Pros: "Crew were very nice, snacks and drinks were very nice, good inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Our plane left 90 minutes late after sitting on the tarmac for an hour because there were NO PILOTS. Cmon. That’s absurd."
Cons: "Was told to get off plane after two hours with our luggage and then eventually got on plane and then waited at least a half hour to take off. On arrival at our destination we had to wait until a gate was available. We arrived almost four hours later. I had to cancel and rearrange my appointments. I don't even recall hearing I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Some kind of compensation should have been provided. Some kind of"
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Pros: "The crew and food was good"
Cons: "The over 2.5 hour delay, broken equipment"
Pros: "I enjoy flying jetblue, I am usually comfortable and i is a pleasant experience. The last two times I have flown, the flight has been delayed by at least an hour and a half and there has been something wrong with the sound to the movies. This flight my movie was staticky and had to jiggle my headphones for it to work although sometimes it still happened. My seat this last flight also was broken and I was unable to put my seat back which caused some back discomfort."
Cons: "I would choose jetblue again because of the other wonderful experiences I have had with you. The staff are usually very professional and courteous and the comfort is usually better than anyone else. Thanks."
Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Woman wth a dog wouldn’t take it off her lap. Delayed for an hour dealing with it. On top of being delayed 90 minutes for no reason."
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: "Flight attendant was very nice despite appearing a bit overworked and frazzled."
Cons: "We were over 30 min late taking off because the pilots were late from another flight and people wouldn't listen to crew instructions to sit down. Monitors wouldn't work for entertainment. That didn't really bother me, but it was an issue for the two people sitting in my row. We had paid $40 for even more, so I was surprised when the flight attendant wouldn't give my neighbor a complimentary pillow so he could rest since the monitor wouldn't work. Flight attendant said he would need to pay $5. I feel flight attendants should be given permission to change policy based on certain circumstances."
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "Plenty of legroom and I am 6 foot tall. Nonstop from Newark to Fort Myers Florida, on time."
Pros: "It was the very best ever. I loved the way they all took such good care of me"
Cons: "Flight was 2.5 hours late and then landed at the wrong terminal."
Pros: "Jetblue has consistently provided a great package. From efficiency, cleanliness and employee helpfulness. I trulyblu enjoy flying with them."
Cons: "Jetblue's concourse @ EWR could use a little love. But then again, I feel the entire airport could use some love...."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed regularly. The flight attendant was very good."
Cons: "My right elbow kept turning off the passenger’s tv next to me and the passenger on my left turned mine off twice!"
Pros: "Fast & efficient boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "Less than courteous customer service at FLL terminal that morning. Not sure if the personnel had not had their coffee yet, but 3 of 4 agents we encountered were not very friendly in the way they attempted to help us resolve a baggage situation. In the end we paid extra and carried on otherwise we would miss our flight. The TV screen on my seat did not work; thus no entertainment for me."
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: "The way in which they take and serve drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Due to weather we physically couldn't get to the airport on time. I am sooo glad you could get us on the next flight, and with seats together! NIIIICE!"
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment and cabin staff!!"
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: "My flight was delayed for over an hour Causing me to missing my first meeting"
Pros: "Crew was very personable and friendly- made the flight very enjoyable!"
Pros: "The sweet blues chips yummy"
Cons: "Tv was broke and it should be included"
Pros: "Service at the door to print out our baggage tix & boarding tic. Very efficient & helpful. Cordial staff at departing desk & in the air. Left on time & smooth landing."
Cons: "I had to use Ladies’ room soon after take off & they wouldn’t let me get up for 20 min. More. I would have gotten up at my own risk instead of waiting for no- seatbelt sign!!"
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."
Pros: "The boarding was very quick and easy, the crew were very pleasant and helpful, and I felt safe the entire flight. We arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "I wish there was more snack selection and a little more room in the sides (this I understand can’t be helped, but that is just my opinion). Other forms of entertainment, such as magazines or newspapers, even if outdated, would be a nice alternative for those who do not wish to purchase headphones."
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: "gate staff were accomodating, flight landed on time."
Cons: "Crew were rude and intimidating to a family with kids, including calling my wife a liar in front of them! Unconscionable. I thought JetBlue advertises unlimited snacks, but my daughter was told 'you've had enough' when she went for seconds. Our TV sets didn't work. Our baby spilled some chips and as the flight attendant passed he looked at us and said loudly 'I wonder who made this awful mess'."
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."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The check in agent at counter was condescending and rude and I was forced to use the kiosk agent who was nice and helpful"
Pros: "free beveragesand snacks. room to breath, kind staff"
Cons: "People at check-in at Jetblue did not show any interest at all in helping clarify why you did not provide me with three boarding passes I needed to reach my final destination. Unfriendly, poor service and poor communication."
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: "The modern planes and on time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Unfriendly check-in staff, unpleasant crew members and pokey seats. Having to pay for water on a 3.5 hour flight took cheapness to a new low. My first experience with Spirit Airlines will probably be my last."
Pros: "Got to our destination quickly"
Cons: "I'm 6 feet tall. No leg room with spirit."
Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."
Pros: "Nothing. How could a flight not give free water? People need to take meds and should be required to pay $5 for bottled at the terminal. Everything is just highway robbery. Some folks don’t even have a credit card or fir that matter the cash."
Cons: "I was totally humiliated at the gate when I was taken off line because I had one extra bag to carry on. I was then charged $65 to then bring it on board an additional $20 to secure a sit since the flight had been over booked. The flight was delayed for the late arrival of on board staff. Most of the passengers were flight crew either connecting."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bag drop off was unorganized and slow causing a delay in departure, causing a 2 hour flight to turn into a 7.5 hour ordeal with uninformed and unpleasant staff. I sat on the plane from 3pm-10:30. Staff had no clue and charged everyone for food. You get what you pay for & im never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "baggage charges. carryon fees, outregous"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The seats on some Spirit planes are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats and there’s no entertainment"
Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."
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."
Cons: "Very small seats"
Pros: "I will never fly Spirit again. The extra charges are extreme. The equipment is old and the seat room is for children."
Cons: "Everything except crew."
Cons: "Luggage Charges are outrageous"
Pros: "Kind attendants"
Cons: "Too many "hidden" and extra costs"
Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean. Flight crew 1st class."
Cons: "The delays and confusion at the gate due to a lack of personal."
Pros: "Very bad"
Pros: "Always on time"
Pros: "Nothing at all there was horrible every time you ask somebody to help you they pull it you to someone else then they wait all day for someone that didn't even show up the service sucked the people were nice but the service sucked"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay for my room when I save money to go to Peru and I had to pay for my room because they told me it was a g import then they told me to go to the 8 then they told me to go to f then I had to go right back around and go back to H which took me hours to get through the checkpoint then when I get there they tell me that my planes gone when they said they call me I looked on my caller ID I had no phone this phone call from no Airline needed in my wife now she's in Peru by herself and I'm stuck in Fort Lauderdale Florida and she's all the way in Peru then I have no way of getting to her now y'all told me I got to wait till Wednesday to come it's ridiculous"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Air fares are deceiving, they appear to be cheap to then be told the carry on is $49 when every other airline charges $25 to CHECK IN A BAG! Ridiculous! Not even a snack was offered. Very uncomfortable seating. Last time I ever fly through spirit."
Pros: "The seats were already reserved"
Cons: "The plane was 3 hours late and I received a email , and signed up for a text. The seats are super tight and nothing at all included. If you are looking for a super fast trip and with no luggage this is the airline for you. Not a family friendly airline , luck the kids did not go with us,"
Cons: "Seats are awfully unconfortable. I'm tall and these slighly cheaper tickets came at a price - my legs paid for it. Thankfully my trip was only 3 hrs."
Pros: "It was a very good flight to Orlando. No mishaps or anything. Everything went well and smoothly."
Pros: "Great deal."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Fast flight not over crowded. Had no trouble with bags that we made sure we're within the measurements. Book checked bags ahead!!! Angry people didn't read the rules but the staff is efficient and curteous. For short domestic flights it's alright."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and there are a bunch of offers at end of the flight that are unessential but they don't force them on you so that's something."
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful No delay"
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight and lied why it was cancelled. Then you lied about what flights were available the next day. I lost a day and a half off my vacation with no compensation. Plus no customer service number."
Pros: "when I was checking in they were work quick and efficient,the pilot was very nice he knew we all were nervous because of the turbulence so made us all feel more relax by making us laugh with some jokes very nice. 10 stars. n i can go on there was so much more but I'll just stop here thank you SPIRIT"
Cons: "mostly everything!! just one small detail they should at least give a bag popcorn or a water free other then that 10 stars"
Pros: "Nothing, the Worst people and they took my money and didn't travel"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Baggage policy and flight delay!"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Landed early"
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: "Airline representatives were rude"
Pros: "Buying the ticket and checking in were good experiences. Getting updates about the flight was a good thing too."
Cons: "I didn't get a choice on seat assignment. The flight attendants were loud and bumped into me quite often when two were passing on the aisle. I requested to not do that as there is only space for one body to go through. I got 'I'm only trying to do my job' to dismiss my request. Heard complains from one attendant about the delay causing her to miss her sleeping hours. Was not able to relax because of the attendant's loud conversation with one of the passengers and the loud noises made by the slamming of the doors in the food and refreshment area. Tried to keep occupied but the tray was too small to place my apple laptop. So just tried to squeeze myself in my seat to avoid being bopped into my head and shoulders. Not a very relaxing flight. Was not impressed about the are of a customer comfort. Another passengers were also complaining."
Cons: "In addition to one hour delay that created so much inconvenience, the performance of the flight attendants were not acceptable. Non of them checked the security aspects of the flight before departure including seat belts or not letting people keep their back packs between the legs instead of putting them under the seat. Furthermore, my seat was beside a person who needed two seats instead of one seat and all the time during fligt I was in an extreme discomfort. I talked to the flight attendants and asked them if possible to give me another seat but they were not willing to help much.Totally I am really disappointed with boarding+comfort and the crew. I will definitely try my best not to fly with Spirit airlines anymore."
Cons: "They cancel the flight without saying anything, a call , an email, nothing."
Cons: "No leg room and delayed one hour"
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew"
Pros: "flight leave on time."
Cons: "leave on time."
Pros: "Nice seats, low rates, friendly crew, fast check in process"
Cons: "Checked bag fees are high"
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 !"
Cons: "Cancelled flighr never will buy tickets for friends or myself on spirit"
Pros: "Flight crew was very professional despite several difficult passengers."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence, but that was hard to avoid. Several passengers displayed rudeness toward the flight crew."
