Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Friendly crew

Cons: Our flight from Houston to Vegas was delayed for four hours. Once we got to the airport, Spirit informed us that they were tacking on an additional hours worth of delay for a grand total of five hours. I asked if we could be moved to another airline and the guest services person looked at me as if I was speaking a foreign language and had no concept of what it was I was requesting. The terminal area around Spirit was filthy. It stood out just how unkempt the area was at our gate. Can’t blame this solely on Spirit but it definitely left an impression. Finally boarded after five plus hours and once on, that’s when I realized leg room was not really a thing on Spirit. I was literally sitting spread eagle because if I tried to sit straight, my knees would then be digging into the person in front of me. That wasnt an issue for the screaming children behind me, however. They had absolutely no problem karate choopin’ my chair for pretty much the entire three hour flight. The one bright spot was the crew, they were great but not enough to offset the overall experience which was thoroughly miserable.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The flight was delayed almost 7 hours. Nobody was updating us about anything. It was ridiculous. I have a tailbone injury and it's bad enough I have to sit on the plane for so long but to sit in the airport and waste my entire day of just sitting in pain. Unacceptable.

EWR
DTW
Excellent 8.0

Pros: The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight.

Cons: My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR.

ORD
CLE
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing, to be honest.

Cons: Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years.

Okay 5.3

Pros: Everything that happened before the FIRST time we boarded the flight and when we finally landed in LA. The movie selection was pretty good since I couldn’t sleep on the flight and it calmed me down. The flight that was originally 7 hours turned into 5

Cons: What Irritated me the most about this whole experience was that they waited until everyone had boarded and seated to find a maintenance problem. Credit to them for finding it before takeoff but it should’ve been caught before the plane even left the hangar or when the plane last landed. They said this would be a 15-20 min fix. This was an 8pm flight. 800 became 830, then 9. By 9:00, same problem and I start to wonder if we should switch planes. By 10, they finally tell us that we have to deplane and go to Gate 37 which is on the other side of the terminal. On the way out the flight attendant tells us that we have to hurry up to the other gate because we have to be there by 10:25 to board. I almost wanted to punch him. So we’re there. 10:25 comes and I see the screen turn to 10:40. Around 11, the announcement comes that they’re transferring the food from the other plane to our new plane which further delayed everything. As some kind of compensation, theyleft buckets of snacks and drinks for us prior to boarding as we finally boarded. Finally took off at 12:30. I was so irritated I couldn’t rest on the flight.

Okay 5.6

Cons: I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me...

Good 7.6

Pros: Upgraded seat on the Boeing 777 was near the exit, and I had plenty of legroom.

Cons: Although British Airways and American Airlines are alliance partner companies, their systems don’t behave as such. It took me too many attempts to mention in order to simply upgrade my seat. The booking locator number is different for both airlines, and no one ever informed me of that critical information

Okay 5.6

Pros: Half the passengers were sleeping in rows to themselves. I’m 6’5” with a bad back and was stuck in an aisle seat, unable to even rest much less sleep. I get that those seats were available for purchase, but after the doors close it seems ridiculous to not let a customer sit there, ESPECIALLY is taller folks!!!! One could make the argument that it’s less safe as well, seeing how there’s no one IN the exit row to help open the window in the event of an emergency. I like Jetblue but this policy is likely to keep me from flying them if I can fly for just a bit more $ and have comfort.

Cons: Heartless rule, give the flight attendants power to make customers happy...healthy!

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Friendly crew

Cons: Our flight from Houston to Vegas was delayed for four hours. Once we got to the airport, Spirit informed us that they were tacking on an additional hours worth of delay for a grand total of five hours. I asked if we could be moved to another airline and the guest services person looked at me as if I was speaking a foreign language and had no concept of what it was I was requesting. The terminal area around Spirit was filthy. It stood out just how unkempt the area was at our gate. Can’t blame this solely on Spirit but it definitely left an impression. Finally boarded after five plus hours and once on, that’s when I realized leg room was not really a thing on Spirit. I was literally sitting spread eagle because if I tried to sit straight, my knees would then be digging into the person in front of me. That wasnt an issue for the screaming children behind me, however. They had absolutely no problem karate choopin’ my chair for pretty much the entire three hour flight. The one bright spot was the crew, they were great but not enough to offset the overall experience which was thoroughly miserable.

Pros: Check in kiosk from airport hosted services

Cons: Counter Crew performance / speed to respond to time. We had arrived early enough but at stood in line for 1 hour which pushed the clock and we couldn’t use the reataurants.

Pros: The flight attendants were accommodating and friendly. The ticket agent was also very helpful.

Cons: Trying to get help at check-in was a fiasco. The seating is cramped. Not having WiFi is a drawback. We were stuck waiting for the plan to take off for 40 min because bags apparently were being loaded.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Quick boarding and on time take off

Cons: The new fare basic coach doesnt allow carry ons even for money! I had to check my carry on for $30, unlocked with all my medication and valuables. I had NO idea I couldn't take a small carry on. That's insane. Worse than Spirit, which is not saying much. At least you can pay for a carry on with Spirit. They forced me to check my unlocked bag. United used to be one of my favorites. Its lower than Spirit now. Beware!

Good 7.6

Pros: Groundstaff at check in were very good. Quick and professional. Legroom was better than average without paying extra. Staff were very attentive and helpful.

Cons: The system wouldn't let me check in online. I rang JetBlue,very unhelpful, they could find no record even though I gave them confirmation and flight details. They said try checking in with American airlines as the second leg of journey was with them,no good there either.

JFK
Good 7.3

Pros: Staff on the flight was friendly and helpful

Cons: Late departure from Portland created a late arrival in New York- the gate door was closed when I got there. Scheduling connections as tight as you did came very close to leaving me in New York. Jet blue staff in Portland was less than helpful when I expressed my connection concerns ( wanting to rebook to a latter connection before I left Portland). Stop treating people like chattel

JFK
Okay 5.6

Pros: Half the passengers were sleeping in rows to themselves. I’m 6’5” with a bad back and was stuck in an aisle seat, unable to even rest much less sleep. I get that those seats were available for purchase, but after the doors close it seems ridiculous to not let a customer sit there, ESPECIALLY is taller folks!!!! One could make the argument that it’s less safe as well, seeing how there’s no one IN the exit row to help open the window in the event of an emergency. I like Jetblue but this policy is likely to keep me from flying them if I can fly for just a bit more $ and have comfort.

Cons: Heartless rule, give the flight attendants power to make customers happy...healthy!

Pros: The staff was friendly and hospitable which is not common anymore. I fly a lot and find that the airline service has become so cold and not accommodating anymore... so sad!

Thank you for an amazing flight both ways different crew as well!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing, to be honest.

Cons: Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight.

Cons: My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Not much besides the Flight crew was kind.

Cons: Spirit airlines charges you money for water!!! For water!!! I was on a four and a half hour flight from LA to CLE, and didn’t bring my credit cards or a bottle of water with me. I could t get a bottle of water because they charge for them. How is that even legal? I sat thirsty considering drinking the water from the airplane lavatory. Beyond that the seats don’t recline and you get nickle and dined for everything. I would never fly this airline if I didn’t need to travel to CLE where they appear to be one of if not the most dominate airline.

Cons: The flight was delayed almost 7 hours. Nobody was updating us about anything. It was ridiculous. I have a tailbone injury and it's bad enough I have to sit on the plane for so long but to sit in the airport and waste my entire day of just sitting in pain. Unacceptable.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
