Cons: "We were delayed which happens sometimes. I departed gate 26 at JFk the problem with the delay was there was no place to sit during the 90 min delay"
Pros: "Our crew was great"
Cons: "The delay sucked all the kiosks didn’t work 45 minute wait at the help desk bad"

Cons: "Evetying was excelent"
Pros: "Crew was so helpful... even loaned me a phone charger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after we boarded- originally scheduled to be in time. We sat on Tarmac 1.5hrs before we were able to take off"
Cons: "Pillow and blanket were extra"
Pros: "I made a flight, canceled it that day and booked on a different airline. But, I never got a cancellation email. So all I saw was the JetBlue flight. Last night, I got an email from Kayak telling me to check in so my daughter went to the wrong airport to the wrong flight!!"
Cons: "Why was Kayak not notified that I don't have this flight anymore? I booked 2 months ago...didn't remember the details. Do you know how confusing it is to get a check-in email, after no cancellation email? So when I search my email all that comes up is the flight that was canceled! Bad communication"
Pros: "entertainment, boarding-excellent Seat were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Crew needs to learn better customer service"
Pros: "The flight was relatively quick and smooth."
Cons: "When I boarded the flight the overhead bins were already full so I had to check my bag at the gate. When I picked it up at baggage claim my bag was soaked and my pink bag had black dirt all over it. The terminal had poop on the floor in multiple spots along the main path where people walk, which is clearly disgusting and concerning. Although the flight was fine the combination of these things made it a very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Just liovrJetBlue! The personnel is always attentive and engaging, quick with a smile and ready to lend a hand when needed. I believe other airlines should try to find out their hiring process and copy their system to get such quality people that understand service."
Cons: "JetBlue is how flying is meant to be!"
Cons: "Departure was delayed, then it made an unscheduled stop in Jamaica for refueling! A 3 hour flight ended up taking 7 hours. On top of that the plane did not have a way to recharge a cell phone. The entertainment choices as well as the tv screen were poor and then there was no way to turn off the screen."
Cons: "Blankets are $5"
Pros: "We were very happy with practically everything with our first impression of this airline as well as the customer service."

Cons: "I searched and searched forever to figure out how to connect to the WiFi inflight. My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working, they constantly run out of fresh food. It has happened several times in different flights. Luggage delivered late. Too long of a wait in Fort Lauderdale"
Pros: "Slightly greater than average leg room, makes a difference! Have not flown much with JetBlue in the past, but I plan to use them more in the future!"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly!"

Pros: "Great customer service and attentive staff. I would definitely ride Jetblue again."
Pros: "JetBlue in general"

First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. No food or entertainment so I couldn't rate those. N/A should be a choice"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."

Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Pros: "Dinner wasn’t anything special, but it tasted good (better than other airline food that I have had."
Cons: "Salad literally was about 3 sprigs of lettuce. When boarding onto the plane 5 passengers were booked in the same theee seats on their actual boarding passes, so that took some time to figure out while having to stand on the isle while other passengers boarded and stowed luggage"
Pros: "- friendly service - complimentary headphones - wine/beer/liquor in economy seat - decent meals served with a smile - airline that doesn't nickel and dime you - attractive male flight attendants - EXCELLENT English"
Cons: "- Panama City's staff. Wasn't sure if it's everything related to that airport, but that crew was horrible. Not friendly and highly disorganized, they left a very sour taste in my mouth after my amazing experience with COPA thus far. They felt like a completely different airline!"
Cons: "Not even there yet...Apparently plane did not meet safety standards. Inconvienced family that had to drive all the way to Orlando, take time from work, waiting for me to return and I now I'm 5 hours late. Staff was not helpful and advised we go talk to customer service at the airport. The flight was also not the smoothest and left many unhappy customers, that won't return to Copa. I understand things happen but they were very unfriendly about this situation..what's the point of spending all the $ on insurance for this situation to occur and there's no compinsation for it."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on the plane were very nice."
Cons: "I did not like that we were not informed that the flight was delayed 2 hours. We were only told bc we asked what was talking so long to board. It was very unprofessional and the copa representative told us that that was very normal to not tell us that the flight was delayed"
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room, very good food provided."

Pros: "Everything was smooth and fast"

Cons: "Could've used a little more updated tv options as in shows"
Pros: "The trip out was excellent. Food was good."
Cons: "They forgot to arrange for wheel chairs in Panama and Miami so it was an inconvenience. To make matters worse,Pne fellow wound up taking us out in bits by advancing one wheel chair and walking back for me and so on. He droptus off in a secure area an when it was time to board, staff demanded that we walk back to the Security point. The woman was adamant and supposedly a supervisor finally agreed that we could wait for a wheelchair. In Miami they had only requested one wheelchair. The food on the Panama to Miami flight left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "The options for meals. The availability of drinks."
Cons: "The heater was on for a long period of time. Many people can't handle/breathe in heat. Being on a plane with so much heat circulating without being able to turn on the air may cause panic attacks. One can always bundle up to get warm, if it's too cold."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Good meal on the flight. Hot and flavorful! Smooth flight. Arrived early, too."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late checking in for my flight from LAX to Cali. Another airlines was 7 hours late delivering me to LAX. My situation dictated that I arrive in to Cali at a specific time. I couldn't wait for 24 hours for the next flight. So I booked a new flight to get me to Cali on time. Here's the problem.. when I went to check for the Cali to LAX flight the gate agent informed me that because I failed to check in for the flight to Cali. That that cancels the entire ticket. I was forced to purchase an entire new ticket to fly back to LAX"
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Individual TVs, perhaps"
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "Well I arrived at the gate 8 minutes before departure due to a late flight from San Antonio. And no one was there. I watched the plane leave 5 minutes late. The gate attendants were super rude and lazy when they came back up the ramp. I think the walk really took it out of them. There were 10 people who had run from delayed flights just standing there thinking wtf."
Cons: "AA in Phoenix is always a nightmare. They seem to hire lazy people with no idea of customer service"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. Flight delayed for several hours. Customer service personnel not helpful in changing flights"
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable - period. I do not have any type of back problem but I was sore after that flight."
Pros: "Made it to my destination"

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"

Pros: "Usually I take a non stop flight with LATAN from LAX to LIM. It is always great."
Cons: "This time, however, from the get go I had problems. The attendant at ticketing sent one of my bags in without removing the part of the ticket I needed. Second, the attendant at the gate took my carry-on down because she thought it was too big. I have this bag for years and I travel with it everywhere with me. Then, I could not find my carry-on in Lima and hell started. I asked one guy that had an orange apron and was helping with the bags. I told him that I did not see my carry on. He sent me to American lost baggage upstairs. I had to wait 40 minutes for the office to open. Then the woman working there was very unprofessional and rude and told me that I should have made a claim at the counter in the baggage claim area. Well, there are no signs that indicate that there is a counter where to claim your lost bags, you have to just be clarivident and know according to LATAN personnel. They found my bag and call us around 3:45PM, when they close at 5PM. Well getting to the airport before 5pm was a Mission Impossible action movie. Try getting to the airport in Lima during rush hour...finally, I got there on time to get my bag, had another encounter with another personnel that, again, attempted to blame it on me instead of doing her job efficiently and with a smile on her face...What is wrong with airlines personnel???"
Pros: "Smooth flight, pilots were friendly. It was a nice flight"
Pros: "Cheap fare"

Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "The boarding at GYE was very smooth and the GYE terminal is very comfortable."
Cons: "The check-in process at GYE needs to improve. Not many people in line and it still takes an hour get checked in. Plane crew waiting much longer to serve the food. That made sure I would get less rest on and overnight flight. Worst of all, after the crew served the food, the never came to pick it up. Just makes it uncomfortable to have a tray of trash on your tray table for 3 hours."
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."

At arrival again 1 hour wait on tarnac to get gate , then at gate no gate agent so wait again. Many people frustrated as we all miss rebooked flights. Paid ourselves for hotel to get early flight next day. I had speeches at US convention but needed to cancel them. Home trip was overal very terrible.Kind regards Kenneth Hayer Sr. Director swisslog Inc."
Cons: "Poor information about departure, inefficient fats coordination at arrival in Miami"
Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"
Cons: "Typical American Airlines delays...."
Cons: "The attendant was joking around too much. He got upset when u joked back and forced me to move from the exit row. Unprofessional... flight attendants shouldn't joke about safety in the first place!"
Cons: "Not a "discount" airline bc after paying for bags and everything else, $ is comparable to other airlines who actually take care of their customers. International flight w seats that are plastic and don't recline, no water, no tray table, no room. Delayed flight so missed connections and had to wait 5 hrs for the next flight. Unsympathetic staff. Terrible! Will never fly sprit again."
Cons: "The flight is as cancelled one hour before we were suppppsed to leave and rescheduled for the following night 24 hours kater"
Pros: "Delayed flight! I have a 2hr 45 min drive home from New Orleans! Just absurb!"
Pros: "The fair is reasonable"
Cons: "we were few minutes late to check in. Charged $92 to rebook the ticket asked to go back home and return the next day instead of putting us on the next available flight. Our return ticket was cancelled and they asked us to buy another return ticket, that since we missed the other flight, the return portion was also cancelled. It is my first time, and it was a horrible experience."
Cons: "Llegamos al aeropuerto con mi familia con una hora de antelación. Al llegar a la zona del check-in encontramos una cola muy larga y desordenada. Dado que fue la primera vez en ese aeropuerto y con Spirit no llegamos al mostrador del check-in con 45 minutos de antelación y perdimos el vuelo. No había nadie que nos ayudó ni que hable español. Finalmente perdimos y vuelo y viajamos por Jetblue. El costo del pasaje supero los 400 dólares que no lo teníamos presupuestado. En pocas palabras, una experiencia no agradable."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The seats don't decline and are not very padded"
Pros: "Delay in the midnight? You must be kidding me"

Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight (Flying from Peru, to Florida, to Chicago). Upon arriving in Florida- Spirit staff was rude, would not answer questions, provide info, or help us get on new flights- we were only put standby and as more and more flights were cancelled without reason- I was told I would be stuck in Florida for 36 hours. I had to buy a ticket on another airline to get home after waiting 14 hours for Spirit to help. I was so upset, missed work, tired, and overall let down with their lack of compassion or even kind concern for the issues."
Pros: "Efficient staff"
Cons: "High additional charges for everything that would be included with airfare on other airlines."
Pros: "I made it home."

Cons: "Being delayed for 3 hrs!!! And all of the above!!! I will never use this,airline again!"
Cons: "Worst experience every ... Spirit is a shitty airline. Beware of their hidden fees and really bad restrictions on flight changes / rebooking and cancellation. I hope the airline goes down without any passengers."

Pros: "Once on the flight, it was fune"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours"
Pros: "Boarded fast. Took off early. Landed early. It was extremely efficient. Loved it!"
Pros: "Spirit airlines in not a cheaper way to fly if you have a carry-on. There misleading information online lead to me having to spend and extra $114 for my bag."
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the entire process. Mostly the lack of communication and consideration from the agents. I saw where elderly people were trying to walk up the ramp alone with zero assistance instead of a WC or help. The fact the agents were annoyed with the passengers bc of spirits lack of communication to inform to us passengers why we didn't have a plane or a crew was very frustrating. With that being said the crew was amazing even after coming off an international flight and getting stuck in customs."
Cons: "Everything costs."
Pros: "The overall flying experience with Spirit was awesome from departure to my arrival back home!"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "More than an hour DELAYED!!! Then we had to pay $65 more to carry on a small bag. That's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash and I boarded quickly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats were so close together. It was so uncomfortable not being able to move my knees forward or bend over to reach my back and I'm only 5'7". Basically it comes down to being crammed in someplace for however long and being in pain afterward. The baggage fees are terrible too. I realize that it's bare bones and everyone pays but it was just too much."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "There was garbage in the seat back in front of me when I got on the plane. Too many promotions onboard."
Pros: "First time flyer. The overall service was the exceptional - boarding and in-flight experience."
Cons: "The leg room is short in the economy class for tall people."
Cons: "No leg room Nickel and Dime airlines"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Carry on bags cost extra, and there is no indication of these charges until you hit the gate. Poor advertising and service. will pay $100 more to fly another airline."
Pros: "All of the staff was very stylish. I liked that the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Could not check my bags anywhere except the gate, and it cost more than the flight did, they would not accept cash from me to check my bags until a man had a hissy fit. I wasn't allowed to actually check my heavy bag, was made to carry it on, which was over whelming and hurt my back, really annoying and stressful. Felt ignored because I was a woman. Felt annoyed that they gave me a hard time about paying them cash. No where on the website does it say credit cards only. Also the seats were small and did not recline. On my return trip they changed the gate 2 mins before boarding and I had to run to catch the flight. I would not recommend."
Pros: "Great flight attendants very comical and caring."
Pros: "This was a better-run and smoother operation than the flight from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "$55 for my bag to come with me."
Cons: "Had to cancel it."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight and everything was on time. My seat was not uncomfortable."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks should be free to your customers. Also, Over-charging for baggage is a disgrace the way you have it set up."

Pros: "Clean, on time, good staff"
Cons: "Baggage fees too high"
Pros: "Simple, no frills, cheerful staff"
Cons: "Expensive charges for luggage which were no available when booking on line"
Pros: "What, I am bacteria in time to take my kids to school...17 hours late"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather on Clear blue skies at both ends of the trip and every other airline making their flights with no cancellations. WHY LIE! They stranded 150 people in the Houston airport with no flights out for 2 days. Most everyone was headed to a two day festival now stranded. They offered no rebooking or just delay the flight. Everyone was screaming mad. Cost me hundreds of dollars and missed the festival I flew 3000 miles to attend"
Pros: "I will say that getting a non stop flight was good and the ride was smooth but the overall customer service was poor!"
Cons: "Spirit has too many hidden fees luggage fees are ridiculous, no help printing boarding pass, website is ridiculous and will not work prior to checking in for flight and if you tell them that you had problems with checking in on website they will tell you to take a screen shot of the error on the screen and bring it in for future reference, but no fee was waived for there website not functioning And I still had to pay full price for luggage. Ot the website price and even though they tell you you get to bring one piece of luggage free of no charge on the plane it's not true your bag have to be a certain size and if it's over there is an additional fee up to 100$ ... That's why it's cheap to fly spirit they don't include all extra fees . Spirit will be my last resort for flying."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was on-time"
Cons: "Arrived at airport over 2 hours early. Did pre-check in for flight and luggage. Had to wait in line almost an hour to tag luggage. (Many people were frantic in line re: not getting to flight on time) TSA line was all the way down airport. Knew I would not make flight. NO agent to help me while I waited. Tried calling Spirit no-one could help. Got to counter with less than 15 minutes to boarding time. Supervisor was extremely rude and said there was nothing she could do re: TSA line. Said that if I didn't make flight I could get a later flight or pay extra for something different. Went to TSA line and no-one could help. Saw another Spirit rep, while in TSA line. she rudely said "no-way!" and walked away.. Finally, I "seriously" begged and cut in TSA line. Ran. Made it to gate for final boarding call!!!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew and how helpful the crew was."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to buy soda. There wasn't any entertainment."
Cons: "What a sad excuse for an airline"
Pros: "The flight was ok and the pilot gave información At all times"
Cons: "I expierenced a horrible situación At the AirPort. First, there was nobody To help with inquires At the airport, on the line. Second, I meassured my bah which fit perfectly in the 'included' box. It said absolutly nothing about the hight, then the flight was delay for more than an hour, nobody was there for inquires, so i was late for a meeting, and when i was about To get on board, i was stopped To Pau more for my lugagge, and they wanted To charge me more. Not only that. One of the atte Santa At the counter acepted cash from another custom er even if was no permitted, and then me and my husband got threatened by Patricia At the counter that if we Kept complaining she would close the door forcing us to lose the plain. Finally we paid but we recorded the situation in our phone. We were severly mistreated and we will Not buy tickets from this company and will encourage our friends Not to buy tickets either. I have never Bern treated so bad in a airlines company"
Cons: "4 hour delay... Not cool"
Cons: "Was not aware of the fact that I would have to pay $55 to carry a bag on. I checked my bag for $50 (because it was cheaper) but had to retrieve it after the first leg, pay ANOTHER $50 and then go through security again. Major pain in the but that was not presented when booking."
