Cons: "Absolutely perfect from departure to arrival. Our first time flying jet blue and it was incredible"
Pros: "Unlimited snacks, comfortable roomy seats, refreshing looking cabin, family boarding"
Cons: "On time flight"
Cons: "I forgot my earbuds and there were no complimentary headsets available"
Pros: "Love the live TV, unlimited drinks and snacks and ultra courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "That we were delayed by 90 mins."
Pros: "Did not board that flight... I received emails throughout the day of departure time changes and the last email indicated that they had changed the departure time 33 minutes earlier. I was already en route for the flight when I received the email . When I got there they refused to let us boar stating that we were late!!! The attendants were very rude and not at all helpful! Instead they booked a flight for me the next day at a very early time! I lost out time and money! I had booked a hotel. I will never book any flights with Jet Blue ever again."
Pros: "Flight attendant was exceptional!!!"
Pros: "Courteous and friendly crew from the time I walked into the terminal . I dont travel much but they made me feel right at home and made sure everything was taken care of and took the time to make sure I got where I needed to be problem free."
Cons: "Poor selection was offered. I know they were on a short flight so it really didn’t matter and it’s not their fault that they can only serve what they are given. The crew was exceptional in every other way."
Pros: "It wasn’t terrible. It was average."
Cons: "My television was broken. The seats were smaller than I imagined seeing that it was “even more space”. You would think that the seats would be just a little bigger especially to accommodate someone with some extra package (weight)."
Pros: "Lost my luggage and were not helpful and if was my sisters wedding"
Pros: "I know the pilot did the best he could but the landing in Newark was the worst I ever went through. About 20 people vomited, including myself. The crew was very thoughtful and picked up the bags before landing."
Pros: "Flight was steady, entertainment was great, and it was comfortable."
Pros: "Weather and atmosphere in Orlando!"
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Cons: "I had a great flight! No complaints! I didn’t use I flight entertainment, so I can’t recommend either way. The food was good, but I did purchase it. Hence the 4 stars."
Cons: "Jet Blue didn’t transfer my baggage to the company which I would fly with after, and if the office didn’t call me I would have my luggage lost. Not to mention that I had to stay caring it around the airport for 13 hours, until the time of my next flight."
Pros: "So I couldn’t get a full boarding pass.. and had to go to the American Airlines to get my continue ticket.. that is not the right way to do it .. other then that every thing was good."
Cons: "Read the above"
Pros: "Great trip on time would book on jet blue again"
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Excellent service throughout."
Pros: "Nice plane. Could have used a plug."
Cons: "The food was ok. But worse than the food I had on the way to the us. I didn't get all of my boarding passes in NYC so I had to go get them in Orlando which ment changing airport terminal to get to the LAtam desk and back doing 1 hour and a half of TSA security check..."
Pros: "It was a quite comfortable flight on the way back to Orlando."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like"
Cons: "Kennedy very confusing. Over 2 hours to get through to flight but had a little to much time between flights (was ready to board by 5 pm but boarding was 7:30pm)."
Pros: "Flight arrived 30mins early!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which was going to make me late for my next two connecting flights. They sent me on an airline that had me show up at my destination 36 hours later. Wasted money on my hotel room and activities I had paid for for the first day. Even though I had spoken extensively to the lady helping me about my luggage, it took my bag 5 days to get to me. So instead of enjoying my vacation I was having to spend time in the mall in a foreign country trying to find clothes for each occasion. It also cost a lot of money to repurchase all of these items. I will never support this airline again."
Pros: "Always love flying JetBlue. Left early, and was able to get home a little early which was much needed after 34 hours of traveling. Seat back entertainment is always good, high quality touch screens. Love having wifi access."
Pros: "Left 10 minutes early and arrived 30 minutes early"
Pros: "Having never flown JetBlue before I was pleasantly surprised by how great everything was. The seats were comfortable, WiFi on the plane, staff was friendly. I'll definitely try to take JetBlue again, when possible, in the future."
Pros: "Incredible flexibility to move us to a different plane and get us on our way quickly"
Pros: "Loved the snacks, the space in economy was adequate and the crew was friendly"

Pros: "Nice Crew"
Cons: "Ran a little late (30 minutes)"
Cons: "It was the worst day in my life. Delay and almost canceled"
Pros: "The crew promised 100$ credit per ticket and never kept the promise. Flight was scheduled to leave ny at 130pm , and left at 630pm , with 2 small kids waiting at the airport was a horrible experience. I understand that delays happen. But not keeping us informed & fake promises of $100 credit per ticket was just wrong."
Cons: "I would like jet blue to issue me $300 credit as promised & announced in flight by the crew."
Cons: "had major delays ... Aircraft waited about an hour to take off."
Pros: "The flight was about 1/3 full, so it was very quick to board and very quiet. The limited free in-air WiFi was a nice bonus."
Cons: "Started boarding very late with no information provided. Then boarding seemed to take forever. The plane took off almost 40 min late and there seemed to be no obvious circumstances to cause this. And then my in flight entertainment screen was not working."
Cons: "Airport problems, JFK is the worst airport I ever transfer at. Lack of signage for transfer passengers, it made me so confused for not knowing where should I go for my connecting flight. Long walk in between terminals even taking AirTrain. JetBlue problems, ground staff are not helpful at all. No separate line for transferring guest, long line for everything. Got separate seats at check in counter, but realized the flight is not full and my husband and I both had nobody sit next to us, really don't know why they assigned separate seats for us."
Pros: "The flight was quiet and boring like most flights."
Cons: "Free entertainment should be offered, but it wasn't horrible."
Pros: "I had weight problems in my bagagens.nao was informed of the maximum amount of weight"
Cons: "I had weight problems in my bagagens.nao was informed of the maximum amount of weight"
Pros: "timeliness of departure and arrival"
Cons: "earphone jack was static make it unpleasureable to watch the TV. Also couldn't connect to internet"
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "Great flight experience thank you United."
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "-Complimentary Snack and beverage -Can pick your seats when booking -Changing Tables in restrooms -Entertainment options -Early boarding for families with small children"
Cons: "-Free Soda but charged for water -Had confirmed seats but then our party with 2 toddlers got split up -Semi convenient( rather small could hardly fit a 1 year old) changing table but then flight attendants threw a fit when a stinky diaper was changed in there. -Had to have special programs on device to even play anything, thought I had everything on for return flight to watch movies but nope still needed something extra Wifi only works for United App and Website -Waiting in the shorter line to preboard with our 2 toddlers only to be cut off by a Global Travel Program(?) family with 15+ people"
Pros: "Seat to myself"
Cons: "Lil bumpy but there were a lot of clouds"
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."
Cons: "Departure was changed twice until I would miss my connecting flight. I was sent to another airlines with not much help. Stayed in the airport an additional five hours."
Cons: "Flight was late Unacceptable"
Cons: "We flew united on our way to forida and we had a layover our first flight got delayed so we missed our second flight. Then on our way back they tried doing the same thing. The lady at the counter thank god ran down to delta and got us a flight to atlanta then to st louis. I think united just doesnt want to pay for a hotel room when they are the ones that kept delaying it. It was a nightmare and i dont plan on flying united again."
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Just the boarding was ok"
Cons: "This was a horrible experience I hope I never use this airline again."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Got a row all to myself."
Cons: "Hard to complain about anything on this flight. Good job United!"
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
Cons: "The seat padding on the headrest... Very uncomfortable for those who have neck problems."
Pros: "The flight was short(ish)."
Cons: "The price of flight not in line with service, comfort, anything. Full flight, small seat, some flight attendants in crabby mood, luggage hassle in Houston, didn't get it first, thought they didn't have it. Had to go to United customer service. Ended up being somekind of "jam". Took forever to get luggage. And it cost me 25 bucks extra. Shameful. Poor experience."
Pros: "Boarding on time and easy Seats super comfy Tv was great"
Cons: "Staff not attentive or friendly Not many food options"
Pros: "Updates were poor as to wether or not I would make my connecting flight. When I asked if there were back up options and was told there were not any. After an hour delay I was called up and given a flight number that could be an option."
Cons: "The delays that I experienced were incredibly long. The major problem with this was the lack of comunication that I received from the airline. I could not figure out how to turn off the tv."
Pros: "Good, courteous service -- on-time performance"
Cons: "Heating and cooling systems were not working well, and my outlet had no power during the flight."
Cons: "Husband and I sat in separate rows and both of us were squeezed in the middle. The window seat next to me was empty but one lady asked if another guy to move there so her and son could sit next to each other's."
Cons: "Lack of care, accurate information and professionalism. No options offered and no concerned for our time and no ownership of the issue. Quick to blame the weather and guarantee fare collection. Another airline on my list of "never again" like Spirit."
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "Great flight, and great entertainment. Too bad I was so tired that I slept for about half of the flight."
Pros: "Security staff was terrific , the Crew was exceptional . Overall satisfied ..."
Cons: "It was a short flight but still very tight . I couldn't take a longer flight on a 737 . Uncomfortable ."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized on a fully packed flight"
Cons: "They sold an economy class ticket to a 400 pound woman by the window seat of my row and she spilled 50% of the way into the middle seat. The woman assigned the middle switched with a relatively thin member of her own party, but the poor kid was still cheated of his space and pushed against me in the aisle seat. I know it's considered insensitive to complain about the morbidly obese, but c'mon!!! Her inability to control her weight has affected me in a material way by subjecting me and the kid in the middle to 3 1/2 hours of misery. I guess the airline CAN'T call this issue to her attention for fear of discrimination charges, but they might make some kind of compensation (free flight, or at least a food coupon, or a pass to the United Club) to assuage the injured seatmates. Also, the airline was generous with drinks, but served no snack. Nothing? Really? I really don't like United, but, unfortunately, it's the main airline flying my route. I fly them only when there is no other choice."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. You had to pay for the direct TV and the price of wifi has been raised"
Pros: "Flight crew was great"
Cons: "Could not get the entertainment to work"
Cons: "I paid for extra to sit in a certain area and it was not honored."
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "seats too narrow"
Pros: "Everything was on time and went really smoothly."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the plane"
Cons: "I didnt like that I was delayed for almost 5 hours and couldnt get an explanation why. I we landed at our destination at 2 am when i was supposed to be home at 1030pm... I am a frequent traveler and it was a Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "friendly crew, even while working christmas eve. efficient, pleasant, enjoyed the free entertainment options. plane was comfortable, even from the middle seat."
Cons: "too many rowdy children, but that's always the case when you fly to Orlando =("
Pros: "See above remarks"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why do you have to go to Chicago when flying from FL to AZ? Defies logic. Why do we have to witness flight crew removing man with dog from flight? Why didn't anyone think BEFORE they took him into a window seat in economy that the dog wouldnt STUFF under the seat? Why didn't they make accommodations for him instead of turning back the flight and removing him from the plane?"
Pros: "Again everyone made it a great experience answering questions and showing us everything we needed to know to make us at ease and have a great experience"
Cons: "My reserved window seat was changed by the airline at the last minute to a middle seat."
Pros: "Great Landing....Seats should be more comfortable"
Pros: "Beverage service and friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats were unbearable and the plane was miserably hot"
Pros: "Pricing & quickness"
Pros: "Both of my flights were delayed and my connecting flight was delayed at least 4 different times, with a last minute gate change. But because of that some people switched flights so my plane was basically empty which is nice not having squeeze next to a stranger for 5 hours. 7.99 for tv or a movie for a few hours is ridiculous though (movies were free on long flights back in the day). No snacks offered, and the stuard forgot my drink, but other staff was prompt when I asked for it later."
Pros: "Did not fly from LA to Orlando."
Pros: "Excellent service, staff were great."
Pros: "The continued messaging in real time."
Pros: "The free water"
Cons: "I had about 6 inches of leg room and when the passenger in front of me put his seat back tha shrunk to about 2 inches. I'm 6 feet tall so I was actually in physical pain when we off boarded. I did have an aisle seat but tha did not help much. Every time someone passed me they bumped my shoulder."
Pros: "Enjoyed absolutely nothing."
Cons: "My TV was broken. They tried to reboot it but there was no saving it. I had the middle seat on a 5 hour flight. Tried to sleep off the horrible service and awkward seating situation. But really the flight attendants were so rude on the PAs making announcements which were unnecessary. Demanding people sit down as opposed to just going up to them personally and nicely to address the situation. In addition, I was sent to the wrong gate for boarding which almost caused me to miss my flight since no announcements were made."
Pros: "Purchased extra leg room -- food and entertainment offered -- just didn't use."
Cons: "People carrying on luggage -- passengers getting free luggage when the overheads are filled -- time it takes for people to pull luggage out or put it in -- getting bumped with luggage -- Also the flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was traveling with a broken ankle and crutches everyone was very kind and helpful enjoyed the trip. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "The slow process of boarding"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "I like that southwest flew out of the same terminal Bc after the nightmares I walked over and happily paid full price for Southwest."
Cons: "2 agents for 300 bags in the same time window is not only unexpectable but poor customer service. Several people including 6 people in wheelchairs were deeply effected by this event not to mention. 100 of passagers without a answers. There was no staff at the 3 gates ! Even before the planes were scheduled to take off."
Pros: "The price is good"
Cons: "I don’t like the chairs"
Pros: "Really helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Very small (smaller than my kindle) tray tables. It was a very loud plane as well"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No drink service, no entertainment, very expensive. Never again"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "No in flight snacks, entertainment, and seats were not very comfortable."
Cons: "Staff was unpleasant. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The man in the seat next to me decided he didn't want to sit by me, so I had more room to spread out."
Cons: "At the gate, after our flight had been delayed almost two hours, their was only one employee working. This extended our boarding time considerably. One of Frontier's main selling points is that they spend less time on the ground, allowing for them to charge less for airfare. Just not my best experience flying."
Pros: "I like that the flight was nonstop early morning and late evening. That's it!"
Cons: "I hate all the fees. It is a wonder Frontier airlines is not charging to breathe their air, I hate that! The seats are too tight, and the airplanes are old."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. I feel like they put a lot of focus on ensuring they're friendly, responsive and have a nice sense of humor to make up for their airlines terrible timing and equipment."
Cons: "This was my return flight on Frontier and although not as bad as my first still pretty horrible. Upon arriving at the COS airport we were greeted by...no one at check in. We were told they were on "lunch" and we couldn't drop our bags until they finished. There was at least 15 people waiting on Frontier reps to show up and check us in. After that time suck flight was delayed again. Plane was filthy. After looking over the total for the flight it really doesn't save you any money after all the extra fees and poor service. I'll pay more to fly on an airline that shows up."
Cons: "8 hour layover in airport, 2 hours holdover inside plane cabin on departure flight. On return flight 2 hour hold in cabin on tarmac while other frontier plane waits to take off. They were still cleaning up their mess a week later, claiming issues were due to weather while pilots admitted otherwise and all other airlines continued to fly with no issue. I will avoid this airline in the future, its not worth spending a little less to risk your vacation. Also if you have back problems none of their coach seats recline they are so cheap."
Pros: "Smooth flight very pleasant crew."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and the person in front of me did get to recline which made my space even smaller...."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and not organized. Seats extremely uncomfortable. Flight was freezing the entire time. Having to pay additional for every single additional bag brought on board."
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."
Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were awful no room my husband is 6'6 and seats don't recline at all.. We took a red eye and had to try and sleep sitting straight up.. No entertainment not even music"
Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."
Pros: "Good price; easy to book; easy boarding; very punctual (everything on time)."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and cramped; Charged extra for everything (I thought they would ask for more money for carrying my wallet and a pocket comb.). Traveled as a couple; had to pay extra to insure that we could sit together. Are you kidding???"
Pros: "the flight was on time both ways."
Cons: "excessive bag fees. non reclining chairs. having to pay for soft drinks and snacks. LONG loudspeaker announcement trying to sell us their credit card deal. No TV or media available."
Pros: "Arrived early - fun crew."
Cons: "Seats don't recline - slow de- boarding process."
Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."
Pros: "Hummm, landed safely! I do like that "carry on" people have to pay extra."
Cons: "No reclining seats even after paying an extra $50 for the good seats (and to ensure sitting by spouse). Cannot even get a glass of water without an extra charge."
Cons: "You charge extra for everything."
Pros: "I was impressed with the patient attitudes of the crew and the quick thinking to find a solution when we were stuck on the ground for two hours during the blizzard because of power outages that made us unable to finish fueling the plane. The quick turnaround of finding another solution to fuel (flying to an operational airport with the fuel we had), and getting the alternate flight plan to Kansas written and approved was very impressive, and saved my trip."
Cons: "The worse service ever; Would not buy tickets from them again... You get what you paid for - Baggage and seating are extra fees"
Cons: "Another frontier flight delay due to illogical, unidentified "paper work.""
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Pros: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 5 and a half hours due to a storm. Something Frontier had no control over. What they did have control over, however, was their communication, which was non-existent. People at the gate wouldn't tell passengers anything, and responded to questions with "I don't know." When one woman complained about the lack of communication, a Frontier worker told her dismissively that she could call the manager. We kept learning about the flight delays by watching the status board. The front gate workers wouldn't say anything, and most people were too worried about missing the flight to run and get something to eat."
Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Flight was fine, golf clubs made it OK."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay extra for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "Base price. Plane seemed newer and was clean."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude. Tray table was comically small though with absolutely no complimentary food or drink I suppose it doesn't matter. Extremely thin padding on seats making them quite uncomfortable. While the base fee is low, once you factor in all of the fees for check bags, carry on bags, snacks or a drink while on-board, and paying to guarantee you have seats together, you might as well just fly Southwest because Frontier will likely be no cheaper or just barely."
Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."
Cons: "No reclining seats!"
Pros: "We got to St. Louis early"
Pros: "The crew treats you better than crews on more expensive airlines, and they have a great sense of humor. You can tell that positivity and how they interact with passengers is a priority in the hiring and training process. A lot of people have complained about having to pay extra for carry-ons and other luggage, but Frontier is REALLY clear about their policy for baggage when you book, so these people shouldn't have been shocked. It is a great deal for people who only travel with one small bag, and I'm glad that there is an airline that offers such cheap flights for light travelers. If you need to take a lot of luggage, you can add the cost as you are booking and then decide if it's the best deal before you finalize payment. Overall, it was a very good experience. You aren't going to get a ton of extras for free on this airline, but if getting to point B from point A with a nice flight crew is all that matters to you, Frontier is a great deal."
Pros: "I liked that it was cheap, mainly because I was only there for a day and didn't have to pay for luggage. The staff seemed ok and everything else was normal."
Cons: "I didn't like how they basically charge for every single thing. They charge for checked bags, carry ons, the seat selection, and any kid of food or drink that's not water."
Cons: "It was unfair to Charged us $90 for the carry on"
Pros: "Well everything was going well for my family until we arrived at our gate and learned that our plane had been given away to another delayed late turning our 6:10pm departure into a 1am departure. Don't get me wrong I do feel bad for those poor people who were delayed on the other flight, but does it make sense to make an additional 200 or so people late to their destination? You don't have any other plane or pilots in your fleet in case this problem occurs. We were expecting to get into our hotel at 9:30pm. It's 4:15am and we're still not there. Terrible."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
Pros: "always professional"
Cons: "I had to book a secondary flight, my bother DIED unexpectedly, and there was business... not compassion thrown at me. I completely understand business, but geez???????"
Pros: "Can't beat their price even if I had to pay for carry on. It was on time, crew was nice and plane not too bad. If you are on a budget and the journey is what counts it's excellent."
Cons: "They should at least give free water lol"
Pros: "The cost, the ease of booking, everyone was extremely nice. The 'Pilot' or who ever keeps us updated on flying & weather conditions had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The plane was clean & looked brand new. It was cheaper and easier to check a bag than mess with a carry on, if you set it up when you purchase your tickets. I had purchased a soda before boarding but the gave me a glass of ice at no charge (some places charge for the cup). No extra cost for seating unless you want a specific seat. We definitely plan on flying more & recommending it to family & friends. Plus it's cheaper than driving"
Cons: "Tight quarters, the seats are pretty much fitted, prob not very comfortable for above average size individuals."
Pros: "Really good experience"
Pros: "Overall good. 32 minute wait for luggage. Seemed like a long time. 45 minutes from when we departed. Took a while just to get off plane that I am not counting."
Pros: "Everyone were really nice. The service was good."
Cons: "I didn't like the following fact. I was charged $35.00 for a carrying on bag. When the bag met all the requirements needed for a carry on. When other customers had larger bag and they were not charged. The bag was small enough to fit under the seat. I should be re-enburse the $35.00 I was charged. Thank you"
Pros: "The price was good. Considering it was Holiday time."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late!! Just showing up on time would have made it better."
Pros: "It got me where I wanted to go safely."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not friendly, boarderline rude and sarcastic. Only saw smiles when we were deboarding. Seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Snacks/drinks are very expensive"
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "I loved the crew. They made the trip better"
Cons: "I hated the boarding! We were 45 mins early and they made us take our luggage with us, and then made me throw out everything that was 3.4 oz because the luggage was “already taken” to the plane. I will NEVER fly with Spirit again."
Pros: "Helpful with wheelchair, On time..staff on flight good ,staff at checking in rude"
Cons: "Really ?!!!not only have to pay for carry on but then get whacked with 3$ soda and no peanuts....bs"
Pros: "The flight boarded and left on time... We landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I didn’t like the added fee for a seat. Seats should be included in the fare.... I have never heard of that before in my life."
Pros: "The fare was maybe a couple of dollars cheaper than other airlines but"
Cons: "Your baggage fees are ridicules, your airline charges for carry-ons and if you don't do it on line, you pay more at the counter, but if you don't pay at the counter, you pay even a higher fees at the other end. So unfair!!!! I won't be flying this airline any more..........."
Pros: "Friendly funny staff . No issues!"
Cons: "They closed the gate early and 30 of us were unable to get our flight to Orlando. Because we "missed" the flight, they also cancelled our return and kept the money. Crooks!"
Pros: "We got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Reason's why I rated each category poor: Overall - see below categories Boarding - We were told that our bags did not count as personal items, and we had to either pay $130 to carry on two bags or throw them away. Basically, "Have a nice trip, let me start by robbing you." Crew - During the flight, I used the on-flight lavatory. As is normal in most flights, there's no space between the last row of passengers and the mini-room at the back of the plane. To keep from putting my rear in another passenger's face, I stepped into the mini-room until the stewardess commanded that I wait behind the "silver line." Sorry other passenger. At the least be courteous about your command with me and/or the passenger who had to sit in the rear (pun intended). Comfort - No seat back storage, and the flight was as cold as is bearable for the average person. Food & Entertainment - None available. Upon asking for water, we were instead offered ice."
Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap"
Cons: "Why dont the let the back of the plane board before the front so I dont have to bump everyone while I am making my way down the isle. They nickle and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Spirit is ranked America's most hated airline for a reason and that reason I discovered on my last trip. I believe its the most deceptive airline ever. After paying almost $200 for a midweek round trip from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando I also had to pay $55.00 for HAND luggage in one direction. To make matters worse I join their $9 club thinking I would save on my luggage on the return I then had to pay $57.00 for the same hand luggage on the return. After that experience I decide to return to Ft' Lauderdale on the morning flight instead of the evening flight I was booked on. After several calls to their reservation department and 4 persons later I had to paid apprx $120.00 for a SAME DAY change. What was funny is that when I got on the aircraft it had no more than 50 persons on it. So what started out as a quick cheap business trip was now well over $400 and counting . It gets better, thirsty from all the up selling along the way and no way to get a glass of water Spirit then charged me $3.00 for a small bottle of water. I decide to keep my thirst. NOT ANOTHER RED CENT SPIRIT!! BY FAR THE WORSE AIRLINE EVER"
Pros: "I am handicapped and everyone was most helpful."
Cons: "Seat comforts Leg room limited. I do not like the A319"
Cons: "flight was delayed seat was terrible terrible airline"
Pros: "clean new plane friendly staff"
Cons: "The customer service rep would not print my boarding pass. She would not get the manager when requested. She covered her tag so I could not see her name. At one point she jumped from behind the counter to steal my phone."
Cons: "The tray tables are too small"
Pros: "Flights went well, comfortable and within appropriate time frame. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Website not very user friendly which results in having to check baggage at airport and higher cost."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time, and comfortable. The pilot was great with keeping us updated."
Cons: "Being charged a baggage fee whether or not you had a bag to check or bring with you. They charged an extra $5 to bring it on board yourself vs them throwing it under the plane. $65.00 is ludicrous to charge for a bag that isn't checked!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but passengers were kept well informed by the ticket agents and they kept the lines moving, even when the computers went down, I was very impressed by their calm and professional demeanor. In flight crew polite and efficient."
Cons: "Carry on baggage fee was more than I paid when I bought the small suitcase, no good, would consider another airline because of this, also small seats for petite people."
Pros: "The pilot was fab"
Pros: "The flight take off was delayed only briefly, but it arrived on time. The time for departure was very convenient for us."
Cons: "My 16 month old granddaughter's car seat and stroller was supposed to be delivered at the gait, but instead was delivered at the baggage claim area. The car seat was soaking wet and we had to use her blanket and some other clothing to make it partially suitable for her sit in her car seat. We fly 2-4 times a year on different airlines and with the pre-check status we are able to get through security rather quickly. In the absence of pre-check (because Spirit airlines does not have that facility) we were in the security check line for a long time. Our grand- daughter was upset and crying. Fortunately, eventually someone from the security department came to our assistance and expedited her and her parents' clearance"
Pros: "Nothing this was awful"
Cons: "The fact that this was the only flight for the day, and with over 30 people checked in but not boarded they tried to close the doors and leave. Airport was packed and people had hard time making it to gate. Had to convince them to open back up"
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Cons: "I paid $100 dollars for my flight to Orlando with Spirit and I paid $100 for my flight home with Delta. Delta didn't charge me $45 dollars to CARRY ON one bag- and they sent my ticket (for free) to my cell phone. Spirit has so many ludicrous hidden fees- $45 to CARRY ON a bag? That is beyond stupid- and $5 if you don't have access to a printer in order to obtain your boarding pass? I'll never fly spirit again."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know when I bought my ticket that I was going to need to pay extra for everything. I didn't really wind up saving money in the end. The seating is TOO "cozy". I would not fly with this airline again unless it was a very short flight and I could fit all my luggage in a backpack."
Pros: "I like that things were organized ,cleam and in overall it went well"
Cons: "my friends and I did not like one of the ladies at the counter desk because after paying for our surfboard bags 100 USD each bag she claimed that I had to pay another extra 50 for overweight. My friend had to show her the airline's online statement for her to beleive her own companys policy on surfbags.Eventually she suposedly recredited my account. But she did not cos she did not even give me a receipt for it,. You know? We needed to board the plane not hang at the counter desk. She did not even apologize for her wrong doing. Besides her attitude, everyone else was great and things went fine. I also think that if the sits on plane were more comfy more people would fly through this airline."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "no water without paying"
Pros: "The gate agent was very short and snippy at 5:30 am. So, that kind of makes everyone else in a bad mood. Too bad, because nobody was really awake and was looking forward going to the cold North. She could have made it a more pleasant boarding time..."
Pros: "The flight was on time & bordered orderly but having to pay for EVERYTHING extra on the flight is the opposite of a cheap flight & probably ends up costing more. From something as simple as checking in online to a bag of peanuts in flight, there's a fee."
Pros: "Can't beat the price, even though cost of carry on and checked baggage is expensive. Would use again for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "would not use Spirit for a cross country trip because the seating would cripple me by the time I arrived."
Pros: "Nothing was not as advertised. Entire process went to plan. Flight attendants were very nice and efficient."
Pros: "Quick check in. Quick boarding. There were no surprises"
Pros: "First check in Lady was kinda rude about my tiny carry on bag. Then someone else sat in my window seat. So I asked to move to an empty one.. Stewardess said wait till plane is in the air. Which I love take off and landings the best. Then she told me to move from 9d to 3 a....by the window! Then some guy in 1c was rude about sitting off his electronic s. Said stewardess snapped at him which she didn't.. And the first check in lady was also rude about pulling up my artinery. For the flight. . then the Airport only had one lane open for the longest time with 100 people waiting to get through there. I have bad knees. So standing that long was Painful to me."
Pros: "Flight Attendant Marcia Shahab was outstanding!"
Cons: "Small seats, had to pay for everything, not upfront about extra seats, delayed flight, sat on runway for 30 minutes on my return flight after landing"
Pros: "pretty much what i expected. : ))"
Pros: "Security was well organizad. Boarding was quick and flight left right on time!!"
Cons: "The luggage fee cost more than the ticket. I do not believe I want to fly this airline again."
Pros: "My first time flying a low cost carrier, I was impressed. I hope Spirit realize those planes won't stay new forever and need to maintain the interiors to keep that new look. The staff in general were courteous and competent I would fly them again."
Pros: "Flight was good. Plane was over an hour late taking off. Not good for being on time. Bummer."
Pros: "On time. Nice clean airplane."
Cons: "You running out if wine.g"
Cons: "Too much to list. But start with the fact that nickel and diming makes this airline no cheaper than anyone else. So you pay the same for terrible service, smaller seats, and a miserable overall experience."
Pros: "the flight was smooth with a good landing"
Cons: "The seat were hard, uncomfortable and did not recline at all with little to no knee room. The charge of $55 for a carry on which was free on American Airlines on our return trip was overboard. The charge of $55 for a checked bag was $30 higher than American Airlines which we used for our return trip. Now that we know the nickel and dime method of Spirit we will check out other airlines but in this case it was an emergency flight where my wife's brother eventually died in the hospital and we had to get there quickly and flew Spirit. Thanks for having 2 seats available on short notice for this emergency flight."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. The plane was on time and had a fast return flight."
Cons: "The They did not try to help us get more room as there were many unfilled seats. On the way to FL we had a practically empty airplane and were encouraged to move if we wanted. We had wonderful seats up front. There was no entertainment and we did not eat the food. Also spent two hours going in circles on Spirit website trying to list my luggage. I didn't have two hours to spare. I was extremely frustrated."
Pros: "U suck and ur dumb"
Pros: "I didnt eat the food, so I have no comment there. Or the entertainment. I found a kind stewardess who snuck me some water. It was otherwise unavailable for free. I was able to avoid incurring extra fees."
Pros: "Was very happy with the staff n flight thankyou so much spirit. Sincerely Douglas Diaz"
