I found the flight attendants "humor" to not be funny at all. I guess if as an airline you want to be made a joke of than that is fine, but if you are tying to be a low price contender and offer the same service and amenities than you have missed the mark in my opinion."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed multiple times, without any time info. Only "delayed" but never were we informed for how long. Our gate was moved in the same manner. Once onboard and seated, we all waited with our seatbelts fastened for over forty minutes before the pilot spoke to us and announced that there was a line for the runway and we were waiting our turn. Spirit had rude flight attendants who searched through our bags to make sure we had no water bottles or drinks purchased after the security checkpoint - a shameless extortion effort to secure out purchase of insult priced in flight drinks. The flight attendants insisted that nobody wait for the restroom in flight anywhere near where they were sitting and promptly removed any waiting customers to the aisle. We had a baby on the flight with us and were forced to purchase the incredibly expensive water onboard for the baby, as he had been battling with staying hydrated throughout the vacation. With at least an hour left on the flight, while most everyone on board - (including the baby) had fallen asleep, they woke everyone on the flight through speakers that were about six times too loud and shocking to pass out immigration forms. The only reason I could think of to wake so may visibly sleeping customers with more than an hour left on the flight to fill out the forms is to simply get the task out of the way for the extremely unfriendly and rude attendants. I have never flown on any airline that will search your bags for drinks or treat customers with such blatant disrespect as I have seen during this flight. I have certainly never had an experience this terrible and I will never be purchasing another ticket from Spirit airlines again."
