Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Missed this flight by a few minutes because the previous JetBlue flight was delayed by about 30 or 40 minutes. It would have been better if the connecting flight could have waited a few minutes, then about 8 or 10 of us wouldn’t have had to have been rerouted and spend nights at the airport."
Cons: "Ground crew were antagonistic and need sensitivity training. After the year we’ve been through they need to “ just be kind”. They were unpleasant and onboard crew not much better and demanding with passengers when people tried to stow their luggage. As a teacher of young students we’ve all focused on empathy and Jet Blue could do the same with their passengers."

Pros: "End stupid JamCOVID19 requirement"
Cons: "There was no social distancing getti9ng on the plane or getting off. I flew jet blue because prior experiences have been amazing. This time it was shameful. People were standing in the walkway for almost 15 minutes because of wheelchairs that had to come of the plane. Disgraceful. And getting off was out of control. People jammed in the aisle to get off the plane. 1409 new york to fll."
Pros: "Space in between seats."
Cons: "Asked for a coke and flight attended responded they don’t have any. They have water. This flight isn’t for vacations. It’s for .... couldn’t hear the rest. Didn’t really care. I would’ve paid for the coke if need be under the current circumstances."

Pros: "Generally it was pleasant , crew were polite and friendly"
Cons: "It’s an absolute disgrace that the plane was kept at such a freezing temperature , even when asked for it to be made warmer, people were coughing and trying to keep warm. I will not fly jet blue again after this . Even the check in are was freezing. Why"
Pros: "Jeffrey from the crew was outstanding and entertaining!"
Pros: "Comfort and food"
Cons: "The delays before entering the airplane so that we aren’t stuck"
Cons: "It was delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, not a lot of annoying pages. Good job here."
Cons: "Entertainment was reset and killed the whole system. Baggage claim took 40 minutes and there were three freights on one carrousel"
Cons: "We left early and arrived 15minutes early but waited on the tarmac for 35minutes."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than anticipated and limitations of overhead compartment space delayed departure as several passengers had to surrender their luggage to gate check."
Pros: "Only my 2nd time on Jet Blue and this time it was that only two seats per row flights. The boarding process was smooth. I checked in online and had my pass on my phone. The seats were comfy enough & wifi was free along with tv. The flight itself was smooth and the flight crew address any possible issues beforehand. The crew was on-point with the routine but they had really great customer service. I usually don't think of JetBlue when looking to book but they are really winning my business. Great job overall."
Cons: "As with all others I've been on, airplane seats need more form."
Pros: "There was enough leg room for a big guy like me so that was nice."
Cons: "The pilot was late arriving so we had to wait for him to show up then because we were late our flight got delayed again because of a lightning storm near the airport. Other planes who were scheduled to leave after us got to leave earlier than us so I don't know what happened there. After I was finally on the plane my headphone jack would not work. I know it's not my headphones because I had just used it before boarding for both my Nintendo and computer. Also, the buttons for the TV are on the armrest and if you try to get comfortable you'll change the channel. When the flight attendant came around she just propped a bunch of stuff in front of us and since it was dark I had no idea what I was looking at, ended up getting a very crappy bag of chips. Overall was a terrible experience flying JetBlue."
Pros: "I was impressed that the entire team seemed to care that we were being inconvenienced. It was a very nice touch that refreshments were being offered at the gate and that we were told when the next update would be. All updates were on time. In addition, our captain (Mark) came to the gate and spoke to all of us expressing his concern for what had happened to us. He also made a nice presentation on the plane and got us going right away. The free ear buds were also a great touch. Even though the situation was bad, you made a customer for life with the way your team responded to the situation. Well done!"
Cons: "Our flight was more than 2 hours late. :("
Pros: "Onky 1 flight attendant did a wonderful job seeing to everyone's safety & needs in a courteous way with a beautiful smile. Plane was delayed due to weather & she handed out water as we sat in the plane waiting for the storm to pass. When finally off the ground she managed to serve drinks to all & pass out an assortment of goodies from which we could choose. Southwest simply gave out pretzels on one trip & peanuts on another. Thanks for the selection Jet Blue! She did all this single handedly during a pretty quick flight."
Cons: "The terminal had very limited area for device recharging at a charging car so we had to stand if we wanted to use our devices while charging. And there were not enough plugs / ports for all who needed to recharge. The overhead storage was pretty tight too, I really had to turn & shove my small-ish luggage into place."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, crew was very nice, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I searched and searched forever to figure out how to connect to the WiFi inflight. My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."
Cons: "Experienced terrible delays (16 hours) and a cancellation on my initial flight (spent the night at LaGuardia) then had to take a taxi at 3 am to JFK to catch a flight which was also delayed, causing me to rebook. The return flight had 3 delays. I have never, ever experienced such terrible service and delays on an airline. In addition, the airplane on the return flight was dirty. It was a horrible overall experience! I don’t know if I will ever fly JetBlue again!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable, quiet and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"
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."
Pros: "Overall jet blue is always my favorite airline"
Cons: "I didnt like being forgotten about when the refreshments were served . Simple mistake but i was totally parched while waiting so I definitely noticed."
Cons: "There was a crying baby behind me the whole flight. There were two loud, obnoxious kids in front of me. The lady in front of me had about 5 carry-on bags and took forever to get them down before she got out of my way. One of the men sitting next to me smelled like musk. The teenage boy next to me flautulated the whole flight. Worst flight of my life."
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed 2 hours without explanation. Check in process was chaos. Flight was delayed an additional hour once the passengers were in the plane waiting for luggage to come through. Once at destination, getting off the plane was delayed due to an issue with two passengers which required state police to come on board."
Cons: "was a good flight but no intrernet or tv made flight seem long"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours on our way to Cancun and on our way back it was an hour late also that was my only issue"

Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours late because of some airport issue then the computers went down for jetblue"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly Flight was okay"
Cons: "Female attendant was very unpleasant"
Pros: "The service that JetBlue offers is always excellent. The seats were comfortable and the flight was timely. All in all an excellent representation of JetBlue's quality of service."
Cons: "I arrived at Fort Lauderdale Airport 55 minutes before my scheduled flight and was told that the flight was closed because I was not there at least an hour before the flight. On my boarding pass it listed the boarding time and the time the gate would close BUT no where did it stipulate the last time to check in. I do think in this situation, they could have accommodated me and perhaps gate checked my luggage...but that was not offered. I had checked in online, had my boarding pass but clearly did not allot enough time to get to the airport. Traffic, post Hurricane Irma is still unpredictable, but think there could have been a bit of "wiggle room" in the rule. JetBlue did book me on the next flight (the next day), but I was saddened to miss a day of holiday meeting my son in Cartagena."
Pros: "Was ok. Always on time. The air hostesses going to FLL gave good service"
Cons: "On the flight back 875 the three air hostesses had little customer service. The manner the spoke to people were distasteful."
Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"
Cons: "Flew first class but still had to pay for internet. We also waited 20 minute in the runway after landing"
Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was helpful but left you alone unless you needed something."

Pros: "Crew was extremely hostile and rude"
Cons: "Smile and treat black individuals better"
Cons: "See previous"
Pros: "Very clean and safe. Practicing social distancing. Provided hand sanitizer wipes and snacks in a bag"
Cons: "When disembarking the plane there should have been more organization for social distancing. There shouldn’t be people standing over your trying to hurry and get off the plane. Everyone should stay seated until it’s time for your row to get off. None of the flight staff made people do this"
Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"
Pros: "Fly attendants have no knowledge of hospitality. They arguing with customers and refusing to assist, blaming on company policies. My friends were assigned seats next to a toilet. No folding options. One of our friends has a back pain problems and got stuck for 5 hours. There were seats available upfront and Manager Gina could simply change our seats instead of dry “there is nothing I can do” I am not recommending this airline."
Pros: "See previous comments"
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect flight."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could keeping us aware of the extensive delays flying in to LaGuardia. The captain made himself available to answer questions from passengers at the gate early on and I thought that was a great gesture."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better. Any issues with the flight were delays beyond the crew's control."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "I like how friendly the crew was"
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: "This was the most professional crew we have seen in a long time. What a difference a good crew makes."
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: "Timing of the flight and the luggage step by step notification"
Cons: "Last seat by bathroom smelled of urine"

Cons: "the landin n small seats"
Pros: "Plane was clean and updated"
Cons: "No negative opinions"
Pros: "We loved Jaimie and Dana with Delta, two super nice ladies working at check-in and bag drop counter. We were running late and a bit confused, both of the ladies helped us with the whole process, re-assured is that all will be well. They did so with a great genuine attitude. Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"
Cons: "More leg room wouldn’t hurt!"
Pros: "Nice upgrade since we didn’t have seats! Delta was a good flight but don’t ever wanna fly on Aeromexico again!"
Cons: "Had all my jewelry stolen from my luggage!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Flight home was excellent as there was movies to watch and and snacks twice. Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight to Cancun was ok, wish there had been a movie on that flight. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Smooth loading and unloading"
Cons: "Customers don’t listen to the Flight attendant"
Cons: "Your company has the worst customer service ever! You ruined our family vacation and just have horrible policies I can’t believe it! Will never purchase anything off your website again! You suck!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Flight was fine. They were especially generous with the snacks."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined."
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"

Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
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."
"Our flight was delayed by 7 hours"
Cons: "I don’t think so. Thank you!"
Pros: "timing and services"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Need better snacks on American."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, chargers and device holders at search station, very clean and great leg room."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed two hours. We arrived safe but still, the delay creates such an impact on traveler’s plans. AA didn’t even offer bonus miles."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour. Lack of communication and lies.."
Pros: "Miami based cabin crew were nice, but they sat in the back of the plane and talked to each other then whole flight. Pretty unprofessional. Chicago based crew from start to finish were fantastic."
Cons: "Miami crew from checkin to boarding were rude, demeaning and unhelpful in this extreme situation. Really rude, particularly the gate boarding pass girl. Haven't you learned your lesson about being rude to passengers yet? I won't be choosing AA again. Your loss, I fly a lot."
Cons: "Individual TVs, perhaps"
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival were on time"
Pros: "They seated my husband and I together. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I’m always in Group 9"
Pros: "second flight was delayed about 30 minutes"
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: "Seat was ok because we paid more or has a “status”"
Cons: "Nothing has changed and nothing will-services is nothing to write home about, with yr little pack of pretzels-i am happy to get safely to my destination and that’s all that matters"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic but seats lack padding which agrivated my tailbone."
Cons: "A second beverage service would have nice."
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"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1h30, no food or beverage served!"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"
Pros: "Crew were amazing despite all the delays throughout the day"
Cons: "The weather lol"
Cons: "We had a very rough landing into Fort Lauderdale on 3/29/19. Pretty sure we had a new pilot. It felt like she was going too fast and didn't slow the plane down enough as we were descending d threw on the brakes feeling like the plane wasn't going to stop. Very scary! Return flight was much better."
Cons: "In every segment they failed & just continually nickel & dime you."
Pros: "Because the flight was delayed the captain and crew did everything in their power to get us to Charlotte without any more delay than there already was."
Cons: "Only issue we had is that the flight was delayed, other than it was an okay flight."
Pros: "Plane is clean. Well kept"
Cons: "Wifi. It terrible"
Pros: "Boarding is orderly."
Cons: "Why aren’t seniors and parents with little kids allowed extra time to board? You have to pay for WiFi after the first hour? No kosher options for purchase in the food menu, clearly not looking out for all Americans."
Cons: "After getting us lined up for boarding we were told to wait due to maintenance."
Pros: "Arrived early in CUN!"
Cons: "Food selection"
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"
Cons: "The Emotional Support Animal was flatulant the entire trip. I was gagging the entire trip from the smell"
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by two hours leaving Fort Lauderdale. As a result of that delay I miss my connecting flight to Palm Springs. I was rebooked for a flight to smile Palm Springs the next day which I did not except. Then I was booked to leave Dallas to Los Angeles that flight was delayed also. To make matters worse my bags ended up in LA when they were supposed to be route it all the way to Palm Springs. I still don’t have my bags yet. Called three times and the representatives cannot reassure me of my bags on the way."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nisy airplane and hard seats."
Pros: "The crew were attentive."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The boarding should start from back to front."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Couldn't use WiFi to watch Netflix or YouTube so our 2 year old would be entertained"
Cons: "Canceled flight. Moved us to another flight IN ANOTHER CITY. Changed our second reschedule flight gate from one end of the airport to the other. NONE of the walkways worked. Total unorganized mess - this airline is run like idiots are running it! Very challenging as I have CHF."
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: "Lost luggage for more than 18 hours. Poor costumer service by baggage assistance: Too many issues to even mention it. Arrived in Cancun w/o luggages and connection to Cuba with another airline and no luggages for 2 weeks."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Some crew were not very welcoming (smile)."
Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Cons: "Delayed an hour. Don't think I've had a single American flight on time. No food or movies on international flight. No blankets or pillows."
Pros: "Just getting off the plane"
Cons: "Almost everything was nightmare minus the ticket counter people*"
Pros: "On time, pleasant experience."
Cons: "A couple of slightly bumpy patches due to weather, but it was tolerable."
Cons: "The crew at the boarding were extremely unpleasant. The all process of the boarding was ridiculous. The crew was disorganized and it felt like they didn't know what to do with the passengers that came from a layover. The all experience was truly insulting, the crew laughed at as for misunderstanding what she said. I sincerely hope no one would go to the same experience we did."
Cons: "Never made it to Atl all the flight was either delay or cancel last min notice .."
Pros: "One of the attendants was nice the other lady was mean."
Cons: "We had to wait over 40 min before we can get out of the airplane. It ruined my whole flight, they didn't have a gate for us to exit. Most likely I will not be flying with American Airlines again."
"Less over zealous woke flight attendants. Never again ! I felt more like a prisoner than a passenger."
"Everyone was very helpfull with bording."
Pros: "The crew was great and the first class experience was what I expected"
Cons: "The plane was late, there were no boarding group lanes set up at the gate so even though I had first class seats and priority boarding I had to make my way through a large group of people in an unorganized fashion to get on the plane."
"If you plan to fly United and want to watch a movie, plan to bring both types of headsets. ( 1 for smart phones, 1 old school headset). My flight going required the old school headset, except the seat I was in had a broken port and since subtitles were not available, I had to watch my movie without sound(fun!). On the way back, United offered the United app where you can access movies from your smart phone, except I didn’t bring smart head phones. Since I watched a silent movie going, how much worse could it get? Well, it got worse since no movie would even load. The crew explained that we were traveling over water and that was the reason, but I tried on and off for the whole flight and the movie never loaded so that reason sounds like bullshit."
Pros: "Non combatants."
Pros: "Nothing....old plane crappy service...the crew seems That they been punish to do that flight ...screens didn’t work...one of the crew members told me that I can’t change seats even that my screen dinner work because I didn’t pay enough to change my seat"
Cons: "To fly in another airline.... United ? No way what a lack of empathy.... never again"
Cons: "Screaming babies who’s parents let’s the run around, people listening to movies without head phones"
Pros: "crew were great."
Pros: "United Airline is lying to its guests. United advertise they will be middle seat between pesengers and we board a packed flight today. United is irresponsible and putting pessengers at risk of covid-19 exposure! This is unacceptable. False advertising - people paid for social distance on the plane bit encounter the opposite !!"
Cons: "United Airline need to be HONEST! United broke my trust. United need to update its message online and be honest - that they only care about profit during this pandemic!!"
Pros: "Actual travel was OK. I arrived as per any flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy on my fare rate. Ended up spending about $300 to check a carryon. (proper size and weight) I knew it was not included in the fare, but assumed that I could check it or carryon for a *reasonable* fee. Checkin personnel not sympathetic despite travel being forced by coronavirus eviction. Great fare turned into an expensive full fare."
Cons: "May be better food choices. Overall I was happy with the flight!"
Cons: "Took 2 hrs to get a drink after we took off. Need more help."
Pros: "The effort of the crew to do as much as they could. Even at basic econ fare. Profits dictate. People are crammed as much as possible. We felt like folding chairs. But what can be done?"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Late take off Tv selector did not work Super small plane and seats"
Cons: "On time, comfort seats, working tv Fire the old man flute attendant, he is unfriendly, rude,sarcastic to young black female lovely lovely trainee"
Cons: "It’s a united flight so any expectation of being treated like a customer that actually pays for a ticket is a bridge too far."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Cons: "Poor flight. Attendants didn’t turn on the a/c until plane was at altitude then would periodically turn it off."
Cons: "Out flight was supposed to leave by 11:10 PM. United kept delaying the flight until 2 AM when they announced they flight was delayed to 8AM the following morning. At that point we had to stand for 1.5 hours in line in customer service with no information as to why this had happened. By the time we were with customer service it was too late to go to a hotel to sleep, so we had to sleep in the floor of the airport. The flight boarded to leave by 8 AM but we were again delayed in the runway 2 more hours. The last explanation the gave us was that the copilot never showed up. I do not recommend flying with United Airlines."
Pros: "Everybody was wonderful. All the staff were friendly and the flight was great."
Cons: "I volunteered to gate check my instruments (which I NEVER do because it’s not my hobby, it’s my livelihood). When I did, I made very clear that I’ll ONLY do it if it’s handed to me at the gate when I arrive. It CANNOT go into baggage claim because it’s 2 $3000, left handed, vintage Paul McCartney basses packed in one bag. The gentleman assured me that I’d have it handed to me upon arrival. It isn’t designed to go through the rough handling of people I’ve never met or trusted. So I got to Denver and waited at the gate until someone told me, “oh no that’s gonna be down in baggage claim” Needless to say, I’m scared to death and I don’t even know where $6000 worth of instruments of mine, is right now. I wish people would communicate when they promise things."
Pros: "The crew was very nice & coopertive ."
Cons: "I usually fly jet blue & the seats are sooo much comfortable & spacious. I able to obtain a good price for my tickets from Fll to Newark & also purchased tickets for same destinations in April. For some reason I wasn’t TSA approved which is never the case with jet blue ."
Pros: "excellent service. needed assistance since Dad could not walk too well. airport got him a chair and he made his flight with no problem"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite, helpful and super patient with our kids."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "the flight left on time"
Pros: "Not much besides the boarding was quick"
Cons: "The crew was overly loud and disturbing. We were told we couldn't bring along a carry on bag with the type of tickets we had purchased yet there was plenty of room for us to once we boarded."
Pros: "Check in was easy, no hassle. No lines"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a direct flight from dc area to Houston instead of having to go thru Chicago."
Pros: "The flight taking off on time is the only good thing."
Cons: "They forced us to pay for a checked bag at the gate even though the person who checked us in said our bags were okay to board with. They charged more at the gate."
Cons: "Everything ABOUT THIS AIRLINE SUCKS.. the staff was the worst... no one knew the correct information and I suffered from that... my flight was delayed and a crew member decided that she wanted me to miss my flight... I had the worst experience with this airline... it was my first time traveling with u guys and it was so terrible that I would never travel again with u guys.... I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fairly nice and understanding .!"
Cons: "At first the flight was okay with minimal tuberlance , later in the flight the pilot seem as if she lost control at one point . Not to mention the landing was by far the worst landing ever . We were late and the landing was horrible , I thought we were going to crash. On top of that we were late which was a big inconvenience to find out my flight was a four hour delay and I had to be at work. I'm very unhappy . No reimbursement , no change of flight no courtesy flight. This is my first time flying and I'm NOT impressed at all.! I watch the girl throw around our luggage with mine being damaged as I watched her throw my bag around .! That is unfair and by far the worst experience ever!"
Pros: "Not much. I'll fly Spirit when available unless you update personal item measurements."
Cons: "Personal item smaller thanSpirit. Please update to reflect Spirits new size allowance. Despite careful packing I was disappointed that I had to pay $50 for bag check. Two weeks ago I flew on Spirit with the same bag and had no problem with their size allowances which are just a bit more generous than United. I had purchased the bag precisely for this type of flight. An extra 1/2 inch would have saved me the $50."
Cons: "Itinerary was changed the morning of my trip. I was not informed until arriving to the airport. When i spoke to the flight attendant of my original itineray, he was extremenly rude and shooed me off. The supervisor was slightly more helpful but ended up being just as bad when i informed him of his rude employee. Even the new itinerary put me on a delayed flight. One choice of snack on a 5 hour flight. Overall, not flying with united again."
Cons: "I didn't like watching the news and seeing you drag a man off the plane to accommodate your employees. That was heartless."
Pros: "Safe landing in windy conditions."
Cons: "Air-con failure delayed departure. No complimentary food or OH. Poor legroom. Nothing"
Pros: "Our seats weren't changed on us, as it was going to Florida"
Pros: "Nothing at all literaly"
Cons: "Walked in with 45 mins to spare my girlfriend took JetBlue we got there at the same time they put my girlfriend on united put me on a flight a hour later on stand by I didn't know what this meant I don't fly often come to find out the man at the front basically just screwed me they tell me there are no more seats I need to go on a flight that was originally for 5 but delayed to 6 obviously now I am upset I am admittedly easing my voice who wouldn't to speak to a manager a man tells me to come down or he is getting security and I will be removed I say once more I want a manger he gets security THEN GET THIS THAT WAS THE MANAGER LOL who just did not want to help because he is lazy and dosent like his job then when 6 30 finally rolls around the temperature in the plane had to be on 80 at the end of my flight my shorts were soaked in sweat DONOT EVER FLY UNITES EVER"
Cons: "It took roughly 40 minutes to get the luggage form the middle of terminal B to the end. O'Hare is consistently the worst airport in the world I have been to for luggage purposes."
Pros: "Timely boarding"
Pros: "The people that work for the company are good, professional...But: No leg room if over 6'; Everything extra $--water, $45 for a CARRY ON! $59.00 membership to save $9.00 off your bag; can you do the math? YELLOW advertising is just to make you hungry--but no food!"
Cons: "It was cancelled due to weather but now I can't make the flight I feel I should be reimbursed"
Pros: "Total waste of my money paying for business class with such an old plane. Uncomfortable seats, bad bad service, and no pillows or eye masks."
Cons: "One hour late. Space between seats."
Cons: "We have been members of Star Alliance for over 20 years with millions of miles in the book, and though I have avoid flying with the US companies of the Alliance, we too United round trip to Miami via Fort Lauderdale, flying down I was surprised that with the short flight the in flight entertainment was not free? We paid extra for extra leg room and exit seats, though what was left was given away free, which felt a bit unfair for those who paid in advance extra? Most traumatic was on the return trip, at the gate as we were removed from our prepaid seats, due to the fact that the ground crew checking us in asked us abruptly weather we could assist in the case of emergency, I replied, "Yes", but my partner was confused and did not understood the question nor the context as to what or why she was being asked! As I tried to explained that she was German and that the question had confused her and didn't primped reply, the crew stope us from boarding the flight, and demanded that our seats be changed for someone who could understand English! We explained that we both understood and spoke English perfectly well... But no one was going to reason with us and quickly removed us from our seats and had us put into the back sectioned which was without extralegal room and proceeded to give our seat out to another couple who volunteered... Without charging extra... It was appalling their behavior and unreasonable gestures towards their customers and at that a Gold member of the Alliance. We will no longer book flights with United no matter what comes, even if we have to fly around the world to get there pay triple etc. It felt a hint of racism and with the state of things, I do hope others take heed in consideration of flying with this airline. Thank you"
Pros: "crew, takeoff, landing and flight were good on each flight. no complaints there."
Cons: "from COS to FLL: first flight was late taking off. connecting flight was on time. this is a bad combination. i was literally seconds from missing my connecting flight, and that was after sprinting from one terminal to another. captain on the first flight announced that takeoff was delayed because they were waiting for flight charts to finish downloading. really? WELL THEN GET THERE 20 MINUTES EARLIER AND BE PREPARED TO LEAVE *ON TIME* SO THAT PASSENGERS DON'T MISS (OR NEARLY MISS) THEIR CONNECTIONS!!!"
Pros: "Late, very late. Kept saying 20 minutes, just 20 more minutes. It was over an hour and a half late. Poor communication. Lost my luggage and blamed it on bahamas air even though it got stuck in houston."
Pros: "Free movies/entertainment"
Cons: "No selection of beer or liquor or food. OK - A flight to MEXICO and you have no mexican beer, tequila, or anything even remotely resembling Mexican drinks yet you boast all the routes you serve to mexico. It was nearly a four hour flight. C'mon"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The person I sat next to talked my ears off the whole flight lol"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even though I checked in early I was not assigned a seat. I had to wait to see if people didn't show up to claim a seat. For a red eye it is difficult to notify family if you don't get on the flight because most likely they will be getting up early to pick you up at the airport. Luckily I got on the flight but the stress of waiting was tough. I was treated just as if I was on standby yet I purchased my flight ahead of time."
Pros: "The security line was the shortest I've ever experienced and I loved that the gate wasn't far"
Pros: "United flight fine but only one TSA person working and one security line open for hundreds of passengers. Many including myself ready to miss our flights. Poor coordination between airport, number of flights scheduled and AirPort personal working."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and easy. The crew was great"
Cons: "Everyone is so crammed together in economy that even just a few hour flight was really uncomfortable for everyone in our row and we were all average sized people. I am 6ft tall 180lbs and had the aisle seat but still found zero comfort in the seat and leg room. The gentleman next to me was even smaller than me and he struggled too"
Cons: "Flight was too crowded. No social distancing. The booking gave the impression that middle seat were blocked, but there were not. Everybody got up when we landed."
Pros: "The crew were great! They are efficient and everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The crew was good!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Everything, Spirit is the most poor airline"
Pros: "Nonstop direct flight. Appropriate spacing / distancing from other passengers."
Cons: "Departure was late. Seats are too narrow."
Cons: "The flight could have happened"
Pros: "There was one crew member prior to the flight that was very helpful."
Cons: "The captain wasn’t prepared, flight experienced a 20 minute weather delay yet we needed to return to the gate for more fuel. I’ve now had two flights with Spirit and both were delayed longer than 2 hours unnecessarily."
Cons: "Spirit charges you for EVERYTHING. $55 for carry-ons seems outrageous. To select our seats, it was an additional fee. We did not pay the fee because we don’t care where we sit, but they sat us (me and my minor children) separately. Middle seats are not blocked, so social distancing is impossible. They are continuing to sell snacks and taking cards and cash. Safety does not seem to be top of mind, which is concerning to say the least."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Don’t expect comfort or amenities. I was looking for this flight time, so I booked this flight. Prices were not better, so go with a better airlines. You’ll be happy you did."
Cons: "Hidden fees everywhere..."
Cons: "Everything honestly. The clarity of communication was absolutely terrible. We were strung along for 6 hours about a delay they knew was not going to be short. They led us to believe it would be a few hours even though they knew the had no crew to fly the inbound flight. Boarding process was amateur."
Pros: "The crew was absolutely wonderfull. They were polite, helpfull and one women had us laughing all the time. (flight 705)"
Cons: "Not a variety to eat-Luggage prices high"
Pros: "Quick flight that’s it"
Cons: "We came 2 h before boarding time, we stayed in first line to just get in then second line to have a boarding pass. We could not get the boarding passes so we have to stay in the 3 rd line to see the agent.. it took 1h 15 min just to get the boring passes !!! Then 40 lb only for 50$ it’s rediculous!!! Carry on 55$ !! Seats not reclining!! We almost missed out flight !! I hate Spirit airlines!! They are not cheap but service is poor and very cheap!! Even airplanes are made cheap .. but it’s quick flight into some destinations and customers just force to take it"
Cons: "I had to pay $55.00 just for a small bag, I don't like it"
Pros: "The actual flight( taxi, takeoff, cruise, approach, landing)"
Cons: "I am writing this review while waiting for my luggage. IT’S BEEN one hour. The ground crew wasn’t ready at ATL to guide the plane in, we had to wait. The boarding process was disorganized, with only 2 folks available to help our citizen on wheelchairs. My flight took off from Terminal 3 (gate E9), but how come nowhere was it mentioned that SPIRIT check in was on Terminal 4 (out of Fort Lauderdale). UPDATE: still waiting on my check in luggage. We reached the gate at 12:36 (midnight) and it’s now 1:33 am. Are we serious here? NEVER WILL I EVER FLY SPIRIT NOR RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. Kayak, I wish there was a way to block results from certain airlines.... in this Case SPIRIT."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Spirit is the below cheep. The seats are bare basic do not lend back even a little. They advertise as the low rate fare, but by the time you add in the carry on luggage fee, I could have used a different carrier. They charge even for water $3.00 for tiny bottle. The planes rattle during take off and landing. I would only fly Spirit again if I had an emergency to get to and had no other choice. I would pay 50.00 for a better plane. They put two more rows of seats in their plane-cramped, cramped"
Pros: "the flight transported me safely to my destination."
Cons: "several ( Mostly 2) male passengers were yelling out to a female passenger sitting several rows in front of him. One made repeated & loud sexually suggestive comments,, including explicit sexual profanities.. It was very disturbing & I was a bit shocked the flight crew did nothing to address this extremely inappropriate behavior.."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Y"
Cons: "Everything else. I couldn't check in online. When I got to the airport, I was told I didn't have a flight. I showed the lady my confirmation email and she kept telling me that I only had one flight (this was my return flight home from Florida), I had to show her the difference between the two flights. Then she tried to tell me that I had cancelled my flight online..... which I hadn't, hence me being there trying to check in. Horrible company. They push their flight attendants to have customers sign up for the Spirit credit card. Just horrible horrible company."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we missed the connection even though we were told that the connecting flight was waiting for us. The only options provided were to wait until Tuesday (it was Sunday) without a Hotel or to receive a reimbursement and find another flight by our own. We had to buy a ticket from another airline. The reimbursement received was not even half of the amount paid or the price for one way ticket to that destination. We received a $50 voucher that expires in 2 months. No one from that flight wants to travel ever again with Spirit. Customer service was awful."
Pros: "Nothing, horrible airline...THIEVES!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay $84 USD for luggage (42 each) one-way and will have to pay the same for the return trip! That's almost the cost of the original ticket. This airline is CROOKED! How in the world do they get away with this. First airline that I've ever been on that charges more for carryons than they do for checked bags, and that charges you got every little thing!!! Unbelievable! Didn't find out about their horrific baggage policy until it was too late, as they did not send out notifications for early check-in just so they can cheat their customers better! Never, ever again!!! I will NEVER fly Spirt again!!!"
Cons: "They charge you for everything! Its a low cost but at the end you pay more than if you travell with a bigger company."
Pros: "I can not find one positive thing to say about my experience and that is astonishing as I travel often across many different airlines and I understand things happen but my issue is with your overall operation"
Cons: "Yeah you offer low fares but what's the point when you charge $60 for me to carry my own bag onto the plane and store it myself ...that is just being greedy . The fact that I arrived checked in and was stopped at security entrance to go back into a ridiculously long line to pay for my carry on luggage is ludicrous-again showing your greed , if someone gets through at least set it up for them to pay at the gate and not have to stand in long lines -time is the most precious of commodities these days. Once in security line customer service was awful , people yelling out all the cant dos rather than assisting people through the line for efficiency. I asked an agent if he could move me in the line as my flight boarded in 30 min and he simply said I can't do that but you can ask someone if they will let you go ahead -ARE YOU KiDDING ME ? Any other airline would show concern and assist accordingly-it's called customer service Once entering the plane , it was dirty and had a fowl odor in the cabin. Could see trash and debris from the prior flight and this was a 7am flight! . Seat did not recline and no entertainment options . Have not had an experience like that in a while and I will for sure steer clear of your airlines in the future. Not trying to be harsh -but you got some work to do"
Cons: "They would not let me check in at 915 for a 955 flight. The airport was not crowded it was a Tuesday night and they would not budge on the fact that I was there 44 mins before not 45 mins. They have a very strict 45 min check in policy. I had to sleep at the airport and then they charged me 100 dollars for changing my flight. It is a scam. I was on line with multiple people who had to pay for their next flight even though there was plenty of time to get to the gate. I will never fly spirit again!"
Cons: "No one did anything to help me in my horrible situation. Evryone kept refering to ither companies and shifting the responsibility."
Pros: "Our pilot and our flight crew"
Cons: "Stuck on runway at OHare for 1 hr 20 min after landing because they had no gate crew, then 15 minutes at the gate waiting for someone to open the door, then 1 hr standing around a continuously running and empty carousel. No representative at carousel, sitting in a nearby office and provided no tangible update or assistance. Never got out of her chair. Another staff member came later and also sat at the desk, did not help, another passenger asked him for a supervisor and he told her to shut up. Seriously??? I can only say that our crew in flight and our pilot were great, our pilot in particular was mortified by the situation, apologized repeatedly and suggested we all file complaints on spirit.com. My friend flying the same night to Dallas on Spirit had her luggage lost. Fly this airline at your own risk--you have been warned."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes were alarmingly old. They were not comfortable and while I'm sure they do safety checks, there was so much flexing, rattling, and groaning that it did not feel safe. On our way out of the country - they did not have pens to fill out the customs forms, and told us that if we made a mistake we were out of luck because they didn't have extras. It should be more clear (before purchase) that the price for any bag (even a carry on) is so high - it raises the price of the ticket $100 which is significant On arrival in US they NEVER told us what carousel our bags were on, it was not posted, even on the carousel... it took us forever to find them"
Pros: "flight was cancelled, next available was delayed due to weather which I understand is not controllable. Was able to book a flight on another airline and was more than halfway home when the Spirit flight took off"
Cons: "Inaccurate information from email alerts stating flight was delayed when it was cancelled. Paying to have an assigned seat is ridiculous! If I buy more than 1 ticket at a time please figure out how to program the seat assigments so everyone sits together. I understand charging a fee for first class, business, class, exit row, ETC. but come on the seats didn't even recline. The personnel were all polite but that doesn't help when the information from them is wrong. I don't care how big a smile you give me or how many times you say I'm sorry."
Pros: "I guess if I were to say anything good about spirit it would be that the boarding went smoothly. I guess? About the same as any other airline."
Cons: "The was my first experience with sprit and will never use this airline again. They say, you get what you pay for. Really? Rude staff included? Both of our flights were overnight flights. People are tired and most of the time are going to try and get comfortable and maybe sleep? No way was that happening with how extremely small this plane was. I am an "average" size 28 year old female and I felt that I couldn't move at all. I can't imagine this flight being comfortable for anyone, of any size. I wasn't going to judge this airline on that alone, but of course, what everyone warns you of, delays. Delays on BOTH flights. So inconvenient for not only us but family members who are planning on picking us up. I will go ahead and remind you that people say, you get what you pay for. We each paid 350, not including the 152 dollars for seat selecting and baggage, and an extra 30 for oversized luggage. Seriously?! That is NOT cheap when compared to delta which allows a FREE carry on, checked bag for 25 bucks, some actual leg room, and a friendly staff. Never again. Super disappointed."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is PATHETIC. I got to Phx airport to catch a flight to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) at 2 am. At 1230 am they told me it was cancelled. I asked why and they said "we don't know." They put me on a flight with another airline at 5 am to FLL for free so I didn't mind so much, mistakes happen. When I went to catch my FLL>PHX 4 days later they said they had no flight for me. When I asked why, after showing my itinerary ($320 round trip), they said I was a no show to my first flight. After explaining what happened they said "oh they accidentally cancelled the wrong flight then because you don't have a FLL>PHX flight but you will be reimbursed half the $320. After buying the next FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR ONE WAY FLIGHT (I'm military and needed to be back the next day) and getting back to PHX finally, I called spirit to ask what their explanation was. They said "you were displayed as a no show and you will not be receiving a refund." I payed $320 to NEVER get on one single spirit airline plane. Find a new airline"
Pros: "My flight into florida not bad except I thought the plane was going to shake apart for the first 1/3 of the ride"
Cons: "Some how they did something wrong when they put my information in the computer for my return flight departing from Ft. Lauderdale. I was not able to check in and print my boarding pass ahead of time. I called the customer service line twice to confirm that my reservation was intact even though I could not print the pass. At the airport there was no "bag drop" so everyone from all Spirit flights had to wait in a line that was 2 blocks long (no lie.) It took 45 mins. to get to the counter. Once there no one could seem to figure out what was wrong and it didn't seem to be a priority for them as they were putting out quite a few other fires. I stood at the counter for another 45 mins. They finally were able to print my boarding pass. Thank god I was TSA approved or I would not have made the flight. That did not seem to bother any of their employees. They won't be seeing me again!"
Pros: "On time smooth bording"
Pros: "Flight attendants on both flights were very nice."
Cons: "Shortcut security was not honored flying to fll. Was unaware of the so calley "bare fare". I paid almost $300 for my flight just to find out the night before that I had to pay an additional $142 for my seats and bags. Water wasn't even free! Flight was late departing but arrived On time. On the way home I got to the airport 2.5hrs early even though I checked in the night before just to be put in a long line because spirit appeared under staffed. The Spirit agent took our long coiled line and put us outside in a straight line...in the cold and rain! While in line, a Spirit passenger was visibly and audibly crying. A few other passengers including myself tried to help her. We informed a near by agent who also saw the crying woman and told us "it's not my job. She's not my concern." The lack of care and customer service was ridiculous. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will encourage friends and family to boycott them as well."
Pros: "Departed on time & arrived early!"
Cons: "Having booked wheelchair service for my flight but I was unable to use it as the lines for baggage check-in & security were extremely long. I would have missed my flight waiting for the wheelchair service. There seemed to be no special line for wheelchair check-in at Ft Lauderdale airport due to the overcrowding. I was never even asked if I needed assistance until deboarded the plane in Chicago. It is a shame that Spirit does not take handy-capped passengers needs seriously at all locations. They did have decent wheelchair service in Chicago. If you do need wheelchair service on Spirit Airlines you will need to arrive 3+ hours prior to your flight when busy to be sure you don't miss your flight! Also, beware of their outrageous luggage charges even for carry-on luggage!"
Cons: "After a slight parking delay at the airport I made it to the Spirit check-in 43 minutes before departure. Spirit representatives had already left the counter leaving me, my family, and several other passengers who arrived just after me with no ability to get boarding passes. We proceeded to the security area where we could see the Spirit reps who could have easily checked us in at that point. We spoke out to them asking for help but they simply looked down and ignored us. They told the TSA agents they would not come out till after the flight departed. Imagine how frustrating that was to hear. No other airline behaves like this. Later, my request for cancellation and refund was rejected because I missed the 45 minute window. I am out $544. I managed to get a flight with Delta that morning and was treated like royalty by comparison. The Delta flight was almost the same price to boot. Never again Spirit! Not worth saving a few pennies to be treated like that."
Pros: "There was nothing about this experience that was handled well or in any way comfortable."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by more than 4 hours. Had I been notified of this, I wouldn't have had to get up at 3:30 AM to get to the airport in time. I signed up for the email notifications and am a Free Spirit member- none came. Second of all, the airport was in complete chaos. In fairness, there had been a shooting in terminal 2 the day before, but there was no organization, no one to ask about which line to stand in, etc.. A couple of employees with megaphones would have gone a long way. Third of all, the gate agent boarding the plane was the definition of rudeness and snarkiness. Fourth of all, while boarding the plane, and elderly man became unresponsive and had to be wheeled off the plane. Again, total chaos, no announcements. The man fell out of the wheelchair and expired on the jet bridge- ok, beyond Spirit's control, but the way the gate agent and flight attendants handled this was disgraceful. Fifth of all, we all had to disembark, then line up to board again, then they cancelled out flight. 6th- we were instructed to exit the terminal and rebook at the front desk. People ran like the starting gun had shot at the olympics. When I exited the terminal, we were met with a wall of people- total chaos- no one directing traffic- agents yelling at us- we were finally directed to line up outside in the hot sun (wearing black winter clothes) and proceeded to wait for over 4 hours. I didn't even get close to the desk- I booked a return flight on American for $430 out of Miami because people who were able to reach Spirit via phone (I was on hold for over 2 hours before my phone died) were saying they couldn't get us back to NYC until next week. I have tried unsuccessfully to reach Spirit to refund the money for my carry on bag."
Pros: "Price was very reasonable. Seats were reasonably comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "We arrived on what was apparently a very busy travel day for a 7:20 flight over an hour before the flight. Once we arrive at the terminal there was a line outside the terminal including hundreds of passengers for various flights covering the entire sidewalk outside the terminal (FLL). Thankfully we were pulled out of this line due to our flight leaving within about an hour to a shorter line to check in our bag (which still moved incredibly slowly). Once we were all checked in including our bag we lined up at security. There a woman asked for anyone going to our destination at which time she we acknowledged us looked at line ahead and turned away never too acknowledge us again. We went through the security line and were on our way to the gate within the time limit. Then we walked through the terminal to our gate which was apparently at the further possible gate from our assigned terminal (with my elderly parents who weren't able to walk at a quick pace). During our long walk to fare there wasn't even one announcement about our flight completing boarding or announcing that this would happen soon. Once we arrived at the gate another woman told us the doors were closed and no additional passengers were to be allowed in. We understood that despite the ridiculous security line and distance to the gate that we did not arrive on time and were turned away. This is where I felt that the gate associate acted unprofessionaly and allowed 2 other passengers to board even after turning us away. I asked why, despite the doors still being opened for these other passengers, that we were turned away? The woman said she couldn't help us and that we would be allowed into the next flight. We returned to the terminal for rebooking and waited almost 2 hours on line to get on the next flight. At this point we were told that all flights were booked until at least 24 hours later. Then we switched our flights to an airport about an hour away (PBI) to land at an airport two hours from our original destination (ACY instead of LGA). I'm the end we spent the entire day traveling. I would understand that we weren't at the gate by the designated time (due to the ridiculous check-in line and security line) but the part that infuriated me was that 2 passengers were allowed onto the plane after we were turned away. I felt that because I didn't yell or whine, my family weren't allowed to board the flight and the two passengers who did argue, were allowed to board is a poor business practice and disrespectful. This was compounded by the poor attitude of the gate agents and the fact that there were no announcements made about our flight."
Cons: "I expect when I am quoted a flight price that the price includes a seat. When I went to check in for my Spirit flight I discover that any seat has an additional charge. I call that false advertising. Worse of all is the Spirit check in process. I paid for my luggage and seat ( see above) in advance and printed out my boarding pass before I went to the airport. The check in procedure was a horror. Each of the two flights I still had to wait 40+ minutes to hand in my luggage. No check in machines. Just understaffed check in counters. Compare that Spirit check in experience with my last Southwest flight where I used a machine to print out my boarding pass and which also printed out my luggage tags and I just handed my luggage to an attendant.. Total Southwest check in time 5 minutes. Every one on line with me at Spirit was basically saying first time on Spirit and the last. Really the savings with Spirit in not that great when you add in the seat cost and the very high baggage charges. Not worth hassle for the small savings and resent the false price advertising"
Pros: "The flight crew was very good. They made constant announcements as to the status of the flight and anticipated turbulence. The flight attendants were also good"
Cons: "Where to begin. You arrive at the airport to endless lines. There were three lines to check in and we learned eventually that one line was for Cuban flights. One for us and one for something else. However, the staff was rude and there was no signage indicating which was which. Then the baggage claim lady charged me $59 extra for my bag but then said that if I had had my friends check the bag I wouldn't have had to pay the fee. Of course then it was too late. Then the flight was delayed because the bad overbooked it. Finally at Boston our bags took forever to arrive and when they did the were soaking wet. I understand that Spirit is meant to be the economical carrier but that is no excuse for rude and incompetent staff. I heard SOO many people say they would never fly Spirit again. Get it together Spirit!"
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "Every time I fly Spirit Airlines, I swear I'll never do it again. Then I see the low fares and I say "okay, just one more time." This experience was another leg in that cycle. A low fare, a "one more time," and a fierce "oh hell no--never again." When I arrived at the airport, the ticket counter looked like a flea market. It was absolutely mobbed. My flight was departing in about an hour, and one woman in line had already been waiting for 2.5 hours. Since Spirit Airlines does not participate in the mobile boarding pass process (FOR SOME INANE GODFORSAKEN BULLSHIT REASON), I still had to check in and get my boarding pass. And since two other Spirit flights had recently been cancelled, the ticket counter line was a trainwreck. An utter mass of dispirited humanity, waiting, ironically enough, at a counter called "Spirit." I managed to maneuver my way through, and with several strokes of luck and a possible intervention from God, I left the sad zoo of passengers behind me and made it through security, to the gate, and into the boarding line, with my idiotic paper boarding pass. As you might imagine, I was somewhat rushed and a touch flustered, though grateful to be en route to my destination. I was thirsty though, a combination of the morning's odyssey, the recycled cabin air, and this human need to hydrate that we share with literally every living thing on the planet. So I waited patiently for the pilot to extinguish the "seatbelt" sign, walked up to the flight attendants and politely asked for a glass of water. "That will be $3.00," she said. I paused for a moment. Surely there must be a mistake. I wanted water. Not coffee or tea or lemonade or a cocktail. Just a glass of water. This is how I came to realize that access to something that is a biological necessity for survival--that I would be granted gratis almost anywhere else--costs, on Spirit Airlines. Only those with access to a functioning credit card will be served water. Now I understand that keeping costs down is the only way this poor excuse for an airline stays in business. Every one of its passengers is there as a personal compromise, dodging hidden fees for "legroom" and seat selection and peanuts at every turn to get to their location without selling their souls to the corporate demons who've re-vamped the age-old "bait and switch" and call it a bargain. But if Spirit persists in being a seething mess of a nightmare of a preposterous front of a business, and if their customers continue to play along and manage to navigate the utter catastrophe of a process it can become to reach a destination via Spirit Airlines, one might believe that once they sit down in their unassigned (unless you're willing to pay an additional $14 each way) se"
Pros: "If you don't mind minimal leg room, seats that don't recline and high prices for low grade food, the crew was courteous, the plane was clean and we had a smooth flight that arrived on time! Hiccup We paid for our bags online the night before but the Kiosk said still owed the money. Very frustrating now having to now wait in the ticket line, and with holiday TSA long lines, we were the last ones to board the plane as the gate closed. That needs to be fixed. It we didn't make it you would have gotten a scathing review. $45 per carry-on is real steep though. However, all is well!"
Cons: "This company is so cheap, they charge you $45 for a carry-on bag, and they don't even have reclining seats on their planes. Even worse, there are no monitors next to the gates to tell you WHERE THE FLIGHT IS GOING. Because of this, when they change a plane's gate, they don't have anywhere to tell people. So they tell you when you go up to get on your plane, which is already 30 minutes late, and it's too late to catch your flight. Then you get to spend 3 hours waiting in lines to talk to Spirit employees who are just annoyed, stubborn, and won't give you a refund. Absolutely terrible experience. Seriously, pick any other airline than these guys."
Cons: "I thought I got a bargain on the flight to Cancun, but this flight ended up costing me nearly double when they charged me $80 for a checked bag that weighed 51 lbs. Every other airline is 50lbs and they are only 40. Then the flight attendants let the back of the plane passengers use all the front luggage bins and I had to fight backwards while deplaning to try and get my carry on. After my layover they straight up took my bag and I was forced to check it at the gate. Seems like a bargain until they nickel and dime you for anything they can."
Pros: "Board flight. Fly to destination. I love the no frills, low luggage, easy on and easy off of this airline. My biggest feeling of stress on flights is the drink service. The cart is always blocking the bathroom, you are thinking of what free beverage you want the entire first hour, you spill some of it, then you have trash for the second hour of the flight. It's literally the worst part of flying other than the endless fear of death and facing your mortality with every hint of turbulence. This airline and others like it are amazing. No stress of awkwardly bothering your aisle mates with getting in and out when they just got a comp. cola. and you feel like you have to wait until they're done before you can go to the bathroom. Half the anxiety of flying is alleviated for me personally. Love this airline."
Cons: "I Didn't like the fact that their online checkin program was a complete disaster. I spent near 2 hours trying to check in and get my boarding pass. During this time I also made three telephone call to their help line which generated no help. I was surprised and disappointed by how little weight wise the checked in baggage was and horrified by the cots of carry one. While the upfront cost of the flight looked good..by the time I had paid for baggage and carry one I would have been better off with another airline My advise to all 'NEVER FLY SPIRIT AIRLINES'"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
Cons: "Needs adjustable seats, small snack with a drink for couple of dollars more"
Pros: "I got home and pretty much on time. The staff on the plane were friendly."
Cons: "Check in on mobile was really difficult. Was forced to sign up for their mailing list. Then got into a loop and had to start over. Baggage fees are exorbitant so I signed up for their discount offer which cost $50 and was supposed to give me a discount on my bags. Discount didn't happen and I had to pay full price anyway. Their weight allowance is 10 pounds less than other airlines so I had to transfer a bunch of stuff to my carry-on. Sneaky fees and nickel and diming are such shoddy business practices. I Will not fly Spirit again if I can at all avoid it. Short-term gain results in long-term loss for Spirit given I am a very frequent traveler."
Cons: "Spirit airlines would not issue a refund for my cancelled trip to Miami despite the high Zika risk, attendant CDC travel warning, and the fact that I notified them of my pregnancy. They purported to issue me a $120 "voucher" (to expire in 60 days) though I initially paid around $400 for the tickets. The website failed to display the voucher number, and my requests to their customer service center to please provide it were ignored. It's hard to imagine how I'd even be able to use it as there is no voucher redemption option on their site. I will never book another flight with this airline."
Cons: "Again, same as first flight. I haven't flown with Spirit in a long time. I forgot the reason I don't is because ticket prices may be low but you pay for literally everything which makes the prices pretty much equal to Delta or any other better airline. It was only comfortable because I paid so much extra for seats. If I buy a ticket, seat number should be included. Kinda common sense on that one. What food? I had to pay for it if I wanted a meal. A flight this long should have included a meal. I had the extra task of making sure I already had a meal with me upon boarding. Ummm......there was no entertainment either."
Pros: "I didn't like anything in this flight. First at the gate 8:55pm, 33 minutes late we boarded. After wait about an hour inside the aircraft we finally start to taxi, almost in the runway the pikot said we had a problem and had to come back to the bridge. Everybody out of the plane, more wait and wait... nobody to help or answer us. 3 hours after that we got inside the plane again. I ask for a glass of water and the fkight attendant said $3. I told him I did not accept the charge and we had a delay without any explanation and 3 hours of delay and I felt assaulted by his charge. I just want a water. I think it should be the minimum they shoud do. Because of it and many other complains I heard from others I WILL NEVER MORE FLY SPIRIT. I also will tell everybody what a awful experience I had."
Cons: "Spirit should be investigated by FAA and regulatory agencies. They also lied in the website saying that flight was on time and showed wrong also on the TVs that shows departures on the airport."
