Pros: "The general experience was mostly the same as usual except for the extremely long delay caused by weather (out of the airline's control)."
Cons: "JetBlue staff at ATL never once updated passengers on the delay. The overhead space filled up too quickly during boarding and I was forced to check carry-on without time to secure or gather my effects. JetBlue baggage claim staff at JFK were then purposefully misleading and evasive."
Cons: "Double verification at JFK due to booking via agent. They stopped the travelers for dou le verification which they have verified all the douments double time"
Pros: "The crew was great! Excellent service!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Our flight out of Atlanta was delayed twice, and eventually cancelled due to mechanical problems - this caused us to miss our connecting flight from JFK to TLV. We had to rescheduled our flights (slow and convoluted route): Atlanta, Boston, Newark, Tel Aviv. We are presently in Boston."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, on-boarding was easy and fast, everything was clean, and there were nice touches like a sleep mask and ear plugs on every seat."
Cons: "The leg room was better than in other flights, but that's not saying much and the seats were very uncomfortable and for such a long flight, it was deeply uncomfortable overall. My knee joints still hurt two days later."
Pros: "The landing was excellent. The crew just okay , not warm or serving well."
Cons: "The movie too old movie and the device hard to use e.g. change the movie from channel 1 from first movie to the second movie. The attendant not give my request (water) until I need to walk myself to the back."
Pros: "Pilot was great as were the crew members. Food was fine."
Cons: "Earbud Jack was broken on my seat and the screen in my husband’s seat didn’t work. It was a turbulent flight and it would have been good to have the distraction of the entertainment."
Pros: "I really like that the pilot came out and entrpduced him self. Early do pilots ever do that . he seemed to really enjoy his job and was very appreciative of his flight attendants. The flight was extremely smooth!!! I couldn’t be happier"
Cons: "Had no problems"
Pros: "Amazing flight attendants"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "I really love flying Jet Blue. I don't mean to criticize, the following is written in an effort for improvement: The hour-long delay and the long wait time on the runway. A passenger got up to use the bathroom right before we were going to take off - we had to wait for her. Another passenger pressed the flight attendant call button right after lift-off. All of the food for purchase was sold out by the time it got to the back of the plane. And I could be wrong, but I don't remember going through safety instructions because we were waiting for a while and then had to hurry when we got clearance from air traffic control."
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "We wasnt told how to use the tvs and where to put earbuds."
Pros: "Extra space seats. The crew. The food. The landing! Pre-board bag check at gate - asking for volunteers."
Cons: "The cabin temp was too cold. The entertainment was awful."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Plane needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "This was the most comfortable airplane ride I’ve taken in such a long time. I’m not even sure why I’ve never flown Jet Blue. I wish they went to more places because I’d use them for all these overseas trips I wanna take lol. Snacks, water, television, a smiling seemingly genuinely happy crew. What more could you ask for?"
Pros: "average flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "There is no online check in! Kayak sells multi-airline flights with airlines from different alliances and that does not allow you to check in online. We got to airport at 3:45 am- no one at the check in counter, employees finally arrived at 4 am, checked in, but then we don’t have seats asssigned! We get to the gate and wait-wait-wait until almost 5am and finally the employees were able to find someone willing to move so that myself and kids don’t get seats in emergency exit row. Nuts. Very unpleasant(not the employees, those were nice-it’s the check in and seat assignment policies)."
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "There wasn’t a thing that needed to be fixed. Future airlines."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everything went official"
Cons: "The film did not work"
Cons: "Notified flight was delayed over 2 hrs.. while at airport outside of screening an announcement that they are boarding our flight.this is an hour plus prior to the time on the board. When I realized that my boarding pass was no longer on my phone I had to go to get a pass. Male/ White older, was totally negative and not helpful except to tell me he could get me out the next day. Other workers picked up the ball and got me a pass and escorted me through tsa... then we sit on the plane for another half hr before leaving. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The fact that I was informed of the delays and the gate change by way of email."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay"
Pros: "The crew was professional and did a good job."
Cons: "The plane arrived late from another location. I understand this was probably out of JetBlue’s hands. The plane seemed really dirty. I’m used to flying Delta out of Atlanta so this was my first JB experience. I was really disappointed with the condition and cleanliness of the inside of the plane."
Pros: "The entire experience"
Cons: "Couldn't find any thing to grouch about"
Pros: "Jet Blue was GREAT- as usual. I want you to know that getting through security in ATL airport was an ordeal. Incredibly long lines, disorganized (a sign clearly said, TSA Pre-check- line up here) and then the people managing the lines yelling at us (and this is an observation) because they wanted us lined up further back. This was baffling because the actual line into the TSA space was empty at that point. I think the ATL security staff could all benefit from some further training about to work with people effectively AND ATL airport needs to look at their systems. I know it's a busy airport, but there has to be something better than what they are doing now!"
Pros: "The professional crew"
Pros: "Nothing at all. Worse experience in my life."
Cons: "My flight was delay about 8 times of not more I end up getting to my destinations 5 hours later. It was the worse experiencing of my life I would never ever in my life would flight JetBlue ever again."
Pros: "The flight and crew were totally fine. I slept the whole time."
Cons: "There was not a single JetBlue employee at the Denver airport until exactly 2 hours before the flight. There were many passengers (upwards of 20 and many with small children) waiting around to check their bags and unable to access the food/bathroom/go through security. Everyone was confused and upset. While I understand that there are no flights for several hours prior to the late-night flight I was on, that does not mean that there is no need for an employee presence. Many people arrived multiple hours early because the most common destinations for Denver travelers are the mountain ski towns and the last departures of the shuttles that run from the mountains to the airport leave at 3:00pm. Therefore a large number of passengers arrive by 6:00pm for midnight flights and are left waiting in the check-in area until 10:00pm. The situation was made worse by the poor communication--there were signs saying that checkin was open only from 8:00am-11:00am, which left everyone very confused, given that we were on evening flights. There were many angry people sitting on the floor around the JetBlue counter."
Pros: "Ek 202"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled 4hrs after being boarded at JFK. We understand that such things happen. It’s the situation and handling after was very unprofessional. we were told to collect our bags and go to check in counter and collect our next bookings but instead after collecting check ins we were just given meal ticket and hotel address and given a toll free number to call which is very inappropriate. It should become your responsibility to rebook ya but not leaving it on us to call some number and wait. Though I called and I was told that I was not deboarded to rebook me. For which I tried to go and find an Emirates personnel who refused to talk to the Emirates guy on phone to explain and would just refuse to talk to me. Imagine yourself carrying two check ins and a carry one and running around just to try to get somebody to answer. Mr. Munit on phone was kind enough to be on talk and hold for about 40mins with me. It still ended up unable to book at that time. I was going to India for two day period and my one day had to be spent over in JFK. As humans it’s not the technical difficulty that was an issues it’s the Emirates crews at jfk inability to properly respond and answer arrogantly was the issue. One person instead of answering the questions of an old man was very rude and just blubbered “can’t you just listen to me” that was very inappropriate. It should be her responsibility to listen first. I have always flew Emirates and inflight crew are always very patient and good. This experience makes me think otherwise."
Pros: "Plenty of Leg room and overhead compartments"
Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed making it so I and several others had less than 4 minutes to catch our next flight. The flight attendants wouldn’t help us at all. Instead of having us come to the front of the plane to exit first we had to ask the rest of the passengers if they didn’t mind letting us through to catch our flight. I have severe psoriatic arthritis and I had to sprint to my next gate that had been changed making it much farther away from our arrival gate. Now I get to spend my vacation in pain trying to recover."
Pros: "This flight was delayed when we were on the runway due to air traffic control. They estimated it could take an hour or more to take off. I told the flight attendants that I had a connecting flight in NY and they both helped look to see if there was a later flight I could get on, if we didnt make it in time. When they determined my connecting flight was the last one going out of NY that night, I asked if I could possibly de-plane if we were going to take off more than an hour late since I would surely miss my flight and and I would rather go home and sleep in my own bed than get a hotel in NY. They were genuinely and sincerely interested in helping me, so they spoke with the captain and updated the passengers since some other people had the same issue. The capain surprisingly agreed to roll back to the jetway to me off if we were going to be delayed passed the time for connection. Thirty minutes later, we were in the air and I made my connecting flight. The flight attendant even gave me earbuds to watch TV free of charge!!!! What an absolutely amazing flight crew!!!!!"
Cons: "Let me preface this by saying that prior to this experience I generally though highly of JetBlue. To change my opinion of them, JetBlue had to monumentally screw up, which they did. This was the worst experience I have had on any airline, ever. Why I am mad: - I had a 4.5 hour delay due to maintenance that caused me to miss a flight to India. The 4.5 delay was on a 50 minute flight from Portland, ME to JFK. I nearly could have driven faster than JetBlue got me to New York. - Because of my missed flight to India, I missed day 1 of a two day wedding of which I am a wedding party member - In order to get to India in time for day 2, I had to book a new flight on a different airline for an additional $1000, on top of what I paid for my original flight to India - I was originally told by JetBlue in Portland, ME that they would offer me a reimbursement for the Portland flight, a hotel in NYC, and a travel credit for the trouble. While not totally satisfying since I was still going to miss a day of the wedding, I thought this to be a fair enough offer. - However, at the JetBlue desk in JFK, they completely reversed course. I was told that all they could offer me $100 travel credit. No reimbursement for Portland flight. No compensation for the extra $1,000 flight I had to book. And best of all, no hotel in New York, I was stranded at JFK for the night. I spoke with a supervisor at the desk who repeatadely told me that JetBlue had done their job in getting me to JFK and that they were not responsible for anything after I arrived to JFK. A 4.5 hour delay on a 50 minute flight is bad. Being steadfastly unwilling to compensate for missed flights is worse. And stranding me in JFK after telling me they would offer me a hotel room is just plain unacceptable. My family will be cancelling their JetBlue credit cards and we will look elsewhere for flights in the future."
Cons: "Wouldn't let us on the flight when there was plenty of time to get there. Manager was arrogant and slow - didn't care. Poor policies at that airport."

Pros: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Like the “lanes” for boarding; however, there was no announcement so some people did not know and did not line up and just cut in between those who had. Biscoff cookies are always appreciated."
Cons: "The WiFi was very cumbersome to use, despite the instructions. The monitors had a marked delay when touched, making the entertainment a challenge to use."

Pros: "The crew was excellent"

Cons: "Crew could have proactively provided more water. I was really thirsty mid-flight and had to stand up and ask for water myself."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day.

Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and worked hard."
Cons: "Seats were very basic and not as good as the low cost carrier I normally fly out of the UK. Very old and noisy aircraft. Seemed little control over how much hand luggage passengers were bringing onto the aircraft."
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"

Pros: "...NOTHING! I WILL NEVER PURCHASE A TICKET ON FRONTIER AGAIN!!!.........NEVER!!!"

Pros: "staff was professional"
Cons: "SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE!!!"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Poor service; carry on bag you had to buy; email saying that we had to show up 2+ hours before the flight, which meant I had to be at airport at 3:30 AM, for a 6:30 AM domestic flight; arrive 1 hr late into NY; misleading marketing about costs of flight"
Pros: "What's the point of charging cheap fares if your seating will suck, you will chrage me FOR ME TO CARRY MY OWN BAG and on top not even a soda is free??? Nothing to eat on the plane unless I am ok with Oreos and Beef jerky? Who told the CEO that this is a good strategy to get people to come back to it... NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "Generally on time flight for departure; return flight arrived a bit earlier then planned; crew was very good! Captain Kirk had skills with his landing."
Cons: "Seats were too cramped, as well as the underseat space; felt more like the airline was intentionally pimping us for more money, by NOT clearly explaining the carry on fees (if any); maintenance issue."
Cons: "literally the worst airline experience I've ever had. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "I'll repeat"
Pros: "Hated the entire experience!"
Cons: "Flying with Frontier had to be one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I arrived at the airport to find that they could not check me in when in fact my original Atlanta to New York plane had not left. The agent lied and made it seem like the plane left so I purchased a $99 ticket to Atlanta to Trenton, NJ, a local airport that was 1 hour and 46 minutes away from New York. I purchased the ticket and went to the LGA gate just in case and called the 801 number to be rebooked back on my original flight. The rep on the phone shared I would not be charged the $99 but today, 1/6/17 the charge posted on my credit card. I had to go to Trenton, NJ, send $33 for the NJ Transit, plus 2 Uber rides totaling $53."
Pros: "the seating for which I paid $20 was spacious"
Cons: "I think this flight only leaves once in the evening from LGA and they couldn't get that right. I didn't realize there was a fee for carry-on and since I paid the fee round-trip, I might as well paid another airline that charged slightly higher for the entire trip. No complimentary drinks or snacks - really!"
Cons: "It was bad enough that we had a delayed flight but while we waited for 6 hrs. No one gave us water or anything. And then when we went on the flight the only thingthat was offered for free was drink we still had to pay for peanuts. Never again. You can't be the only flight out of NY and have NO Pilot available. The ticket was cheap but not worth it. I wish I would've seen the reviews before I booked"
Pros: "Everyone was super nice."
Cons: "The seats were to straight with no cushions. There was no way to adjust the seats."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the stewardess apologized after she realized that she assumed wrong."
Cons: "A stewardess yelled to get my dad off the plane because he was "drunk". This was not the case, he is on medication and needed to take it. I was very hurt and embarrassed because I was already concerned for my dad and there were many people on the plane. It was disappointing."
Pros: "That I was greeted that's it"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight seats and tables are unmaintained"
Pros: "I didn't like it all I was booked for a job in NYC which I'm late getting to the staff was really rude"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "Had to choose my seat and pay for it"
Pros: "Quick and to the point. No messing around. Friendly workers."
Cons: "Paying for the bags."
Cons: "It was NEVER CLEAR to me when I booked the flight that I would later be charged $30 for a carry-on at the time of check-in. It may have been in some fine print somewhere (and even finer print for mobile phone users), but this is outright DECEPTIVE. Also upon check-in, I was led to believe that I could only choose a seat for a $10-$20 surcharge. It was NOT CLEAR that if I allowed random seat selection I could avoid this surcharge. SHAME ON YOU for HIDDEN COSTS."
Cons: "There was no clearly stated in the online booking instructions that a carry-on baggage is not included in the ticket total price. It happened to be a very unpleasant surprise during the check in."
Pros: "Quick boarding/deboarding, fast flight. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Cheap feeling seats, get what you pay for, a budget flight. No amenities beyond basics. Also, every seat is 'premium' and costs above your ticket value. Just tell me how much the flight will be up front, or provide a range. $7 for back seats, up to $30 for front seats. Also, do your homework. Carry-ons cost $30 each way."
Pros: "That I didn't miss my flight"
Cons: "The lady at the counter was very nasty not helpful at all. Then the plane took off a hour late..."
Pros: "It was a direct flight to my destination"
Cons: "They charge for everything : carry on , snacks , beverages ... Overall the flight wasn't that cheap !"
Cons: "Long wait times to drop off a luggage, late departure, long boarding time, no snacks, small hard seats, pay for everything"
Cons: "Comfort, they let standby passengers board and then took them off again once regular passengers showed up"
Pros: "Safe flight."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable. Took forever to take off. Took forever to get off the plane. Had to pay for everything on the flight."
Pros: "Price was slightly lower than other airlines"
Cons: "No water was offered and seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The pilot was nice and the plane was very clean."
Cons: "One flight attendant was yelling all over the plane instead of politely walking up to guests and informing them that the overhead baggage holders were full. Also, there seem to be a mix up with seating as before the plane doors closed, this same flight attendant allowed a guest to move to another seat, only for the ticket attendant to walk back on the plane and inform the flight attendant that she needed those seats. I usually fly with Delta, American Airlines, and in my 30 years of traveling have I not seen such unprofessionalism with regards to miscounted seats and the way the flight attendant handled those customers."
Cons: "Extra charges"
Cons: "We were stuck at the airport for over 8 hours. Nobody gave us any information for a while. Nobody gave us any voucher for food or anything. I missed a really important event because I was stuck at the airport."
Pros: "Knowing up front before booking you will pay for everything. In the end the low price issn't really that low once you pay for everything else."
Pros: "I need and want a refund."
Cons: "Barbara, the manager at Hartfield/Jackson in Atlanta is very rude and has no compassion or interest in customer service."
Cons: "Frontier charges $30 for every carry on. No where in the processing of purchasing our tickets did it tell us about that extra charge! Once we went to sign in the day before the flight or asked is about our luggage & then charged us the $30!"
Cons: "I paid $40 for a carryon bag that was not verified when boarding. In essence it was a waste of money."
Cons: "Charge me 65 for 1 bag"
Pros: "I like that the plane didn't crash. Other than that Frontier's service, from paying for your carry on and beverages and the ticket agents to the flight attendants was, I imagine, worse than a greyhound bus ride. I was able to download the frontier app and get my boarding pass, and make the flight (drenched in sweat from running through the airport) as they were closing the boarding door. Thank god for cardio and determination."
Cons: "There were five ticket agents at the counter when I got to the counter (an hour before my flight). All five of them were helping one person and talking to each other for about 10 minutes. Then one split off to help the next person in line - or just to get a laugh by telling the couple they weren't make their flight and they weren't going to drop anymore bags to the plane because we were close to the 45 minute cutoff before the departure time. Perhaps if they had been working as a team rather than a gang the whole lot of us would have been checked in on time. When I got on the plane (after asking folks in security if I could get in front of them and running like a madman through the terminal) the flight attendant was the pinnacle of passive aggressive annoyance. This was my first and probably last ticket I buy flying frontier."
"My flight was supposed to leave at around 8pm and was delayed until around midnight 2 nights in a row and finally cancelled… the third evening it was delayed until around 10:30 and we finally were able to fly out. The single worst flying experience I’ve ever had. They did refund me for my flight but this was the absolute worst customer service I have ever had. I will NEVER fly Spirit Airlines again!"
"Terrible way of bag checking in. 40lb bag limit is a bad business model for travelers when 50 was from another carrier. 2 lines to pay for excess weight. Long line to pay for it. No guidance from staff as to direct ppl in different loading zones to not block the lanes when boarding."
"This was my first flight on Spirit Airlines and I was a little leary and had low expectations. . . however, I was pleasantly surprised! The crew was very pleasant and cheerful! Seats were perfect and we took off on time and landed 15 mins early!! It was a fairly short flight <2. There was no entertainment and snacks were available for purchase! The price for the flight was great, it exceeded my expectations and I will definitely fly SA again!!"
"This flight got cancelled at 3am the morning of my 9am flight. Their site crashed while trying to rebook and it deleted my credit without booking the new flight. It took me more than a week to get confirmation of my refund. Spend the extra hundred bucks to fly American or delta or whatever."
"We really like traveling with Spirit, staff is very friendly and make you feel very confortable"
"Everything is bad"
"This was a terrible experience as a first time spirit traveler. The flight was delayed for 5 hours and the agents did not verbally communicate with anyone regarding the delays. Last minute gate change was provided 15 minutes prior to boarding to only have us wait until 5:30 to board the flight. Complimentary snack and drinks could have been provided for the extreme inconvenience. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "The crew workers were amazing nice pilot was driving safe amazing customer services !"
Cons: "Y’all did amazing !!!!"
Cons: "Boarding process should be better, the seats should be more comfortable, no extra fees should be imposed. All around terrible Flight. Will never fly spirit again ."
Pros: "Flight was on time and very smooth"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly"
Cons: "A glass of water without using a credit card."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Better seat"
Pros: "Crew not nice! Very rude and not helpful"
Cons: "They charge money for everything and not help"
Pros: "The worst company EVER"
Cons: "The worst company EVER"
Pros: "Arrived to our destination (DFW) on time"
Cons: "I didn’t have a problem flying Spirit Airlines because on their site they had advertised that the middle seats of their flights were going to be left open for passenger safety due to COVID-19. I was in for a surprise once we boarded because they had the plane packed. Majority, if not all, of the rows were packed. I do not recommend and will not be flying Spirit again. It’s not worth the little money saved."
Cons: "Knowing I wasn’t on the plane and stop emailing"
Cons: "Not have someone in the middle seat during a pandemic."
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, Boarding was quick, everyone was safe and informative"
Cons: "Way too many passengers"
Cons: "My second time flying Sprit and one of the worst experiences ever. I paid $300 for a one-way from ATL to EWR. My seat was sunken and had an imprint. My tray table kept falling down. The seat was dirty and had crumbs in it. Very uncomfortable. Don’t waste your money!"
Pros: "The inflight wasnt that bad."
Cons: "The baggage policies of Spirit airlines are simply the worst. The online baggage fee is different, the amount told to me on the phone was different. The staff is clueless about their baggage pricing. They charged me double for a bag that should the allowable dimensions shown online."
Pros: "Crew and seats were better then expected"
Cons: "The price for bags was just ridiculous. It actually made me not want to fly Spirit."
Pros: "Easily the best Spirit flight I’ve ever flown"
Pros: "Flight took off and landed. Glad it was my wife sitting next to me."
Cons: "Carry on bag? Extra $. So we combined our regular carry on into one and checked the bag. Price for the one bag was as much as my ticket. Return flight ticket counter agent SO hates her job. She was miserable. We were standing at the stanchion, waiting for the next agent to call us. She just stood there. Made eye contact, smiled and gestured to ask if she was open... Blank stare. Minutes later we walked up and she was open. Charged me even more for bag than flight down. Didn't buy anything on trip and bag was magically 15 pounds heavier than the flight down. Also got "hit up" for money by fellow passenger. Don't mind helping, but story was suspect. Anyway, I'm only going to use Spirit as a last resort in the future."
Cons: "Second flight I booked with them, both were delayed. The second one was supposed to leave at 10 AM I received an email at around 8AM that the flight was delayed until 2 PM. They said I had to still be there an hour before the original scheduled flight time? I asked when I was actually able to get someone on the phone, why do I need to sit in the airport for 5 Hours? After being very persistent I was told that sometimes Spirit doesn't have gates available, so they want you to sit there and if they happen to get a gate before 2PM they will board and leave. This may work for some but not me. I won't be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "The customer service was incredible. I knew what I was getting in to regarding no entertainment, smallish seats, etc. but I did not find the seats uncomfortable and brought my own entertainment. I will travel with Spirit again."
Cons: "I was a bit late getting to Newark, but I only had a carry-on, so needed to grab my boarding pass and just get through security. When I finally found the Spirit Airlines counter in the basement, their electronic kiosk wouldn't work. There was a huge line, so the Spirit employees ignored me. I could not get my boarding pass, even though I would have had time to get through security and run to my gate!!! I had to buy a separate flight on United so I could make it to this wedding. Any refund would be appreciated! Spirit Airlines is horrible!!!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The airline emailed customers that the flight was delayed by almost two hours. We arrived 1 hour 45 min before the new departure. The website still said the delayed time. When we were trying to check in the service desk told us the plane was being boarded and the delay was no longer needed. We had to take later flight and the girl joked that "at least we weren't as bad as united airlines because they dragged someone off." Terrible experience. There is definitely a reason it's a budget airline. Will never fly with them as long as I live."
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience!!! Stinky way to end a vacation!! From the moment we entered the terminal, SPIRIT handled everything poorly. They had 5 agents working to handle 5-6hundred passengers. There was only one agent walking the floor answering questions. He was nice enough to me but in his frustration, he was very rude to other passengers. People were getting nervous that their planes were boarding and they still hadn't checked their bags. This caused people to try and cut in front of other people in line and of course those passengers became angry. After finally getting through that mess, we got to our gate in a different terminal (which was also confusing because our boarding pass said terminal 3 which we went to first only to find out that we needed to go to Terminal 4 to check in and then walk over to terminal 3 to board). Once we boarded the plane they told us that the computer system was down so they could not put in their flight planes so they let us off the plane. We re-boarded the plane and finally landed home around 2:00 in the morning. By the time we got our luggage and drove home (20 minutes) it was 3:15. Overall Stinky!!!!!"
Cons: "We checked in at the kiosk and then got in the baggage drop line and it was an hour long. Fortunately we were two hours ahead of schedule so we made our flight no problem. The poor couple in front of us missed their flight and was told that it was their fault by the front desk. The front desk person said that they had called for their flight and they should've responded. I can tell you that no one ever mentioned any flight. It wasn't like the line was to check in, it was only to drop the bags and it took forever. Very poor service and I feel so sorry for the people that we're headed to Texas and Missed their 7 o'clock flight. I find it also misadvertisement that we paid $49 for the flight one way and then had to pay $55 for the carry-on. Really the flight was for $104. Next time I will check for all and any options instead of Spirit and be willing to pay more money To go with another airline."
Cons: "Getting our boarding pass to print was a nightmare. I kept getting password invalid. I was told I would be sent an e-mail to reset my password. NOT! made that request 6 times before I waited 30 minutes to get a rep on the phone. Was told I had to sign up to be a Free Spirit Member to get my boarding pass. No where does it say that that is what you had to do . The rep asked if I had booked through them? I told I booked through Kayak and he gave me attitude. Kind of huffed and I thought he mumbled "you get what you pay for" So I signed up and got our boarding pass. Coming back AGAIN we couldn't get our boarding pass. The rep at Cabana Bay got a Spirit rep on the phone I told her I was a Free Spirit Member and I gave her my member # and she me told I didn't exist in the system, but she would send me an e-mail to change my password Of course that didn't come through. I put Sara, from the front desk, back on the phone and between her and the rep we got our boarding pass. We started our vacation upset and aggregated. Ended it the same way."
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination in time and as scheduled."
Cons: "There was no indication anywhere in the reservation process of the costs of bag checks and the "privilege" of a carry on. I was also never sent an email prompting me to check in online and check bags there. (I'm told it's rather cheap if you do it that way) Instead, I was greeted with a 49 dollar fee for my carry on, and 53 dollar fee for my checked bag. That was bumped up another 30 dollars when I discovered bags above 45 lbs are charged extra on spirit. I ended spending more than twice the value of my ticket just for bags, for markups I was never told of and could not of reasonably anticipated as a consumer. This, combined with less than professional conduct from spirit flight attendants, fellow passengers, and the ridiculously uncomfortable conditions on the plane, means I will never be flying with spirit again, and will trust kayak much less. As a comprehensive trip planning service, kayak should be able to generate plane travel costs, and have options to include associated costs such as baggage, with the price of the ticket in flight price tracking. This is a necessary feature for any company that provides a service like Kayak."
Cons: "Planes were dirty and were charged for carry on which I found to be a bit ridiculous. The money you save on the ticket ended up going to pay towards luggage so it would have been better going through a nicer airline. Planes really had nothing to offer as far as comfort. On the way home the plane had a 2 hour delay and no real customer service was given to a accommodate for the inconvincoence. Also had an issue with the luggage keeping us in the airport way longer than needed. Would not fly with spirit again"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendants. Very helpful and grateful they were willing to help me relocate to another seat forward of the rear."
Cons: "When I went online to purchase a seat the only one showing available was 28E at the far back of the plane. When I entered the random choice the assignment was 26C.... why was this one not shown??? And why couldn't I purchase a seat forward of the rear??? This flight was half empty. Thankfully the attendant moved me up to Row 11 which was totally empty. I do NOT like sitting in the back of the plane and that is why I try to purchase a seat over or forward of the wing. NOT a happy camper over this."
Cons: "Online check-in did not work, app check-in did not work, kiosk check-in did not work. Despite efforts to save money, I was forced to pay over $110 in additional fees. Service counter attendants were not friendly. I asked if I could fly standby on an earlier flight since I had gotten to the airport 4 hours early. I was told "This is not Southwest, you can't get on an earlier plane without paying $120 for it". Flight was changed to a new gate but wasn't updated on the monitor. I had to check flight aware to see what gate we were at. Flight attendants were rude and boasted about being the youngest flight crew in the sky, which is nothing to boast about. There are many veterans of the sky that exhibit amazing customer service and flight expertise. This Moto degrades those who have spent 20 + years in the sky making sure we are safe and comfortable. I would rather have a former fighter pilot with combat experience flying my plane. So spirit airlines, do I think you being young is an advantage over the other airlines, No. I care about customer service and safety. And I have yet to feel that from your airline. From the check-in counter to the flight attendants, the staff treats customers without respect and then charges you for it. I'm done."
Cons: "I fly a lot. I took spirit because of the great deal I got, but will never fly them again no matter what. I will pay more for a flight because of the poor customer service. My flight was cancelled after being delayed after 10 mins. This is was about my 10th time flying the airlines, I was trying to give them a chance, and every time have had serious problems. I work customer service and understand how annoying these message are and realize there will probably be nothing done about how I feel and the poor service I received, but really this was a horrible experience. Lucky I am savy at finding new flights. I stood in line to change mine while on the phone with spirit and lucky cancelled the flight with spirit. I had to rebook with a different airlines. The difference between the flight was $240. My husband rebooked it for me while I was on the phone with spirit. Never again will I fly this airlines, no matter what I do!"
Pros: "Never fly this airline, they are horrible! I called several times about my flight because I knew I would be late trying to make the flight and they were rude. Customer Service is horrible. They cheat people out of their money smh. Terrible. I'm currently looking to sue!! Don't fly with them. No matter how cheap it is. Fly with Aleigant or Frontier first. Least they won't just keep your ticket money if you miss a flight they will make amends. SPIRIT is tacky, classless, and just overall a terrible airline. They need to be out of business. Seriously. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
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: "The flight attendants salvaged the experience. I think weather delayed the flight, but the info provided before getting on the plane just made it seem like the pilots just weren't there. Couple that with discussion about how often Spirit is not on time a lot, led to a frustrating experience. Finish that off with boarding onto a plane that wasn't running, a/c was off and pilots still weren't there. Flight attendants jumped on it. Apologized for the inconvenience multiple times, kept everyone updated on efforts to get a/c started, passed out water, very friendly. Kudos also to the pilots who came in from Vegas and were supposed to be done for the day. They got on our plane and flew us to Tampa. I would guess that they didn't have to do that and if they had not, we may have been further delayed. I generally fly Delta. Had the on board experience not been what it was, I would be a one & done flyer with your airline. I will try you again based on the actions of those mentioned above."
Cons: "Gate personnel could have provided additional details and communicated better. It was just like, well we're delayed....sorry. Deal with it."
Pros: "There was a Hispanic gentlemen who told jokes over the intercom and was very nice to passengers"
Cons: "In general, the flight crew seemed jittery, restless, chattery. They seemed unaware that it was an early morning flight, and passengers might be trying to sleep. The lights were turned on halfway through the flight, which seemed inappropriate for those who wanted a quiet morning to sleep. I was in the last seat in the back, and the flight crew would keep shifting around their own luggage in a disruptive way, chatting at a higher volume than appropriate for sleeping passengers. And collecting trash every five minutes seems a bit much. Overall, the experience was the worst flight experience I ever had."
Cons: "Check in at Atlanta airport was a mess - there were several lines and it was not clear which line i should take to check in for my flight. Despite i arrived 2 hours before take off, I almost missed the flight."
Pros: "I like getting out of the airport and vowing to never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit's computer system had an "error" which marked me as a security risk. I had to go through intensive security screening TWICE. I was given a hand written ticket that was not honored at the gate stating their computer error has blocked me from flying. With this status I was unable to take my flight or rebook one. Luckily I got a full refund. Definately not worth the hassle and airport drama I will NEVER fly this airline again. I feel sorry for their employees who have to deal with such a shitty system."
Cons: "This is the ONLY airline I have ever used that did not check to see if any missing passengers were going through checkpoints. They left about 25 of us behind because we were stuck in TSA. The flight that left later to Detroit did the same thing to their passengers. The staff was incredibly rude, if they rolled their eyes more than they did they may have fallen out of their heads. They had the attitudes of spoiled teens that were working as punishment for something. The flight itself was alright, but even the attendants were unpleasant. I ended up stuck in the airport alone for seven hours, some people were told they had to wait until the next day! I've flown many times and this is the ONLY airline I have ever seen that did such a thing. I will NEVER use them again, nor will I recommend them."
