An old and tired airline

Pros: "Jet blue flights seem generally good. Like the WiFi access to be Able to use flight time efficiently."
Pros: "plane was newer, clean. left gate fairly soon after boarding"
Cons: "it was delayed"
Pros: "Faster fly"
Pros: "good snacks and this route (DCA-BOS) has the 2x2 seat configuration so no middle seats."
Cons: "I took this flight last week and this week and both weeks the flight were delayed a minimum of 1.5 hours"
Cons: "JetBlue's livery is really beginning to show its age. The entertainment screens flicker and flash and the once-luxurious leather seats appear worn. The crew is still great, as usual, and our flight in general was excellent."
Pros: "Legroom!!! JetBlue sets itself apart from the rest by letting you breath in your seat!"
Cons: "Entertainment / access to entertainment on the app was mediocre"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and seats seem to be bigger than other airlines"
Cons: "My tv was broken, and that has been one of the amenities on jetBlue that is normally marketed somewhat heavily so it was a bummer. The flight was also delayed for weather reasons (I know that is not their fault, but it added to the general bummer of a flight)."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Agent at gate was hard to understand when making announcements - not due to accent or anything like that - he just spoke too quickly and directly into mic. He kept saying something about our flight moving to a different gate but it didn’t- very confusing"
Pros: "The boarding time was delayed two hours and then changed back to the original time half an hour before boarding."
Cons: "The boarding time was delayed two hours and then changed back to the original time half an hour before boarding."
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours, in spite of good weather at both airports."
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the following day with no reason. Then it was delayed only several hours. Then delayed until the following day agai , before finally having the delay reduced to only 30min later than original departure time. This constant back and forth was a nightmare to deal with planning if/when to arrive for flight and consumed my entire day (night flight but first notification of delays was sent the morning of)"
Cons: "I have been a big fan of JetBlue and even have had its Mosaic status for several years. But I have started to have negative experiences related to maintenance of the planes. This flight was an example. We boarded the plane only to be told we had to get off. They had to do engine maintenance, as the engine seemed to be using or losing too much oil, according to the Captain. We finally re-boarded and arrived in Boston about 40 minutes late. Not too bad, but the pattern of maintenance issues I have experienced concerns me."
Pros: "We left early and arrived early - unheard of most of the time."
Cons: "The flight delay estimates were off and it was pushed back throughout the day. Staff members were going out of their way to ignore me when I was trying to switch flights and seemed to not be interested in helping. They kept telling me what I should have done with incomplete information rather than helping."
Pros: "Counter staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours; changed airlines to make it to Boston in time for an important family surgery"
Pros: "Captain kept us informed"

Pros: "First row seat was so comfy w lots of room!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Back seat pocket was ripped out Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "seat size."

Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Quick and efficient: boarding, service, connections = as good as it gets for the money."
Pros: "On time funny staff."
Pros: "JetBlue offers good service - had a minor issue with the website while booking that was quickly resolved by customer service, air travel was efficient and without trouble. thanks!"
Cons: "Late departure, no overhead bin space available"
Pros: "Overall efficiency of the trip was very good."
Cons: "Audio in seat was poor. Lots of static and could not hear show."

Cons: "The plane was freezing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I had to buy a ticket at the last minute on a different airline"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Free drinks beyond water would be noce"
Pros: "We went to the wring airport (BWI instead of DCA) but JetBlue was able to get us on a flight boarding in only 25 minutes at BWI. No problems at gate; we gate-checked our bags, and being in row 20, we're happy that boarding started at the back of the cabin (how sensible!)."
Cons: "My husband's seat back screen died halfway into the flight."
Pros: "I thought almost everything about the flight was great (lots of leg room, courteous staff, nice entertainment, short flight even arriving slightly early."
Cons: "The only thing that I wish was different was that they had a vegetarian food option available"

The terminal on my ticket was different than the gate number. We went through security and had to take a 15 min shuttle to a different terminal. Why not just go through security there? There were also no attendants at the gate to discuss seat assignments. My husband and I didn’t have seats together. Try on board crew was great, but the airport experience was lacking.

Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and polite, my flight attended (blond lady) was very pleasant and very professional. She should be promoter to teach others how to be professional without kiss passenger's a*s."
Cons: "Could be better if the check in line employee were be able to sell one way ticket to Boston at 13:20hr , instead I had to purchased round trip just to get at my destination at planned time. Also I had to pay 30 dollars to go get the next flight at 18:59hrs , which was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Crew friendly."
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Snacks need some variety"
Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Wifi"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally nice. Live DISH TV unexpected and appreciated."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Cons: "Flight attendant in First class was visibly frustrated and unfriendly. He was not helping with my simple request for a blanket. Also, the were no food service in first class."
Pros: "I like the entertainment on Delta."
Cons: "Not having a delayed flight."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "I’m still in Los Angeles 10 hours after landing, having missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew did a great job communicating what was happening while we were delayed"
Cons: "Compensation for our time or schedule mishaps."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
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."
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped many rows of people not offering food or beverage. I wasnt sleep so not sure why I wasnt asked did I want a beverage or snack"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and entertainment was good when available"
Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work"
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Cons: "My kids were asleep when the flight attendant passed the snacks . I asked to get the snack for them and she told me they will have to get it in the back of plane once awake. Didn’t argue but was surprised"
Pros: "The plane was very new and clean; entertainment options and food were very good; it was a good flight."
Cons: "At baggage drop-DCA: Charged me for a bag when I had a status that allows 1 bag free; she would not listen, made me pay for it in order to check my bag and then told me to go over to customer service and ask for a refund."
Pros: "Arrive early. On time departure."
Cons: "My row 34 D did not have entertainment - had to move to another seat and row."
Pros: "Everyone was great!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Cons: "They upgraded only my husband and split him up with the rest of our family. We were delayed and once we landed we got stuck in an active taxi way just because of poor arrangements from airport staff"
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Delta delayed us SEVEN times and I type this as we are rounding our 30th minute waiting to get off the plane at Logan."
Cons: "I was flying from CDG to LGD and my bag was lost, yet the baggage claim system showed it arrived...... Thankful I packed some essentials in my carry on. The bigger issue will be dealing with my medical insurance company to get medications replaced that were in the checked bag."
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Cons: "Lateness"
Pros: "The service was excellent from boarding to inflight operations everyone seemed happy and made a honest attempt to be helpful and create an enjoyable experience for me and my Travel Partner."
Cons: "Plane was late coming in and my departure time was 30 minutes off schedule."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "About 10-15 yrs ago I stopped transatlantic flights on Delta. It was a scruffy airline with uninterested cabin crew & not to talk of food etc. What a change! Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "When plane landed early and waiting on another plane to move so we could get off plane over yhirty minutes waiting"
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me the can of Diet Coke and extra pretzels when requested. The entertainment was excellent, the TV screen in the seats. Good choice of TV shows"
Cons: "Seat size"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick service - uneventful."
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Cons: "Never announced we were over 10Kfeet and could turn on electronic equipment, attendant seemed cross when her question "pretzels or coockie?" was answered "yes.""

Great flight

Quick and easy. Chairs are hard but short flight, so no problem. Crew smiled and were nice.

It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok

Our flight was delayed by 7 hours

Those corn kernel snacks were too hard for my dentures

Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy.

This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it.

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"
Pros: "Uneventful flight. Departed on time. Arrived ahead of schedule (good thing). Excellent crew from nose to tail."
Cons: "PA system at gate was awful. Instructions were inaudible."
Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "I like that all the chairs have working electric charger. Other airlines probably have this but it is important for me and they have this."
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."
Cons: "This flight was completely messed up and ultimately ruined my connection and subsequent travel plans. We were told there was a 30 minute delay because of the pilot and shortly after we were told to deplane. I had to cancel. rebook with another airline while my bag traveled to Boston"
Pros: "The flight was crowded, but what can you expect? Turbulence prevented beverage service. The flight arrived early but had to wait to land."
Pros: "Did not experience food or entertainment"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
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: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Efforts to get us to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Cons: "Six “10 min delays” that led to a 1 hr plus delay"
Cons: "Check in for AA at DCA was terrible. Everything else was great."
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: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "It's fine, you know what to expect."
Cons: "No entertainment; no TVs, no music."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Cons: "Allowed me to take earlier flight"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 15 minutes. We had well over an hour to go have dinner, so we did. While we were gone, they moved our flight to another gate and left no sign behind-just an empty gate. Nobody, including AA staff at another counter would tell us whether we missed our flight. A passenger getting on another flight overheard us and told us what happened. When we found the right gate, I told the attendant that they should have left a notice on the digital board at the previous gate. He became very effeminate and gave me a piece of his mind, since he had "personally" made the announcement. It didn't matter to him that we weren't there to hear it. That was our problem. The flight was delayed even longer after we boarded because of a fuel gauge issue, and when a few passengers moved about to use the restroom or get belongings out of their luggage, the female attendant on board scolded everyone like school children. We finally got home, an hour and a half late."
Cons: "The flight attendant chastised my husband loudly when doing a pre check before take off. She reached over and yanked his charger our of the socket and stood over him and reprimanded him for not being on airplane mode. The passengers in front were turning around while the passengers behind were laughing. It was excessive and inappropriate. The passengers behind him had tray tables down and video games out and when she addressed them it was in a respectful manner, but when addressing my husband, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Seemed to be discrimination as she did not treat any other passengers like this. I wish I would have captured this on video to share with American Airlines as I do not think they would condone her behavior. Her name was Marlene and she needs additional training regarding customer service."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my flight as suggested (especially during busy summer travel), boarded the plane, and waited on the plane for about 55 minutes for 4 people who were late to make the flight. This was announced to us as we sat down. I've only ever been late once on a flight (as a teenager) and the plane was still at the terminal but the gate was closed.... I was told there was no way they were opening the doors for me. Since then, I make it a point to be early and if necessary, have plenty of time between connections because of delays. I was shocked waiting almost the same time as the length of the flight for a few people who were late. They could have been placed on a later flight (I saw there were plenty of flights). Also, why trouble the majority of travelers for a small minority? I haven't flown American in a while because of other past experiences and spent a lot of time looking at delay history for this particular flight before giving AA another try. I am once again reminded of why I avoid traveling AA and why other people speak poorly of it. PS In the future, give travelers timely, honest updates so that people aren't siting in their seats staring at the door for an hour waiting for someone to walk in so we can take off. I don't know who these people were, how they were connected, and what kind of money they paid you guys but it was all around unprofessional. I know I wasn't the only unhappy traveler. Please get your act together American, you used to be great."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
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.)"

The flight actually was fine. Just a lot of delays.

United jerked us around. We had Business Class seats but were refused entry to the United Lounge because we were leaving for Boston from the International terminal where our flight landed. Really!?

Pros: "very professional and helpful crew, very clean cabin, on time, smooth flight"
Cons: "it was perfect"
Pros: "It was a fuller flight, but the airline staff did a great job either making sure there was compartment space or checking people's bags for free. Even with the fuller flight, the boarding process went by really quickly."
Cons: "Would have preferred to switch the pretzels out for maybe some salty crackers or chips"
Cons: "The Boeing 737-800 did NOT have enough leg room for me. My first flight to Houston was very uncomfortable, even with an aisle seat. If I can, I will avoid this plane when booking future flights."
Cons: "As my mom explained to me, there was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. The flight attendants were proud to do what they did, and treated people with kindness and civility. That is all gone now. It is an ice cold experience. I feel like cattle."
Pros: "Upgraded to First Class so it was great."
Cons: "No entertainment unless you download their app and use your personal device. Other airlines do this better."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats were far from comfortable."
Cons: "The seats were so close together and did not recline to a comfortable position at all and to be a flight over 2 hours is just plain ridiculous! I will definitely be putting United on my list with Spirit from now on. Choosing either of them for such discomfort versus price savings is not worth it!"
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Cons: "After we board the plane, we were forced to sit on the tarmac at LAX for 2 hours. I missed the Ferry to Provincetown and it cost me an extra night of hotel in Boston. The food choices were very limited, and the seats are just not comfortable at all!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "Large aircraft half to 3/4 full, so boarding and leaving were smooth."
Cons: "Flight attendant passed me by when he was collecting food orders. I never had the chance to get food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Boarding group approach caused confusion due to lack of line indicators (too short); in-flight WiFi kept dropping every 60 seconds, making movie watching impossible"
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Pros: "I didnt know I could only bring one item on board that had to be checked UNDERNEATH the seat in front of me. I didnt have the "right" ticket for over head storage. I had to buy a box for $15 to put my purse in and THEN pay $35 to check my PURSE in! I couldnt check in early. I had to go to the gate to get a seat assignment and then even though my assigned seat was in the 10th row, I then had to line up in groups like Southwest and I guess my punishment for sitting in economy was to wait to board last. I felt like third class boarder on the Titanic. United has become less than a Greyhound bus. They will NEVER be my first choice again! It was HORRIFIC I will go to ANY other airlines before them. P.S. the service at the Houston counter were rude and awful except for Ms. Edwards"
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."
Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "I was not informed about the delay until after I checked my bag, otherwise I might have chosen another flight. I was informed that though I could possibly change flights, my bag might not. I have the UA app, and did not receive timely notification. Free WIFI would have been nice as a compensation. A 4 hour delay means I miss my bus and extends my travel time significantly, one more night away from home. You did offer $50 of mt next UA flight for the next year, but I don't fly that often. Considering the reason for the delay was they were waiting for a plane was frustrating."
Pros: "Very meticulous pilots, very friendly and accommodating cabin crew"
Cons: "When we made reservations in February we opted for economy plus seating 8C and 8D on an Airbus A320. In June we received notice of a schedule and equipment change to a Boeing 737-300. I was not told or given the option to change seat assignments, and we were assigned middle and window seats 28E and 28F, which were torture, so narrow and almost no legroom. Why weren't we automatically assigned economy plus seats? Adding insult to injury I had to apply for a refund for the seat upgrade, which again should have been automatic. Seeing as how the return flight was code-shared with AirCanada, United did not give us the option to upgrade seating, so I was forced to call United, waited almost 40 minutes so that they could give me the AirCanada booking reference number which then enabled me to upgrade seats via AirCanada's website. Lucky thing too because there weren't many economy plus seats left. I consider myself to be a savvy traveler, but there were too many unknowns and hoops to jump through in order to get proper seating. Plus the extra fees for premier access and baggage are exorbitant. Finally, I bought an egg white flatbread snack which was awful. I don't see how United gets away with this treatment, it certainly doesn't make for an enjoyable experience when vacationing. In fact we are seriously considering not taking any more vacations requiring flying. We're happy that airlines are profitable, but not at the expense of comfort or navigating options that require very sophisticated knowledge."
Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The customer service was mediocre. The selection of complementary beverage was minimal compared to other airlines. The staff are disgruntled and sometimes rude. There was always some sort of mechanical problems with the plane going to Puerto Plata and coming back. On the way to DR we had to divert to Miami because of problems with Navigation. They made us wait seven hours and gave us a voucher for food at the last minute. People had already bought food. I would not recommend United to none of my associates."
Pros: "goos seat"
Cons: "There was no food what so ever while business got full dinner and the entertainment was very poor"
Cons: "Wouldn't let me bring my bag even though there was plenty of space."
Pros: "Average stuff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5.5 hrs (due to their own fault) and they did not even have anyone come and tell us nor have any food or drinks for us in the meanwhile. They did not even have options for anyone to board another flight if needed. They did give 50 e-dollars to use for another trip at the end but I do t think that's enough compensation for their poor service. I probably would avoid them on another trip."
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about the flight"
Cons: "Layover in New Jersey was horrible. My flight was delayed 4x, and arrived at my destination 4 hours behind schedule. When I asked customer service for more information regarding my flight, the staff was rude, did not offer a resolution or give an explanation for the delay. A little customer service could have went a long way to make the situation better. I am overall not pleased with the customer service I received and was disappointed with the delay. I don't think I will ever fly united again due to the customer service."
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed. Gate agents were rude and not helpful. Acted like I was crazy for being worried I would miss connection. After flight was changed 5 times try finally changed my flight and I had to wait 5 hours at airport."
Pros: "Flight took off before scheduled departure time.l"
Cons: "Passengers were rude as they walked down the isle Several times I was hit by a person walking by me without any apologies."
Pros: "It was on time and a little early"
Cons: "I had to pay to watch any movies which I didn't and service was aloof."
Pros: "On time in spite of a late start Gate attendants were nice and helpful Comfortable as is possible in economy without spending a lot more money. Food (pretzels and drinks) as good as possible without spending more money. (I remember the good old days when you got much more in seating and food for your money)"
Cons: "This flight I had a window seat and I felt like I couldn't get up to stretch my legs or use the bathroom. (I am 70 and 4 hours is too long to sit) I usually get an isle seat but ALWAYS have to give up my bag at the gate - my bag which you tell me I can bring ON the plane with me. I do not like having to waste time claiming my bag that you told me I could have with me on the plane. I can pay $25 for that privilege!! The flight attendants always seem like they have their defenses up. One even held up the people trying to board so she could serve a drink to someone in first class. REALLY?? They couldn't wait till the plane was loaded?? I gave this flight a 'good' rating because it was mostly as good as it is going to get with economy passengers needs stripped to the bare minimum."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too tight. $8 sends a little high for the amount of commercials one has to suffer though on the tv"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed after boarding by 30 + minutes. Snack was not only meager but tasted stale. As my flight from LA was a bit late I didn't really have time to get something to take on the plane. The on board choices were expensive and not at all appealing. Beverage service was only twice. The plane was dirty I had trash in the seat pocket in front of me. The bathroom I used was awful. Trash on the floor toilet was dirty and it smelt bad. It was comparable to a train I took crossing Siberia in the 90,s. My flight to LA was delayed by 51/2 hours. I was given a voucher but after this experience not sure I will ever use it"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers -No leg room -Package on food said snack mix but it only contained pretzels"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent drink options"
Cons: "Boarded late. There were no seats at the gate so everyone had to just stand around waiting to board. No announcement or apology. Took 25 minutes after we landed for the first bag to come down the chute at baggage claim. My first class dining options were chips, pretzels, or a banana. Short flight but still."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, flight was half empty, and we arrived 30 minutes early. Couldn't have been better"
Cons: "Delayed then changed gates with five minutes until boarding with the new gate a half a mile away. Then once onboard we were delayed again."
Pros: "Was shocked they still offered drinks on such a short and small flight."
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Pros: "At least there was room to sprawl out and rest."
Cons: "We boarded our plane and during preflight check on the runway the captain learned there was mechanical error (in the right engine fuel something). The issue could not be solved and we had to change planes. On the second plane, the captain shared with travelers that "and two loose wires were found, so it's good we caught that and changed planes". What the heck? Shouldn't basic functions be checked before a plane is boarded? What was supposed to be a 1030 red eye, turned out to be a 1 AM bloodshot eye."
Pros: "Captain had apologized many times about the delay. I appreciated that. . Crew attitude towards customers were way better than my first leg.( Beijing to Chicago). I wonder why. Boarding took long time. Many people had no overhead bin for their carry on. I don't have one so I Just watched them. They serviced water and a tiny snack. One man asked if they have something to eat. He was given a bigger bag of snack, free, usually he had to pay. I guess its due to the delay. Waited a little longer for luggages. But I was happy I arrived Boston safe before midnight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight."
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "Planes get delayed for all kinds of reasons both in and out f control of the airline. but something the airline does have control over is how it handles the sitsituatioby letting the passengers know their patience is appreciated. We sat on the runway for 2 and a half hours in summer afternoon in Washington DC because of weather in New York. Only once were we offered a small cup of tepid water. Then someone remembered the pets stuck in the cargo hold, and we went back to the gate. After deplaning, we stood at the gate for thirty minutes and weren't given vouchers for refreshments on the concourse nor bottles or at least bottles of water. Finally we were called for boarding, and then 10 minutes after that, the first passenger actually got on. After a second boarding we made it out to the runway... where we sat for another 40 minutes. Keep in mind, this particular plane has no seat outlets nor in seat entertainment systems, so most people had either dead or dying phones at this point, rendering the "complimentary in flight entertainment" available through the United app useless. Once we were finally in air, we weren't comped drinks or Internet or any other amenity offered by United. I've been stuck in situations like this on other airlines, but they worked to provide the barest glimmer of hospitality. Fly the friendly skies? Nah, we'll overcharge you for everything because our business model is unsustainable but our majority shareholders couldn't care less. A Star Alliance Member™."

Pros: "Male server was good."
Cons: "Flight time was initially pushed back (booked for 11am, schedule change to 230) and then was over 90 minutes late departing. Very little information on the delay: why, when taking off and no apology."
Cons: "Arrived well before the recommended 1 hour in advance for the domestic flight. Lines to move through their security wrapped around the terminal on multiple floors. Called customer service for assistance and they reported there was nothing they could do. Reminded them that it is their responsibility to manage these types of issues such as telling passenger to arrive 2 hours ahead if they have been aware of this chronic issue. They told me they had no way of contacting the airline staff at the airport to assist us Completely unprofessional, poor customer care and inefficient. Will not be flying with United out of Newark NJ again. If it weren't for the friendly passenger in line who let us move ahead we would have missed the flight. Just made it before the gate to the aircraft closed."

Horrible airline

This is the worst airline ever! Do not fly this airline if you want to actually get to your destination on time. Multiple delays, cancellations, and long lines. Very poor customer service.

Pros: "The crew was nice. Y"
Cons: "Everything else. I couldn't check in online. When I got to the airport, I was told I didn't have a flight. I showed the lady my confirmation email and she kept telling me that I only had one flight (this was my return flight home from Florida), I had to show her the difference between the two flights. Then she tried to tell me that I had cancelled my flight online..... which I hadn't, hence me being there trying to check in. Horrible company. They push their flight attendants to have customers sign up for the Spirit credit card. Just horrible horrible company."
Cons: "I had 3 bags which could easily fit into the cabin space. One of the bags I had carried was the same bag which I had while boarding the flight from Boston to Chicago on 8th Jun 17. While in that trip I was not charged for the bag as the size & weight fitted into your norms. But I had to pay $195 for 3 bags,including the bag which I had while leaving Boston. The behavior of the staff manning the boarding gate was nasty. As I was not having a credit card with me, I chose to pay cash. But they refused to accept cash & told me that my flight will be cancelled and I won't be allowed to board the aircraft. I panicked & requested the passengers to take money from me and swipe their card. With great difficulty I found a passenger who obliged me. A fresh boarding pass was issued to all 4 of us. The bag which I had while taking the flight to Chicago on 8/6/17 fitted on the equipment which measures the sizes, but I was made to pay for it. Very horrible experience of flying a so called low fare airline."
Pros: "The ride was smooth and shorter than expected"
Cons: "all the hidden fees... The luggage was $52 for a carry on which is totally ridiculous. On the flight no snacks or beverages were complimented and the one soda that was had to split between the 3 passengers in the row the staff on the flight were also extremely rude and not pleasant at all. Messages over the loud speaker where not clear and very unprofessional almost as if were were on a ride at a carnival. A family of 3 were seated separated and the flight and were lucky enough to have another passenger trade seats and the staff yelled at them it was very sad. Also i was charge and international charge on my credit card for making and international purchase needless to say i will never purchase another flight from spirit"
Pros: "Sitting down. Not much more was pleasant."
Cons: "Got jammed getting on the plane. With time to make it through security we were held back. Now missing our flight, we were hit with late fee and a flight for 12 hours later. Spent all day at the airport, missing afternoon engagements on the home front. Then waited in the terminal to then realize we had to pay for carry on baggage. Should have been identified when the new tickets and boarding passes were issued. No notificTion. We then had to pay before boarding, the attendant saw that we paid a late charge and continued to bill us for carry on. No discount, no empathy, not how to do business. Not a fan of surveys and have not filled one out in years but this experience was past poor. The delay and charges added up to a travel that would have gotten us to the.other coast, not the 55 minute flight home. The flight was.also delated for over an hour, pusbing us out even later due to weatber? Weather between Baltimore and Boston were clear. Bostin our destination city was clear as well. Just a terrible experience and will not be recommnding any services with thus carrier in the future."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative and my seat was comfortable. I also received numerous updates regarding my delayed flight so I felt well-informed as to the situation."
Cons: "My flight was delayed three hours. In spite of this lengthy delay, no complimentary food or drink was offered on the flight. I have experienced delayed flights prior to this and have found that the airline generally tries to make it up a little bit to the passengers by offering them some basic complimentary snacks and drinks, which I feel is a nice gesture. I was a little surprised that this was not offered with my delayed flight yesterday. The only available food and drink options were very pricey so I went without."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Not much except the quick boarding but that's because no one brings a checked bag which is a HUGE negative."
Cons: "First of all the people who work at spirit in Florida are very rude. Second it is a major scam that they advertise cheap flights. Their flights are cheap because they charge you for your carry on. $57 to carry on a small roller bag and $50 to check your bag. To me that is unbelievable. There is plenty of space and it makes no sense. They also won't even give you a free cup of water. Flying naturally dehydrates your body. I'm surprised we don't hear about more people getting sick or passing out on their flights! I just couldn't believe for a 3 hr flight I'd have to buy a water bottle. In the end just was not worth the cheaper flight price. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "The nickle and diming. $50 for a carry on? Outrageous! $40 for a checked bag? You've got to be kidding! If the flight had been cheap this might have been acceptable, but it was $300 for a one way flight to Boston. Price gouging because of school vacation week. Also, $10 to check in at the airport? Sure, you say do it on line, but I tried for hours on my iphone and the site did not work. I went to Staples to try it there and print a boarding pass and could not get the website to work. The lady at Staples said this is common...people ALWAYS have trouble with Spirit, she said. We were able to check in at the Kiosk at the airport so it turned out all right. As to the seats, I'm 5'1" and average weight and felt like a sardine. I'm glad at least that the flight was on time and the pilot managed to get us in a half hour earlier so we didn't have to stay crammed in for too long."
Pros: "All flights were on time."
Cons: "Where do I begin. This company nickel and dimes you to death. So many extra charges. Charge to check in at airport, charge you to carry on more than a purse or backpack, charge you to pick seats, checked luggage fees are ridiculous and are limited to 50 pounds. Seats wouldn't recline and you had very little leg room. Can't imagine flying in those seats for more that a couple hours. And if you are over weight! Good luck fitting in the seats! They don't even give you water. All food and drinks must be purchased. Our family will avoid this airline in the future."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Ridiculous charges for everything you get on other carriers for free: printing boarding pass, choosing a seat,water, carry on bag allowance. Additionally seats are extremely small(and I am not a big person), no inflight entertainment available at all, no option for an electronic boarding pass and additionally the flight was delayed. With what I paid for the flight itself, the charge for 1 carry-on bag and the fee for selecting a seat at the time of booking, my total cost was more than what I would have paid on Delta or American. Will not be a repeat customer of Spirit."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board that had everyone questioning what was going on. We all heard a scream, that of course freaked all of us out. Nobody was telling us what was going on or asked for a Doctor on board. We even landed without knowing what happened. Because most of the staff was tending to this issue, when it came time to throw out trash, the flight attendant was swiftly walking down the plane calling out "trash". I didn't even have enough time to hand him mine before he passed our row without looking. The flight was also extremely turbulent. And a word of the wise for future Spirit purchasers: the seats do not recline AND there is no on board entertainment."
Pros: "Good service and staff worked with a smile."
Cons: "The website is not the easiest to navigate. I don't like the look...not very professional. The ads boast of the airlines low cost but it Nichols and dimes you for every little thing. I wasn't happy that when I did the early check in the day before departure it offered me to get bumped up to Zone 2 so we would get seated first and have first access to the overhead bin. I purchased it for about $20 but on the way to West Palm they called both zones to get up to board the plane and for the return trip to Boston, Zone 1 got called first to board. This was money spent for nothing....like a donation. the bottom line is that what we spent with Spirit was not less expensive than other airlines. By the time you add all extra fees, there are no savings."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight was delayed again and again for over 18 hours even as other planes from other airlines took off around us. at one point we boarded the flight and sat 10 feet from the gate for over an hour before they returned us to thr gate and made us disembark. for another set of delays we were told that the person supposed to tow the plane had lost his access badge and another person had to drive in from home to do the work. other than this, the gate staff gave the passengers limited to no information. no amenities were provided to delayed passengers (no snacks, accommodations, etc). plus, the terminal had only one women's restroom with only two stalls, one of which was frequently out of toilet paper."
Pros: "The flight to Fort Lauderdale was outstanding in all respects, including carrying on our bags."
Cons: "The Spirit check-in for the flight back (2/27/17#616) was degrading, confused, and expensive: the worst ever in a long experience flying worldwide and our last with Spirit. After making them aware of a hip transplant, we were directed to the wrong location eliciting an rude expletive; redirected, we were told our carry-on was too big and charged $50. to check it. I had carried it on at Logan and with Delta 2/8 and 2/10) and many other airlines before. On board people all around us carried on bags similar in size to our checked bag."
Cons: "They told me I needed to spend a lot of money to sit with my 6 and 7 year old children. A LOT of money. Without spending extra, we would be assigned random seats. I didn't believe them because it breaks FAA rules, , so I checked in without our. Basing the seats and I was already seated with my kids. They obviously lied and tried for the upsell. They changed my flight 4 times and never sent a notification Website is intentionally deceptive and horribly designed. I tried to purchase bags and it checked me in (without my consent), tried to upsell me on a credit card 4 times, tried to upsell and confuse me about purchasing priority boarding, Only one working bathroom on a full flight. They deceived everyone at the gate and said a carry on was 100 dollars but failed to mention that it only applied to carry ons over a certain size. Worst company I've ever dealt with. Deceptive."
Cons: "After a slight parking delay at the airport I made it to the Spirit check-in 43 minutes before departure. Spirit representatives had already left the counter leaving me, my family, and several other passengers who arrived just after me with no ability to get boarding passes. We proceeded to the security area where we could see the Spirit reps who could have easily checked us in at that point. We spoke out to them asking for help but they simply looked down and ignored us. They told the TSA agents they would not come out till after the flight departed. Imagine how frustrating that was to hear. No other airline behaves like this. Later, my request for cancellation and refund was rejected because I missed the 45 minute window. I am out $544. I managed to get a flight with Delta that morning and was treated like royalty by comparison. The Delta flight was almost the same price to boot. Never again Spirit! Not worth saving a few pennies to be treated like that."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good. They made constant announcements as to the status of the flight and anticipated turbulence. The flight attendants were also good"
Cons: "Where to begin. You arrive at the airport to endless lines. There were three lines to check in and we learned eventually that one line was for Cuban flights. One for us and one for something else. However, the staff was rude and there was no signage indicating which was which. Then the baggage claim lady charged me $59 extra for my bag but then said that if I had had my friends check the bag I wouldn't have had to pay the fee. Of course then it was too late. Then the flight was delayed because the bad overbooked it. Finally at Boston our bags took forever to arrive and when they did the were soaking wet. I understand that Spirit is meant to be the economical carrier but that is no excuse for rude and incompetent staff. I heard SOO many people say they would never fly Spirit again. Get it together Spirit!"
Pros: "If you don't mind minimal leg room, seats that don't recline and high prices for low grade food, the crew was courteous, the plane was clean and we had a smooth flight that arrived on time! Hiccup We paid for our bags online the night before but the Kiosk said still owed the money. Very frustrating now having to now wait in the ticket line, and with holiday TSA long lines, we were the last ones to board the plane as the gate closed. That needs to be fixed. It we didn't make it you would have gotten a scathing review. $45 per carry-on is real steep though. However, all is well!"
Pros: "Totally so mad at check in on line 24 hours ahead of time - found out one piece of checked bags is $40, a carry on was another $20 and seat assignement was yet another fee. All this after buying a ticket! We had no idea there were so many other fees. The airport was was out of our way and we only booked the flight because the fare was lower. When we found at AT CHECK IN, 24 hours ahead of time about all the extr fees, we rebooked on another airline and said forget this airline, what a rip off! Never again will book this airline with all those hidden fees. It was excessive and not mentioned till check in. Bad business model!!"
Pros: "The plane was clean (looked new) and the crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "After having to pay to choose seats and paying over $400 in changes for luggage (2 people one carry on and one checked luggage each) we also had to pay for any beverage or snack on the plane. Also, apparently we didn't read carefully, though no one was able to point me in the correct direction, there is a limit to the weight on the checked luggage of 42lbs and we each were at 45lbs.... I'm aware of the 50lbs limit not 42. We had to over stuff our carry-ons after paying over $400 to even have checked luggage in the first place!! Otherwise we would have had to pay anther $100 for an additional carry-on. The seats are padded shells and, for long flights, can be uncomfortable. We ended up being over an hour late, there was no communication until the landing announcement."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had 2 tickets booked for Boston on November 17th at 5:58pm. I tried to check in online for both travelers, but according to Spirit Airlines website, you cannot check 2 tickets from the same account. When I arrived at BWI airport and went to the Spirit Airlines desk the lady told me that the flight is closed even though it was still not boarding time yet. I explained to her what happened and asked for cooperation, but she just kept repeating that flight is closed and next flight is in 2 days, which I couldn't wait for, because of the scheduled appointments that I had in Boston. In general the service was terrible and the website platform didn't work right. I had tk pay $250 dollars for last minute ticket while I already lost the money for the first two tickets."
Pros: "Flight home to Boston was great! Wonderful crew, entertaining and a smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight 857 to Dallas was awful, inside the plane cabin was a high pitched loud noise that hurt my ears for 15 minutes before takeoff and 15 minutes after landing. It was never explained by the crew and was definitely not normal. Sounded like a serious mechanical issue and no customer should be subjected to that. Also sounded like landing gear was not working properly, it kept making grinding noises. Also bratty children on the flight and stewardess did nothing to stop several customers from playing videos out loud on their phones before takeoff. Why were they not told to use ear phones? Very disrespectful to other customers. The 8 y.o. in front of me reached back in to my compartment and tried to shut my window! I had to yell "no, stop don't touch my window!" And his mother sitting right next to him did nothing. He also rang for the stewardess call button for no reason, she did not punish him for that either."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours that they did not tell us about until we got to the gate because of 'air traffic', which should have been known ahead of time. Flight attendants were obviously tired and in a bad mood. Very small room in seat. The passenger behind me had her knees digging into my back the entire trip. A woman got too drunk and had to be moved to the front of the plane right in front of me because she was too intoxicated and out of hand. She was yelling and then threw up. It was overall one of the worst flights I've had in a very long time. It wasn't all Spirit's fault, but they didn't help the situations because you're paying for the "bare minimum"."
Cons: "Horrible Horrible airlines. First airline that I will make it a point to never fly again. They obviously are nickle and dime-ing everything, but more more predatory than that. Was warned by many on how to avoid this, but still ended up with $140 in extra fees and spent 30 mins on the phone to a foreign customer service line. Spirit changed the gate 20 minutes before boarding but kept the electronic signage same, so people arriving on time waiting at the original gate and missed their flight. With some repeated experience you may be able to to learn minimize you losses but honestly it is not worth this experience again. And if you search online, you will notice that this is a common experience with Spirit."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Where do I begin? The price seemed reasonable until I arrived and they charged me $55 to CARRY-ON my bag. Would have been $55 to check it but I was afraid they would lose it. Then boarding the plane there was a sign saying "FIT CREW: We have the youngest crew of any airline". To me that says age discrimination and also inexperience. When I finally sat down, there was trash on my seat and also facial oil on the window. It was clear that they did not clean between flights. Sitting down, my seat was broken and reclined every time I leaned against it. I had a child about 5 years old behind me that was disturbing everyone in our area and the flight attendant never addressed the situation with their parent. When the child was slamming their tray up and down on the back of my seat, a stranger finally said something. Also, don't expect to even get water for free. $3 a pop! The landing was also extremely rough. Needless to say, I will never fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I fly a lot. I took spirit because of the great deal I got, but will never fly them again no matter what. I will pay more for a flight because of the poor customer service. My flight was cancelled after being delayed after 10 mins. This is was about my 10th time flying the airlines, I was trying to give them a chance, and every time have had serious problems. I work customer service and understand how annoying these message are and realize there will probably be nothing done about how I feel and the poor service I received, but really this was a horrible experience. Lucky I am savy at finding new flights. I stood in line to change mine while on the phone with spirit and lucky cancelled the flight with spirit. I had to rebook with a different airlines. The difference between the flight was $240. My husband rebooked it for me while I was on the phone with spirit. Never again will I fly this airlines, no matter what I do!"
Pros: "Nothing.."
Cons: "The staff was unhelpful and rude. They gave me a ticket for the wrong city after I said twice "Portland MAINE" not Portland Oregon. Ended up getting the wrong one. This was after my original flight to Boston had been canceled after being delayed 3 times. I was supposed to leave Chicago for Boston at 2 pm. Didn't leave until 8:30pm. As usual I got to the airport two hours early so I spent 8 hours in the airport of the city I was trying to leave. Trying to get a new flight and eventually just got a refund for about half my original ticket and buying a new ticket on another airline. They were rude the whole time and unhelpful. But that's just airports. But the lady giving me the wrong ticket is ridiculous. This review is silly because eventually I got on a JetBlu flight anyway. I never ended up taking Spirit anyway. I still have my return flight booked so lets hope I make it back home on time..."
Pros: "The cabin crew and pilot wert wonderful!"
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare! The self serve kiosk was at the counter and we had to wait in line with full service to even get to one, that took almost 40 minutes, then tsa had an unbelievably long line and took another hour! We got to the gate just in time for final boarding call. The flight crew announced they were going to close doors but changed their mind to continue "refueling" and let almost fifteen more people on! If I had been one of those people who got to the gate to be told boarding was completed I would have been furious! They needed to wait for those people, still it delayed our flight about 20 minutes. The flight itself was a little bumpy, definitely an economy airline."
Cons: "I picked Spirit because it was the cheapest. You get what you pay for. Keep in mind when you choose Spirit, you will have to pay for your carry on that is not your personal item, pay if you want to pick your seat, and pay if you have the person at the counter print your ticket. Spirit also cancelled our flight. We spent about an hour on the phone with Spirit and said that they booked me on another flight. When I went to check in, they didn't have a reservation for me. It was such a cluster. I will pay the extra money to not fly Spirit."
Cons: "I called 10 days before my flight to cancel it due to a death in the family. I was told someone from management would call me within 5 day about the matter. I never heard back so I called the day before my flight and I was told once again that someone from management would call me within 5 days. They apologized that no one ever called me the first time. It's been 13 days since that last phone call and I still haven't heard back. Three tickets down the drain and no one ever called me back so I could at least pay the cancellation fee to get credit for another future flight. Horrible customer service!"
Cons: "We had the unfortunate experience of dealing Spirit Airlines yesterday at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, August 13th, on the way to Boston for a wedding. We were asked to check in at the kiosk, which we did. And after spending $412.36 on airline tickets in July, we had to pay $55 for one carry-on bag. After completing the transaction, we were notified that our boarding passes could not be printed and head to the desk. After speaking with their customer representative, "James", we were told the flight was closed and there was nothing he could do. He said the flights are non-refundable and we should have arrived sooner, although our receipt clearly shows we were there ahead of their 45 minute mark. We asked him for our $55 dollars back for the baggage and he said he'll need to get his supervisor. This is when "Carmen" the supervisor came to the station. Their names are in quotations because both employees refused to turn their badges over to show their names, which seems very shady at a security-centered facility like a main international hub airport. (I took photographs of both employees) She said she can not give us a refund and rudely pointed to our receipt to mention all baggage fees are non-refundable. We asked her why would Spirit even charge us a baggage fee for a flight they were not going to let us get on and she said she didn't know, but she can't help us. Neither employee offered any assistance to get us on another flight. We have contacted Spirit Airlines with the receipts showing the time and photographs of the employees, but I think this issue requires further assistance after reading multiple stories online dealing with this same airline. The fact that they are allowed to charge us for bags the day of, then not refund the money, while taking our flight fees, seems illegal. I urge you to take a look into their business practices. They have cost my family hundreds of dollars, with regards to hotel and rental car cancellations, lost traveling fees, time off work, and the main displeasure of missing a wedding!"
Pros: "Unfortunately there is nothing positive to say here."
Cons: "Sadly we had a horrible experience at the airport with the spirit staff. The customer service representative had over 60 people lined up against the wall, not allowing them to "check in" because of minor delay. They were then hand picking who they would let in line, based on their flight and boarding pass. In addition to this I didn't want to spend my day at the airport so I booked another flight home. THEN to realize HE made a mistake..... That was the flight delayed! I then had to ask for a refund and explain that he mixed up my flight. Had 40 min to make it through security at that point. It's been 3 weeks and still no refund. Never again!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 4.5 hours for no eal reason except poor management. They then boarded early and the agent left. We almost didn't get on and 5 of us were quite panicked. when we got on board we had to wait for maintenance...scary. next when we landed we had to wait 20 minutes becuase they don't have gates. I have a TSA number I filed with Spirit but, I ddin't get that because they don't have a system for it yet. We were supposed to arrive in Boston at 8:13Pm. We got there at 1:20 AM. The charge for one bag and if its' over 40 lbs they change another 30 dollars per bag. Most airlines allow 50lbs and no charge for the first bag. they charge for seat assignment ahead. You must get your boaridng pass ahead or I bleieve they charge you extra. It is unbelevable. I will never fly them again. When"
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "The bathrooms still didn't work even though it was a new plane. The seats didn't recline and there wasn't even a tray to put your things on. Not that we could get a complimentary beverage anyway. I had to charge a $3 Dixie cup of water. What a waste. Oh and they don't have barf bags, so don't be alarmed when someone throws up in the aisle. And when they do, because someone did on my flight, don't expect the flight attendants to know what to do - there isn't a protocol. They dumped coffee grounds on it and just left it there because they didn't have anything to clean it up with. We flew our entire redeye with the lights on with no bathrooms in seats that didn't recline, nauseated from the smell but too broke from all the other fees to be able to afford a drink. This airline is a ripoff."
Pros: "Nothing,"
Cons: "The check in process for horrific. We waited in line for more than an hour and we were at the front of a line that was at least 3 hours long. The counter was understaffed. Supervisors were not available. Counter staff told us the rest of the staff was "hiding in the back" because they did not want to deal with the problems out front. The seats were very uncomfortable and did not recline at all. It might have been worth it if the flight really was as cheap as the original price, but once you paid for your seat, checked bags, and carry on bags, the cost was comparable to the major airlines. Never again. We are considering buying one way tickets home at the counter for extreme amounts of money just to avoid flying home with them."
Cons: "My return flight ticket was cancelled because I did not take the initial flight to Las Vegas. I booked a different leaving flight from Boston because of a job interview and when I showed at the airport to make my return flight booked through Kayak on Spirit , I found out my ticket was cancelled. I was forced to purchase another ticket from another airline. This was concerning since Kayak sent me a reminder about my flight to tell me the flight time had changed. Horrible Customer service at Spirit. The guy i spoke with at the customer service counter said it was not his problem and walked away."
Cons: "So we get a call on the way to the airport saying the flight was cancelled.....followed by "Have a great Day :-) '. They offered to book us two days later on a different flight. What???...do they think I'm a sr. citizen with nothing to do but sit around for two days waiting for a flight? Completely ridiculous. I got a refund....but it was ridiculous. I know... I saw all the other reviews saying to "never book spirit"...plus I had another ridiculous experience on Spirit a couple years ago. But after two disasters, I now know to never book spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing good about this airline... It is a horrible airline run by rude inconsiderate people who try and rip you off with hidden fees and services! Their business motto is "Let's trick our customers into paying more and then lie to them when they ask simple questions" That's not a good way to run a company and quite frankly I don't understand how they're still in business.... See my bad review section for more details"
Cons: "The flights were delayed both ways on the round trip, the first flight by 3 hrs and the return flight 1 hour. Both flights were not delayed due to weather because it was nice out. Just poor management. Our return flight was delayed when I woke up that morning and all day it remained delayed on their website. Until 2 hrs before the flight it was switched back to ontime. We called Spirit to confirm and they said it was ontime. So we had to rush out of the house and skip the dinner my father in law made everyone because the airport is an hour away. We got to the airport only to find the flight was delayed on the board. We went to the gate and the Spirit employees kept assuring us the flight was not delayed even after the scheduled time the flight was suppose to leave they continued to lie and were completely dishonest with everyone on the flight. Very rude customer service and they would just ignore people and walk down the runway and shut the door so they wouldn't talk to us or give anyone an update. We could have gone and had dinner had they not lied to us about the departure time. Just the worst airline I've ever dealt with in my life... they may be cheap but you get what you pay for... and any upfront cost for the ticket is false advertising because once you purchase the ticket you then have to pay for a carry on bag, you have to pay to pick a seat on the plane, you have to pay to check in when you're at the airport, and you have to pay for any services on the plane including the "complimentary drink or snack." Their seats on the plane do not recline at all to make things more comfortable either. I will never fly them again and I warn anyone else who might think saving $50 on the ticket price is worth it cause they get it back in the end and then some!"
Pros: "Cheap flight, no waiting to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed, but the gate agent did not seem to know about it and the email was sent well after the scheduled boarding time. It was completely unnecessary for me to run through the airport. The same thing happened the last time I flew from BWI to Logan with Spirit."
Cons: "The flight attendants were totally unprofessional. After falling asleep during taken off, what sounded like a rowdy brunch with too many mimosas woke me up. It turned out to be four flight attendants hanging out in the rear of the plane chatting very loudly. They were certainly the loudest people on this 6:30 am flight. They were much louder than the three young unattended minor boys on the flight. It sounded like they were having a great time. They were even swapping "funny" stories about passengers from previous flights. I could have slept despite the uncomfortable non-reclining seats on this flight but the flight attendant party made it it impossible. I am sure I was not the only one. Everyone in the back 5 rows was awake. The most unprofessional customer service I have ever experienced. On another note, the spirit website that one must use to check in for free is a pain. The mobile version does not work properly and the password reset link doesnt workl"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had never flown spirit before and I will never fly with them again. First off the pricing they advertise is completely misleading. I purchased my ticket thinking I was saving some money compared to other airlines to only find out that they slap you with a million other fees. You need to pay to bring a carry on, you need to pay for non-alcoholic beverages even water. By the time all of these added up and I was in the middle of my flight sitting in not to mention the most uncomfortable seats with no leg room and no ability to recline for over 5 hours, the total cost was equal to if not greater a flight on my usual go to airlines, American/US."
Cons: "My flight (414 on July 1st) was scheduled to depart around 6PM. Poor weather was forecasted for Boston but had not yet delayed any flights. An earlier flight at that gate to Atlanta had not left because of smell of raw sewage on the plane. Our plane was re-assigned to the Atlanta flight (which was about 4 hours late in departing). Our flight was delayed. And then due to the increasingly poor weather in Boston ended up cancelled with no new flights being available until more than 24 hours later. Because our flight (and not the Atlanta flight) was cancelled because of weather, we were not offered any recourse except to either reschedule or get a refund. It seemed obvious to everyone that a decision had been made to ensure that the Atlanta flight was not the one cancelled since it would have resulted in some type of compensation to the ticket holders. Had our flight left on schedule, we would have missed the bad weather as other airlines were still landing in Boston when our flight was scheduled to land. Will never fly with Spirit again and would highly recommend avoiding this airline to anyone else. Never did find out why the plane smelled of raw sewage either (which is also concerning as well)."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We were told that our flight was delayed, with no explanation. Then, we were told it was weather. However, weather in Boston was clear and then slightly stormy. They said it was a 'ground stop' which is for severe weather. People waiting for passengers in Boston said that the weather was not severe. Then, after waiting for hours, with a plane at our gate, our flight was canceled, without explanation. People received conflicting information from, a cabin pressure issue, to a severe smell aboard the plane, to a ground stop in Boston. Spirit could not book us on another flight or a different airline until potentially late the next day (we didn't wait in the 2-hour line to find out). This is the last time I will fly with Spirit. Budget tickets shouldn't mean budget service and lies."
Pros: "Crew stayed friendly despite an annoying delay. Information about the delay was first shared quickly (by the pilot I think)."
Cons: "After not even boarding before our departure time and then being told to deboard and wait two hours, there were several concerns. 1) The staff who handled boarding weren't articulate in the process and came off rude. 2) By the time we deboarded, all the kitchens were closed and even snack places were closing. So everyone who was now upset and hungry. 3) When it was time to board again, no announcement was made over the loud speaker, despite several of us getting confirmation that would happen when we first got off. 4) If it was my company, and I would have noticed the terminal was closing the shops and would have offered complimentary beverages to passengers during the flight. Almost everyone I talked to or overheard directly expressed their dissatisfaction with Spirit airlines and vowed they would not be using them again. An unexpected free soda would have been a cheap way for you to sway some people to give it another shot."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was absolutely terrible. I thought that the walk-up fee for luggage would be $35/45 but when it was $50 I gave a shocked expression. Which, that's fine if it was advertised that way (I'm sure it was). But when the lazy desk attendant, who was doing nothing but holding a wall up, says "I can't believe people are shocked when you tell them that, it's like come on you know." I'm fine with you saying that when I'm gone, but when people are standing right there and can hear you while you are acting like they aren't even standing there....that is when you have a customer service issue. Although I wanted to lash into him, I felt like it wasn't worth it and much below my level, and I apologize for not gathering that person's name so you may address this properly. Understandable that there are delays, but there shouldn't be a delay EVERY time that a person fly's on a certain airline. I'll try to print tickets online and it says error, but then need to have a discussion about why I am not paying $10."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My flight to Boston was 1:54 PM ORD 6/2/16. I booked this flight months ago in order to attend my daughter MIT convocation ceremony on 6/3/16. I arrived at ORD very early in the morning on 6/2/16 and waited at the gate L7 before 11 AM. The flight was kept delay several times, I waited near by the gate and checked with the desk lady many times and was kept told that the flight was delayed, finally the flight left around 3:55 PM without any announcement. I missed the flight. I was told to go to gate 11A for this issue. Martin who worked there with the customers like me who missed the flight was very impatient and not helpful at all. Never take the Sprint airline again."
Pros: "We were on time."
Cons: "First of all, the bag fees are overpriced (and I booked mine online ahead of time). When I was paying for it online, the website crashed three times while processing my payment (in two different browsers) and ultimately wouldn't let me print my boarding ticket. Secondly, when waiting to board, the staff person at the counter made a drawn-out announcement about the checked bag fee increasing no fewer than twenty times. Similarly, the credit card membership announcement during the flight was a fifteen-minute affair that was irritating and unwelcome. I understand that it's a budget airline and that part of enjoying reduced ticket fare is a compromise to endure advertisements and extra fees for things, but when it becomes endless and annoying, preventing you from talking to your neighbor, sleeping, or just enjoying the flight, it really calls into question whether it's worth it. Finally, the cabin was much too hot and, although several people called it to the staff's attention, the air conditioning never seemed to work. Overall it was an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience that made me reconsider whether it was worth the reduced fare, which isn't all that much lower than the mainstream option. I was disappointed and frustrated."
Pros: "What I thought was a very cheap flight home - now I know to be a scam."
Cons: "The fact that Spirit Airlines nickles & dimes you all the way. The base fare was about $60 and I've since spent over $200 on this flight. Between carry on and checked luggage fees, seat costs, and even a cost to print boarding pass (since they don't have mobile boarding passes), I'm over $200 for this one way ticket from Detroit to Boston. This morning I arrived to the airport at 6:15 AM for a 7:15 AM flight. I was already checked in and had paid for my checked bag. I was directed to the wrong line to give them my bag. After waiting in this line for about 25 minutes, I was directed to another line. By the time I got up to the an agent - they informed me I was too late by 10 minutes and would be missing my flight. I fly just about every other week for work and this has NEVER happened and would never happen with airlines like Jet Blue, American and Delta. Today I'm missing a very important day of work. In addition to all the costs associated with this flight, cab fares to/from the airport and hotel expenses are totaling just about $200. I will absolutely NEVER fly Spirit again."
