Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Pros: "Crew were nice. They gave out cookies and chips."
Cons: "Families with kids should go second on the plane, not almost last. The air conditioning system was broken. The seats were hard on my bottom which made for a rough red eye flight. Hit tons of turbulence with no warning. I know you can see that ahead of time so just give us a heads up. They couldn’t get the bridge way to the plane so we sat for half an hour in the no ac plane instead of getting us a stair or other gate."
Pros: "That I eventually arrived."
Cons: "Everything else. 2 hours late???? F that."
Pros: "Swift boarding procesx"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Pros: "I had a very smooth flight from West Palm Beach to Boston. All of the guests got a beverage and a snack and it was a very calm flight."
Cons: "For some reason, my husband and I weren’t seated next to each other. We were, in fact, seated very far away from each other, but I was able to move us to window seats in different rows, but still we were seated apart."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Cons: "Plane was hot"
Pros: "Flight attendant great. Seats comfortable. Flight on time."
Pros: "The ease which they handle boarding"
Cons: "Not much attention from crew. Had to request food purchase twice, although crew was not busy."

Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."
Pros: "JetBlue's service"

Pros: "At check in, while checking my bag, the agent advised that since the flight wasn't full, and I wound have to claim my bag to transfer to an international flight, I could save some time by taking my bag on board. That worked out very well. I am very thankful for the good advice."
Cons: "crew member MICHAEL yelled and disrespected my wife during the flight offering no apology and holding to provide a US immigration card to us."
Pros: "Gate and check in staff were extremely helpful in placing us on an earlier flight."
Pros: "I got a seat by the emergency exit "for free" otherwise i had to pay extra for my seat. We pay a lot of money to fly,and i feel airlines nowadays give you less,and demand more money from us.its ridiculous..if i pay for my plane ticket,i shouldn't pay extra for a freaking seat."
Pros: "I can not honestly think of anything good to say"
Cons: "The seating, made me fill like a can of sardines."
Pros: "The crew on both flights were really nice and the flights were on time."
Cons: "The baggage fees are astronomical, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, the baggage rules that you can only bring one small thing on the plane is ridiculous and every time you log on to their website to do something, the fees get higher even if it's 2 minutes later. It's kind of insane."
Cons: "Needed to change the flight but couldn't. Money down the drain"
Pros: "Comfortable and clean airplane. Nice crew. I was prepared for the "no frills", no food and entertainment didn't bother me."
Cons: "The many plugs for passengers to purchase things or sign up for a credit card."
Cons: "Rip-off with the luggage fees"
Pros: "We arrived before the scheduled time."
Cons: "There were no complimentary snacks, no free carry-ons and the seat was the worst thing, so uncomfortable."
Pros: "When I called spirit on the phone they told me that I could take up a small suit case and they gave me the diemention so I talk 2 small suitcases When u got to the airport they told me that each suitcase will cost me $50.00 So told the staff I could have brought 1 suitcase and payed only 1 time $50.00 they said that they can't help me By paying all thease xtra charges and paying for snacks and drinks it does not pay to fly with them rather take any airline for a couple off dollars more and fly like a normal person with out all these extras"
Cons: "Flight got canceled. Attendants were very rude"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "They home of the bare fare is just that, bare. It gets you to the door of the airplane. Just you, no bags or carry on, no seat, no food. Also bag weight limit is 40 lbs compared to 50 in other Airlines. When you add up the price difference is minimal unless you are willing to travel with only the clothes you are wearing. Flight delay was the cherry on the cake. First time and last time for me."
Cons: "very uncomfortable cramped seating"
Cons: "THERE WAS NO FLIGHT FROM DALLAS TO FLL. We never boarded that connecting flight. I was one of the lucky ones that got a ticket to Orlando and moved to FLL in a BUS!!! The flight to Orlando was also another nightmare, when we landed Orlando, the bus took 2 hours to arrive to the airport plus the 4 hours to get to FLL. My experience was a complete nightmare. I arrived to destination 8 hours after the original plan. Needless to say that I am not flying with Spirit anymore."
Pros: "Spirit airline employees many great people. It causes their life and work to be a daily horror, with it policies and rules. Our crew member cared for a sick passenger so tenderly it was quite moving. She was as a mother to the entire passengers as the same time. Responding fast with a smile, cleaning up seats and area while gently dealing with other rude and upset passengers."
Cons: "Secret fees. Unkind Spirit airpline policies Poor company communication to clients Poor and unacceptable treatment of staffs."
Pros: "Nonstop option"
Cons: "Luggage fees"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "No services - didn't know you didn't get any beverages on board unless you purchase them. Would have bought a bottle of water before boarding."
Pros: "I didn't get o to this flight at all. Staff were very friendly, but completely overwhelmed and inexperienced. They were told to tell us that we had to switch flights because we wouldn't make the connecting flight, but in fact it was because the flight was overbooked. They said I'd get a hotel and then I had to take a taxi to the hotel where there was no room - as the hotel and had already informed the Spirit airlines staff. By the time I returned to the airport for a new hotel voucher it was 3am - and I'd been at the airport since 12am. Mostly it was also crazy to see the situations of other passengers with that airline. The staff were nice, but I wouldn't even feel safe flying with spirit again, much less like I'd be well served."
Cons: "no communication when 2 men taken off plane causing delays. no one to direct us to next flight. door of connecting flight shut in our faces (10 of us going on to Newark) and then plane sat at gate for 15 more minutes. discount coupon offered to spend the night costing more than other hotels in area. no transportation provided to hotels. no food or water provided. Spirit ticketing agents disappeared and left for the day leaving hundreds of us seeking rebooking and help. given a card to rebook "Online" but I'm 75 and don't own a smartphone, therefore not an option for us. waited in line 3 HOURS to get rebooked!!!!!.."
Cons: "Flight cost less then a hundred dollars but our luggage cost over $220??? I get the pay for what you use, but $55 per carry on and $50 for luggage and only up to 40 pounds where other airlines are 50 pounds. Would not fly with this carrier again, JetBlue or SW are much better options in this market."
Cons: "Comfort packed like sardines"
Pros: "Plane has more leg room than most other airlines."
Cons: "General ticket prices are so cheap because the airline doesn't openly broadcast their policy about carry on and checked bag fees. These are more expensive than any other airline I've flown with. I've never heard of an airline charge for carry on baggage which was very disappointing to say the least. This flight was a basic "no frills" trip, meaning that you get the bare minimum snacks, with a tiny seatback tray that isn't even big enough to hold an iPad. Won't be flying with Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS, charge for everything"
Cons: "The airline overbooked, gave my seat away, and left me stranded for a day without my luggage. Was not aware before buying the flight that you must pay for all baggage. Poorly run and not accommodating."
Pros: "Delayed, extra hidden costs, Crue was telling profanities because one passenger vomited."
Pros: "overall travel experience"
Cons: "paying for snacks/drinks"
Cons: "No reclining seats. Have to buy water. Couldn't sleep on the red eye which led to the rest of vacation being difficult."
Pros: "first flight was fine"
Cons: "I flew form DFW-Fort Lauderdale and it was fine. My flight from Fort Lauderdale-San Juan was a disaster. I boarded the plane and took my assigned seat as usual. Little did I know someone else was assigned the same seat as me and it was a family of 4( the parents and two kids) the Lady was extremely rude because I was sitting on her kids seat. The flight attendant asked me to move and wait in the back of the plane until every passenger has seated. I wish she could've been more nice about the situation. I felt as it was my fault for booking a ticket with Spirit. Anyway, I walked to the back of the plane to wait until people were done boarding. Another flight attendant in the back were just staring at me as if I was taking over her space without even asking how was I doing, no greeting or anything that a customer deserve. Everyone boarded the plane and eventually they found an open spot on row 10, by the EMERGENCY exits, I dislike those seats, but nobody asked if it was ok for me to seat there. I was willing to wait for another plane if possible, but I felt like the whole crew did not care about the situation. The add more to the mess, I sat on that one open spot that was left and that area of the plane was freezing. I was wearing a tank top which made things worse. My whole flight was a mess, crew wasn't friendly or helpful, no one oppologize for the incovenient and no one actually care in fact made me feel guilty for buying a ticket with this airline. I work in customer service and this is not how you threats people."
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat from 29A to 3E to accommodate a family who wanted to sit together. I was told that 3E was a better seat. 3E turned out to be a nightmare. A row away was a child who screamed for 75% of the flight but that wasn't the worst part. 3E was situated between a man and a woman who must have weighed 450 pounds! I literally had half of a seat for the entire flight. I really feel that I should be reimbursed because of how uncomfortable I was forced to fly for the entire flight. A person of that size should not be squeezed into a row of three seats."
Cons: "The tray table was dirty and it smelled like vomit. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight form San Jose to Chicago in Fort Lauderdale. Both Flights were Spirit. Had around 2 yrs to get from my flight from San Jose to the chocago flight. By the time i went thru customs (huge line) then thru security (another huge line) i got the the gate at 7:38 A. M. My flight was scheduled to leave at 7:42 A.M.. I understand that you do need to close your gates a little earlier, but i was not the only one that had the same itenerary and missed the flight. Its just hard to understand that you must have a record of who is missing on that flight and since you know they are at the airport (because we came in from San Jose on your flight) not to at least wait until 7:42 to close the gates. There was no one at the gate, the gate was closed as we watched the airplane sit there without moving for at least another 10 minutes. Its beyond logic and the only way i can explain that in my mind is that your record of competing with other airlines of being on time is more important to the airline than the customers themselves. Which is very sad. Then i stood in line for one and a half hours just so i can speak to someone on what my next step should be. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to miss your flight and then have to stay in line for another hour and a half in that stress? As i stood there and watched the couple in front of me being in distress and his girlfriend crying i realized how unfriendly Spirit Airlines is ti its cutomers. Then finally i get to the representitve to be told i can get a flight out at 6:15 P.M. That is 10 and half hours later. So i inquired, can we use another airline or even an alternative airport to resolve the long wait, of course i was told no without any explanation. So, i had my office search for a flight for me and they found one for 101.00 to Midway with Southwest Airlines leaving at 10:15 A.M., but since i was in a different terminal and would have to go thru security, i would not make it. Very frustrating to think since your air line is the one that propsed the itenerary for me, would not back me up when i missed the flight with no fault of mine. Afterall, Spirit sold me that Itenerary, they should have been aware that it can take longer than two hours to make it to the next flight. But, what really has me steaming is you could not even have more than one person to help at the counter for the people that missed their flight, because if you DID then i could have had time to book the Southwest flight. Due to your lack of concern about the customers in general my company nor I will ever use your services again. I know that probably doesnt break your heart, but me being in business now for well over 30 years,i can gaurantee you eventually if you do not change your practices, it will affect your bottom line. One last note. I overheard another frustrated customer asking if they will give him any food vouchers, and he was stared down for a few seconds and then a simple "no"."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "$55 for carry-on, $4 for snack, no entertainment, no Internet, no reclining seats"
Pros: "Tickets are inexpensive and beverages reasonably priced for an airline."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. They don't even recline. You get what you pay for I guess."
Pros: "I was lucky in getting a seat at the front of the plance (4A) which was more comfortable that my previous flights where I sat more to the rear where there was less leg room. the departure was on time and the flight was very comfortable. courteous staff"
Cons: "my check on luggage cost $50 where I expected to pay $25. I now know to create an account for myself if making travel plans directly with Spirit."
Cons: "Late take off and arrive. Then flight back was cancelled. I was stuck in trying to get home to my son."
Cons: "Half our luggage didn't arrive"
Pros: "WOW! Super impressed with the staff. I hadn't flown spirit in years because I had such bad memories about the spirit credit card (false promises) and bad experiences with the staff. But EVERY spirit person was great. From check in, to the flight attendants, to pilots, to people at the boarding gate… really great team now in 2016"
Cons: "Those seats NEED to recline. You have to fix this on your planes. I couldn't sleep I was so uncomfortable and I can usually always sleep…. Pleaseeee recline those joints"
Cons: "Had no seat assignments until last minute. They were all confused about seating the last few people. Actually on the plane trying to find seats for two people. Spirit is the worst airlines"
Cons: "Uncomfortable sitting ! Very bad"
Cons: "Everything, $55 per carry on is totally ridiculous. Web site is a diseaster, flight attendents were clueless, communication was non existant...Total Nightmare...told everyone to NEVER fly Spirit..you sooo need to get your act together"
Cons: "Try getting charged for your bags only to then get stuck paying even more for your seats because the only ones left. The last available seats where in an exit row and I was forced either to pay extra to check my bags in at the airport or choose and pay for the last available seats. Either way they squeezed every last penny out of us."
Cons: "Very rude crew at the airports and gates. Away from being helpful. Flight attendants were nice though."
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: "the only thing I liked were the passengers"
Cons: "Everything else was terrible! Disorganized gate, disorganized check in, we left 5 hours late and then we were told the staff needed to be changed for this domestic flight, they did not have a sticker on the plane registered so they had to fill out paperwork for an hour after we were delayed and sitting on the plane, there were only two hosts working the beverage service and they only came around one time until the end of the flight to collect trash. It was very crammed and I would never take a Spirit flight again!"
Pros: "That it was short, but that's due to geographical luck .. nothing your airline did."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost one hour My luggage was delayed because of rain and all my clothes was soaking wet."
Cons: "Had no idea that Spirit was the king of nothing included. Will never fly them again"
Cons: "Spirit raped me on extra fees making the price of my two tickets double with baggage fees alone and we only had 2 bags with us and one checked."
Pros: "It flew me from Boston to Florida."
Cons: "The seats don't recline. Everything is an upsell on Spirit including checking in ($18!). It wouldn't surprise me if they put bill acceptor at the bathroom door to pay $3 a flush. If you are over 5 feet 10" this will be the most uncomfortable plane ride of your life so beware the cheap flight price."
Pros: "hidden fees, chaotic boarding and flight 4 hours. late. Never again"
Cons: "I could not take the trip."
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, didn't realize it would be so expensive to have a carry on/check a bag on spirit"
