Pros: "comfortable seat, more room for legs"
Cons: "the altitude reduced too fast when we approach to boston"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, reasonable space in cabin and overhead bins"
Cons: "The tray table was very dirty when I put it down. I brought my own wipes but that was pretty bad."
Pros: "Nothing really. It was as expected, but not more."
Cons: "Seats were cramped for all the talk of legroom"
Pros: "The crew was great. They seemed to show that they cared. A passenger next to me was not feeling well, so one of the crews kept checking on her, offering her water and ginger ale."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi connection was spotty throughout the flight. Maybe because it was an older plane (A320). I flew in A321 BOS-LAX and the Wi-Fi was much more reliable."
Cons: "I would have loved to have been able to pick my seat with my booking. I am 73 inches tall and I like to be in the aisle seat so I can stretch my legs out."
Cons: "The plane seems dated. My tray table was wobbly and crooked, the video screen was blurry and my headphones jack had a lot of static, rendering in flight entertainment useless. Luckily I had music on my phone."
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"
Pros: "Yes, crew were amazing."
Cons: "The specific plane we had for the short trip had mediocre TVs and the seat's headrests were too short for me to comfortably put my head back."
Cons: "The crew was SO loud. I did not sleep at all on this night flight."
Pros: "The flight was fast and safe!"
Cons: "Tv could’ve worked and the seats should have more space"
Pros: "flight was in 1 hour early!!! not over crowded.. flight crew was nice"
Cons: "baggage fees are ridiculous. tvs are old and hardly work."
Pros: "Wasn’t a full flight so middle seat was open making it more comfortable. Smooth ride. Good crew."
Cons: "TVs weren’t working so they had to re boot mid way through, all movies re started so had to wait or re watch the parts you did already. Also my screen cut out several times and had a green hue."
Pros: "Everything. Perfect service"
Pros: "The crew and services are always friendly and happy to serve. They always seem to enjoy their work!"
Cons: "Maybe a vegetarian or salad selection."
Pros: "Crew was beautiful"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Left very late because of delayed inbound flight and need for deicing."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to weather. Every effort was made and ultimately the wait was minimal as compared to the original estimate. The attendant at gate 4e was so courteous and kept us constantly informed. Staff are always courteous, friendly and work very hard to help. Jet Blue is definitely my preference when flying."
Pros: "Each seat had power outlet for laptop as well as a USB port"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours, in spite of good weather at both airports."
Pros: "The inflight crew was amazing. Natalie was a sweetheart and super helpful. She even gave some of us a tour of the galleys and taught us a few things about Mosaic customers as well as a few other operational things. I didn’t catch the other flights attendants names as they covered more of the back of the plane but they were both insanely hospitable and it was very clear that they loved their jobs as they were having fun. The women who checked us in also accommodated is with Even More Space seats after knowing we were crew members!"
Cons: "As a non-rev I have no room to criticize. Only thing would be that the A/C model was an older version of the A320 (and I know that it will be updated eventually)"
Pros: "Had booked Syracuse to Pittsburg to pick up new truck at Washington Ford. Truck never came in, despite being in transit for well over a month. Called Jet Blue the day before, and found change fee was more than cost of flight. Dealer said they'd cover, but I have no guarantee. Truck still not in. Can't book flight until in. Dealer not very communicative. The whole world is a mess. What can I expect?"
Cons: "Couldn't fly. Not Jet Blues fault."
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "We were delayed before take-off but the Captain kept us informed, great job!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "All"
Pros: "Entertainment was great with many options and WiFi included."
Cons: "I think it is time for US airlines to offer complementary meals, especially in a 6 hours flight across US! Just a small bag of chips for a 6 hours flight? European airlines offer full meal for a 2 hours flight..."
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Pros: "Good legroom. Big delay so I did not get to sleep at hotel until 2 am. The flight was very bumpy. The delay was not posted in the airport monitors. Only found out when I got to gate. Flight attendants had blankets to sell on a cold plane that warmed up as the flight progresses."
Cons: "Checking in was difficult for me. My husband was able to check in through the cruise line. when we got to the airport the counter was not open. i checked in but did not get a seat assignment. When we got to the gate our flight to Boston was delayed until 3am from midnight. I tried getting a seat assignment but was told I had to wait until all the other flights were taken care of. I finally got my seat with my husband after 10p. I am a very nervous flyer so this was very nerve racking for me. But once I got my seat I calmed down. We always fly Jet Blue when we can. The flight itself was wonderful. And the counter folks were very patient with the customers dealing with delays."
Cons: "plane was late leaving causing me a 2 hour delay upon arrival arm rest was missing from seat and headphone jack did not work correctly"
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "I LOVED the comfort of the ample seating space and leg room, compared to American and free WiFi and movies with the individual monitors on the seat backs for every passenger. I flew Jet Blue on my return flight from LA to Boston to attend our son’s USC graduation. The flight from Boston to LA was on an American Airlines flight. The seats were super narrow with very cramped leg room. To add insult to discomfort , I learned just after take off on the American flight to LA that our dogs got loose at home and the person caring for them was frantic. I had to purchase in flight WIFI ($16/ hour $18 for the entire flight) to attend to the Lost dog issue (hugely stressful) only to learn after the flight that $300 worth of fraudulent charges occurred during the flight that my bank’s fraud department claims occurred as a result of entering my card information to purchase the internet access. That depleted the majority of our travel budget. (We live paycheck to paycheck and had pinched & saved to be able attend this special event) I was so apprehensive on the returning flight and can’t describe my relief to learn the WIFI was free. My fears dissolved as did my aching head and back as I settled into a wonderfully comfortable seat with far more leg room than my prior flight. Thanks Key Blue! You have a fan for life!!"
Cons: "Not one thing I didn’t like!!!!"
Pros: "The plane left on time, the staff members were attentive and there was more leg room than on other planes."
Cons: "We were very happy when we got seats in rows 3 and 4 but by the time we boarded only 3 of the 4 carry on bags we had made it into the overhead compartments. We had no other checked bags so we had to go to baggage claim for one carry on. People were putting small bags that should go under the seats in the upper compartments."
Cons: "Ink stains on the seats, garbage near feet from precious flights, overall pretty disgusting"
Pros: "Seating was fine, flight attendants were very nice. It was a short flight and everyone worked to be efficient about boarding once the plane was ready for boarding."
Cons: "I wish the plane had come on time--the delay was inconvenient, although I understand sometimes the reason for delay can't be helped."
Pros: "watching a current movie. was traveling with an elder and the staff (all of the staff) were very helpful in accommodating her needs. It was a fairly new plane and was comfortable and enough leg room fro someone who is 5'1" which believe it or not is not true for all airlinnes"
Cons: "I hate having to go through security even with TSA pre check. I would like to go back to when flying was fun."
Cons: "They want to charge for everything. Traveled with my husband but we couldn't sit together without having to pay $200. The seat assignment happened at the gate for us and they didn't accommodate our request to stay together. Seats were small, hard and uncomfortable."
Cons: "We had booked our flight well in advance (oct 2017). Six travelers sitting in one row. Day before checked in through the jet blue app and our electronic boarding passes had our seats confirmed. Next day check bags and print boarding passes and our seats are all changed and everyone is separated!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overhead reading lights didn’t work, my partners tv didn’t work, the movie I had was only in Spanish and the overhead bins were too small and had to gate check my bag Sloppy plane maintenance by JetBlue Not worth the extra money to sit in extra leg room seats over$120 for two of us"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times. The plane was hot. There was a loud crying baby behind us kicking our seats... I thought there was more than one baby and was surprised to see all that was generated by one. Our attendant was a little snarky and dismissive. One entertainment screen was on the fritz, and the sound was messed up on the other, so we hacked them together to make one functioning system for one of us. The fly-fi was out of range for all but the last 30 minutes. The seats seem to be getting narrower, and I've lost weight!"
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Cons: "Would like more healthily snacks included"
Pros: "Haven't flown jet blue that often but it was easy, no problems, on time, roomy, something to drink right away and later a complimentary snack."
Cons: "Not much movie choice"
Pros: "Economical with VIP customer service."
Pros: "Pilot came out to talk to us! Flight attendant handled things very well!"
Cons: "Wish there had been more food options."
Pros: "Professional and responsible crew."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "the air crew was excellent for a great flight! thank you pilot and copilot! :)"
Cons: "waiting in the airplane for a long time for the "union" ground crew to load the bags into the aircraft. They were on hold because of lightning in the area but we saw only 1 strike far away. that's a "union" for you! :/"
Cons: "Flight left more than 3 hours late. poor communication with passengers to explain till when and why the flight was late"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours, then a seats were very cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Seats are tight"

Pros: "Quick Boarding Awesome staff"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Just better food"
Pros: "The ease of travel that Delta efforts me"
Cons: "Easier status earnings"
Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Accurate arrival time"
Pros: "Actual flight was great!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"
Cons: "they did not serve food in my section at all."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Checking in was easy, the overall flight was quiet and quick and on time"
Cons: "Nothing to report here"
Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "They had available seats on an earlier flight and I was able to get home super quick! My checked bag also made it which was great!"
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"
Pros: "EXcellent"
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "The speediness if the crew to get the flight boarded and in the air, entire process form boarding to unboarding was about an hour."
Cons: "Plane was loud and very stuffy, but the flight being so shore made it managable, overall good flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delta cancelled direct flight and we ended up standby on two flights, getting into NYC much later. Not nice."
Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to mechanical issues for over 4 hours causing me to miss my connection in Atlanta. Vincent with Delta gave me a new flight schedule that would get me to my destination with little to no delay. He was fantastic."
Cons: "Once in Atlanta they had trouble finding the notes Vincent wrote, and could not pull up boarding passes or my schedule to Acapukco. The next morning I arrived early at the gate and a Delta rep was able to print my boarding pass to Mexico City but had no information on my next flight. I was told to get on the flight regardless. I was sent to Mexico City early the next morning and once I arrived I was informed I was not able to get on the 11:45 flight, even though I was assured I would have no trouble. I was not put on a flight until after 2pm that afternoon. Over 3 hours after I was schedule to arrive at my destination. The lack of communication between airports was unacceptable. Each staff member tried to accommodate me, each time having a lack of communication disrupt my travel plans yet again."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."

2+ hour delay. Seats are too cramped, packed in like sardines . Snacks where awful. Miserable flying experience.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid additional money for 3 seats together, when I got to check in I was told I cannot do that. I had to sit separately from my children. I was sat next to an obese man. I kindly asked the flight attendant if I can take empty seat across the aisle from me and was told no without a reason. I thought we were doing social distance ,but apparently not. As for there earlier claim of no 3 seats available next to each other .. it was obviously a lie because the seats just across from me where empty. I hope not to fly on American Airlines again."
Cons: "Put departure kept getting delayed"
Pros: "On time, good boarding process."
Pros: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."
Cons: "No room for long legs. Seats too close"
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."
Pros: "Seat extremely comfortable."
Cons: "We sat waiting a few minutes after everyone was onboard."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, no compensation, check-in was horrible."
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant closed all the overhead bin doors...even though there was room in them and she INDICATED as much...so why did she close them DURING the ongoing boarding process. Very strange and very dumb!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Cons: "Departure gate staff forced passengers to check bags, when there were multiple empty overhead bins on the plane at takeoff. This makes no sense."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Got to Nj safe"
Cons: "3hr delay leaving; delays in getting bags at baggage claim"
Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I flew American four times in 7 days, every flight was delayed. delay times varied from 90 minutes to over three hours. Fog in Chicago was beyond anybody's control, but the other times were not weather related, I recently flew frontier Air and their flights were also late. I jinxed myself by stating I never have this issue with AA. Great job at proving me wrong. I flew a good bit last year and these issues didn't start until after the new year., Thank you for your time."
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Pros: "All went well the St"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."
Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "Going down stairs to tarmac in CLT was very difficult for this old lady"
Cons: "Deplaning"
Pros: "Crew very quick and efficient in service"
Cons: "Over crowding, boarding is a jungle,"
Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour. The plane was uncomfortably hot while we taxied. They could have waited to board the flight or served drinks while we waited."
Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Cons: "Our flight attendant was brusque, not very nice, and couldn't understand her on the announcements"
Pros: "Left on time arrived at destination early"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't smile was abrupt impatient"
Pros: "the plane was great"
Cons: "the flight was delayed one hour"
Pros: "The flight was delayed. I did make my connection"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, pilot kept us informed."
Cons: "We were delayed upon landing but I realize the circumstances were beyond the crews control so no point fretting. Still disappointing nonetheless."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "I found out that my original flight (Wilmington to NY) was canceled 5 hours before it was scheduled to leave. I was rebooked on an earlier flight to Charlotte, which I could do because I had coincidently finished packing early and lived close to the airport. At the airport, my new flight was delayed, which could have caused me to miss my connecting flight to Boston and be stuck at the Charlotte airport overnight. I was then rebooked on a flight that was leaving to NY, with a connecting flight to Boston at 7."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "I’m handicapped and requested wheelchair assistance when I booked flight. Not once was it ready I had to ask for it at every leg of trip, going and returning. Took morning flight home to connection and when landed was told that flight was cancelled and rebooked my on another flight which was fine but didn’t have the seat available that was originally designated and the woman at customer service didn’t care. New flight delayed 3 times and I ended up being in Newark for 9 hours and got a total of $30 in vouchers, had anyone that gives these vouchers out bought anything in an airport before? And the $30 I did get I had to beg for as well. No more united for me thanks."
Pros: "First class service was excellent, food was good and entertainment was also good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 5 hours but overall flight was good."
Pros: "787 is a nice plane. I also like getting miles since I accumulate most miles with United. Not much else to boast about."
Cons: "The outbound plane from Newark to Frankfurt was late by 1.5 hr because United could not figure out how to bring the plane (that was sitting in the middle of the airfield to the gate and then they realized that they need get catering supplies to feed the passengers and we were waiting for that too. The inbound flight from Frankfurt to Newark was late by 1.45 hours since they were fixing a computer problem on board. The flight was totally over air-conditioned and when I asked to bring an extra blanket for me the flight attendant started lecturing me that I was wearing shorts and a polo shirt (in the 86F heat at FRA and EWR it was ok!) and that she had no blankets. The second flight attendant who for some reason came 2 miins after the first one apologized for the attitude of his female colleague and immediately brought me an extra blanket."
Pros: "Got to destination 30 min early"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Broken video monitor on my seat and window seat. Ripped and dirty pockets on all the back of the seats in the row in front of me. Just a feeling of disrepair."
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were professional, efficient and very accommodating. The pilot was also excellent. He kept us informed of the status of the flight throughout the trip."
Cons: "The plane was terrible. The seats are so close together that you cannot move. The aisle is so narrow that one person can barely down it. Forget it if you have to pass by someone. The bathroom too is so small that you cannot move in it. It’s so uncomfortable. The new boarding process is just dumb. And to make matters worse they don’t even bother to check the boarding groups when you board. I had a person in a later boarding group in front of me and they let her on anyway — so what’s the point of having boarding groups. They should just go back to boarding from the rear of the plane first - that is the most efficient and quick way to do it. The so called entertainment is a joke. There is a very small choice of movies/TV shows to watch and that’s it. The free wi-fi gets you nowhere."
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "Service was very good, they were on time and considering the flight time food was good too."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Pros: "all smooth"
Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Cons: "Felt very cramped which did not make for a good res eye flight from LAX to EWR."
Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Long delay in Knoxville because of atc clearance issues and there is not much to do in the terminal. Only give snacks and water would of rathered a sandwich"
Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."
Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"
Pros: "very kind crew members and flight was an hour early."
Cons: "The worst food on an airline ever...witnessed so much waste all around me. No one could eat it. Entertainment broken and sound quality awful."
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"
Pros: "Decent leg room. Wonderful to do the flight non-stop from NYC to Delhi."
Cons: "United. September 14 Newark to Delhi Premium Economy Entertainment screen didn't work for 1st hour of the flight. the movie list was mediocre at best. The screen was smeared with some substance. The list of movies on the United entertainment app is great (via internet) but connectivity on this type of flight is spotty so the traveler is forced back to the antique screen plane system. Dinner. Butter chicken or vegetable options. Food was bland and very small portions for the length of flight. The snack was delivered immediately after dinner was picked up. I did not open it. Looked like a hard roll with something on it. Style of service is abrupt, bordering on rude. Uses terminology that non-US travelers from different cultures would not understand, for instance do you want "white" coffee. Asked me if I had someone at home to pick up after me as she felt she was cleaning too much off the floor. Her comments appeared to be directed at me but it was not my trash (and even if it was, a better approach would be recommended). The flight attendant realized she had gone too far and apologized. Then complained about this "route" being difficult, with no one listening. She concluded by wishing me a good flight and saying that she hoped that she had not offended me. I assured her that she had. Breakfast was mediocre. Egg with soggy potatoes and an inedible sausage. Did not see what they were offering in the veggie dish. Staff seems tired and not culturally sensitive. There needs to be some retraining and consideration given to long haul menus and entertainment. I take this flight at least once a year. It continues to deteriorate."
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight comfort and online crew were good and no complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed boarding 31/2 hrs and then over an hour delayed on the ground before takeoff."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
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: "THE SECURITY CHECK WAS A BIT TO MUCH, BUT OVERALL A WONDERFUL FLIGHT."
Cons: "Southwest has much better experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Beth legs of the flight were delayed. The first delay causing me to miss my connecting flight and he second causing me to miss an import an important dinner in Boston."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."
Pros: "United now has small mattresses to put on your lay flat bed in business class. Very comfortable! For once they had my first choice for lunch and it was delicious."
Cons: "The seats are lay flat beds. However they are very narrow especially where the feet are resting. If you are over 5ft10 it's too short a bed. You feel that your feet are pressed together when you sleep. Also no seat level storage space. Seats are narrow and are almost impossible to sleep in resting on your side. Would suggest united try out the Emirates airline business class seats on the A380. The British Airways business class seats and New Zealand business class lay flat seats are also much nicer."
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Cons: "Starting at Brussels airport I was questioned as if I was a threat. The lady wore an UA uniform. She asked me questions like these: where do you live when you come to Belgium? What do you do when you are in Belgium? Why do you come to belgium often? Then we were 2 blacks in the last line and we were all selected for "random" check during which the agent touched all parts of my body!!!!! Last, after I ate the food served on board, I went to the bathroom twice, I took I modicum before!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Cons: "First when seated there was no room for even my purse in the overhead storage. I had to hold everything in my lap. My ticket seats were separated when I was sure I booked the seats together. The blanket given to my seat was in package but was used and very vile smelling. The flight attendant was very rude, had an attitude when I asked for a drink after I wasn't offered one. When landing and I was asleep, flight attendant hit my head to wake me up to adjust my seat to the correct position rather then in a polite way. Also luggage was not with the rest of the planes luggage and on a differnt carousel. I travel often and are use to glitches, but when cleanliness and attitude come into the picture those are things that can be controlled. I wish to no longer travel with United again."
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "It was pretty cheap"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the pilot wasn't there. I feel like this sort of thing always happens with united. When I went to ask for help about my connecting flights I was treated like I was the one inconveniencing them. And the response I got was there's nothing we can do if you miss your connecting flight the only one going out today is at 10 pm but it's completely full already. I feel like it was the worst customer service and while I realize the lady I spoke to was probably not the one responsible for the captain being Mia she could have been more kind and more helpful by 100%"
Pros: "Quick and efficient"
Cons: "Very small and hard to sleep if you are a tall human. Ended up with neck ache"
Pros: "Depart was organized and the flight arrived before the time."
Cons: "Snack is horrible even water is very difficult to get."
Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was OK"
Cons: "No delays. I had a delay"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane. Had to pay more for my carry on bag than my flight ticket"
Pros: "The pilots were informative and polite."
Cons: "There’s no internet. Added fees for carry on is ridiculous. I flew Delta on outbound and read that my carry on would not be charged on my return flight with Spirit. The crew were not polite. The guy responds to questions, with a “HUH?!”And seemed not well trained with how to properly engage clientele. The plane was totally loaded 40 mins before the take off time, making it difficult to get pre purchased food. I arrive at 10:15 and everyone’s getting on the plane that’s scheduled to leave at 11:05."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Got to airport on time but long term parking was full so had to find an alternate place to park. When I got through the check in line at Spirit they told me it was too late to get my bag on the flight but I could still get on. Next flight would be tomorrow. Asked if they could send my luggage on the next flight- no. Asked if I could leave it and have someone pick it up for me-no. Asked if I could carry it in-no. My brother was already cleared to go. We asked if we could get a refund and then fly another airline-no. Spoke to a manager. He said he would refund me on the flight going. My husband recently passed away and I was flying to see my son for my 65th birthday. I am now on a Southwest plane flying out of Ft Lauderdale in the last seat on the plane. I should get into Atl around 7:00. Then I will have to take an Iber to get to his house because he has a function for his daughter that I will miss. The people at Spirit were rude and unyielding. The agent at Southwest was kind and understanding and did the best she could . I originally booked Spirit because it was the cheapest. Turned out that it is costing me about $200 and 6 hours more. Spirit, NO MORE!!! I’m"
Cons: "I ended up having to be at the airport for a total of 14hours. They cancelled our flight and I had a baby with me so we had had to rebook with another airline to get back him flying out at 6pm to Charlotte then getting home at 1am. Got to the airport that morning at 8am."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about this trip because the website would not send me a boarding pass although I checked in online twice the day before, so I never had the opportunity to even get in the gate. I asked for a boarding pass through an email and it didn't come through, twice. I did not think much of it because I have had problems receiving emails from Spirit in the past and I have always been able to log into my account and access the boarding pass on the website. The morning of the flight, the website locked me out and wouldn't allow me to log in. I actually had to leave the security line to try to sort the issue out. The kiosk at the airport told me I was at the wrong airport (I was not). I went to the front desk and the agent was SUPREMELY unhelpful and unconcerned, and marked me as a no show at 7:05 for a flight leaving at 7:25. Even though I was standing right in front of her. Even though I had left the security line to deal with the issue. I had to get to my destination that day, which happens to be the reason I bought a ticket in the first place, so I had to spend an additional $500 on a Southwest ticket because the agent at the front desk of Spirit said I had no other options with Spirit that day. I called customer service and despite escalating the issue to a manager, I was essentially told "sorry for your luck" and sent on my way. The manager even asked, at the end of the call after telling me a refund would not be possible, if I wanted to purchase an airline ticket while I was on the phone. I have bought a fair number of Spirit tickets in the past. I unfortunately already have a ticket lined up with Spirit Airlines in November but I will never be purchasing another ticket from this airline again. It was an absurd scenario - I paid for a ticket and was not able to redeem the ticket I paid for - and I should not be have to pay the price for Spirit Airlines having poor IT."
Pros: "Crew was professional and outgoing."
Cons: "Customer service personnel at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport were disinterested and unfriendly. Processes seem unorganized and no one appears to be in charge. One person in particular who was calling out cities to customers standing in line in order to move them to an agent quicker due to them being close to the boarding time had horrible body language once he identified the people in the city he called out. He looked disgusted and was shaking his head and acting like they committed a crime. The opposite approach could be to be friendly and just go with the flow, it won't be the first or last time you will have people running late in an airport. On top of that, no one is perfect and I would bet every dollar in my savings account that he has been running late before. I hate Spirit and would never fly with them if I wasn't forced to based on job requirements. I'm honestly surprised Spirit is still in business. Remarkable."
Pros: "Swap to Delta flight."
Cons: "Return ticket also cancelled without my knowledge. Had to argue to get return ticket restored."
Pros: "Let the handicap get on first and wheelchair assistance I love sitting on the aisle seat very comfortable for the limp in my left side"
Cons: "The babies crying across the aisle from me just too busy and parents letting them get away with it that's not good for people trying to get a little shut-eye but it's all good"
Cons: "They delayed the flight by 5 hours and flew in early so 20 of us missed that later flight, even though we received an email it was coming in on time moments after it left. I had to cancel and fly with Delta. The next dayI had to go to retrieve my suitcase from Fort Lsuderdale. I ended up flying into West Palm Beach. I will never fly Spirit for any money ever again. The hidden costs are ridiculous. I had no choice but to buy a seat because there are no free seats. That flight costed more than double the original cost."
Pros: "Staff gave me a refund for return flight& baggage fee"
Cons: "I was supposed to depart at 10 pm. Flight was delayed twice via email & again once I arrived at the airport to 1:40 am. Around 1 am, the flight was cancelled. There was almost an angry & very immature mob at the gate desk for flight rebooking or refunds. There were few flights for the following evening, which sold out quickly; then rebooking were for the day after that. They did not offer to cover any hotel arrangements. The staff handled it pretty well, but it made my wait to get a refund even longer. I had to find a rental car to drive overnight from Orlando to Atlanta. I finally got home at 10:30 am."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The experience felt a bit chaotic and impersonal. It's a bit stressful to manage all the extra costs as well. I tend to enjoy flying but I mostly just wanted to get this experience over with. Spirit gets you from point A to point B, safely but there's nothing enjoyable about it. Also, on the flight back we waited on the runway almost 45 minutes for an open terminal. We were about 30 minutes early but that wouldn't explain the terminal opening up 15 mins after our expected arrival time. However, I don't know if this was Spirit's fault or the airport's."
Cons: "Flight is always late I have traveled with this airline before and it is the same every time late"
Cons: "Flight gates closed hour early were not able to be opened no refund no other flight to get on nor email to let me know it was going to be closed"
Pros: "I paid twice as much to check bags as I do on other airlines. It costed me a total of $94 to check one bag to and from. Also the customer service was poor. It took forever to claim my luggage because the flight attendants told me an incorrect carousel number. I was on a wild goose in the airport and because of this I obviously don't feel it was worth the extra money checking bags. Also I didn't like that I had to become an online member only to save ten bucks on my returning checked luggage. Don't waste your money!"
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded to first class which meant bigger seats so always a plus. Fast boarding and de-boarding."
Cons: "I did not have the opportunity to have a checked luggage at the time of booking. I did it later when I checked in. It was more expensive"
Pros: "Flight was cheap (or so we thought: read the rest of the review), crew was awesome"
Cons: "Waited almost an hour in the "quick bag drop" line, nearly caused us to miss our flight. Also, 2 checked bags and one carry-on cost us $155 extra EACH WAY!!! Was not expecting that!!! Don't know any other airline that shoves it in you so deep, and by that time it was too late to do anything about it but pay their exorbitant fees. Could have flown Delta by the time we paid all the charges. Won't be flying Spirit again, felt quite bamboozled by this experience. If we had had another choice to get back home we would have used it!"
Pros: "Everything on time and no issues."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped, but not a long flight so no big deal"
Pros: "The seating and the Captain of the plane"
Cons: "I ended up spending another $600 to get home from Vegas with another airline July 18th 2016. The manager at the gate in Vegas his name was "Omaha" did absolutely nothing to help me get home what made the experience even worse the next flight was a connecting flight that was sold out so they tried to fly me to Detroit where I would have been stuck til the next day and they didn't care about me having to work the next day. I also payed the extra $52 baggage fee with Spirit leaving Vegas but that needs to be refunded as well as my flight that was previously paid for that I take. Overall because of the unhelpful employees I had to spend an extra $600 to fly with another airline to make it home that day and I also pay $52 baggage fee with Spirit that I didn't even use that needs to be refunded."
Pros: "Nothing! Grateful for a safe landing"
Cons: "Charge too much for luggage; uncomfortable seats; nothing to drink or snacks on flight; flight delayed; I will NEVER fly spirit again, the price is NOT worth it; first and LAST time flying this airline. Just HORRIBLE"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to bad weather that cleared up once we got off the plane....then the next flight out was 2 days later and super late"
Pros: "I liked that I never flew with this airline."
Cons: "My flight that was supposed to be only two hours from Baltimore to Atlanta never happened. Upon arrival to check my bag, a mere twenty minutes after receiving an "on time" email from the airline, they canceled the flight. Not delayed, straight up canceled it. The next flight offered to me would be two days later arriving late Saturday night and with a layover. Their customer service was terrible, no one cared that they were putting so many people out from families to single travelers. It was nuts. I eventually got a refund and flew out the next day on a different airline, vowing to never book with Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight went well but overall I was not pleased with Spirit and do not plan on using them anymore!"
Cons: "I had to pay for my luggage which I'm use to carry on being free and the flight was delayed twice!! First they told me 12 and then it was 1"
Cons: "The charges for seats, carry-on, and checked bags are incredibly outrageously high. The added costs makes the flight way more than flying on another airline."
Cons: "the personal at the airport was super rude, so i canceled the trip and booked with united right at the airport!!!"
Pros: "I liked that we had a female pilot on this particular flight."
Cons: "I had to pay to get a seat on the plane after I had bought the ticket. Seat prices ranged from $4-$20+, in addition to the plane ticket. There is not a carry on bag included in any of this so you have to pay an additional $45-$55 for a carry on and even more if you want to check a bag. There is no in flight entertainment (I like to read so this I didn't mind too much) or complimentary beverage service. Also, the seats don't recline at all. It ends up being a very uncomfortable flight for the same price you would pay for a better airline that builds that into the price instead of surprising you with fees after the fact. Will likely never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by weather. However, the Spirit e-mails were inaccurate and I almost missed boarding because I believed the e-mails and the airport board. When I, by chance checked the board, I found out that the incoming plane in question had landed and, therefore, went to the gate and learned that Spirit had "secretly" moved things up and would soon close the door. Had I believed the e-mail from Spirit, I would have been left -- and they would have blamed it on me -- because I relied on Spirit's e-mails."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I did NOT like the extra charges for things I would not be asked to pay for on other flights. For that reason, I will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight crew is nice."
Cons: "I'm a small to average sized woman and I had no room to move. It's the only airline that goes from Atlanta to Atlanic City so I have no choice. Oh and the 2 hour delay was aweful too. I understand these things happen but I never expect that in May."
Pros: "The boarding was great & efficient."
Cons: "Crew- Josh, a blond, & brunette. The brunette arguing with passengers. Not explaining the Spirit policy that "Everything costs including water!" Getting an attitude and stating " don't be looking at me like that after the price was stated." Then during the landing process while gathered in the back galley... Spoke about ... Hoping they don't miss there train once arriving at the airport, these people move slow, Josh - We do have 6 wheelchairs but we will see if they can miraculously walk once we arrive. The brunnette, 19f (the water passenger) better hope I don't have the marshals waiting for her, let her look at me one more time!" I was sitting in row 24... Yes I could hear it all.... Completely UNPROFESSIONAL...!"
Cons: "There was an hour delay due to maintenance issues so I was unable to get to my rental car or hotel in time."
Cons: "We had got stuck in traffic on the way to O'hare yet still arrived MORE than 45 minutes before our flight, but the Spirit airlines crew did not even give us the opportunity to ATTEMPT to check in to get our boarding passes. We missed our flight and are now out all of the money we had spent to go enjoy our first wedding anniversary together. This is unacceptable... While I understand that traffic issues fall outside of the airline's responsibility - SHOWING EMPATHY toward our situation could have made things easier, but they didn't - just very cold, non-customer service friendly, garbage. Perhaps if the Spirit airlines team was better at checking people in at the terminal, instead of having a 'who cares' mentality and allowing a 35 person line to be AT A STAND STILL, perhaps we could have made the plane, and I currently could have been writing an amazing review in Florida right now, but I'm not. I am in Indiana, trying to fight with the airline, the travel insurance agency, and others trying to re-coop my losses. this was an overall terrible experience, and I feel like a fool even attempting to try doing this. By all means feel free to contact me to discuss my frustration in person Sean Warren"
Pros: "On time flights, OK seating, friendly cabin attendants."
Cons: "Checking baggage was a long process. Cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "No TSA pre-check, $55 fee for a carry on, crowded seating - felt like I was taking a bus. Would rather pay full price for another airline"
Cons: "We were in the airport, past security, in the terminal waiting to board a plane that never showed up. Kayak sent an email saying the flight was cancelled. There was no indication from Spirit through electronic communication, notifications on their in airport boards, and there were not even any spirit employees in the airport terminal. I called spirit. They confirmed that the flight was cancelled and assured me that it was okay and that they would be able to get me on another flight... in eight days. Yes, really, 8 days. I demanded a refund, flew with another airline, and vowed to never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The customer service was poor and there wasn't any professionalism from the time getting the boarding pass to the time I got to Atlanta."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole experience. I will never use Spirit or Kayak again! Biggest ripoff off companies ever and I nights well include your parent company pricelin!"
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "The seats were extremely close to the passengers in the row in front of us and didn't recline. Had to wait 45 minutes at baggage claim for bags to appear. No one from Spirit told us what was happening. After 45 minutes there was a voice announcement that an oversized wheel chair had caused the delay. After another five minutes our luggage appeared. My brand new suit case arrived with structural damage and was filthy - like it had been dropped and dragged. Reported this to Spirit personnel and not one of them apologized for the inconvenience. We took it o a luggage repair shop and it is a complete loss. Very unhappy Spirit customer."
Pros: "Customer service at desk was great"
Cons: "Spirit cancelled the flight within an hour of boarding time. Offered another flight but wasn't able to get to my friends wedding."
Pros: "I did not experience long lines while boarding. I like how it was simply zones and not time spent calling a variety of different types of members. I randomly picked my seat and ended up in the first row with a larger seat, leg room, and a large armrest. This was a first for me and I was so much more comfortable than any other flight I have taken. The crew was personable and seemed genuinely nice."
Cons: "Why send an email asking me how my flight was to Atlanta when the flight was cancelled after I got to the airport. I was looking forward to taking a much needed and well deserved break. I receive an email during my travel to the airport that the flight was delayed, then another email three minutes later saying that it's back on schedule, and then an employee tells everyone once we got in line that the flight was cancelled. Now I'm hearing about all the hidden fees for baggage, seats etc. Folks, don't even waste your time booking a flight wih Spirit. The saying goes, "You get what you pay for". You can get a refund, but you can't get back time. SMH"
Pros: "The cheap cost of the flight"
Cons: "I think Kayak should do a better job of providing information about the airlines they represent. While my flight was only 80 dollars, I ended up spending 100+ dollars extra to carry on my suit. This was my first time flying with Spirit, and if I knew that these extra charges would apply, I would have packed differently. As a student, I do not have any disposable income; I found it very misleading that the price to "fly" and the price to buy a ticket were very different. 80 dollar flight vs. additional 110 dollars to get from point A to point B."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant."
Cons: "Unfair and deceptive trade practice: I bought my airline ticket from a third party (Kayak.com), so it wasn’t until I went on the Spirit Airline website to do the online check-in that I saw that I would have to pay to bring on a carry on bag. When I called Spirit Airlines customer service, they kept stating that I had to pay to bring on a carry on bag because I had only paid for the ticket to ride on the plane. However, the plane ticket was only about $40 less that the next lowest ticket price and it was going to cost me $90 to carry a bag on both flights. Unacceptable! Overcrowded flights: The seats are closer together on Spirit flights than I’ve seen on any other airline, and I travel often. Matter of fact, the seats are so close together that they don’t even recline…there’s NO room to recline! Since I couldn’t recline, when I fell asleep my head kept rolling forward and waking me up. This happened on the departing and returning flight. It was awful. No electronic tickets: I’ve been using electronic tickets to travel for awhile now, so I automatically created a screenshot of the ticket for the Spirit flights. It wasn’t until I made it through security check line that the agent told me I had to got to the Spirit Airline counter and get a printed ticket. Only Spirit Airlines and possibly one other airline don’t allow electronic tickets. It’s a simple thing to provide to Spirit Airline customers to make the flying process easier, but Spirit Airlines doesn’t provide them. You pay for EVERYTHING: Spirit airlines doesn’t allow customers to bring on a free carry on, they charge for all seats selected, sodas are only available for a fee, and they even charge if you go to the counter to speak with an agent. It’s preposterous! BOTTOM LINE: Spirit Airlines makes it seem as though they are saving customers money by making them pay for only the things they use, but it’s just not so. Spirit Airlines nickel and dime customers and end up making a lot of in the end. They know charging for carry on items will deter people from bringing luggage onto the plane; therefore, they actually save money because the plane is lighter and uses less fuel. They say that the ticket price is so much cheaper than other airlines, but when you figure in the cost of carry on baggage, price for seats that provide the same leg room as other airlines as part of the original ticket price, and money customers have to pay if they need agent assistance, it’s a sham. I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The carry on bag rule is a rip off. I bought a carry on that fit in the box and only the handle was hanging out and I was told I had to pay extra after already checking in. This is clearly a scam system. The price went from 35 to 55 because i didnt think my bag had to be checked in. The last few flight Ive taken have been delayed for no obvious reasoning. This really cuts in to the arrangements for pick up. If the weather isnt bad or there was no threat of human life my flight should be on time to depart and arrive. You guys dont accept late passengers so why should we accept late flights. I paid over 400 dollars to make it home for Christmas. I had a flight change that cost me half the price of my ticket and it was done much in advance so there was time to fill the seat. The overall customer appreciation here sucks and I will never fly this lousy airline again."
Pros: "I had heard all bad things about Spirit airlines. I heard that Spirit airlines charges you for carry on luggage and have small uncomfortable seats. I thought to myself, that it couldn't be that bad and it was all true! Fortunately I packed light and didn't have to pay for my carry on luggage but the attendant confirmed that there is a charge for carry on luggage and that it can be up to $100 for a small bag! The seats were so small and t felt as if I was sitting on a milk crate with a thin cushion. If I can help it, I won't ever use this airline again."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and this airline charges you for every single little thing. Would rather pay a few extra dollars to fly with another airline."
Cons: "They charge way too much for carry on bags. It's less to check a bag, but I don't recommend it. I was on a two hour flight with no layovers and the front of my suitcase was badly damaged. It looked like they were dragging it on the pavement. The seats aren't very comfortable and don't recline. This airline is always trying to sell you something. From the ads on the overhead storage bins to the pilot telling you about the exciting credit card offer. I don't plan on ever flying with this airline again."
