The flight was uneventful...a good thing; the service was ordinary, the seat room was minimal, was given a middle seat instead of the window I reserved but the agent did give me one when I requested out.
Trulygreat Stewards and stewardesses
My bag made it to my destination on an earlier flight, so it would’ve been nice to have been notified it was being held so I didn’t waste time waiting for it not to show up on the carousel.
We were traveling with a 91 year old in a wheelchair. AA was very attentive.
Long wait for de-icing.
All good, flight attendants could have been a little nicer though.
Seat cushions were very hard
Having to pay for seats in order to sit together is really lowlife.
Absolutely no staff on board who were helpful. Actually they disappeared. Long delay. Garbage on seats & floor. With the coronavirus we expected at least a clean plane. Very disappointed in customer service. Our luggage came soaking wet & most of our clothes damaged
They charged unexpected fee and the hand carry did not allow even if its small bag!
Plane not clean
Your service is horrible . The staff is so rude and unprofessional. They are not polite at all.
The flight was canceled, and Spirit couldn’t get me on another one for over 2 days. I will literally never set foot on a Spirit plane again.
Waited on runway for over 2hrs after landing after having flight delayed for almost 3 hrs very dissatisfied with the whole organization of the airline and airport
There should not charge carry on bag
Very upset with the delays and gate changes. Will not use American again.
Delay delay delay delayed. Got on the plane got back off the plane supposed to get back on don't know yet
