Pros: "The crew was great and professional."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was perfect from the boarding process to disembarking."
Cons: "The headphone jack.was worn out, so the audio was sporadic."
Pros: "Very professional flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed, waiting on pilots to arrive. The. We sat on the runway for a long time without leaving as well. Crew also made us gate check bags when there was still plenty of overhead space left on plane."
Pros: "More room seats"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Horrible communication during flight delays and pilot timing out. Sat at the gate for hours with no communication."
Cons: "My entertainment system sound was poor"
Cons: "Two hour delay between boarding and then sitting on the runway."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable with enough leg room."
Cons: "My husband's display controls didn't work. We didn't ask for help as he planned to read anyway."
Pros: "Crew nice, nice movie , check in process smooth"
Cons: "Crew did a great job. Flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy seats."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "Tv could have worked better"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy but that may have been because it was a small plane."
Cons: "After landing we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours! This is unacceptable. The gate was occupied by a plane having mechanical issues. This was the second time I have flown JetBlue and the second time I’ve had to sit on the tarmac for hours because of some sort of issue. Never flying JetBlue again if I can help it."
Cons: "We waited at least 8 hours in the delay and I wasn’t texted early enough to plan ahead. We waited in the airport and then we waited on the turnpike before take-off."
Pros: "LOTS OF LEGROOM"
Cons: "They have a habit of not being ontime"
Pros: "One of the crew member was very humorous and entertaining"
Cons: "Crew member and pilot announcements"
Cons: "Asked the stewardess to have a blanket and water she had not brought. Service was bad ."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "The early boarding for families with strollers and the comfortable seats with a little more space than other airlines."
Pros: "Leg room was great. Free WiFi and TVs made the flight very accommodating."
Cons: "Crying baby. Not the airlines fault."
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. Engine as no flight permission problems. My seat was hard."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Pros: "Professionalism, on time, great customer service, courtesy always"
Pros: "Flight was excellent"
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "Almost a 9 hour ordeal. 4 hour delay because of weather for flight because one crew that was supposed to take our flight had “timed out.” Didn’t take off til after 1am. Finally landed and sat on plane because a plane at our gate was “disabled.” It’s 4:33am, I’ve been off the plane for half an hour, no baggage coming out of the carousel yet and no sign of this absolutely horrific experience ending anytime soon."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Cons: "I was delayed half a dozen times, only to be canceled. Rescheduled on a flight that was scheduled to depart two hours before the original flight. Rescheduled after an hour hold. That flight was delayed the following day. Was diverted to Baltimore only to find out only some of us on our flight are getting out by a rude agent. Then no information at all. Had to run to catch an amtrak. Later found out if I stayed I would have stayed another 13 hours in Baltimore. Missed work and had no one home to take care of my family. Oh, and travel insurance will not cover anything. The plane itself was falling apart. Seat was broken and dirty. Everyones lights were broken and it smelled."
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Limited snack choices"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Good flight. The staff was nice, especially Chris. Nice to see complimentary beverages and snacks still offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "Seats are terrible, and getting worse every year, but thats coach on all airlines not just Jet Blue. Hard armrests, weirdly shaped bucket seats which are appalling in any other position than straight up with 90 degree waist bend. Thats not how humans sit for extended periods of time. A 5 degree recline is not a recline; its a joke. At least the tray table was bigger than my phablet, unlike Spirit where the napkins look like tablecloths on these ‘tables’. Overall, it is better than the cheapest airlines."
Pros: "We landed on time, flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "My tv in front of me didn’t work properly. It had zero touch screen functionality, it didn’t scroll through the movie list properly (kept jumping back to the top) so I couldn’t watch anything. Also the boarding process was a complete mess and we were delayed."
Cons: "Food is very unhealthy and should include more"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Pros: "Changed to 3 hour earlier flight WITHOUT extra "change fee". It was FREE !! Enjoyed in flight TV with FREE drinks and snacks. As United goes backwards in customer service and costs, JetBlue leaps forward. Good work JetBlue."
Cons: "More options in snack boxes and/or food items"
Cons: "My flight got delayed 4 times"
Pros: "Solid crew, comfortable flight, free tv and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "Everything Entertainment Early landing"
Pros: "Jetblue left on time from JFK"
Pros: "When I sat into my comfortable seat with its amazing leg room, I asked the woman next to me if she had flown Jet Blue previously. She replied that it is now her favorite airline. At the end of the trip I agreed that it is a distinctly different and great airline. My complaint is that I have to travel from NE Wisconsin to Chicago in order to use Jet Blue. When are you coming to MKE? The way the food and drink orders were handled worked well, and the selections were amazing! Needless to say, the media offered was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew did a good job, but one of the female staff seemed stressed. I hope she was able to get some relief and rest."
Pros: "great everything!"
Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "Quick board, quick flight and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Someone to rub my feet, but that’s wishful thinking."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "For me the boarding was of fast"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No food was served"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early"
Cons: "Asked a crèw member to put my bag in the overhead , didn't like his attitude,also asked him for a soda, didn't get it, got it from another attendant"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "The attitude of the employees."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was quite smooth."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "The crew was really fantastic the service was very good."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "Great first class cabin crew."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle and the plane was extremely uncomfortable for a 4 hour flight"
Cons: "British Airways flight was carried by American Airlines. Planes were late, boarded one plane from the tarmac with no explanation, gate was changed 5 times without announcements. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable and the food was great for airplane food."
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Cons: "Very upset with baggage handling and charges for baggage on an international flight. I bought an economy fair but was not well informed about fact that charges for baggage would be made. I ended up paying more in fees for baggage and seats than if I had purchased a "regular" coach fare or had flown on another airline. Will do this next time. Also, both my pieces of luggage were damaged and not properly latched following opening by security."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and expected to delay further and the attendants put me on another flight to get there before my connecting flight."
Cons: "My bags never made it and when I arrived, I was told that one of my bags was still at my departure airport and the other wasn’t scanned."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the continued update on my flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but no fault of American."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Cons: "I missed all my flights and my bags because of a stupid delay made by the airline."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "The flight was not filled with passengers, so a number of passengers had a whole row of three seats in the Dreamliner to sleep on."
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "Great aircraft, UK staff kindly assisted to get us family seating near each other"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Cons: "The crew waited until we where onboard about to leave to defrost the wings, making us 50 min late. Half of the plane missed their connecting flights"
Pros: "Easy and smooth flight."
Pros: "No complaints. A smooth flight. Met my expectations. Would fly American again."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "Crew fantastic , food good"
Cons: "Limited seat space"
Pros: "Seats were more spacious and a representative was great about helping us find seats close together for a party of 4 that had originally been split up."
Cons: "No sort of real line before boarding. Other customers were getting in who had numbers that were not yet called. Staff at the inside gatealso gave very short answers."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Nothing it did not exist"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me"
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Pros: "Staff members went above and beyond expections; accomodating some seating reassignment requests, charging customer phones, and being very responsive overall."
Cons: "It would have been nice to at least have USB chargers in economy class."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "I thought the crew was friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane did not have personal TVs, which means they showed a handful of bad movies overhead and on a nine hour flight, it's hard not to be able to pick a movie or pick a TV show."
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
Pros: "The air stewardess was friendly and courteous, the meal were tasty and sufficient."
Cons: "The flight came in early but we had to wait over thirty minutes for luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "They had a movie screen with movies available. Even though the trip was short, it was nice to have that option."
Pros: "Great crew support & well above the typical airline food."
Cons: "USB charging ports would been nice"
Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"
Cons: "It’s mainly all good but there are never really snacks on air canada other than pretzels (and today not even that). They are still my fave airline but they could step that up a bit!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly crew."
Cons: "Almost two hours delay each way."
Pros: "55 minutes before flight, after getting boarding pass they refused to accept baggage. Had to overnight at my expense."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, but only at my seat, after rebooting from electrical problem."
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Flight delayed initially due to weather. When weather cleared flight delayed half hour because they could not find the pilot."
Pros: "Boarding was good, but pretty bad flights overall. One of the worst I ever had in my life! The plane seats we had had so little cushion that is was painful to sit. My husband was avoiding touching the back by leaning on his arms and he is great shape, don't think elderly and in pain by himself...Entertainment simply non-existent and food as well... The crew were borderline okay. Plus the plane drove for about 20 minutes at Montreal and about 20 in Chicago before we left and after we landed...Let's say I saw parts of O'Hare in Chicago, I didn't even know existed!!!"
Cons: "Pretty bad flights overall. One of the worst I ever had in my life! The plane seats we had had so little cushion that is was painful to sit.

Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if I needed headphones and I said yes,her reply : I need a credit card"
Pros: "Again, ground crew took good care of me and saw me to the baggage pick-up. You have lovely staff."
Cons: "They didn't have enough room for my carry on so they forced me to hold it on my lap for the entire flight. When I asked if it could be checked, they said no. This was a big safety hazard which shouldn't be overlooked."
Pros: "The courtesy of the attendants. Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The leg room."
Cons: "Four hours of delays."
Pros: "Crew was great and offered a second drink service, which seems rare these days. Food was very tasty, even if I had to buy it myself."
Cons: "We started boarding too early and the service crew had not yet completed their tasks. Thus, we were standing in the jetway, not moving, for about ten minutes."
Cons: "Kiosk option wasn't supporting the baggage check policy, resulting in passenger were unable to print baggage tag and had to wait in long line over 1.5 hrs to check bag with staff. They also understated. It took me over 2 hrs to get throug check in process, not counting 45mins + through security check and custom. I had asked staff to expedite the process. C my flight was boarding. Staff could care or less and walked away. I had to run to my gate and almost miss my flight. Also, I was told that 1st checked bag was complimentary as this is a express aircraft. Staff wouldn't honor that. Come to find out as I entered the aircraft that they made many passengers do the complimentary gate check anyway. Rude and unaccompdating staff."
Cons: "The boarding lady on lines 3-5 was rude with several people."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "The entertainment offerings were good. One crew member in particular helped us get back on the flight after we had been booted."
Cons: "Gate agent for Air Canada completely unhelpful about getting us to our connecting flight. Then the Toronto Airport was just HORRIBLE: all along the way, we had to go through security again to get to the American side, and there was no warning that the drinks we had bought *at the Dublin airport* would all be thrown out. Rude security employees. They also very slowly went through the duty free bottles of whisky I bought *at the Dublin airport*. Then there was this stupid line of kiosks that no one knew how to use, then for some reason another boarding check, then another, and then finally customs, with more rude staff members. We had NO IDEA any of this was coming, and got no warning from Air Canada. Then we rushed to our connecting flight, only to find out that we had been booted from the flight anyway. (I got an email about it, which of course I didn't check because I have limited data -- not everyone is made of money who can afford unlimited data!) Then we got on finally boarded, only to sit on the tarmac forever in uncomfortable seats when they could've just let us sit in the airport. Ugh."
Cons: "they made a bunch of people check bags for plane which normally in my past experience has just gate checked larger bags. i'm not sure why they needed to check the bags, and we got away with not having to do that, but it seemed unnecessary"
Pros: "The staff rocked it, despite being in a tough position with grumpy passengers. The desk staff before boarding was less helpful. The seats were comfortable. Entertainment was rated low because it was a short flight it really should have been an N/A because I didn't use it. Not sure how to fairly rate that. No food as far as I could tell."
Cons: "2 hour delay, then sat for another hour or so after being the last to board for fueling and waiting for ground crew."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The crew was fabulous and the flight smooth."
Cons: "Not a single complaint from me!"
Cons: "The fact that my ticket said something different from my itinerary and I spent far too long at the counter to get a seat assignment."
Cons: "We were late getting into Chicago and I missed my connection to Albuquerque. I was scheduled to arrive at my destination at noon and because we were late, I didn't get home until almost midnight."
Pros: "entertainment choices"
Cons: "boarding process crew not helpful in baggage storage"
Pros: "Legroom of seat, on demand and complimentary entertainment system and stable connection of Wifi."
Cons: "Delay of the flight..."
Pros: "One person assisting passengers whose flights had been canceled was gracious and skillful."
Cons: "My flight, 370 was canceled. Initially, one of the AC staff at customer service was overwhelmed and impatient. The next flight was delayed by about seven hours. My baggage didn't arrive in Toronto. I found it extremely difficult to learn where the baggage could be, spent hours on hold with Air Canada and then Dynamex, and waited four days to receive my bag. I was with about 100 people at a summer camp. The staff created a funny skit about AC, Dynamex (sp?) and the endless "your call is important to us" tape recording. I understand that flight plans must be canceled and changed due to weather, but AC relies too heavily on automated "service.""
Pros: "Was arbitrarily assigned a seat with extra legroom. No excessive turbulence; landing was smooth."
Cons: "I was among the last to board and had to place my carry-on under the seat in front because there was no room in the overhead bin. This kept me cramped the entire time despite the "preferred" seating. Soft drink servings were really skimpy."
Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "The flight ran late and we were not kept up to date on what was going on....... In addition I prepaid for my meal and when the trolly service got to me in row 33 they told me the food was finished but I could get some snacks. They then brought me a variety of snacks. It was my understanding that a meal would have been available to customers in flight once it has been prepaid.. This was very poor customer service"
Cons: "the gate changed FOUR times and passengers were never notified as there were no crew at the gate. The flight was delayed by two hours. there was no in-flight entertainment on board as it wasn't working. upon landing, we were forced to stay in the plane for an extra 30 minutes because the gate and crew were not ready. I was NOT impressed by this flight and am very upset with how things went. I expected better of AC and will not be flying again with them."
Cons: "Air Canada did not have a workable emergency handling process. We waited for more than two hours in line to find out the agents can't assist us rebooking our flights. We ended up sleeping on the airport floor over night. They could not rebook us next day and we spent another day waiting. This is my first and last time flying on Air Canada !!!"
Pros: "Nothing, this was the worst flight ever. Delays, no communication, lacked proper updates, ground time,.."
Cons: "Everything, the plane left late. So my bags got lost. The person loading the bags, which I could see from my window, moved at an incredible slow pace and seemed like it took an hour till he was done loading the bags"
Pros: "More leg room and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Stewardess spilled hot tea on my husband and did not apologize."
Cons: "There was some dripping from the ceiling on those of us in the back of the plane. It might have been condensation from the air conditioning or air flow nozzles. In the groove of the ceiling immediately over the seats there seemed to be some dirt or mold."
Pros: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."
Pros: "The pilots always announced when to expect turbulence and apologized ahead of time; turbulence really wasn't that bad either. In-flight entertainment never cut out, though the options were limited."
Cons: "The intercom that the flight attendant used to speak to the passengers was very quiet, so it was hard to hear what he was saying every time. However, the pilots' intercom was very clear."
Pros: "Tv in all seats, individual air controls, the crew was nice and I offered up my bag to go on the checked bags when asked and it was the first one out on the bagged claim"
Cons: "I'm 5'8 and my legs hardly fit when sitting straight in the seat"
Pros: "The female flight attendant was very good at her job."
Cons: "The plane was late out of Toronto making for a mad rush at O'hare to make connection."
Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."
Pros: "It was comfy. Individual screen."
Cons: "We took off 25 minutes late and no food was served, not even a snack. I had to pay 25$ to check in my suitcase."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I could not check in online for both legs of the flight. Stuck in the middle seat even though I was ready to check in 24 hrs prior."
Pros: "Overall it was good. The crew was very friendly. The plane was small and it was a short flight, so everything else was average as expected for a short flight."
Pros: "Th pleasant crew"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was good and the in-flight entertainment options were decent."
Cons: "Plane took forever to take off because we were waiting for people late from layovers. Got one drink, no snacks, nothing else. Plane arrived over an hour late."
Pros: "Bigger plane, feel turbulence less"
Cons: "First officer forgot to tell the flight attendants to prepare for landing, usually that is what I use to brace for landing"
Cons: "It was a United flight and everywhere it said it was Air Canada instead of United. Hopping terminals and running through them last minute is not fun. To top it off the flight got delayed a ton of times and messed up our schedules completely."
Cons: "delayed 2-3 hours in Vancouver so missed connection, had to rent a vehicle to get home. Everytime, United into O'Hare… never again!"
Cons: "Disappointed with the charges .we check one lagged. We are ready to walk at security checkpoints ,two spirit agents stop my wife ,and order to check the small carrion we place and the weeks don’t feet they charge me 55.00 dollars . My point we always use this carrion . This is un abuse ,"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "I like when the flight was over and I left the plane. This airline is the worst in the business."
Cons: "The women at the gate rambled on and on each time she spoke. Rather than sticking to the boarding zones and keeping at that it was a constant annoying reminder about having to pay more money. The flight attendant don’t do their job. They spend more time Selling the credit card program than anything else. I was asked to put up another passengers seat tray as this passenger was asleep. This is not my job. They all stood in the front gossiping about who knows what instead of staying on the ready for the passengers. They look down upon and speak down upon. As If the crew was doing us a favor when it because of us they even have a job. Worst airline experience ever. I will never fly this airline again. The gate agents a check in couldn’t even speak proper English."
Cons: "I feel like I am wasting my time writing here, cause I doubt anything will come of it. 1. Flights are not cheap!! “bare fare”??? 2. Gate closed around 1 1/2 hours before departure. WTH??? 3. Seating Is unbearable (uncomfortable seats no leg room) I felt like I was in a cattle car. 4. In a night flight why does the crew feel like telling us are cruising altitude and arrival time every damn 5 minutes(Is it illegal to actually sleep on your airline? Hence no reclining.) 5. For some reason there was no gate for us so we had to walk with a baby- Yes he’s cute I know! P.s. maybe if you start putting real seat pockets and reclining chairs the airport will give you a gate!!!!!"
Pros: "NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!"
Cons: "I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, quick boarding, great prices"
Cons: "Delayed45 minutes but did receive early notice. However, Chicago airport notifications were not updated and awaiting family had long time to wait."
Pros: "Flight departed early and landed almost 40 minutes early. Good service. Nice crew. I paid extra for the big First seat."
Cons: "Still no frills. No internet. No power for your computer. No reclining seats."
Pros: "I liked the service person who maintained a decent attitude."
Cons: "Not knowing what was going on. Not having received notice before arriving at the airport. The 1 carry-on $55 fee is ridiculous. Being directed to United as a replacement without being told it would be 30 mins before the change showed up in their system, trekking all the way over, having them tell me something was wrong, trekking all the way back to Spirit, and then having a different service person snap at me that that was normal, as if 30 extra minutes and unnecessarily going back and forth wasn't anything to do with them. This is my second such experience with Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines does not care AT ALL. I will never fly them again. No explanation of delay, which then led to a full cancellation, in which they then had us waiting in a line for 20 minutes until they (finally?) ejected us out of the security zone because they put our bags at baggage claim, so I wasn't able to buy a flight at a desk from another airlines right nearby because I had to go back through security so they messed up my timing entirely. I have also not received my refund for my baggage / seat extras and it's been a full week. Horrendous. If I could give them negative ratings I would."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Spirit emailed me 12 hours before my flight telling me the flight had been cancelled. No call, just an email - and it was sent after 8pm, so it was lucky that I was checking my email that night. I called and they said they wouldn't be able to get me on another flight out until a day and a half after my original flight, so I ended up just cancelling the flight entirely and buying one on another airline. It took me 2 phone calls (2.5 hours each) to get Spirit to issue a full refund. The worst part? The flight wasn't cancelled. I found out from someone that had been on an earlier Spirit flight that was also cancelled that I had been booted off the flight so that they could rebook people from their flight. I looked on Spirit's site and sure enough the flight had reappeared and was accepting reservations. Absolutely unacceptable to lie to your customers and just boot them off of flights where they had paid for checked bags and seats in favor of other customers."
Cons: "The crew wasn't terribly helpful and it was freezing on the plane. They did find time to chit chat with fellow staff that were flying as passengers. There was no entertainment. I wouldn't fly Spirit again"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour. This then caused us to have to wait over 2 hours on the plane to be able to get off. US customs was backed up with flights that should have arrived after us. This caused us to miss our connection. The connection time for us was 3 hours and we still missed that flight. They then suggested that it was not their fault and that they would get us on the next flight on the next day at night. We decided to get our money back and bought a ticket with Southwest Airlines instead. They lack in taking responsibility for their mistakes. Their employees don't care and continue on as if nothing is wrong. Our whole flight missed each and every connection. we are all here with Southwest ready to fly out in a couple of hours."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed . I did though receive prior e mail communication about the Tampa flight being delayed. Once in Chicago, no gate listed on my ticket, all personal kept directing us to a gate that a flight to Boston( which was delayed also ) was boarding at the same time my flight to MSP was.suppose to board. absolutely no communication whatsoever about where my flight was or was being boarded or that is was delayed, until 5 min before boarding time . This experience was very irritating and upsetting.. pissed me off and will keep me from using Spirit Ailrlines again!"
Pros: "Our pilot and our flight crew"
Cons: "Stuck on runway at OHare for 1 hr 20 min after landing because they had no gate crew, then 15 minutes at the gate waiting for someone to open the door, then 1 hr standing around a continuously running and empty carousel. No representative at carousel, sitting in a nearby office and provided no tangible update or assistance. Never got out of her chair. Another staff member came later and also sat at the desk, did not help, another passenger asked him for a supervisor and he told her to shut up. Seriously??? I can only say that our crew in flight and our pilot were great, our pilot in particular was mortified by the situation, apologized repeatedly and suggested we all file complaints on spirit.com. My friend flying the same night to Dallas on Spirit had her luggage lost. Fly this airline at your own risk--you have been warned."
Cons: "flight attendant did not make the person in front of me put their seatback up for takeoff or landing, and I was the row before emergency row so it was hard to get in the seat or out! The 3-4 minute sales pitch for a credit card was over the top after being nickel and dimed for everything from boarding priority, seat selection, and bags. Spirit should not be listed with other airlines on flight services such as Kayak because of their hidden fees, and charging for carry on items. You should not have to sign up for their frequent flyer program in order to print a boarding pass."
Cons: "Due to several unavoidable obstacles I was running late to the airport. When I arrived it was 8:25am for my flight at 9:10am. The kiosk wouldn't let me check in or check luggage. The line was so immense it would take hours. I asked a woman to help me and she said that the doors had already closed? That's 45 mins before departure and I definitely could have made it to my flight. Instead I had to wait in a line for 90 minutes! By 10:00am I finally booked another flight for 8:40pm. I've now been at the airport for 12 hours. I've had 3 meals here, I'm bored out of my mind and I could have been home by noon. I should have been on my 9:10am flight to chicago. This is ridiculous, I am never flying with spirit again for as long as I live. I hope that someone will rectify this situation since I bought 2 plane tickets and I shouldnt have. absolute imbeciles. I'm extremely disappointed."
Cons: "I didn't like anything. Will never book with Kayak or spirit. My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was cancelled and I have still not got my refund. Pathetic!"
Cons: "Myself and fifteen year old daughter exited plane from Ft. Myers to grab a quick bite to eat and upon returning to same plane with printed boarding passes and assigned seats our boarding passes did not scan correctly. At this time there was about 30 or so people behind us to board as there was plenty of time. We were asked to step aside and a employee was trying to figure things out. In the meantime ALL people in line were allowed on plane even though several had problems but were quickly fixed! At last second we were told to board the plane and try to find two seats. Only one was left on flight and we were told they had to leave and sorry but we must exit plane! Worst I have ever been treated by an airline ever in all my years of travel! I did get some money compensation, rented a car and drove 13 hours to Chicago! Awful way to end a vacation!"
Cons: "During a difficult weather situation, Spirit was absolutely useless and left us stranded for a week. With storms on the East Coast, Spirit cancelled flights two days in a row (as did all other airlines). However, with Spirit, the website was useless for rebooking ourselves, and there were so few representatives at the airport and to reach a rep on the phone that we waited several hours just to be able to rebook at the airport. In the end, Spirit could not get us on another flight out for 7 more days. Causing extreme additional expense to me and my travel partner. I will never risk flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Spirit canceled our flight and their only solution was refund or wait 3 days until they could get us home. Had to spend thousands to rebook to get us home the next day on another again. Never again."
Pros: "Departed on time & arrived early!"
Cons: "Having booked wheelchair service for my flight but I was unable to use it as the lines for baggage check-in & security were extremely long. I would have missed my flight waiting for the wheelchair service. There seemed to be no special line for wheelchair check-in at Ft Lauderdale airport due to the overcrowding. I was never even asked if I needed assistance until deboarded the plane in Chicago. It is a shame that Spirit does not take handy-capped passengers needs seriously at all locations. They did have decent wheelchair service in Chicago. If you do need wheelchair service on Spirit Airlines you will need to arrive 3+ hours prior to your flight when busy to be sure you don't miss your flight! Also, beware of their outrageous luggage charges even for carry-on luggage!"
Pros: "Cheap flights."
Cons: "We were told our flight was downgraded and that 35 passengers needed to switch thier flight as there was no seats available. We had a group of 5 people and 2 did not have seats. So we volunteered to switch our flights as we were told we would leave the following day at the same time all together, get a hotel for the night, food vouchers and 2 free round trip flights. So when they were switching our flights they booked 3 out of the 5 who volunteered and they told us we could not be on the same flight. Eventually they got us all on the same flight but that was 4 or 5 hours later. In regards to the food vouchers we were informed we could only use them in the airport but we were not allowed pass tsa as we did not have boarding passes. We then asked about our luggage as we had checked them in when we first arrived and they informed us they pulled them out of the flight and they were going to be at luggage claim. When we tried to get our luggage at baggage claim we were then informed that no luggages were pulled and they were already in transit to chicago. So the supervision told us that we could buy whatever items we needed for the night and we would get reimbursed later, which keep in mind we had to take a taxi from the hotel to a target near by. This whole process was ridiculous and it seemed as if no one was able to provide us with accurate information. Had we known it was going to be such a hassel and inconvenience to ourselves we would have never given up our seats to begin with. Pedro was the name of the person at the gate who informed us we would have a flight all together and that was false in which carlos had told him. Rosario at check in was patient and helped the most but she informed us our luggage was going to be available for us and that was false. Zachary manning Katona was very unprofessional and rude to us as well as his coworkers. And edier the supervisor informed us we will get a reimbursement for the items we buy since our luggage was shipped back to chicago, so lets see if thats true or false when the time comes."
Pros: "Spirit Airlines gouged us on our baggage in multiple ways. The worst was forcing us to pay $100 (yes, $100) to check my 5 year old son's TINY little "carryon suitcase" at the gate in Los Angeles because it rose 1/2 inch above the top of their "personal item" measuring bin. I complained, loudly, and they acted like they were doing me a favor by lowering the "fee" (blackmail / protection racket extortion - after telling us in Chicago that the little bag was OK) to $65 With this fee our total costs for our luggage on one roundtrip flight, for a family of four, including an 8 and a 5 year old, was OVER $300! And we packed reasonably, only checking three bags each way, plus the forced checking of the fourth bag on the way back."
Cons: "Insult to injury is their luggage tags, which all showcase the slogan "Save Major Moolah". I will NEVER fly Spirit again, and I will be lodging a formal complaint."
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: "The crew was fun and light hearted"
Cons: "I should've read all the fine print about the fees. While it may seem like you're getting a great price is really not by the time you pay for everything from baggage fees there and back plus seats together there and back. Seats were uncomfortable and didn't recline. Not impressed"
Pros: "The crew was nice, I guess."
Cons: "It started with my flight being delayed a literal 6 times throughout the day, it was the last flight of the day. I checked in the night before and saved my boarding pass as a PDF since I don't have a printer. When I arrive over an hour before my latest and most stable delayed time, I'm not allowed to print a boarding pass at the kiosk and am directed to speak to someone at the desk, but lo and behold, they've already left for the night. TSA tells me they can't let me through because of course Spirit boarding passes aren't scannable. When I speak to the Spirit rep in baggage claim as TSA suggests, she tells me she can't help me, can't print the boarding pass, and that I had to call reservations to REBOOK my flight because I was "late" for a flight that I already checked in for and was still over an hour away from leaving as far as I was updated. Two other men were in the same situation and we basically had to beg people in Southwest to let us print our boarding passes so we could get on the flight. I was successful but I don't think my comrades were because of course when they logged in to Spirit, they no longer had access to the boarding pass, despite also checking in online earlier. When I get through security and the gate, I find out the flight is leaving 40 min earlier than any flight status update reports. NO notification anywhere. I was so hesitant to fly Spirit knowing their history with others but I was going on a < 36 hour trip wanted to save $. Spirit will never receive my business again. They intentionally create systems to inconvenience people and provide poor customer service."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to the plane being stuck in another city due to weather. I've had this happen before with other airlines, and they were able to rebook me on another airline's flight, with no price difference. With Spirit, they only were able to refund my money or move me to another date, four days later, which would have caused me to miss the event I was supposed to attend over the weekend. I thought since I was flying solo, without my kids in tow, using a cut-rate airline would have worked out. I've had no problems with JetBlue or SW in the past. But I would stay away from using Spirit."
Pros: "NOTHING POSITIVE!"
Cons: "They chose to cancel the return flight within 2 hours of the scheduled departure and were not at all helpful trying to get anyone out on any other airlines (because they're next available flight to that destination was 4 days out...) Not to mention on the initial flight to my destination, they had everyone board the plane 40 minutes early and then told everyone they had to all evacuate the plane and delayed the flight for 4 hours for NO reason!!!!! I would highly recommend avoiding flying spirit airlines at all cost, what I thought was a decent deal ended costing me an extra $400 for my last minute one-way trip and adding many many hours to my time traveling......"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight was comfortable. Crew was kind."
Cons: "Hidden fees were angering. It is marketed as unbundling, but this isn't advertised until its to late. i was shocked when I checked in online and was required to select a seat and tonpay an additional fee for it. Because other, less expensive seats were taken,I had to pay $50 for a seat on a flight that I already paid for. There was a fee for my bag, regardless if I check or carry on. Everyone has at least one bag! Unless I'm flying to be there for a couple of hours, I need a bag how dare you charge me for a seat and one carry on size bag. These things are standard. Food was very limited and very overpriced for the minuscule items. I had to pay $2.00 for about 10oz of coffee. In the end, Also, none of the seats on the flight recline so forget being comfortable and resting on the flight b In the end I paid more for this flight that I did when I made the same trip in Jet Blue. This "unbundling" is a marketing tactic designed to sooo customers into spending money on additional (some required) fees. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Boarding was alright, pretty quick and that's about it."
Cons: "Well let's start at the check in, so I got to an airport about 40 minutes before my boarding(usually what I do when I fly with Southwest), went on to check in my bag, once I got there the receptionist was extremely rude, as well as uneducated on the layout of the gates, as soon as my bag got checked in she threw it off the scale and told me to move on as soon as I asked her why she is being so aggressive with my baggage. Then when I was boarding there were no smiles by the crew, the seats were extremely uncomfortable, and I was waiting for a water for about 15 minutes asked a crew member again and she responded with "You are not the only passenger here, I will bring you your water once I'm done with other passengers" and for the 15 minutes I did not see her help a single customer. I am so disappointed in this flight that I am not flying with them back, instead I spent just a bit more and will fly out of Chicago with a different airline. Avoid spirit airlines at all costs!"
Pros: "When a plane arrives late the turn around time is amazing. Doesn't take them much time at all to get going again. Attendants and pilots were professional."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess. You may board by zones but it really doesn't seem to workout. About half the people respect the order about half do not. People cut in line when they haven't even been there waiting. Do something like Southwest and have us board by groupings. They are much smaller units and people get in their correct order. You guys can get portable ones. That would move you all up significantly in the boarding process. That is by far the worst of all categories. The ladies at the gate really can't police that, make it easy for those who are boarding by having a clear and organized process."
Cons: "The extreme restrictions on luggage are very hard to deal with, and during the flight there are constant announcements for drinks and snacks for sale. Considering the base rate for a flight is only a little less than other airlines, and if you decide to pay for a reasonably-sized suitcase it's actually more expensive than other airlines, it doesn't make a lot of sense to fly with Spirit. It also feels like they're doing you a favor for even letting you on the plane, rather than grateful for your business. The entire Spirit experience drives me up a wall."
Pros: "Only their initial "SUCKER PRICE" that does NOT include any luggage or the ability to sit with your family without paying extra!!!"
Cons: "They use an initial "SUCKER PRICE" which does NOT include ANY LUGGAGE or the ability to SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY without paying extra!! $50 extra for each piece of luggage ... EACH WAY1 If you don't pay at the check in counter they charge $100 for each piece of luggage - each way and that includes ANY BACKPACK WITH WHEELS! $25 FOR EACH FAMILY MEMBER TO SIT TOGETHER!!!! NO COMPLIMENTARY FOOD OR DRINK. 2 sodas are $5! (can't buy just one) NO none zero entertainment, not even a radio channel."
Cons: "The crew members were rude and I felt inconvenienced by any request (only made one--for a beverage). I witnessed extreme rudeness of the crew members to other customers as well. The seats don't recline and are quite thin and hard. Without doubt, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on (as was the other flight on this trip on a spirit plane). I will not be flying spirit ever again. I paid for my checked bag 24 hrs in advance and still paid $42 dollars. I luckily had a printer where I was staying and could print my boarding pass to avoid being charged for that. All that being said, even with my planning and following "spirit 101" guidelines on their website, I ended up paying the same I would have had I flown another (more comfortable, less inconvenient) airline with better customer service."
Pros: "The flight was very cost effective."
Cons: "There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness."
Cons: "Spirit airlines claims it has the lowest fares. I had to pay more for this flight than my Delta flight. I was not impressed with the fact that you have to pay for your seats ($10) if you want to know where you're seated when you check in. That doesn't even make sense. Then you have to pay even for water! For goodness sake on a two hour flight that was already delayed by an hour they had nothing complimentary to give us. I was freezing the entire time back to Chicago. In fact I was very uncomfortable because I don't think that the seats even went back. I felt like I was hustled by Spirit airlines and will choose not to take them ever again."
Pros: "You can tell the planes have been updated and they were comfortable."
Cons: "All of the joking done by the stewards on the overhead microphone. Too many jokes and their content, it wasn't funny at that point it was unprofessional. Super disappointed about having my luggage left at my city of origin and the earliest I was offered to get it returned was in 24 hours! So I'm in a new city with no clothes at all and the rest of my continents that were in my suitcase. Arranging to have the suitcase dropped off is not enough to counter the worry and financial inconvenience that comes with not having your stuff. I am thoroughly disappointed and will never fly with spirit again"
Pros: "Crew was kind"
Cons: "the bag fees, seat choices, and additional amenities add up. What started as a 286$ flight, turned into almost 400. The ride was very uncomfortable as my fellow passengers had no regards to other people on the plane. The planes are not nice, which is unfortunate for long flights. We were re-routed due to low gas, but the information on getting us back on the plane was minimal and inefficient. The crew really needs to work on communication. What was supposed to be a 4 hour journey, turned into a 9 hour journey. Just not an ideal situation. Won't be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "You nickel and dime for every aspect of the experience, from checking in, selecting seats, carrying on my bag, getting a beverage. Then I get to my seat, which for some reason has a folding trey table within the seat, making the seat smaller than the others. I'm a tall man, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever flown on. I was squeezed into a seat that didn't fit. I won't be flying with you again, and will suggest my friends and family not as well. You charged $55 for a carry-on bag? What a con!"
Cons: "Was delayed for 4 hrs and email notifications sent showed flight on time and customer service is not up to the mark"
Pros: "Air Craft was very nice."
Cons: "The entire crew both at the terminal as well as on the plane, the way the customers were spoken to was very unpleasant."
Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"
Cons: "This was one of the worst travel experiences in my life. After arriving to LGA, I found out that my flight was outright cancelled because the pilot no showed for his shift, and therefore all flights with that plane/crew were cancelled outright. While Spirit did offer to buy me a ticket on another airline, I had to wait on hold for over an hour for my call to be answered by the customer service team. The customer service member who finally answered my call was very polite, but told me that the next available flight to ORD was in two days. When I explained that this was not going to work for me, she then said that the next available flight was at 4pm and connected through DC (1. it was 8am at the time, and 2. I had originally purchased a direct flight). Since I needed to get home to Chicago that same day, I accepted this flight on American, even though I knew I would have 7+ hours to kill in the gate at LGA and there was a layover late in the day in DC (which means there was a chance I would be stuck in DC overnight if the evening flight didn't get out of DC). While waiting the 7 hours at LGA though, I learned that American Airlines has direct flights to Chicago every hour and that each one of those flights had plenty of available seats. Therefore I am extremely upset with Spirit for lying to me. Outright cancelling a flight is bad enough, but then to be untruthful when rebooking because of their company's mistake causing me to spend 13 hours traveling instead of the two initially intended, is completely unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour, charged extra for seats, charged extra for luggage, long line through TSA, uncomfortable seats, etc., etc., Miserable experience"
Pros: "I liked that I was boarded in group 1. I don't know how that was selected but I was happy to receive that option. The travelers on the flight were all very friendly. I'm not sure if it was because I was surrounded by Midwesterners or if those of us who fly on Spirit are a weird bunch. There was a collective sarcasm about Spirit and the quality of the airlines expressed by the passengers. No bashing, lightly comical."
Cons: "I did not like the lack of interest by the flight attendants. I understand that this is a budget airline, but a smile shouldn’t cost extra. It felt as if we were inconveniencing the crew with our presence on the plane. They did not seem to enjoy their job very much at all. The seats on the plane were very close together. There was very little room in any direction. I was glad to have an aisle seat. I felt that the baggage fees were excessive. The website claims that the airline is more cost effective because the travelers only pay for what they use. My expectation was to receive a low cost flight, pay for my bags as necessary and receive an overall savings to the other airlines. I was willing to give up some comfort for cost savings. At the end of it all however, THERE WERE NO COST SAVINGS. The “discounted” base fare, plus the bag fees ended up costing more than the other airlines. What I gave up in comfort did not justify the costs that I had to pay financially. I will not make that decision again. My overall experience with Spirit was dissatisfaction. In the future I will make other arrangements."
Pros: "I liked that I didn't die. That's pretty much it."
Cons: "Being delayed without being told, switching gates without being told (thank goodness for the FlightView app or I would have been sent to Timbuktu), being told we're leaving the runway in "a few minutes" only to wait another 34 minutes, having sticky stuff on the seats and garbage in the seat, the very loud squeaky noise the engines made when leaving, and many other stressful factors dealing with other passengers that were an unfortunate event of fate."
Cons: "They told the lady with the service animal that she had to force her dog onto her lap. When she asked for bulkhead seating, they said it was already filled and paid for, and that she should have paid ahead of time. She pulled out a full printout of the rights and space required for service animals. They showed it to the captain, returned, and told her the law didn't matter, this was their policy. On Spirit Airlines, people with service animals are required to pay more than other customers, and are generally disrespected and mistreated."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled our flight. Spent 4+ hours on the phone attempting to reschedule. After requesting to speak to a manager I was told I would get a call back within 3 to 24 hours. When I spoke to a manager, I was told that Spirit only had a flight available 2 days later, that I had waited too long to reschedule my flight (I called spirit immediately and waited in hold for hours), and that spirit would do nothing to offset the cost of having to spend two extra days waiting for the flight they offered me 48 hours later than scheduled. We cancelled our flight and spent extra money booking last minute flights on another airline. Will never fly spirit again and will advise anyone that's asks to do the same."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Didn't like that Spirit Airlines charges even for a cup of tea or coffee, and they also charge for carry-on luggage Also surprised that the seats don't recline!"
Pros: "I liked Nothing, had to buy another ticket on delta to get to msy. Tsa caused a one and a half hour delay, more than a dozen passengers missed this flight, everyone standing at the ramp when the jetway began to pull back and they wouldn't let us on, it wasn't even a foot away from the plane! I'm appreciative of a good price and a nice airline, but the treatment passengers received at that moment was awful, disrespectful and non caring. The next available flight was on Saturday, today is Thursday! The cost to more than a doze people was tremendous. Very poor resolve to an all to common occurrence at ó hare."
