Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "cabin was clean and simple. crew was friendly and efficient. flight was without incident."
Cons: "entertainment was very limited mainly to sports, cartoons, corporate news."

Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost three hours. Ver inconvenient for the traveler and the ones picking us up at our destination."
Pros: "Swift boarding & attentive staff members. I'd like to commend xiomara on a job well done. She was very kind, polite, caring, personable & helpful. She infused humor in conversating with the passengers & made the trip very enjoyable. JetBlue needs to do whatever is needed to keep her."
Cons: "It was all good"
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: "Once settled on the plane, everything was good, except the earbud connection mentioned in the "bad" box. The flight was smooth and so was the landing."
Cons: "My earbud connection was broken so I couldn't watch a movie, well I could watch it but I couldn't listen to it. Also, when I checked in, the guy said he gave me TSA Pre-check but then they didn't allow me to go through TSA Pre-check so I had to go through the line and once I was through, I had to rush to my gate and straight onto the plane as it was already boarding."
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Excellent I felt very comfortable and happy"
Cons: "Just the food"
Pros: "the attention of the staff"
Cons: "La turbulencia"
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "Quick boarding, plenty of snacks and beverages, and smooth flight. Very roomy compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Some of the in flight channels were unavailable."
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."
Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"

Cons: "The food was terrible: pretzles, potatoes chips, orange juice and the likes; besides that, the isles were very narrow and hard to walk by and last of all, the seats were extremenly tight and confining"

Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."
Pros: "The fact that I finally reached my destination"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The gate changed. The flight did not leave until an hour later a AFTER the delay. My seat was switched and the new seat DID NOT recline. I paid more for this flight because I didn’t want to reach me destination late at night. I still reached my destination at 10:00pm. I could have save $50.00 with the later flight, but I ended up paying more for less."

Pros: "comfortable flight, on time, pleasant crew and I was impressed with how a woman with a puppy was treated. I had a terrible experience when I went from CA to MI about 6 years ago on another airline. ( I was bringing my puppy back with me). I'm sorry I didn't complain about it."
Cons: "Delays with JET BLUE is becoming part of the ticket....is incredible they cant leave on time...everyone who has traveled with JB has the same complain. JB should address this issue otherwise they will lose customers."

Pros: "The flight went smoothly. Staff seemed attentive and efficient."
Cons: "Couldn't hear/understand announcements at gate or in flight. Uncomfortable seats with no padding resulting in aching back the entire flight. Fortunately, it was a short flight."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats too close and didn’t recline"
Pros: "Airplane was new and comfortable. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being charged for the ability to choose a seat and bring a carry on bag makes Spirit less of a discount airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed I missed my next flight and had to sit at the airport for 14 hrs"
Cons: "They charge for everything and don't allow you to pay for bags when you purchase but if they aren't paid for when you purchase then you pay more. The customer service reps constantly try to upsell."
Cons: "First, when I booked I was not given option to pay for baggage or choose seats, meaning I wasn't able to use the cheapest option. I had to spend at least 2 hours on the phone with a Spirit agent to get to pay for my bags before arriving at the airport at all - I wasn't able to do it online. On day of flight: the first leg was delayed. When we got to layover our final flight had been cancelled with no reason given. We were booked on another flight 8 hours later which meant we got in late enough that I had to miss another day of work. The Spirit agent at the gate in Las Vegas was also extremely rude. I also didn't get any phone or email updates."
Pros: "I was easily able to upgrade my seat prior to flight."
Cons: "They charge for a carry on bag, charge more for checked luggage than any other airlines, charge you if your bag is over 40 lbs (not 50 lbs like all other airlines), they don't provide any complimentary snacks/drinks on plane. Flight attendants all had a flat affect and looked liked they hated their job on both my flights. On departure flight it took over 30 mins to get luggage to the carousel. Will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Quick boarding. No frills airline. Want a cheap seat and dont care about other things like reclining chairs then this is the airline for you. Everything besides a small personal backpack costs money. Want to bring your normal carry-on thats $55. Want food or drink thatll cost extra. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing bad service all the way"
Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"
Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "All went well. We took off on time and landed 9 minutes early. Our bags came out shortly after we got to baggage claim. The bags were not damaged in any way."
Pros: "Extremely low price and waived baggage fees for active duty military made our first Spirit flight wonderful. Attendants were friendly once on board."
Cons: "Downfalls were limited legroom, the baggage check line at DTW took over an hour and many kiosks were broken and could not print boarding passes."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."
Pros: "The experience was pleasant. Nothing to complain about. The crew was polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The cost for things such as pop or snacks was a little high."
Pros: "I got to Vegas to see my brother that I haven't seen in 25 years."
Cons: "The whole plane ride, uncomfortable, tight seating, noisy!"
Cons: "Had no seat assignments until last minute. They were all confused about seating the last few people. Actually on the plane trying to find seats for two people. Spirit is the worst airlines"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant to interact with. Best part of the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Soda and water was not complimentary which is kind of a joke that a major airline can't even provide that service. Bag fees are outrageous."
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "no water without paying"
Cons: "It was not clearly conveyed when purchasing the ticket that baggage fees were not included in the base price. Thus, we not only had to pay to check 2 bags and 2 carry-ons for 170$, we also had to pay an extra 100$ because our checked bags were "overweight" at 50lbs (they only accept 40lbs bags) - and this was only ONE WAY. We will have to pay that $270 on our return flight as well. Ultimately our baggage fees cost us 4X more than our two ticket fares combined! Now I wouldn't call that a "bargain" by any means - we could have gotten two first-class tickets on delta for the total amount we ended up paying. We will never fly spirit again and will ultimately think twice when booking through kayak. What a bummer."
Pros: "It was a good flight except there isn't much leg room on your planes and it would be nice to recline a little. Also, the charge for carry-ons is excessive and makes other airlines more appealing."
Pros: "The flight was delayed. My bag did not arrive to Ft.Lauderdale even though I was on time at the airport in Detroit. Still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "I feel that this area needs some help .....leaving a person in a wheelchair for 15 mins.. I just got up and walked afterwaiting for the delay in Detroit was not a happy camper with my pain things are harder"
Pros: "Spirit did ultimately get me to Denver."
Cons: "It took over 48 hours to get from Detroit to Denver due to weather and security issues. The fact that these issues came up is not necessarily the fault of Spirit but Spirit did not offer any conveniences or accommodations while I had to wait for the issues to be resolved."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and simple. Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Great value at great price"
Cons: "Did not request food. Too expensive."
Pros: "It was the worst flight ever. The only good thing was the baggage clsim. Which we did not have to pay for."
Pros: "My seatbelt was broken and they came very quickly to fix it before we could take off. Flight was quite rough due to turbulence but obviously that was not the fault of the pilot."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting over hour for luggage to be unloaded, seats were uncomfortable, $50 for checking a bag a little crazy too"
Pros: "Efficient operation. Of course there was no entertainment and I did not purchase any food so I can not comment on the food."
Cons: "Having to wait 8.5 hours in LGA because the boarding doors were closed 15 minutes prior to departure and I arrived at the gate 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure because I was stuck in a traffic jam for over an hour because of an automobile accident."
Pros: "Always enjoy flying spirit. With budget airlines what I'm looking for is a cheap price and on time flights. Spirit fulfilled both."
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "My luggage was sent on another airline and another city. When I initially asked the desk attendent in Houston for help, she literally said "No". Spirit overall has poor customer service but this shocked me. Although Olivia who worked that same evening was amazing. I've been flying for 25 years and had never had an issue with any of the dozens of airlines I've been on even more budget airlines than spirit. This is my second time flying Spirit and I will NEVER make the same mistake again."
Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."
Cons: "Michigan to Vegas was far too long to be flying spirit. Uncomfortable and unfriendly."
Pros: "On time and really inexpensive"
Pros: "Flight was good. Plane was over an hour late taking off. Not good for being on time. Bummer."
Pros: "The flight was reasonably cheap. No delay, actually arrived early."
Cons: "The seats are tight and non-reclining. All of us had trouble with our ears painfully hurting in flight not just on ascent or descent. Bad cabin pressure I presume. No frills I get but at least use the standard 50lbs weight not 40lbs. Another way to get you in the pocket. Then they determined it by all bags, not one by one. Rip off."
Pros: "1 hr and 40 min delay"
