Pros: "We got to our destination on time, and fare was fair!"

This has happened 3 out of the last 4 flights we booked with JetBlue. Thankfully, they didn't switch the equipment and our flight departed with a minor delay. We've learned not to fly JetBlue if we have a connection or really need to be somewhere at the time advertised."

Cons: "Unprofessional crew, plane that seemed to have technical problems, entertainment system that was nonoperational, seatbelt sign on entire flight, strange fumes that several passengers complained about."
Pros: "The Popcorners were fresh."
Cons: "Once again, Jet Blue did not let us check-in online because we had purchased tickets through a travel site. And although the partner with Azul, they claimed that they could not check us through to our final destination. Coming home, Azul did this for us without issue. Gates E-9 and E-10 at Fort Lauderdale are a disaster waiting to happen. There is inadequate separation between the two gates to allow efficient boarding. When the flight out of E-9 got delayed, they ended up boarding two flight at the same time. Boarding announcements dd not specify flights and it became a huge snafu. The crew did not try to change it - they plowed ahead ignoring the confusion they were causing. On board, the movies did not run smoothly - one was restarted three times. I have tried to book on Jet Blue firt in the past. My last three experiences are making me rethink this."
Pros: "New plane, legroom, snacks. Really nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Delayed 50 minutes!"
Pros: "Landing home"
Cons: "9 hour delay in terminal. Not enough seats for everyone."
Cons: "JetBlue cancelled my flight and charged me for the luggage. I wrote them and asked for a refund. Still have not heard back. Person who booked flight guaranteed they would not charge me for a flight that they cancelled."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet and thoughtful."
Cons: "Could've had us out the next morning on latam but they kept us there another nite. We missed half of our hunt in Argentina. Worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "Horrible!! Significant delays. Missed my connector due to delay then was delayed again when leaving Florida. Horrible experience and will probably never fly Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Comfort was very good. The level of communication when things changed was very good. Good crew."
Cons: "It was obvious that they would not accommodate all carry on bags, this could have been announced earlier and allow for mutual benefit to both parties. JETBLUE cards benefits are only allowed to American residents as if they are the only one who supports them in travel"
Pros: "The seats. The Wi-FI. The price of ticket."
Cons: "The delays. No notice. Boarding delayed by 45 minutes. 20 more in bay after doors shut. "We are in 20th position for take-off. Another hour. Arr over 2 hrs. Late. Attendents disappeared for a few hours. Sad."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "I liked everything !"
Pros: "Not much. They did put me in a nice hotel for 2 nights when their late arrival caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Food was a bag of chips Flight was over 2 hours late causing me to miss connecting flight to destination. Jet Blue claimed they could not put me on the next flight because it was full and was on another airline. They put me in a hotel for the remainder of the night , all the next day and the following night. I had paid for a 4 day vacation at a resort in Argentina so my 4 day stay became a 2 day stay because Jet Blue would not purchase a seat from a booked passenger on the next flight as I requested. I will never use this airline again and would strongly advise anyone who wants or needs to be at their destination on time avoid them."
Pros: "I love the movie options and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "One crew member was not so friendly. She had a very serious, almost angry, look on her face that made me hesitant to ask her for water. Even when I did ask for water, she seemed annoyed so I never bothered to ask for a cup of ice. I dont expect service with a smile all the time but she appeared miserable. Maybe that's just her face but I'm used to a more pleasant crew at Jet Blue. However, the lady that greeted us on the plane was nice throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."
Pros: "Crew worked hard to help us feel good"
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "Security check was too slow."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, easy boarding."
Cons: "Food service seemed to take a while to get started"
Cons: "People at check-in at Jetblue did not show any interest at all in helping clarify why you did not provide me with three boarding passes I needed to reach my final destination. Unfriendly, poor service and poor communication."

Cons: "It was great"

Cons: "No satellite TV en-route."
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed flight, not too bad. But the screaming children and too tired parents to do anything was frustrating. The seats where uncomfortable and dirty, the screen to watch movies was hard to see. Wifi barely worked and was super slow."
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was smooth, and the experience was awesome"
Cons: "Our crew was delayed in Philadelphia hours before our flight yet we wer not notified until 20 minutes before our boarding that we would now have a 2.5 hour delay"
Pros: "On time to Bogotá and quite comfortable."
Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding on time"
Cons: "Space is very limited."
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."
Pros: "Aircraft looks brand new and it had ton of entertainment videos, games, tv etc."

Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."

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.

Why did they put someone one the flight that was clearly sick before he ever boarded then you make everyone miss their connection in Dallas. We got to the gate for our connecting flight 9 minutes before the pushed back from the ramp and they would not let us on??? WTF poor customer service!! Fly southwest from now on!"

Cons: "No food options."
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!!"

Cons: "My first flight was delayed so I had to run 10mins non stop to my connecting flight to HNL. When I get to my flight they changed my seat to a middle seat. I don’t book a flight unless I have a window seat, so I asked them to change it back to a window seat. They were unable to but offered me a flight the next day, which is unacceptable. Then I arrive to my destination and I have no luggage. I was able to make my connecting flight but somehow my luggage was not. When I inquired about my lost luggage I was told to check baggage claim later tonight. No clear answer on how to get my luggage."
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."
Cons: "I called United within 24 hours after booking and was told my flight could not be changed, but I was able to cancel for a refund.

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."

Pros: "Right on time. Smiling faces. Comfortable seat (Premium economy)"
Pros: "Asked why is there no leg room to even move your legs or drink a glass of water without hitting the person next to you . Response you can upgrade for 50$ be semi cramped. I'm not a big guy 511 180 this was the worst I have ever flown . If you where lucky to fall asleep the attendants would hit you with cart. Not once not twice but 4 times ."
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: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "On Friday I was unable to fly to Fort Lauderdale Florida due to airport close due to hurricane. United Airlines refused to refund my money even them knowing there was no way I was able to use the ticket because I never made it to Florida. Airline companies are bunch of thiefs."

Pros: "On time flights ."
Cons: "My seat was randomly switched from my first selection and I got a horrible seat and was unable to regain my original seat selection. Very uncomfortable seating. The staff was nice, but not overly friendly."

Pros: "San Diego to San Fran, San Fran to Fort Laudrrdale great! Flying back thru Houston and San Diego not as good"

Pros: "I liked the fact that United Airlines crew members at the gate and on the plane waited for all the passengers who were stuck at TSA because of the airport's issue with staffing. They were extremely accommodating and didn't seem bothered at either the gate or when I boarded."
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight but seemed like the 2 attendants were stressed with trying to have enough time for drinks. Maybe add a 3rd person. Also snacks should still be part of the flight even if it's less than a hour. We are getting a drink...why not add something like nuts"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Service and price"
Pros: "The flight was on time, both of them"
Cons: "There was a delayed flight due to the crew not being at the airport when it was time to take off. The delayed flight from FLL to IAH caused me to miss my connection and then lost a day of travel because the following flights going out to LAX that evening were overbooked. I was very disappointed with United. They should know ahead of time if the crew is not going to make the flight and cause a huge delay for everyone traveling."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks, only drinks and the seats were too small for leg room."
Pros: "Nonstop direct flight. Appropriate spacing / distancing from other passengers."
Cons: "Departure was late. Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "The cheap cost of the flight."

Pros: "My landing was great"
Cons: "No one announces the boarding of the flight."
Pros: "Crew very attentive with smiles. I don’t care for the tight seating with no entertainment offer. No plane should not be without WiFi. One complimentary drink should be included."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Affordable flight"
Pros: "Your service and price. For short and quick trips good service."
Cons: "Additional charges for everything else including the air we breathed (kidding). Additional charge for luggage too pricey."

Pros: "The price was good compared to other options."
Cons: "NO SPACE!!! My knees touched chair in front of me and I'm only 5'11". Chairs don't recline. Jammed in like a sardine in a can. Most uncomfortable cross country flight I've ever had."
Pros: "Nothing at all, was very upset, traveling on emerg to a family member"
Cons: "Paying for carryon m my funds was very minimum, going to cate for a sick family member"
Cons: "Previous flight delayed, caused extreme stress to get to this flight! Got through customs and border protection, very long process and our bags were not at the baggage claim yet! Had to wait over 30 minutes for our bags. If Spirit charges for every bag, they should provide better baggage service! Had to wait in another long line to show our passports. Then run to recheck our bags. Spirit offered no assistants at all to speed this process up. As we are trying to check our bag they are starting to load the plane and we have to go through TSA yet! again another long process. We made it to our flight just in time. But I was completely sweated and stressed out! These flights originally had a three and a half hour layover scheduled between flights."
Cons: "Who charges for even carry-on baggage???? No real food on the menu, you can't get anything but snacks no matter what you pay. Seats are uncomfortable etc. I didn't really enjoy it at all..."
Pros: "Every time I fly with Spirit they seem to single me out and try to make me pay $100.00 dollars for a Cary on witch here's a perfect example my husband flys with Spirit all the time and I decided to take his personal bag for my flight to Chigago so no one will aggravate me but guess what they still did I can't win with Spirit I don't know why they do that to me maybe I just look to good to be in their airline or to rich I can't explain it but it's sad that they should have better managers to handle Thair passengers better my biggest complaint would be when u flew out of Atlantuc city with my husband and son headed to Dallas and was stopped at the entrance of the gate boarding the plane the manager in charge asked me to pay $100.00 dollars for the carry on I explained that there were 5 things in the personal item but he still continued to argue with me my husband and son boarded the flight with bigger bags thAn I had but I didn't want to couse trouble for anyone else on that flight si I decided to ask a vendor near by if he had a plastic bag that I can have to put my pijamas and a change of clothing that I had so that's what I did and left my carry on witch meant so much to me be couse my grandmother had gave it to me when I was young so I really tried to complain to spirit back in October 15th 2015 but it was impossible to get to someone who listens anyway I can't stand spirit after that but I still fly with them not couse they are good or nice they suck but they are with in my budget when I need to fly so don't expect anything for nothing from Spirit I don't ! Ps I'm sure if someone of authority sees this revew can look through your computers and see that what I said was all true and I'm sure they have camaras at the Airport that you can review and see what I said was true ."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "I eventually got there."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the attendants were rude and nothing was done to compensate my time"
Pros: "This was a better-run and smoother operation than the flight from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "$55 for my bag to come with me."
Pros: "Cheap ticket price"
Cons: "No TVs on a 5.5 hour flight to LA, no wifi, seats do not recline, and you have to pay $55 for a carry on"
Cons: "Had to cancel it."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Great employees, plenty of leg room!"
Cons: "Surprised by all of the hidden fees. I would rather know up front what I'm paying."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Gate person helpful. Boarding smooth. Male passengers extremely helpful!"
Cons: "Refusal to help me with small carry on and overhead. I am tiny and older! Seats hard and do no recline. No help going down outside stairs with carry on."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "Sitting for over 5 hours"
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Gate crew were oblivious and unhelpful. Plane was delayed for late flight attendant & bad pilot headset. Most amateur operation I've seen in airline industry."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "The price and the crew."
Cons: "Seats are extra small for width and leg room. Tray table measures only 10 inches by 5 inches...if that. I was freezing the whole time with hands on and vents closed. It might of been cheaper to check my bag then have it as a carry on."
Pros: "Price was competitive."
Cons: "very cramped seating."
Pros: "I like that it was a direct flight from BWI to Fort Lauderdale. We landed early. The seats were somewhat comfortable. The plane was not packed."
Cons: "I had to pay an additional $90 for my luggage. I was under the impression that I was getting my ticket for a good deal until I realized I had to pay for my luggage separately. They charged for drinks and snacks on the plane. A man next to me said he paid extra for more leg room but his seat was the exact same as mine."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I paid lots of extra fees for my luggage, and we waited for over an hour and a half for the luggage to come through baggage claim. No one ever announced that there was a problem to let folks know. May folks missed their ground transportation connections. When I tried to find out what the hold up was, I couldn't get through to anyone."
Pros: "The aircrew, flight attendants and pilots, were very good. The aircraft are new."
Cons: "Customer service at the gate was horrible. The baggage policy is different than any airline I've ever flown... Which is fine if you understand it. But since this was my first flight with spirit, I wanted to make sure. After many threatening announcements of a $100 charge if your ONE allowable item is too big, I went to counter to see if my backpack was of appropriate size, When I approached the podium to verify I was ok, the two gate agents were talking so I stood and waited to be helped. After several minutes, one finally looked over, with a very annoyed expression and asked, " Do you need something?" (Actual quote) I asked my question, which was answered with equal distain and then I was dismissed and the agent returned to her conversation. Throughout the entire trip, it felt as if the ground crew were there to herd you on and off the aircraft... That's it... They were completely unapproachable. My recommendation? Spend the few dollars more and go with another carrier... If you do choose to fly Spirit, set your expectations very low and then you'll only be slightly disappointed."
Cons: "Very small room, tight seats and flight delay ."
Pros: "Everything from the economy parking to boarding was fast. The airport isn't overly full and security check was fast."
Cons: "It never happened - see above."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 50 minutes before even boarding and was packed no elbow room. After deplaning had to walk several miles just to get to the terminal, no train running at Atlanta. Totally ridiculous."
Pros: "The cost is reasonable, the crew was friendly and funny."
Cons: "Boarding was extremely slow, people were rowdy and obnoxious. A passenger was escorted off the plane by 3 cops, which took forever. The seats are cramped and don't recline. The cost for extras is ridiculous, really, $100.00 at the gate for carry-ons????"
Pros: "What I supposedly saved in ticket prices was made up in baggage fees. I had to pay $ 55 for a carry on bag??? $2 for a cup of coffee on the plans. I will Seriosly THINK before booking a Spirit flight in the future!!!"
Cons: "Only use spirt if you have no bags and no money...that's what I was left with..."
Pros: "The other airline which actually managed to successfully get me home."
Cons: "Spirit bumped me from my flight despite the fact that I showed up over an hour before the departure. They were not only unhelpful and unapologetic, but actually quite hostile as they informed me that they would be offering no compensation or voucher, and would not place me on another flight for 2 days (although they were still advertising flights for the next day on their website)."
Pros: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering incessantly about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, about fifteen reminders inflight about airline policies that I understood the first fourteen times, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "All the hidden fees, rear of cabin flight crew needs a new job, very rude and treated everyone like dirt! No booze on flight Really?!? been flying for 35 years this was a first, will never fly you again unless your new CEO does a reverse from your last one"
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Pros: "Kept me updated through emails about my flight changes."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no explanation on why we were delayed ! Never flying again .."
Pros: "The crew and the initial cost."
Cons: "You pay extra for everything. I was surprised they didn't have a coin operated soap dispenser in the lavatory. Retrieving your luggage at both airports was very time consuming. Checking in at Ft. Lauderdale was a joke."
Pros: "Food options were good. The pilot was good about keeping everyone informed."
Cons: "We boarded the plane on time then sat on the runway for over 2 hours. Someone was kicked off the plane and then we found out we couldn't fly over part of the normal route. This seemed to be out of the airlines control but it took a very long time to get water and it's too bad you can't serve drinks on the ground. Very uncomfortable seats and there are no screens so you can watch movies or play games."
Pros: "Me gustaría que le pagaran mejor a los pilotos para que acepten pilotear sus aviones y no dejen arrollados a los pasajeros como me pasó a mi!!"
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination in on piece"
Cons: "2 hour delay, incredibly bumpy flight, had to pay for even water"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled but our bags were still sent to Baltimore. The next Spirit flight to Baltimore wasn't until two days later so we had to find another company. When we arrived in Baltimore, we went to the Spirit baggage office and they were closed for the night so we couldn't get our bags"
