Pros: "Bigger coach than other US airlines"
Cons: "Bigger lavatory in the plains"
Pros: "Power at the seat was great, just wish there were three outlets instead of two for three seats. Entertainment was good. Snacks and sodas are always good."
Cons: "Not sure why the TV controls weren't on the armrest next to the window where my neighbor wouldn't accidentally bump the controls with her elbow. Super annoying issue. Seems odd that there are two outlets for three seats."
Pros: "It was on time. Comfortable seats. Enough leg room."
Cons: "3 hour delay -just under"
Pros: "crew member good."
Cons: "delay delay delay"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1.5 hours so would have preferred to be on time"
Pros: "NOTHING! WAITING 10 HOURS AT LOGAN AIRPORT IN BOSTON WAS A NIGHTMARE? WE WERE TOLD THAT THE 11:15AM FLIGHT WOULD BE DEOARTING AT 12 NOON! THEN 3PM, THEN 6:20 PM AND FINALLY WE TOOK OFF AFTER 8PM! WE ARRIVED IN SARASOTA AFTER 11PM. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!"
Pros: "It was really nice having a USB charger under every seat."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and I was only notified when I had arrived at the airport."
Pros: "I love everything about my flight experience with JetBlue. The spacious cabin seating, tasty snacks, wicked friendly crew. On-time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly lacking, but there was DirectTV showing MNF and I had a bunch of entertainment options on my personal device so no big."
Pros: "Crew efficient, polite, & communicative. Array of tv channels allowed me to watch football while our departure was delayed."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed our departure."
Pros: "Excellent healthy snack options and variety. Friendly crew. They recycle. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Landed 10 minutes early only for them to announce we had 10min delay at the gate. then we sit on runway for 40 minutes with no explanation. That is unacceptable.. context for anxious passengers is a must. Customer sat plummets from this. A little communication goes a long way."
Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."
Pros: "The ease of boarding by groups, the check in and baggage check in"
Cons: "The delay, no explanation why, the seat cushion was worn were as the seat was very uncomfortable after a while. A 5 or 51/2 hour trip only 1 refreshment was offer and only 2 complimentary drinks."
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Pros: "Love the ample legroom in coach seating, and that I don’t feel like one of gazillion sardines in a can. Snack selection is awesome and free: ) Flight attendants were courteous Check-in staff at the departure gate was friendly and even shared a quip of humor!"
Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there. Intercom messages sounded like an annoyed demand because we were bad passengers not an announcement simply alerting us of the seatbelt sign being turned on again"
Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."
Cons: "Had to pick up gate-checked bag at carousel. But it arrived quickly."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The plane was way too hot it was probably 80° in the plane. In the last half hour of the flight there was a lot of turbulence. The flight attendants weren’t that friendly. Woman at the gate should not be in service business."
Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours."
Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"
Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."
Cons: "Late departure; headphone jack on my armrest was faulty so I had to hold the plug in the whole time if I wanted to hear sound of movies; once we were at the gate in SFO, it took a good 10 minutes for them to open the door to let us off."
Pros: "I didn't like much of anything EXCEPT THE FREE WIFI. While it's nice to have all the bells and whistles (free in flight TV/movies, snacks/beverages, etc.), the basics need to be met too - which they weren't."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason. Why have us sit on the plane in a cramped atmosphere instead of delaying it at the gate first until your ducks are in a row? Then the in-flight entertainment audio periodically cuts out, and they were resetting the TV system over 3 times. In addition, I had requested a price reduction when I booked the flight since JetBlue's website is buggy and the price went up $80 in front of my eyes while other people booked the seat I wanted, and they weren't willing to give me anything."
Pros: "The TV"
Cons: "They advertise free Wifi, couldn't get it to work at all. They did not offer everyone drinks or a snack. It was an early flight, a snack and water would have been lovely but didn't see that from the crew. They also didn't let my girlfriend and I sit next to each other after requesting so."
Cons: "The Jet Blue counter person was not helpful at all providing direction to us from International Terminal to Domestic terminal C. No help at all to passengers who are not familiar with Logan Airport. Major major disappointment!"
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"
Cons: "Only one staff member was available at the boarding gate for most of the time prior to boarding. This was insufficient to handle the needs or passengers with questions, needing seat assignments, and so on. She did the best she could be it was not as organized as it could have been."
Pros: "excellent service, clean plane, great snacks"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great, except..."
Cons: "It was way too cold. Get the heat turned up on that thing!"
Pros: "Overall a very good experience. Jet Blue is legitimately more comfortable than most other airlines and the boarding process was streamlined and effective."
Cons: "The only movie options were to stream your own via their in flight internet. Not a terrible thing, but other airlines offer more movie options, even on short flights."
Pros: "Everything was terrific...on time and a very smooth experience including the flight! Thank you!"
Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."
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."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."
Pros: "JetBlue did a good job, as usual."
Cons: "There was a screaming Infant in the seat next to me that continued to scream for the first hour and a half. I requested earplugs, and wore them under my 34 dB noise isolating earmuffs (which were made for use at a gun range). The screaming was still loud enough to give me the worst headache that I've had in 4 years. Once this baby stopped, the baby in the row behind me began to scream and the one across the isle from him/her joined in. I would happily rebook with JetBlue if there was an option to not be seated within 5 rows of a toddler."
Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"
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: "Even in regular couch seats I found the leg room to be good."
Cons: "Flight crew was efficient but not particularly friendly. Could smile more."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Too long flight time I noticed the plane speed was 440 MPH most of the time. This may be the first flight I sat which was flying this slow"
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: "Walking in to the Boston terminal was immediately relaxing. I got through the line quickly and once I got to my gate it was also very relaxing."
Cons: "Soba noodles were soggy, but not a deal breaker!"
Pros: "Jet Blue treats its customers like they are real people and not just stock to be moved. There is adequate legroom. Their personnel are friendly and competent. This alone puts them above most airlines."
Pros: "When I sat into my comfortable seat with its amazing leg room, I asked the woman next to me if she had flown Jet Blue previously. She replied that it is now her favorite airline. At the end of the trip I agreed that it is a distinctly different and great airline. My complaint is that I have to travel from NE Wisconsin to Chicago in order to use Jet Blue. When are you coming to MKE? The way the food and drink orders were handled worked well, and the selections were amazing! Needless to say, the media offered was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew did a good job, but one of the female staff seemed stressed. I hope she was able to get some relief and rest."
Pros: "Crew were professional"
Cons: "Flight was late. 30 minutes waiting for a gate at Richmond"
Cons: "Filght ( Jetblue )got delayed by 3 hrs from Boston to Newyork , and travel got postponed to the next day due to this and rescheduled in Qatar airways. There was lot of inconviniences, time losss and personal adjustments occured along with the financial loss due to the change of travel date."
Cons: "The boarding process is very old styled airport bus (no AC mid May) and stairs. It's a big airplane and lots of people, so the process took really long time, and very uncomfortable in the heat. In flight English announcement is barely recognizable due to heavy accent."
Pros: "I had a very troubling encounter with a JetBlue employee at the ticket counter - BWI Airport. Specifically, when I approached the tick counter and asked if there were any flights going to Boston (03/12/2017), I was told by one if the ladies No more available flights to Boston (with a pleasant professional smile); from which I accessed the Kayak app ND discovered there were additional flights, wherein I proceeded to purchase a ticket. Once I obtained my confirmation from the JetBlue website via Kayak, I returned to the ticket counter and noticed the employee who gave me the false information left the area and did not return. I find this encounter troubling. The act committed by the unnamed employee indicates their are employees that feel empowered to commit deceitful acts."
Pros: "Prompt meals and beverage service"
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilots too."
Cons: "The audio and video at my seat did not work correctly."
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat uncomfortable and hard."
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We had to go back to the gate to correct an interior light problem."
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"
Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Pros: "I love ice cream and chocolate"
Cons: "Healthy vegetarian meal choice"
Pros: "Seat was hard, not much foot space"
Cons: "My wife and Iasked for a snack, it was never delivered"
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Pros: "The cAbin attendant was really good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."
Cons: "Flight was horrible"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Boarding process. Paying to check bag when people with roll-on bags were allowed to check them at the gate for free."
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Cons: "Delay in leaving from the airport there were issues with Web checkin Crew wasnt able to give me my boarding pass for the connecting flight and kept saying going to the other counter"
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
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: "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."
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."
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: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
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: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
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: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "Delta always has a nice professional crew. We were served within a reasonable time and I felt comfortable the whole flight."
Cons: "The pressure is the cabin with really bothering me. I've flown several times and never had the pressure to bother me but it was really hurting my head."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "The factfact they had a problem shouldn't effect their customers. They postponed the flight 5 times by 6 hours to cancel it at the end, why not cancel immediately and save the trouble to all their passengers"
Cons: "Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !"
Pros: "The flights seemed to go fast once we were in the air and it was nice the pilot was trying to get us there earlier because we had taken off late."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and quick with service."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment! This is ridiculous for an overnight, international flight."
Pros: "Hound crews are helpful in fixing up our seats"
Cons: "Provide more options for food. There were 2 vegan meals out of 3. Self serve counter provide more seats options and provide change seat function"
Pros: "For a long-distance flighty the seats were so cramped. They wanted me to pay $100 to move to an open window seat next to me."
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Aircraft had no screen, old, uncomfortable"
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Cons: "Never got on the flight!! This was a Christmas gift & they took the money when booked it and told me they needed credit card verification 2hrs before departure! Terms and conditions doesn’t say I needed the credit card when checking-in! They also NEVER notified us that I was needing that information! The person who booked my flight is overseas!!! They are the worst at customer service. Still waiting to hear back from them! It’s the holidays and they are absolutely careless! I must add that when checking-in the agent was rude, unprofessional and even mocked me! ridiculous!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pick up our luggage when getting off plane from Sydney, just to walk them around the corner to be put on flight to ATL. (I thought luggage handlers were paid for this). Luggage had already been put through security!! This put us in a TOTAL RUSH just to make it on the plane ourselves!"
Pros: "Boarding from Dallas was very good but when landed in London there was no service provided to me as I requested. I asked for wheelchair and help claiming my luggage due to health problem but when I asked at the airplan gate if some body will help me the answer was wait over there with a rude way and ended by walking to the passport area and claiming my bags by my self, my bags was not there and I was going back and forth to follow directions been given to find my luggage. I was very exhausted and tired and asked people around me for help."
Cons: "There was no help at all especially from the British airway. Unlikely there was very rude answer by telling me if you need help you can hire somebody to help you at claiming bags area. This answer was not expected at all and I was very disoppointed as I made a request to have a wheelchair from London. This request was ignored in London. I was very tired and placed my self to a risk of injury because I hade recent surgery to my right shoulder. As a British air way and this was my first experience I will think carefully next time to use this service again. One of my luggage was damaged and this bag was new and this was my first time to use it they told me at customer service this just a scratch and there is no liability for this kind of damage. hopefully some body can investigate this and do something"
Pros: "Nothing - except getting my seat upgraded from the 'claustrophobic zone'."
Cons: "Having to wait 5 hours for the flight as my FRA to DFW flight arrived late. I had been up over 26 hours already and was struggling to stay awake prior to the flight. (My day didn't end until I'd been up more than 32 hours.) Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time. Headphone jack had a very poor connection. Plane was dirty."
Pros: "Mostly really friendly crew members. Plane seemed new, first and business class looked lovely."
Cons: "Wihout question, the most uncomfortable seat ive ever been in. It was obviously a newer plane, long haul flight, and thw configuration maximized space for more passengers. Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."
Pros: "Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. The new departure time was moved twice after we were already invited for boarding. Attendants failed to communicate new times or make any announcements absolutely whatsoever. Just stood in line to board for almost an hour."
Pros: "Crew were ok Captain was informant"
Cons: "Delay Heat on plane at 98 degrees upon boarding"
Pros: "Pilot sounded nice"
Cons: "Airline Attendant ride. Not 2 me. I stayed away from her seeing how she talked to other patrons. Yelling “get with the program. I’ll be watching you” for simple mistakes made before door of plane closed. Tried to talk elderly woman out of tea because she was lazy and didn’t bring hot water on her cart. Eventually brought it but why try to talk her out of it. Heavy set dark brown tall Attendant on flight 5874 Mesa Airlines. Lost my luggage. More and more friends, family & 1 flight expert says AA gets more complaints. Will try booking with another airline carrier in future unless absolute emergency to take AA. Worth $40.00 or more extra to get friendly service."
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable. The angled cubical is a bit confining. Seat belts are short so tough to roll over in the full sleeping position."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "AA has nine boarding groups, which queue up in two lanes. Each of the two lanes hold about 5 people, at most. This is ridiculous. It creates enormous crowds of people jockeying to be near the tiny lanes for when their number is called 5 or 10 minutes down the line. AA needs to reduce the number of boarding groups, lengthen the lanes, and provide more of them. No other airline boards this way. That's because this boarding method is stupid. Unsurprisingly, our plane took off late because they couldn't get everyone boarded in time."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."
Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"
Cons: "the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies."
Pros: "Snow ruined flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment with this flight. Cookies good."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat, so my boyfriend and I had to fly cross country on opposite ends of the plane. There was a stewardess named Karen who was so rude. She clearly was not happy to be working, never smiled, and banged on the bathroom door while I was peeing because I was "not allowed to miss the instruction video." Had I not seen it a few hours earlier, I would have waited to use the restroom. Good thing they showed the same video three times in a row."
Cons: "I've flown a lot, and I really couldn't believe how rude the flight attendants were on this flight. They seemed very inconvenienced by their job. I gave a snack pack back to a FA bc of my allergies and she snatched it out of my hand while walking by me without even looking at me...my husband's jaw dropped, he saw it too. It was unbelievable how rude they were."
Pros: "Cabin baggage allowance."
Cons: "No food, only purchasable snacks payable only with a card not cash. That incurs charges for those that are not US card holders! And extortionate prices. Wifi based entertainment so you need your own tablet/phone. Great if the wifi works - it didn't. Neither on the outward or return journeys."
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "People in front of us were reclining the entire time and our seats right behind them were tight. Did not like having to pay extra for seats"
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Cons: "I missed the connection in London and had to wait 5 hours for another flight. This was only due the fact that there is no help to passengers in connection. I had over an hour and a half to get to my flight but waiting for the busses and to commute to the right gate took so long that I missed my flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"
Cons: "Never got to board that plane due to delay of my previous flight."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."
Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Cons: "It took so long for me to leave this airport. I got there around 11:30pm and my flight wasn't till around 9:45am the next day and so when it came to that time they had cancelled my flight so I got another ticked for around 2pm and they didn't board that flight till around 4:30. My experience there was to much to handle. I was supposed to get to Colorado Friday night but didn't even get here time Saturday afternoon. Really upsetted me because I leave wednsday so I don't have enough time to be with my boyfriend. I honestly don't think I'll be flying American Airlines again"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Could not get a flight to tulsa. Moved to a delayed flight to OKC with rude gate staff and no inflight drink or food service."
Cons: "Flight delay, awful boarding, had to switch planes, no entertainment, no free wifi"
Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."
Pros: "Comfortable seats although it was a bit warm."
Cons: "I booked with Finnair and paid Finnair however my extra luggage fees were charged by another airline who charged 30$ more per bag than what I saw on the Finnair site. Really put me in a sour mood to pay so much extra money."
Cons: "Arrived in Charlotte and tried to get on an earlier flight to Richmond. Was willing to pay a change fee. Even though there were empty seats, I was told that change fee was unavailable for my reservation. I talked to 3 different people on the phone and was given 3 different reasons as to why. 3 different gate people also said there was nothing they could do and there were no supervisors to help. Another person at the counter (who I believe was a supervisor) was able to override and get me on the 2nd (of 3 flights with empty seats)."
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!!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
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: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Pros: "Entertainment and leg room brilliant!"
Cons: "Good was disgusting"
Pros: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight."
Cons: "— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"
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: "Improve the food and be ahead of the best"
Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Seats were small with not much leg room"
Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"
Pros: "Brisk, efficient cabin crew served food and drink quickly then left us alone to sleep."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 75 minutes "awaiting plane". 20 minute wait when finally arrived at Heathrow for steps down to bus to take us to terminal."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
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."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."
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 crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Pros: "It's was a straight threw flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on the way there and on the way back. I checked the flights to see if they where running on time they said they where. Then I'm told the flight was delayed first 15 min then an hour. The Flight back was even worse the flight was suppose to leave Saint Louis at 3:30 to Newark was delayed 2hours and 50 minutes I checked the flight status said it was going to be on time. If I had know it wasn't going to be on time My son wouldn't have had to wait at the air port as long as He did"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me...that were pleasant."
Cons: "That when I explained being hearing impaired the boarding attendant said my carry on needed to be checked. I didn't understand her and proceeded to the loading blank. Then when boarding the attendant informed me. I explained I checked my bag in the airport compartment tester and it was fine. I also asked the attendant at the counter. She confirmed it was fine. Still smiling until the snack pretzels were passed out. When I didn't hear the attendant's question, in spite of telling her I was hearing impaired, she threw her hand up rudely and just continued on to other customers. When boarding I watched orhers board with the same size bag as mine, and wondered if telling someone you can't hear gives them the right to inform you at the gate that your bag needs to be checked?"
Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, causing major inconveniences, especially as I was on my way to a funeral Only compensation was a food/beverage voucher equal to the value of 5 Swiss Francs, enough to buy a bottle of water despite HOURS wasted"
Pros: "The flight itself was great.. However the experience at the airport was terrible.. After placing several calls prior to my departure date to confirm that my 40 inch TV was ok for transportation , it wasn't until I got to the airport to find out that I was unable to take the TV or the TV stand.. I live in Philadelphia and had nowhere to leave it causing me to give it to a stranger in order to make my flight . I am very distraught that the information indicating there was an embargo restricting the transportatione of TV greater 32 inches or boxes to Montego Bay was not given during any of those calls.. I don't understand why that information was not sent in an email prior.. On top of that I placed a call to customs in Montego Bay and was adviced that the embargo is enforced by the airline not customs... If I could some how get some answers regarding this I would appreciate it..."
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: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."
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."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "This was the flight from hell. Terrible uncomfortable seats. Could not get the monitor turned off and out of my eyes. Plus we were delayed 4 hours in this crappy airport only to get on a really crappy plane. We were supposed to arrive in Tampa before 10 but wound up getting in like a red eye at 1230 am. Lost out on our ride home and we were so exhausted. I cried most of this flight home 2 1/2 hour flight. Nice staff but crappy plane. I am waiting to get a call to get reimbursed for my loss of time at work and the missed ride home."
Pros: "They double booked my seat and forced me to sit in an emergency exit row. Pretty sure this is against FAA regulation."
Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."
Pros: "El viaje de newark a san juan por united fue excelente. Por la linea aerea de American Airlines terriblemente FATAL. Habia un problema con el avion o la torre del vuelo miami hacia san juan PR. Nos ofrecieron estadia en un hotel supuestamente ellos corrian con los gastos ya q se atraso el vuelo y no fue culpa de ningun pasajero segun nos dijo una señorita del counter, resulta ser q el hotel fue el piso del aeropuerto de miami x 8 horas!!! Wow a la verdad q nos vieron la cara de bobos y nos cojieron de bobos tambien. Q trato mas injusto. No volveremos a viajar por AMERICAN AIRLINES asi mismo le dejaremos saber a todo el mundo el trato de esta linea con los pasajeros. Gracias a esto nos agravamos la espalda, costillas. Por culpa de ellos por tratarnos como basura. Eso no se hace!!!! Despues q estabamos sentados en el avion el piloto no llegaba y nos tuvieron q bajar del avion, esperar a que llegara otro piloto para volvernos a montar en el avion!!! Q mala coordinacion!! Esto es una falta de respeto!! Esta linea AMERICAN AIRLINES ES UNA PORQUERIA!!! No volvemos a viajar por esta linea JAMAS!!! Irresponsables!!"
Cons: "Nothing at all !!!! With AMERICAN AIRLINES THE WORST!!! We will NEVER travel by this linea aerea. Son una gran Porqueria!!"
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 arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "My flight to Atlanta was fine and went great"
Cons: "The flight back was delayed 3 times and the worse flying experience would have thought the pilot was a rookie very scary flight"
Cons: "We arrived at 3:20 for a 4:05 flight, attendant said we couldn’t board and were too late, I’m a Delta skymiles member and frequent flyer with American Airlines, I’ve never know an airline where you have to be there 50 minutes in advance, we were at the gate and they said no, how long does it take this horrible company to close the door."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "This is the cheapest for a reason, and honestly the worst airlines I’ve ever seen. Everything was horrible. 3 hour delay, flights canceled, and people everywhere. The weather wasn’t bad and all other airlines were running smoothly. Also, they charge for everything! Even carry on a and water cost money! Ghetto airlines for sure."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "I didn’t like that we had to pay for our snacks. I also had to pay for my carry on even though it was small."
Pros: "Flight took off and arrived on time."
Cons: "Navigating the Spirit Airlines web site is like dealing with a used car salesman; you have to watch every single step of the way, because they will add unnecessary, unwanted charges if you are not careful. After this trip, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I wish I had booked a 1-way flight, rather than round trip, so that I could return on a decent airline. There is a reason that Spirit gets a 1-star rating on www.consumeraffairs.com/ If I have to fly to Atlanta to Philadelphia again, I will take either United or Delta."
Cons: "At least 12 delay changes due to mechanical failure. Original departure was around 3pm on Sunday then it changed to 830pm, past midnight then 1 pm Monday. The gate staff was not trained to deal with customer service disputes. We were poorly informed about statuses. A food voucher was given to us minutes before any restaurant closed so I couldn't use it. I ended up booking another flight with another carrier. When the after midnight delay notification was rendered, I called the outsourced customer service and received no recourse for my inconvenience. Not even a comp checked bag. I was given two $50 vouchers but I don't plan to ever use them again. I'd rather have my refund plus the difference for the other flight and rental car I took just to get home. I also have lost wages."
Pros: "Flight was cancel and the flight customer service mention that it wasn't non refundable on the behalf of the flight I have a whole lot to say very disappointed this is the first time I ever flew and the action that were taking"
Cons: "Horrible experience not a reliable flight"
Pros: "This was the worst customer service I have ever had with any airline. Arrived 56 minutes before departure time but due to too many customers and attempts to let one of the reps know, that I was almost running late, by the time I retrieved my coupon, it was 4 min past their stupid 45 min check in time. And I was told there is nothing they could do but rebook for the next day. Never again will I travel on spirit. I would rather pay more than take the so call poor spirit"
Pros: "NOTHING. IT NEVER HAPPENED!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on short notice and I lost a lot of money in addition to the cost of this trip."
Cons: "I didn't realize the bag that I used as a carry on 2 1/2 years ago was now "too big" and I had to pay $57.00 each way - (to and from destination). I was told by another passenger that it was only spirit who does this. Thus making the "cheaper" airfare - NOT cheaper. Also - NO free beverage or snack. Must pay for those as well. My experience will make me totally rethink about using spirit airlines next time I travel."
Cons: "It took a bit longer to start boarding this flight, I'm not sure the reason. I just know that we began boarding closer to 2:40 than the 2:20 mentioned, which also led to a bit of a rushed boarding to get the flight out in time. After everyone was boarded and seated we sat at the gate for longer than normal as well. Of course, this may have been something to do with flying out of ATL? I know a lot of flights go through there so it wouldn't surprise me if there were mini-plane-traffic-jams."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "A lady helping to help us print boarding passes wasn't very professional. She just said, "you have to print your boarding passes before you go check in your bags." Her tone was commanding and rude. Could use improvement and some fine tuning. I know she didn't mean to be rude. Just needs more training. I got the notice of the gate change when I got home to Baltimore. And things are just too expensive. Even though I checked my bags and paid online, I still paid $40. Too expensive. And you pay for every little thing. I would fly Spirit again, but likely not my first choice."
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "We didn't die tragically young in a fiery inferno of plane parts."
Cons: "This is a very long list and repeats much of what I previously mentioned (hidden fees, lots of 'em), but I will add that at the gate there was some sort of mystery drama that led one of the staff members to some pretty exasperated proclamations. It seemed like a bunch of high schoolers running an airline with the amount of professionalism one might expect from a pep rally. We seriously had concerns about the staff's competence at that point. The strange smell just prior to take off and the instruction to close our vents so the plane could take off didn't do much to reassure."
Cons: "We checked in at the kiosk and then got in the baggage drop line and it was an hour long. Fortunately we were two hours ahead of schedule so we made our flight no problem. The poor couple in front of us missed their flight and was told that it was their fault by the front desk. The front desk person said that they had called for their flight and they should've responded. I can tell you that no one ever mentioned any flight. It wasn't like the line was to check in, it was only to drop the bags and it took forever. Very poor service and I feel so sorry for the people that we're headed to Texas and Missed their 7 o'clock flight. I find it also misadvertisement that we paid $49 for the flight one way and then had to pay $55 for the carry-on. Really the flight was for $104. Next time I will check for all and any options instead of Spirit and be willing to pay more money To go with another airline."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Tried their best to diffuse situation. Flight back was good, first flight to destination was terrible"
Cons: "Had to circle around ATL Airport for an hour and then rerouted to Myrtle Beach, SC. After plane was fueled, it got canceled and the only solution the company had was to have everyone take a bus from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta. 6 hour drive. Waited 5 hours for busses to arrive. A 3 hr flight turned out to be a 15 hr journey to destination. Crazy."
Pros: "Flight cancelled for no reason said weather but there was 12 other airlines going to Tampa also left us hanging refund would take 10 days. No comp of any kind. Will never use this airline again and strongly suggest you do not either. Our flight was only a one way and 1 hour flight and they couldn't even get that right. Talk with other passenger said this is the 4 Th time for him never again"
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination in time and as scheduled."
Cons: "There was no indication anywhere in the reservation process of the costs of bag checks and the "privilege" of a carry on. I was also never sent an email prompting me to check in online and check bags there. (I'm told it's rather cheap if you do it that way) Instead, I was greeted with a 49 dollar fee for my carry on, and 53 dollar fee for my checked bag. That was bumped up another 30 dollars when I discovered bags above 45 lbs are charged extra on spirit. I ended spending more than twice the value of my ticket just for bags, for markups I was never told of and could not of reasonably anticipated as a consumer. This, combined with less than professional conduct from spirit flight attendants, fellow passengers, and the ridiculously uncomfortable conditions on the plane, means I will never be flying with spirit again, and will trust kayak much less. As a comprehensive trip planning service, kayak should be able to generate plane travel costs, and have options to include associated costs such as baggage, with the price of the ticket in flight price tracking. This is a necessary feature for any company that provides a service like Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and accommodating. Very friendly (both pilots and the flight attendants)"
Cons: "Not knowing that a carry on and a check in costs over $50 each (spent over $100, luckily I had the funds but prior, there was no indication of the extra costs being that high) It would have been cheaper to FedEx my luggage. The seats are "pre-reclined" and I could not recline them anymore (I am a tall guy and was looking forward to leaning back a little). the seats were worn down with use (not appealing to the eye)"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendants. Very helpful and grateful they were willing to help me relocate to another seat forward of the rear."
Cons: "When I went online to purchase a seat the only one showing available was 28E at the far back of the plane. When I entered the random choice the assignment was 26C.... why was this one not shown??? And why couldn't I purchase a seat forward of the rear??? This flight was half empty. Thankfully the attendant moved me up to Row 11 which was totally empty. I do NOT like sitting in the back of the plane and that is why I try to purchase a seat over or forward of the wing. NOT a happy camper over this."
Pros: "I guess I don't like anything that spirit has - except for the price which I finally disliked"
Cons: "I have my flight at 9.30 AM and I was at the airport by 8.30 AM. I had to find out where the check in counter is and I was at the check in counter at 8.40. By the time my turn came, it was 8.50 and the agent said I am late as the gate closes 8.45 AM. There is no mention in the itinerary that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure and I was there 45 minutes before the take off. I didn't get a next flight. Now, I can't even cancel the return flight and I lost all the money for the trip. I called the customer service and they said they cant do anything except to book another ticket the next day. Why do they think I would ever travel with them again!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that my $100 flight went up 80% to $180 just to add one single bag then another $60 to check in at airport plus another $60 not to sit in back rows. I cancelled flight and took American Airlines for $147 which included everything that Spirit wanted to charge me $300!!!"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work, app check-in did not work, kiosk check-in did not work. Despite efforts to save money, I was forced to pay over $110 in additional fees. Service counter attendants were not friendly. I asked if I could fly standby on an earlier flight since I had gotten to the airport 4 hours early. I was told "This is not Southwest, you can't get on an earlier plane without paying $120 for it". Flight was changed to a new gate but wasn't updated on the monitor. I had to check flight aware to see what gate we were at. Flight attendants were rude and boasted about being the youngest flight crew in the sky, which is nothing to boast about. There are many veterans of the sky that exhibit amazing customer service and flight expertise. This Moto degrades those who have spent 20 + years in the sky making sure we are safe and comfortable. I would rather have a former fighter pilot with combat experience flying my plane. So spirit airlines, do I think you being young is an advantage over the other airlines, No. I care about customer service and safety. And I have yet to feel that from your airline. From the check-in counter to the flight attendants, the staff treats customers without respect and then charges you for it. I'm done."
Cons: "The staff was rude to us during boarding and they seemed to care less about helping people board. For example, we were trying to find a space in the overhead compartment, the flight attendant in the back of the plane was on her cell phone and she said "just keep looking for space." WOW!"
Pros: "The flight crew on the plane were very professional."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 5+ hours. The staff in the gate at the Atlanta airport were not trained well in how to handle situations like this. It took a very angry, frustrated group of customers venting to get them to try to get better updates than just reciting the time delay. We were to have left at 5:35, essentially dinner time. They didn't offer food vouchers or coffee/water, nothing until their PAYING CUSTOMERS became irate at the lack of information. After 3+ hours, they finally had people wait in line and they handed out 14.00 food vouchers, which was a pathetic response to the issue."
Pros: "Both flights boarded fast and left on time or early. I liked that I got everything I would normally get with a Delta flight for a lot less money. Sure they charge for drinks but I'd rather pay $3.50 for a coke than pay $150 to get it free on Delta. Seats were snug but so are Delta and American seats on most flights so I'm used to that and it was comfortable. And very cheap to upgrade to exit aisle or business class if more room is needed - which I did on the flight home because I had to work on my laptop. Staff was GREAT!"
Cons: "Tray tables are very small. Not enough room to work on laptop unless you upgrade to business class or exit aisle. Little armrest room so be prepared to rub arms with your neighbors. Don't make us listen to ads for your credit card promo. Hate when airlines do that because we are paying to be there and shouldn't be subjected to ads we can't get away from."
Pros: "Never fly this airline, they are horrible! I called several times about my flight because I knew I would be late trying to make the flight and they were rude. Customer Service is horrible. They cheat people out of their money smh. Terrible. I'm currently looking to sue!! Don't fly with them. No matter how cheap it is. Fly with Aleigant or Frontier first. Least they won't just keep your ticket money if you miss a flight they will make amends. SPIRIT is tacky, classless, and just overall a terrible airline. They need to be out of business. Seriously. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "The plane from Atlanta to LAX was new and comfortable. We met 2 friendly crew members in Atlanta at the gate that helped us because James at the check in counter was rude obnoxious and not helpful."
Cons: "Your website is the worst airline website I've experienced and I travel 5-6 times per year on other airlines. Somehow the baggage choices I made at booking did not register and you made sure I paid double at check in. You crew member James in Atlanta was rude and unhelpful. We couldn't understand what he was saying to us and when we asked him a question he was obviously annoyed that we spoke and let us know it. I manage a company with 90 employees in a sales enviroment and he would not work for me 10 minutes. Your business model is disingenuous at best and ends up being a rip-off. You advertise low rates on Kayak and other sites that say nothing about your baggage fees and extra charges. Only after the flight is booked do you find out about the extra, and may I say ridiculous, baggage charges. When the final bill is tallied any other airline would have been cheaper and the service would have been better. This was my first and LAST Spirit flight."
Pros: "Not one single thing!"
Cons: "Having to fly on Spirit, your crooked, deceitful, poor customer service ways. You are the bottom of the bottom! I can't believe that our government allows you to stay in business. Your planes are dirty, reeks of puke, and unsafe. It's only a matter of time before people start having health problems because of your dirty nasty planes and before the planes start falling out of the sky because of the old, poor maintained planes. Do us a favor and merge with another company who knows how to run an airline business like Southwest, American, Delta. Better yet, just SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Everything else. The crew was unenthusiastic, unhelpful, and borderline rude; I was forced to return to my seat multiple times while waiting to enter the bathroom, although other passengers were allowed to move freely. The bathroom in the front of the aircraft was out of service. No complimentary snack or drink is offered; you must pay for the limited selection of snacks and beverages avaialable. Everything from the seats to the menus were tattered; the pouch in back of the seat in front of me has not been cleaned before the flight so to my surprise, I found garbage as I reached for my menu. There is no form of entertainment available; no radio, televisions, or wifi. Nothing about the flight was pleasant and if it had not been the only direct flight available for my destination at the time, I would not have chosen Spirit. This was my first and, hopefully, last time flying with Spirit, barring an extenuating circumstances. You get what you pay for and with Spirit, that's not much."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, not even a free soft drink. There was a lady with 2 kids sitting directly behind us that talked the whole flight from Atlanta to New Orleans. It was rough."
Pros: "The crew. They were nice and respectful."
Cons: "There are kits of fees that you are not aware of until the day of the flight. I can't believe they charge $55 for a carry-on and they don't even give you water in the plane!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It felt like I was knickeled n dimed every time I wanted something I was charged not a big fan of that style of flying"
Pros: "There was a Hispanic gentlemen who told jokes over the intercom and was very nice to passengers"
Cons: "In general, the flight crew seemed jittery, restless, chattery. They seemed unaware that it was an early morning flight, and passengers might be trying to sleep. The lights were turned on halfway through the flight, which seemed inappropriate for those who wanted a quiet morning to sleep. I was in the last seat in the back, and the flight crew would keep shifting around their own luggage in a disruptive way, chatting at a higher volume than appropriate for sleeping passengers. And collecting trash every five minutes seems a bit much. Overall, the experience was the worst flight experience I ever had."
Pros: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Pros: "Left on time, quick boarding."
Cons: "They charge too many silly fees."
Cons: "Check in at Atlanta airport was a mess - there were several lines and it was not clear which line i should take to check in for my flight. Despite i arrived 2 hours before take off, I almost missed the flight."
Pros: "I like getting out of the airport and vowing to never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit's computer system had an "error" which marked me as a security risk. I had to go through intensive security screening TWICE. I was given a hand written ticket that was not honored at the gate stating their computer error has blocked me from flying. With this status I was unable to take my flight or rebook one. Luckily I got a full refund. Definately not worth the hassle and airport drama I will NEVER fly this airline again. I feel sorry for their employees who have to deal with such a shitty system."
Pros: "Someone was in my seat and had to wait till one minute before take off"
Pros: "If you're interested in a quick flight- UNDER $300 almost ANYWHERE**, THIS is the airlines to fly.. It's simple, fast, and got to my destination with little to no hiccups*"
Cons: "Wow, the comments below are all similar.. Look, Prices should be announced as: (ex) Atl to Orlando $160+baggage.. <--- I've heard SO MANY complaints from passengers about baggage fees.. Look, If it's one of the only ways to get extra income, then a simple carryon fee for $25 should be attached accross the board* Even IF someone didn't have a carry on, the $25 should still be within the ticket- THAT WAY, you won't have disgruntled customers having to cough up an extra $50-100+ at the check-in.. AFTER they probably spent too much on their travel.. (Not saying only poor people take Spirit, but there IS a reason people fly with them.. Because it's supposed to be economical*"
Pros: "The flight I ended up taking was quick and actually left on time"
Cons: "I had a 6 am flight. At 5 am we were told that it would be delayed until 10:30. At 8 we were told it would be delayed until 11:30. At 11:20 they announce that our plane landed and just needed to unload and get cleaned and we could start boarding shortly. Two minutes claret we were told the flight was cancelled. They told us everyone would fit on the 3:49 flight that would arrive in Orlando at 4:10. By that time I was tired of waiting and just wanted to get to Orlando so I asked to get on the flight to Tampa that was leaving at 12:15. The airline wouldn't get me a flight that was with delta that would have leaf at 6:55. They only offered a seat on one of their later flights, a refund, or a $7 meal voucher. That meal voucher wasn't even enough to cover the cost of a bagel and coffee. Also when I purchased the ticket it didn't say anything about paying for a carry-on bag. When I got to the airport I found out I had to pay $55 to take my carry-on. This was my worst flight experience."
Cons: "Seats are to close and small no space between the three not a happy camper"
Pros: "The low price flight ticket, until I realized it was $50 to check my bag. Would've rather flown a MUCH nicer carrier with half the bag price. Not likely to fly again unless it's crazy cheap for a short distance."
Cons: "Too expensive of a bag check fee. Small seats. No entertainment. No free food. Cheap, cheap, cheap. No thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Delays. Attitude from the gate"
Pros: "I liked the seat."
Cons: "I had no contact with flight attendant, and how could gate attendant let people on a flight that was nor schedule for the flight. I didn't like to be charged for every single thing, like printing a boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing, Pure bait and switch! The only thing about no frills, was the no frills! No anything, charge for everything, before you are done you pay more than other airlines, with horrendous service,(they don't talk on the phone to you, even to check in!), terrible personality of employees, seats that are plastic and Naugahyde, that don't recline. No food on board, at any cost except for chips and drinks for outrageous costs, no entertainment,(not even an airline magazine!) All of this because of low fairs, that are all bait and switch! Deplorable! As an ex flight attendant, that has flown thousands of miles during my flying career, and thousands since, this was the worst experience I have Ever had!"
Cons: "Everything! Horrific!"
