Pros: "Amazing experience thank you Delta"
Pros: "Updated plane. Had usb charging available!!"
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."

Pros: "Loved the safety presentation made by the live stewardess!!"
Pros: "On time, courteous"
Cons: "Mechanical failure had to switch planes an hour and 20 minutes late"
Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."
Pros: "Someone was sitting in our sit. But put us in three sit so happy . She was so nice lady"
Pros: "Two Delta agents a kiosk assistance were not aware of the Hurricane Irma policy of waiving baggage fees to my destination. I informed them that the website indicated it would waive baggage fees to certain destinations if checked in at the airport before a certain date. Another Delta agent nearby had to show them a copy of the policy before I could get my baggage fees waived."

Pros: "Went smoothly"
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Cons: "Seat space very narrow and uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "A little turbulance, but nothing too outlandish."
Cons: "I felt like the Sr. Flight Attendance and the Pilot weren't on the same page. -Pilot: "Everyone remain seated" -Sr. Flight Attendant: "We are now going to start serving refreshments" Not sure what was going on there, but at least we arrived safely."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."
Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Not much legroom. Good movie shown but would have like personal options like other airlines."
Pros: "Got me there eventually"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "Flight crew somehow noticed that we had someone in our party who could use some extra consideration. They pre boarded us as a result! They were also extra considerate during the flight."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!! Great job."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "On time departure and landed a little early"
Cons: "Seats should recline more More food options"
Pros: "the ground crew gave me an express pass to navigate pass the Summer Holiday TSA queues. Was worried I was going to miss flight. So that’s was super good of ANA ground staff at LAX!"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Cons: "Overall a good flight LAX- IAD"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable in economy plus."
Cons: "Bigger screens. More options for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "How much do United Engineers get paid? They can’t figure out how to make the last row recline? And why was this particular flight not able to let me select a seat?"
Pros: "The crew was there when I needed them. And out of the way to help sleep. Nice service on departure with wide range of drinks and snacks. Really like entertainment on devices. Many more options of movies to watch. Easy access to restrooms with one in the front and two in the rear."
Cons: "Baggage collection at Dulles can be improved. It took over 30 minutes for the bag to arrive."
Pros: "The flight was relatively short and uneventful."
Cons: "The workers at the airport, airline door, and flight attendants were all very rude. After sitting in LAX traffic for over 2 hours, they could’ve at least attempted to be friendly and helpful. I swore I’d never fly United again, and this solidified my opinion."
Pros: "Nothing, the seats were really horrendous, the head rest was in such an awkward position that it was better to attempt to hunch over and try to sleep on the tray. The lack of leg room as well made it equally uncomfortable. Seriously, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The aircrew on my flight to Washington was courteous and efficient. It was a red eye so mostly slept. I understand why the seating has become more cramped and can accept that."
Cons: "The ground crew at the United station at LAX were outrageous. They told me they were tougher than other airports, and they harangued the Economy passengers actually telling them that the Economy ticket didn’t allow them anything. “That it wasn’t worth buying an Economy ticket.” Why do they sell them? These people need some serious customer relations retraining."
Pros: "Did not have any food so an N/A option for this category is needed."
Cons: "The exit, economy plus seat I chose was described as limited recline when it fact the chairs do not recline at all. I was so disappointed. Had I known this, I would have chosen a different seat. My neck was hurting by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Seats with little cushion that make you sit virtually upright for over 5 hours."
Cons: "Would not allow upgrade even thought seats available because my economy ticket was not appropriate for upgrade. Seems that if all those who could upgrade hf upgraded had done so, why not allow the upgrade. Would have been more money for airlines and I would have enjoyed the trip more."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable, they force you to slouch. They should support your lower back instead."
Pros: "Most of the crew were friendly but some board and inattentive"
Cons: "Paying for food and movies"
Cons: "My seat was changed without my knowledge or consent and no one was able to tell me why or fix it. I spoke with a united customer service supervisor and have yet to hear from anyome about it."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful; I purchased a business class seat, which was comfortable (although I could not tell the difference between business class and coach seats)."
Cons: "The food was horrible - nothing fit for a person who is diabetic or vegan or non-dairy. And the price was outrageously high for what one received."
Pros: "Excellent experience."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Pros: "Flight was %60 full, had the last 6 rows to myself."
Cons: "Ran out of food (dinner) before they got to my row."
Pros: "Extra legroom"
Cons: "No free entertainment options"
Pros: "It was a newer model 737-900 series plane. Flight was smooth We arrived early. No major issues. Have Tito's vodka."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment offered through your own device only, which would have been fine but the charging port had no power. So essentially (for me), there was no in-flight entertainment. Seats were very narrow and bathrooms smaller than normal. Boarding process seemed to take longer than it should. Flight crew was non-existent after initial beverage service."
Pros: "Lots of beverages offered. Boarding was fine"
Cons: "Lack of food choices and cramped seating"
Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule arriving at IAD"
Pros: "Nothing, I hope they at least served some snacks."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats , struggled to sleep during my whole journey."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing all travel is ok."
Cons: "Didn't like waiting the extra time to manually pul the airplane away from the gate at departure"
Pros: "From the time of my arrival at LAX the staff was great and kept things moving right alone for me. Almost no waiting at all. The in flight staff was awsome and cheerful and very helpful and observant."
Cons: "The overhead bins were so full that I needed to put my backpack under the seat. That meant that the already-cramped seat was even more cramped. In addition the seat did not recline because it was next to an exit row. It was a red eye and I could not get comfortable enough to sleep. Also, the fact that the screen brightness control was located on top of the seat arm meant that my neighbor's arm kept turning my screen on and increasing the brightness while my neighbor was asleep."
Cons: "selection of tv and movie options on the flight"
Pros: "Free movies!"
Pros: "The crew and staff were great. The flight attendants/coordinator were gracious, professional, and represented United well. The food was good."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, if you did not have your own electronic device.."
Cons: "Inside the cabin still have rooms but they force me to checked the cabin bag in. And it has deep scars on it. Try to fix it but cannot!!"
Cons: "Letting a passenger who is vomitting in the waiting area on the flight."
Pros: "The timing."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "And my boarding group status was downgraded to 5. Consequently bins were so full my smallish roll on was taken and checked through. Not what I would have liked."
Pros: "It was comfortable and crew was friendly."
Cons: "The tv screens were so bright it was hard to sleep."
Pros: "...I got the standby flight....I guess that's cool..."
Cons: "My red eye was delayed35 minutes because of wheel replacement making it impossible for me to make my40 some odd minute layover and I had to burn up hours of my vaca in an airport and reschedule a pick up."
Pros: "I liked everything overall Service Attention Boarding Crew Food, snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Price should include WiFi or at least mention it at ticket purchase so that WiFi service can be purchased. Some trips are budget based and any extra expenditures may unbalance a vacation. I don't mind paying upfront when purchasing tickets but having my wife look at me while I'm about to purchase WiFi for the trip made me uneasy. Thanks"
Pros: "I liked the plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The first TSA lady was confused and caused us to stand in 3 different lines for check in. Another TSA person stepped in and helped us get through quick and we were able to make it on time to our gate."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and the AC wasn't working"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Pros: "By getting my ticket from Kayak I was always informed if my flas delay and updates every time. And due to I drove to a far places after I got to Washington I was about to lose my flight but the airline was able to gave me another flight later on. So was perfect."
Pros: "They did not care"
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Cons: "Bad Service over all."
Cons: "Bad service, delay flight, crew not smile and food being a delay flight as courtesy not even a free meal?"

Cons: "Sat on runway for 50 min after we landed"
Pros: "The worst customer service ever."
Pros: "Very smooth from start to finish"

Pros: "Best price for last minute booking"
Cons: "Extensive bag charges!!"
Cons: "An 8hr delay, for a small emergency light part. Missing a day of work."
Cons: "Late boarding and take off"
Cons: "We left 30 minutes late due to "paperwork" that was not properly completed and filed for an overnight repair."
Pros: "The speed and leg room."
Pros: "Price. Short lines."
Cons: "Website was only partially operable when accessed from a link in an email when trying to "buy a bag" and check in. Had to access site directly, then it worked. However, I spent a frustrating 45 minutes when trying to buy a bag and check in when I used the link. Also had trouble using the Frongier app. Could not check in using it."
Cons: "Plane seemed much noisier than competition."
Cons: "Passenger should have one carry-on for free"
Pros: "The price was somewhat competitive"
Cons: "Comfort was nonexistent, and paying for water is ridiculous"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Cons: "Cokes, sprites etc should be free"
Cons: "Delays was really bad small plane took an hour for them to let us have our bags."
Pros: "I like nothing"
Pros: "Same as above comment"
Pros: "We got there ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The carry on fee and seat fee. Come on!"
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Cons: "They wouldn't refund my money"
Pros: "Timeliness, cleanliness, low fare"
Cons: "Slight delay (15 mins) returning from Atlanta, no water offerred onboard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Atlabta and then re-rerouted to Cleveland before finally landing at IAD."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks included."
Cons: "The cost of baggage but on the other hand the airline fare was so inexpensive that in reality the trade off was worth it. You must a strategic packer when flying Frontier."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. The boarding was late and we arrived late to my destination. The baggage claim took too long. The pricing for bags were too expensive. I will never use frontier again, that's why there prices are so cheap."
Pros: "The Prices"
Cons: "NOTHING At All. This was great"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Price, flight time"
Pros: "Everything worked like clockwork from the boarding, flight. & exiting. The attendants were professional and attentive, in particular with a couple of children traveling without adults. We even arrived about twenty minutes ahead of schedule!!"
Cons: "What's not to like??"
Pros: "I had to book a flight at last minute so I appreciated the low fares that Frontier offers. I have flown Frontier before and miss the televisions that were once in the seats as well as a legitimate tray."
Cons: "Charging for carry-on luggage and charging for soft drinks and snacks is a bit tacky. To not have proper storage for carry-on because emergency equipment was in the overhead suggests poor layout design of the airplane."
Pros: "Got me to where I was going"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and crew was nice"
Cons: "Very tight accommodations."
Pros: "I am handicapped and need a wheelchair to get to the gate. After I arrived at the gate and was ready to pre-board, Frontier sent another attendant to wheel me down the ramp which was fantastic since most times I have to drag and stumble my way down the ramp to board. When the plane arrived at Dulles, there was a wheelchair waiting for me at the door of the plane-a first in many flights. I am grateful for the Frontier staff's consideration and assistance."
Cons: "Having flown Frontier before, I was aware of the baggage charges, so I try to prepare accordingly (pay for all baggage online rather than at the gate). I am a bit perplexed, however, at the seat charge. I am handicapped and must sit in an aisle seat where I can stretch out my leg to some degree. I was told that because I am handicapped I do not have to pay for a special seat, but every time fly Frontier, I have had to pay to get an aisle seat. What do I have to do to get the necessary seating without charge other than sit wherever they place me and chance a circulatory episode?"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy, the plane was good (nothing special). No food or entertainment but that was ok as it was a short flight. Crew was personable and efficient"
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of communication between the flight crew and the check in counter. The ladys at check in said the flight was delayed by two hours but once i got to the gate the board and crew said the flight was on time, so i dont know what that was about."
Pros: "The service from the employees were great. Their attitudes were superior. The flight went with no problems."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is the absolute worst airline to fly on. The planes are old and uncomfortable. The flight was not on time and they charge you for snacks and drinks which should be standard."
Cons: "You pay for what you get!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "All the extra charges"
Pros: "Warm temperaturw"
Cons: "Rude staff, uncomfortable seats (does not recline)"
Pros: "The flight crew was very courteous and professional. They made the flight very pleasant."
Cons: "I really do not like the callous attitudes of the personnel at the ticketing counter at the gate. The talk to passengers in a very unprofessional manner. This is not the first time I encountered this with Spirit airlines. The heightened baggage fees are utterly ridiculous. I also did not like that the seats were sooo close to one another and did NOT recline at all."
Pros: "Finally made it but like everything about this lousy experience, now we can’t even get off the damn plane. Seats are awful...a flying sardine can."
Cons: "Everything. Although we did arrive alive."
Pros: "i was in the last row of seats and the flight attended offered the tall gentleman sitting next to me the exit row, so we didn't have to be cramped. boarding was a little sluggish, the in flight service was good and it was a good flight. made it on time. overall good flight."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful ...cheerful. Captain talk to guest...grear customers sevice!"
Cons: "We were in last seat. A little more leg room."
Pros: "We arrived safely at BWI"
Cons: "Paying for my assigned seats, 50 pound checked bag, sprite & the headache of the long check-in lines. The staff wasn’t much help, either."
Cons: "Everything...Spirit airlines suck! False advertising...expect to pay a bag fee coming and going with a round trip...delays...rude staff etc. I don't usually leave reviews but this was a horrible experience...Stay away from spirit good luck"
Pros: "Appeared modern and clean. Seated with family so tight space was no problem. Checked bag arrived with me"
Cons: "Not knowing for sure about deating"
Pros: "the affordability and the friendly service.. easy to reserve on line..."
Cons: "cramp seats, the price for the food snd drinks...."
Pros: "The entire process of ticketing, boarding, on-board conduct, etc was comfortable and easy. We were satisfied with our experience with Spirit. Thank you."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Getting to Baltimore early"
Cons: "Missed boarding by five minutes and they were no help."
Pros: "New airplanes, pilot communication with passangers"
Cons: "Space in seats extremely liimited, not offering water or sodas, way to expensive the baggage."
Pros: "We didn't die tragically young in a fiery inferno of plane parts."
Cons: "This is a very long list and repeats much of what I previously mentioned (hidden fees, lots of 'em), but I will add that at the gate there was some sort of mystery drama that led one of the staff members to some pretty exasperated proclamations. It seemed like a bunch of high schoolers running an airline with the amount of professionalism one might expect from a pep rally. We seriously had concerns about the staff's competence at that point. The strange smell just prior to take off and the instruction to close our vents so the plane could take off didn't do much to reassure."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "The initial cheap price is a lie a fraud a deception. $45 for a carry on bag, $15 to select a seat, $3 for a coke. And the tiniest seats I've ever seen with no leg room."
Cons: "REFUSED BOARDING DUE BEFORE 15 MINUTE MINIMUM: MISSING GATE AGENT"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. A major problem on the airplane resulted in a woman stealing another woman's seat; and then being escorted off by an air marshal. However, the crew was professional, calm, and friendly to the passengers despite a long delay."
Cons: ""Nickel and Dime'ing" taken to a new level. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable - the worst I've ever been in. I will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "There was 3 1/2 delay instead of getting home by 10 pm Sunday night, it was 2 am Monday morning . The whole Spirit Airline experience was poor, paying for luggage was one thing having to pay for a seat that's unreasonable. The additional $110 expense when attempting to get a boarding pass really stinks. In addition to the above disappointment, Spirit didn't load my luggage on the Bwi to Atl leg of this trip. My luggage was delivered the next day. The experience was for going and coming back I seriously doubt I will use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "On my way to my destination I was charged for my carry on bag. On my way back I wasn't charged because it was small enough & all I got was an apology for the initial charge. That sucks. I will not travel via Spirit again."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The leg room was very close, they didn't offer any complimentary snacks and I asked a flight attendant if she could throw away a cup before we took off, she said someone would be around later to collect garbage. Also, my flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "The pilot was very good and perfect landing"
Cons: "Very Awkward Check in processes and services. Do something about it."
Pros: "The low priced ticket."
Cons: "Charging up to $65 for a carry on is outrageous!"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. Charging $55 for a carry on is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. My $180 flight turned into a $290 flight. And when I tried to pay for my carry on ahead of time online it said my confirmation code was invalid. Be more forthcoming with your prices"
Pros: "That I got to my destination alive"
Cons: "It was super cold, everything offered was expensive, the seats didn't recline and the pilot didn't let any of the passengers know any information about the landing delays."
Pros: "The price for ticket"
Cons: "That you had to pay 50 dollars to check bags, that you had to pay to bring a carry on or charged 100 dollar fine, that you have to pay for drinks and snacks on plane."
Pros: "Great crew and wonderful value for $. Crew always makes up for contracted airport staff, who seem to be hit or miss"
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "They charge for carryon bags, to print your boarding pass, for a soda, even peanuts!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "I was in first class and the whole experience was comfortable and quick. I would fly with them again."
Pros: "People. Where nice."
Cons: "Under carage noisy."
Cons: "Was very disappointed to find that complete overcharge on bags . I understand a bag charge but to completely double your charge more than any other airlines is absolutely dishonest you should have just put it in your ticket"
Pros: "Not one single thing!"
Cons: "Having to fly on Spirit, your crooked, deceitful, poor customer service ways. You are the bottom of the bottom! I can't believe that our government allows you to stay in business. Your planes are dirty, reeks of puke, and unsafe. It's only a matter of time before people start having health problems because of your dirty nasty planes and before the planes start falling out of the sky because of the old, poor maintained planes. Do us a favor and merge with another company who knows how to run an airline business like Southwest, American, Delta. Better yet, just SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Promptness in flight stewardist were polite and friendly"
Pros: "The plane was not an old one, but it was just a step higher than a cargo plane. Everything was bear minimum on the interior."
Cons: "Watch out for additional charges such as carry-on and seat charges when you check the in. Not a passenger friendly air line. Everything is for sale including water."
Pros: "Did not like charge for carry-bag."
Cons: "Late, late, late. DISORGANIZED."
Cons: "Love it but little delay"
Pros: "Crew was nice, airplane was clean, flight was on time."
Cons: "Very, very small seats. So many fees."
Cons: "Delaaaaaays. And crying babies. No Bueno"
Pros: "Nothing. I hope to NEVER have to fly SPIRIT again!!!"
Cons: "Needs more handicap assistance"
Pros: "The crew wasn't as friendly as they could have been, sadly. We were seated next to a man wearing a confederate cap. I was traveling with my Mom, who is 77 and slightly disabled. We are African Amderican so you can imagine the awkwardness. We asked a crewmember/FA if we could be moved as there was ample seats on the flight, he told us no. He did however, allow the passenger wearing the confederate baseball cap to move, to his preferred seat. Two things wrong, one, pretty sure you can imagine what."
Cons: "I paid for a $9 Fare Club, was charged an extreme amount for bags."
Cons: "Had to pay for my baggages when I did not know there was no military exemption. Delays were terrible and seat was horrible experience. When I received my baggage, I noticed someone went through to check my stuff because the zipper was undone and zipper is now broken. No items were stolen."
Cons: "$50 per bag is rip off"
