I only missed the flight by a few minutes but the crews were not communicating with each other that they had a passenger arriving for that flight. Because the delay was weather related, they wouldn’t provide accommodations. And it was 1 in the morning. So I missed a whole day of my trip and had to sleep in the airport. I will not be flying with JetBlue again."
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "yes is beautiful"
Cons: "food options could improve, especially since the area around the gate doesn't have very nice food venues. More movie options could help as well, maybe allowing people to use their devices to watch movies. Maybe that is available already but it wasn't highlighted"
Cons: "Great! No improvements."

Cons: "Gary was his name. I went up to go to the bathroom, I had heard the announcement prior to that and no one had mentioned anything about seatbelts or staying in my seat. I made sure before I got up. As I get up he approaches me and said "you need to stay in your seat, began to shake his head,"they mentioned it like 5 times", he then said. I really dont appreciate the attitude. It's not what you say it's how you say it. Work on your attitude Gary from JetBlue"

So with saying that I went to the airport with out a set number think my family and I would get bumped, even if the email said they never over book their flight,this was my first time flying jet blue I wasn't going to trust an email so the hole time I was worried about that when I should have been enjoying my last day on vacation."

Pros: "Good flight. The staff was nice, especially Chris. Nice to see complimentary beverages and snacks still offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "Seats are terrible, and getting worse every year, but thats coach on all airlines not just Jet Blue. Hard armrests, weirdly shaped bucket seats which are appalling in any other position than straight up with 90 degree waist bend. Thats not how humans sit for extended periods of time. A 5 degree recline is not a recline; its a joke. At least the tray table was bigger than my phablet, unlike Spirit where the napkins look like tablecloths on these ‘tables’. Overall, it is better than the cheapest airlines."
Cons: "Bad, bad and the worst"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour and we had a connecting flight IN ATL that we had to get to in :30 minutes. By the time we got off the plane we had :15 minutes to get to our connecting flight. We barely made it. They were about to close the door on us. Didnt really appreciate that."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Boarding is as usual chaotic"
Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Woman next to me with crying baby didn’t care that her baby’s head and arms where pretty much in my seat the whole flight. And the girl in front of me was wildly dancing the whole flight in her seat with headphones on and she get pushing back in her seat hitting my knees And every announcement the flight attendant made during the flight sounded like he was stoned and obviously didn’t care what he was saying"

Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."
Pros: "The Captain greeted each guest both on and off the plane !!"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "on time and organized"
Cons: "food wouldn't be enough even for a two year old"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, chargers and device holders at search station, very clean and great leg room."
Cons: "Crew was terrible"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Seating had more space, the crew very relaxed and good humour as well as professionalism."
Cons: "Well the flight was short, so not much more could be done on this particular flight. The restroom could be a tad larger but think was on an older aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing, really. But it could have been worse."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Did they run out of planes or something? They couldn't have used a backup? Plane was old and junky. Seats, of course, were way too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Clean. Rough landing- felt like slamming on the breaks too hard"
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"
Pros: "Serial delays of over 3 hours are truly annoying. 8 delays is just not real. It avoids rebooking for the airline. I got home at 330am which is just not right at 68 years of age."
Cons: "Communicate. This is the 5th flight with serial 30 minute delays. Crazy poor. Would not be accepted in any other industry. There is no recourse as a consumer."
Pros: "Wasn’t horrible."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be on time. Not packed so every single seat was filled. But it was as expected which is the best we can expect."
Pros: "Worst flight of my life"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the entertainment system was broken, there was 0 leg room, and it took hitting the call button 4 times to get water after beverage service (the second time they walked up, turned it off and walked away). I vowed to never fly American again after this flight."
Cons: "In every segment they failed & just continually nickel & dime you."
Cons: "The delayed flight was an issue, this caused me to miss my connecting flight. Punctuality is very important to me and should be to your airline."
Pros: "Aircraft looks brand new and it had ton of entertainment videos, games, tv etc."
Cons: "Why did you remove T-Mobile!?? It was the best, bring it back"
Pros: "It was actually a little early and that was nice."
Cons: "Not much room."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and the crew was decently nice."
Cons: "There wasn't food, but that's to be expected on a short flight."
Cons: "The airline left my luggage behind at dfw"
Pros: "When the plane finally arrived everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed at least 5x. We started getting delays around 1pm but our flight wasn’t scheduled to leave until 7pm. We were on a connecting flight so it was no chance of making the second leg of our flight. I used an AA discount to get a room in Charlotte but we didn’t get to the airport until almost 2am so I had called to cancel that hour before making it to Charlotte but was told I may still be charged for the room even tho at this point it was outta my control. It would be great if the airline took care of giving you shelter when you are stuck in limbo with no reason behind while you are stuck. American is a good airline but they seriously dropped the ball this trip."
Pros: "I like everything ."
Pros: "The gate attendant was especially helpful in advising me how to pack my bag under the seat without having to check it. The flight was on time too"

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Clean boarding area."
Cons: "American airline agent who checked us in at the curb side asked for the money. Will not use curb side check-in."

Cons: "how long i had to wait"
Cons: "Flight late, typical for American. Usual American Airlines rude staff."
Pros: "The seats new"
Cons: "Had to pay for upgrade in order to get a seat. The seat didn't even have extra legroom. Did not get early boardingveitger and I'm even a an advantage cc program holder!!"
Pros: "People was nice"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."

Pros: "Crew was excellent on both legs. Pleasant, accommodating. Good overhead storage space. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Cramped! I'm 5'2" and could barely get my underseat bag in and out. Very late boarding and departure. Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. And, of course, we boarded very late."
Cons: "No space in the overhead bin for my section because they were filled with bags that were much bigger than carryon size."
Pros: "On time, pleasant experience."
Cons: "A couple of slightly bumpy patches due to weather, but it was tolerable."
Pros: "On time, good serv in first class."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and very competent."
Cons: "I'm trying to wrap my head around the # of flights that are delayed or cancelled, when I fly on Allegiant. Perhaps, I have just had bad luck. The flight was delayed a total of 5 times for a total delay of about 4 hours. The original scheduled flight was for 6:35 pm and we didn't actually leave the ground until almost 10:30. We kept getting pushed back. I am not certain if it was due to weather (in another area) or required flight crew rest, both of which I would understand. There was no reason posted that I saw. I have a 10 yo son who has Autism and should be in bed no later than 10 pm, preferably 9 pm. I appreciate all that Allegiant does for the military, and therefore, will continue to fly on your airline. I will NOT, however, take any more evening flights as most of the ones I've flown on have either been delayed or altogether cancelled. Again, I truly appreciate your recognition of retired and active duty military. 8/10 is a B and can be improved upon with more clarevoyance and keeping on-time flights."
Cons: "Great crew and smooth ride"
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."
Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"
Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the flight was smooth and my husband and I got a full row to ourselves."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, no entertainment."
Cons: "I tried to cancel this trip but was told I would have to pay more in order to receive a refund. Very disappointed customer as I have traveled with Allegiant many times and the one time I try to cancel my flight, I’m told I have to pay a fee which was more expensive than the actual price of the ticket. Waste of money."
Pros: "Florida was amazing. The people were very friendly."
Pros: "Love Allegiant!"
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The seats were far too close to have any kind of real comfort."

Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Flights in both directions were late."
Pros: "Made it home safely."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac 2.5 hrs. Then plane delayed 10 hours. Then waited on tarmac 2 more hours. Horrible first experience flying with Allegiant."
Cons: "flight delayed 3 times didn’t leave until 11pm 3 hours late last delay because pilot was late. didn’t get home until 3am."
Cons: "Late departure without any explanation. TSA really under staffed."
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "That we made it once we were in the air"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay that should have been announced but we had to get alerts on line not from the airline but Kayak"
Cons: "4 hours late. No explanation. I have flown Allegiant 3 times. Late twice."
Pros: "It was exceervice"
Pros: "My kids and I had great experiences with Allegiant Air, thanks in large part to some excellent flight attendants. This was the first flight for both of my children (5, 7) and they had a blast. On our initial flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale the attendants even gave each of them their own set of pin-on wings since it was their first time. The kids loved this!"
Pros: "Great price on airfare"
Cons: "Long line for baggage check in"
Cons: "Ground crew at ticket very slow and inefficient. Two groups missed their flight because of it."
Pros: "After the delay, we were treated to complimentary soft drinks and snack mix. This was after sitting in the plane for over an hour, though."
Cons: "We spent two hours of the delay in the airport and then eventually boarded. However, another problem with the plane developed and we waited for at least an hour more in the incredibly cramped plane. The seats are bearable for a short flight, but they’re hard to endure with multiple delays. The boarding was also disorganized. There were two announcements: one for people who needed extra time to board and another for the final call. Nothing in between."
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."
Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."
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: "Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Price, service"
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: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The customer service. The plane breaking down and causing a 2 hour delay. The lack of compassion from the flight crew. The fact that the seats don't recline. The fact that our baggage was $222 one way."
Pros: "didn't like anything"
Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Slow to get luggage. Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The staff at Ft Lauderdale airport was not customer focused. They were disorganized and rude. My friend paid $5 for his ticket to be printed and, at the very least, they should refund that. I'll never fly Allegiant again."
Cons: "Not clean"
Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hrs"
Pros: "Very friendly staff very attentive"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable seating will probably fly Delta for the same price"
Cons: "Didn’t let me in on the plane and plane wasn’t boarding yet they made me miss my flight"
Cons: "Hospitality, comfort, fees for everything"
Pros: "The crew was ok The seat terrible, uncomfort, really bad for the back and no elbow room, felt like petzels."
Cons: "At least give a glass of pop free, the second to buy. The seat, that was the worst one I have ever been on. Sorry to be so honest."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Cons: "We were not able to get on this flight because of our delay in Panama City."
Cons: "The no cash to pay for check in @ airport"
Cons: "Flight was 1.75 hr late. Had to reschedule my next flight which cost $75."
Pros: "On time, smooth boarding process"
Pros: "Everything is on time, excellent service"
Cons: "Not yet.:)"
Pros: "Relación precio calidad esta muy bien."
Cons: "No sirven ni un vaso de agua"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour. This then caused us to have to wait over 2 hours on the plane to be able to get off. US customs was backed up with flights that should have arrived after us. This caused us to miss our connection. The connection time for us was 3 hours and we still missed that flight. They then suggested that it was not their fault and that they would get us on the next flight on the next day at night. We decided to get our money back and bought a ticket with Southwest Airlines instead. They lack in taking responsibility for their mistakes. Their employees don't care and continue on as if nothing is wrong. Our whole flight missed each and every connection. we are all here with Southwest ready to fly out in a couple of hours."
Pros: "Although weather was bad and we took forever to take off, our flight attendant was HILARIOUS and appeared to love his job!"
Cons: "We got our boarding passes in Costa Rica only to be told our flight was delayed two hours and once we got to Florida, our flight had been delayed another 13 hours. Once we finally thought we had a set time, it got delayed another half hour. We have been stranded trying to get home for over 24 hours. It has been terrible. I will never, ever fly spirit ever again."
Cons: "No soft drinks offered at all."
Cons: "Was told the only flight I would be guaranteed a seat on to Chicago was not until 36 hours later- So I bought a new ticket on a different airline to go home."
Pros: "Easy, quick"
Cons: "No battery charging points on the plane"
Pros: "The destination"
Cons: "Very disappointed with spirit. Their employees are the rudest and inconsiderate"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth"
Cons: "You think you've gotten the best price for a flight, and then you pay $80 more to bring your luggage. Really? I have one more trip planned with Spirit, and then I am done. I will pay more upfront with friendlier carriers to have my luggage and seat included."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and nice. Departure on time and arrival ahead of time, that's always nice."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra charges but now that I know how the system works maybe the next time it will be less. This is a no bells and whistles airline. Just gets you from one destination to another. That's fine by me."
Pros: "Organized, friendly."
Pros: "Roomy seats and seatbelts fit my large frame"
Pros: "Late again."
Pros: "It was delayed twice"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Absurd lines at check in. No way to simply drop off a bag if you already had tickets. Agents creating chaos. Never again."
Cons: "I didn't make flight cause they had wrong gate assignment on boarding pass and when went to that fate which was far from that gate they had closed doors and it was 8 20 for 8 40 flight. The agent at old gate called someone at new gate and said group of us were coming down but guess no one at new gate cared as the new gate agent acted like she didn't care and said not spirit's problem basically. Was such poor customer service and never will fly spirit again."
Pros: "Everything but online check in was good"
Cons: "It was very difficult to check in online"
Pros: "on time, staff friendly..."
Cons: "just before boarding time terminal was changed"
Pros: "Friendly and understanding staff"
Cons: "Absurd checking in process. Poorly scheduled and coordinated for hundreds of passengers"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They charged me $55 for my carry-on and $2 for a tiny cup of bad coffee. Boarding process felt like a free for all in a penitentiary. I'll never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Charged me $55 for a carry on bag... outrageous"
Cons: "Everything was horrible"
Pros: "I got there and back."
Cons: "On return flight sat on tarmac waiting for gate for a half hour after scheduled arrival time. Finally got a temporary gate."
Pros: "Was able to arrive in Denver, day I needed to for my sister's wedding"
Cons: "Luggage was a day late getting to Denver and personnel did not seem to care on getting me into DIA on alternate route when original flight was seriously delayed. My cousin & I needed to keep after them. I have flown spirit multiple times and this left me wondering if I will fly them in the future."
Pros: "There was nothing good about this flight. Even though the cost was not as expensive it would have been more suitable for me to pay extra and get home on time then a little less and get home at 2am."
Cons: "Everything about this flight was horrible from the service to the flight being over an hour late and the customer not even been serviced with a free drink or nothing. Will not be flying spirit again."
Pros: "The only good thing about my whole experience with Spirit was my flight back to Florida. And the only reason for that was that the seats were just a bit bigger than the other 2 flights I had with them."
Cons: "Spirit has HORRIBLE guest service in the Chicago airport. The people at the counter are very RUDE and disrespectful, and the Supervisors are even worse! They didn't try to help me in regards to finding an earlier flight, after my original flight was canceled, and they didn't even accommodate me in regards to finding a place to stay that one night, or a voucher of any sort! VERY UNPROFRSIONAL PEOPLE!!!!"
Pros: "I liked non stop flight and very nice and funny lady flight attendant"
Cons: "I didn't like paying for baggage and any kind of beverage and snack."
Pros: "Boarding was very orderly."
Cons: "Very bad customer service. The staff were unable to help due to rediculous policies."
Pros: "The seating felt roomier. Perhaps it was the location. F5"
Pros: "SMOOTH RIDE"
Cons: "THE DELAY IN CHICAGO."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "Table trays were super tiny, there was basically no room in the seats, only one bathroom was available so there was a line. Once we landed we had to wait in the plane for almost an hour until we started to deboard."
Cons: "Had to miss this flight because previous Spirit Flight was delayed and spent 8 hours at the airport. Never taking Spirit AGAIN."
Pros: "Planes were new"
Cons: "My international flight was cancelled at the last minute instead of just delayed. Said they would refund my flight and took over a month and several phone calls/complaints to make it happen. They get you with all the extra fees! Ended up spending twice as much overall since I had to rebook one of my flights on another airline at my own expense. My flights that weren't cancelled were all delayed, anywhere from 1-4 hours. I will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "No delays. Good communication.Non-stop service."
Cons: "Plane was way too cramped. There are so many rules with Spirit that you can end up spending the same as a major carrier if you are not on top of things.Hidden charges. The hub at Ft. Lauderdale has several Spirit flights leaving close together so it makes for a long security line."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasent, the attendants were awesome! The overall flight was smooth and on schedule! Not what I expected from the stories I've heard! I'd definitely fly spirit again! :)"
Cons: "The seats could recline a little haha"
Pros: "I arrived alive"
Cons: "Online dialogues confusing, misleading and unnecessarily forces personal information for marketing purposes. Flight was late. Seats were uncomfortable. Check-in at airport kiosk tried to charge for my carry-on dishonestly. I promised myself I would never fly spirit again but went for a lower price this time. My mistake. Spirit is horribly managed top to bottom"
Cons: "Only use spirt if you have no bags and no money...that's what I was left with..."
Cons: "Too many fees"
