Pros: "Good leg room and free WiFi that actually works. Best domestic flight I have had in years."
Cons: "Checking in was difficult for me. My husband was able to check in through the cruise line. when we got to the airport the counter was not open. i checked in but did not get a seat assignment. When we got to the gate our flight to Boston was delayed until 3am from midnight. I tried getting a seat assignment but was told I had to wait until all the other flights were taken care of. I finally got my seat with my husband after 10p. I am a very nervous flyer so this was very nerve racking for me. But once I got my seat I calmed down. We always fly Jet Blue when we can. The flight itself was wonderful. And the counter folks were very patient with the customers dealing with delays."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding, friendly staff, smooth flight, WiFi, lots of TV channels."
Pros: "I had a very smooth flight from West Palm Beach to Boston. All of the guests got a beverage and a snack and it was a very calm flight."
Cons: "For some reason, my husband and I weren’t seated next to each other. We were, in fact, seated very far away from each other, but I was able to move us to window seats in different rows, but still we were seated apart."
Pros: "Smooth, great service and snacks, loved the gluten free healthy snack options"
Cons: "Too cold in cabin"

Cons: "Nothing yet."
Pros: "An overall very pleasant flight with great snack and beverage choices!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing!!! So friendly and sweet and very customer service savvy! Very impressed with this crew."
Pros: "The boarding process was fast and easy. Finding the seats was easy. The inflight snacks were acceptable."
Cons: "The flight announcer at the beginning of the flight was super unprofessional. They kept having to stop their script in order to laugh and giggle. Had I not already know how to do the safety procedures, I wouldn't have learned it from him. The seat belt barely fit me. Now, to be fair, I am fat. But, when I had to suck in to belt in, there was no slack on the end. The seat 31C has a busted aux port. I tried to watch a movie, first off the closed captioning didn't work. So I tried to listen. The aux port wiggled in it's casing and there was so much static that there was no point in listening. The off boarding process was very slow and uncoordinated. I understand that they have to off board in a certain order. However, the flight announcer could have kept the rest of the plane updated on the process. Instead we had to sit in claustrophobic silence and fidget while the line of passengers in the aisle did not move."
Pros: "Leg room was ok. The snacks were better than average, the plane was clean and modern and we arrived on schedule."
Pros: "Terrible customer service!"
Cons: "I missed my flight because the agent mislead me."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "My tv didnt work. Crew unfriendly. Seats didnt work properly"
Cons: "When the flight is cancelled you need to find a solution for those passengers who travelled that day by bus or car just to catch the flight!!! At least a hostel to sleep over night or give them back the money or let them travel with another company...not to wait 12 hours on the airport!!! Thats not professional at all!"
Pros: "I loved everything about Jet Blue! Crew was very friendly, the cabin was clean, the seats were very roomy and comfortable, the snack choices were great...it was my first time flying an airline other than Alaska and I was genuinely impressed. I'd definitely fly Jet Blue again!"
Cons: "The sound quality on my video screen was horrible and there was lots of flickering of the screen...but, hey, who cares? :)"
Pros: "Updates via email about delays. Good communication helps."
Cons: "TV didn't work. Air travel has become a miserable experience with so many people jammed into a small place. Having a distraction like TV and internet is helpful."
Pros: "Boarding seemed to be pretty efficient, especially compared to my most recent experiences on American. Flight was smooth (of course, airline doesn't have much to do with that). Got to my destination along with my luggage. Did not feel cramped on the plane and I was in a regular seat. Did not feel like I had to spend through the nose to just have a passable experience."
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours delayed. Plane felt a little shabby. Sometimes I found it hard to understand the flight attendant who did most of the announcements - she had an accent, which would have been fine, except that she either spoke too fast, or was mumbling. All that together, made it hard to understand her. Pilots never spoke to us. Not once."
Pros: "My first time to fly jet blue. Flight attendant serving our cabin was so warm and hospitable, will try to use Jet Blue more often."
Pros: "Great & friendly service Would travel again if I had a chance Great trip This is a serious airline"
Pros: "The attendants at the check-in desk were great. The helped resolve all issues from passport information to overweight luggage. I wouldn't have made my flight if not for them"
Cons: "There were 3 different flights to my trip. The first flight I was served a small bag of cheeze its and a Coke. I had two flight changes with only one hour to get to the next terminal check-in and start loading. No time to eat. That one small bag of cheeze its had to last me for 20+ hours travel time. It was all I was served. Wish I'd received a little more info on my booking info that would have warned me to pack my own lunch"
Pros: "Entertainment and seats were equipped with outlets. Flight was on time, check in was smooth."
Cons: "Charging for headphones and a pillow was a bit much!"

Pros: "Flight delayed. It was a worry to know if we would make our connections."
Cons: "seat and leg room adequate"
Cons: "This flight was probably great but I was not on it"
Pros: "The crew was good. Now fast but good."
Cons: "The food was pretty basic."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Pros: "great flight , on time, great service"
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on short flight"
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "The tsa is worthless"
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"

Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Very professionals"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Cons: "Smooth and easy"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Cons: "Boarding in LA was. Mess"
Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No complaints! I had a perfect diet coke and pretzels while I watched tv."
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Cons: "No tvs."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Very little legroom."
Pros: "We had 35 minutes from landing in MSP to takeoff for BOS. We came in on gate C20 and our departure was for C5. The gate person could not confirm the gate so we hailed a vehicle to take us. The driver added 2 more to our cart which slow us down appreciably. We got to the gate and they hadn't started boarding. My wife went to the Ladies Room and I walked over to the desk. The boarding flight was going to LA!! Our flight was going out C11! I had to ask a woman to go into the restroom and yell for my wife to get moving! We made it but I don't know how. Typical Delta!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"
Pros: "Satellite TV on this flight was perfect! I got to watch a football game live that I really wanted to watch, but conflicted with this flight. It was great! The leg room was good and the seat was comfortable on this short flight. The lighting was appropriate for an 8pm-12am flight. Crew was nice"
Cons: "nothing to note here on this one."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Im 6'2. My knees still are hurting due to the horrible leg room"
Cons: "Old plane. No seat back entertainment. No USB ports"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I like the fact that I was able to get on this"
Cons: "Delta is completely messed up. My luggage was supposed to travel with me to Boston. But it didn't. Delta waisted my time. Horrible customer su"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Cons: "Family of 6 with 3 minors. Could not sit any of us together."
Cons: "After a grueling 14 hour flight back to the states from Asia, got notification that my Delta flight was further delayed an additional 3.5 hrs from the layover of 2hrs, so I was at the airport for a good part of the day and did not get home till midnight. Altogether 24+ hrs of no real sleep. To add insult to injury, a Delta representative called and apologized, offering a $100 voucher or gift certificate. Raised expectation that they might actually do the right thing. I then received a Delta email that says "Your day just got better", except there was nothing but ads and enter to bid for things. Overall bad experience when I really needed them to get me home on time."
Cons: "Too cramped for a flight more than 90 mins - even in the "comfort+" section. This plane configuration is fine for much shorter flight routes"
Pros: "On planes with seat back displays, it was especially easy to travel with a 4 year old. Definitely appreciate the entertainment provided."
Pros: "Comfort seat upgrade. Access to Virgin Lounge in London. Food was very good."
Cons: "Video system on plane had too many commercials."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "They switched me to better seats"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "Very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "no food. no entertainment"
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."
Cons: "This flight never happened bc they didn't have a captain for the plane. Not a delay - not maintenance issues - just didn't have a captain so sorry your flight is cancelled. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Seat assignment very comfortable!!!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff, nice free snack. Overall good experience."
Pros: "Generally there was a king of a "good buzz" among the passesgers Appreciated the good budget value. It made the trip to see my daughter possible"
Cons: "I don't have any negative feelings"
Cons: "ages they don’t came"
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system, comfortable seating, decent refreshment service for such a short trip."
Cons: "The flight didn't board until an hour and a half after the original scheduled time, and despite boarding quickly, we didn't take off for even longer. Because of the long wait, it would have been nice to have been offered a snack in addition to the beverage that was served during the flight."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional. Food was good."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline. Old 737 so uncomfortable for coast to coast flight."
Cons: "3 hours delay, because the airplane had not been tested as required in a previous International flight. We had to change plane which caused a lot of caos regarding the transfer of luggages and food. We sat on the plane forever with a lot of confusion."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Not iberia"
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Pros: "The experience was average."
Cons: "While the brakes/ tires issue was not their fault, it's much more helpful to post a 2 hour delay (and surprise us with an earlier boarding) than checking with mechanics every 15 minutes with updates announced but no projected departure time!"
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment, the refreshments, the staff."
Cons: "Flight was a little late. Flight also had many different boarding classes that were seated earlier than us - what seemed like an abnormal amount of loyalty/upgrade classes."
Pros: "The crew was nice Smooth ride"
Pros: "Even though flight was full, everything just flowed - no issues."
Cons: "Video was for cabin and not by seat"
Cons: "Thought it was funny I didn't get a survey about my disaster trying to leave Boston, only the on time flight getting back. 6 hour delay leaving because of a warning light they didn't catch to begin with. Missed a whole day of vaca. No help once they deplaned us. Horrible flight. First time on American too. Paid for a window seat specific and had no window."
Cons: "Served drink as they prepped for landing"
Cons: "I don't understand why the carryon limitation can't be better enforced. I watched several people put multiple bags in the overhead compartments and nothing under their seats, yet those in boarding groups 3 & 4 often are required to check their baggage."
Cons: "Previous flight was cancelled so I never made this one."
Pros: "Was able to switch to a different flight as a standby"
Cons: "The 7:00 flight was delayed for an hour and then delayed for another 2. Meanwhile, the 8:00 flight was called for boarding. It was very frustrating. Those of us who got in line quickly were able to fly standby on the 8:00 flight. I felt the airline did not treat us honestly. I believe the reasons for the delays were known long before the delays were communicated to passengers. (For example, there was a new delay announcement at 8:00 for a flight scheduled to leave at 7:58). Had we been informed earlier, people could have made alternate plans if they wanted to do so (e.g. Rent a car or reschedule for the next day.)"
Cons: "Booked Brittish Air. Got switched to American. Have flown both in the past & would NOT have chosen American. Now, we will not choose Brittish Air either, as we can't be sure we are really going to get the high quality of Brittish air or substandard American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and responsive. Request for extra water/drink met quickly. Entertainment options functional but limited."
Cons: "Exchange students returning home to France were more interested in sitting with their friends than sitting in their assigned seats. As a result, our (2) originally selected, opposing seats on the aisle were not available without a fight--which we declined to enter into--and settled instead for an aisle seat and an adjacent center seat."
Cons: "Pandamonium boarding process. If you're traveling with elderly, you need to pay for priority boarding to help them get on the plane at a pace they can sustain. There was a bad sewage smell on the plane. No in-flight entertainment, not even music. Very unfriendly gate agents; won't even acknowledge your alive as they take your boarding pass. I hate flying American Airlines. Flying is lousy these days. American takes it to a new level."
Cons: "Flight was on Tarmac for an extended period of time without any explanation from the crew. The baggage claim was disorganized and took a long time to get luggage."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "My seat had a broken entertainment console. Flight crew was indifferent and would not collect my trash (drink cup, purchased food box) for almost two hours. the purchased food, vege chips and hummus, was skimpy and outrageously priced. I feel their attitude toward me was the same as a passenger gets on the average subway car."
Pros: "The crew on board were incredibly kind and sweet"
Cons: "The crew at the gate seemed a bit short and flustered. The gate area was chaotic and crowded. Not a good way to go into a red eye flight."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing...this was a disgusting experience"
Cons: "Absolutely the worst flying experience of my entire life, it is dispicable that American Airlines can get away with treating humans like this. They never got me home, and refused to refund my for my trip..absolutely dispicable, I am never flying AA again and I am NEVER using KAYAK again for doing business with such a revolting company, this is the last dollar of mine either one will ever see!"
Pros: "Business Class seat"
Cons: "People using forward lavs"
Cons: "Packed light with no toiletries in our carry on to avoid having to go to baggage claim. They announced anyone in groups 3 or 4 had to check their bags. We checked our bag, boarded the plane, and there was PLENTY of overhead space. Wasted 35 minutes at baggage claim."
Pros: "Arranging wheelchair for my husband in Boston. Changing from row 23 to row 7 for easier access. Pleasant personnel."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, esp. the backs. The delays, which got us in over an hour late."
Pros: "Rough landing"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the process was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the flight was supposed to be an 1 hr and ended up being 2 hours & 20 min"
Cons: "Not their fault, but stuck on plane in NY because boston was having weather. Just felt like we could have been informed sooner than we were."
Pros: "My original flight was canceled and booking agent was able to get me on the earlier flight."
Cons: "Stewardesses did not pick up trash near the end of the flight. I had to hold it until we landed."
Pros: "Awesome crew, great food, landed early!"
Cons: "No personal entertainment centers for individual passengers."
Pros: "comfortable plane, outlets"
Cons: "major delays, got incorrect information from gate attendants several times."
Pros: "The new Airbus A321T is so roomy and comfortable. You feel as if you have your own room, not just a seat."
Cons: "Wish it had been a longer flight! It was perfect in every way."
Cons: "Have they made the seats shorter and narrower? I op t ed for exit and extended legroom seating and I still felt cramped and constrained."
Cons: "Cabin pressure - my ears hurt so bad, I was crying. Did not experience that on the United flight down."
Pros: "Flight was easy. Attendants were OK"
Cons: "No funeral clothes.Daily medication lost.SO MAD"
Pros: "Assigned seating"
Cons: "Crew was salty"
Pros: "Having had a rough day of 10 hours of travel, arrived at Ticket booth to check in when I DROPPED MY HOT SOUP!! Mr. SAM B Told me not to worry, have a seat and proceeded to buy me another cup of soup and gave me a GIANT hug!! It's an understatement to say he surpassed my service expectations! he should be commended. This random act of service and kindness was witnessed by many other passengers. I"
Pros: "Boston is beutifull and cool in summer."
Cons: "Charlotte airport is way to small and smells bad. Very crowded. Distance between seats on tha plane is too small. Killing my knees."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "1 hour delay with everyone in the plane. They claimed the mechanics were waiting for a "piece". Shouldnt they check the plane before the people get on board?"
Pros: "It was a regular nothing different flight then what was expected."
Cons: "Need to develop the entertainment system to become at least minimumuly adequate. I have learned to treat these flights as buses in the air."
Cons: "It began going downhill at the United Lounge, where I put two chairs together to get a little sleep since my flight was scheduled to leave at 12:30am. I was summarily woken up and told that it wasn't appropriate to sleep in a lounge. I complained at the front-desk (politely) and was told ... "This is a lounge". Oh and yes, the Wifi wouldn't connect and the food was stale ... so I left, and found a very nice sofa in the concourse. On the flight, service was non-existent, whoever was in the galley was clattering things about, despite the fact that this is a short red-eye flight ... the coffee was awful. The steward forgot to give me my coat and I had to ask twice AFTER we landed and were leaving the plane to get it. By contrast, Lufthansa has daybeds and a special quiet area to snooze, and offer pillows and blankets. Clearly, the Germans are louche compared to Americans."
Pros: "A competent cross country flight."
Cons: "Very cramped. Having 2 aisles did help."
Cons: "All of the restaurants in the airport have changed to this "high-end" bistros. No fast food anywhere except the premade wraps and stuff at the kiosks. If you need food fast don't try to sit down and eat. My sandwich took 30 minutes to come out. Food was ok."
Pros: "The check in was great. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was very small and hot. There was no space for even my legs."
Pros: "On time in spite of a late start Gate attendants were nice and helpful Comfortable as is possible in economy without spending a lot more money. Food (pretzels and drinks) as good as possible without spending more money. (I remember the good old days when you got much more in seating and food for your money)"
Cons: "This flight I had a window seat and I felt like I couldn't get up to stretch my legs or use the bathroom. (I am 70 and 4 hours is too long to sit) I usually get an isle seat but ALWAYS have to give up my bag at the gate - my bag which you tell me I can bring ON the plane with me. I do not like having to waste time claiming my bag that you told me I could have with me on the plane. I can pay $25 for that privilege!! The flight attendants always seem like they have their defenses up. One even held up the people trying to board so she could serve a drink to someone in first class. REALLY?? They couldn't wait till the plane was loaded?? I gave this flight a 'good' rating because it was mostly as good as it is going to get with economy passengers needs stripped to the bare minimum."
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "Pilot communication was great"
Cons: "Gate and customer service agents are not helpful and not on the same page."
Pros: "Movie deal was enjoyable. But a tough week for the friendly skies!"
Cons: "Mechanical caused me to miss my connection. Exterior of 777 had paint peeling off the fuselage, which is a bad sign. Plane needs an overhaul"
Pros: "I was wirried about making the connection. Enddd up with an hour which was ample."
Pros: "Overall the service was great. I don't like being charged for having minimal luggage charges. The seats seemed worn and very limited space. The same amount for Econmy plus"
Cons: ". I don't like being charged for having minimal luggage charges. The seats seemed worn and very limited space. The same amount for Econmy plus"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, inefficient food service and pricey, and entertainment is a rip off."
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Cons: "I had to call the day of the flight to confirm the flight. Good I did because the agent said that my reservation was not showing up for whatever reason. Alex apologized for the confusion and upgraded the seats to economy plus, which was a great experience due to the leg room."
Cons: "Yet again, the internet was down so there was no onboard entertainment. Southwest gives you three times as much, for no extra cost."
Pros: "I didn't board this flight- the luggage took 40 min to come out and then I needed to go through customs and security."
Cons: "Poorly planned connection- not enough time to make connecting flight. Very poor customer service at travel assistance desk as well."
Pros: "Like the customer services and the snacks and soft drinks."
Cons: "After you get used to Jet Blue, it's tough to fly with United where there is no inflight entertainment unless you bring your own gadget. There are no in-flight snacks other than a tiny bag of mini pretzels or over-priced "snack boxes" for purchase. For short flights this is fine, but for 5 hour flights, it's a bit stingy. The biggest frustration with United is the small space. If you are a small child, great, but for adults, it's just terribly uncomfortable. Truly a "herded animal" experience."
Pros: "Loved the announcement guy, professional w/ a sense of humor he was funny"
Pros: "Enough time to walk from gate to gate."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi while waiting."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. Seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "No snack served"
Cons: "Great employees!"
Pros: "Crew friendly and concerned"
Cons: "no magazines; no food choices toward the end of the flight"
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Pros: "Courtesy of staff"
Cons: "After the flight was delayed a hour and a half, they said we would have complimentary TV access, but it there was no tv sign for more than half of the flight."
Pros: "The pilot was great. Understanding that all passengers were tired with traveling and the flight delayed he did everything he could to get us to our destination quickly and safely. I could tell he was excellent at his profession. Kudos to all the flight staff!"
Cons: "I was most upset that a bottle of tequila I bought in the duty free store in the cancun airport was confiscated by tsa in Houston. I know this was not united's fault but perhaps my discontent can be forwarded to the proper people. I went through all the correct procedures to transport this via a connecting flight and through no fault of my own had it taken from me. It seems like sort of a scam that travelers are told they can purchase these items and legally transport them home only to have them not make it through security at the connecting airport. I was not the only one this happened to. Bad form!"
Pros: "the flight was very short"
Cons: "DID NOT like the way the boarding attendant treated me!!!"
Cons: "Confirmation number N89G3L. Literally just look at what I had to go through to get from Denver to Liberia and back. In total; 3 cancellations, 9 delays and had to leave the plane after being boarded 3 times in a row at Houston. Unacceptable. I would like to get money back for this trip, as it took off two days of traveling and took us well over 48 hours of travel time within airports. Is there any way I can be put in contact with someone from United Airlines about this? Thank you."
Pros: "This was a 4 hour flight. A TV would have been nice."
Pros: "United airlines reasonable rates And sevices"
Cons: "The delays was awful I'm disabled wasn't offered no assistant to get from one terminal to the next because your flight delays we waited 3hours to go from Chicago to Boston then get on plane and wasn't offered but a swallow of soda that was poured out of a twelve ounce can split between three customers And I'm diabetic my sugar was low because the unexpected delay So that made a perfectly good trip awful"
Pros: "Space was cramped, crew inattentive, coffee was undrinkable and tv would not turn off or play movies."
Cons: "See above. Will try to avoid United in the future."
Cons: "Our flight to San Francisco was canceled"
Pros: "Free direct TV was a bonus. We appreciated the extra space in the United plus seating (which does cost quite a bit extra)."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. Good choices were VERY limited in United Bistro. No good options for people that are sensitive to spicy foods."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Baggage was not assigned a carrousel. After asking where it will show up, I received a verbal carrousel assignment. Almost a hour after landing, no baggage showed up. We finally found it at the unclaimed baggage."
Cons: "In front of the exit row so weren't able to recline seats"
Pros: "The cabin and crew were very nice up in 1st class. The food and drinks were served on time and in a timely manner"
Cons: "Plane was delayed numerous times before it was allowed to take off. I ended up being late by 2 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was great."
Cons: "The temperature was uncomfortable, air was hot, not cool. Thought the plane had a wifi sticker on the outside of the plane the plane didn't actually have wifi."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Plane happened to be empty which made flight comfortable in terms of space. Ticket price was very reasonable and included departure tax (274 roundtrip LIR to EWR)."
Cons: "Had to pay 8 dollars for TV and if you want Internet it's another charge. Five hour flight with only food offered being purchasable. Boarding process has become idiotic as later rows board last causing delays (should revert to old way where back boarded first which prevented aisle from being blocked as much)."
Pros: "Even though the flight left 3 hrs late it was very nice...I still think you should offer free Wi-Fi. ..and it wss nice that the food and beverages were free because we where late..Thank you"
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No power outlets"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and I was given no notification. I was only told once I got to the airport. Luckily the staff member I spoke with at checkin was helpful and put me on another airline, but only after she tried to tell me they'd sent an email and said there were no flights til the following day. I had to explain that I hadnt been notified, had taken off work, had just taken a cab there, was 2 hrs early, and due to the nature of my trip not able to leave the following day. Though she was very helpful I feel it was luck and the nature of using a small airport, not something I can expect. Either way I shouldn't have to explain and insist when it was clearly the airline's mistake. When I later checked my email I actually had never recieved a cancellation email, just an email saying cancellation was possible. Overall another bad experience with United. Flew American Airlines and was happy with the flight."
Cons: "I have handicape son and they didnt give seat together"
Pros: "Reasonable amount of leg room. Much better that the flight out, during which all passengers were squashed in like sardines (and I'm a short, small-boned person). United should stick with this model plane and sell the other one for scrap."
Cons: "Complete and total lack of food on a 5+ hour flight."
Cons: "No food provided at all. Sound was painfully loud over speakers during safety video. No way to turn off TVs permanently - kept coming back on with advertisements. Did not have enough room for all carry-on bags on board. Was delayed and no notification given to passengers."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "This was the first time my 19 month old had flown and it was a pleasant experience over all. I asked if the had a spot with an open seat next to it and they moved me so that he has more to wiggle."
Pros: "It's always great when the plane is not full and you have some extra room."
Cons: "I do wish that the plane companies would start to serve some type of food during a three hour flight."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "Crew members were extremely helpful and nice."
Cons: "I was charged for everything they could possibly charge me for, the plane was disgusting"
Cons: "Sat on the runway for an hour before take off and then sat again when we landed. A one hour flight ended up taking almost 3 hours total on the plane."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I’m still waiting for it."
Pros: "The crew was unbelievably friendly, assistant to those who really for medical attention and very attentive with the details."
Cons: "Hated the small space! Not enough leg room at all to move around! The tray will not pull out! Overall the space was a problem"
Cons: "Cabin tempature"
Cons: "He seats on our planes were really hard."
Cons: "Why can you at least get carry on without a fee, disgraceful"
Pros: "Once we FINALLY got up in the air, the flight was good. The takeoff was good, the landing was good...other than that..."
Cons: "The terrible delays of the flights! Not able to really have any room to move...flights are too crowded anymore and it's just not fun or comfortable to fly anymore."
Pros: "Did the job Arrived and departed on time"
Cons: "Not suitable for longer flights (5+ hrs)"
Cons: "Horrible delays and lack of communication to passengers about the reason for the delay. Upon arrival, further 20-25 minute delay. No compensation of any kind for the frustrations."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Card debited twice"
Pros: "Just the price to be honest"
Cons: "Not on schedule at all .. Missed my fly from florida to ACY . big delay almost 4 hours . not happy . im sorry i will not recomend this airline ."
Pros: "Last chance bargain fare to BOS"
Cons: "I wouldn't use Spirit if I had a comparable fare on another carrier Low fare a loss leader to market add ons that drive price up towards full service carriers fares Only for socks and underwear runs with single personal item"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines has so many hidden fees. You can bring one personal item for free. However, a carry on was an additional $59 per flight. Checking a bag was $62. We also had to pay to reserve a seat. All of the $10 seats were shown as unavailable when we were checking in. This meant only the $18/$28 seats were listed. When we got on the plane the flight was almost empty and we could have sat in any of the $10 seats. You don't even receive complimentary water."
Pros: "The pilots flew quickly and the crew was understanding about the delay."
Cons: "It was delayed by about 3 hours. I'm 3/4 on delayed spirit flights and probably will never fly spirit again because of these delays."
Pros: "How fast the flight was"
Cons: "No drinks atleast serve water"
Pros: "The ride was smooth and shorter than expected"
Cons: "all the hidden fees... The luggage was $52 for a carry on which is totally ridiculous. On the flight no snacks or beverages were complimented and the one soda that was had to split between the 3 passengers in the row the staff on the flight were also extremely rude and not pleasant at all. Messages over the loud speaker where not clear and very unprofessional almost as if were were on a ride at a carnival. A family of 3 were seated separated and the flight and were lucky enough to have another passenger trade seats and the staff yelled at them it was very sad. Also i was charge and international charge on my credit card for making and international purchase needless to say i will never purchase another flight from spirit"
Pros: "Very very inexpensive! And the folks were nice!!"
Cons: "The delay but it wasn't their fault!"
Cons: "Unfriendly help at customer service. I got charged 65 for my bag at the gate on an hour flight. Beyond rediculous. Next all drinks and snake you have to pay no cash accepted. Let's not start with two hour delay in Baltimore then 20 minutes on tarmak because these people have their heads up their asses. I will never fly spirit again. Complete junk!"
Pros: "Everything was good about the actual flight."
Cons: "The fact that it was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Jet seemed new and clean, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay!"
Cons: "The flight on the first leg of my trip was cancelled, which was a great inconvenience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I live 2 hours from the airport. I was alerted that my flight was delayed by 3 hours. I checked in online, printed boarding passes, and made alternate plans to get to the airport based on this information. When I checked updates before I left for airport, I found that the flight had been rescheduled close to the original time. I then did not have enough time to get the airport to make my flight. I missed a funeral because of this. The 19 emails I received (in order): #1 Delayed departure, #2 Delayed departure, #3 Delayed departure, #4 Delayed departure, #5 Gate update, #6 Gate update, #7 Gate update, #8 Gate update, #9 Back on time, #10 Back on time, #11 Delayed departure, #12 Delayed departure, #13 Gate update, #14 Gate update, #15 Delayed departure, #16 Delayed departure, #17 Departure,"
Cons: "3 hr deleted fly and change 2 times the gates without nobody tell you nothing about it ."
Cons: "Spirit airlines canceled my flight but provided no means for alternate arrangements. I had to purchase another ticket on another airline at the last minute. Got nothing for the rountrip ticket I purchased from Soirit, do not buy tickets on this airline. They will take your money and give you nothing in exchange."
Cons: "Departed 90 minutes late!"
Cons: "Why dont the let the back of the plane board before the front so I dont have to bump everyone while I am making my way down the isle. They nickle and dime you for everything."
Cons: "None I like. Will not fly this airline."
Cons: "I was never told it would cost me $55 to have a carry on bag! Ridiculous! $60 if I wanted to check it. There is no beverage or food service. Thank God I always bring snacks on plane rides. MY FLIGHT WAS DELAYED OVER 5 HOURS then we sat on the tarmac as the pilot informed us they were having computer issues (30 more minutes). There is absolutely NO LEGROOM! I am 5'4" and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. No tv or music either. It's like the Yugo of airlines. I would NOT recommend flying this airline EVER!"
Cons: "There was a weird smell in the row I was seated in. Passengers on later flight where excessively drunk and rowdy and this impeded other people from sleeping. My previous spirit flight made me uncomfortable because everyone was drunk in the exit row (which is supposed to respond in case of emergency)."
Pros: "I didn't get o to this flight at all. Staff were very friendly, but completely overwhelmed and inexperienced. They were told to tell us that we had to switch flights because we wouldn't make the connecting flight, but in fact it was because the flight was overbooked. They said I'd get a hotel and then I had to take a taxi to the hotel where there was no room - as the hotel and had already informed the Spirit airlines staff. By the time I returned to the airport for a new hotel voucher it was 3am - and I'd been at the airport since 12am. Mostly it was also crazy to see the situations of other passengers with that airline. The staff were nice, but I wouldn't even feel safe flying with spirit again, much less like I'd be well served."
Cons: "I was very surprised to learn that I would be charged $45 dollars for my carry on, both ways! This hidden cost would have impacted my decision when choosing a flight. In addition, I didn't purchase a seat another $25. I found it interesting that I was unable to print a boarding pass. I called customer service and was told that they can't print a boarding pass for me, but would report the issue to IT. I can't help but wonder if they were holding back my pass, hoping someone would purchase a ticket. There was no entertainment. Passengers in my area were over served, and were loud and using profane language to the point that departing passenger, several rows ahead, made a point to turn around and see who was responsible for the commotion. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "My flight got delayed 3 times and they kept changing the time at the very last minute. Plane was full of kids and babies crying, yelling and kicking my seat. It was a night mare."
Pros: "Price Quick boarding On time Comfy seats Clean"
Cons: "Seats don't recline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, they charged for carry ons and even peanuts on the flight. We were two hours late on the way to Vegas. We sat on the tarmac for and hour while our plan wouldn't start...3 times!"
Cons: "I was flying with Spirit Airways from Boston to Atlanta on the 5th of August 2016. Unfortunately, I missed the flight due to my flight with Delta Airways being delayed in Amsterdam. I had booked a return flight with Spirit Airways for the 25th August 2016. I understood, of course, that this was not the fault of Spiirt Airways that I missed the outbound flight. I went to the check in desk, explained that I had been delayed in Amsterdam and could they possibly get me on the next outbound flight. As it turned out there was not another flight available for two days. So I explained to the staff in Boston, that I would try and get a flight to Atlanta with another Airline. Which I was able to do for the same evening. However, I made sure to tell the Spirit Staff that I would be traveling on the return flight, and the lady confirmed that this was fine. My express words were, I know that I have missed the flight, and thats OK but I am checking in now and want it confirmed the my return flight is still booked and i am checked in for it. The lady said Yes , that will be no problem! She also gave me the contact number for customer service, so that I could phone them and see if there way anything I could do.I was informed this was a free number and when I phoned it, I spoke to somebody in India, whom I could not understand, a few minutes later my twenty credit was gone, so obviously NOT a free number! I found another Airline to take me to Atlanta. So I was happy in the knowledge that my return flight with Spirit was fine and I was checked in for it. However this turned out not to be true! I received an email from Kayak a couple of days later, to say that , as had not checked in, both flights had been cancelled. Of course, I was furious, I telephoned Kayak to see if there was anything I could do but they told me I must get in contact directly with Spirit, which I did. It was, once again, the customer service number, in India! They told me I would have to go to the counter in Boston and ask why my return flight was cancelled. At this time I am in Atlanta and asked them, did they realize how far Atlanta was from Boston!! I also asked to speak to a Superviser, at which point I was cut off! I then telephoned again and asked was it the normal procedure to cancel both the outbound and return flight, if the outbound flight was missed. I did not get an answer to this question except to say they did not know, again I asked to speak to a Superviser to be told no. I had checked in, as far as I knew, the return flight had been paid for, so I do not understand or accept that they had any right to cancel my return flight. I also had no choice but to rebook my flight with Spirit because I had to get my connecting flight from Boston on the same day. This cost me $211 plus $50 for my check in bag. Given that I had already confirmed with Spirit, this is a total disgrace and I have been treated very badly by them. I fly regularly and have never encountered anything like this"
Cons: "price didnt include normal sized carry on"
Pros: "Staff was great and flight was on time."
Cons: "A carry on bag should have been free like most other airlines. When you add on a $55.00 charge to carry on a small suitcase it makes the Spirit Tickets expensive especially considering the fact that most other airlines do not charge a carry on fee at all. This unecessary carry on charge for a bag is why I will not fly with Spirit Airline again because you are not really saving any money at all compared to most other airlines which hopefully Spirit will realize one day."
Cons: "All of the stupid bahg"
Pros: "Initially the price, but after all the fees, could have flown American for almost the same price."
Cons: "The airline is Vague, I guess if you read all the fine print and get to know the system it may work better."
Pros: "We got there, but had to get back on Delta/."
Cons: "Surprised that I had to pay for a seat and much more than expected for carryons and suitcases."
Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."
Pros: "The plane facility was fine. The staff was well intended and did their best to help."
Cons: "Travel updates were late coming. 4 hours before my flight boarding time, I received an email notice that my flight would be delayed by 9 minutes. While I am sitting in the airport at the gate, at the new boarding time, there was no announcement- and no gate agent, but rather an email saying that the flight was delayed 2 hours. They had no advance notice that the flight would be delayed until the flight was supposed to be boarding. There was no gate agent to handle the difficulties that presented to travelers. I'll pay more or take a bus over taking Spirit."
Cons: "Never flying spirit again"
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is terrible. It may be cheap but they are never on time and it's usually chaos boarding."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the last minute - For our plans it was a disaster. It was a big demage"
Pros: "On time and I was given business class seat."
Cons: "No coffee offered for a 7 am flight. Oh well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "It is absurd to charge 55 bucks for a carry on!! Also ridiculous there is no beverage service"
Pros: "Hadn't flown Spirit in years, and I was very satisfied with them."
