Pros: "I LOVED the comfort of the ample seating space and leg room, compared to American and free WiFi and movies with the individual monitors on the seat backs for every passenger. I flew Jet Blue on my return flight from LA to Boston to attend our son’s USC graduation. The flight from Boston to LA was on an American Airlines flight. The seats were super narrow with very cramped leg room. To add insult to discomfort , I learned just after take off on the American flight to LA that our dogs got loose at home and the person caring for them was frantic. I had to purchase in flight WIFI ($16/ hour $18 for the entire flight) to attend to the Lost dog issue (hugely stressful) only to learn after the flight that $300 worth of fraudulent charges occurred during the flight that my bank’s fraud department claims occurred as a result of entering my card information to purchase the internet access. That depleted the majority of our travel budget. (We live paycheck to paycheck and had pinched & saved to be able attend this special event) I was so apprehensive on the returning flight and can’t describe my relief to learn the WIFI was free. My fears dissolved as did my aching head and back as I settled into a wonderfully comfortable seat with far more leg room than my prior flight. Thanks Key Blue! You have a fan for life!!"
Cons: "Not one thing I didn’t like!!!!"

Cons: "Everything!!! This happened too many times with JetBlue! 5 hour delay was ridiculous!!!"
Cons: "Every thing are great thx"
Pros: "A lady name Avana was so rude to people and make our life miserable. She was rudely angry and act in a bad manner that discourage me to travel jet blue. I am a very good Custumer of Jet blue and I am so happy that Jet blue flies to my country I do everything I can to support that. However another lady ask my uncle 60 dollars for a weelchair and left him without the weelchair because he did not pay her. No one there to help us out because Avana controlled everything. Please fire Avana now. I love Jetblue but Avana needs to go. She is one of the evil customer service person I ever met in my life"
Cons: "I did not like Avana’s behavior. I need someone to reply to me about her. She needs formation about customer service. Her position is not where she is as. She does not represent Jetblue well. I hate to talk like this about my black brother and Sister but that Avana is the worst person that I know Whi O’Schush working in Jetblue. My name is Yvans. You contact me if you want to."

Cons: "Passengers had to pay for headset"
Pros: "Check in was quick and painless"
Cons: "Boarding last even though sitting in rear of aircraft."
Pros: "Super helpful crew. Organized boarding. Quick departure."
Cons: "Evidently LAX doesn't think anyone leaves early in the morning because they have absolutely no staff at any of their vendors in the terminal. 30 minutes to get a coffee and yogurt? Ridiculous..."
Pros: "Free WiFi, free entertainment, some free snacks, excellent flight attendants - loved it all!"
Pros: "The free WiFi and snacks will totally make me a repeat customer’ great flight attendants and good communication."
Cons: "No comments to provide"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding was easy. The flight attendants came around with waters twice which was great as it was dry in flight."
Pros: "Got our tickets nice and cheap. Made it home safe and sat beside a cool person"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't go back, so sleeping was difficult. Staff seemed a bit annoyed with everyone."
Pros: "Entertainment was great! Great selection of movies!"
Cons: "The earbuds are terrible, I personally don't do well with that style - i would do research to see what the most universal type head phones are used because these were the worst. Also the control to my entertainment was on the right side, where the middle person kept changing my channels and volume. I would have liked for it to be on maybe the left side where no one else could touch it. (I sat at a window seat) The guy next to me fell asleep and so it was super hard to get to my controller (although there is one on the computer, he was still messing with it with his elbow)."
Cons: "2 hour delay and gate changes were ridiculous"
Pros: "The crew. The plane. The space. Everything"
Cons: "I forgot my headphones so it was a bummer to have to buy them but other than that everything was amazing! I love Jet Blue!"
Pros: "The legroom was a bit better than most airlines."
Cons: "We were on the right side of the aisle as you face the front of the plane but for a long time it seemed as if only the other side was being served any snacks, beverages. The plane was delayed for takeoff due to a/c problems. Too bad that was not discovered before boarding and forcing us to sit in the fairly uncomfortable for an extra hour and a half. The crew did not seem overly helpful."
Cons: "Intermittent access on some Tv's is frustrating when you are in the wrong seat."
Cons: "The crew was either rushed, tired or something...not as friendly and that made for a long trip."
Pros: "Smooth flight all the way from LAX to JFK. Kind flight attendants always attentive."
Pros: "Leg room because I sat next to the emergency exit"
Cons: "Everything except leg room. First, your team never offered beverages. When I asked them about it, they said that they didn't want to wake anyone ... really? Like the whole plane? It's a red eye flight ... I'm sure most would take at least a water. Meanwhile First Class was served every two minutes for everything they wanted ... and us folks that make up the rest of the plane ... we don't count? So, everyone basically went to the fridge to get drinks. Water wasn't even offered ... huh? Also, your seats were ridiculously crammed ... extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm glad we made it to New York."
Cons: "Jet Blue didn’t transfer my baggage to the company which I would fly with after, and if the office didn’t call me I would have my luggage lost. Not to mention that I had to stay caring it around the airport for 13 hours, until the time of my next flight."
Pros: "I arrived 3 hours early and was able to switch to an earlier flight."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats in my row were filthy. Not only was there food on the seats but there was crusted food on the pull down tray. When this was brought to Peter's (the steward's) attention he handed me a napkin and water to clean it myself. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't think I'll be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "I didn't like arriving at 4:00 a.m. in the morning and having to be at work in a few hours. We were told that we would receive a voucher via email. I never received anything. The delay was unacceptable."
Pros: "It was reasonably priced. I didn't realize when booking that the reason it's so cheap is that you have to pay for every little thing, but it was only a short flight, non-stop direct, which suited my needs, so I didnt really mind. I gave the "food" 1 star because there isn't a N/A option. Free wifi on the return flight!"
Cons: "Blankets and pillows cost extra. Food and drinks cost extra."
Cons: "American has no respect for their customers. Counter agent NEVER called group nine to board, then got on the loud speaker and said, “final boarding call, doors will close 30 seconds after the end of this message.” Wha? Poor customer service..."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Pros: "Left early, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bought a seat that was explained as not having another passenger on either side, but it was just two seats in a row."
Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "We were seated in economy but we had a pretty good flight. The only rough part was the fact that it was 10 hours of sitting, and that was due to the destination not AA's service. As someone who is used to United and Delta for flying, I felt that the service offered kinda rocked."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."
Pros: "Nothing. Cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "Mechanics issues. Plane never took off. Never made our connection. Had to get a new flight."
Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by almost three hours due to weather in Chicago, the crew was very helpful and the pilot kept us informed about the updates that he was receiving."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Cons: "I didn't know it was American Airlines. I would have bought a different ticket had I known it wasn't JAL."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
Cons: "Flight cancelled , no communication, the flight the next day delayed two hours and we where given four different gate numbers for the flight, walked backwards and forwards trying to find the correct gate with my children."
Pros: "Nothing about American or the way they do business is good!"
Cons: "I paid for first class seats plane broke put on another in economy seats! And everyone refused to comp us or help us out! Horrible airline avoid if possible! This was twice AA has messed me and my wife over!!"
Cons: "Being charged almost $50 to carry a bag on. Bogus"
Pros: "The sky was blue."
Cons: "I honestly did. It like a this g, I would never fly Spirit again. No leg room for a personal. 6'3""
Cons: "I wasn't flying to hawaii"
Pros: "Spirits online website is totally transparent about their extra fees and ways to save on baggage. I wish that info would've been available on kayak but I did find it easily on the spirits website"
Cons: "I wanted to start off by apologizing for my behavior. I definitely became really frustrated with the situation and definitely took it out on the agent. He was totally just doing his job and I way overreacted Essentially, all I think could be used to improve with this flight was a little more information about boarding as well as emails to web check in. I forgot to do so for this flight and an invitation to online checkin as well as more information about the boarding process (i.e.: the gates in this airport are further from the terminals than typical airports) would be gratefullly allreciately."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Spirit, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Tge flight attendants were so friendly and professional."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Crew was great."
Cons: "Nothing to drink on the plane. 4 hours with no water."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice from LAX to MSY"
Cons: "small seats, hidden baggage fees through priceline"
Cons: "No free carry in"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Luggage price. I paid$100 for one little suitcase"
Pros: "Workers were friendly"
Cons: "You have to pay for carry on"
Pros: "The crew from the moment I got to the gate constantly yelled at passengers. When on the flight it didn't get any better. They were horrible to everyone. The crew in front of the plane talked so loudlyamoung themselves that you couldn't hear yourself think. I will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "No refund for canceling my flight."
Pros: "It was comfortable he loves it but when it come to luggage process.forget it.which is the most important for us."
Cons: "That's not right,this is my first time purchase this ticket for my father.its not going to happened again believe me.i regreted it that I didn't get American airlines which I normally get I was just trying spirit ,trust me it was the worst experience ever."
Cons: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"
Cons: "I understand that spirit is a cheap airlines particularly serving those without luggage; however, when having luggage I spent $200 for a flight to pdx to lax - not a good deal. $200 for that flight should come with some kind of incredible perks which is not the case with spirit where you don't even get proper flight updates on the screen or tray tables. Also, it is clear that your airlines prey on those who follow directions as I saw handfuls of people walking through the gate with their luggage and not being charged, my boyfriend/travel companion for example paid nothing for his luggage, disregarded all memos via loud speaker and walked on with his unpaid for luggage. The experience with spirit was undesirable in every way and I will never chose this airline over another (luggage in hard or not) after the poor experience and being completely ripped off. I plan to share this message with social media and yelp sites as well."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Food options were terrible. The only hot food was a horrible, extremely processed, "Instant Noodle Soup""
Cons: "Everything was awful from the way they handled bags, to the communication about delays, to the delays themselves, to the failure to take care of passengers given the long delays. Before signing up for a Spirit flight, make sure you add the cost of checking carry-on bag, getting a seat assignment, getting any water during flight, boarding (yes they up charge for boarding). Then, make sure you factor in the small size of the airline which makes it far, far more vulnerable to weather delays - fewer planes, fewer pilots, fewer re-routes available. Also, add at least an hour to the end of each flight to get your bags if you do check them. So, you don't save money or time, and you're very vulnerable to weather and mechanical. With their organization this bad, I can only imagine how weak their mechanical is."
Pros: "not the seats."
Cons: "The seats. I haven't ridden Spirit in a couple years, but since the last time, they have been replaced with the airline equivalent of 1980s lawn chair, but even less comfortable."
Pros: "it has the cheapest price for the thanksgiving weekend flight and the crew were so accommodating and funny."
Cons: "Had an emergency, missed my flight, had to buy another ticket to Detroit instead of Cleveland"
Cons: "I don't like feeling nickel and dimed."
Pros: "Flights on time or early. Well organized boarding. Clean & new planes, & seemed roomier than the "big guy" airlines."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Everything costs from water to seats to carry-on bags to checked bags. By time you pay to get a seat and to either check or carry on a bag both ways, add $70 per person to fare. Helps if you bring your own snacks."
Cons: "Seats are Horrible You don't even give out water and peanuts Staff is OK Pricing is the weirdest thing I have ever dealt with before. You are not cheaper you are just GOOD HUSTLERS!! Your Trays aren't big enough to hod a DAMN THING!!! I am waiting for Ashton Crutcher to pop out ANY MINUTE NOW and say Here are your Peanuts!!!"
Pros: "the spirit airlines was such and treated the customer like sh####t, also when chek in luggage, they cost more than what they said on online, and cary on they cost $45 , I recommend every body do not fly the spirit arilines"
Pros: "I am puzzled about how can I get the receipt of the tickets. would you please tell me by email? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much!"
Cons: "Being charged for water"
Pros: "The aircrew was friendly"
Cons: "expensive snacks"
Pros: "Plane was clean. The charge for using the overhead bins makes boarding and off-boarding quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 90 minutes without explanation."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "There was delays both ways. No room to move. Couldn't sleep on the way home. Food and water had to be purchased."
Pros: "The price seen on Kayak does not reflect the reality of the charges form the airline. Additional costs for luggage are excessive compared to other airlines and you feel treated like a second class citizen."
Pros: "I liked the spaciousness of the seats, and in general the cabin felt a little less cramped than some planes. Great ticket price. I liked the crew a lot, friendly, quiet."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing, there were too many people whose zone wasn't called waiting around the entry way. This crowd appeared to be the line but in fact wasn't. No Spirit employee was around to help avoid it. This wasn't a real big deal but some airlines avoid it with a simple announcement, asking those who haven't been called to remain seated. I would suggest Spirit does something similar. I don't like all the extra charges, for example for a second carry-on, but I get it, it's your way of offering cheap flights. I gave the food and entertainment only 3 stars just because of the charge, I didn't actually purchase anything."
Pros: "I found that my flight was very economical , on time at a convenient time , & that's all that I am interested in . Thankyou very much."
Cons: "Charging on a bag 52~55 $ was terrible, even if it is your policy. I will not use your flight. It is because I thought that your flight is cheaper than other companies, but it was not cheaper actually. So I feel that I was deceived. And the counter employees (in LAX) seemed that they laughed on my poor English. employee"
Cons: "Standard seats a little cramped if you're a bit tall."
Pros: "Same flight. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "No even a free cracker and glass of water."
Cons: "On my departing flight I was delayed right off the bat for 2 hours. Then after that we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours and then deboarded and delayed another 3 hours. The staff was very unhelpful and I paid $28 for a seat upgrade which was not even fulfilled because I requested an aisle seat and got a window seat. The staff was also very rude and told me this why hispanic people have a sterotype. On my arriving flight I was double charged for my carrying on and backpack. I was told that I would need to pay for both but when I went into the gate that was not the case and I saw that my backpack met specifications to not be charged. When I paid the fee the attendant took money out from her brasserie to give me change and then pocketed the cash and when I asked for a reciet she said the computer system was down and on my boarding ticket it did not have that I paid for a carry on so I was given a hard time at the gate. When I explained what happened they said okay as if this shady stuff is acceptable. I was then delayed in the air for 2 hours and rerouted to detroit to get gas. We were told to hold tight and not allowed to use the restroom for an hour to then be told we had to deboard for an addtional 2 hours. This is horrible and I will continue to speak with someone until I get a refund."
Pros: "Overall flying experience including 'On Time' performance. Reasonable service during flight."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat which could not be reclined for a little comfort. The seat pitch (distance between 2 rows) was awful because the passenger in the seat right behind me was constantly kicking me in my back and that was very annoying."
Pros: "Quick, no fuss boarding."
Cons: "lackluster attendants, no drink cart...or maybe I was sleeping..? Seats don't recline...not even a little bit!"
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING. No point in saving on the front end when it'll be more expensive after anyway"
Cons: "I was ripped off because when we baught the ticket - including speaking to a sales agent no mention was made of 50$for Suitcase. As the guy at the reception said: " It is in the small type". I felt cheated, will never fly you again and tell mt friends about it and have a nice day"
Pros: "The flight was quick and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a very long time."
Cons: "I don't like tricks or gimmicks. I want to know costs before I book a flight. I chose Spirit because of the lower ticket price. Little did I know I would be charged for my "carry on" ($55) and a bottle of water ($3). Not flying Spirit again."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flight experiences of my entire life. I had to pay almost $200 in extra fees, which included everything from checked bags, carry on bags AND seat selection. Their website is awful! It took me over 2 hours plus 2 customer service phone calls before I was able to check in for my flight. Completely disorganized at the airport. Under staffed. We arrived 2 hours early and barely made our flight. We were in lines so long we barely had time to use the restroom, let alone find any kind of food for the flight. Upon boarding, I witnessed one of the flight attendants being extremely rude and hostile to a female customer who was talking to her friend about how bad her Spirit experience was. A supervisor came back and instead of reprimanding the rude flight attendant, she told all of us that if the flight attendant didn't feel "comfortable" with any of us, we would be "removed" from the flight! The flight was delayed because they closed the cabin doors before 10 additional customers were able to make it through their ridiculous lines. Instead of apologizing for their incompetence, they blamed the customers for being late, despite the fact that at least one of them initially arrived at the same time we did (2 hours before the flight)! Oh and the flight itself was rickety as hell with screaming babies everywhere. I'm absolutely DREADING the return flight home. This is the worst airline ever and should be shut down as soon as possible."
Pros: "The crew and boarding was fine, the plane was clean and looked in good condition."
Cons: "The seats were cramped! the seat in front of me was literally 12 inches from my face. You are packed in like sardines, can't move, very uncomfortable. When I put my tray down it hit my stomach. Don't expect food or drink, it all cost money. The pilot was selling stuff too before landing kinda ridiculous. Baggage all cost money on top of the flight. It seems that they really try to nickel and dime you."
Pros: "Very efficient flight. The cabin was clean and comfortable. For the cost of the tickets I got a fantastic value, @ even 50% more this would have been satisfactory. Flew form Oakland, Ca. to LA and back, on the return flight we got assigned the upfront big seats which was a nice treat."
Cons: "We were going to do online check-in but there was a charge for that. Being a budget airline I can understand. Checking in at the terminal kiosk was no problem at all."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable, hard, small and they don't recline. You have to pay extra for everything even water!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Cons: "Very disorganized. I would recommend nobody fly on this airline. Pay the couple of extra bucks at airline that will more than likely get you to your destination on time."
