Cons: "No water landing! I was excited to float around on a hot day, go down an awesome slide, and catch some sick waves, but come on people, we never even got a chance!"
Cons: "could not make it in time. Then we got on plane and pilot said it was an electrical problem on the flight but the generators were now up and at em again. Very hair raising ride for me - got in at 2:30 am with another hour to drive home - and I lost a LOT of confidence which I have always had in Jet Blue.

Cons: "Nothing yet."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."
Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "I dont usually fly, staff was friendly and helpful, made my experience less stressful."
Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."

Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "My flights was delayed"
Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."
Pros: "Gave me my refund!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 times without sufficient reason. Weather was clear. Had to ask for a refund after the 6th delay. Missed an important event."

Pros: "L.L Bean crew was amazing!! The tv channels and movies!!"
Pros: "the plane was good!"
Cons: "the plane boarded late"
Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."
Pros: "Crew was great. Captain provided lots of updates and provided useful site information prior to landing"
Cons: "TV kept on blacking out"
Pros: "The staff is great, the seats are comfortable, and the food is good"
Pros: "Crew were professional"
Cons: "Flight was late. 30 minutes waiting for a gate at Richmond"
Pros: "Very helpful customer service, really appreciate their help."
Cons: "I took two JetBlue flights within 4 days, both with delays > 2 hr for mechanical issues. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been significantly delayed in the past 5 years, especially when not in the winter. JetBlue, please fix whatever is wrong with your planes. I've otherwise had nothing but positive experiences with them."
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, plenty of leg room,free Wi-Fi, free snacks."
Cons: "Seat was slightly uncomfortable at times but that's a very minor complaint. Overall a good experience and would definitely recommend JetBlue to others."
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Service was excellent in spite of the terrible weather conditions. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"

Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
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: "Everything else"
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Pros: "When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond."
Cons: "Missed our connection. Spent the night in Minneapolis. Luckily we had no urgent reason to get home to."
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"

Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "Staff are friendly"

Cons: "Very old dirty plane"
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "Changing my flight , with out notice or short notice.. Abdi.!!"
Cons: "Old plane Zero entertainment First class seats worn thin and uncomfortable. I've been flying AA quite a bit lately and thought I'd give Delta another try. Too bad, it's clearly not up to today's standards"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "The entertainment units were terrible. Touch screens effectively impossible to operate in this 737-800."
Cons: "I left my wallet on this flight. It was extremely frustrating that I was unable to speak to a live person to find out if the wallet had been recovered. I filled out the form online and now have to wait 2 to 3 weeks!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and easy. For the first time on any airline, the crew was over-the-top friendly and my special meal request was excellent."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Pros: "I liked nothing, because the flight was 4hrs late and had 20 on standby."
Cons: "4hrs late, 20 on standby, missed connection, had to travel a day later and spent 14hrs in the airport."
Cons: "I'm just glad that we got to the airport 2 1/2 hours early because we needed it. We had to check a dog so we had to go through the special needs line, they had 2 out of 20 of ticket lines open. My wife also needs a wheelchair and after 45 minutes of standing in line, I spoke to one of the idiots that are supposed to be there to help and he went and got a wheelchair which I had to push my wife in the wheelchair through the zig zag line with 2 large suit cases and a dog. It took us an hour and a half to get tickets and then they called for someone to push the wheelchair and we where told to wait for them there. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to come but no one came so I started pushing her towards the Sercurity check line and finally someone came to push her and he stayed on his phone the entire time. When my wife got to the point where she needed to walk through the metal detector she was having a little trouble getting out of the chair so they told her to just stay in the chair and they would push her through in the wheelchair. When she got through, they almost strip searched her and patted her down like she was a criminal. That took another 25 minutes!!! They the guy pushed her to our gate and insisted on taking the chair back with him, so 5 minutes later they asked if it was anyone who needed assistance getting on the plane. I went up and told them that my wife needed a chair to get on the plane so they had to call and get another chair which took another 10 minutes and finally we got on the plane. It took us 2 hours and 15 minutes to get a ticket and go through Sercurity!!!! Very very very unprofessional!!!"
Cons: "Free streaming movies on WiFi did not work (the system was broken on this aircraft according to the customer support). We had 3 people flying together but did not get the seats assigned in one place. Yes, we did not pay extra for confirmed seats but since we were buying 3 tickets I think 3 seats close to each other (if not in one row) should be expected."
Cons: "make me sleep in the airport unexceptedly"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Service fair."
Cons: "The food was horrid."

Cons: "The shared screens."

Cons: "Waited 2 hours for take off."
Pros: "Got to Paris. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very tight seats that had minimal room to sleep. My knees hit the seat in front of me when sitting upright"

Pros: "nothing since I didnt fly finnair"
Cons: "I did not like anything since both flight to and from was with airlines I actively decided i didnt want to fly with"

Cons: "The flight company's got changed to AA from Iberia but didn't get any email from Kayak. Send an email next time please."

Cons: "Could not buy snacks"
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "My business class flight"

Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."

Pros: "The pilot was amazing!"
Pros: "Leg room Kind stewards"
Cons: "No gluten free meal options"

Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"
Pros: "Very smooth flight with excellent crew!"
Cons: "There were no individual monitors at the seats."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "The plane left on time and the flight crew were very courteous."
Cons: "Seats were hard and to close and not enough leg room. We had a new Airbus on an AA flight from San Francisco to Dallas that had wider seats that were softer and enough leg room. That was a great plane. There was no personal entertainment. Only one big screen coming out of the ceiling and playing a children's movie. Did not listen to it."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
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"
Pros: "Comfortable seating considering economy. Food decent."
Cons: "2 hour delay due to no captain available. Told us about it when we were supposed to be boarding."

Cons: "Space between the seats"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and efficient"
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system. Even their in flight radio got messed up. seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "All was fine would be nice to have individual screens but that is minor"
Pros: "Smallest transatlantic plane ever! Too mich tirbulence for a plane this small on its way to Europe. I was expecting to be on Finnair and was on some crappy American Airline plane that just arrives to NY from Miami. Worst flight ever."
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."
Cons: "The movies were watched were old movies; they could be updated."
Pros: "The initial price. Difficult flight."
Cons: "I did not get what I paid for and check in took two hours to figure out. I bought tickets on Kayak through Justfly.com for a Finnair flight and added an American Airlines (affiliate) frequent flyer number.and reserved my seats early.as I usually do and everything was confirmed by Justfly.com. No problems, right? I did not receive a check in notification. I used the Finnair trip number on my email but it said there was no flight found. I could not initially get hold of Just fly.com. when I did, they said I had to check in through American Airlines. That didn't work initially either. After getting a new trip number I was able to check in but our seats were changed and it was a red eye. When trying to get seats I noticed there are very few seats left. The seats I had selected were now open and would coat another $120 plus. I couldn't even get those. We wound up with some exit seats which seemed fine until my wife couldn't recline her seat. It was uncomfortable for both of us because she had to use my legs to prop hers onto. Im still on vacation so I haven't contacted American for a refund yet."
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: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Will probably never fly out of JFK again-4 hour delay, poor communication from airport staff, 4 Gate changes you name it. Absolutely painful"
Pros: "Seats were okay. Only one hour flight comfortable. Good for the money."
Cons: "Walking up and down to get on/off the plane (small plane)"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 5 hours. We were late for our tour in Ireland!"
Pros: "The t was a nonstop"
Cons: "Old plane! No wifi, no ind TVs. Drinks are $8! Plus it was a code share with American so poorer service and no blueberry juice. I would not chose this flight again."
Pros: "We lost a full day with delays using american airlines /finair when flying to dublin. Their "free" sandwiches to hold us over is embarasssing. We then missed our plane because finair informes us after waiting online we needed to go to another terminal to check bags at american airline. That was not initially told to us and now we are spending over $1000 so we can fly tomorrow plus hotel room. It also affected a business trip to vegas which i needed to cancel. My experience was terrible with finair and american airlines with terrible customer support at the airport. Amazing how we need to pay another 1000 for terrible communication."
Cons: "Lack of communication from airlines Delays Forced to pay a return flight fee plus hotel fee due to finair inabilityty to communicate and direct customers to right terminal."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Cons: "Muy bueno el crew"

Cons: "If the seats could decline"

Cons: "Less expensive food and drink onboard"
Pros: "Everything they dont know anything when we ask"
Pros: "The price of the ticket! Plus the plane felt roomier"
Cons: "No tv or radio. And seats do not recline at all."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was quick, left right on time and even landed a little early"
Cons: "Limited leg room, but I’m also 6’4”. No food or entertainment options (at least not without paying for it) on the flight but with a budget airline that’s what you expect. Beyond that it was fine"
Pros: "The seats were wider and more comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a change of the plane."
Pros: "Awesome flight!! Seats a bit uncomfortable so gave 3 stars, food expensive not un usual seems the same on most flights where food isn't free. Overall awesome staff and flight!!"
Cons: "Horrible delays and lack of communication to passengers about the reason for the delay. Upon arrival, further 20-25 minute delay. No compensation of any kind for the frustrations."
Pros: "It was ahead of schedule on the return flight, attendants were very nice and accommodating at front desk and on plane"
Cons: "Did not have wheelchair and attendant available in timely manner at Orlando airport for arrival or departure. Did not know there was a fee for second carryon bag."
Cons: "The plane was very loud."
Cons: "Service is Not ideal because of attitudes."
Pros: "Pilot did a nice job. Easy of check-in. Did not have to take off my shoes."
Cons: "Crewe member at check-in was rude. When I asked for a different person to help me, she did apologize. The board at the gate was wrong. It said it was going to Baltimore. Employees said it was a mistakes that the flight was to Richmond. It was corrected about 10 minutes before departure. Plane was late. Charged an additional $50 each way for suitcase. Did not know this at time of booking."
Pros: "Crew was kind, after some coaxing waited for a family member of a fellow passenger who wandered too far from gate to make it back in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Need updates and alerts on delayed flight!! I was checking my phone every 15 minutes from the restaurant next to the gate, reloading the status page, and the status that it changed from delayed two hours to taking off now happened within a 10 minute window. Next thing I know they are calling for final boarding, last call, even though half the flight didn't make it there yet because they didn't update that the delay was cancelled until minutes before boarding. I understand we all need to take off ASAP, but they've got to understand if everyone was standing at the gate, there would be no room to stand so we all disperse and know we can check our smartphones for updates."
Pros: "An airport attendant, Alfonso, was wonderfully helpful and friendly. He took good care of me, as I was needing wheelchair assistance."
Cons: "When we arrived, I needed wheelchair assistance. I was picked up on the gangplank, and taken to the gate across from our arrival and LEFT THERE. No offers of help after that. I had a 3 hour layover, and finally Alfonso asked if I needed additional assistance. No one else was I interested in helping me get to food or a restroom. During the course of my layover, I heard over 6 flights have gate changes. Ours also was changed...at the time we should've been boarding. No explanation or apology for inconvenience. And again, I was LEFT THERE with no assistance. I finally flagged someone down to get a wheelchair and take me to the new gate, where I was LEFT AGAIN. I finally got up and walked to a restroom in my own (in great pain). The info for our flight remained on the screen at the old gate, with no mention of a gate change, and the new gate had NO information posted about our flight anywhere...which led to a great deal of confusion, chaos, and angry patrons. The gate change also caused us to board 30 min late. The Spirit employees were hard to find (laughing and hanging out in a closed-off area behind the desk). They were not friendly, helpful, or even understanding about the situation. I asked to be the last one on the plane (needing wheelchair assistance), and was told no, with no kindness or explanation. The flight attendants on this flight were not any better than the ines in the flight before...only w/o the funny commentary. And, another long flight with no entertainment, comfort, or friendly assistance. When we arrived at DFW, there were storms (that would've been avoided if we had left Orlando in time) that kept us in a holding pattern for an hour and a half ON TOP of a two and a half hour flight. The flight attendants used this time as a way to make MORE money for the airline by charging money for any food/drinks during this time...even water. We were on that cramped plane for 5 HOURS and were still having to pay for water. This was one of my WORST airline experiences in over 40 years of flying."
Pros: "That there was not an delays. That is all that I liked about this flight."
Cons: "when we were boarding the co pilot was on their cell phone and so were the flight attendants. Not one person said hello or welcomed us on board."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Cons: "The Seats are Hard and narrow and don't lean back. (I know... It's an economy flight and you get what you paid for.)"
Pros: "Was surprised with carrying baggage charge which was expensive."
Cons: "Airline is not comparable to other flights listed on Kayak because of extra and unexpected charges for carry on luggage and seat assignments which is big surprise when flying this airline for first time."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "How fast the flight was"
Cons: "No drinks atleast serve water"
Cons: "Had to pay $52 to check bag"
Cons: "The seats are too small and there is not enough leg room."
Cons: "Getting dinging for bags at the gate, $50 a bag each way?!? Wasn't explicit ok Kayaks website and very financially cumbersome. Not cool."
Cons: "Double booking of seats"
Pros: "THE PRICE"
Cons: "$55 CARRY ON CHARGE"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "I liked that the flight staffordable were nice and that there wasn't a lot of coughing or sickness in the airplane. Like that we were on time and that the plane seemed clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the three children that were behind myself my mom and my 2 year old son. They inter flight was packed with child's due to spring break getting back. But it would have been nice to at least have an adult with them to stop there constant kicking of the seats. They were very loud and noisy and at one point woke my 2 year old up from his sleep and I just wasn't impressed with no one saying anything including the airline staff."
Cons: "I was very surprised to learn that I would be charged $45 dollars for my carry on, both ways! This hidden cost would have impacted my decision when choosing a flight. In addition, I didn't purchase a seat another $25. I found it interesting that I was unable to print a boarding pass. I called customer service and was told that they can't print a boarding pass for me, but would report the issue to IT. I can't help but wonder if they were holding back my pass, hoping someone would purchase a ticket. There was no entertainment. Passengers in my area were over served, and were loud and using profane language to the point that departing passenger, several rows ahead, made a point to turn around and see who was responsible for the commotion. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight was smooth quick and on time and I got a good price"
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
Pros: "That the plane was really on time."
Cons: "No good service. Service try to sell you overpriced snacks and drinks. Carry on bags $55, Drop off bags $52."
Pros: "overall the trip was fine but had I known that you had to pay for a carry-on I would have chosen to fly with another airline"
Pros: "No entertainment available. Only snacks were available."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight with 15min before boarding notice. Did not get to destination."
Cons: "Crew food boarding check in employ not profesional"
Pros: "Compared to Frontier I liked the smooth moving lines for bag check ins, and a ground person helping folks backed up on flights that were boarding and in a panic. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "It's hard when we can't get a beverage or snack anymore on a plane."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Pros: "Easy boarding process and on timely flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "I was charged $65 for a carryon that was an inch too large to be personal. Ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was good. The crew was nice. Direct flight to Orlando."
Cons: "No entertainment. Seats could be a little more comfortable. Have to pay for drinks or snacks, even water."
Pros: "Kept getting emails that the flight was on time only to find obscenely long lines at check in, under staff and flights delayed for over 2 hours!"
Cons: "so incredibly delayed"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid extra for the extended seat which was great and also due to the fact that I had the row to myself. I have sat in regular seats and they are VERY VERY short and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and very nice at all times. The plane was clean and relatively new. Price was great, considering that I paid $96 for two passengers total, with taxes."
Cons: "Some of the passenger's attitude was not the right one. The prices for check bags, was a little inthehigh side."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and ruined my whole trip!"
Pros: "Crew was very entertaining - a la Southwest Airlines but funnier. One of the crew noted that I had taken out my medication and immediately brought me water."
Cons: "Seats don't recline so there is zero relief/change in body position - making a short trip much longer. Suffered leg cramps. Short trip so luggage was not an issue but in the past I have been literally tapped out by the "additional fees" on baggage over 40(??)lbs."
