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: "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: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "Snacks, TV, wifi, leg room - what's not to like?"
Cons: "Bit of an older plane, but still pretty good considering!"
Pros: "The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!"
Pros: "Flights were on time, people were friendly, snacks and drinks were FREE, TVs at every seat, comfortable seating!! What’s not to like?"
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."

Pros: "Nice leg room in row #2"
Cons: "Entertainment system in middle seat did not work"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "They did have entertainment screens which was a plus. During both flights they did not work properly which was frustrating."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by more than 2hrs. We were told that it was because of the weather in Boston. However, other airlines were not delayed this much. Also, it was initially very cold on the plane, but the flight corrected that later by turning on the heat."
Pros: "THe ground crew was able to get me on an earlier flight home."
Pros: "My flight from fort Myers to New York was amazing. Flight was ahead of time and crew was polite."
Cons: "When I received my luggage it was so damaged that someone used clear tape to keep it closed. There was no note inside the luggage to state if it was tsa who went through the bag so I went to customer service to inquire about it. The representative from New York airport stated that I over packed my bag that's why it was damaged. I can assure you that my bag was under weight and there was no problem when i last closed it. So to be clear both zippers on my luggage was completely destroyed and taped up like a ragged cloth. I was embarrassed to walk around with my bag and the only recompensation I received was a $40 credit to my next flight."
Pros: "the air crew was excellent for a great flight! thank you pilot and copilot! :)"
Cons: "waiting in the airplane for a long time for the "union" ground crew to load the bags into the aircraft. They were on hold because of lightning in the area but we saw only 1 strike far away. that's a "union" for you! :/"
Pros: "You can pretty much count on having a great crew with JetBlue This flight's embodied patience: patience with the lady who wanted to bring a smartecarte loaded with diaper bags, blankies, handbags and stuffed animals onto the plane; patience with the baby in the first row who cried throughout the entire boarding process and patience witht; patience with the lady in the first row (who didn't have a seat in front of her to put her handbag containing a small service dog underneath) and two, I guess, wanted to keep the dog on her lap during take off. It was a plane full of first time flyers, with resulting chaos. And they kept their cool throughout."
Cons: "It was a plane full of first-time flyers, with resulting chaos. it's not Jetblue's fault that people are chaotic and babies cry loudly when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. But it sure makes it trying for people who are sharing the same cramped space. You don't realize that there's an art to being a good passenger until you see passengers who are unskilled at being passengers. I know this sounds very unkind, but it was a late flight."
Cons: "It was late about 30 minutes. But the overall was good."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Seems to be every flight we take over the past year has had long delays"
Cons: "Bad attitudes, long lines, and no options. TERRIBLE experience and my vacation had to be canceled."
Pros: "The flights are good, plenty of room and great service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for "weather" was a bit much after sitting all day in the airport. Since no storms were in the NJ area until after 2am. The delay I'm guessing was due to Gov Christies ridiculous FAA changes. I cannot hold JetBlue responsible for this but anyone flying into the north east should count on a delay or canceled flights."
Cons: "The plane was dirty my entertainment system did not work I know Stewart didn't seem like she cared and the plane was 5 hours late due to weather I get that with the day before my flight was cancelled I always fly JetBlue but now I'm thinking"
Pros: "JetBlue has leg room appropriate for adult humans. AA and UA imprison you in spaces so small you suffer actual damage to your body."
Pros: "The flight was fast and comfortable. The crew was quick and organized. The seats were comfortable as was the foot room."
Cons: "The tvs were broken the entire flight but I had a book so I was able to read that instead. When the tvs were working the earphone jacks were so worn out my earphones barely worked. Basically old and tired."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Excellent service throughout."
Pros: "The overall experience was flawless. I look forward to flying again."
Cons: "Nothing. I don't have anything negative to say about the JetBlue experience."
Pros: "JetBlue is my airline of choice. The crew is always nice. The fares are reasonable, planes are clean. I love how their general boarding starts in the back and loads forward. This gets everyone on the plane quickly and efficiently. Also, the crew enforces the overhead bin space for large carry on items and small items under the seat."
Pros: "Early alert about delayed departure - well before we left for the airport"
Cons: "TV's kept resetting and WiFi too during last part of flight."
Pros: "Leg room was comfortable, crew was great."
Pros: "No one knew what they were doing. My luggage didn't make it to my destination. Confirmation numbers weren't working. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "Where do I start?"
Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"
Pros: "Great stewardesses"
Pros: "I like to staff and flight."
Cons: "My legs are too long for the seats"
Pros: "The aircraft, the entertaining"
Cons: "Food service"
Pros: "Crew was nice."

Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Pros: "We were20 min early"
Cons: "The seats are stiff"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, staff appeared very tired, food service was missed twice on one side of our class section like they didn't have assigned sections. Also, the food and drink options do not compare to British Airways who we originally purchased our tickets from. All alcohol is free with BA."
Pros: "I liked the boarding in groups. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The inside of the aircraft was so outdated. The seats were not comfortable with very little leg space. There was no individual screen for entertainment, and no USB port."
Pros: "Decent legroom, good movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible quality and actually made my mom vomit. Crew was pushy and rude."
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing special just another flight another day"
Cons: "AA...they delayed flights and were very unprofessional. i will definitely choose BA over AA anyday."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "Nothing — the flight was cancelled because of a fault on the plane."
Cons: "Cancelled flight.."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean. Boarding went well and staff nice on boarding. Service was smooth though food not great but then it is airplane food. The morning continental food was nicely packaged and good."
Cons: "The plane boarded and left gate a little late but had a maintenance issue with one of its doors so plane had to return to gate. We finally got off the ground almost three hours late but staff tried to be as helpful as possible though they didn’t know much. It was good the passengers seemed fairly patient and accepting. The horror was at the airport in Venice where it took over two hours in very long line just to get through passport check."
Pros: "Crew was hospitable. :) movies were great."
Cons: "Snacks were lackluster."
Pros: "The stewardess were very nice and poliet"
Cons: "the seats not having enough room to get comfortable"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "I had a screen with excellent selections but the audio didn’t work. They reset it twice but nothing. Started watching a movie with CC but 40 min in it ‘died’."
Pros: "The very long TSA line was very fast. Good job TSA. Flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Found the first class seat capsule uncomfortable after about three n hours. Certainly would not want it for Transocean flights."
Pros: "They offered us a little scoop of ice cream."
Cons: "My video screen was busted. Long 9 hrs without anything to watch. Food was cold (as in not reheated after being frozen). Landed at PHL and sat at the gate for 45 min before deplaning, which made us miss our connection. Apparently there’s NO other gate to deplane from than the one they picked. Ridiculous."
Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."
Cons: "Sitting next to emergency exit door with a peep hole for light. Also next to toilette so everyone had to pass us. No overhead above us so our medical and personal items were stowed in 3 places initially."
Cons: "Very long time since I have being on s flight with tv in the aisle , and not on headrest .. this is s international flight ."
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."
Cons: "The three hour delay and the terrible food served."
Pros: "It was American Airlines flight. Some of the crew members were not very polite but majority complied with providing a good service. The plane and the flight were great. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "Bad manners from some of the crew members like snapping fingers to get your attention. Very impolite."
Pros: "It was worth while upgrading to premium plus for the first time I was actually comfortable flying the crew is always kind and caring and the food was. Better than usual. Unfortunately Heathrow employees board handicapped people and the are horrible. They didn't come to board us until the plane was 75 percent boarded which is just unacceptable for a wheelchair user who cannot stand. BA had to stop boarding to get us aboard the plane with the help of BA crew who are great."
Pros: "Price and service"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Cons: "I loved the fact everything was exactly like the booking information. No hassles and no issues."
Cons: "Baggage was lost!!!!!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Pros: "Crew was great, took off and landed early."
Cons: "Plane was very dated, food service was aweful..... bag of chips in first class."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time departure"
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Comfortable enough"
Cons: "No films"
Pros: "On-time departure, and on-time arrival. Just the way I like it."
Pros: "Transport to international terminal was a breeze"
Cons: "Very few food vendors open in the international flight area"
Pros: "The crew were all excellent, the people trying to reroute us were all kind (though one accidentally booked me incorrectly), and once the plane got there the flight was very fast."
Cons: "The airline was really late replacing the plane with the mechanical failure. The gates at Philly were much too far apart to actually make that connection - shout out to the Philly staff who sent is an electric car! But it was a panicky experience."
Pros: "We got free upgrades to 1st class as we used to get at USAir! Great surprise."
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "Crew was proficient."
Cons: "Seating was compact, reminded me of the buses that run from Mexico to the US. "Let's see how many we can fit in there?" Rubbing elbows the entire time."
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: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "My seat was a tad bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Cons: "Had to pay for my own shuttle to the train station (an hour away) and sit on an overcrowded train for hours. Extremely disappointed. Flight was canceled do to "air traffic control." No attempt was made to put me on other carrier's flights even though there were open seats with another airline."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "That all the passengers were allowed a carry on bag, the flt was full and they made a lot of people check their bags, not fare!!! This airlines breaks their people into 5 different classes, I'm not sure what or how they do it, I was a 5, I boarded last, people climbing over each other, use to be back to front, after 1st class, of course. It was ridiculous."
Pros: "Boarding was nice, and fast, but inly because I'm handicapped. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay $4/2hrs for internet/movies for a 3 hour flight....$8 to watch a movie on a 8" screen?? Come on! If you have it available, why isn't it free or included in $600 ticket price? I'm 6'0" tall and weigh 218lbs and I felt like a sardine in a can. Seats are WAY cramped! They probably are comfortable for a 7 year old girl...."
Pros: "We were slightly delayed departing because of a mechanical concern. Thankfully there was nothing wrong so we departed within a few minutes. To compensate the pilot authorized free direct TV for the flight. Very nice I enjoyed a movie. We landed on time."
Cons: "Direct TV cut out for a couple minutes."
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."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Pros: "Everything was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to pay for Internet to watch airline movies on my device. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "I booked my flight over 5 weeks ago, and was given an aisle seat. When I checked in online, my seat had been changed to a middle seat. I tried to change my seat online, and was only given the option of 1 other middle seat. I have to have an aisle seat because of arthritis, and I need to walk around during flight. There were long lines at the desk at the gate, and I couldn't stand there to get my seat changed. Now I'm dealing with lots of leg pain as a result. I NEVER would have booked this flight if I'd known I would'nt have an aisle seat. IT IS "BAIT AND SWITCH"!"
Cons: "Never got there due to my first flight being cancelled. BUT, I did see from my emails that this flight was delayed multiple times and then cancelled as well."
Pros: "The lcd screens in the back of the seats and the availability of watching whatever you wanted was nice. The flight was short so TV cost $5.99. Usually wouldn't do it but the Masters was on so it was a great way to pass the time!"
Cons: "The delay due to weather."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "signed up for a window seat was assigned a middle"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Dinner was served within 1 hr of takeoff and breakfast 1-2 hrs of landing. Nothing served inbetween. There was about 10-11 hrs of nothing. No drinks or snacks served. Very poor service in compairison to other international flights I have taken."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after waiting for 3 hours. The next flight they put me on was the next day on another airline. They put us up in a shity hotel and the meal vouchers only worked at the airport where everything was closed by then or hotel which had no restaurant. United offered a $50 compensation which is a kick in the teeth compared to the inconvenience I was put trough. If I don't get properly compensated from United for that horrible experience I will never fly them again and tell everyone I know to never fly United."
Pros: "On my first flight from SNA plane and crew excellent. Due t storm in Houston we got on and off plane 3x until tower thought it was a go. Captain was excellent explained everything I am a scared flyer but he was so encouraging and funny he made it a goo experience"
Cons: "Flights back from Fort Meyers planes seemed smaller and no room in seats Entrainment 0 can't fix stars Food 0!didnt eat"
Pros: "The crew -- friendly and informative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great direct flight, served coffee & snack as soon as reached cruising, offered OJ & water later. Even offered second cup of coffee. Flight arrived at the gate 15 min. early, the baggage was at baggage carrosel fast"
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."
Cons: "There is extreme turbulence and no one came over the PA system for sure that it was just turbulence. I was afraid"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
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: "On time"
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: "Great comfort. Great crew service"
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: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "seats too narrow"
Cons: "The plane was supposed to have WIFI but it didn't."
Pros: "Our flight was two hours late. We received no water on our flight. We had to wait in the cold/outside to get our carry on bags. Flight attendant was not in the mood, and looked like she was taking it out on the passengers."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "Courteous crew. On time flight( in fact, we arrived in Philadelphia early) love that. Clean plane. Looked new."
Cons: "No drink, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate then delayed again on the plane brocade they couldn't find someone to fill the fuel tank. Once that was complete, we had to wait quite some time before the slip came to the plane to be signed off on. The last issue was that they couldn't get the aircraft pushed out of the gate. The only positive was that my bags arrived this time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2hours from the original departure time."
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: "Non-existent! !! Canceled AFTER the first leg if the flight....leaving us stranded."
Pros: "The flight was fast a head of time."
Cons: "By the time the flight attendant got to our row, she was out of orange juice. Can't believe they don't give out peanuts or pretzels any more. They do on southwest. Once again the steps boarding plane. Very difficult for me to handle. The walk from one end of the airport to the other."
Pros: "Nice crew. Easy boarding/unboarding. Appreciated having my carry-on (not having it gate-checked). Comfortable for coach."
Cons: "On board entertainment did not work."
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"
Pros: "No delays!!"
Cons: "Mother in front of me with two 8 to 10 year olds allowed them to play video games without earphones. She also allowed one of them to pass gas the entire flight. She was sitting with them so she knew what was happening. Towards the end of the flight the attendant finally came over and told them to put ear phones in. It is difficult for passengers to modify the behaviors of other passengers."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Smooth flight."
Cons: "flight delay, then another equipment delay. But, better to fly in a safe airplane than rush things. I think the seats would be a little uncomfortable for a flight longer than a couple hours."
Pros: "Frontier is well priced."
Cons: "Frontier flights are rarely on time. The chairs are very uncomfortable, they feel like lawn chairs."
Cons: "Better boarding process and airline problem in Ft Myers"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "Great check in, gate agents and flight attendants."
Cons: "Had to purchase everything"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "There was an hour and a half delay. The crew knew this before we boarded, yet boarded zone 1 anyway. After boarding we were told to deplane due to the delay. I’m not a fan of airlines that charge a fee for carry on and checking, and soft drinks in flight. It doesn’t really save much in the long run."
Pros: "It was timely no long lines"
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Easy access to boarding pass. Very friendly flight attendant. Flight on time and seats comfortable."
Pros: "The whole thing"
Cons: "Everything was just fok be"
Cons: "Changed my flight gate and didn't notify me, then the plane took off 20 minutes before it was supposed to. Missed the flight. Tried to ask for assistance and all I received was rude people who ignored me. Never again."
Pros: "Price good"
Cons: "Ticket counter people terrible. Rude and brusque. No help with bags. Seats on plane close and hard. Uncomfortable to point of back pain. Will only fly Frontier in nothing else available. Price is only thing they have going for them."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "the plane was clean (opposite of our first trip) and the plane arrived quite early in PHL."
Pros: "The safety announcement just before take off was a refreshing & original presentation done by the very cheerful flight attendant, Brittany."
Cons: "There was a 70 pound German Shepherd taking up my fiance's leg room"
Pros: "The staff on our flight to Philadelphia was excellent!"
Cons: "We arrived at Miami Airport 2 1/2 hours before our flight as request by your airline request only to find no staff .to check luggage. We waited an hour along with 60 other people before any of your staff decided to come to work. I walk with a cane and there were several seniors would had to wait in line. I think it is ridiculous that you do not have staff at the kiosk for your early morning flights. This type of service is unacceptable!"
Pros: "flights there and back left on time. significantly more leg room than on the United flight I took to mexico city recently. seats don't lean back but I don't care about that, and it means that the person in front of me won't be leaning their seat back into me. You have to be very careful that you understand all the rules about baggage and seating (don't pay extra-they'll just assign you one, and you probably won't sit with your traveling companion). Great as long as you can fit everything you need into a bag that fits under the seat in front of you. got TSA pre-check both ways, too. yippee."
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."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I had to buy another flight at the last minute with Delta. Frontier's website did not mention the cancellation at all and I had to find it on Google and Flightview. They refunded me but it could've costed me big-time if I didn't find a cheap last minute flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time and we arrived earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "Seats don't recline on frontier plane."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "They have stripped down the seats of this plane to make more room to squeeze in more rows. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable even for my short 3 hour flight. The try table is less than the size of a half sheet of paper - you simply cannot put your laptop up and work. $35 for a carry on, nickel and dime you for everything including a drink. Last time I will be flying frontier!"
Pros: "Cheap fare, but you pay for everything else. Crew were fun. Plane is spartan."
Cons: "Everything has a price. Everything."
Pros: "Wasn't told of carry in fee which started trip off On a bad note. Crew was very cordially and professional. Seat was like a brick. Overall value/pricing was good. Would fly again. Spots Naples,fl"
Cons: "Seats were like bricks. Crew very nice as was check-in. Overall good value"
Cons: "Seat do not recline"
Cons: "Frontier airlines is a terrible choice for traveling. They charge for absolutely everything and it took me 50 minutes to just check my bag when I got to the airport. I almost missed my flight due to their negligence."
Cons: "flight got cancelled at last moment"
Cons: "Frontier listed the flight as being delayed 1 1/2hrs. on their website, but it actually was on time! The employee at the check-in kiosk said it was a mistake!!?? Good thing we can run fast and security line was short! Every time we fly with them there's an issue, last time!"
Pros: "My flights were on time and my return flight was underbooked so we were encouraged to find a spot where we could have the whole three seats to ourself to be more comfortable."
Cons: "I really didn't like having to pay for a carry on bag which increased the cost of the flight significantly. Also having to pay to have a reclining seat was ridiculous. I found the seats on the plane more uncomfortable than most other flights I have been on. On my flight out, the flight attendants were almost impossible to understand over the speakers (too fast, not speaking clearly) and even mispronounced words from their script (variety)."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "No snacks. Having to pay for a beverage. And there were no in-flight entertainment options and no magazines in the seat back pocket."
Cons: "Bag fair, airline in general"
Cons: "Despite that the plane had clearly not arrived, the desk people indicated we would still be on time, and we were told that we would make up the time in the air. After waiting for 1.5 hours on the tarmac, we were 1.5 hours late to our destination. The seat were very small and not very comfortable and did not recline. We were told when checking-in online that we would have to pay $16 - $50 to guarantee that we would sit next to each other (only 2 people). Also there was a steep charge for checking and even carry-on luggage! The airline also lost one of our bags on the return trip. Pretty terrible experience overall."
Pros: "I specifically loved all of the crew members on my flights to Orlando and back home. They gave me a few good laughs with their jokes and funny expressions. Another great factor of using Frontier is that they keep you up to schedule with your flight by sending you emails from the morning of until your flight departs to insure you don't miss a gate change or flight delays."
Cons: "The only downfall of using this airline is that the customer is not informed before hand that you have to pay an additional, but small, cost to choose your seat. The customer is also charged for a carry on unlike some other airlines who allow 1 free carry on."
Cons: "The worst flight I ever had"
Pros: "Good price, on time. Crew seemed fine."
Cons: "The flight was a GREAT price, so the non-recline seats were expected. What was not expected was Frontier losing my luggage for two days. And since it was a golf trip, I had to rent/borrow clubs for two of the 3 rounds I played. Not ideal. Especially when I had to pay $80 extra to bring them! Having to pay for water is inexcusable!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed fromv9:40 to finally taking off at 12:50 no reason given. A voucher was promised but never received!"
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: "Boarded on Time Flight smooth and early. Only disruptions were at the airport its self."
Pros: "Cost of the flight was substantially less than another airline I was looking into and it was a nonstop flight, whereas the other airlines had 1 or 2 stops. Both flights were on time...everything went smoothly. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "Paying for a carryon was unexpected; it adds about $35 each way), but you are able to carry a smaller bag at no charge."
Cons: "Bait & Switch or Bait & Pile Two plane tickets priced at 156.00 ended up costing 364.00 because I wanted to sit with my wife and we each wanted to bring one carry-on bag! Refused to pay an ADDITIONAL 45.00 each to sit in comfortable seats!"
Cons: "Flight was suppose to leave 9:40pm which was reported on time up until 9pm then flight was delayed until 12:42 am even though weather was completely clear, the pilots and the plane was there. They wanted to "wait for a fresh crew to fly in" from another location. Had to sit in the airport for 4 hours due to poor scheduling? That's ridiculous."
Pros: "Pilot was a cowboy, quick taxi and fast flight, arrived at gate 45 minutes early. On a late flight, the early arrival was a welcomed outcome."
Cons: "I checked a hard case fishing rod tube that contained a brand new fishing rod. The case can be opened from the top and side and both can be locked. The side was the only thing locked and top opening had a simple clip on it so anyone could to easily open it up and inspect the inside. Someone cut the side lock off, took the case apart obviously looking for something and then jammed everything back together securing the cut off lock with a zip tie. After I got home late that night I noticed my lock was cut off and rod broken in 2 pieces. Very disappointed, hopefully someone at Frontier reimburses me for the damage."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "The crew and ticket price are the only positive things I can think of."
Cons: "You have to pay ridiculous prices for just about everything. If water wasn't necessary for basic survival they probably would've charged at least 1 dollar per ounce. You can't recline and leg room is scarce."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
Pros: "On both fights I was surprised by the overbearing rudeness of the flight attendants. I turned around when I heard a loud female voice chastising someone only to find the attendant speaking to a customer. On my return flight, the pilot came in hot causing the wings to sway wildly when on the ground. The stewardess actually said, over the loudspeaker, "yehaw - we're back in Texas!!" This did not comfort me. Also, I travel alot. This was my first experience on Frontier for years. Not impressed with anything but the price."
Pros: "Polite and Pleasant staff. Clean airplane. Inexpensive ticket. Direct flight. Couldn't ask for anything else. Thanks Frontier!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, being in the front of the plane was nice, and the flight staff were professional and excellent"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable, but spacious enough."
Cons: "It was delayed and arrived 2 hours late. I had booked the flight specifically for its departure and arrival time. It was my first time flying with Frontier, and I will not fly with them again."
Pros: "The plan was new and clean. Nice job on the finishes.flight was turbulent and the staff was very attentive to those passenger that needed assistance,great job."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we received no explanation to as why. Then when we boarded the flight it was half empty. But everyone was seated towards the back of the plan on top of each other.I asked the attendant if me and my son could move to one of the at least 20 empty rows, because we were seated apart from each other ,was told I would have to wait even though the boarding was completed. The attendant came back selected to move 3 rows of passengers to balance out the flight and never move us. And to pay for carry-on is ridiculous!"
Cons: "Especially for a red eye flight, I have never had a more uncomfortable flight experience. I couldnt fall asleep on my flight due to inadequate leg space, nonreclining seating, and seats that did not support my back."
Pros: "smooth flight, easy check in, nice service, hassle free"
Cons: "no recliners, long wait from landing to gate"
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
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."
Pros: "I am handicapped and everyone was most helpful."
Cons: "Seat comforts Leg room limited. I do not like the A319"
Pros: "clean new plane friendly staff"
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."
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
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: "The pilot was fab"
Pros: "Compared to Frontier I liked the smooth moving lines for bag check ins, and a ground person helping folks backed up on flights that were boarding and in a panic. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "It's hard when we can't get a beverage or snack anymore on a plane."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Pros: "Sprit ground crew distroyed my luggage"
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."
Pros: "The flight and crew were good! Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The add ons for carry on luggage and seating. I had to pay $45 each for carry ons and $10 a seat to choose my seats so my wife and I could sit together! Terrible"
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: "It was the cheapest"
Cons: "Almost everything."
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: "Crew was awesome and flight was great when it finally arrived."
Cons: "Flight being delayed numerous times and it seemed like the workers who boarded us had no clue what was going on"
Cons: "Didn't like all the extra charges!!!! Didn't like unprofessional ticket agents and flight attendants. (not good to have panicky flight attendants in turbulence) Didn't like the three hour delay getting home Cramped seating. Sodas were $3!!"
Pros: "We didnt receive our suitcase in GA (12/22). we waited at the airport for 3 horus and they couldnt figure out where the suitcase went. Then we filled a claim form. my Fatherinlaw was in the car waiting for us for 3 hours. We went home and realized my meds are in the suitcase. I called a few times but they still couldnt track the bag. We had to go shopping for clothes because we had a party that night and I had to buy cosmetic, clothes, toilterites, etc. it was a waste of time. Time I could be spending with my family. Me, my husband and my inlaws called a few times next day (12/23) asking for an update but no one had a clue where the bag is. At this point, we had no idea where to bag is so we had to go shopping again and buy more clothes for next few days. Again, more time, money, gas in car, other people time that had to drive us invested… it was very frustrating. I take a lot of meds which makes me anxious and this created a huge stress on my Christmas vacation. All of my gifts I got for our family was in the suitcase. This was a very frustrating time for me and my husband, not knowing if the family will have gifts ontime. Also, my laptop charger was in the suitcase so I had to take days off from work. We called again a few times on 12/24. we called in again and no answer. We drove all the way to the airport and spoke to a really nice lady. We were at the airport for hours. She couldn’t track the luggage so we went home disappointed. Keep in mind, this was Christmas eve and I could have spent all this time shopping, driving to the airport, to busy stores. By this time I gave up on the bag and accepted we have lost it… I was very very upset because all of my gifts, new clothes I got for the vacation, my cosmetic, my husband’s electronics… We had more than 3K worth stuff in the suitcase. I couldn’t even get hold of the customer service to talk to someone. This was Christmas eve.. and my husband was still trying to call someone. Finally got hold of someone and they said that the bag was in Philly and will get to the house next day 1pm. Ok, great, atleast they could track the bag… Anyways, 1pm next day, no bag..we tried calling all day, but no answer. Finally my husband got hold of someone and they said that the bag will be deliver Xmas night. WOW! But ok. Whtever at this point. We waited all evening.. then called again. They didn’t answer. Finally around 10pm they answered and told my husband that we are 5th in line for the bag delivery and they wont be able to get to us until late in the night. My husband agreed to the time. They called us 230am and asked to verify address which I am glad they did because they had a wrong address. Anyways, my husband was on the phone texting/ calling for directions and finally the bag came at 4am…. The suitcase was damaged. Gladly nothing was missing… HOWEVER, the frustration for the whole week made my Christmas trip a really bad one… I am very big on customer service so it frustrates me that we were not able to contact anyone to get answer.. I understand that the luggage could get lost but not being able to track it for days while you are on vacation in a different state??!!! It was the most frustrating thing me and my family had to deal with. Also, I paid $50 both sides to check in a bag which I didn’t use. I got the bag 4am 12/26, the day I flew back home… so I paid all that money to check in my bag for stuff I never used. Glad I was able to give gifts to my family the day after Christmas. Also, all the stuff I bought for the week including clothes, cosmetic, charger so I can work from home, etc. I had to ship the stuff back which I paid for…. AWFUL experience."
Cons: "Never fly this airline unless your going to your in laws and really were looking for an excuse not to go. The baggage fees and seat fees are over the top and the airline cancelled my flight on Dec. 25 and said they were unable to accommodate me until Jan. 4th. Seriously. This airline is a joke!"
Pros: "Website to difficult to use. Couldn't get a seat. My Dad bought the ticket and I couldn't get on the website even using his name. Took 50 minutes to get our bags in baggage. Coming to FL our flight was delayed 6 hrs because we didn't have a crew. You guys are clueless"
Pros: "I had a row to myself on the way back. That was about it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation given, Spirit charges exorbitant bag fees even for carry-on luggage, which isn't made very clear when you book. Charging more for carry-on bags instead of checked bags means that I had to waste even more time waiting for my bag to come through baggage claim on both legs."
Cons: "I don't understand how every other airline was able to fly in and out of Boston but spirit was not. I received absolutely horrible customer service. People would much rather their flight be delayed by 3-5 hours instead of being canceled. I have had a horrible expierence every flight and it simply is not worth it anymore."
Cons: "didn't ride because their plane wasn't able to hold most of the people on the plane (including myself) so I was booked on a completely different flight with AA."
Cons: "This may not be a totally accurate review for this specific flight, since it never happened because it was CANCELLED. Spirit Airlines in general is a horrible airline company to deal with. Constant delays, TERRIBLE customer service, absolutely NO refund policy, and ridiculous rebooking times. My flight was cancelled due to a huge winter storm, and Spirit said they couldn't book me til FOUR days after my original fly-out date. I have never had a good experience with Spirit - cramped seating and never have been on a Spirit flight that left on time. I will never be flying with this company again."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled due to "weather" even though every other airline was flying to the same destination. Then, after waiting an hour and a half for customer service and another 45 minutes of arguing, I finally got a refund on my flight and a $7 voucher for food which can only be used in the next 48 hours. It was a miserable experience."
Cons: "customer services was not helpful. They cancelled our flight and would not refund me until I waited in a 2 hour line, which made me late to my next flight; which I missed. They were very rude and uneducated on the process."
Pros: "Great fare on the flight, flights were on time and the crew was great."
Cons: "The cost to check a bag is ridiculous. $42 - $100?! Make sure you check in before you go to the airport to save $$$$"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The. People that work here are horrible. Rude and very unhelpful. We will never use them again.."
Pros: "was cheaper than the other flights"
Cons: "I had almost no leg room. was far more difficult to get my ticket compared to other airlines. I know that it is a n economy airline and that Spirits goal is to make the flight as cheap as possible, but for how uncomfortable and annoying the trip was for me I would much rather spend the extra money on a better flight."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The flight crew left an overhead bin open during takeoff!! And it was over an exit row. This airline is pathetic in so many ways. Minimum $3 for anything to drink, even water?? Seats hard as a rock. Aweful experience"
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and uncomfortable; flight delayed so long I missed my time for rental car....had to get another from adifferent company."
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline. They claim to be affordable, but charge for basic flight accessories. A carry-on costs $55, and a checked bag costs $52. You can't even get free water in-flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight. Spirit cancelled my entire ticket because of that. The round trip was cancelled. Nonsense. I lost all my money. I had to book another ticket."
Pros: "Spirit Airlines is a complete nightmare"
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: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."
Pros: "Flight was on time and got to destination early. First time flying spirit nothing went wrong."
Cons: "Since not being able to even get a free dink of water is disappointing."
Cons: "The luggage fee cost more than the ticket. I do not believe I want to fly this airline again."
Pros: "On time. Nice clean airplane."
Cons: "You running out if wine.g"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did nothing to help me get another flight. They tried pushing me back 4 days and said I was taking the risk booking with them. I ended up having to scramble to find a new flight and paying a lot more money. I was not happy."
Cons: "nickel and diming everything, seats did not go back, could not even read a magazine sue the tiny tray tables. Will never fly Spirit ever again, Flights crew was lovely."
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: "I made it to Vegas and back to Philadelphia safely."
