Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Crew good, seat pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seating choice was unavailable and we were stuck with two middle seats in a row of 4 across. Air NZ tried to bribe us into staying overnight and taking a one stop itinerary the next day."
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Cool temps in plane"
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "Unclear check in counter"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "We upgraded to premium economy, and Tony was very attentive and took great care of us!"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "Everybody was so helpful and friendly. The seating was quite pleasant although my boyfriend and I are used to staying next to each other. The entertainment was extensive keeping anybody busy for a long flight and the menu was broad enough and good quality. This is the way all flights should be!"
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Cons: "I booked this in October and chose 2 seats with one being an aisle seat. I was moved with my wife to the two middle seats in a row of four, like a second class citizen. There was no meatless options for food. Cabin temperature varied wildly requiring several clothing changes in a cramped seat I didn't select."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Pros: "Tons of free movies."
Cons: "As a vegan I didnt think the food was great. But they did have food for me to eat so that was nice."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Very friendly and good service- price was very high for the distance/time"
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Plane was late getting in so boarding was an hour late"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was maintenance happening on the plane after everyone boarded. It was a long wait on the plane and it could have been better if that was done before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"
Pros: "On time, good boarding process."
Pros: "Nothing I was traveling with my to kids and I ask if they can please provide me the setting for us together and they told us they can’t do it. I end up doing it by my self this is not good and didn’t get the help I need"
Cons: "Overall I didn’t like this flight at all"
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."
Pros: "I was in business class and the individual cubicles were so comfortable. I slept well. The airline attendant was so attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Going through LAX what a mess"
Cons: "The flight attendant closed all the overhead bin doors...even though there was room in them and she INDICATED as much...so why did she close them DURING the ongoing boarding process. Very strange and very dumb!"
Pros: "Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre."
Cons: "The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Cons: "My flight TO Charlotte was cancelled on Wednesday morning and AA couldn’t find me a flight to CLT on Wednesday so I had to spend 22 hours in the car driving to NC and back. I huge pain!!!"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "Crew very quick and efficient in service"
Cons: "Over crowding, boarding is a jungle,"
Pros: "ON TIME"

Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour. The plane was uncomfortably hot while we taxied. They could have waited to board the flight or served drinks while we waited."
Pros: "Priority boardinf"
Cons: "Being forced to pay extra for seating because no other seats available."
Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"
Pros: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."

Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable on American Airlines compared to Qantas"
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "The crew were fast and friendly but maybe too fast. It felt a bit rushed."
Cons: "It felt a bit rushed."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Pros: "Ecerything from the boarding to the seating assignment"
Cons: "Just have to be organize as they do the boarding process"
Cons: "Felt as though some American Airlines crew members were abrupt. I've never experienced that with Qantas or Jetstar."
Pros: "One of the smoothest flights and landings ever."
Cons: "Each seat doesn't have its own screen. Plane feels older than JetBlue by a lot. First checked bag is not free like JetBlue. WiFi is another additional charge. Overall cost was significantly higher than JetBlue for less value."
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Pros: "Good movie selection, decent food selection."
Cons: "Wifi was not free."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "Food was great and the service!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "The flight crew had a sense of humor"

Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Not a whole lot."
Cons: "Everything. The flight was delayed by 4 hours. There was no food in first class. The luggage was put on an earlier flight ans delivered to a different gate. The person handling luggage in Gate A was rude. We had to go to the other gate at 1am to pickup our luggage."
Pros: "Got home without delays. As satisfactory as possible in economy class."
Cons: "Much better flight back than going to switzerland"
Pros: "Crew worked very well with us."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid entertainment"
Pros: "That it was over"
Cons: "Dallas to Newark worst flight I ever had crew was rude they did not control the guest well they pretty much let them do whatever they wanted not safe."
Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."
Pros: "the warm baked goods when we landed"
Cons: "not so much leg space"
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Lounge in Santo Domingo was very nice. Fair price for ticket."
Cons: "Upgraded to business class for flight home. I had aisle seat last row. Cart left in aisle to keep cabin class from constantly using the bathroom by the cockpit. But they kept coming just pushing the cart aside and rubbing their butts on my arms and shoulders to squeeze by. I understand why they did it. Many times their was a long line and people bothering the guests in business class. I eventually complained and the cart was removed. The attendants really tried hard to minimize the traffic through that section. But to little success."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "Flight delayed and missed connection"
Cons: "Delayed several times. Very inconvenient ."
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"
Cons: "Lavatories did not seem to have been cleaned"

Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Everything about my whole trip was amazing"
Pros: "Very uneventful, which is provably a good thing when you just want to get to where you want to be. Service wa excellent."
Cons: "Everything for a fee."
Pros: "Flight was nearly three hours late taking off"
Cons: "United's inefficient practices resulted in a missed connection for which they did nothing to compensate me."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule and arrived early."
Pros: "Great flight. Pilot flew away from hurricane."
Pros: "They were on time."

Pros: "Crew was attentive. I liked the wifi option to watch movies"
Cons: "Didn't like that I paid to upgrade my seat for more legroom but another person saw the empty seat next to me moved into it without paying and crew did nothing about it. Also paid $50 extra for priority boarding and security but was informed by the airport staff in Aruba that it didn't apply for that airport. Seats are a little tight"
Cons: "No communication to those of us with tight connections. No communication to the flights we were connecting to so that maybe they could hold the door open maybe 5-10 minutes longer."
Pros: "I was happy to have leg room on this flight. My first one was way too cramp"
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "1)Arrived early from Savannah (9pm) 2)Waited 3+ hours for a delayed aircraft to arrive 3)Told after midnight that the flight was canceled 4)Only ONE agent working the desk to handle all of the displaced passengers. (Three agents arrived about 15 min later) 5)Would have appreciated earlier notification if the flight crew could not/would not fly when they arrived at Dulles. I had to be to work in NJ at 8am. I was forced to sleep for only 2 hours before getting up to rent a car to drive to NJ in order to make it to my appointment. Now I need to chase United around to get a refund--UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1"
Pros: "Wasn’t able to board due to the extensive long lines at TSA. SJU needs to improve their staffing to make the process a lot quicker. Missed the flight and wasn’t able to be accommodated"
Cons: "Add more staffing for TSA in SJU to speed up the process"
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The window seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Faster takeoff"
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "not on time, delayed flight"
Pros: "The lady crew members were well dressed, helpful and very nice."
Cons: "Crew arrived late so left about 45 min late...but communication was good and timely and we arrived only 15 past scheduled time."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable without delays, I had no luggage."
Cons: "Less fees"
Cons: "Why a passenger get a ticket for $189 paying $50 for lagage need 2 or $3 to get a bottle of water? I didn't appreciate that from you guys we need to work on that. We don't ask for snacks. After that everything was fine. Good job to the team"
Cons: "Seats are very tight No space Will be my last trip on spirit"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay $45 just to carry a bag on is insane. It ended up being more expensive than the United flight after paying for my carry on bag, choosing a seat that doesn’t even recline after paying 40$ for the seat, and the coffee and water. I won’t be traveling with spirit again"
Pros: "I wish I would have been notified sooner for the 3 hr flight delay."
Cons: "The person next to me was as huge as I was."
Pros: "We were an hour delayed and didn’t know it until we arrived at the airport. The website said the flight was on time. We circled for twenty minutes in bad turbulence once we reached Newark."
Pros: "the boarding process"
Cons: "the delay"
Cons: "we were given multiple notices, late---on time---late---finally when told the flight was on time, we went to the airport, only to wait 5 hours. spirit was not honest with us, and they did not compensate us t all, not even with a soft drink once on board"
Cons: "Wee were delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Exciting the aircraft"
Cons: "The whole experience is worth the low fare, rather pay a little more that have Spirit haggle you for luggage, fee seating fee, beverage fee and what else. In the end its cheaper getting on to a normal airline with a seat that reclines, something to drink at no charge and no additional fees. You end up saving ZERO with Spirt Air"
Cons: "They cancelled My Wednesday flight and told me the soonest they could fly me back was Sunday. So I took a more expensive delta flight."
Pros: "As always this Spirit flight was on time and the plane was clean. The flight crew was friendly, caring and courteous with an extra bonus...one steward must have been an ametuer comedian. He was tasteful yet funny and really lightened the mood! Thanks again for another great flight!"
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit is trash"
Pros: "I liked that there were extra seats on the flight and the people I sat next to were super friendly. We all had a great conversation the entire flight."
Cons: "Airport • Kayak as a third party website usually gives a flat rate, we pay, and that’s it. Not with Spirit Airlines. When you get to the counter you HAVE TO PAY EXTRA for your carryon ($55) and your checked bag ($50). That’s an extra $100 that could have been used to purchase a flat rate flight through Kayak. • You can only pay with a card, you can barely use cash Flight • Seating was too tight, no room to stretch out • Snacks even the minimum was expensive. $4 for a 4 oz of juice with ice and more • When descending for landing the pilot circled around for a full hour- first we were over the incorrect airport then when we arrived at the correct airport there was too much air traffic to land right away. Between the surprise fees I did not budget for and the extra GS expenses, along with everything else, I will not ride Soirit Airlines again."
Cons: "Flight got canceled, next flight was 48 hours later and They implied that the hotel was my problem, so we just booked Another airline. The %50 of my airline ticket fee for A checked bag wasn't helpful either. Placed on hold for almost two hours !!' Pay the extra money for a diff airline"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after security check in, just over an hour before take off. Also, no accomodations were provided. Other spirit flights also got cancelled after 3 hours of take off time. Truly Chaos and spirit did a pathetic job in managing it. NEVER EVER TAKING SPIRIT."
Pros: "Overall very satisfied. Thank you."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed by 2 hrs. I don't know why, might have been weather/post-hurricane related. HOWEVER, I did not receive notification by text as I believe I requested."
Cons: "I was charged for 2 flights that was cancelled. Booked on a flight I never made a reservation for. I have never encountered anything like this on an airline before."
Pros: "The crew and employees were excellent. They were personable and knowledgeable."
Cons: "Even though the fare may be somewhat discounted, the bag(s) were extremely expensive and everything else that most other airlines provide (water, coffee, juice, peanuts) were available to purchase. Low caliber, at best."
Pros: "Seats on the airplane"
Cons: "Got charged for everything. To pick seats you have to pay, ridiculously charged for luggage. 40lb is such a non realistic number. Should be 50lb. Horrible service from airline staff at check in. Delays like no tomorrow. Angry passengers. Will never fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "im not one to complain but Wiskey Tango Foxtrot. I show up to the gate and they somehow canceled my reservation and gave my seat away! They put me standby on that same flight. We get to the gate and it's delayed an hour. After an hour it gets canceled because the flight attendants all called out!!! Seriously. Go to the front they put me on the next flight at 6pm (8 hours from the original flight I was booked for) That one gets delayed 2 hours and at this point the plane is over booked so I figured I'll just give up my seat and fly another day. Go to the front counter dude says the next available seat is in 12 days!!! And even if I want to change my flight the manger is on break. He turns to the guy next to him and in Spanish asked where she went and he said she went to the house. She is the only manger in the airport that has a code to change anything including giving my money back. So I book a flight with United and go back to the house. Worst experience ever. I'm in the military and fly constantly and have never had this horrible experience."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Pros: "Pilot's politeness"
Cons: "Nothing given the behavior of Denise and her co-attendant."
Cons: "The flight going to Florida was delayed several times, then it was canceled. They would even pay got a cab home. The trip back to NewRk was, you guessed, delayed 2 times- very cold on plan- paid for exit seats going to Florida but was reassigned other seats, never was refunded the extra money I paid for them"
Pros: "Nothing redemptive was done by Spirit or the staff."
Cons: "The flight was canceled after being moved forward and then delayed. Spirit personnel at the desk didn't know the flight was even canceled and then, when they freceived the update, finally offered either the next flight out or a refund. However, no vouchers were offered even though the next flight out was a full day later so hotels and meals were at a loss to all customers, in addition to the full day delay in travel plans. I also never received an email notification of the cancellation and only received the flight delay email an hour after I received a gate change notification that had the flight time crossed out."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight. They lied and said that they emailed me, then one representative said that they called me that to was a lie. We were checking at the counter, that's when we found out. There were others that were shocked & disappointed also. We missed our family reunion in Orlando they didn't help us at all! I won't use Spirit Airlines again! We should be compensated but no one's trying to listen when we were calling customer service"
Cons: "Very disorganized system to check in. Pilot also kept rocking plane during flight or turning sideways abruptly. First time I've ever gotten sick on a plane and I have flown plenty of times!"
Cons: "Fees for everything, poorly organized boarding, poor crew service, poor attitudes! Flight itself was flown OK"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "They sold my seat and closed the flight- never flew. I have to pay three times for another flight to get home."
Pros: "Flight going from FLL to EWR( Newark) on Saturday morning was ok. However, return flight from EWR to FLL the next day was a complete disaster. Would never fly spirit EVER!! I had to buy a new ticket with another airline ( united) for a one-way ticket($370). No reimbursement. NEVER SPIRIT( the hit or miss airlines!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Great flight and crew. Myrtle beach airport is wonderful to wait in!"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to Newark being overbooked. 1 hour 20 minutes is too much. Same flight yesterday was equally late. What a waste of time."
Cons: "Don't have any intertainmen in the flight....TV no snacks you have to paid it.."
Cons: "My flight 876 was delayed from 6:00pm-9:15pm.... Then the flight departure changed to 7:30pm and them to 6:50pm. So basically one has to sit at the gate for 3 hours or miss your flight which I almost did and I'm sure may people did. This situation was handled completely improperly. I went to the counter and they told me to go to jet blue??? Then I waited in line for 45 minutes at Jet Blue and they had no idea what i was even talking about. Nobody could help at me at Spirit of explain what was going on. I called spirit and was on hold for 30 minutes, then finally I go someone who said look at the monitors....they can't help me. I have never flown Spirit airlines and I never will again. The worst customer service and it just makes not sense to tell the people it's leaving at 9pm then switch the flight to 6:50, if giving an explanation that may help people understand what is going on and to stay close to the gate, them we didn't depart until 8:15 anyhow, after boarding the plane sat for an hour and 20 minutes. As a new customer this was the most horrendous airline I have ever traveled, and I travel alot. Katie Cassidy"
Cons: "55 for a carry on? Outrageous. 3 for water? 17 to choose a seat? Flight attendant had all the charm of a russian gulag mistress. No wonder spirit is at the bottom of the barrel. And the credit card annoyance and trying to be "awesome". Give me a serious break"
Cons: "worst airline they offered me a $7 compensation for a 4 hour wait at Miami airport"
Pros: "Horrible!!!! I asked them to print my check in They made me wait for 45 minutes & then told me that it is too late , go on 1that flight. They wanted another $100 to put me on the afternoonflight which was too late for me. I ended up buyinga new tickets in United. I want refund for my ticket. I will never use this company again!!!!!"
Cons: "Horrible!!!! I asked them to print my check in. They made me wait for 45 minutes when I complainedthey called a supervisor & then told me that it is too late go on that flight. They wanted another $100 to put me on the afternoonflight which was too late for me. I ended up buying a new tickets on United. I will dispute the charge on my credit card . I want refund for my ticket. I will never use this company again!!!!!"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Pretty much the whole flight"
Cons: "No wifi, when I asked for a glass of water to drink I was told I had to buy a bottle. Had I known how cheap Spirit airlines is I wouldn't have flown them. They will be my last choice of an airline. Next time I fly. !!!!!!"
Cons: "Super cheapo airline - makes me feel impoverished from the second I step on board."
Pros: "Flight was on time and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence was awful for much of the flight, and although that can't always be avoided, reassurance from the pilot or flight attendants would have been much appreciated. Flight attendants carried on conversations loudly and were rude to travelers who wanted to move to empty seats."
Pros: "Good fare and crew"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "That's what you get for a $50 ticket."
Cons: "The Flight was cancelled without notice!!!! Counter staff was nonchalant about the situation but did offer a flight that would head out 12 hours later. I am Not a fan!!"
