Flight was delayed by a half hour out of Boston. DIRECTV did not work during the entire flight. The middle bathroom became nonfunctional halfway through the flight. The stewards and stewardesses made one pass through the plane during the entire six hour flight. This was an overall mediocre flight. Also, myPreviously selected seat assignments for my wife and myself were canceled and I had to pay an upgrade of $139 each and order to avoid middle seatsBecause of the change in airplanes
More cushion in the seats
Cons: "Nothing... great flight, uncrowded flight, plenty of extra seats to stretch out. Seat were very comfy and spacious which I loved even got a full can of soda unlike the usual half a cup and done lol. Would definitely fly Jet Blue again and prefer also. Way better than the other carriers."
Cons: "Service was the best!!! Eatup cafe option wasn’t printed on the menu. Elf the movie was an option on my tv but wouldn’t actually play."
Cons: "For a two hour tarmac wait could have served some snacks!"
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Pros: "Jetblue is my now number 1 choice for flying. They offer amazing comfort and value."
Cons: "Including free headphones, but not a deal breaker."
Pros: "Crew was great, seat very comfy with good legroom."
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "My experiences flying with JetBlue have been consistently great! Delays happen & are of course out of the crew’s control, but offering free snacks while we waited & the efficient boarding process, along with the free movie & TV choices on the seat back screens, make the process great!"
Cons: "My only issues have been with LAX itself & staff there (nothing crazy, just less than stellar service & somewhat rude staff occasionally) but flying with JetBlue has been awesome."
Cons: "Better notification about delays"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I enjoyed the variety of entertainment offered as well."
Cons: "A few more food options would be nice."
Pros: "Aircraft nice, clean and modern"
Cons: "Entertainment had technical issues."

Cons: "Sleeping in longer"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Tv did not work on a 4 hour 40 minute flight."
Pros: "The space and chairs The choice of movies"
Pros: "Flight attendants were unbelievable. There were two people who were ill during the trip and they took such care in making sure they were ok."
Cons: "I could not get comfortable. I was freezing and could not sleep. The chairs are so uncomfortable. The chair hit me in all the wrong places...not sure if it is because I am petite."
Cons: "It took over 2.5 hours to decide to switch airplanes"
Cons: "That the flight kept on getting delayed. JB staff should be more efficient. We understand the delay of up to one hour, but no one had any idea what was taking so long. we are two senior citizen with medical conditions. We specifically choose to fly JetBlue because they are on time and because of their service. We paid more to go with JetBlue, we could have gone with another cheaper airline. I guess it is time we change the way we think"
Pros: "I assume it's a well-known fact that airlines exaggerate the actual flight time to create an illusion of early arrival. However, the net result is sitting on the tarmac because the arrival gate is occupied...for an hour."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very kind, but the pilot did not inform the cabin what was happening often enough."
Cons: "There was over a four-hour delay to board and 2 more hours on the jetway before we took off. I ended up having to re-route through Long Beach and pay $75 more to get home."
Pros: "Mint service is better, and cheaper, than most domestic first class"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed and she made sure we will arrive in our final destination with no kinks or issues We were Re routed to Washington Dulles Airport instead of LAX and flew all the way to Cebu Philippines via Korean Airlines which we were grateful and happy"
Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"
Pros: "I felt comfortable in my economy seat with my individual entertainment center for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "They do not enforce the edict of 1 carryon bag per person"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful made me feel safe. The entertainment was excellent. Loved the snacks!!"
Pros: "Free WiFi was great, but wish I could sign in with my Amazon account instead of setting up TrueBlue."
Cons: "The food cart rushed by without asking if we wanted anything. Also not clear until after food purchase that free snacks would be available throughout the flight."
Pros: "Overall it’s always very easy and pleasant but I noticed this trip the quality was lower than I remember. Cheap coffee, no lemon for tea, little thin the nicer touches i remember previously. Plus the flight attendant had such a thick accent could barely understand her and the pilot had us in bumpy air the air the whole flight home."
Cons: "3 HR DELAYED DEPARTURE... IT WAS SO TERRIBLE.. NO CARRY ON LUGGAGE SPACE ON BOTH FLIGHTS"
Pros: "Quick security check."
Cons: "Temperature to hot in main cabin during flight."
Pros: "Very professional and enthusiastic Jetblue staff from bag check to arrival."
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours early. Security lines were long. I had to run to the gate as they announced that the plane doors were closing 20 minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "Perfect, the Jetblue staff was always helpful !"
Pros: "Friendly crew and highly comfortable flight. Will be switching to Jet Blue!!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and no food offered on board. Not even for Christmas"
Pros: "The crew was great and boarding and take off were very smooth. TVs were big and had a lot of options for entertainment."
Cons: "Waited 15 minutes on a taxiway for a gate once we landed and another half hour for the carousel to start dropping our bags at baggage claim."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "On a 5hr flight they stopped service after 2hrs and never offered any food for purchase. We were limited to the free snacks only which was lame."
Pros: "Plane departed early and arrived 40 minutes early. Well done"
Cons: "Prefer BLUE Chips rather than cheese x AND usually they call for VETERANS to board before the start of general boarding. This is the first time Jet Blue DID NOT extend that courtesy"
Pros: "Crew were fine, boarding was easy. But on a 6 hour flight you have an expectation that the media will work, especially from Jet Blue since that’s what they build their business on."
Cons: "50% of the entertainment consoles were not working."
Pros: "Better leg room Better planes (WiFi, Seats, Movies) Better flight attendants"
Cons: "Same snacks and other non food as other airlines"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable (an Airbus A320). Entertainment system adequate. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Two dogs in cabin. They were mostly well behaved. A group of six children loosely supervised by a couple of adults. The children were allowed to wreak havoc on the center section of the plane's cabin."
Pros: "Enjoyed everything about the flight from takeoff to landing. When possible I will fly jetblue over southwest any day"
Cons: "there really wasn't anything I didn't like. Except for maybe the roomier seats that sat vacant on the flight - when I asked if I could move from my seat I was told that I had to pay $$$ more if I wanted to move to one of the empty seats during the flight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Pros: "The staff, the service and the overall flight experience!!! Best flight ever1"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great!"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, bathrooms, entertainment, smoothness of flight, wifi"
Cons: "Always hope for more than water and pretzels, but those days are gone I guess."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. The entertainment selection was decent, but considering that it crashed continually throughout the flight, and then stopped working halfway through, selection didn't mean much."
Cons: "Wifi - didn't work the entire flight (nor did it work on my outbound flight either). Entertainment system - kept crashing in the middle of watching movies, and then ultimately stopped working altogether (with 4.5 hours left in the flight). The seats are TINY - I've flown Mint class several times, and while it's great that they've created such an awesome experience up front, the coach experience has REALLY suffered."
Early arrival, exexcellent check in
Cons: "No mechanical failures or delays would be nice"
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"

Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
Pros: "Each employee on the plane was nice."

Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "The cheese bites were amazing!"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Cons: "Small airplane, noissy"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "Delta is professional and safe. The best fares ever."
Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I LIKED EVERYTHING,SERVICE AND ATENTION WAS EXELLENT ,PERSONAL WAS GREAT, MY BEST FLIGHT EVER..."
Cons: "WELL,ALL TV SCRENS ON THE RIGHT SIDE WASN'T WORKING,BUT NOT A BIG DEAL..."
Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"
Cons: "5 hours delayed for no apparent reason. Understaffed in SJC to handle this."
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Cons: "Lost baggage. No one told us anything till after an hour"
Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "Love the hospitality and the staffs kindness"
Pros: "Customer service was great"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "Seatsnare ridiculously tight for a 6ft man."
Pros: "The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me."
Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
Cons: "Multiple cancellations and a total of THIRTY HOURS OF TRAVEL TIME for what was supposed to be 5 hours of travel in the beginning. I am still sitting in a god damn airport as we speak."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."
Pros: "Staff are friendly"
Cons: "No leg room compared with JetBlue; few free snacks"
Pros: "I liked that the security line experiences very mellow, the staff all around was very friendly and nice, the TV's were great and they had free blankets and headsets. It was a very relaxing experience."
Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
This was a 5 1/2 hour flight and the internet was iffy at best and TV monitors did not work after maybe an hour into the flight. I could not access the internet on my phone or watch the monitor. Made for an even longer flight from Boston to LAX.
Flight delayed, crew didn't seem to care. Asked if they could make an announcement to allow connecting flights off first but no. Entertainment screen and power not working
Great crew and flight. Headphone jack was not working properly to watch a movie. Flight attendant assisted by making me aware that the same movies could be watched on a smartphone.
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "Entertainment was good for the length of the flight."
Cons: "Delayed several times, one of which was because they didn’t have enough gas for the trip. The pilot also came in so fast and hard that he slammed on the planes breaks when landing - violently shaking the entire plane."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 1 hour, electrical problems, which were never fixed. No entertainment no wifi, unable to charge battery on cell phone. Cabin very warm."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "19 minute flight wheels up to wheels down!"
Cons: "Overall good business class trip."
Cons: "The greed of the airlines is on full display. There was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. That is all gone now. Flight attendants cold, and almost hostile."
Pros: "Attentiveness of crew and meeting my needs"
Cons: "More leg room/space and a FREE sandwich. I’ll take one is those."
Cons: "The crew seemed annoyed and not into it."
Pros: "Never even made it on this flight because the first flight was ruined and delayed severely"
Cons: "The fact that my travel plans were entirely derailed and I had to book with another airline"
Pros: "Good pilot/ crew to passenger interection. Great movie and entertainment selections."
Cons: "Turbulence but airline / pilot can't control that."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Pros: "The crew were fine, not their fault for sure."
Cons: "5 hour delay. That about says it all. All due to late flight crew from weather elsewhere, having them being taken offline because of long hours, trying to find new people, having a jetway break. Having to sit on a plane in the terminal for more than an hour with no air and stifling heat, taken off the plane and back on. All for a non-stop flight from Boston to LA. Definitely not fun."
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Pros: "New entertainment system, and variety of selection. Plane cleanliness as condition."
Cons: "Seats are stiff and uncomfortable. Pretzels and only pretzels for snacks."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"
Pros: "Paying for food (sarcastically) — the staff on the flight need hospitality training"
Pros: "What you expect from an internal US flight: no food, crowded flight, cramped seats. I have come to expect two things - arrive on time and arrive safely. The good, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Pulled away from gate and sat on tarmac for over an hour while technical difficulties fixed. We should not have boarded until plane was ready. We arrived over one hour late and just made connecting flight. Our luggage was not so fortunate."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "The flight was safe."
Cons: "Hi. I was shocked that there was no food served on the 6 hour flight from Boston to LA. And the seats are way too small. I’m not large and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. There wasn’t enough help, either."
Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"
Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Cons: "20 minute departure delay. More than 30 minutes at baggage claim"
Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."
Pros: "Great having plugs, nice seats"
Cons: "First leg of flight did not have personal TVs, so limited selection of entertainment"
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Cons: "No complaints. Best flight in a long time"
Pros: "Got in an hour early. Booya."
Pros: "Crew are cold. Babies crying. Dogs parking. And strong headwinds flying in from Boston made this flight uncomfortable"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "I had all three seats to myself! The plane temperature was good, the pilots were friendly and funny as a spoke to the passengers. The crew was attentive, and we arrived on time despite getting off to a late start. Plus the pilots did a great job on landing the plane."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment provided."
Cons: "I purchased extra legroom but got less - front row.Between two very large elderly gentlemen. No overhead storage either. Miserable and long flight."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Cons: "Being stuck in a high dollar city for an additional night when i should have made it to the lower intermediary city and flown standby the next day."
We arrived at our destination 35 minutes early. I walked off the plane to the baggage claim, and, this is amazing, our bags were on the conveyor belt when we arrived at the belt.
On time,and luggage came out super fast at end
Everyone was really helpful to me during the whole process, from checking in, to getting my luggage.
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "I liked the ticket price."
Cons: "The seat was very narrow with absolutely minimal leg space, and a carry-on bag was not included in the fare."
Cons: "I didn’t expect to pay to $30 for a carry on luggage"
Pros: "i was able to change my seat away from a breastfeeding mom and 2 screaming children"
Cons: "i paid 21.00 for internet which sucked.,buffeted the whole time..couldn’t watch netflix..will be petitioning to get my money back!.."
Pros: "Had exit row seats so there was plenty of leg room. We were in group 1 boarding, so we were boarded early so we had no problems."
Cons: "We were transferring to another airline with a 3 hr layover and United didn't get our bags there on time so our luggage showed up at our final destination 24 hrs late. Entertainment didn't work well - there seemed to be problems connecting via wifi and movies continuously stopped so I didn't use it."
Cons: "Lady sitting behind me lit a cigarette on the tarmac"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Crew disappeared for most of the flight as if it were a red eye and only served everyone one package of pretzels and came by with the drink cart once...this was on a seven hour flight. they did come by two other times wth a Tray of water but overall were not very friendly whatsoever."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "No screens nor outlets for charging. Outlets available only for higher tier tickets (for additional price). Surprised they dod not charge for air based on ticket price, but they might have for all I know. Sitting on the runway waiting for a gate, our section was filled with exhaust from the engines, which feeled like assisted suicide, almost lost consciousness."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Flight was on time, clean, comfy."
Cons: "Media wasn't working on the seat screens."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Pros: "Our flight was changed a total of 6 times. We spent 9 hours waiting because their wasn't a crew. When we tried to board our seats apparently we're given away to someone else. I will never be on another united flight again"
Cons: "How can you fly hundreds people across the nation in a 100 million dollar aircraft but not know who to reset the router on the wifi? Bait and switches. They should never advertise it if they can't get it to work."
Pros: "The concern of the flight attendant when she accidentally kicked my foot in an aircast. It was my fault because I had my foot in the aisle trying to stretch out a bit."
Cons: "The inability to access the entertainment through the app. I received the message that it was temporarily unavailable. I was disappointed as I wanted to watch a movie."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "I liked that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Small plane, entertainment was very poor- no television and poor wifi connection. Not much of a selection with the food"
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Pros: "Very polite clean nice great experience"
Cons: "On at least one leg of my trip both two and from my destination the flight was late. As if that wasn't bad enough, twice the plane was over sold and people had to be removed to stay and catch a later flight which in turn made the plane even later. Many people either had to run to catch their connection or missed it all together. Several of which had small children. I fly about half a dozen times a year and this was the worst of the year."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Cons: "no room very tight"
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Pros: "this was the cheapest flight i found. It wasnt bad. Just your typical airplane ride. I just kept myself busy during flight. wish they showed a movie or something."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentative"
Cons: "Nothing stood out, no one went above and beyond. When boarding, a flight attendant said there was no room in the overhead for my carry on and told me I had to check in my bag. When I finally boarded the flight, there were many empty spaces that could have fit my carry on"
Cons: "Were held up by TSA in San Francisco because we were not given receipt for our dog who traveled with us. (We had a 2 hour layover in SF and took dog outside the security area for relief). Then the ticket counter in SF was understaffed and it took a long time to get the receipt printed (Once at the counter the agent was very helpful, efficient and quick). Should have a pet area inside the security of airports, like Palm Springs does."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 HOURS due to lazy attempts at calculating how much fuel was required with weather systems. We stopped to refuel in Minneapolis for a very long time, despite assurances it would only take ~20 minutes."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding went smoothly. I'm glad that they now offer complementary small snacks."
Cons: "I can never get the entertainment to work on my personal device and the seating is always tight in economy class."
Pros: "The flight attendents were attentive and did a great job."
Cons: "Customer service was rude to us about our carry on. It was fine on the way to Boston, but made to pay and check it on the way back. other customers had bags our size but we we're rudely told "you need to go pay for your bag that's it". The bag fit effortlessly in the top on the way there."
Cons: "Delays, had to stay overnight in Chicago since we arrived 6 hours late"
Cons: "For reasons known only to them, United managed to separate the reservations of my wife and mine. Having paid for the trip with the Mileage Plus Explorer card, the first checked bag is free for each traveler. At the kiosk check-in at Logan, the machine wanted to bill us $25 to check my wife's bag. It took another 20 minutes to get this rectified."
Cons: "Need to find a way for kayak to streamline the entry of tsa precheck info prior to flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Cons: "Did not like the delay that happened and we arrived 2 hours later. I was suppose to arrive 10:30 and I arrived 12:30. I wasn't able to go to work for that reason."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for a (scheduled) hour before take-off. What gives?!"
Pros: "I have flown spirit airlines a few times Every time they are delayed and unorganized / inconsistent with charging fees for bags I don’t understand how they can always be so off target"
Cons: "The flight kept being delayed further for vague reasons and we were not given a realistic estimate of when we might actually take off. When we finally boarded the plane two hours late, it smelled strongly of vomit and was covered in crumbs and other debris from previous passengers. Paying $45 for a carry on bag is expected with Spirit but also so absurdly overpriced. Unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on baggage."
Pros: "First flight in six years. Had a great time."
Cons: "I went to the airport 35 min before the flight left with no luggage. I was told that Airline policy is to cutoff at 45 minutes and so they did not give me a boarding pass. I asked for alternative arrangements. They said that they can give me a ticket for a flight 48 hours later. They also said that they do not partner with other airlines so they cannot help. I purchased a ticket with another airline and left a few hours later. The staff told me that this is an everyday occurrence. Policies are fine but the staff should provide alternate solutions."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Cons: "Pilot were on strike and put everyone on a Saturday out. Meaning, no flights available till Monday and no help due to their issues. Paying last minute hotel in Vegas on a Saturday is hell, especially at 9pm. I had the last flight. My siblings warned me of how Spirit is the worst airline...and I have to agree. Worst airline!"
Pros: "Low cost airlines require the customer to constantly think about every little thing and to monitor the airline to make sure it's taken care of. It's just a lot more work than flying a normal carrier."
Pros: "Price is good, I purchased a seat and that worked well, the price was fine"
Cons: "Why are the seats so uncomfortable?"
Pros: "The flight from Myrtle to Boston was on time and actually landed 15 min early. My boyfriend and I got to sit near each other and had privacy. Super comfy new seats and room to stretch."
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to Myrtle was an hour and 1/2 delayed because of a crew member being late. Very irresponsible. We were all exhausted and some people had connecting flights that may have been missed. Crew talked to each other a lot and missed some passenger requests. I believe the flight attendant said it was a Chicago crew. The $50 luggage fee is a bit much. Thought the old policy was more fair. I like Spirit for its affordability which is going away now."
Cons: "I hate the spirit model and I hate that the regular airlines are starting to do it. Also they don't put enough padding on the seats, which is uncomfortable on a 5 hour flight. Flight was overbooked so it left late, but they padded the arrival time by an ENTIRE HOUR so it arrived "early"."
Cons: "I signed up for their meet and assist program where they were supposed to take my mom to the gate and make certain she boarded then would take her from her plane to baggage claim. They did neither of those tasks, nor could they give me any status updates along the way. This is the last time we fly Spirit."
Pros: "My flight got canceled after being delayed for more than 5 hours. I called the Airline and still haven't gotten a reimbursement, or a voucher or anything. I understand things happen, but the poor accodomation and response from the spirit airline have been unprofessional and unresponsive."
Pros: "1. Cheap tickets. The catch? You have to pay for carry-ons. Depending when you pay for it, you can end paying for carry-on more than the cost of the ticket. 2. Do you have TSA pre? Doesn't matter because they do not partner with TSA pre so you will end in the slow checkpoint. 3. You couldn't print your boarding pass? Bad news, they do not support Apple wallet or electronic boarding pass. 4. You want to check your luggage or print your ticket at the counter? They are only available for 4 blocks of ~ two hours during the day (SEA). 5. Can't choose your seat unless you pay extra. I prefer to pay twice rather than fly on Spirit again."
Pros: "I managed restaurants for years, so I want to start off by saying I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to mistakes. 4 out of the 5 flights I've mistakenly subjected myself to with Spirit have been absolutely atrocious in every way imaginable. This one was so horrible I can't even type the story in fear I'll start to relive it. Trust me and please let my pain and suffering be reconciled through saving you the pain of walking in the shoes of a Spirit Airlines customer. If ever considering a flight with Spirit...just say no. If for some crazy reason they draw you in with a price, schedule, airport location, or any other reason or combination of reasons...I promise you, it isn't worth it. Even if the flight is free, you'll feel cheated and short changed in the end after you overcome the shear disbelief that any company could survive operating the way they do. And if you're still considering Spirit at this point, I wish you luck...you'll need plenty of it. They're mediocre 20^ of the time. If you're flight is like the greater 80% of my experiences, Lord help you."
Cons: "Everything but the color yellow in their logo. And PS, any of these good reviews have got to be friends and family. Spirit Airlines couldn't hit a 10 on their best day. Virgin can hit a 10, but Spirit...their top end can't be higher than a 4"
Pros: "This flight was easy and cheap. I went online beforehand and added a back plus printed out my boarding pass - so no extra charges. Simple!"
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "As usual handicap services are terrible. Checked in, waited 20 minutes for a wheelchair. When boarding started there was no one to push my chair, so I sat there while most other passengers boarded. Finally got tired of waiting, wheeled myself to the plane. Help never arrived. When I got off the plane, no helper waiting. A fellow passenger kindly pushed my wheelchair to baggage claim. Will check tomorrow to see if Spirit is in violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act."
Pros: "Security check in was easy"
Cons: "Instructions were not clear on checking luggage and the representative advised that he would let me go this time but I would be charged much extra in the future. I paid to have the bag checked. My ticket says gate B37 but the plane was loaded at gate B38.I did not hear any instructions about checking bags even though I was where I was supposed to be. I will have to assess whether I am saving money and if the confusion is worth saving a few dollars."
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Quick check-in and short lines for security"
Cons: "No free water? Really? Things spirit can't do anything about: noisy crying children, loud talking, etc. disrespectful travelers"
Pros: "Good Equipment, Airbus 319. Prompt take off and on time landing, both directions. Good fares, but a little tricky on the baggage. Assigned seating... even though we went with assigned seating, we still got to sit together, both directions! All issues considered, I would fly Spirit again, and I will encourage others to do so as well! Patrick"
Cons: "Had an issue paying extra for the baggage. Even though my credit is excellent, my card was rejected, so I had to call a rep from Spirit to make arrangements on the same card. This took an hour and a half on the computer... who knows why? Once I spoke w/ the rep, it was wrapped up in 10 minutes. Patrick"
Pros: "Nothing. The crew is rude and the gate staff in Chicago are some of the meanest, most unbelievably careless people I have met in my 20 years of constant travel"
Cons: "I don't like when planes leave before they are scheduled to leave with my luggage. We were standing at the gate 15 minutes before the departure time but they had already given our seats away"
Pros: "The crew and staff were excellent. I know they were stressed as well, considering the delay. They made an announcement about extra emergency seats and i was upgraded from a random, yet free, seat."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to depart at 9- beginning around noon I stared receiving emails saying that it had been delayed. Not just one email- the time of my departure changed over 8 times!! Went back and forth as well with the times, later then earlier, then later again... Even one last time at the actual gate. It was ridiculous. Maybe wait until closer to the flight time when you have a better idea of the actual departure time instead of changing it numerous times. Especially when traveling by train from a distance to the airport, it's important to know when the plane will leave!! I will NEVER fly spirit again"
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "Just the crew was polite"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled so we got rescheduled to early morning, not good with 2yr child"
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Cons: "They charge you for absolutely everything. They make the tickets cheap and then don't tell you that everything has a fee. The fees are more than the tickets. Never flying with them ever again. My flight was also delayed."
Pros: "The Crew was nice."
Cons: "They have cheaper Tickets than any other Airline, but they make their money through everything else. One suitcase is 38$, you have no carry-on free, carry-ons are even more expensive than a regulär suitcase. You just get one Personal item free, not more. Was on a Five hour flight to LA and got nothing. No food, not even water. For everything I had to pay. They don't have WiFi, no on board entertainment. The seats was small and uncomfortable. Oh and in teirs suitcases they just allow 18 kg, not 23 like everyone else. So I had 24 kg and they charged me 55$ for they overweight. Their Tickets might be cheap, but in the end for me it would have been better flying with another Airline."
Cons: "When we arrived at the airport the flight was posted on the aiport depatures board to leave an hour late. This information was never updated, although departure was actually delayed almost two hours. No Spirit personnel were ever present at the departure gate or elsewhere in the departures area to provide an explanation or answer questions, nor was any information whatsoever posted at the gate at any time. Once passengers were on board and the plane was about to depart, the pilot did give a short explanation, adequate but tardy. I know Spirit is a low cost airline, but keeping passengers informed about the status of a very much delayed flight Is a basic service that would not cost much."
Pros: "The crew was nice. . If you are traveling extremely light (just a backpack or purse), Spirit is a good deal, but......"
Cons: "Travelers have to pay for water on the flight. Why not also charge a few bucks to use the bathroom while you're at it? The $55 for a carry on bag should be made more clear up front. Once you add in the a la carte costs, flying on Sprit costs the same"
Pros: "The crew members were upbeat, polite, and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are too damn small. The person in back of me was kneeing me in the back. I couldn't even lower the tray table all the way down without hitting my knees. I know that more people per flight means lower fares, but you guys have pushed it too far. This was maybe the most uncomfortable flight of my life. Beyond the shitty seats, I couldn't check in to my flight using the website. It kept rejecting my password. I tried to reset my password and I kept getting error messages. So annoying."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating. This was the worst flying experience imaginable. I get that you're the cheapest airline and all but the little bit of money saved to have to sit in such an awe fully uncomfortable seat doesn't make it worth it. I will probably fly another airline next time just because of that"
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Every Spirit fight that I have taken has been delayed majorly impacting my trips. The first making my family miss one full day in Miami after the flight was delayed twice. Yesterday my flight was delayed over two hours for crew issues. I understand weather issues, but there should be some accomodation made when it is entirely the airline's fault. I witnessed one distraught passenger try to get assistance when the realized they had left his daughter's medication on the plane after leaving the plane. The gate agents were sort with him, not helpful in any way. They did call for a supervisor who showed up with a lollipop in her mouth. So unprofessional. I could go on, but I won't. This is a low cost carrier, with fares seemingly lower than their competitors but make sure to consider all of the fees before buying your ticket. Chances are the price is close to another carrier."
Cons: "I took Spirit airlines years ago in an emergency. It was a terrible experience then. Mostly due to comfort and the condition of the airplane. It felt like we were sitting in a bare plastic container. The fare for this last trip appealed to me until I went to check in and was charged an extraordinary amount for checking a bag and for bringing a carry on on the plane. And then the charge to pick a seat? Please... the fare for this flight ended up being more than my return flight on a more premium airline where I would have gotten to select my seat and fly more comfortably. Worst policies ever. I will never be flying spirit again. That being said, I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "First I got text flight is on time I left home accordingly. After getting boarding pass it was delayed 35 minutes. When I went to boarding area. Close to scheduled time announced that with flight will be late over another two hours. I arrived at my destination at 1:00 am instead of 10:30 pm. It was highly uncomfortable for me and as well my host. Who came too pick me from 1:15 distance. I will never advise that to save $30-50 dollars. Ruined your entire trip. Never ever travel Spritor advise others."
Cons: "Tricked into paying extra on everything. Never would have bought that flight if I knew how cheap the airline was. And you'd think and much as a "cheap flight" it was they would still have decent comfortable seats, and carpet that wasn't being ripped up. Literally the plane was only missing the dogs and goats. Absolutely horrible. I will never fly with spirit again and I've told everyone I know never to fly spirit."
Cons: "Spirit charges for carry on luggage as well as for soft drinks during flight."
Cons: "Departed an hour late, again. Cost of luggage greater than other airlines, and cost of tickets comperable. Flight attendants much more polite on this flight. Arrived tired, seats don't recline so I found it hard to sleep."
