Long story short, I was told repeatedley by jet blue and tsa that there is no issue and that the flight was not going to leave without me.

After being assures several times by tsa and jet blue staff i was okay, i finally made it to the gate and lo and behold, its closed,"

I don’t mind as long as I don’t find out later I was charged $25."

Cons: "The food was pretty basic."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta.

Pros: "great flight , on time, great service"
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."

Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"

Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was helpful with a wheelchair passenger, and get everybody else on board soon after. We depart the gate a couple of minutes early, and arrived almost half an hour early."
Cons: "The first class seat were not much more spacious than the comfort+ ones. Choice of snacks were limited as it was a short regional flight. No overhead or seat back entertainment, but you can stream from the media server through in flight wifi."
Pros: "Great stewardesses, good food"
Pros: "We had 35 minutes from landing in MSP to takeoff for BOS. We came in on gate C20 and our departure was for C5. The gate person could not confirm the gate so we hailed a vehicle to take us. The driver added 2 more to our cart which slow us down appreciably. We got to the gate and they hadn't started boarding. My wife went to the Ladies Room and I walked over to the desk. The boarding flight was going to LA!! Our flight was going out C11! I had to ask a woman to go into the restroom and yell for my wife to get moving! We made it but I don't know how. Typical Delta!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was on-time and most often overlooked (but most important) we got there safely."
Cons: "The seat on this 737-800 was uncomfortably narrow. This was likely due to the table-tray being in the seat armrest. I had to remove everything from my side pants pockets and even then was not particularly comfortable. This is particularly annoying because I usually avoid this by flying comfort plus. However, on this itinerary, Delta would not allow me to give them money for Comfort plus, because it was a domestic leg on an itinerary including stops in Asia. Such a baffling policy!?!?"
Pros: "Satellite TV on this flight was perfect! I got to watch a football game live that I really wanted to watch, but conflicted with this flight. It was great! The leg room was good and the seat was comfortable on this short flight. The lighting was appropriate for an 8pm-12am flight. Crew was nice"
Cons: "nothing to note here on this one."
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Im 6'2. My knees still are hurting due to the horrible leg room"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I like the fact that I was able to get on this"
Cons: "Delta is completely messed up. My luggage was supposed to travel with me to Boston. But it didn't. Delta waisted my time. Horrible customer su"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Cons: "Family of 6 with 3 minors. Could not sit any of us together."
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Cons: "After a grueling 14 hour flight back to the states from Asia, got notification that my Delta flight was further delayed an additional 3.5 hrs from the layover of 2hrs, so I was at the airport for a good part of the day and did not get home till midnight. Altogether 24+ hrs of no real sleep. To add insult to injury, a Delta representative called and apologized, offering a $100 voucher or gift certificate. Raised expectation that they might actually do the right thing. I then received a Delta email that says "Your day just got better", except there was nothing but ads and enter to bid for things. Overall bad experience when I really needed them to get me home on time."
Cons: "Too cramped for a flight more than 90 mins - even in the "comfort+" section. This plane configuration is fine for much shorter flight routes"

Cons: "Video system on plane had too many commercials."
Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "airplane needed to be vacuumed"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "They switched me to better seats"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "Very enjoyable trip."
Pros: "All flights were on time."
Cons: "In Atlanta when I changed planes the gates were to far from each other. In different terminals."
Cons: "no food. no entertainment"
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."

Pros: "Seat assignment very comfortable!!!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff, nice free snack. Overall good experience."

Cons: "I don't have any negative feelings"
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy seats, easy flight"
Cons: "Sudden gate change. Seems like it was a little last minute, but the boarding team handled it pretty well."
Pros: "Because of our delayed flight, which made us miss our flight departure at our layover location, we were upgraded to Comfort+. I'm happy that it was recognized that we were going to be delayed 2 hours to our destination, and were given a more comfortable flight because of it."
Cons: "Delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight. Delta was quick to fix the issue and upgraded our seating to Comfort+. Time lost for vacation was my only issue."
Pros: "Small jet, 2 seats on each side, so every seat is either aisle or window seat. On return trip, pilot landed safely in bad weather at night."
Cons: "Not departing on time, but better than overlooking needed maintenance, though unnerving that it was needed. No advance notice that carry-on bags would be checked at the jetway, which could have an impact on what you pack versus carry."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Cons: "ages they don’t came"
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "What I absolutely adored is that I left my phone in Philly, and the gate agents put it on the next flight up to Boston. I picked it up from American Luggage Services in Boston the next day. Priceless!"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system, comfortable seating, decent refreshment service for such a short trip."
Cons: "The flight didn't board until an hour and a half after the original scheduled time, and despite boarding quickly, we didn't take off for even longer. Because of the long wait, it would have been nice to have been offered a snack in addition to the beverage that was served during the flight."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Was able to switch to a different flight as a standby"
Cons: "The 7:00 flight was delayed for an hour and then delayed for another 2. Meanwhile, the 8:00 flight was called for boarding. It was very frustrating. Those of us who got in line quickly were able to fly standby on the 8:00 flight. I felt the airline did not treat us honestly. I believe the reasons for the delays were known long before the delays were communicated to passengers. (For example, there was a new delay announcement at 8:00 for a flight scheduled to leave at 7:58). Had we been informed earlier, people could have made alternate plans if they wanted to do so (e.g. Rent a car or reschedule for the next day.)"
Cons: "Pandamonium boarding process. If you're traveling with elderly, you need to pay for priority boarding to help them get on the plane at a pace they can sustain. There was a bad sewage smell on the plane. No in-flight entertainment, not even music. Very unfriendly gate agents; won't even acknowledge your alive as they take your boarding pass. I hate flying American Airlines. Flying is lousy these days. American takes it to a new level."
Cons: "A very rude flight attendant. I think her name is Anna. Very unpleasant, should not be employed in service or hospitality industry."
Pros: "nice people"
Cons: "cramped seats, lousy snacks"
Pros: "The crew was courteous, friendly, and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked by ten, leaving the possibility of my reservation not being honored and missing the flight."
Cons: "Flight was on Tarmac for an extended period of time without any explanation from the crew. The baggage claim was disorganized and took a long time to get luggage."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "My seat had a broken entertainment console. Flight crew was indifferent and would not collect my trash (drink cup, purchased food box) for almost two hours. the purchased food, vege chips and hummus, was skimpy and outrageously priced. I feel their attitude toward me was the same as a passenger gets on the average subway car."
Pros: "The crew on board were incredibly kind and sweet"
Cons: "The crew at the gate seemed a bit short and flustered. The gate area was chaotic and crowded. Not a good way to go into a red eye flight."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing...this was a disgusting experience"
Cons: "Absolutely the worst flying experience of my entire life, it is dispicable that American Airlines can get away with treating humans like this. They never got me home, and refused to refund my for my trip..absolutely dispicable, I am never flying AA again and I am NEVER using KAYAK again for doing business with such a revolting company, this is the last dollar of mine either one will ever see!"
Pros: "Business Class seat"
Cons: "People using forward lavs"
Cons: "Packed light with no toiletries in our carry on to avoid having to go to baggage claim. They announced anyone in groups 3 or 4 had to check their bags. We checked our bag, boarded the plane, and there was PLENTY of overhead space. Wasted 35 minutes at baggage claim."
Pros: "Everyone I interacted with was wonderful including the personnel at the terminal."
Pros: "Arranging wheelchair for my husband in Boston. Changing from row 23 to row 7 for easier access. Pleasant personnel."

Pros: "First time flying. Good overall experience"

Cons: "Received call at 1:00 am cancelling my flight at 5:00 am which I had scheduled for weeks. Had to find another flight from Richmond, Virginia to Oklahoma City. Finally find a way with a four hour layover in Dallas."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the process was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the flight was supposed to be an 1 hr and ended up being 2 hours & 20 min"
Cons: "Not their fault, but stuck on plane in NY because boston was having weather. Just felt like we could have been informed sooner than we were."
Pros: "My original flight was canceled and booking agent was able to get me on the earlier flight."
Cons: "Stewardesses did not pick up trash near the end of the flight. I had to hold it until we landed."
Cons: "Cramped seating and lack of entertainment."
Pros: "Good food, my wife is gluten free and she ate well too. Snacks and drinks throughout the flight, and all the Tim Tam I could eat, if you haven't had Tim Tam, just try it and you'll be hooked."

Cons: "No personal entertainment centers for individual passengers."
Pros: "comfortable plane, outlets"
Cons: "major delays, got incorrect information from gate attendants several times."

Cons: "Wish it had been a longer flight! It was perfect in every way."
Cons: "Have they made the seats shorter and narrower? I op t ed for exit and extended legroom seating and I still felt cramped and constrained."

Pros: "Flight was easy. Attendants were OK"
Cons: "No funeral clothes.Daily medication lost.SO MAD"
Pros: "Assigned seating"
Cons: "Crew was salty"
Pros: "Having had a rough day of 10 hours of travel, arrived at Ticket booth to check in when I DROPPED MY HOT SOUP!! Mr. SAM B Told me not to worry, have a seat and proceeded to buy me another cup of soup and gave me a GIANT hug!! It's an understatement to say he surpassed my service expectations! he should be commended. This random act of service and kindness was witnessed by many other passengers. I"
Pros: "Boston is beutifull and cool in summer."
Cons: "Charlotte airport is way to small and smells bad. Very crowded. Distance between seats on tha plane is too small. Killing my knees."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "1 hour delay with everyone in the plane. They claimed the mechanics were waiting for a "piece". Shouldnt they check the plane before the people get on board?"
Cons: "My flight was delayed due to error at the airport"
Pros: "Fast and simple. Polite personnel."
Cons: "No cranapple juice"
Pros: "It got me there in good time once it was in the air."
Cons: "The flight departed about an hour an a half late, no fault of the airline I suppose. But there was some turbulence on a part of the trip. The flight attendendants were given the nod to start serving but by the time they got up the flight was on its glide path down. So we had the whole wait time and flight with no refreshments."
Pros: "Biscoff cookies for everyone!"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. :("
Pros: "amazing crew, very clean"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Pros: "It was a regular nothing different flight then what was expected."
Cons: "Need to develop the entertainment system to become at least minimumuly adequate. I have learned to treat these flights as buses in the air."
Cons: "It began going downhill at the United Lounge, where I put two chairs together to get a little sleep since my flight was scheduled to leave at 12:30am. I was summarily woken up and told that it wasn't appropriate to sleep in a lounge. I complained at the front-desk (politely) and was told ... "This is a lounge". Oh and yes, the Wifi wouldn't connect and the food was stale ... so I left, and found a very nice sofa in the concourse. On the flight, service was non-existent, whoever was in the galley was clattering things about, despite the fact that this is a short red-eye flight ... the coffee was awful. The steward forgot to give me my coat and I had to ask twice AFTER we landed and were leaving the plane to get it. By contrast, Lufthansa has daybeds and a special quiet area to snooze, and offer pillows and blankets. Clearly, the Germans are louche compared to Americans."
Pros: "i hated the expirience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Cons: "i hated the experience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Pros: "A competent cross country flight."
Cons: "Very cramped. Having 2 aisles did help."
Cons: "All of the restaurants in the airport have changed to this "high-end" bistros. No fast food anywhere except the premade wraps and stuff at the kiosks. If you need food fast don't try to sit down and eat. My sandwich took 30 minutes to come out. Food was ok."
Pros: "The check in was great. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was very small and hot. There was no space for even my legs."
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."
Pros: "Movie deal was enjoyable. But a tough week for the friendly skies!"
Cons: "Mechanical caused me to miss my connection. Exterior of 777 had paint peeling off the fuselage, which is a bad sign. Plane needs an overhaul"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, inefficient food service and pricey, and entertainment is a rip off."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "Great employees!"
Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight was better than the outgoing leg because of the different aircraft and the crew."
Cons: "The seats were too tight as usual. Too many people for a small space."
Pros: "a complete circus~! Reservations were messed up by someone and caused me to miss my direct flight. Overbooked."
Cons: "I am very sick man. Airline was supposed to have wheelchair waiting for me. They didn't at departure or arrival. I almost missed my flight waiting for it so I just walked. Which almost killed me. I have doctors appointment tomorrow. Very awful airline"
Pros: "There was not one glimpse of positive in this experience."
Cons: "Upon arrival to Newark there was no gate agent available to check in with for the first two hours of the delay. In the air there was no food or drink service. The plane loaded at 1230 but did not push back from the gate for almost another hour. Upon arrival in Boston we spent near another hour on the tarmack waiting for a gate free up with very little comunication. I got to Boston 5 hours after I had intended to with no ability to give my rid from the airport any info for when I would be getting off the plane. The whole time dance moms rotated between a different show but must have come on 3 times with no ability to shut the screen off and take a nap. No compensation was offered in any way."
Pros: "The flight was nice"
Cons: "I needed more leg room. I'm a big man I was in the middle seat."
Pros: "Good flight arrived early and upgrade available"
Pros: "Someone stole my seat and asked me to sit in theirs, but ended up being a window seat!"
Pros: "Price was really great; service and flight were also very good."
Cons: "on my reservation, my name is spelled wrong and I cannot get this corrected. United rewards program will not recognize me. It is William, not Willim. Can you correct it? United agent said he could not fix this, he also thought it might effect me going through security but did not on my out bound flight."
Pros: "This was the final leg of my flight. At this point I just wanted to be home."
Cons: "Their was no food or entertainment in this flight. I would rather of not connected home they Chicago being that the trip was Boston to Cancun it made for a cumbersome travel and would avoid it in the future."
Cons: "The plane was very hot had alot of cancellations missed my daughters army graduation it was all out bad and I could not get ahold of anyone from kayak had to get help from United will never use this again ..if it was refundable I would have just not went at all"
Cons: "It was 4 hours late."
Pros: "The pilot was great. Understanding that all passengers were tired with traveling and the flight delayed he did everything he could to get us to our destination quickly and safely. I could tell he was excellent at his profession. Kudos to all the flight staff!"
Cons: "I was most upset that a bottle of tequila I bought in the duty free store in the cancun airport was confiscated by tsa in Houston. I know this was not united's fault but perhaps my discontent can be forwarded to the proper people. I went through all the correct procedures to transport this via a connecting flight and through no fault of my own had it taken from me. It seems like sort of a scam that travelers are told they can purchase these items and legally transport them home only to have them not make it through security at the connecting airport. I was not the only one this happened to. Bad form!"
Pros: "the flight was very short"
Cons: "DID NOT like the way the boarding attendant treated me!!!"
Pros: "Thank You. Everything was great!"
Cons: "I feel bad for marking Food and Entertainment as poor; however, they were really both "not applicable". Please add another column. I'm sure the review will look much better :-)"
Pros: "This was a 4 hour flight. A TV would have been nice."
Pros: "United airlines reasonable rates And sevices"
Cons: "The delays was awful I'm disabled wasn't offered no assistant to get from one terminal to the next because your flight delays we waited 3hours to go from Chicago to Boston then get on plane and wasn't offered but a swallow of soda that was poured out of a twelve ounce can split between three customers And I'm diabetic my sugar was low because the unexpected delay So that made a perfectly good trip awful"
Pros: "Space was cramped, crew inattentive, coffee was undrinkable and tv would not turn off or play movies."
Cons: "See above. Will try to avoid United in the future."
Cons: "Our flight to San Francisco was canceled"
Pros: "Free direct TV was a bonus. We appreciated the extra space in the United plus seating (which does cost quite a bit extra)."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. Good choices were VERY limited in United Bistro. No good options for people that are sensitive to spicy foods."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Baggage was not assigned a carrousel. After asking where it will show up, I received a verbal carrousel assignment. Almost a hour after landing, no baggage showed up. We finally found it at the unclaimed baggage."
Cons: "In front of the exit row so weren't able to recline seats"
Pros: "The cabin and crew were very nice up in 1st class. The food and drinks were served on time and in a timely manner"
Cons: "Plane was delayed numerous times before it was allowed to take off. I ended up being late by 2 hours."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Even though the flight left 3 hrs late it was very nice...I still think you should offer free Wi-Fi. ..and it wss nice that the food and beverages were free because we where late..Thank you"
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No power outlets"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and I was given no notification. I was only told once I got to the airport. Luckily the staff member I spoke with at checkin was helpful and put me on another airline, but only after she tried to tell me they'd sent an email and said there were no flights til the following day. I had to explain that I hadnt been notified, had taken off work, had just taken a cab there, was 2 hrs early, and due to the nature of my trip not able to leave the following day. Though she was very helpful I feel it was luck and the nature of using a small airport, not something I can expect. Either way I shouldn't have to explain and insist when it was clearly the airline's mistake. When I later checked my email I actually had never recieved a cancellation email, just an email saying cancellation was possible. Overall another bad experience with United. Flew American Airlines and was happy with the flight."
Cons: "I have handicape son and they didnt give seat together"
Pros: "Reasonable amount of leg room. Much better that the flight out, during which all passengers were squashed in like sardines (and I'm a short, small-boned person). United should stick with this model plane and sell the other one for scrap."
Cons: "Complete and total lack of food on a 5+ hour flight."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight. I'm glad it was a direct flight. I don't expect too much nowadays flying since I know the airlines charge extra for amenities such as wifi, food, luggage."
Cons: "No food provided at all. Sound was painfully loud over speakers during safety video. No way to turn off TVs permanently - kept coming back on with advertisements. Did not have enough room for all carry-on bags on board. Was delayed and no notification given to passengers."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "This was the first time my 19 month old had flown and it was a pleasant experience over all. I asked if the had a spot with an open seat next to it and they moved me so that he has more to wiggle."
Pros: "It's always great when the plane is not full and you have some extra room."
Cons: "I do wish that the plane companies would start to serve some type of food during a three hour flight."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for an hour before take off and then sat again when we landed. A one hour flight ended up taking almost 3 hours total on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was unbelievably friendly, assistant to those who really for medical attention and very attentive with the details."
Cons: "Hated the small space! Not enough leg room at all to move around! The tray will not pull out! Overall the space was a problem"
Pros: "Once we FINALLY got up in the air, the flight was good. The takeoff was good, the landing was good...other than that..."
Cons: "The terrible delays of the flights! Not able to really have any room to move...flights are too crowded anymore and it's just not fun or comfortable to fly anymore."
Pros: "Did the job Arrived and departed on time"
Cons: "Not suitable for longer flights (5+ hrs)"
Cons: "Horrible delays and lack of communication to passengers about the reason for the delay. Upon arrival, further 20-25 minute delay. No compensation of any kind for the frustrations."
Pros: "new planes, competent employees"
Cons: "seats too close, don't lean back-- can't sleep."
Pros: "Comfortable red eye flight. Was able to sleep most of ge flight."
Cons: "I was not notified of the flight being delayed until I checked in."
Pros: "Flight crew were great. Overall smooth ride."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Departed 90 minutes late!"
Cons: "Why dont the let the back of the plane board before the front so I dont have to bump everyone while I am making my way down the isle. They nickle and dime you for everything."
Cons: "None I like. Will not fly this airline."
Cons: "I was never told it would cost me $55 to have a carry on bag! Ridiculous! $60 if I wanted to check it. There is no beverage or food service. Thank God I always bring snacks on plane rides. MY FLIGHT WAS DELAYED OVER 5 HOURS then we sat on the tarmac as the pilot informed us they were having computer issues (30 more minutes). There is absolutely NO LEGROOM! I am 5'4" and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. No tv or music either. It's like the Yugo of airlines. I would NOT recommend flying this airline EVER!"
Cons: "There was a weird smell in the row I was seated in. Passengers on later flight where excessively drunk and rowdy and this impeded other people from sleeping. My previous spirit flight made me uncomfortable because everyone was drunk in the exit row (which is supposed to respond in case of emergency)."
Cons: "I was very surprised to learn that I would be charged $45 dollars for my carry on, both ways! This hidden cost would have impacted my decision when choosing a flight. In addition, I didn't purchase a seat another $25. I found it interesting that I was unable to print a boarding pass. I called customer service and was told that they can't print a boarding pass for me, but would report the issue to IT. I can't help but wonder if they were holding back my pass, hoping someone would purchase a ticket. There was no entertainment. Passengers in my area were over served, and were loud and using profane language to the point that departing passenger, several rows ahead, made a point to turn around and see who was responsible for the commotion. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "My flight got delayed 3 times and they kept changing the time at the very last minute. Plane was full of kids and babies crying, yelling and kicking my seat. It was a night mare."
Pros: "The ticket was inexpensive and it was a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything is extra (picking a seat, any bags, all food and drinks). No in flight wifi or tv available, even for a price. Despite paying $40 for a checked bag, it was sent to the wrong city. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."
Pros: "On time and I was given business class seat."
Cons: "No coffee offered for a 7 am flight. Oh well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "It is absurd to charge 55 bucks for a carry on!! Also ridiculous there is no beverage service"
Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."
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."
Pros: "Crew very gentle."
Cons: "This company sells cheap flights for one reason, its services are poor, its planes are very tight and there's nothing to help you enjoy the hours in the plane. You can't take a carry on bag, you have to pay to choose your seat, everything that you want a bit more comfort, you will have to pay."
Cons: "They charge $40 per checked bag! And carryons are even more! Oh, and you have to buy your seat...and a soda if you want one. Buy your baggage online because it's double the price at the airport. I'm 5'7" and my legs didn't fit in the seat-first time ever! Baggage drop- what a joke- we waited 45 minutes in line to drop off our prepaid bags."
Pros: "Flight was short. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "No commentary anything. 3$ water. No reclining seats. Be aware for Lon flights"
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice."
Cons: "I had never flown Spirit, did not know that there were extra charges for seats, outrageous charges for bags and carry on, even charged for water, and the seats did not recline. The website was confusing, checking the bag in took too long. Awful experience."
Pros: "Actually almost left on time, that's a plus for Spirit"
Cons: "The info boards for Spirit in the terminal are always wrong. The flights are always delayed. There is no food, and no entertainment. You should have a N/A category for those."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant."
Cons: "Unfair and deceptive trade practice: I bought my airline ticket from a third party (Kayak.com), so it wasn’t until I went on the Spirit Airline website to do the online check-in that I saw that I would have to pay to bring on a carry on bag. When I called Spirit Airlines customer service, they kept stating that I had to pay to bring on a carry on bag because I had only paid for the ticket to ride on the plane. However, the plane ticket was only about $40 less that the next lowest ticket price and it was going to cost me $90 to carry a bag on both flights. Unacceptable! Overcrowded flights: The seats are closer together on Spirit flights than I’ve seen on any other airline, and I travel often. Matter of fact, the seats are so close together that they don’t even recline…there’s NO room to recline! Since I couldn’t recline, when I fell asleep my head kept rolling forward and waking me up. This happened on the departing and returning flight. It was awful. No electronic tickets: I’ve been using electronic tickets to travel for awhile now, so I automatically created a screenshot of the ticket for the Spirit flights. It wasn’t until I made it through security check line that the agent told me I had to got to the Spirit Airline counter and get a printed ticket. Only Spirit Airlines and possibly one other airline don’t allow electronic tickets. It’s a simple thing to provide to Spirit Airline customers to make the flying process easier, but Spirit Airlines doesn’t provide them. You pay for EVERYTHING: Spirit airlines doesn’t allow customers to bring on a free carry on, they charge for all seats selected, sodas are only available for a fee, and they even charge if you go to the counter to speak with an agent. It’s preposterous! BOTTOM LINE: Spirit Airlines makes it seem as though they are saving customers money by making them pay for only the things they use, but it’s just not so. Spirit Airlines nickel and dime customers and end up making a lot of in the end. They know charging for carry on items will deter people from bringing luggage onto the plane; therefore, they actually save money because the plane is lighter and uses less fuel. They say that the ticket price is so much cheaper than other airlines, but when you figure in the cost of carry on baggage, price for seats that provide the same leg room as other airlines as part of the original ticket price, and money customers have to pay if they need agent assistance, it’s a sham. I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled. There was no food or drink provided and no other spirit airlines flights offered for more than 24 hours. We were told we could be refunded and we then chose another airline that could actually accommodate us after waiting inside the airport for 8 hours. Still have not seen the refund come through."
Pros: "Low fare."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. Spirit would not put me on another flight / airline. The only option was to take flight out on Monday, 2 days later or a refund. I would expect since it was notna cancellation Sue to weather, the airline would get me on another airline regardless of cost."
Pros: "Buying my ticket didn't actually buy me a seat, at the counter I had to pay for a seat and the cheapest was $11. It then cost me $50 to check a bag, which was the cheapest option because it would have been $55 to carry-on.... Attendant at counter was rude as well. Awful experience, 0 stars, won't fly spirit again."
Cons: "It charges for carry on 55$ and for checked baggage 53$. These weren't posted anywhere. The flight back was delayed for 3 hours and it never updated on the flight tracker. I ended up wastin a beautiful Florida beach day in the airport! Ridiculous. I hope they lose all of their business."
Pros: "Quick boarding. We left early!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and could not recline. I'm unhappy with deceptive charges. They tell you a price will be charged for a carry-on, but it turns out this price only applies if you pay for membership in a club - if you are not a member, the price is even higher. This is only made known when it is time to print your boarding passes. You are charged for choosing your seat, and it's not clear if you will be seated with the person you are traveling with if you do not pay that fee. Their charging system is kind of ridiculous, and it should be made more clear what things will cost you."
Pros: "Cheap ticket BUT...."
Cons: "Hidden charges. What started as a good deal ended up costing me more than any other airline listed price for the same dates. I will not be using this company ever again."
Cons: "I bought these tickets through Kayak, which then directed me to priceline. I had no idea during booking that this airline charges an exorbitant fee for every single courtesy. To carry on a bag is minimum $55 and maximum $100. To check a bag is $50. Please tell me, who flies internationally from Guatemala to Boston WITH NO BAGS?! Additionally, soft drinks, which should be complementary are priced at $3. Their motto is don't pay hidden fees for things you don't use, but tell me, who doesn't want a drink on a 2.5 hour flight? The seats were the skinniest, thinnest, most uncomfortable seats I have ever had the displeasure in sitting in and there were advertisements on the overhead compartments, as if I were riding on the NYC subway. Although when I purchased the seats I selected to have my husband and myself sit next to each other, during check in, they tried to charge an additional $10 to rearrange our incorrectly-ticketed seats, so we could sit together as I had originally hoped. We then had the worst layover experience I've had to date, and I've traveled extensively domestically and to 14 countries, some multiple times. We had a 40-minute layover in Myrtle Beach, where 130 people remained on the plane to continue on to Boston. However, nearly all those passengers had different tickets for the second flight and although we did not deplane, we were expected to move ourselves and our baggage to our secondarily assigned seats. For some reason, for our flight to Boston, my husband and I were separated. I would never have voluntarily chosen to be separated from my husband, and I have no idea how we had seats next to each other for our two previous flights, but then were asked to separate for our third 2-hour flight. How is it possible with modern-day computer technology that we could not just remain in our same seats, when we were remaining on the same plane? This was the worst travel experience I have ever had the displeasure of enduring and I will NEVER give my money to this airline again. This airline is a complete scam with all of its hidden costs, lack of customer service and completely inhumane treatment of its passengers. I strongly warn everyone to stay far away from Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "flight was cancelled due to weather-could not guarantee my family any seats on next available flight two days later ! we had to book on another airline. in process of trying to get a rebate,,,not a credit for a future Spirit flight...there will not be another Spirit flight !!"
Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "They charge for water By the time you pay for bags/seat assignment, it's just as much as any other flight No leg room Seats don't even recline"
Pros: "Everything was awesome"
Cons: "Never made it. You guys couldn't get me a flight and I had to travel with another airline. Hate you so much. xoxoxo"
Cons: "I don't understand how every other airline was able to fly in and out of Boston but spirit was not. I received absolutely horrible customer service. People would much rather their flight be delayed by 3-5 hours instead of being canceled. I have had a horrible expierence every flight and it simply is not worth it anymore."
Cons: "There was an incredibly long delay that was not made clear during the online check in process--I called to seek clarification, but the customer service member said she had no information on the flight status, which I did not understand given that 1) there should be internal communication; 2) as a company that provides a service, their duty should always keep the customers informed, especially since this is regarding the departure of a flight; 3) I have flown too many times to count and have flown with numerous airlines, never have I encountered this problem where a delay without a projected time of departure and where no explanation was provided regarding the reason for the delay. And to further compound the issue, the crew was extremely rude, disrespectful, and unabashedly unapologetic. Overall, the experience left a really bad taste in my mouth for my first time flying with Spirit."
Pros: "Flight time was short"
Cons: "No complementary nothing no free bag to carry made ticket price deceiving."
Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Cons: "BAD attitude by the crew. I was actually woken and shook to 'remind me' that I can purchase food. Seats DOES NOT RECLINE. Table was dirtier then a toilet bowl. Seat sizes were horrible - I had a cramp all the way back and I'm tiny. You'll have to pay me to fly them next time."
Cons: "no leg room at all, we got killed with the luggage fees, we thought we were getting a good deal with the airfare until they hit us with over a 150 for luggage, will never use them again"
Pros: "Cheap airfare, however they get you on baggage."
Pros: "Can't beat the price, even though cost of carry on and checked baggage is expensive. Would use again for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "would not use Spirit for a cross country trip because the seating would cripple me by the time I arrived."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The seats are so squished in and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Everything costs money with them. Baggage:carry on or checked, seats and food/drink. They even charge money to hit the service button. The seats were uncomfortable, the website is tough to use and there's no option to have boarding pass on your mobile device."
Pros: "I loved to personality of the crew members. They really made you happy and comforted you."
Cons: "The flight was late. They seats were invomfortale. We boarded the plane 45 min after our original departure time and the plane was already docked."
