Baggage handling was very poor Arrived in a later flight and spent over an hour then inquired about my baggage and then filed the claim Agent already new that my baggage is not coming in the same flight we’re on !!! Finally two bags were delivered after 1 am

Delayed over 2 hours and my bags have been lost in NYc

Cons: "1 hour delayed"
Pros: "Flight left quick and everything was in order"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. They did not assign seats had to wait till last moment to get seat assignment. They were trying to get us to pay extra for it"
Cons: "Early seat assignment"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was amazing."
Pros: "Older female flight attandant was amazing. Great crew!"
Pros: "Swift professional service. Pilot was exceptional; we didn’t even feel the landing or take off"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "There was an issue with the booking System. I received a text that my flight was delayed 2 hours then 20 minutes before the original time another text that the flight is now on time. This screwed up the entire trip"
Cons: "landing was smoothest I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "No entertainment. And ac/ventilation was horrible"
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Probably best airline to take to Houston"
Cons: "My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked."
Cons: "Landed half hours early and had to sit on the plane until there was an open gate. Really?????! Punished for being early! Give me a break"
Pros: "Jet blue has free potato chips and also allows you to watch television."
Cons: "Jet Blue provided 5 sequential delay messages over an hour. Their inability to better estimate departure is disappointing. The real problem is that delay was caused directly by the airline's incompetence. There were no weather issues, the takeoff spots were available. They simply failed to load snacks. Although there WAS a minor prior delay bc a slightly late plane arrival, we eventually were delayed about an extra hour to supply snacks on a 4-hr flight. Given the ground crew had EXTRA time to load and also considering the tiny set of options offered, this is senseless. Further, b/c they ran out of overhead bins, they offered to GATE check my luggage. This was essentially a lie - they put it with checked bags, unlike the gate checked items I watched others retrieve. The combination of these errors led me to arrive at the car rental desk after closure. This caused me to incur a taxi fare, so spend 30 min or so working out an alternative rental the following day, and then yet ANOTHER cab to the Car Desk to get the car. This is the only time in my hundred or so car rentals anything like this has happened. I will certainly think twice (or more) before booking Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Took and landed and did not die. All Way on time."
Cons: "Old seats and lousy food choices as most airlines have now."
Pros: "Free WiFi, screen entertainment options are good though I didn’t take advantage. Crew alway super nice. Apparently there were some computer issues in th cockpit but pilot got through it without much delay."
Cons: "No power plugs at the seats. I’ve become accustomed to outlets on JetBlue flights and now other domestic carriers. Thought I’d get work done but the one time I didn’t charge up my laptop I find out I’m out of luck. Plane was visibly part of an old fleet."
Pros: "Even with a delay it was nice"
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
Pros: "everything period"
Cons: "So the delay messages started at 7am two hours before the flight was scheduled to leave. Flight is over an hour delayed. The flight is only a hour long but still annoying. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early and noticed that the plane was in fact at the gate. Hmmm, no pilot apparently. Pilot arrives, we board with the hopes of getting out earlier than the delayed stated. But wait, all the passengers are on board but we are waiting for ice and catering. Seriously, the plane has been here for 2 hours and jet blue can’t spped things up and we are further delayed by waiting for ice. Poor planning!"
Pros: "L'espace dans l'avion - c'est la 1ère fois que j'en ai autant en classe éco ! Le personnel de bord, vraiment adorable, drôle et à l'écoute"
Cons: "Pas de distraction et collation limitée. Mais c'est vraiment un détail !"
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Pros: "Price of ticket is about it."
Cons: "From the time I got to the gate 90 minutes before flight to the time I got off it was terrable. Delays before boarding with no explanation then the same continued onboarding. First it was waiting for bags. Strange when there's a 2 hour+ delay that all the bags weren't there? Then waiting for paperwork followed by the part they needed was incorrect and a new one was on it's way from the hanger.. Finally departed 1 hour plus later. The plane was an old cattle car. Free TV didn't work right, so at did not recline (no it wasn't an exit row.). Most of the crew and gate attendants were rude and indifferent except for on flight attendant. The entire row of seats didn't recline at all. She was very apologetic and acknowledged it was uncomfortable especially on a 5+hour flight. She did offer us something to eat, blankets earbud. Still my back was killing me upon arrival at Phoenix. JEt Blue. Get your act together. This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We missed our flight by 2min, and no one made an announcement informing us that they were about to leave."
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."
Pros: "Very nice and professional hostesses."
Cons: "Sound was not great in purchased headphones."
Pros: "On time, what else do you need to know?"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment is lacking."
Pros: "Seating is spacious, food was okay, entertainment was sufficient but not the best. Overall I was impressed with Jet Blue and will most likely fly with them again in future."
Cons: "Didn't like a huge argument taking place between one family which held the flight up by at least 30 minutes. The crew were very patient with this family, but the passengers were not. I think the family should have been removed and asked to take another flight so that my flight could leave on time. It made everyone very nervous because we didn't know to what extent this conflict would escalate, so we had to sit listening to 3 or 4 members of the family arguing and constantly removing passports from luggage and going back and forth in and out of the plane. One member of this family actually entered the cockpit, which unnerved me because of the risks with terrorists these days. The family appeared to be of muslim descent."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Snacks"
Cons: "Tv did not work"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed in reality, but we were only told it would be 30 minutes late. We then waited on the runway for a very long time, which wasn’t incorporated into the information we were given. This made me miss a dinner reservation in buffalo."
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Cooperation with Emirates seemed not to be that well established"
Pros: "Nice crew.."
Pros: "I just like the way the crew attended to make you more comfortable in your flight."
Pros: "Snacks. Wifi"
Cons: "This is my fourth flight with JetBlue, ALL four times the flight was delayed 1-4 hours each. It seems like it’s an occurring theme for JetBlue. The crew were in a bad mood, did not want to help at all."
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Cons: "A flight that was to leave at 6 am did not leave untill almost 9 AM because the maintenance was onboard and would not clear it.. They swapped airplanes gave us a new gate and the same problem at the new gate as well..... the maintenance is in the plane and we will begin boarding once they give us a green light..."
Pros: "My child had a very good escorted flight the attendants were very attentive and knowledgeable of my child's needs I highly recommend and if anyone needs an escorted flight they definitely will not regret it"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "A super thanks to the staff member who expedited our boarding pass otherwise we eould have missed our flight due to snow delays. Great flight and very smooth landing."
Cons: "No USB Food is fine considering it is a value priced airline."
Pros: "The attendants were very friendly and accomodating. I have been travelling jetblue for seventeen years when flights to Buffalo was $49. I love jetblue."
Pros: "Well trained flight attendant crew."
Pros: "We were returning Home from N, J, we left Florida because of IRMA The hardest part was while booking the flight from Newark to Tampa. At a reasonable rate. We were price gouged going North by another airline, Awful We are both over 80 years old. I had to call on the phone waited about 10 minutes on hold but when I did get someone they helped me pay over the phone and order wheelchairs. Smooth flight. We had to flee Florida we could not fly jet Blue on short notice. to N.J. Flew other Airline and were really displeased."
Cons: "Not being able to pay for luggage and order wheelchair online with the first try. Weare both over 80 years old. Most difficult Had to call on the phone twice. Waited for 10 or more minutes. Our flight was delayed from 6:59 to about 9 P.M. We did get 2 text nice. But was told to come on in any. So we did and waited at airport for flight to leave at 9:15"
Pros: "From the start to the end nice right no problems at all thank you"
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating of course"
Cons: "I was disappointed in the boarding, I traveled with my young daughter and infant son and when they announced those who require additional time, handicap assistance,etc I proceeded to board then all these other folks also jumped up skipping me and my children when it was not their turn. And the gate people allowed them to do so I had to be the one to say excuse me we were here 1st. On top of that when we landed back in NY I heard my stroller get tossed and discovered when I got home it was broke. So upset!!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No one checked our boarding passes... I waved a piece of paper, and all three of us went thru the entrance to security. We had tad pre- checked passes but since no one looked, we had to wait on a line for 20 minutes. Pre- check line? Nom- existent."
Pros: "Over all Good!!"
Pros: "Price, schedule, and price"
Cons: "Gate personnel at TPA neglected to inform us of a gate change which almost caused us to miss our flight - argued with us about the efficacy of their so called, gate change announcements . No notification either email or text from Jet Blue to check in. Seemed to make the process harder to complete. The mobile site for Jet Blue was not very reliable or user friendly and made getting boarding passes quite trying. All this only applies to the DCA to TPA leg of our trip."
Pros: "The crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat uncomfortable and hard."
Cons: "The main economy seats were far too narrow."
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Cons: "Give food to passengers"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. With the plane full they managed to serve all with smiles on their faces and solved all problems, including cabin luggage problem."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The flight was on time at departure and 30 minutes on arrival."
Cons: "Since I got a good deal on the ticket, my boarding zone was “Basic”. That kind of sucked, but I still could fit bag in the airplane so it all worked out"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "In flight service was disappointing."
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Michael was super polite and helpful. i Traveled with my young son and he took such good care of us."
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Staff, room, boarding process, flight schedule and more!"
Cons: "Awful, loud credit card sales pitch wine up children and another everyone in cabin for what seemed an eternity. Absolutely disgusting."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "At this stage, you cannot use such an old plane for an overseas 8 hour flight. The plane was so old it even had the cigarrete disposers on the arm rest and it didn't have TVs not power outlets."
Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Cons: "We waited on the check - in line for 3 hours because only 2 customer service reps were there to check-in customers. In 3 hours, only 2 people were assisted, causing us to miss our flight. I was traveling with my infant daughter on her first flight, I wasn't able to nurse her or change her. What a terrible experience. Are you working with American Airlines to improve their customer service? Surely, because you offer their flights in your site you support their practices. I just wanted a comfortable and reliable flight for my family. It's been very frustrating so far..."
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Pros: "Beautiful design n great storage"
Cons: "Hard to get out of seat unless in fully upright biz class position"
Pros: "Check in staff were very good.Lots of entertainment choices. Very comfortable seating,was worth the extra price."
Cons: "I went to check in with Iberia airlines as the flight information said. Desk was closed. Went to American airlines as suggested by airport staff, which was correct. Completely different terminal,we were lucky we had 3 hours between connections, the whole process took over an hour. Very confusing. The plane was American Airlines, Iberia was not mentioned anywhere else,very confusing. Dinner was served within an hour of taking off at 11pm, which we didnt have, but then nothing until an hour before landing and very hurried. Staff had been very busy chatting in the galley. No snacks available. Had a group of rowdy and rude passengers near us, not alcohol related. I think staff shoud have had a word with them, it looked like they didnt want to know, another passenger finaly did after 5 patient hours. Arrived in London, our bags did not. Staff were good. They found the error straight away. They delivered them to our home the next day which was a very good service."
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Cons: "Very old plane. Small seats. No individual TV screen."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Cons: "Small seats. No entertainment old plane"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed by 4 hours so I automatically missed my connection. i called american to reschedule my flight for the next day in order to spend the night at my house and not have ro ask for hotel, they said no problem. when I go to she counter to explain they said that they would put me on a later flight and that they where sure I would make it. when I arrived miami I had missed my connection and they did NOT cover the hotel expenses they rebooked me for the next day at 5pm. no food no hotel no nothing. the next day I arrived at the airport counter the people at the american airline's counter did not want to let me thorugh because I had a one way ticket... after explaining for over 25 minutes they let me go.... the miami gloght to Bermuda then was also delayed for a total of 2 hours and they changed gates 8 times from one end to thw other and so on.... the worst service ever........"
Cons: "I was involved with the re routing to Utah -circled there for a few hours and then drop off in Ontario. there was a 7 hour delay, missed a day of work and was only given a voucher for a taxi.... the crew was sweet but didnt give ANY info on what was happening.. Absolutely pitiful."
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off and landing, malfunctioning door not weather caused the delay Moved to other gate and plane with blasts of cold air on passengers Stood on plane after landing Stood on bus waiting to be driven to exit point in terminal Missed the train that I had ticket for, bought online, so I lost the money and lost the day planned around the train schedule (plane was supposed to arrive at 7:10 and it landed after 10:00. I moved as quickly as possible through all stages, with no checked bags, cash in hand, but I missed a 12:30 train and failed to meet the guide lined up to meet me"
Cons: "The delay. My flight was suppossed to depart at 7:25pm and left at 9:30"
Pros: "The flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "They don't really explain the safety procedures and the FA's were a bit rude at times."
Pros: "It started with a unclear check-in process, proceeded with a multi-hour delayed flight with several reasons given for each return back to gate. Ended with us getting off the plane 4 hours after we were originally due to take off, a further hour delay before they said we could board again but then midway through that boarding we were told the flight was cancelled and no hotels were available and we'd need to return to check-in area to find out next steps. All this with our exhausted 4-year olds. Ended with us leaving the airport at 3 am. I truly never wish to fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Check-in, communication, the plane (I can't recall the last time we flew in a 757 plane (3 and 3 in each row) with no TVs for a transatlantic flight! Finally the multi delays ending with a cancelled flight with no alternate flight immediately offered to all."
Pros: "It was fine. I don't really like to fly because I tend to get queasy. The pilot missed all of the pot holes. There were not any crying children or loud talkers. Bonus! If I could have propped up my legs on the seat back in front of me it would have been perfect!"
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Cons: "The plane took off much later than it was supposed to, so we were already behind. Once we got onto the runway, the plane turned around and went back for three people who had missed the flight. I suppose if I had barely missed the flight, I would want the plane to turn around. However, those three people held up a plane that was completely full and had standby passengers. Through the entire flight, there was an issue with the seating and there was a man standing up at the front because he had nowhere to sit. It was one of the most bizarre flights I've ever taken... and I fly about 15-20 times a year."
Pros: "Can't much think of anything. Gave the crew a break with the 'ok' only because I'm pretty sure none of this is their fault. They still smiled their way through this s*** assignment."
Cons: "We were assigned a Boeing 767. The seats were barely comfortable, even though I paid $129 to get "up to 6" more legroom" and snagged a bulkhead seat. (Is it me or do you want to start a revolution when you are just on the other side of the curtain where those on the other side are being served champagne, have large tv screens and fully reclining sleeper beds?). The food mediocre/unremarkable but heh, it's an airplane , the crew ok but uniforms dated and drab. The real letdown was the entertainment system. Or I shoudld say lack thereof. I was psyched that the seat was designated as having a charger. Yeah, if I'm carrying my car charger with me! Yikes!!! So, strike one. Then, NO ON DEMAND service of any kind, since this plane is not equipped with wifi, which would have given us the ability to watch on an iPad or other device. Strike two. And THEN, when you think, no this can't get worse, there are a strong of three 2ND RATE movies shown back to back. No choice, no watch when you want, in other words, no ON DEMAND. Oh, and did I mention the really really REALLY old pull-out remote control with a credit card phone on the flip side? STRIKE THREE! This was a Finnair booking through Kayak, but on an American Airlines code share. The gate at JFK was changed no less than 4 times, the final time, one hour before departure, from Gate 14 to Gate 45. Good thing I had left myself plenty of extra time! The check-in process at Finnair counter no less than a nightmare. Stood in line for 30 minutes, then told we had to go to "Line 1" and use one of the kiosks to print our boarding passes (we checked in online but were not given phone-board passes) and check our bags. This area was nothing short of pandemonium with agents yelling at us to form straight lines. Many of the kiosks were not working not working and there were not enough agents to help the throngs."
Pros: "I liked nothing about the flight or services of the staff."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled hours before I was scheduled. I checked in very early because I was coming in from another flight. At check-in the flight was still indicated as on-time. When I arrived shortly to the gate it indicated that the flight had been cancelled. I was assigned to the flight before which was delayed. We were not served beverages because we were told that the ride www short. I observed the flight attendant talking abruptly to other passengers When we arrived in DC, we were told that another plane was parked at our gate. We sat on the runway for almost an hour. I was told when I arrived that my bag had been accidently sent to Charlotte. Unbelievable!!"
Pros: "The crew handled themselves well under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small."
Pros: "Seems we were upgraded to exit-row seats somehow - loved the legroom!"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient even after a seat mix up due to exhaustion."
Cons: "The snacks were bland and the tv selection was very limited."
Cons: "Delayed an hour and a half, sat on the plane over an hour prior to departure. can’t get water from staff as they said we weren’t delayed an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Pros: "On time and everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "Free food."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very professional."
Cons: "When booking a flight that has a lay-over, the language is not clear to the passenger that each flight requires it's own carry on bag fee. I understand the mission of Spirit but when someone purchases a 1 stop or more trip it can be very costly! Because of this, my flight was no longer cheaper than any other airline that didn't charge for carry on bags."
Pros: "Once I boarded and found MY seat actually there, right where it was supposed to be, and we departed early, pleasant attendants (way nicer and knowledgeable than on-line booking crew!), uncrowded plane, no frantic, rude rush to get us through snack service, early arrival, uncomplicated, speedy disembarking, maybe, just maybe , I'll fly Spirit again. Now that I know all the ropes, rules, fine-print, etc.I'll price to see if it's really worth the drive to TIA, the parking expense, all the add-ons, or if it's easier and less agita just to leave from SRQ, my down-the-street airport and maybe just a few $$ more."
Cons: "The absolute chicanery of your on-line booking process!!!! Get real, people...I bet YOU couldnt even complete the process and remain sane!!!! I just read some reviews: people are rude loud and angry because of your online process I know you claim bare costs, but we are still giving you our hard-earned miney. We do it because we cant fly first-class (-$$$-) so dont make us feel like we are settling for steerage. It's a lot of money to us!"
Pros: "The over all expierence was great I was worried because I had heard they always run late and feel like a Sadie in the seat not the case"
Cons: "Not able to bring the standard carry on"
Cons: "Flight delayed almost an hour. There was zero cushion in the seats and I tried two different ones. It was like sitting on fabric covered steel bars."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "After boarding the flight was delayed for a mechanical issue for almost an hour. It did not give me confidence about the overall safety of the plane that they found a serious mechanical issue at the last second before the plane was going to take off."
Pros: "Flight to tampa good. But the anxiety from the news of the spirit airline problems & was told to show up over 2hrs early to check in. The ORD airport wasn't experiencing any problems"
Cons: "problems w/spirit return flight. my flight was cancelled last minute because of pilot problems. To add insult to injury they gave a $50 voucher. What is that suppose to do/make up for?!!!!!!!!!!! And to top it off, it has an expiration date of about a month & 1/2. What a joke!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "You did great in a difficult stormy situation"
Pros: "Attendants had a great attitude even in the middle of the night. They were also helpful and accommodating when the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Safely was very nauseous at landing, when I've never been before, but that's was the only bad bit."
Cons: "Sitting next to Honey boo boo and a slob, wouldn't let me move so I was sandwiched in-between a couple"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After all the costs for food, drinks, carryons, and checked luggage it's cheaper to fly other airlines. Except United which I refuse to use because of its horrible reaccomadation rules."
Pros: "Liked non stop to my destination, crew was pleasant, initial ticket price."
Cons: "Disliked all the extra charges, and that baggage handlers broke my luggage and threw on the conveyor belt wide open."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and no attempt was made to find another flight that weekend. We were sent four different places to talk to agents. As tempers flared, someone handed out cards and said to go online for a refund. When I went online, I was directed to call. My $98 roundtrip ticket with seats and one bag ended up costing $200. My credit card bill also contained a $59.95 charge that Spirit couldn't explain. The credit card company removed it. Why does anyone fly Spirit?"
Pros: "That day was very windy and rainy at BWI and there had been some delays for weather, but the staff was very patient and professional in handling the crowds"
Cons: "People that were rude to the Spirit staff members."
Pros: "Flight cancelled for no reason said weather but there was 12 other airlines going to Tampa also left us hanging refund would take 10 days. No comp of any kind. Will never use this airline again and strongly suggest you do not either. Our flight was only a one way and 1 hour flight and they couldn't even get that right. Talk with other passenger said this is the 4 Th time for him never again"
Pros: "Had cup noodle on the plane, though it was the most expensive cup noodle I've ever had ($3.50), it was very tasty and satisfied my hunger. Bathroom in the back of the plane was one of the cleanest I've seen on a plane."
Cons: "We were told to get ready for landing and we could see that the plane was getting really close to the ground. It seemed like we were just inches above ground, when suddenly the plane went straight up in the air like a rocket. No one knew what was going on and why we did that. We went up pretty high, above clouds again. The pilot nor flight attendants informed us of anything and 15 minutes after circling around in the sky, the pilot informed us while stammering that we had to dodge a thunderstorm or strong winds. Then another 15 minutes of silence (from the crew) we finally touched down after tons of turbulence. It was the most traumatic experience for me and my family. Everyone on the plane clapped for joy when we finally landed. I don't know if we would want to fly with Spirit any time soon."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave Sunday at 5. Didn't leave until Monday at 530. No voucher or anything comped for the rental car or hotel I had to get because of it. Spirit customer service is TERRIBLE. they do not care about their passengers."
Pros: "We liked the reasonable rates and on time flights. Ease of early online check in and good seats."
Cons: "Having to be very careful not to mistakenly sign up for extras. Also making sure to measure personal bags so as not to have outrageous fees on baggage."
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "You think you're spending less on these flights, but they charge ridiculous amounts for things other airlines provide for free - $45 for a carry on bag, $5 for water on the flight, etc. Also, they don't provide the comfort or convenience of other airlines. For example, the seats don't recline, there is no wifi, there are no movie screens... If you're flying with no baggeage on a short flight and don't care how uncomfortable it is, go for it. As for me, I'll stick with Delta or United."
Pros: "But the flight from tampa to houston was delayed like purgatory and the rest was hell. Hell. Took me two days to dig upwards. That's not the spirit kids."
Cons: "Nothing is complimentary, all snacks and drinks for purchase are inexcusably expensive when other companies provide for free, hefty fee for checked bags and carry-on 40-50$ paid to and from which makes up the difference for their cheap flights (not much cheaper than JetBlue or American) my luggage was left in the city I was visiting and when I asked for a refund for my returning checked bag fee, I was denied because I paid cash at check-in and it wasn't on my reservation (obviously I had paid to have it flown because it was supposed to go on board). All in all terrible experience and not worth the 25$ travel voucher I received--which doesn't even cover cost of luggage 1-way--because I'll honestly never fly spirit again."
Pros: "aircrew was nice"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and no Spirit Airlines employees around to provide answers to angry/concerned costumers."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. The same thing happened last time I flew with you, then I was stuck at the airport for 6 or 7 hours. This time the delay was 5 hours. I will never consider flying with Spirit again and have told everyone I know the same."
Cons: "Smooth service"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We boarded late because the prior flight was late. We taxied out to a spot in the airport and sat for 3 hours. At 2 hours we got a small glass of water. We returned to the gate and the flight was canceled. We waited in line for an hour to get a refund.... there was absolutely nothing to like about this experience."
Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "This airline is the worst. 3 delays there 3 delays back. they give you excuses like weather but the other airlines are on time."
Cons: "Over priced, instead of charging one rate and include the standards, a seat, a carry on, everything was a fee! Then the flight is delayed and there was no way to find information on line, had to drive to the airport to find the counter closed, and there was no way of making my connection, decided not to fly at all on this airline and bought a ticket someplace else. Am hoping to get a refund for all the expenses, but I have been trying to cancel the flight, and now the website doesn't seem to be working. Keeps telling me to try again!!"
Pros: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was listed on time until 20 minutes before boarding when it was delayed. The plane had not even left the prior airport at that time. There was no communication from the airline when our flight was cancelled. Then the customer service on the phone was horrible and they offered no additional compensation for our time wasted. The lady at the airport desk was also misleading and manipulative. Will never be riding spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is perhaps the worst commercial airline out there, I'm surprised you list them on Kayak. From carry on fee, to no TSA precheck, or the worst of all, zero priority at the airport and the distinct possibility that your flight will be cancelled while all other airlines takeoff on time, I did everything I could do to get out of my ticket. On my way to the airport I called Spirit to ask why I couldn't enter my known traveler number but quickly hung up when I was warned that connecting with one of their personnel would cost me $25 - great customer service. After pleading with the ticketing agent in Atlanta I was lucky enough to be refunded the ticket price ($35+) and the bag fee ($45), and run to the Delta desk to buy a $360 one way ticket (worth every penny). I would love for Kayak to cover the difference in fare that I had to pay due in order to avoid the nightmare/death trap that I learned Spirit is, but at a minimum I feel Kayak should refund me the $9+ that they pocketed from this flight I was fortunate enough to avoid."
Pros: "Quick. Organized."
Cons: "Don't see how you can ask to rate food or entertainment when there was none."
Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact there were absolutely no snacks"
Pros: "all enjoyable"
Pros: "Non-stop flight was a plus"
Cons: "Seats too close together"
Cons: "I will NEVER get on a Spirit Airline flight for the rest of my life and I will suggest the same to every family member, friend and stranger I meet. I'm surprised this cheap-ass company doesn't charge you a dime because you wear shoes and you must wear them. Possibly the most disgusting experience of my life."
Pros: "The flight from Atlanta was fine considering some bad weather nearby.. Need an N/A Category for the above survey. Did not partake in the food and what entertainment??"
Cons: "The ticket counter was horrible. They had two lines to access the ticket counter with two small signs. The lines were actually spilling over to an adjoining Alaska ticket counter. If someone was at the entrance to the ticket area, a LOT of questions and confusion could have been eliminated. A flight for Boston was leaving with the half hour so they moved those individuals to an area next to Alaska and devoted 2 agents to take care of them. Unfortunately the line next to me, which was supposed to be for just checking bags had 4 agents accommodating that line and the other 2 agents were dedicated to the Boston flight. End result was both my flight to Tampa and the Boston were delayed for over an hour anyway. Of course the flight information boards did not reflect the changes and the gate attendants did not communicate as to what was happening. Delta would have been cheaper as Spirit charges for everything....As a first time traveler of Spirit, NEVER AGAIN...."
Pros: "This was an excellent price to pay for a visit to my sister and brother in law who recently relocated in Tmpa Fla. My son lives in Cleveland so the Spirit flight was a perfect fit for making it possible to visit two close family members for a low low price. The fact that Spirit flies non- stop form Cleveland to Tampa is an added bonus. The luggage restrictions are fair for these prices. People complain about the space between seats but it sure beats 24 hours in a car seat!! I like the fact that the seats don't recline. This gives everyone a fair share of space."
Cons: "The flight was first delayed for 3 hours because the airplane had not arrived; and then as soon as it arrived, the flight was cancelled with no explanation as to why."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Did not take the flight due to one and half hour delay, forcing me to cancel scheduled appointments in Tampa."
Pros: "The price was attractive. Too bad it was fruitless."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, I was informed that my flight was canceled. They robotically said that the next flight isn't until over a week later (well after my scheduled vacation ends), and offered a refund as the only thing they could do. Frankly, a refund is literally the least they could do; there was no effort put into finding an alternate flight or offering other means of compensation for the inconvenience. Had I been in charge of this, I probably would have offered at least a voucher for a discounted future flight, so as to promote further patronage. When I asked why it had been canceled, they said some ambiguous nonsense about security in Fort Myers. When I then called Spirit Airlines, they said it was due to weather. Furthermore, the agent on the phone was equally unhelpful and uncaring as those in person. She explained that because I accepted the refund, there's nothing else they can offer. I tried to explain that those at the counter gave me a refund because it was the only option. In short, this was my first experience with Spirit, and I got the distinct impression that they had no interest in customer satisfaction whatsoever; they are solely in it for the monetary exchange. Once that transaction is complete, they want to be rid of you."
Cons: "When talking to customer service regarding inability to check in online, I was unable to understand the second representative because of such a thick accent."
Cons: "if the plane had not been an hour late, this Spirit flight would have rated "OKAY". first time with them, and they lived up to their "a la carte" rep. i am sure i am not the first person to joke about this, but i was shocked that i didn't have to slip a fiver into a slot in order to use the toilet. with all the add-ons, there is absolutely no benefit price-wise to flying with them. if you are carrying one small item, traveling alone, not in a hurry, i bet you'd love 'em. but any normal adult would feel cramped/gouged/abused. what a weird business model - folksy/hip/sarcastic ad copy that jokes about the lousy treatment you can expect to receive. such is the new economy."
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Spirit lost our luggage after they forced us to pay over $100.00 for baggage expenses. My bride and I had medications, gifts and clothes needed for this holiday trip, Since this incident, we had to cancel plans and spend additional money, This is completely unacceptable. We will be looking into filing complaints with the federal trade commission, the attorney general, better business bureau to name a few."
