I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job.
We were nickled and dimed for bags. They also are trying to get you to pay to reserve seats out of fear you won't be able to sit with your friends (we did not pay and were able to sit together). Check-in was a nightmare; the Spirit staff was altogether unhelpful and it was evident from announcements they were so running so far behind people were at risk of missing flights. We only had to check bags and it was not clearly marked or indicated where the bag drop was located. The flight was listed as on time throughout the night however we left 1.5 hours after our scheduled departure time; Spirit never made any announcement about the delay and the board at the gate continued to read "on time".
Once on board though, the flight was uneventful, comfortable, and satisfactory.
Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
Once I got to my 5 hour layover destination the gate was changed 3 times. Again, they charge for your first checked bag on an international flight as well as your carry on in addition to any tap water or drinks you would like on the flight. For an international flight these policies are unheard of. You're better off paying the $50 more and fly another airline because spirit is going to take that from you and then some!
Jetblue performs at its usual high level. Friendly staff, welcome from Pilot, and standard package of beverages.
The E190 on this route is showing its age (as are many of Blue's E190s). Lack of power, tiny video screen, marginal resolution point to the need for an overhaul of this jet. They are apparently in progress of updating the E190 fleet. Much prefer Blue's A320's which in my opinion is a great ride.
At check in, while checking my bag, the agent advised that since the flight wasn't full, and I wound have to claim my bag to transfer to an international flight, I could save some time by taking my bag on board. That worked out very well. I am very thankful for the good advice.
