Love the experience, a little bummed about the AA flights. Its great to have more flexibility with times, but its not the same customer experience. (Mix of snacks, entertainment, free wifi. It seems more of a benefit in terms of experience for AA customers now flying JetBlue that the other way around
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was perfect."
Pros: "This time NOTHING"
Cons: "Plane seats weren’t cleaned well. I wiped my chair, tray, window and wipe was all grey/brown dirty. Yuck! Very disappointing jetBlue. You used to be my favorite but no more. 2.5 hour of delay to pick someone special to board the plane. Ridiculous! 2.5 hour of delay and excuse was navigation not working you have to pick paperwork however picking paperwork took 1.5 hour? You think people will believe this while you get this special person to just walk in and board the plane on the (exit) seats 4 rows had been kept empty just for him. I demand my money back. Poor poor poor service JetBlue"
Pros: "Very helpful, very considerate."
Cons: "Better ventilation, less announcements."
Pros: "The seats were great and the crew was also good."
Cons: "The sound system at the seat I was assigned was not operational."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Everything was fabulously executed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing flight was fast and seats are comfy"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Food options & Entertainment"
Cons: "schedule, food, personal so bad"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5hrs plus 1hr on tarmac. Crew was visibly agitated and annoyed at their jobs. JetBlue didn’t not apologize for the 3.5hr delay once. I know their might weather and other problems but no one actually bother to explain why in total the flight was delayed by 3.5hrs. No one."
Pros: "Jet blue has better leg space than many other domestic flights I have taken. It was very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times. We had to cancel other reservations and wasted a day traveling instead of a quick 4 hr plane ride."
Pros: "It was good. People were accommodating."
Pros: "Loved the variety of food offered, amount of legroom"
Cons: "Was awake, just completely skipped over by attendant for drinks"
Cons: "Seats... had a middle seat and crew would not move me to emergency exit row even when there was room there!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "Communication about the delay Snacks has no variety. All too salty."
Pros: "Nothing! The flight was delayed until 10:34pm and still we did not board the plane at that time. Then when we finally board the plane a crew member Dan told me my luggage was to big which it was not, and when we landed in Puerto Rico I had to wait so long to get my luggage from the carousel."
Pros: "My flight was on time and arrived early."
Pros: "The flight was great, the crew was also great. We landed a half hour early which was even better! JetBlue has always been my favorite airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff, informed during wait on runwayabout when /why take off delayed, quick exit."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "There were no problems"
Cons: "Flight attendant had an attitude"
Pros: "JetBlue staff did keep us updated on the delay."
Cons: "I was second person in group C for boarding and they get checked my bag when there were plenty of people behind me in the last 2 groups."
Cons: "Flight was delayed at departure. Long taxying to gate on tarmac. Restless children onboard. Was happy when door opened and fresh air came in. Staff was very courteous giving the circumstances of a lot of spillage by passengers of snacks brought onboard."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and now sitting on the tarmac at my destination airport for half an hour and counting (at 12:30 AM) because of an outbound Jet Blue flight? My flights coming in last week via Jet Blue were also delayed, causing me to miss my connection and spend a day in the airport. Hate this airline and will absolutely pay more to never fly them again."
Pros: "The flight took off on time and maybe even early and was early arriving even though it had to divert a little to avoid the hurricane. Everything seemed to run more efficiently because more extraordinary measures were being taken to keep flights running and on time. I was impressed."
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Cons: "I believed that animals should not travel with people I had to switch seat with someone because I m extremely allergic to cats. So I had to seat in the back of plane to avoid a health problem. I think if people have the need to take their pets with them they should have a designated area. Not everyone love or like animals. Thank you"
Pros: "Every service is great"
Cons: "There is nothing not to like"
Cons: "TV didn’t work on our row but without asking they offered $15 credit per seat"
Cons: "The seats barely reclined it was very uncomfortable and the entertainment was not the best"
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Cons: "Almost all JetBlue employees I encountered were rude - yes I know they were frustrated with flight delays because of system failure, but at least y’all are paid. The terminal was dirty, crowded, and everything was shutting down even though people we still looking for food, beverages, Etc (so passengers make sure you are fed / prepared if you’re flying late out of Newark). There was miscommunication from almost every step and even on the play, delays were not conveyed. I’ll definitely avoid booking this flight with the airline & airport moving forward."
Pros: "Seating was fine, flight attendants were very nice. It was a short flight and everyone worked to be efficient about boarding once the plane was ready for boarding."
Cons: "I wish the plane had come on time--the delay was inconvenient, although I understand sometimes the reason for delay can't be helped."
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "Crew couldn't be nicer. A pleasant experience. Thank you."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The shotness of the crew and all the noise slamming around the compartments being slammed contnuously and angrily"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful as usual. There was a fair amount of leg room and overall space."
Cons: "One thing that has always made JetBlue stand out has been the customer service. I get pretty motion sick on flights, especially on an empty stomach, so the snacks and meals at mealtimes have always made this my favorite airline. There was none of that this time around. It feels like JetBlue is letting itself turn into just another commercial airline - over priced flights and amenities for overrated service and a lack of care for the consumer. Not to mention we were late"
Pros: "Love the free wifi. Plenty of room even in a regular middle seat. Nice to have a lavatory in the front of the plane for all to use."
Pros: "So much delays. 3 hour delay should entitle us with satisfactional offers."
Cons: "I was exhausted due to 3 hour delay."
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Pros: "Nice flight, exited the plane quickly"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was in Class D, I boarded the plane after many people and there was zero space for my carry on- which contains medical equipment, and I was forced to put it below. The overhead compartments are teeny tiny, and when other people shove all their bags in there, there's no room for other people's single carry ons."
Cons: "Not enough wheel chairs, barely made flight, seating was more cramped than usual."
Pros: "The crew was great , the flight attendants we're helpful and the snacks were good! Loved that I had wifi."
Cons: "Wifi kept shutting off and the channels on the TV were not working. The flight was delayed and we did not get off the plane until 20 minutes after landing due to air traffic."
Cons: "my entertainment screen was messed up, no sirius xm and video programs blacked out, plus brightness control graphic would not go off screen. Flight was late, again. Piece of used chewing gum was stuck under armrest handle."
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"
Cons: "We were ridiculously delayed for 3 hours while other flights that I know of flying united who also had flights coming from the south were only delayed 30 minutes. I am a medical student, I had an exam the next day and this really made me livid because out of all the airlines, I chose jetfblue because I knew I could count it. I guess I can now say, every airline has screwed me over."
Pros: "From boarding to arrival the experience was very good."
Pros: "JetBlue gave each passenger a $150 credit"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 5.5 hours. We had a 6:45 pm reservation that didn't leave till 12:15 AM. We got home Monday morning at 4 am. Normally it wouldn't be "terrible" but my son was starting a new position that Monday. I learned my lesson, don't book the last flight out. I just don't understand why they didn't get new equipment and a new crew sooner. As it was they had to fly in a different plane in and flew up a crew from Ft. Lauderdale who flew us home to Ft. Lauderdale. I'm still not sure what caused this problem."
La puntualidad debe ser respetada
Cons: "I’ll fly United anytime"
Pros: "Well I like the that I was allowed to pre board because I had a 1 year old with me."
Cons: "My one year old was a lap baby. There was virtually no space between the front seat and mine. This made flying very uncomfortable for both me and my daughter."
Cons: "It was a mess from start to finish. Ridiculous lines. Ridiculous covid rules. They have us all shoulder to shoulder in tiny waiting areas then suddenly we get on line to board and have to stand six feet apart and then on the plane we are squashed all together anyway. It’s all so stupid. Not having the ability to get a boarding pass from the online app or printed made me have to wait in a line 300 people long to access the kiosk and then half of them were down. Then another line maybe 500 people long just to be allowed up the escalator to where there is another line to go through exuding checks. Nuts!!! My flight was an hour and I spent three hours online getting to it!!!"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour and spent most of it taxiing."
Cons: "Telling the truth"
Cons: "Over 2 hours delayed for no notable reason"
Pros: "Good plane, seats are OK even though do not recline that much"
Cons: "Crew in the airport and in the plane not friendly, very long delay (3h) and not even a drink or something to eat whilst waiting, no excuse for 3h delay from crew when boarding/leaving ..."
Pros: "United has done a lot to update and modernize their terminals. Easy access to food, charging outlets, comfortable seating, and an open atmosphere made my layover quite pleasant."
Pros: "Nice quick flight staff great and very helpful!"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t free"
Pros: "Very fast and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours, also the personal at Newark airport was a little bit harsh and not very helpful, I do not care about any compensation, nevertheless the personal has to treat better to the clients"
Cons: "I have a carry on bag. & when I was boarding the bag was checked because there wasn’t enough overhead room. I was in back of plane & there was plenty of room. I think you should be more careful about space deciditions. I bought specific luggage so I would’ve to check it!!!"
Cons: "Flight delay ,almost two hours. Have a chance to change to another flight with empty seats , not alowed"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave at noon. We were delayed for 2.5 hours due to incoming flights, which were delayed. Finally they told us to board at 4 pm. Once everyone was on board, they told us we "lost" our pilot and we had to get off the plane. Thirty minutes later, they "found" a new pilot and boarded us on the plane. We then sat on the plane for 4 hours because there was a system issue and the pilots didn't have our flight plan. At 8 pm, the pilot got off the plane, and new pilots came aboard. Finally, the plane left at 9:30 pm. We never received food vouchers, water, snacks during the delay. The pilot insisted the last delay was due to a system issue, the crew told us it was because of weather. In the end, I think they were all lying to us and they had no intention of leaving on time and just made excuses. We lost a whole day in Bermuda because of their lies. I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time!"
Cons: "Plane was equipped with Direct TV but the TVs were not powered on and that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Kiosk help at Newark very annoyed to be helping me"
Pros: "I guess the flight was ok. The pilot knew where he was going"
Cons: "It can't be true that they have not even a small blanket for someone who kindly ask and then when the flight is over you see them every where and unopened in first class. Pretzels,... Seriously..???. These airlines are n need of a real policy that lets them know it is money we are expending when we take a flight. And taking the carry-on bag. AFTER YOU PAID TO HABE IT WITH YOU?? Unacceptable. And not seating people together after you call and re call and talk to 3 different persons... The last one just says: I will see what can be done and then ignores you... Not NICE. Please remember that many airlines have come and go. Those are some of the reasons."
Pros: "The crew was very swift in resolving the issue and getting us on another aircraft."
Cons: "Hated that we had to unboard for something as simple as radio/printer connection. I had other arrangements at the time I was supposed to land."
Cons: "The lady at the counter for checking the bags at newark was not rude but not very friendly. She could have done better if she was not that serious. Besides that everything was good."
Pros: "I didnt care for anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. There were no chargers at any seat in Coach."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for man hours. First Class cabin was a disgrace - old seats, no padding, plane appeared dirty."
Pros: "This was a direct red eye flight to Madrid"
Cons: "I paid 1308$ for the tickets, I wasn't expecting first class experience but honestly I was just shocked. First off the flight attendant was so rude, whenever I asked for something or said thank you she would just stare at me and not respond. I mean I get it, it's a red eye flight I wasn't expecting anyone to be chipper. But honestly that was especially rude having to deal with her for the 6 hour trip to Madrid. Second the food was especially disgusting. The chicken was in this white sauce that looked like discharge and if taste like rubber. The bread was hard to bite into. Everything was so stale and tasted so bad I wondered how long they had that food sitting there. My last trip to Europe I flew Swiss air to Italy they had the best customer service and the food didn't taste like I was eating cardboard in jail. I am never flying united airlines to Europe again. It is too long of a trip for subpar service."
Cons: "Stuck on the runway for 25 min. And then after took another 20 minutes because they could not open the door to get into the airport from the plane to deplane. The staff was rude when boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hours because of the crew. Wouldn't it make sense that if the flight was scheduled to depart at a certain time, 5 minutes before that, still no crew, let the passengers know then? No. Not if you're United. They told us to wait 20 minutes, then after 30 minutes told us about the delay and the New departure time. But when that time arrived, still no Captain. Finally, after another 15 minutes, we're on the way. Except not quite. Now, they can't get the weight and logistics of the flight worked out. C'mon United, get it together!!"
Pros: "Safe Flight Awesome Trip in & out"
Cons: "No sunshine"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 4 hours. When I spoke to the person at he gate when we had to deboard, She was patient in explaining but didn't seem like she wanted to answer my questions in front of everyone else. I walked over to the United customer service desk. Wow. No sense of empathy whatsoever. They gave me the answers to my questions but I almost felt like I had done wrong asking what my options were. Never had an issue with Lufthansa. United customer service is a different story. I will try my best to avoid Lufthansa flights operated by United from now on."
Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Pros: "That we arrived alive."
Cons: "We weren't allowed to put our carryons in the overhead. We were forced to put them under the seat in front of us because the plane was full. This left no place for our feet or stretching our legs. The seats were cramped so closely together, our knees touched the seat pocket in front of us. When putting down the tray table, it pressed against our stomachs. The landing was the worst and scariest one I've experienced in over 40 yrs of frequent flying. We hit so fast and hard that the plane teetered from one wheel to the other and fish tailed so hard that people's necks were hurt. If possible, I'll never fly United again."
Pros: "The flight was fast."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 10 hours for no real reasoning and nobody was compensated for anything."
Pros: "Staff on board was great"
Cons: "I brought a carry on and had to check it because I was in group. I was not happy. It took 25 minutes for the first piece of luggage to arrive and of course our bags. Last on the plane took a while."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that you had to pay to watch movies"
Cons: "What ever happened to leg room? And I know that real food is a thing of the past on airplanes, but at least Jet Blue provides snacks that occupy more than one mouthful"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding at the gate"
Cons: "Tight seats. Slow service on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing.was a terrible flight"
Cons: "Everything , delays , poor food , was horrible"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The airport was horrible. Hard to get to the C concourse. "train" is TOO SMALL. It barely fits 10 in each car. International transfer of bags was Horrible, and very far apart from where you get the bags. Poorly planned or not at all planned. We barely had time to make the flight with 1 1/2 hours to transfer and would have missed our flight if it wasn't for a trolley driver who took us from security to the gate. There is no power at the seats. The plane is old and seats were very uncomfortable. Yeah, this was the worst flight."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing for this flight. Delayed, rude crew, seat assignment mess up, etc."
Cons: "No food in a previous 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight. Very uncomfortable plane! Asking to pay for entertainment Direct TV, are you kidding me??? Those tickets are not cheap and you can't provide entertainment? Charging for everything extra is outrageous. Crew was a bit rude. And the people at the counter at the gate -very rude and unhelpful. Flight delayed on Christmas night and no refund for all that time wasted without being with the family. I had seats together with my husband and then seats were removed, asked to see an agent when printed boarding pass and then got separate seats. You are a joke and do not respect the money we pay and prearranged seat assignments. United you are a terrible airline, please strive for better customer service. You charge a lot."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"
Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "That they took my take in luggage & had me put it aside to out in the belly of the plane. I had my laptop & iPad in there. It happened so fast I didn't think to take them out. I was planning to do some work on the plane but couldn't since u took my laptop. Also, they changed the gate and no one told us. We were lucky we asked a question to find out the gate had been changed."
Pros: "Left right on time."
Pros: "I am Brenda Crooks, Zachary's mom. I am the one that actually took the trip. I went to Connecticut to see my son, Samuel, get his white coat for medical school. I will never forget my experience in Newark, New Jersey. I met a wonderful woman named Yevette who checked in my luggage. She is to be commended on going above and beyond the call of duty. I don't know her last name. She knew I was very upset because I was leaving my 22 year old baby in Connecticut. She sympathized and comforted me. She put her arms around me and assured me that everything was going to be alright. She is a wonderful woman with a big heart. She is the true meaning of a lady. I will never forget her and thank her so very much for being so gracious and kind to me."
Cons: "I ended up changing my flight in Newark airport to Fort Lauderdale that landed earlier that the one they gave me up in Scraton.."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."
Pros: "My flight was overbooked, and I was in one of the later boarding groups. When I got on the plane, someone else was in my seat, and apparently had been told by the crew to sit there. There were no extra seats visible. Clearly upset, a very nice flight attendant brought me back to the galley and chatted with me (not reacting negatively to my less-than-stellar attitude given the situation) while another went to "handle it." Not sure what magic she worked, but I ended up with a window seat in an exit row with lots of leg room. An unfortunate situation was handled very well and I'm really appreciative!"
Cons: "I couldn't get the WiFi to work and my seat didn't recline (because it was an exit row)."
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was too cramped. Passengers behind us were rude. Kept kicking backseat all flight (and there were no kids). Little uncomfortable for new plane"
Cons: "Everything seemed to go well until my daughter had to go to the bathroom, we were sitting in the front area but they blocked it cause the pilot was in the bathroom. Which was fine, but a few minutes past and still nothing the she said you can go to the back so i got up and she yelled maam “ you need to sit down” and then she proceeded to speak in Spanish as i didnt understand english. So I explained firmly that I u derstood her but she just told us to go the back and then to sit so which one is it."
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Snacks were worth the money. Boarding was quick and easy. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats were awful. Hard, tight, uncomfortable, cheap."
Cons: "Restroom did not have water."
Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."
Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."
Pros: "I like to reach final destination"
Cons: "Awful service, unless you purchase ,not even bottle water available. You probably would find this kind of service In remote areas of the world. Seats are so small that kids only would fit. Brand new plane ,but design to accommodate minimum, comfort, not for Adult. Shows disrespect passengers."
Cons: "Everything. The baggage policy is terrible. The flight service is terrible. The comfort is terrible. Definitely the worst airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "Nothing to like about Spirit"
Cons: "Everything. It's not a secret"
Pros: "Crew were customer friendly despite 3 hour delay before boarding and 3 hour wait at gate for deicing"
Cons: "Cancelled flight... conditions did not warrant the need to get flight out in middlenof winter storm"
Pros: "My seat selection was great on leg room"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow seating is one on top of the other"
Pros: "The crew was amazing ! They Made sure all passengers was safe and provided a lot of comfort."
Cons: "For me being a first time traveler, I expected more leg room with me being six feet tall . Check in prices were a little unfair ."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "It was ridiculous that after buy our tickets we had to pay to pick our plane seats... Also, we have to pay 60 dollars to carry on our bags... I Spirit charge you for everything, even chips and Pepsi we had to buy it on the plane..."
Pros: "Tix weren’t expensive, flight left pretty much on time (couple mins late) no major complaints other than the seat size, but knew they’re on the smaller side when booking. Didn’t eat but snacks looked pretty standard fare and well priced."
Cons: "Seats are pretty tiny, and my booty fell asleep cause not much cushioning in the seat, unfortunately the bigger front seats were booked already. No entertainment available unless you consider the free massage from a 4 year old kicking the back of my seat."
Cons: "I didn’t like that not even water was complimentary and that they tried to sell anything extra that they could."
Pros: "I was give seat 26A. I am a small woman seated next to two small women, we were crammed in to tight. Also I do not like the way you are charged for ever enmity. The seat was dirty. There was trash from the prior inhabitant smashed behind the tray table. The bathroom was disorderly it was out of toilet paper and tissues. The stewardess thought she was a stand up comedian. She was dissing her employer. Pointing out that nothing is free on Spirit airlines. Making a bad situation feel worse."
Cons: "It was on time. All the other attendants other than the comedian were very nice."
Cons: "I did not like that you can’t select any seats without a pay."
Pros: "Plane departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I have flown on a lot of budget airlines, both domestically and internationally, but this was my first time flying with Spirit....and it will be my last. I am used to the a la carte pricing and know how to avoid additional charges, so I wasn't expecting anything different than usual. What I wasn't prepared for were the smallest seats I have ever seen. Granted, I am 6'2", but these seats cannot be anything but pure torture to anyone over 5'9". If you're shorter, maybe it's worth it, but I can't guarantee it. But, if you're 6' or taller, I would recommend you avoid regardless of how much cheaper the flight is; It's not worth it."
Pros: "The airline changed the flight to 2 hours earliet without any warning. When we called they said they didnt have my email, but they had emailed me my itinerary, so this was untrue. Missed the flight and had to stay overnight at a hotel in nyc at my own expense."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The child in the lap of the person next to me was 100% older than 12 months. She was using her mom and the seat in front of her as a jungle gym. The seat was very uncomfortable, the tray table wasn’t big enough to fit an iPad. A laptop was impossible."
Cons: "First of all they charge ridiculous fees for luggage seat selection and more. Then they forced me to check my carry on sized suitcase. Not only did I have to inconveniently check my bag but when I got home I noticed quite a few items missing from my luggage. I filed a complaint as soon as I noticed and no one responded to me. Then I called and they told me to call both airports. Each airport (both spirit airline employees) told me to call the other airport. Not only can they "not" help me but not a single person apologized or tried to be accommodating that one or more of their employees is stealing from their passengers. At least an apology and a "we are going to get this taken care of" sense of mentality could be reciprocated to me. Not only this but the seats are extremely uncomfortable and delayed take off time."
Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 17 hours, for no reason except "air traffic", when we were the only flight apparently experiencing a delay of more than 1.5 hours. Terrible. I canceled my trip."
Cons: "Too much information/forms while checking in and have to pay for luggage which is expensive."
Pros: "The crew was great and did their best to make the flight smooth. The plane was a pretty color yellow..."
Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous. If you check your bag, it's $52. If you carry on, it's $57. During the flight, you pay for any beverages or snacks. Also, we purchased our tickets together, obviously to be sat together. On our return flight, we were instructed to purchase seats if we wanted to be together, otherwise there were no assignments. We got charged an additional $40. Overall, we spent an additional $200! We chose this airline for the lower fares, but they get their money back by charging for everything. You pay for everything. I was very dissatisfied and likely to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Smooth landing and take off, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats were not too comfy"
Cons: "Very small seats"
Cons: "Luggage Charges are outrageous"
Pros: "Kind attendants"
Cons: "Too many "hidden" and extra costs"
Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Plane wing tip said howdy. Few was great"
Cons: "Looking back it was what I expected. Great for short flights"
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "All the extra fees. Carry on, seat assignment. I choose not to pay for seat assignment so I was in the very back row"
Pros: "Of the five flights it took for me to get to and from Las Vegas, I met one pleasant flight attendant and 2 pleasant ticketing personnel, all other Spirit employees couldn't have cared less."
Cons: "Every single departure was delayed - the shortest delay was one hour others were 3 hrs and 7 hrs and the ripple effects from these delays meant missing connecting flights.. overnight stays at the airport.. missing days of work... I fly a lot, delays are common, but not every single flight in one trip. Most delays are also due to factors beyond the control of the airline. Only one departure delay on this trip fell into this category... Air Force-one delayed the entire airport - understandable. All others were caused by ineptness on the part of Spirit airline staff and poor business practice and airline policy. For example, delayed departure caused many of our flight's passengers to miss a connecting flight. Many of us had checked bags. All of use were booked on the next available flight the next morning. Our bags were not moved onto that flight. This is frustrating but almost understandable, what's not understandable is that the airline staff had no idea what to do about this situation. Multiple staff members said they didn't know what we should do about the bags and suggested talking to other staff members. Eventually we were told to go pick them up ourselves and take them as carry-ons on the next flight (fortunately my bag was small enough to be a carry-on, others were not)... this meant leaving TSA and the comfort of the terminal to go get the bag. Then couldn't get back in through TSA because my ticket still said I had a checked bag, not a carry on. I then had to wait another hour in line to get it changed to say carry-on. Then of course, couldn't get back through TSA into the terminal because my new flight wasn't until the next day so I had to sleep outside the terminal at the baggage carousel. Of course no meal vouchers were given, no hotel stay... just kicked to the curb. This also happened on another return flight - fortunately the delay, which was caused by the pilot not showing up on time, was during the day, so we didn't have to sleep outside.. no meal vouchers were given for this 7 hour delay. All of this and more might have been somewhat acceptable if the flight had actually been cheaper then other flights... Not the case. Although the list price of the ticket was about $30 cheaper then the direct American Airlines flight my co-workers took for the same trip. Their flight included a personal item and a carry-on bag in the price. Spirit allows one personal item and charges $50 - $60 for carry-ons.. $40-$50 for checked bags. After the disaster of given them my suitcase as a checked bag, I decided to go Carry-on on the next flight. Spirit also charges for anything on the flight... even water (water=$3). To top it off.. Spirit airlines has as little legroom as any other airline (Other then Jet Blue witch has the most standard legroom)... but Spirit has the cheapest seats I've ever seen on an airplane.. They actually don't recline and there is not entertainment on the plane... by no entertainment, I mean not even a magazine :)"
Cons: "I got over 100 emails stating that the flight is delayed every other minute"
Cons: "On a 3 day trip I had a total of 9 hours in delays on 2 flights- and a canceled flight! They do not email or text you at all- not even the usual courtesy email most airlines send letting you know its almost time to fly, or check-in online. They never alert changes to flights. It's like they want you to miss the flight. Second time in 5 years booking with them and last time was just as bad. If you want to make your destinations on time- don't risk booking with Spirit."
Pros: "Staff was great. Boarding and take off efficient and on time. OK for short flights"
Cons: "Hard seats. Baggage check WAY too expensive."
Pros: "The plane left on time."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "I liked that the wing said Howdy."
Cons: "Spirit is the absolute WORST airline on the market. The seats are so tiny, the airline attendants were incredibly rude. My flight home was canceled after they made us wait on the airplane for over 3 hours. They did not tell us what had happened or give us any kind of update during the time period. The flight was canceled and they were extremely unhelpful. I ended up purchasing a ticket through JetBlue to get home finally. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. You should be ashamed to work for this company."
Cons: "Parking rates are super high, bag rates are by far the worst. How do you charge people 50 to 57 dollars on any bag no matter the size. I had two small rolling bags which I never pay for on other airlines and end up spending the amount of a round trip ticket to check them in. Also you delay my flight almost 3 hours and compensate nothing. Not even a free drink aboard the plane. Three dollars for small bottle of water and five dollars for a muffin and we are forced to pay for drinks when we cant bring our own. The staff had no knowledge of anything and non accomidating. The plane offered the most flat and uncomfortable seating and no movies to keep kids quiet. I will never buy a trip from spirit again. I have a pre booked trip for august with spirit but will cancel due to my experience . I felt I was at a medicaid office from begining to end. Ps I also have to pay for my bags when I return 200+ on bags is rediculous."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that the flight was gonna be delayed! Waited over an hour being lied to every couple of minutes that we ready to board and nothing happened !!! Last time I fly with this airlines and will definitely let others know my experience terrible terrible !"
Pros: "Staff were very nice and considerate"
Cons: "My experience was terrible. Flight to my destination was cancelled but I was able to book with a different airline which went smooth. Flight leaving my destination was delayed 4 times nobody could give any exact answer on why we were delayed. I also was charged more then I expected for my carry on bag. I can't see myself ever booking with spirit again."
Cons: "The cost for a carry on was $55 and to check it in was $50. I thought it would be better to check in my small carry on - mistake! The baggage claim was very disorganized and took about 20 mins to get my bag."
Cons: "To many money for bags"
Pros: "Fantastic cree"
Cons: "No entertainment, not even an outlet to plug my headphones into. That would have been ideal."
Pros: "Only good thing was the constant notifications of the delayed flight statuses keeping us somewhat in the loop."
Cons: "4 hour wait to board. No food. Everything on the flight (including water at $3 a pop) had a price. You would think waiting 4 hours to board a plane that at least peanuts were offered for free."
Cons: "So cheap they don't even give coffee. They use industrial paper towels instead of napkins. If I'd known they charged for carry-on luggage, I would have booked elsewhere as it killed the price advantage. Worst of all, they kept serving alcohol to clearly intoxicated loud and vulgar men making for a really objectionable atmosphere for everyone within many rows' distance."
Pros: "Just what i need from traveling."
