Cons: "Hard landing. Crew appeared agitated and on edge."

Cons: "Women at the boarding counter were rude and nasty."

Cons: "Boarding process in West Palm is always a mess. There has to be a better set up."

Pros: "An overall completely well done performance."
Cons: "Like to have reading materials. There was no :-/ magazine."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Told us when we got there. This is the first flight of the day. Shouldn’t have issues"

Pros: "Fast boarding and departure"

Cons: "The flight was full. A passenger behind me actually threw my overhead luggage at me and said he was entitled to space in the overhead. I only had that one bag and I too was entitled to that space and I was there first. I then replaced my bag up. Attendant did nothing."

Pros: "On time, accommodating staff"
Cons: "Lights didn’t turn on, screen kept blanking out"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "more tv channel selections"

Cons: "Flight was to full overhead compartments were full and was forced to move my bag to the back and then from middle of the plane had to wait til the end to get my Bag and get off the plane and the male steward(ess) has a bit of an attitude"

Cons: "We sat on the plane, on the ground for 2 hours."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"

Pros: "The team did their best to board the passengers and expedite cargo."
Cons: "Delay. Wasn't sure if pillows had to paid for."

Pros: "The seating space was just right, and thanks for the complimentary Sprite."
Cons: "The wifi/ flyfi did not work. The directv screen kept going offline. The complementary cookies ran out"

Pros: "The staff was great. Funny and great sense of humor, easy to work with and enjoyable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I basically paid for someone else’s seat. I got seated next to a gentleman who happened to be too big for his own seat and basically sat in half of my seat for the entire flight. I got half of a seat when I paid for a full one. I couldn’t put the armrest down because it went into his stomach so I had to have someone ontop of me for over 2 hours. It was very uncomfortable and just my luck the guy LOVED to talk. Talked the entire flight took out his phone and showed me all of his pictures. Video chatted his entire family while on the flight and didn’t bother to use the headphones he brought with him. So the entire flight go to hear his mother call him 15 times throughout the flight asking why he wasn’t taking a nap. It was honestly ridiculous. I put headphones in my ears and the guy still continued to talk to me. I tried to close my eyes and pretend to sleep that didn’t work. I had to keep running to the bathroom to just stand in there for some peace and quiet."

Pros: "Roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "very attending service and good communication"

Pros: "—"
Cons: "Why isn’t there enough checked bag space?? Why did 15 people have to check their bags at the gate — and then there STILL wasn’t room?? Why was the CHIP container taking up space in the overhead bin? There has to be a better solution, JetBlue. Do not check my bag after I brought it onto the plane and found a spot. The CHIPS should not be your priority — your customers should be."

Cons: "TVs didn’t turn on until we were 30,000 ft in the air, and also the WiFi didn’t work on my phone until then. Jetblue needs to improve their older fleets and technologies if they want to compete as a prominent domestic airline."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "DELAY DELAY DELAY NO TOOM FOR OVERHEAD LUGGAGE"

Pros: "space!!"

Cons: "Delayed departure"

Cons: "The seats just don't go recline enough. Still feels like you're sitting upright."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."

Pros: "Overall it was greate"
Cons: "The crew members"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "How could the flight attendants decide not to fly when thry arrived at the airport? Why couldn’t a new crew Be ready to fly home with the pilots ? Yes there was a 4 hour weather delay but the extra Tim was from midnight to 2:15 am and was the difference to us between a bad and horrible night . Ruined our vacation"

Pros: "Even though we had a nonrefundable fare, when due to "Quinn" we couldn't get to our extra-early flight, they put us on the next flight, and actually got us seats together. Nice work!!"

Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "Baggage was lost and no one seemed to know where it went. But then it turned up in my hotel a few hours later so at least it got worked out."

Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My overhead light didn’t work. My seat mates tv didn’t work. We were in 13 A & C"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."

Pros: "We arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule !! Amazibng"

Pros: "Free upgraded seat"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"

Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."

Pros: "Great crew. Good food. On time."

Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."

Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"

They said that seat or middle seat in row 29is only choice. I said we paid for upgrade. They said to ask for a refund at LAX when landing at midnight.

Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Pros: "You didn't let me of a schedule change on my fight, make wait another day. Now more delay today"

Cons: "I missed my original connecting flight in EWR because there was no gate available when we landed. After waiting several minutes, we taxiied to a different gate. I called customer service to let them know we were on the ground waiting for a gate assignment. Despite this, the flight boarded and left with several people missing the connection even though that flight pushed back later than its original time and departed almost an hour late. The plane was sitting there with the door closed. After that, I was put on the next available flight which was already delayed more than 2 hours. That delay extended even longer and was eventually cancelled due to weather. United CS reps were not willing to address passenger concerns. They closed the CS area in some portions of the airport forcing everyone to a very limited number of reps. I ended up having to rent a car and spending the first 5 hours of my birthday driving home. I should have been able to make my connecting flight and would have avoided the entire mess. Instead, I am out of my ticket price plus the additional cost of renting a car since my changed flight was cancelled due to weather not the gate assignment changes that originally caused me to miss the connection. What should have been a brief 4-5 hour trip ended up being almost a 20 hour day....United absolutely SUCKS!"

Pros: "Free Tv because of the delay."
Cons: "Hot as hell, AC terrible. Cramp"

Pros: "Both legs of flights went without a hitch"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Leg room"

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Cons: "United continues to drop the ball on every flights I take. I only fly them when I absolutely have to bring platinum on delta and mosaic on JetBlue. Consistently worse vs those two start to finish."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Cons: "United's inefficient practices resulted in a missed connection for which they did nothing to compensate me."

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"

Pros: "On time. Great staff. Very clean planes."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Umm how about we were 3 hours late and missed out flight and had to spend $200 to rent a car at 1130pm and DRIVE 4 hours home? Not to mention we missed our connecting flight due to delays on United on the 16th! No food and no entertainment NOT HAPPY"

Cons: "Had to pay if you wanted to watch regular tv."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"

Pros: "That everyone was drunk"
Cons: "People smoking on plane, very small seats/basically on top of passenger in middle, very long delays at airport and on runway"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Cons: "I had to leave in an emergency and they refused to give me my money back I left on Saturday instead of Monday and they refuse to return my money or give me credit for my flight"

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

Cons: "So uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Comfort, space, travel was smooth. Didn't purchase any food but it looked decent. There was no entertainment provided"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

Pros: "AtLantic City airport is New Jersey's best kept secret! Easy drive from my home. Sufficient parking, small airport, no confusing. Ni hassles. Love that airport and spirit airlines"

Cons: "as this is a low budget flight, it guarantees price add-ons and web site is set up to include some ad-ons if one is not carful."

Pros: "Went smooth on time"

Cons: "Lived up to its terrible reputation"

Cons: "Having to pay to check or carry on our bags and then not receiving any complimentary snacks drinks or entertainment was a travesty"

Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."

Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"

Pros: "seats need better cushions"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."

Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""

Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."

Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After an hour and a half on the plane, passengers were offered a glass of water and a small cookie. After the flight was cancelled, we waited in line for up to 3 hours for re-booking. No effort was made to make passengers feel comfortable, and communication of options/process was minimal, leading to a lot of confusion."

Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."

Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."

Pros: "On time and smooth ride"
Cons: "Notting"

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "They find a way to charge fees for everything, always delayed and terrible customer service"

Cons: "Plane engine was on fire so the flight got cancelled, told me I had to wait 4 days for a flight home to New Jersey, unless I went to and from a different airport (West palm to Fort Lauderdale). My transportation from the two airports was not compensated nor was the extra day of parking for my car, in Atlantic City, which I thankfully got a ride to from a friend, or that would have been another expense out of pocket."

Pros: "Overall value was very good, flight was smooth, seats were comfortable and crew was excellent."
Cons: "No TSA pre-screen, bags are 40, not 50 lb. minimum and the fee for overage is ridiculous. Had to wait to depart and then to gate at the destination due to "paperwork" issues. This easily made the trip 45 minutes longer than it should have been."

Pros: "timeliness"
Cons: "flight cancellation"

Cons: "Airplane made a constant barking sound during taxi before takeoff and after landing. Somewhat disconcerting."

Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min."

Pros: "DELAYED HALF AN HOUR AT THE GATE, THEN SAT ON THE PLANE FOR ANOTHER TWO AND A HALF HOURS. EXPLANATION WAS THEIR " COMPUTERS WEREN'T WORKING". TOOK OFF AFTER PILOT ANNOUNCED THEY HAD FIXED "ALMOST EVERYTHING". NO APOLOGIES, AND NOT EVEN A FREE BOTTLE OF WATER. THAT'S THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I FLY SPIRIT. INSULT TO INJURY? $90 TO CARRY ON A BAG ROUND TRIP!"

Pros: "The price of the ticket or fare"
Cons: "Unable to pay for my bank online. Then had to pay a higher fee at the airport"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, then cancelled. Fortunately, I got my $$$ back."
