Fort Lauderdale connection is very bad with immigration with all the flights coming in Chicago should be a destination for direct flights to Columbia least they can take care of the crowd fast enough

Seats in row 2 very uncomfortable for sleeping!

Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone

Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "Paid seat was comfortable, entertainment was great"
Cons: "The elder gentleman was very rude throughout the flight. Paid for front row seat mostly due to covid and he made us seat and wait for people that had a connection flight to exit the plane all the way from the end of the aircraft defeating the purpose of me buying the front row seat at $65 which was more than the seat was worth. The way the crew asked was was very rude because he stated if we stand up he would keep the door closed. I understand about the passengers with connection flight but its Jetblue responsibility to get these people to their connection but it shouldn’t jeopardize me."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, spacious seats."
Cons: "Free alcoholic beverages. (At least 1 each flight. ) calming agent for nerves and turbulence"
Cons: "This flight was very delayed"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, courteous flight crew. Easy boarding and organized."
Pros: "Seat super comfortable for the price"
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed and no entertainment on the plane"
Pros: "The crew was good. They explained why we were late and helped with resetting the cabins TVs."
Cons: "The flight was delayed somewhat significantly which was very frustrating. Two of the four flights this trip were delayed."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No more overbook"
Pros: "The crew was good, and they tried to make up for the delay with a gift certificate"
Cons: "More than three hours of delay because there was no crew assigned to that flight"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. Flight delayed 3 hours due to JetBlue schedule mismanagement. No consideration for elderly when we had to change gates across airport. Poor communication on flight updates. And then as a perk to make up for delays, tried to sell us a credit card. Just Awful."
Pros: "Nice leg room, I like the option to watch TV for free"
Cons: "Our plane had a maintenance issue we didn’t bord for an hour after the original Time. The communication could have been way better from the gate agent to let us know updates."
Pros: "Loved the roomy seats"
Cons: "Sound system was low quality. Hard to here the movie."
Cons: "Left very late because of delayed inbound flight and need for deicing."
Pros: "excellent free snacks and nice water!"
Pros: "The rescheduling of my flight via a phone call"
Cons: "The delay of course"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "The crew was unfailing cheerful and helpful. The seats are comfortable and there’s a little more space than some airlines. The fight and particularly the landing was very smooth. Great experience!"
Pros: "More leg room Affordable prices Snacks dunkin donut coffee Pleasant flight attendant Punctuality"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane that the rerouted to replace the original plane was very comfortable. The email updates where better then the information at the gate. Normally, I enjoy flying JetBlue however, this weekend's round trip was disappointing. My 1st flight was delayed about 5 hours and the return flight was delayed as well."
Cons: "The long delay and limited snacks. (After that long delay) The incident on the plane- the passengers had to take action and not the flight attends when a passenger threaten by another passenger. A good Samaritan came to the woman's aid and ensure she was safe by switching her seat. Prior to this, another passenger had to use her call button to try to notify the flight attends because the woman was unable to. (That was her second attempt to notify the attendants). I am unclear to why her first attempt to change seats was not taken under consideration by the flight attended. The alleged passenger was clearly intoxicated and had fallen on the women. The flight attends did intervened after the flight landed at FLL. The woman was detained on the plane along with the alleged passenger. Once again, I am not sure if that was wise. The woman could have been taken off the plane safely and quested at the gate at a safe distance. The alleged passenger was too intoxicated to comply with the flight attends requests to disembark the plan. I would have liked for the JetBlue flight attends to be more proactive or at the very least to keep an eye on the situation to ensure it did not escalate. This all could have been avoided if the woman's 1st request to change her seat to one of the many available seats was granted. Better ye,t for this alleged passenger to have never been able to board the plane in his condition. It was physically noticeable and the surrounding passengers stated they could smell the alcohol on him. Disappointed!"
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "When I asked if there was any chance I could sit with my family they were nice enough to change are setting. Just a thought if the setting is random when you check in for your flight somewhere the computer should at least work with putting the last names together just a thought."
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Pros: "The stewardess were so nice and there were no delayes. And we can bring two bags on the plane for free."
Cons: "They need to put more information for the gates so it is easier to check bags and there isn't a huge line. There also weren't very many workers to help people checking in their bags. more signs would help."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable with decent legroom."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold, but a blanket had to be purchased."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Jeramy was FABULOUS!!"
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
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?!"
Pros: "gate staff were accomodating, flight landed on time."
Cons: "Crew were rude and intimidating to a family with kids, including calling my wife a liar in front of them! Unconscionable. I thought JetBlue advertises unlimited snacks, but my daughter was told 'you've had enough' when she went for seconds. Our TV sets didn't work. Our baby spilled some chips and as the flight attendant passed he looked at us and said loudly 'I wonder who made this awful mess'."
Pros: "Crew member was nice because they didn’t know how to fix it"
Cons: "My tv didn’t work and their was no on flight usb phone charges. Could of flown spirit twice for the price I paid.."
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Pros: "Service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very comfortable seats in coach!!"
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Pros: "Everything, trip was great"
Pros: "I like the fact that Jetblue handled the on boarding ot the passengers fast and efficiently starting with preferred riders, then going from the rear of the plane and moving forward. They also realized the plane was full so offered customers the free option of checking a bag in cargo. I would have preferred if they advised customers before checking through security of this option as I would have taken it rather than discard with some bottled products. The entertainment video was great on board, they offered free beverages and snacks. The crew moved through the aisle fast and efficiently when dispersing the food, and again when collect the refuse. While we had a little turbulence, the flight was uneventful and the pilot handled the landing very well. Departing the plane was also fast and efficient, although takes time because the plane was full. Overall, I was impressed with JetBlue, and their flight team."
Cons: "I thought that although comfortable, the chairs and fabric were obviously well worn and definitely needed upgrading. I also noticed that the chair head area didn't have a removable sanitary cover, which I thought should be there considering the number and frequency of change overs per seat on these flights. This is necessary to promote sanitary and comfortable conditions."
Cons: "My trip of a lifetime to Peru (Choquequirao, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca) has been severely impacted because my luggage was not put on my flight. Computer record showed that I did not board despite my boarding pass being scanned and my passport number entered at the gate before I boarded. I left for a 6 day trek to Choquequirao, Peru without any of the gear that I needed for this trip. I had to acquire the bare minimum in a rush the night before leaving for the trek. I'm 10 days into my trip and still do not have my bag. Central baggage claim has been less than sympathetic and not at all proactive or helpful."

All perfect

Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Very nice people and helpful. Good attitude"
Cons: "Board was a bit disorganized and took much longer than I am used to even on full planes"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"
Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff"
Cons: "That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "I always enjoy my flights on Delta the staff members are always pleasant and helpful, not to mention a smooth flight. :)"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Cons: "Amazing"
Cons: "They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage"
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough.

Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."
Cons: "Old plane Zero entertainment First class seats worn thin and uncomfortable. I've been flying AA quite a bit lately and thought I'd give Delta another try. Too bad, it's clearly not up to today's standards"

I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time.

Late, dirty and uncomfortable.

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Amazing Crew! Fast flight!"
Cons: "Security"
Pros: "This was my first time flying out of South Bend and I loved the smallness of the airport and the option to take a direct flight to Vegas to cost family. No long lines and crowds made it easy to social distance."
Cons: "I would have liked it the seat reclined slightly or had the adjustable headrest so my head wouldn't flop back and forth while I took a nap."
Pros: "Employees from the gate agent up to and including the flight attendants we are very accommodating and helpful!"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Should offer free water at least."
Pros: "I paid extra for the added leg room!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish there was at least a free beverage."
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Cons: "You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port."
Pros: "the crew was very welcoming. and the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable. however I can understand because of the price."
Pros: "Crew there and back. Professional and fun"
Cons: "When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful; plane was clean; flight was on time; no problems"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Runs late but no updated to arrival board, the attendant was rude when asked what time they thought the plane might be leaving."
Pros: "Our trip to Knoxville was great- no complaints. A/c cool— flight on time."
Cons: "Trip back to FLL air was not working well. Plane dirty as well."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours."
Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "Standard no frills airline"
Cons: "No room for overhead bags near my seat. I paid $25 to sit up front and $35 for a carry on. I paid extra with the goal of deplaining first. Crew refused to allow me to stow the bags in the front bin, had to place it 10 rows back. If I didn’t run to my gags as soon as Wen landed would have been the last to deplane. If allegiant is going to charge so much for carry on, they need to find a way so front passengers are not squeezed out like this."
Pros: "Actual flight good and crew very accommodating"
Cons: "Seats poor. Waited 40 mins before the luggage entered the belt for pickup. Held us up for transportation to rent lot."
Pros: "terminal small and easy to navigate"
Cons: "flight was late because of a "valve issue" in terminal, then on the plane pilot tells us its a computer issue and just needed to "reboot" plane computer because it's a computer with wings. Not sure if either of those reasons were true."
Pros: "Great direct flight to many destinations smaller airports less wait time"
Cons: "seats are crowded"
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "I fly this airline airline quite a bit because I have family in the mountains of North Carolina. I have never had a problem with them, I fly out of Fort Lauderdale to Asheville, it's a quick one and a half hour flight. The flight crew is always professional and courteous."
Cons: "Cut my already short trip even shorter. I used this airline twice now, and both times I was delayed."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines."
Cons: "- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual."

Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."
Pros: "I liked that they had a direct flight from Los Angeles to Bellingham."
Cons: "The delays were horrendous and a google search reveals this to be so common it makes me wonder if it's not part of their business model. Like, so bad I ended up booking a return flight on Alaska and just ate the extra $300."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid for 1A. Was moved because "the crew needed the seat" to the middle. There were SO many open seats. Was unacceptable."
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."
Pros: "The fare"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. There's NOTHING complimentary not even water"
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."
Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"

Cons: "We sat on the runway in Fort Lauderdale for an hour and 15 minutes. Very aggravating"
Cons: "For budget airline it’s awesome. Couldn’t ask more"
Pros: "I was in row 2 and it had reclining seats."
Cons: "They did not have enough people to push wheelchairs at Mac Arthur airport. My husband had to push me & since we don’t know the airport we had to ask every step we went, they had no signs leading the way."
Pros: "There is a dispute going on about who cleans the planes and so the crew won’t help thereby placing the customer in the middle of the dispute. 45 minutes late because of this nonsense."
Cons: "Someone clean the damn plane and get the PAYING customers on their way."
Pros: "Great first experience on Frontier"
Cons: "To know if water was free."
Pros: "Unfortunately, None of the seats recline"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that Frontier didn't wait until the last minute to tell us the flight was delayed (twice)"
Cons: "Everything else. There was no food. The seats did not recline (confirmed by flight attendant), no entertainment, baggage claim took over 45 minutes. The tickets were not that cheap, especially after being nickel-and-dimed for every little thing. But for zero amenities I would hope they would at leas"
Pros: "The anouncements in Islip explaining the boarding process and warning people about bringing carry ons that they did not pay for were clear, loud and understandable. Crew was great."
Cons: "the seats hurt my butt, not sure if I could do a longer flight on this plane"
Cons: "3 hours delayed. I was late for a important interview. I lost money because of it"
Pros: "Great way to be able to travel more often with such low fares and available flights."
Pros: "The passengers"
Cons: "Staff rude. Plane not fully supplied. Frontier doesn’t treat Reserve, National Guard or Retired military the same as Active Duty. Frontier made me feel like my 20 years of service to this country meant nothing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Really bad seats, no room for you. Carry on - charge $50. No free beverages ."
Cons: "It was a real nightmare. too many hours late. My worst flight experience"
Cons: "There is a charge to check bags and a charge for snacks and drinks. Whatever happened to complimentary incidentals?"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "No room no entertainment for a somewhat long flights"
Pros: "Frontier provides flights at a greatly discounted rate. The catch is that's all you get. Everything else cost extra. I'm good with that. From Point A to Point B as cheap as possible. That leaves more money for fun on the ground."
Cons: "Comfort of the cheap seats is a bit lacking, but again you can pay extra for better seats. Food service, i.e. snacks and drinks cost extra."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "1.5 hour late and they lost my bag. It just wasn't loaded on our direct flight along with 20 other passengers bags."

Cons: "Unreasonable delay time. Lost baggage. Mediocre customer service for the lost baggage."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Bag check was a nightmare and the line took forever. There should be a line only for dropping bags and not assisting customers. It took a long time to get my bag at baggage claim (almost an hour). They used the same carousel as two other flights leading to frequent baggage jams. Not sure if that's their fault or the Atlanta airports."
Cons: "We came to Trenton airport a half hour before because had a problem with finding parking - and the staff would not come out to check us in or let us board the flight - staff and security were terribly rude to us!! We're highly educated competent young women and they treated us like dirt. Then they charged us $99 extra per person. We would have been better off flying jet blue. And we didn't check in because it was an extra $25 fee This is RIDICULOUS !"
Pros: "The first half of my flight was cancelled without notice no agent at airport awful so I had to find another airline to get home for X mas the airline sucks and should close down. Never again."
Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with only 2 hour notice, so already at airport. Staff was overwhelmed, so no help at counter. After 8 days, still waiting for refund."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to snow storm. Frontier wouldn't compensate us for anything. Horrible service. Never flying with Frontier again"
Pros: "Frontier got me where I needed to go on time with no hassles."

Pros: "The crew and conditions in which the planes were maintained. Our pilots were fantastic"
Cons: "The inexperienced personnel at the check in at Pittsburgh terminal who messed up my boarding pass, didn't have that I paid for carry on on the pass, this caused me further problems in Denver. Please train your people better."
Pros: "On time, enough room in seats and seat belts weren't too tight. My fight attendant gave me hot water with lemon upon request at no charge. (I had a cough. )"
Cons: "Lightening storm on the flight to St. Louis caused an hour delay awaiting our luggage. I brought my own food, knowing you have to pay extra for that."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for 45 mins. The seats are the absolute WORST on frontier I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Also watched the pilot stand outside of the cockpit for 15 mins having a conversation. I didn't feel safe."
Cons: "It took over 45 minutes for luggage to show up"
Cons: "Friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Frontier has become the worst airline in recent years.The reasons I feel this way are too many to count but overall it has been a terrible experience fly Frontier, consistently. It is a huge disappointment as Frontier used to be my favorite."
Cons: "Great staff!"
Pros: "The flight attendents were friendly!"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the chairs did not recline! That I was treated like garbage when I was Tryin to print my boarding pass, but once I pulled my military ID there whole attitude changed! There was no complementary beverage! All other air lines serve drinks free! Non alcoholic drinks should be free! This is the only airline that don't offer that service! I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Service."
Cons: "I really don't like Airlines that nickle& dime the consumer and Frontier is one of these airlines. A good fare to start, but then you spend more at the end. In this case, I spend $108 + tax and fees more than if I would had gone with the competition. Life and learn. First time flying with Frontier and I will not say it would be the last, but this airlines had been but to the end of my list of choices for airlines."
Cons: "Why do you not offer free beverages like every other airline?"
Pros: "Not much more to say. It was a very early morning flight. Boarding was fast and smooth. The crew was competent, professional, and friendly. Left on time, arrived on time. All in all very nice trip. Leaving from TTN was an absolute PLEASURE especially when compared to EWR or even LGA. Will certainly do it again next time! Kudos to you Frontier!"
Pros: "haha food??? which food"
Cons: "everything / super delayed flight"
Pros: "I booked Frontier for the low price. But after going to a farther away airport and paying for bags and seats and drinks and sitting in an uncomfortable seat, I am not so sure it was a great deal. I am happy that I did pay less than other airlines even with the cost of checking a bag (less cost than carrying one one) and for the seat. Because it is more costly to carry on a bag, hardly anyone did leaving lots of room in the overhead compartments and speeding up boarding and deplaning considerably. Snacks and drinks were reasonably priced and lower cost than in the airport. Only snacks like chips and beef jerky are available so if you want food, bring your own. Flight attendants were friendly. My bag arrived on the same flight that I did and it was in good condition. We were reasonably close to on time."
Cons: "Seats are short front to back and don't recline. There was barely enough room between seats to force by backpack down to the floor and almost no room on the floor to hold it leaving me with no where to put my feet except on top of it. My legs are long and about 1/2 of my leg was not supported by the seat. This was manageable for a short flight but I would certainly not book a long flight with these seats. We spent considerable time on the tarmac waiting at both ends. I am not clear on the delay at the beginning of each flight. The delay at the end was related to Frontier only having 1 gate at each airport so we had to wait until it was free. Yes, we landed 20 minutes ahead of time, but we got into the gate 20 minutes late - meaning sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Bags were slow to come up. Probably because everyone checked them so there were many."
Pros: "The people who work in the airport are so helpful and the people on the flight were so friendly. It is always a pleasure to fly Frontier."
Pros: "The nonstop flight made it easy to get to Florida"
Cons: "After a three hour delay-should have fed us. A 25 dollar coupon to be used on frontier within 90 days is useless."
Pros: "Boarding was timely and efficient. The Crew was friendly."
Cons: "You pay for f*cking water! WTF! Seats don't recline seats are uncomfortable No Direct TV anymore No in flight magazine pay for 1st piece of checked luggage pay for carry on you pay for seat selection, I like window seats $$$ Frontier USED to be my favorite airline. Back to United and Alaska I guess Overall, just a terrible experience. If I had the time I would picket their check in area warning passengers about their upcoming nightmare."
Pros: "Friendly service, punctual."
Cons: "Fares everywhere! Aisle seat, carry-on bag, even water on board."
Pros: "HORRIBLE lending.."
Cons: "....."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "The flight got delayed and I kept telling them I wasn’t going to make it to my connection. After waiting two hours and making us get off the plane, the told me as we boarded that I wasn’t going to make it to my connecting flight. Instead of immediately helping, I had to wait in line for more than an hour while a lot of planes I could’ve been in were leaving. Finally they switched me to another airline, leaving at the time I was supposed to arrive to Dominican Republic, at noon, and missing a beach day. Worse of all, they could not even spare a $5 allowance for breakfast."
Pros: "The isle seat, the price, tsa"
Cons: "Had a great trip."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "We were kept informed frequently during the delay"
Cons: "a 2 hour delay, but we know those things sometimes happen."
Pros: "The seats were hard and uncomfortable. They charge for everything even a carry on bag. Seats don’t recline well."
Cons: "The landing was horrible. The pilot bounce the plane and landed to fast."
Pros: "If you are traveling with little to no luggage this is the best bang for your buck travel airline in the industry."
Cons: "Nothing at all. Customer service is horrible, I had to teviik with another airline at double the price"
Cons: "My father is a tall man with severe realtors leg syndrome. I wish the flight could give him extra leg room seats although he generally has to stand the entire flight"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly."
Cons: "Comfort on seats was terrible. 3 hours flight and on first hour and a half I wished plane arrives faster to get rid of that seat."
Pros: "Left early. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Actually departed early and arrived early, flight"
Pros: "The fare made it affordable to travel. The Spirit website had great explanations!"
Cons: "The fare is great and the explanations of how it all works on the website is great, but difficult to get all you need in a bag of the required size."
Pros: "Good service by the attendants."
Cons: "There was a 3 hr wait on the tarmac turning a 3 hour trip to a 6 hour one due to head counts tying to fill as many seats as possible and then weather all while in a crowded plane with small seating space and expensive baggage fees."
Cons: "We canceled the trip an hour before boarding and as it was a trip with my family to know Chicago very short, we could not go. This company does not respect customers and has not returned the money from the tickets, besides that I had to pay a penalty at the hotel where I had a reservation. It's a disaster. I'm not going to buy tickets with that company."
Pros: "Plane was clean and new"
Cons: "Baggage fees outrageous. Don't expect a free soda. Nickel and dime you. You think you are getting a cheap flight until you add all these things."
Pros: "Clean. On time & courteous."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or helpful."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable"
Cons: "Price of luggage"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and everything went very smoothly"
Cons: "I'm 5'10 and my husband is 6'3" and our knees got bonked up because there was not adequate leg room. Also the seats are vinyl and not well-padded and do not breathe, making it a very hot and uncomfortable seat. But you get what ypu pay for, right?"

Cons: "The seats were small & tight other than the seats being uncomfortable the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Flight was mediocre Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Additional fees for seat and carry on bag"
Pros: "Worse worst customers service. Flight was cancelled. They don't really care for their customers. No compensation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "They would not allow us to work with other airlines to get to our destination."
Pros: "on time boarding, pleasant crew."
Cons: "should serve coffee or water."
Pros: "Took off on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "You ask us to rate entertainment, food and comfort. There was none. There was no entertainment options available. Food was available for purchase and the selections were not appetitizing or appealing. There was even a charge for water. Comfort was non existing. The seats have almost no padding and they are non adjustable not to mention that there is no leg room. I guess you get what you pay for. The base cost of the flight was reasonable, but by the time you pay for checked and carry-on luggage, you are at about the same price point as other airline and the provide entertainment, snacks, free soft drinks and water. In the future, this will be my absolute last choice."
Pros: "There was nothing enjoyable about this flight."
Cons: "I was so thirsty the entire flight. Not even water for guests."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Multiple delays, excessive baggage fees"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The plane is old and dirty, they always try and charge you for every little thing so your flight actually ends up more expensive than a flight with all the luxuries one would expect. Never flying Spririt again. Horrible service and I will make sure to inform everyone who asks about Sprirt."
Cons: "Flight was delayed upon 2 emails and at the gate. went for breakfast. At Our return with more than 30 min to spare the flight had pussed out and had left on regular scheduled time. There were about 30 passengers stranded and scrambling to find flights with no help from spirit or its customer service people. May I add that the delay was still showing the 54 min delay time at the gate after The plane had left! (Insanity) This is after waiting in a baggage line for Over an hour just to be able to check a bag witch we had to pay for. There are plenty of airline I would fly before ever choosing spirit experience was terrible people were unhelpful and rude!"
Pros: "I liked non stop flight"
Cons: "I didn't like: - long lines to check out baggage - paying for baggage - baggage got lost"
Cons: "Plane was over 4 hours late. A flight to the same destination left 2 hours after ours was scheduled to and it was on time. Many customers lost out on their connecting flight or cruise. On the way home flight was over booked and some people had to get bumped off. Once we got to Chicago we waited on the runway for 20-30 minutes and then for our bags for over 45 minutes. Never again."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding info was not updated at terminals."
Pros: "It was efficient and they did every thing to make sure we were on time!"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight and easy check-in"
Cons: "Even choosing your seat is extra"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized. Checking bags was unbelievablely confusing...get clear signage and be friendly enough to actually help customers. Crew was uninterested in passengers. You end up saving nothing by flying Spirit Airlines!"
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight form San Jose to Chicago in Fort Lauderdale. Both Flights were Spirit. Had around 2 yrs to get from my flight from San Jose to the chocago flight. By the time i went thru customs (huge line) then thru security (another huge line) i got the the gate at 7:38 A. M. My flight was scheduled to leave at 7:42 A.M.. I understand that you do need to close your gates a little earlier, but i was not the only one that had the same itenerary and missed the flight. Its just hard to understand that you must have a record of who is missing on that flight and since you know they are at the airport (because we came in from San Jose on your flight) not to at least wait until 7:42 to close the gates. There was no one at the gate, the gate was closed as we watched the airplane sit there without moving for at least another 10 minutes. Its beyond logic and the only way i can explain that in my mind is that your record of competing with other airlines of being on time is more important to the airline than the customers themselves. Which is very sad. Then i stood in line for one and a half hours just so i can speak to someone on what my next step should be. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to miss your flight and then have to stay in line for another hour and a half in that stress? As i stood there and watched the couple in front of me being in distress and his girlfriend crying i realized how unfriendly Spirit Airlines is ti its cutomers. Then finally i get to the representitve to be told i can get a flight out at 6:15 P.M. That is 10 and half hours later. So i inquired, can we use another airline or even an alternative airport to resolve the long wait, of course i was told no without any explanation. So, i had my office search for a flight for me and they found one for 101.00 to Midway with Southwest Airlines leaving at 10:15 A.M., but since i was in a different terminal and would have to go thru security, i would not make it. Very frustrating to think since your air line is the one that propsed the itenerary for me, would not back me up when i missed the flight with no fault of mine. Afterall, Spirit sold me that Itenerary, they should have been aware that it can take longer than two hours to make it to the next flight. But, what really has me steaming is you could not even have more than one person to help at the counter for the people that missed their flight, because if you DID then i could have had time to book the Southwest flight. Due to your lack of concern about the customers in general my company nor I will ever use your services again. I know that probably doesnt break your heart, but me being in business now for well over 30 years,i can gaurantee you eventually if you do not change your practices, it will affect your bottom line. One last note. I overheard another frustrated customer asking if they will give him any food vouchers, and he was stared down for a few seconds and then a simple "no"."
Pros: "Crew and agents were nice and accommodating"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and I had to stay in a hotel in Chicago and spend the next day getting to Fort Lauderdale. Missed a day of work and inconvenienced my husband. Otherwise fine"
Pros: "Took so extremely long to check-in, get through security and board the plane. The seats were uncomfortable and dont move back at all and they didn't give me any drink the while flight. No entertainment which is fine but I just wasn't happy with their service. They also kept trying to charge for different things at checkout"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like anything"
Pros: "Flight took off on time and even arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing is included with the price of ticket. Not a bargain at all. Please take that into consideration when comparing the costs to other airlines. If you like to choose where you sit you will pay extra, if not they won't even promise that you will sit with your travelling partner and expect to sit way in the back and listen to the restroom doors banging shut for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "1.75 hours sitting by the gate. Rude check in staff. Rude flight attendants. Made me want to throw objects. No TSA pre-check. No reclining seats."
