Fort Lauderdale connection is very bad with immigration with all the flights coming in Chicago should be a destination for direct flights to Columbia least they can take care of the crowd fast enough
Seats in row 2 very uncomfortable for sleeping!
Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone
They are misleading, rude and deceitful.
Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "Wayne at the DCA Airport was gracious and amazing."
Cons: "The planes still aren’t clean. Pretty sure something was growing on the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Extremely disappointed about flight 1379 scheduled to depart at 0658, 18 Jun 21. Flight departure was moved to 10:30 AM and later to 12:30 PM without giving any reason for the delay to the hundreds of passengers that arrived at the airport between 4:30 AM to 5:30 AM to meet the airlines requirements. Poor performance by Jet blue. Lost of time and money for me. Thumps down. Blue is my favorite color, live up to it."
Cons: "Flight attendant sucks. They not courteous and the left me without a plane ticket to my connection flight"
Pros: "Yes everything was great"
Cons: "Very good airline. Worry free"
Cons: "Baggage took an hour"
Cons: "Nothing really. JetBlue is top notch in my book."
Cons: "Late boarding, crew was snotty, plane was freezing"
Pros: "Paid seat was comfortable, entertainment was great"
Cons: "The elder gentleman was very rude throughout the flight. Paid for front row seat mostly due to covid and he made us seat and wait for people that had a connection flight to exit the plane all the way from the end of the aircraft defeating the purpose of me buying the front row seat at $65 which was more than the seat was worth. The way the crew asked was was very rude because he stated if we stand up he would keep the door closed. I understand about the passengers with connection flight but its Jetblue responsibility to get these people to their connection but it shouldn’t jeopardize me."
Cons: "The delay was almost unbearable"
Cons: "Everything, for example being on time"
Cons: "At the airport we are still waiting for our luggage almost an hour"
Pros: "Nice leg room, I like the option to watch TV for free"
Cons: "Our plane had a maintenance issue we didn’t bord for an hour after the original Time. The communication could have been way better from the gate agent to let us know updates."
Pros: "Crew was kind and very helpful. Also, I found the seats to be comfortable and didn’t feel squished. There was plenty of leg room. Great experience overall. Thank you!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Was a fantastic experience!!!!"
Cons: "If the flight was not delayed for so long"
Pros: "excellent free snacks and nice water!"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Pros: "I liked the prices for the airfare"
Cons: "Boarding didn’t start until probably 10:30 or so. Flight was supposed to leave at 10:20, but there was a broken seat or something that needed to be repaired."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "The plane that the rerouted to replace the original plane was very comfortable. The email updates where better then the information at the gate. Normally, I enjoy flying JetBlue however, this weekend's round trip was disappointing. My 1st flight was delayed about 5 hours and the return flight was delayed as well."
Cons: "The long delay and limited snacks. (After that long delay) The incident on the plane- the passengers had to take action and not the flight attends when a passenger threaten by another passenger. A good Samaritan came to the woman's aid and ensure she was safe by switching her seat. Prior to this, another passenger had to use her call button to try to notify the flight attends because the woman was unable to. (That was her second attempt to notify the attendants). I am unclear to why her first attempt to change seats was not taken under consideration by the flight attended. The alleged passenger was clearly intoxicated and had fallen on the women. The flight attends did intervened after the flight landed at FLL. The woman was detained on the plane along with the alleged passenger. Once again, I am not sure if that was wise. The woman could have been taken off the plane safely and quested at the gate at a safe distance. The alleged passenger was too intoxicated to comply with the flight attends requests to disembark the plan. I would have liked for the JetBlue flight attends to be more proactive or at the very least to keep an eye on the situation to ensure it did not escalate. This all could have been avoided if the woman's 1st request to change her seat to one of the many available seats was granted. Better ye,t for this alleged passenger to have never been able to board the plane in his condition. It was physically noticeable and the surrounding passengers stated they could smell the alcohol on him. Disappointed!"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Pros: "They didn’t make me check my carry-on even though full flight. Other airlines almost always do. Began boarding exactly when they said they would."
Cons: "First attempt to check im at kiosk failed. Was told to see an agent. Ignored that command made another attempt at kiosk and was able to get BP. The brag about their free wifi at every seat but it didn’t work. Can’t complain tho because seat back video screen had plenty of other entertainment."
Pros: "I appreciated the in flight entertainment, the eye mask and ear plugs."
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable. The controls for the screen are on the arm rest, where they get inadvertently pushed. Would have liked another beverage service on a flight that long."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The seats are comfortable. We arrived 45 minutes early."
Cons: "The WiFi was horrible. Too slow to do ANY work that I counted on doing before starting my vacation."
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "lots of room."
Cons: "not one thing all good"
Pros: "The flight wa on time, fast and safe."
Cons: "Everthing was fine"
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Pros: "If you have amazon prime, free wifi, any of amazon streaming service!"
Cons: "Food options, but, who has good food on an airplane?"
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Pros: "I like the fact that Jetblue handled the on boarding ot the passengers fast and efficiently starting with preferred riders, then going from the rear of the plane and moving forward. They also realized the plane was full so offered customers the free option of checking a bag in cargo. I would have preferred if they advised customers before checking through security of this option as I would have taken it rather than discard with some bottled products. The entertainment video was great on board, they offered free beverages and snacks. The crew moved through the aisle fast and efficiently when dispersing the food, and again when collect the refuse. While we had a little turbulence, the flight was uneventful and the pilot handled the landing very well. Departing the plane was also fast and efficient, although takes time because the plane was full. Overall, I was impressed with JetBlue, and their flight team."
Cons: "I thought that although comfortable, the chairs and fabric were obviously well worn and definitely needed upgrading. I also noticed that the chair head area didn't have a removable sanitary cover, which I thought should be there considering the number and frequency of change overs per seat on these flights. This is necessary to promote sanitary and comfortable conditions."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, going out of their way to find spots for the few people left who still had carry on baggage. They tried very hard to make sure everyone had their luggage with them, which I thought was very nice as I have not seen that in any other airplane. They were also very polite and generous with the snacks and drinks, and came around multiple times with garbage bags."
Cons: "The plane itself was incredibly old and the seats were worn down with marks and smudges. It smelled quite bad but at least the TV's still worked."
Cons: "My trip of a lifetime to Peru (Choquequirao, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca) has been severely impacted because my luggage was not put on my flight. Computer record showed that I did not board despite my boarding pass being scanned and my passport number entered at the gate before I boarded. I left for a 6 day trek to Choquequirao, Peru without any of the gear that I needed for this trip. I had to acquire the bare minimum in a rush the night before leaving for the trek. I'm 10 days into my trip and still do not have my bag. Central baggage claim has been less than sympathetic and not at all proactive or helpful."
Cons: "This delay made me miss my rental car reservation so I have to find another car for the night. Which cost me 100$ when I already had a car booked. Then since I didn't get there in time they canceled my reservation and find a new rental for the week. First bad experience with jet blue"
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Better snacks. Chips or mini cheese platter"
Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Crew could have been more helpful, had a 30 min layover and the gate was very far away. They could have told us directions"
Pros: "Very nice people and helpful. Good attitude"
Cons: "Board was a bit disorganized and took much longer than I am used to even on full planes"
Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"
Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "K a y a k. Booked tickets on WestJet for us, but we were never told that check in and reservation was to be manage through delta so checkin was difficult and we ended up with poor seats because we were not given any advance notice"
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "Great crew. Seat was not too bad."
Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Easy work trip and with the storms coming in I was able to get out early without fees"
Cons: "Snow storms. Not a fan."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff"
Cons: "That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "No shoulder room"
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
American airlines has always been great. Will definitely be using them in the future!
From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!
Cons: "Not charging me 100 dollars For a luggage that was 56 pounds"
Cons: "Smooth flight. Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "Attitude of flight attendant"
Pros: "super uncortable. everytime AA is shrinking their seats. wifi wasnt working and u have to pay"
Cons: "Seating is extra tight. I’m 6 feet tall and find American seats to be too closely packed together."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Flight was too crowded!"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"
Pros: "We were allowed to take a carryon bag, unlike on a United flight we took on our way from Chicago to Hartford, without paying $30 to do so. When we got to the Gate for this flight, complimentary checking of carry-on bags was allowed, and that helped speed the boarding process, not just for us, but for all the people on the flight."
Cons: "The on-line entertainment system wasn't working."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No tvs that was a major let down as i was traveling with 2 kids i was really not happy about that my 6 year old just wantex to watch something and kept asking every 2 minutes if we were there yet... so please some tvs on those plains would greatly appreciated."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Pros: "Courteous, friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Stewardess was cheerful and helpful. The flight while full was not crowded."
Cons: "Plane was late. Mechanical issue at the gate after boarding. Seating room pretty tight. Three gate chanes at O'Hare."
Pros: "My throat was sore and stewardess was able to give me water while I attempted to take cold flu pills"
Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Cons: "Sat on plane for over 3 hours waiting to take off. They didn't offer any drinks or snacks at all while we waited. They said if we get off we may not be able to get back on. Barely made any announcements Once we did take off all they gave us was a packet of so called pretzels that were stale and gross!!"
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "No yves on the plane like delta. Flight delayed 5hrs"
Pros: "The third set of pilot tried their best to get us a spot to fly out due to bad weather we took off after almost 3 hours"
Cons: "The airline should have at least coordinated their crew arrangement before passenger boarding time, and have to change crew members three times after passengers boarded."
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "I liked that the middle seat was open on my flight and that they checked my carry on for free because the plane was filled."
Cons: "I didn't like the minimal leg room. Also, there is no way to try and work on a computer anymore because of the lack of room."
Pros: "The plain went to the runway then stated that needed more gas due to weather so we returned to the gate, three hours later we finally departed. In two flights in three days I was delayed 9 hours"
Cons: "The 9 hours delay and zero compensation"
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "Good crew good flight everything was grwat"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight was good. Overall I was very happy with the overall fight experience."
Cons: "Delayed for 'weather' but weather was fine and missed my connection by 10 min and needed to sleep the entire night in airport"
Gate area at Newark was great. Nice design. Much better than 10 years ago when I used to fly out of Newark all the time. Boarding process went smoothly. Flight was on time all around. Bag was at baggage claim as soon as I walked to the claim area. Super fast. Probably by best flight ever on United.
I didn’t eat any of the snacks nor drink any of the beverages available on the flight. I tend to fall asleep on the plane, which is what happened. It has been a while since I have flown United, I appreciated the spacious seating, comfortable seats and improved planes. Thanks for making the flight easy and enjoyable, it seems like the company has been working on making general improvements to their flights and it’s paying off.
Cons: "Would be good to know I need to download an app on my phone before the flight in order to access the entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew issues. On time is always better. It was not to late though. Only about 30 minutes."
Cons: "I bought WiFi but never worked. Entertainment didn’t work either. It was cold. At the airport, United has huge lines for bag drop both curbside and inside. waited 30 plus minutes and gave up. Checked bag at gate."
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Pros: "smooth flight. Attendants were great flight crew super nice!"
Cons: "Seating is just too close. Seats can be more comfortable for what we pay for. A little more room an comfort can go a long way"
Cons: "The seats where very uncomfortable One of the bins would not close and flight attendant stressed out show frustration in front of the passangers"
Pros: "Aircraft temperature was nice, which is controlled by the pilots"
Cons: "United boarding system was down United flight attendants on my flight said they would not help us in emergency over an announcement Outdated seat entertainment with directv THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR Seats always feel too small but I’ll just include it here"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working."
Pros: "The crew members are nice and professional"
Cons: "The aircraft is out dated and less comfortable than an old bus. It’s time that ALL airplanes will feel as comfortable as a movie theater. And have screens and wifi .. and be comfortable to even take a knapp"
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally nice."
Cons: "Advising passengers in a timely fashion about weather delays. Left for air post @ 3:15 for a 5:58 flight. When I got to Newark I discovered my flight was delayed. Left the party early, which was reason for trip to sit in airport for hours. I generally fly Jet Blue & I definitely will stay with that airline. Second experience & last one with United. Paid $25 extra for a roomier seat which I never have to do with Jet Blue."
Pros: "Flight was good, nothing stood out as good or bad. It just seems like a very tight space (I'm 5'3 and less than 150 lbs)."
Cons: "Going through TSA in Newark Airport was HORRENDOUS. A TSA agent grabbed my things out of my hand and threw it on the belt without any consent from me. I was still unpacking my carry on, to abide to the rules and no she just wouldn't have it and was very rude."
Pros: "Bought a ticket through a discount site. Since I'm a senior I really didn't realize certain things. Didn't realize my TSA wasn't accepted with this ticket, also I'm was in group 5 & always in middle seat. First time I flew on United. I bought the same type of ticket for a flight in April very unhappy about my mistake. I used Skiplagged."
Cons: "The crew was very helpful & pleasant."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up in our row only, would have been nice to know. Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess, there were other options for $$. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was over 4 hours late and they just 20 mins ups to death!! Had to spend lots of $$$ on urber tp get home because my ride that was cpming at 11:00 pm could not come at 4:30.am since most people have to work."
Pros: "Staff at the ticket counter was friendly enough to me personally, although was extremely reactionary to the restless crowd. I am glad that I was able to be rerouted to another destination where I could be driven home within three hours. Good food boxes on the plane (I had the Tapas). Friendly crew onboard."
Cons: "No offer for any sort of compensation for significantly altered travel. Even just a stock email acknowledgement would have been nice. Expensive wi-fi options on the plane, electrical outlets for only half of the plane."
Pros: "I did not like any part of the trap maybe when they offered us some preferences that was included in the fly that's about it"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed the text message updates said we're not accurate"
Pros: "Enjoyed the friendliness of the pilots. As they made my sons day when he was able to go into cockpit and see them. We arrived earlier which helps."
Cons: "Very tight and narrow rows. One of the smallest (jumbo) planes I've been on. Tons of turbulence as well."
Pros: "The flight crew and the cabin crew were professional and efficient and friendly. The ginger ale kept me from getting nauseous during the turbulent approach."
Cons: "I realize that the airline doesn't have much control over screaming babies, but the reality is, my flight experience was significantly worse because of one, a couple rows back, who kept screaming at the top of their voice for most of the flight. While everyone was seating themselves, my fellow rowmates asked me to exchange my window seat for an aisle seat, so that grandmother, mother, and daughter could sit together. That put me two rows closer to that screaming baby. I came prepared to watch a movie with my phone and new noise canceling headphones, and then discovered the United Wi-Fi didn't offer movies on that flight, the same aircraft type and route as when I was able to watch a movie that way, earlier this year. I didn't find a way to connect my Bluetooth headphones to the plane's entertainment system, and I'm also disappointed in myself, to have to say, it took me far too long, to figure out that I needed to interact with the screen in front of me, through the control pad under my elbow on the armrest. By that time, there wasn't enough time left in the flight, to start a movie. So, I just played music stored on my phone, which helped mask the baby screams."
Cons: "No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."
Cons: "It would be helpful if Kayak or airlines could highlight or include the TSA Pre number automatically on check in."
Pros: "Early boarding for families"
Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight from Newark to Ft. Lauderdale due to a 30 minute weather delay, and then an hour long delay imposed by Newark Airport due to air traffic volume. I had to sleep (barely due to all of the nighttime maintenance going on) on the damn floor by my standby gate because I couldn't afford a hotel and United refused to pay for one."
Pros: "Great staff, gave me utensils so I could eat a yogurt I had brought. Very friendly"
Cons: "No free WiFi as advertised. No tv. Not very comfortable seats"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Boarding process was fast and smooth, the plane looks clean and the seats where okay Free soft drink and pretzels"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you download the united app and try the wifi entertainment. Slow and not always working"
Pros: "Crew was good at keeping USB up to date on turbulence and when they would be around to help."
Cons: "The landing. It was rough and abrupt."
Pros: "Was an easy flight and staff was pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "The gate crew stopped the last 40 people from bringing on their carry on bags... of course I was the first person of the 40. When I got on the plane... there were numerous EMPTY overhead bins and further, my bag would have fit comfortably under the even more space seat in front of me. I plan my travel carefully so I can bring on the plane. They were wrong for gate checking without asking the crew ON the plane. All 40 bags would have made it. BS. Flight delayed awaiting for another crew member. Snack was mixed bag of "stuff". Would prefer a choice of name brand snacks or nothing at all. Wifi should be free. What does it cost them?"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was great. No complaints for the air and the ground team at all"
Cons: "WiFi and TV it's way too expensive No free options to entertain yourself. At least give us a USB port on the seat to access my mobile device. Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Luggage was nowhere to be found for 12 hours. Had to go to the airport to pick up the next day. Luggage tracking web site is useless - it does not get updates at all. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Garrett's popcorn They seem to be trying to improve the food. Tsa precheck great Love that I was offered a ride through Newark airport on a cart!"
Cons: "No chocolate snack items, you have to buy a whole kit to get something chocolate and you don't know what it is. Long line packed in jetway to board. Slight maintenance delay but handled it quickly."
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
Cons: "My seat was given away and had to rebook on another flight and another airline"
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "late which made me run to my next flight which was quite a hike"
Pros: "The nonstop overnight flight was very good. We will for sure choose that again. Much better then daytime with stops"
Cons: "We didn't use food or entertainment, but rating option didn't give that, so it wasn't bad just not used"
Pros: "Fight on time. Minimal turbulence. Effecient flight sttendants"
Cons: "Pesky kid sitting next to me who cried, whined & spilled his orange juice on me!!"
Pros: "It canceled"
Cons: "It canceled"
Pros: "Boarding the plane was Good"
Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hoursvwirh no explaination. Checked in early and was given a boarding pass with the wrong name on a flight to the wrong city. Hate agent in KW said she would call us up to rebook us on 1:06 flight and never did. Most passengers could not understand the flight attendants announcements. Very poor experience. Better from FLL to KW."
Pros: "Was on time and very smooth flight"
Cons: "Too many change of gate. I felt like i had to look out to make sure the gate didnt change"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Better food would have made my night"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Pros: "The lady next to me said “if these seats get any smaller you’ll have to be 10 & under to ride!”"
Pros: "No, the seat is not comfortable. Only 40 pounds for the luggage?? Not good.."
Cons: "Increase the pounds for at least 50. Add the neck pillow at least to the seats. Little space for the legs. In overall at least it comply with the purpose"
Pros: "Early departure and early arrival!"
Pros: "not much. bumpy flight , seating tight"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seat seemed more comfortable than another airline I was on."
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect. Smooth landing as well. Great pilots!"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Seats are a bit tight."
Cons: "I purchased a seat and someone else was sitting in the seat. I had to be reassigned to a different seat."
Pros: "Easy boarding/unboarding, seat assignments, self servcie luggage tagging at FLL."
Cons: "Fees for everything - including seats so we could ensure we sat together. Still prefer all-in cost. Wound up paying more than another airline. Tray table very small, no entertainment, ticket counter staff not very friendly (BDL) - act like we were bothering them. No self service luggage tagging at BDL"
Pros: "No one ended up sitting next to me."
Cons: "You have to pay for any beverage, including water. This was a 5 hour flight. I don’t know anyone that would think a free glass of water should be optional and therefore considered a la carte. There was no water in the bathroom to wash my hands. Got stuck behind the beverage cart and flight attendant had a nasty look on her face. Chairs don’t recline and I had to pay $50 to check my carry-on bag in because I didn’t read the fine print or visit their website after booking so although it seemed like the cheaper option I probably ended up paying the same amount or more. I wouldn’t recommend this airline if you want to fly comfortably."
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The trip got canceled due to unrest in Nicaragua, but they wouldn’t give us our money back, even though we had bought flight insurance. This is a scam!! Do not use them ever!!"
Cons: "Arrived at airport after receiving messages of a delayed flight only to be turned away to fly! Spirit advised although my flight had been delayed three times between 4-7pm I needed to arrive at the airport 1 hr before my initial time to fly (6:15). No refund no options other than to file a complaint! No trip happened as a result of this"
Pros: "No me gusto nada..."
Cons: "1.me cobraron $100 por la maleta pequeña por q hubo un error cuando compre mi boleto,error de ustedes no mio,hice escala y me cobraron 50 y 50. 2.no hay personal suficiente que hable Español,estaba perdida y sin ayuda en español. 3.no dan Meriendas en los vuelos,todo lo cobran. 4.espacios pequeños en el avion y el avion vacio y me dieron el peor asiento. 5.tuve una muy mala experiencia tube que hacer chek in 2 veces,salir y volver a entrar cuando no era nesesario...tuve un pesimo dia y hasta llore.."
Pros: "Almost everything about the flight."
Cons: "There's no entertainment at all and there's no food."
Cons: "Pricing is a hoax. Had to pay $50 per checked bag and $55 for a carryon. And had to pay additional fee to select a seat at the airport. I own parent of this problem by not checking fine print, but feel led astray by original advertised ‘ticket proce’."
Pros: "Easy and affordable. Clean"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "$45 for carryon fee, uncomfortable seats, lavatories had no water."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and offboarding"
Cons: "Seats are narrow, feels squeezed"
Cons: "Luggage $45 carry on $38 this is where spirit gets you"
Pros: "No waiting times Fast boarding Absolutely love that Spirit has arrived to Bradley airport and flies direct to FLL"
Cons: "No WIFI on board"
Cons: "miss flight sitting there at restaurant no coutersy call there where rude cost extra 1900 one way to sxm told manager from spirit airline carlos was his name lugage was sent to san juan medicine was in are lugage they said it was are fault to have are medicine in the lugage never again whith them sad lot money extra"
Pros: "Flight was non stop"
Cons: "All the additional charges for carry on and paying for my selected seat. Will not fly this airline again. by the time I paid all the added $174 of cost it was the same price as any other airline. The epic logistic failure at Ft Lauderdale. I got to the airport 2 plus hours early and still barely made my flight in time. I wanted to get something to eat but I couldn't because I had to wait in two lines to get my boarding pass, because the Kiosk would not print my ticket. In addtion to Spirit overloading TSA in their terminal. My worst flying experience ever, and I fly a lot!"
Pros: "I found a great price for my tickets...."
Cons: "Unfortunately the price for a carryon outweighed the ticket price. I checked online and it said $25 and up for a carryon. At the airport they were all the same price of $52, not to mention they had the worlds smallest carryon dimensions so I had to check my backpack! Won't be flying with them again"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Cons: "When we flew in from Montego Bay to Fort Lauderdale and we had to go through customs; no flight member told us that we had to get our bags from baggage to take through customs with us and then if you had a connecting flight, that you would need to re-check your baggage and go through TSA again. Also, we were not informed that if we had duty-free liquids to put them in your baggage that you would have to re-check. Needless to say, I had to find a box to put my duty-free liquids in to have checked at the ticket counter before I was able to go through TSA. It was a terrible flying experience and I will not be flying with Spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Our flight never left because they didn't schedule a crew to fly the plane. I received an email only 6 hours before my early morning flight so I was unable to even find another flight to take. When I received the email there was no explanation as to why my flight was cancelled. I then waited on the phone for over an hour to speak with someone, I was told that no crew was scheduled to fly the plane. Because of this airline I missed my sisters graduation. I will never ever be flying with this company again. On top of that they try to rip you off by making you pay 50 dollars to carry a bag on the plane. Their flights may be cheap but they are completely unreliable and I would rather pay more for my flight then deal with this terrible company again. NEVER FLY WITH SPIRIT!!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, on-time flight."
Cons: "Extra charge for seating"
Pros: "Cost more an we thought"
Pros: "The price was good for a weekend get away .."
Cons: "The hidden fees and all you pay after buying a economy ticket ... charging for carry on , charging for insueing a boarding pass charging for water and soda for seats ..."
Cons: "Flight was at 6:30 I arrived at 5:00 and was waiting on line to check in and told me it was to late- even though I was on time ! I missed my cousins wedding and had to pay a fee of $100 just to jump on the next flight! I wasn't the only person either there was 7 more SPIRIT CUSTOMERS with the same issue- it seem like they were over booked and didn't care ! On top of that my small carryon bag was 100$ for round trip- that's insane! Spirit check in worker we're so rude and nasty and didn't care about their customers! Spirit airlines should be shut down- they steal and play with there customers! I DESERVE MY MONEY BACK OR THE FEE WAVED BECAUSE THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! My number is 6317454033 klyn thank you"
Pros: "flight was ok"
Cons: "no snacks. all to be paid separately-additionally"
Cons: "When we arrived to check in, we were immediately told we would not be making our connection, we would be staying in Florida for the night and there was absolutely no other solutions to be discussed and pushed to the side. When I tried to speak with the woman at the counter inside at the gate, she continued to talk on her cell phone, telling me "no, I do nothing for you." I finally said we need to figure out a way to negotiate something, can we please see if any other flights are available that would put us closer to South Carolina. After she reluctantly hung up her cell phone, she searched and said she had a flight to Atlanta but we would be "stuck" there on our own with no luggage and she couldn't do anything about that either. I said I would drive from Atlanta to South Carolina as I absolutely needed to be back the following morning. She said she would make the switch but whatever else happens is on us and not to call her again. She said we would have to retrieve our luggage in South Carolina the following afternoon as she couldn't get our luggage to the Atlanta plane so "don't even ask." I kindly asked her to put my luggage through to our first stop, Florida, we would handle it ourselves. We arrived in Florida, ran to baggage, collected our bags and had them transferred to the Atlanta plane, and ran back through security to make our flight. I can completely understand weather being an issue that calls for no reimbursement, however, the absolutely rudeness and lack of social skills and empathy of the spirit team was disheartening. We will not even attempt to spend money our money with spirit and see if we have a better outcome next time. I will not be recommending this airline and asked my friends to choose another airline for their trip so they would not be treated the same way."
Cons: "I was in Haiti flying back to Ft Lauderdale, arrive at the airport early, check in, go through security, have a seat to then find out my flight was delayed. Annoying but not the end of the world. A few minutes go by and an airport staff (not even a Spirit staff) comes over and says an announcement is being made and we need to go to the ticket counter. Get to the ticket counter and find out our flight is cancelled and there won't be another Spirit flight out of Haiti for two days!!! No effort was made to get us on a different airline, to refund our money instantly, to offer comps, not even to be empathetic. We all had to rush to other airlines and buy different flights home which cost an exorbitant amount. But the only other option was to stay stranded and homeless in Haiti. When I called Spirit later on that day, during a long layover, they gave me a hard time about refunding my money. It's been a week later and I still have not received all my money back. Never ever ever again will I fly Spirit."
Cons: "ONLY ONE CARRY ON PERMITTED, THAT IS NOT EVEN A CARRY ON, IT IS A 'PERSONAL BAG' THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN FIT A PAIR OF PANTS IN IT!!! I FELT ROBBED, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. MY LUGGAGE WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY FLIHTG TICKET, I MEAN I HAD TO PAY TWICE FOR CARRYING A PAIR OF PANTS AND A LAPTOP. I WILL MAKE SURE, NOT TO RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINE TO ANY OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND THEY KNOW. I FELT INSPIRED BY THIS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE TO CREATE A BLOG JUST TO PRVENT OTHER USERS FROM THE LACK OF INFORMATION REGARDING THIS COMPANY. In addition to that, in my three hours flight I had to pay for WATER and the seats were stock (meaning that none of the seats were adjustable)."
Pros: "Nothing I wouldn't even have given one star but I had tk"
Cons: "The flight was overall and awful experience. After purchasing tickets we find out we have to also pay for seats and luggage. So we do so. We come to the day of our flight and board our plane only to find out they had given our seats away. Apparently because we didn't have a dog with us it was only fair to give our seats to the people who did and did not book seats let alone together ! Which is absolutely ridiculous my trip should not have to be incovienced because of other people not planning their trip correctly. Then we get the worst seats on the plane after having to stand in the way of everyone for 30 minute like second class citizens while they wait to see where they can squeeze us in. After sitting down we got incredibly rude service from the staff on the plane. One of the attendants made it a point to say your welcome in a manor of being rude because we would not hand trash to her in another passengers face we made her go behind us which was in the long run easier for her. We never got a thank you or a sorry for ruining our trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight to anyone. The airline is an absolute joke."
Pros: "We could sit"
Cons: "One hour late, no explanation why. One member of staff very rude."
Pros: "We got there and back."
Cons: "Hidden charges everywhere, including paying the extra charge the day before the flight because my boyfriend's carry-on was the size Spirit's website said you had to pay extra for but no one checked at the airport. No free drinks or snacks on the flight, you have to pay for everything. It didn't seem any less expensive compared to other flights we've taken. Inconsistent rules: If your checked bag is over 40 lbs, you have to pay one extra price. If it's over 100 lbs, you pay another price (higher than the 40 lb price but not 2x as much). That would be okay if all airports managed this the same way. On the flight leaving home, they weighted both of our checked bags together, which were just under 100 lbs, which we were pleased about a slight cost saving. On the flight home, the woman at the desk weighted them separately and because they were both over 40 lbs but still not combined over 100, we ended up paying more than expected. Flight staff weren't friendly."
Cons: "This airline is serious about "no frills." I didn't realize this until check-in: my "cheap" ticket would get me absolutely nothing in terms of accomodations that most travelers depend on, like a carry-on bag. "No frills" policy aside - the check in process was HORRIBLE. I thought I could easily check in using my cell phone -- wrong. This website has no mobile version for cell phone users. I had to get my laptop to easily navigate the very slow website. Even when navigaing on the laptop, I had trouble navigating around between pages. I couldn't return to the previous page to de-select my chosen seats. It was also difficult to choose an option that didn't include PAYING for the seats."
Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "The nickle-diming of the fares,the long winded check in process, the most uncomfortable seats that I have EVER had the displeasure of occupying, the absence of tray tables or seat pockets and the fact that you had to pay for any beverage or cheap snacks. Not to mention the 2-1/2 hour delay with no explanation. I will never fly them again and will make sure everyone that I know will hear of my experiance along with all of my social media. I could have flown Delta cheaper in the long run and in the future will book with more reliable,up-front airlines!!"
Pros: "At first the cost, but I learned the hard way u get less than what u pay for"
Cons: "They charged me for every single bag, no such thing as a carry on with them... I thought they were going to charge me for my purse. Then NO type of curiosity snack,u pay for everything, then Spirit had about 5 international flights all land at about the same time, customs in ft Lauderdale was a mess, myself and about 250 other people missed our connecting flights n had no curiosity hotel, restaurant vouchers nothing, we had to sleep outside on the floor cause the next flight was at 8am n I was not missing that flight... So like I said NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "I literally hated everything from boarding to picking up my baggage"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats, nothing on the plane is free (soft drinks, snacks, everything costed money). We waited 35 minutes for our bags to be put on the belt.. The plane was old and decrepit, no tvs or any sort of entertainment. Our flight on the way home was cancelled thank god I bought flight insurance because spirit airlines is BS. I'm surprised they're still in business. Oh and I had to pay for my effing seats AND my baggage, including checked AND carry on bags. I'm never giving this airline my business anymore and I suggest all of you do the same!!!!"
Pros: "The cheap fare"
Cons: "Not having curbside check-in. Printing a boarding pass to join the line to speak with an agent to check-in luggage or baggage drop. The price for one piece of checked luggage on Spiritair.com went from $26 a week before the trip,$42 the day before the trip, and then $56 the day of the trip. Not to mention feeling bad for the customers who did not use the kiosk to print their boarding to passes to either have pay the $10 fee at the counter for a boarding pass or go to the Kiosk print out a boarding pass for free then to turnaround and have to rejoin the check-in line all over again if they have to do a baggage drop."
