Pros: "Just overall solid experience, especially considering how terrible other airlines have become"
Read more about JetBlue
Pros: "Just overall solid experience, especially considering how terrible other airlines have become"
Cons: "Although the space around the seat is acceptable, the seats bottoms are horrible. It feels like sitting on a bench seat. It really needs more cushion."
Pros: "Great legroom. Got in a bit early which was fantastic. Appreciated a mid-flight update from the pilot."
Cons: "Earphone jack did not work so I couldn’t listen to any movies or shows — shouldn’t sell a seat on a 5 hour flight if entertainment isn’t working. Plane also felt like it could have been cleaner."
Cons: "More complimentary food options given it’s a 6 and a half hour flight."
Pros: "The colors"
Cons: "THERE ARE ONLY 1-2 STAFF MEMEBRS AT TERMINAL 5 JFK (busiest ailier in the world) for 309+ passengers an hour that’s not enough. I booked with you guys and paid extra money for worthless travels, but no. Never again with JetBlue"
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."
Pros: "Easy going boarding, easy going staff, excellent amenities with personal large size video screen, elegant cabin with cool blue light and with accessible self-serving snacks and drinks and just overall very clean modern plane"
Cons: "All the other airlines"
Pros: "Studios were nice."
Cons: "Was expecting to buy a meal and only could purchase the snacks. Movie screen is very out dated."
Pros: "Charging port, tv with lots of options like music, tv, and movies. free snacks and beverages."
Cons: "delays and gate was switched last minute and I wasn't notified so was very close to missing my flight"
Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings. I can’t emphasize enough how much that will affect my travel choice and I am not even a person of big built."
Cons: "The head rest did not have the bending capability so the head can’t rest comfortably to either side while sleeping."
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Cons: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was near the bathroom.. stank a bit"

Pros: "love that each seat now has a USB connection to charge your phone"

Pros: "Delta personel were wonderful and helpful both flights"

Cons: "My entertainment video player had a bad earphone jack so i could not watch movies or tv and resorted to paying for wifi"
Cons: "I've tried to respond twice now with a long detailed answer only to get booted out of the page. In short you and are criminals that ripped me off for over 430 dollars U.S. will never use you again"
Pros: "The crew was probably the only positive thing of the flight."
Cons: "Late boarding because of downsizing plane and overbooking, than sitting on a plane for an additional hour after boarding completed while it was very hot inside. Departed and landed with a delay. Very old airplane with no individual fans above the seats, no outlets to charge devices and no entertainment system."
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Cons: "Can’t charge devices. Have to pay for watching movies. Pay for suitcase!"
Pros: "Short flight, nothing to do with airline"
Cons: "Boarding was annoying and employees were rude. Had just gotten off of a connecting United flight and one of the employees barked at me that my carry on was too big and I had to close extra zipper even though I had no issues in the United flight I had just gotten off of......... I was starving and didn’t get a chance to grab food due to short layover time. We took a while to take off. We’re supposed to leave at 4:15 and left closer to 5pm. Then when we were on the air, flight attendants took a while to provide the snacks and water and they didn’t even get around to our row before they had to sit down for touch down. Smh. Terrible and thoughtless. Seats were uncomfortable and very little leg space. Entertainment only works if you’re able to download their app and of course no free WiFi because airlines want to force you to spend more money after you’ve spent a large amount to fly to your destination."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Pros: "It was my first time flying United Airlines and I was satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend this airline. Everyone was very courteous and available to answer questions."
Cons: "I've never flown with this company before this trip and there's a lot that I learned: 1) Expect cancelled or delayed flights 2) Do not expect any form of compensation for lost time (unless you are aggressive and demand it, but I'm not good at being mean) 3) Do not expect friendly costumer service 4) Flight >5 hours, only expect 1 drink 5) Do not expect your Gate listed on your ticket to be correct. Always check the airport TVs, since they don't announce gate changes at your terminal. 6) You will have plenty of miserable stories to share with your fellow miserable airplane companions. 7) Just don't do it. Save yourself travel stress and go with another airline. 8) I'm not kidding... I was stranded in an airport for 11.5 hours, and lost 1 full day of my vacation due to 2 cancellations."
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Cons: "we Had more space as far as seating on our way out but our flight back seemed like a tighter squeeze. But every thing else was good."
Cons: "Heartless, inconsiderate, rude people from start to finish. Will never fly with Spirit again."
Pros: "It had some space"
Cons: "I did not like Paying $47 for a little tiny carry on"
Pros: "Friendliness On time"
Cons: "Seats offer too little was not good compared to that served on competitors carriers."
Pros: "The airport, before I got onto my flight. I'm glad spirit allowed me extra time to spend in the airport after the flight was delayed. Surprise."
Cons: "All of it. What was advertised: cheap seats and you pay for everything (checked bag and even WATER). What wasn't advertised (or was, in flight): for fifteen+ minutes the crew was selling a spirit credit card over the intercom. BLARING IT. It woke me up. Why sell more things where your prospective customers can't escape listening to the sales pitch? Terrible terrible business."
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "With Spirit airlines, I paid $57 for a carry on bag... They even charged for water... $18 to pick your seat or let them randomly pick your seat. Theres was I see now why the ticket, was cheap, because you pay for EVERYTHING else... And I do mean EVERYTHING! I normally fly with United, but I found this cheap ticket and got baited in. NEVER AGAIN!!!! Ill pay the extra money for comfort on a 5 hr flight. NEVER AGAIN SPIRIT!!!"
Cons: "They were several hours late which they blamed on construction at LAX"
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
