I don't recall hearing any boarding announcements, people just started getting in line. Flight attendants were nice. A bit chatty with each other but helpful enough during our tarmac delay. Plane ride was very comfortable.

I don't recall hearing any boarding announcements, people just started getting in line. Flight attendants were nice. A bit chatty with each other but helpful enough during our tarmac delay. Plane ride was very comfortable.

Pros: "The crew in the plane was good and the fly was good."
Cons: "Boarding crew in front desk was not too friendly and could have used better words to communicate. Seen I was waiting for 20min before realizing that my gate was changed after check in. I approached the lady in the front desk to see if it was time to get my seats assigned. The lady in the front desk asked me in Spanish if I new English seen I was speaking Spanish to her I really don’t get why me knowing English had to do with me getting my seats. Also I went to gat 7 cuz that’s the gate I printed out 1hr before my fly but had to run to gate 3 cuz JetBlue changed gate seen 7am but couldn’t change it on the check in printouts/information (does that even make sense). Finally the answering service is a lottery you have to pray you get someone nice(and I hate to say this cuz I’m Puerto Rican but we can be so rude in customer service). You can tell from the accent a person has where they from and every time I get a Central American person they are so nice but when you get a Puerto Rican person they can be so rude and almost always you get nothing answer or done. This particular time before my flight I call to get my seat cuz when I flew to PR and almost always I call 24hr before my flight and get my seats assign free of charge. Not this time the customer rep answered and I tell her that I’m calling to get my seats and she answers you can do that when you check in, I tell her that I try but I’m being charged to get them and that in my previous flight the girl said to call 24hr before this flight and I could get them assigned free of charge (which was true cuz I had call for my fly going to PR and the girl also said it too) and the customer rep said well it probably cuz is not 24hr before yet. I told the rep yes it is I’m currently on my way to the airport but I want to get them before I get to the airport and the rep answers well you can do it when you get there (mind you I’ve been on hold waiting for almost 2hr that’s why I’m on my way to the airport cuz I usually do it 5-6hr before my flight but the answering service has been very busy) I tell her that I’m trying to save some time and get them before I get to the airport and the rep said well I can’t help you cuz we can’t give you seat on the phone you have to do it when you check in or wait until you get to the airport and they’ll give you your seats. It’s very frustrating that there’s people like this and they are from the same birthplace as you. So sad!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Syncing phone to flyfi entertainment"
Cons: "Great value!"
Pros: "Professional crew and new aircraft ."
Cons: "Delays on departure and arrival."
Pros: "The seat and leg room"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment and WiFi"
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "K, my seat couldn’t recline-both ways. Tv- audio system was messed up on the way back."
Pros: "Earache and headache"
Cons: "After being delayed going from Newark to Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood by an hr, I was then delayed TWICE going back! First time flying with JetBlue and I’ve never been more disappointed! Rather not have any legroom and make it to my destination ON TIME then to be an hour an a half late!"
Cons: "I bought two tickets together, adjoining seats but they gave us different boarding zones"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours both on the way there and back"
Cons: "You get what you pay for"
Cons: "My entertainment didn’t work on both flights , and WiFi was also “broken”"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The Crew was really friendly and seemed genuinely happy. The flight left on time and landed a few minutes early which is always a plus."
Cons: "With the plane fully booked I wound up having to gate check my carry on bag. This was not overly upsetting or anything terrible but it did cost me almost 20 extra minutes at baggage claim which resulted in my ride parking the car and then having to pay the parking fee."
Cons: "the crew was gruff, there were no outlets on the plane, the flight was delayed WELL BEYOND the 40 minutes it was announced to be (1.5+ hours delayed) which, had I known in advance, would've been useful information for rescheduling instead of just missing other travel arrangements on the other end."
Cons: "Old plane old seats old tv limited movies"
Pros: "The entire trip was comfortable I have no complaints"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours without reasoning. Wish it wasn’t delayed or that there was a reason. Otherwise, I love JetBlue!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Three delays. From takeoff time of 9:50 to 10:40 to 11:23 to 12:05. The ostensible delay was the incoming plane, which landed before 10 PM but - lo and behold, it was an international flight, surely something we didnt know when it took off - it went to gate 94 and had to be cleared blah blah blah. Each delay was predictable and JetBlue could easily have simply informed the passengers that we would be delayed 90-120 minutes rather than stringing us along with bite sized delays with insipid explanations. If there was really anything to JetBlues "award winning customer service" I would imagine they would have not insulted everyone's intelligence and been honest about the delays - which pushed arrival time to 2 am. I travel a good bit - three or four times a month - but cant remember the last time I flew JetBlue. JetBlue will certainly be right there with Frontier and Allegiant on airlines I'll seek to avoid. I dont know if it was just base level incompetence or if they dialed it up for the occasion, but it was on full display for the holidays."
Pros: "Nice leg room."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Plus, for this flight, I sat in row 8 but had to put my bag in the overhead compartment in row 18!!! Huge hassle to get back to my seat boarding, and a long wait to get it to get off!!!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight is so much delayed. The flight attendent seemed not happy about me with a two year old, which makes traveling with a kid so unpleasant. When my kid asked to go to restroom, it seemed that we’re troulesome. My mom missed the water when they gave out drinks, but they did not come back for us. When I went to the back to ask for my mom, they said they’re cleaning up already."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and great entertainment."
Cons: "Headphone jack had static"
Pros: "On time Great service Friendly staff Boarded quickly Landed 30 minutes early"
Pros: "Great flight attendant especially the gentleman!!! Super helpful even with a bunch of cranky New Jerseyians on a delayed flight!"
Cons: "Too hot! AC was going on and off??"
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfort once boarded and flight attendants warm welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours late. Was supposed to leave at 10pm and left at 1:13 am!! Customer service at jetblue kept lying about the aircrafts whereabouts and crew. They barely gave us updates, and at one point once everyone started asking questions and getting upset, they disappeared from the desk for an hour at least. The crew was late, there was no food, customer service had quite an inappropriate attitude, and tvs on the plane barely worked,"
Pros: "Cabin crew was warm, friendly, engaging, fun, yet professional and prompt with their service"
Pros: "The boarding crew was amazing, my boyfriend and I had different seats and they were able to arrange for us to sit next to each other. They were polite and very accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was terrible it seemed like this was the first time the pilot drove a plane. Even two pilots that were sitting were speaking about how terrible the flight was. And the flight attendants were acting like they had no home training, no manners/ professionalism and always had an attitude. These flight attendants were making jokes about a belligerent passenger instead of trying to help fix the situation. This was my first time ever taking a JetBlue flight and will sure be my last, especially when I paid 100 dollars more for this flight than what United was offering- I should of took United."
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Cons: "It is very difficult to contact the airline via phone. I had to wait almost an hour to speak to a representative. I was told I could call 36 hours before flight to get seat reservations. They should improve phone service. Otherwise flight was very good."
Cons: "The TVs were not working and shutting off sporadically."
Pros: "Friendly crew & pilot!"
Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."
Pros: "Even though we had a nonrefundable fare, when due to "Quinn" we couldn't get to our extra-early flight, they put us on the next flight, and actually got us seats together. Nice work!!"
Pros: "I have never seen an airline get the bags off the plane and onto the baggage carousel as quickly as JetBlue did on my flight!"
Cons: "Wished they had sandwiches for sale. It was a noon flight arriving to EWR at 3. That is time to eat lunch."
Pros: "I loved the roomy leather seats. The staff and crew were very helpful."
Cons: "New staff was working at the airport New building) and had some issues, but not a Jet Blue problem."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was late and did not leave till 11:50 pm"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick. Crew was very nice. Great leg room."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Great snacks."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was very old and gross. It really was making horrible noises when taking off and during times of the flight. It felt like it was going to rattle apart. *not jet blues fault but lady behind me kept pulling on my seat and I wanted to yell at her but she was old.."
Pros: "captain and crew were friendly and 'upbeat' with addressing passengers. glad there was small drink and snacks offered even if flight was very short. definitely keep the snacks! I was glad to have it as I hadn't eaten anything before traveling and needed it."
Pros: "The leg room is great and that they board from the rear to the front, prevents/reduces how much you're bumping into people to board."
Cons: "Width of the seat."
Cons: "Delay the fligh two times"
Pros: "The personnel was very courteous. All stewards, on both flights were vey polite and personable. The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The delay, because of a defect in the aircraft. But I was on the second row and I was able to see how attentive the captain was and how he wanted to make sure it was safe to fly as we were."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Free upgraded seat"

It was so smooth…it was so nice to hsve no issues flying. This was the first time in a while that everything was effortless Thank you

There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.

Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…

My lay over was changed so that my flight was boarding on the opposite side of the airport at the same minute I was walking through the gangway getting off my first flight. I took screen shots of the times and it was alarming to say the least.

Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "just an old plane. still had ashtrays in it. but overall ok because arrived safely and professionalism of staff was quite commendable"
Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great especially Fawn. Best flight attendant I’ve had."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Late flight due to ground hold EWR. Two screaming kids immediately behind me."
Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."

Cons: "Need vegetarian meal in first class"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable, plan wasn’t too full"
Cons: "No charging port for cellphone."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "I liked the flight attendant in first class. Unfortunately I was not in first class"
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the obese old man (I, too, am an obese old woman) as I saw it toward some of my cabin mates."
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Pros: "The staff was efficient and kind"
Cons: "The plane was late for weather reasons and they overbooked the flight they had to offer $400 for next flight wasn’t until the next morning.. no entertainment system on plane"
Cons: "No LCD screen for entertainment."

Pros: "Boarding"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Coffee was bad and was luke warm!! It was very cold in the cabin and then really warm."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay and inoperative Sattelite TV"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."
Pros: "the inflight service and the quality of food was outstanding."
Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."
Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "Delta is focused on customer service, especially in the business class. Great airline. Love the crew attitude."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"
Pros: "There should atleast one checked luggage"
Cons: "Too expensive and baggage charge is additional which does not make any sense"

Aa es la mejor aerolínea . La atención es excelente y eficientes

The person sitting next to me took my storage space under the seat but other than that was pretty good service and the food was not terrible.

On-time.

Missed my connection due to poor weather disrupting AAs entire fleet. Rebooked my flights twice and was still unable to make it home. No offer of hotel compensation despite me being stranded overnight in Houston. Nothing really to do about it- just a bad couple of days to travel. I wish they were a little better at letting us know about delays in good time, as it would have made a difference to my planning.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid additional money for 3 seats together, when I got to check in I was told I cannot do that. I had to sit separately from my children. I was sat next to an obese man. I kindly asked the flight attendant if I can take empty seat across the aisle from me and was told no without a reason. I thought we were doing social distance ,but apparently not. As for there earlier claim of no 3 seats available next to each other .. it was obviously a lie because the seats just across from me where empty. I hope not to fly on American Airlines again."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "On time, good boarding process."
Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing I was traveling with my to kids and I ask if they can please provide me the setting for us together and they told us they can’t do it. I end up doing it by my self this is not good and didn’t get the help I need"
Cons: "Overall I didn’t like this flight at all"
Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"
Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"
Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."
Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"
Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "The flight attendant closed all the overhead bin doors...even though there was room in them and she INDICATED as much...so why did she close them DURING the ongoing boarding process. Very strange and very dumb!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "I decided to travel First Class from Houston TX and that was the greatest choice I ever made. IAH requires travelers to arrive 2-3 hrs early due to traffic or weather conditions. I checked in at 2 pm and waited for my 5 pm boarding call. First class was amazing! I stored my belongings without any issues. I sipped wine and dined on pasta and watched the movie Father Figures with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms. The stewardess was polite and friendly. The food was enjoyable and the passengers were friendly. The bathroom as also immaculate, I was impressed."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."
Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice trip was uneventful."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Snacks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Never flying American again."
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."

My seat was the last witch I didn’t mind, but the crew wasn’t so good

good - very good .. baggage - slow but ok. flight left an hour late and was pokey once it arrival getting to the gate. (could have been worse) WiFi - mediocre Check-in, boarding excellent - plane good, all else - except food - very good to exp

Pros: "I’m handicapped and requested wheelchair assistance when I booked flight. Not once was it ready I had to ask for it at every leg of trip, going and returning. Took morning flight home to connection and when landed was told that flight was cancelled and rebooked my on another flight which was fine but didn’t have the seat available that was originally designated and the woman at customer service didn’t care. New flight delayed 3 times and I ended up being in Newark for 9 hours and got a total of $30 in vouchers, had anyone that gives these vouchers out bought anything in an airport before? And the $30 I did get I had to beg for as well. No more united for me thanks."
Cons: "Wifi only worked for a half hour, we paid extra to bring carry on bag, and the're was no space in the plane, had to send it in the cargo."
Cons: "The remote in the arm rest is the worst part of the aircraft. You can never rest your arm because you will always hit the remote changing the channel or turning the screen on."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great (at least ours)."
Cons: "Pilot slammed us down onto the tarmack when we arrived Newark."
Pros: "Crew let me sleep. And was very pleasant and professional. A positive and upbeat attitude goes a long way!"
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Crew was kind and apologetic after 2.5 hour delay, provided water before take off and tried to be accommodating."
Cons: "The change of planes forced our family of 4 to all be separated. In order to care for my ill husband I had to accept a seat change to a middle seat. Our original seats put us in seats 18 A B. My daughter was ticketed in row 40 and my son in front. We paid for economy plus, 1 out of 4 didn't get it!"
Pros: "Lounge"
Cons: "Delayed flight which kept pushing back for more then 5 hours. Got booked on the next flight got middle seat. Flight attendant was rude and short with people. Not very personable. Plane was so hot everyone was sweating."
Cons: "It was hot and sweaty inside the aircraft for the whole trip. Crew were not helpful when asked about it. Drinks were served much later after take off, despite making us wait a long time in the runway. TV was a pain to operate."
Pros: "Upgraded cabin"
Cons: "Bad actitude of personal and crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No assistance at all for handicap person, try to ask for help and was told grab a wheelchair and have your family push you or wait till 530 which my flight would be boardiat that time."
Pros: "No one booked the aisle seat and for the first time in 10 years I flew comfortably!"
Cons: "We walked from one end of terminal C to the other after already having the gate changed twice!"
Pros: "Our flight was 30 minutes late leaving which gave me a too quick layover. Newark Airport website doesn't advertise the bus terminals, just the trans (which means security) - but the flight attendants were so kind and told me exactly where to go to do the bus so I didn't miss my flight, although it was close!"
Pros: "Easy to change the flight, people was nice, organization was great."
Pros: "People were courteous."
Cons: "Long time waiting to be called by group number. The direct tv system was not working well, needed rebooting. Uncomfortable seating arrangements, should be allowed to sit in empty seats without paying extra."
Pros: "The Houston United Gate for this flight was very nice. The staff were very professional and courteous."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Cons: "Having a 3,5 hour delay."
Cons: "Last minute terminal change AFTER having gone through security at another terminal made the trip quite stressful."
Pros: "Kayak helps find a really great price. It makes the process efficient and easy to use."
Pros: "The plane was more technologically advanced than others."
Cons: "There was a delay in takeoffs and landing."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Little tight in economy plus for an extra 76 dollars. Other than that good flight good crew and the entertainment worked on this one finally."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi in flight."
Cons: "Rude and unhelpful staff. Delayed also which made my travel bad."
Cons: "Not enough room for my carry on and they checked it. I did not have a secure bag to check with lock and was upset."
Pros: "Friendly service. Flight arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "No personal in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "More space than the previous plane. Slept 90% of the flight"
Cons: "The tvs didn't work in flight"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. The cockpit crew did an excellent job from start to finish. Great landing in Newark."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked by at least 10. The arriving flight delayed departure 45 minutes which almost caused a missed connection. The original time between connection was 90 minutes. By the time the first flight arrived, the second was already boarding."
Pros: "Puntual y eficiente"
Cons: "Bad never want to travel with united again..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "It was pretty cheap"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the pilot wasn't there. I feel like this sort of thing always happens with united. When I went to ask for help about my connecting flights I was treated like I was the one inconveniencing them. And the response I got was there's nothing we can do if you miss your connecting flight the only one going out today is at 10 pm but it's completely full already. I feel like it was the worst customer service and while I realize the lady I spoke to was probably not the one responsible for the captain being Mia she could have been more kind and more helpful by 100%"
Pros: "Economy Plus seating was awesome"
Pros: "I liked that you guys had free movies. Good ones at that."
Cons: "I didn't like the snacks."
Pros: "Entertaiment. Individual monitors with complimentary headphones and a great selection of movies and tv programs"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours. No explanation from the united customer service counter. Spend the whole day in the airport (with all expenses covered by me not even a coupon for a coffee? ) The boarding process once the airplane arrive was terrible, zero organization! It took forever."
Pros: "Relatively cheap flight... Key word is "relatively""
Cons: "You are literally only paying for a seat on a plane on this airline nowadays... No food, 1 drink + 1 water refill, cramped space, no checked bags... Should I continue? And come on: YOU NOW HAVE TO PAY FOR IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT (if there is any at all)?!?!? This is just getting ridiculous."
Pros: "The gate was changed on flight to Houston twice in the last 12 hours, and gate was changed on flight back to Newark twice in the last 4 hours, making me late for boarding both flights. Note: I had no info available by phone or internet(had to rely on boards), and I was being transported by wheelchair."
Pros: "Arrived a bit early"
Cons: "Having to pay for my one checked bag, never before on an international flight!!!"
Cons: "Barely any leg room for even someone who is 5'2"."
Pros: "Nothing This was the worst flight I had in all the years I am flying with United"
Pros: "I had a great flight"
Cons: "The normal when you land and getting off flight"
Pros: "I liked that I slept the whole way."
Cons: "That united barely serves any snacks, need something besides that wafer that won't even make a dent in hunger."
Cons: "The service was good, and the food tasty, but not very much. Also, the guy next to me couldn't sit still, but that is not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "One of the best flight I ever had"
Pros: "Courteous representatives."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a few minutes early. New snack was delicious."
Pros: "I am grateful to have landed safely and off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was hot. Narrow seating. No options to watch movies/tv. Overpriced snacks. The flight crew did not ask noisy passengers to quiet down."

Weight allowed for check in and the charges for carry on and check in bags should align with other carriers

Cons: "Seats are very tight No space Will be my last trip on spirit"
Pros: "Nothing, I am so disappointed, my reason for going to New Jersey was to say goodbye to my Father, the doctors at the VA Hospital Brooklyn told me that my Father is dying. I am here in Houston Texas while my Father is dying in Brooklyn, N.Y. My heart is hurting."
Cons: "They could have paged me, not all employees speak clearly. If you really care, call me right now for O am sitting in the airport going nowhere. Theresa Matthews (832) 891-9022"
Cons: "Said I missed my flight I was there 30 minutes early wanted me to play an additional 99 dollars to get another flight when my plane hadn’t left the ground yet"
Pros: "Everything was good for me"
Cons: "The luggage fee , 50$ each way only carry bag , maby too all the local travel the customer paid I don’t know it’s my first to travel inside , before was only internatinal travel"
Pros: "There are very punctual. The pilot did a great job, it was a very smooth ride."
Cons: "One of the Flight attendants was very rude and condescending to passengers. Not very pleased with having to pay for your carry on."
Cons: "I think forcing people to pay for water crosses the line into a sick alternate reality. Some of the other buying requirements were strange but manageable, but having to pay for water on an airplane is inhumane. I will avoid spirit airlines"
Pros: "I have flown with Spirit multiple times and I consistently have a fantastic experience. I sincerely have no complaints."
Pros: "Cheapyo"
Cons: "You get what you pay for. Spirit airlines delayed the flight first due to weather, they ran out of de-icing fuel, then next due to a disruptive woman. Spirit airlines didn’t keep us very informed. They kept saying we would wait a lot less time than we actually did. They did nothing to comp anyone not even give passengers complementary drinks. We sat on the plane for a total of 5 hours and ended up missing an entire day of our quick 48 hour getaway. We had to deboard twice and were lied to several times. I understand weather can be an excuse but how Spirit handled the situation was absurd and should how they don’t care about their customers at all. To top it all off, the seats are curved in the most uncomfortable way so sitting in them for so long made my body achy. Never again Spirit"
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit is trash"
Pros: "Easy to board. Everything is piecemeal and expensive so if you get the perks the. You might as well flown with another airline that includes those items. I knew that going in though so..."
Cons: "Cramped, not very comfortable."
Pros: "on time cheap"
Cons: "the carry on policy is extremely expensive"
Pros: "safety"
Cons: "My seat was horrible...but no complaints i got there safely"
Pros: "for 30 minutes he was unable to register his ticket."
Cons: "I hate spirit airlines. Crew was rude and plane was super uncomfortable and they charge you for a cup of water!"
Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Flight got canceled, next flight was 48 hours later and They implied that the hotel was my problem, so we just booked Another airline. The %50 of my airline ticket fee for A checked bag wasn't helpful either. Placed on hold for almost two hours !!' Pay the extra money for a diff airline"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I missed an important board exam because this retarded airlines couldn't get a plane for 24 hours, they cancelled my flight 3 times 30 minutes before the flight really bad"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay on a 6:30am flight got three hours of sleep just to get up and sit at the airport for 4 hours. Flight attendants were rude and unapologetic about the delay"
Cons: "Never got into the flight"
Pros: "Nothing !!!! bcos you will pay double at the end on what you think you're saving"
Cons: "Charges on luggages is outrageous"
Cons: "Customer service was THE WORST! I was in a large group of people that was stopped at TSA and made to re-screen by going through the whole process over again with addition of a sniff by the drug dog. This caused me to RUN to the gate and arrive just as the door shut. Even though I could see the plane sitting there, they would make no accommodations. I missed by flight and had to be booked on another flight leaving 6 hours later."
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "When we landed at the Newark Airport."
Cons: "Hidden costs for the cheapest and most uncomfortable plane/flight I've ever flown on-not to mention that when we boarded the plane there was no pilot or co-pilot. What airline does that? Pilots did not arrive until about 30-40minutes after scheduled departure time. I will never fly with Spirit again and will not recommend to family or friends."
Pros: "the temperature was good"
Cons: "would like options for blankets"
Pros: "I liked being charged $59 for an extra carry on which held my medical breathing device... NOT. Plus, they make you use a credit card, which if you don't have one, they make you purchase a temporary credit card with one of their machines, but they don't allow you to use exact change. So, you end up holding a "temporary" credit card with like $5.99 in it that you'll never use."
Cons: "Don't fly Spirit unless you have the time to completely research and GAME their DECEPTIVE and EVILSpiritED pricing tactics. One GAME HINT: wear clothes with tons of pockets (like cargo pants) and pack your clothes in the pockets."
Pros: "we had a safe flight, no major issues, and were able to get off the plane quickly."
Cons: "I had to pay $97 to check my bag...kinda defeats the purpose of booking a cheap flight. This was by far the smallest seating space I've ever had...I'm 5'9 so normally I don't have an issue with this but my knees were about an inch away from the seat in front of me and I had no space to move around. The headrests were hard as a rock, and I could feel a metal bar in the middle of the seat poking out at my back. The seats don't go back, there was no entertainment whatsoever, not even a magazine to read. The main lights were left on during the 4.5 hour nighttime flight. There was not even a complimentary cup of water...$3 for water. It was also freezing in the plane and there was a 2 hour delay for no apparent reason. Look up the fees they charge for everything before you book with Spirit."
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Baggage Fees"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything- spirit airlines is terrible"
Pros: "The plane seemed new"
Cons: "Paying for every single thing - including carry on bag and water. The low price no longer remains low when charged for everything. Flight crew and other positions didn't have good customer service either."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "That they were not very specific with their baggage allowed. And I was charged a lot more for a single carry on."
Cons: "More hidden fees than I could count. Ended up spending just as much on my checked bags, carry on, and seat as I did for the ticket. Disgraceful!"
Pros: "Would have liked more information at gate about delay"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they cancelled my flights and didn't offer any help"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled at 12 pm because of staffing issues and it's so hard to get anyone on the phone about reservations."
Cons: "This was our first experience with Spirit Airlines. They cancelled the flight about an hour or two before takeoff and it was the last flight for the day. We almost missed our daughters graduation because of this so we got a refund and rebooked on another airline. We won't be flying Spirit Airlines ever again."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Small planes. No leg room. We had to pay $40 for checked in bag but it only allows 40lbs v. 50lbs other airlines allow."
Cons: "I felt a ripp off affter when I found oute that I hadto pay 165.00 for bagage in order tu fly my furst reaction is what gotme here my guife bought the tikets I will never use this company again and I have share the story to all may friends relatives family members after surbey the c e o owners protocols make mi feel that I must stay away from this institution this is very harmful to any human I just want to be treated the way you treat your loved ones becouse we R humans, and humans never get close to people that confuses lies and hurts them ."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes were alarmingly old. They were not comfortable and while I'm sure they do safety checks, there was so much flexing, rattling, and groaning that it did not feel safe. On our way out of the country - they did not have pens to fill out the customs forms, and told us that if we made a mistake we were out of luck because they didn't have extras. It should be more clear (before purchase) that the price for any bag (even a carry on) is so high - it raises the price of the ticket $100 which is significant On arrival in US they NEVER told us what carousel our bags were on, it was not posted, even on the carousel... it took us forever to find them"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was getting off that plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for THREE hours. They sat me in the very back row by the wall, where there's no window. I was literally sitting in the corner. The flight attendant was a funny gay guy who spent more time flirting with a passenger on the plane than anything else. He made it apparent he didn't wanna be bothered by anyone else. The flight was extremely turbulent the entire way. Which made it hard to even nap after boarding 3 hours late. I couldn't look out a window...I couldn't nap...I couldn't read because of the turbulence...literally the only thing I could do was stare at the seat in front of me for 2+ hours. They didn't even offer complimentary snacks or beverages, we had to pay to eat or drink. SHITTY AND UNCOMFORTABLE! But at least nobody dragged me off the plane, so that's a plus."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience!!! Stinky way to end a vacation!! From the moment we entered the terminal, SPIRIT handled everything poorly. They had 5 agents working to handle 5-6hundred passengers. There was only one agent walking the floor answering questions. He was nice enough to me but in his frustration, he was very rude to other passengers. People were getting nervous that their planes were boarding and they still hadn't checked their bags. This caused people to try and cut in front of other people in line and of course those passengers became angry. After finally getting through that mess, we got to our gate in a different terminal (which was also confusing because our boarding pass said terminal 3 which we went to first only to find out that we needed to go to Terminal 4 to check in and then walk over to terminal 3 to board). Once we boarded the plane they told us that the computer system was down so they could not put in their flight planes so they let us off the plane. We re-boarded the plane and finally landed home around 2:00 in the morning. By the time we got our luggage and drove home (20 minutes) it was 3:15. Overall Stinky!!!!!"
Pros: "Cheap ticket purchase price"
Cons: "I was charged for carrying on my roll on bag because of its shape. While my brother on the same flight carried on an even larger backpack.But, it was considered a personal item. Also because we did not wish to pay even more to pick our seats, we were assigned the last row on the plane where the fuselage begins to taper towards the tail of a plane. Therefore it there was not nearly enough shoulder room for my brother and me. Overall the discomfort, lackadaisical staff, and shrewd penny-pinching policies insured that I will never fly Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Started off OK but then we quickly downhill flight was canceled due to fog in San Diego so I never made it onto the plane."
Cons: "Weather delay with fog in San Diego. Not Spirit's fault but they delayed for an hour and a half and then cancel the flight. As they canceled the flight they came around with cards with a number to call to rebook or change your itinerary. I called the number on the car rather than getting right in line at the desk. By the time I got through on the phone it would have been 10 to 15 minutes. They told me that since I was halfway through my return trip they couldn't do anything over the phone. So then I had to get in line and wait. I was the last person served. They offered me a flight to days later at the same time 9:45 PM that was unacceptable so I ask for something else and he somehow turned out they had a Houston Chicago San Diego flight that leaves tomorrow morning at seven. Very disappointed in the handling by the rebooking staff on the phone the gate agents were very friendly but very overworked and stressed. Service manager was there and he put me on a call back on the phone but that didn't help either. Not flying spirit again anytime soon."
Pros: "Flight attendants on both flights were very nice."
Cons: "Shortcut security was not honored flying to fll. Was unaware of the so calley "bare fare". I paid almost $300 for my flight just to find out the night before that I had to pay an additional $142 for my seats and bags. Water wasn't even free! Flight was late departing but arrived On time. On the way home I got to the airport 2.5hrs early even though I checked in the night before just to be put in a long line because spirit appeared under staffed. The Spirit agent took our long coiled line and put us outside in a straight line...in the cold and rain! While in line, a Spirit passenger was visibly and audibly crying. A few other passengers including myself tried to help her. We informed a near by agent who also saw the crying woman and told us "it's not my job. She's not my concern." The lack of care and customer service was ridiculous. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will encourage friends and family to boycott them as well."
Cons: "Getting our boarding pass to print was a nightmare. I kept getting password invalid. I was told I would be sent an e-mail to reset my password. NOT! made that request 6 times before I waited 30 minutes to get a rep on the phone. Was told I had to sign up to be a Free Spirit Member to get my boarding pass. No where does it say that that is what you had to do . The rep asked if I had booked through them? I told I booked through Kayak and he gave me attitude. Kind of huffed and I thought he mumbled "you get what you pay for" So I signed up and got our boarding pass. Coming back AGAIN we couldn't get our boarding pass. The rep at Cabana Bay got a Spirit rep on the phone I told her I was a Free Spirit Member and I gave her my member # and she me told I didn't exist in the system, but she would send me an e-mail to change my password Of course that didn't come through. I put Sara, from the front desk, back on the phone and between her and the rep we got our boarding pass. We started our vacation upset and aggregated. Ended it the same way."
Cons: "After years of hearing negative things about Spirit, I never could relate because my experiences had always been great. However, this last experience was the worst. I was on a 7 day cruise through Carnival that got delayed an entire day with docking to return home, due to heavy fog, and Spirit was not understanding nor did they accommodate me, and made me purchase a one-way flight back home after I had already purchased a round trip flight. The one-way flight was more than my round trip. This was a huge inconvenience. Other airlines honored the boats delay and let their customers fly back home with no extra charge."
Pros: "There was nothing about this experience that was handled well or in any way comfortable."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by more than 4 hours. Had I been notified of this, I wouldn't have had to get up at 3:30 AM to get to the airport in time. I signed up for the email notifications and am a Free Spirit member- none came. Second of all, the airport was in complete chaos. In fairness, there had been a shooting in terminal 2 the day before, but there was no organization, no one to ask about which line to stand in, etc.. A couple of employees with megaphones would have gone a long way. Third of all, the gate agent boarding the plane was the definition of rudeness and snarkiness. Fourth of all, while boarding the plane, and elderly man became unresponsive and had to be wheeled off the plane. Again, total chaos, no announcements. The man fell out of the wheelchair and expired on the jet bridge- ok, beyond Spirit's control, but the way the gate agent and flight attendants handled this was disgraceful. Fifth of all, we all had to disembark, then line up to board again, then they cancelled out flight. 6th- we were instructed to exit the terminal and rebook at the front desk. People ran like the starting gun had shot at the olympics. When I exited the terminal, we were met with a wall of people- total chaos- no one directing traffic- agents yelling at us- we were finally directed to line up outside in the hot sun (wearing black winter clothes) and proceeded to wait for over 4 hours. I didn't even get close to the desk- I booked a return flight on American for $430 out of Miami because people who were able to reach Spirit via phone (I was on hold for over 2 hours before my phone died) were saying they couldn't get us back to NYC until next week. I have tried unsuccessfully to reach Spirit to refund the money for my carry on bag."
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
Pros: "One customer service woman at the airport."
Cons: "Literally everything else. I could not have had a worse experience. Spirit's online system changed unexplainedly changed our address without our knowledge, therefore preventing me from checking my fiance in online. I spent too much time attempting to talk to them about it over the phone, and ended up being late to leave for the airport. On the drive there, I was able to get ahold of a customer service representative on the phone who purchased my fiance's luggage, seat, and checked her in over the phone. We arrived 43 minutes before the flight, and were turned away while attempting to check in her bag, being told that she was not checked in for the flight, and it was now past the mandatory 45 minutes before flight time and would not allow her aboard. I spent the next 2 hours arguing with customer service, where they accused me of lying and said that they don't even offer to check in people over the phone. I could go on, but it was absolutely awful, and we weren't able to be placed on a flight until the next morning."
Pros: "It got me from Houston to Las Vegas without killing me . . . that's about it."
Cons: "From the booking process 5 months ago trying to fix an incorrect date I put in (had to cancel and rebook) English was not understandable. To their online problems. Couldn't get online to save paying an outrageous fee for luggage and online booking. Met with the standard go online and complain ? Rude unresponsive employees that garble off phrases so often and so fast as to be incomprehensible. Misinformation by the flight crew as to where the luggage would be. Smallest cramped seats I've ever been in. NEVER AGAIN. (this is not like me, I'm usually very easy going)"
Pros: "Crew was nice, friendly, and funny. 3 stars is because there is no actual service unless you flag them down to pay for things."
Cons: "WARNING: MUST PAY FOR CARRY ON BEFORE GATE. Spirit wants $45 for a carry on bag, and apparently $100 if you don't realize it before you get to the gate. I don't even know how much for checking one. So unless all you have is a handbag, add $90 per bag to the cheap looking price. Seat reservations are janky and can also cost you money. There's no app to check in, reserve seats, or view your flight, and their website has a terrible mobile user interface. The crew doesn't even ask if you want something, they just walk up and down with trash bags. That said, they were polite, professional and friendly. I guess you flag them down if you want to spend a bunch of money on Chex Mix and a soda or expensive beer. You have to pay to even get water or peanuts. There is no entertainment. The seats do not recline. If you have never flown Spirit, you're probably thinking "all that is too ridiculous to be true," which is what I thought when my Uber driver started warning me. Nothing above is exaggerated, just the facts. Never again."
