Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was good and the seat was ok"
Cons: "More Movies"
Pros: "Comfort and food"
Cons: "The delays before entering the airplane so that we aren’t stuck"
Cons: "There were not enough agents to help with the kiosks and of course there were problems with the kiosks."
Pros: "I like getting on a plane with just a carry on. I usually like the flight crew and can always trust jet blue to get me to where I need to be. Plane turbulence isn’t my fancy but I’m glad I’m not ever in the aisle."
Cons: "I don’t like turbulence. I don’t like putting my carry on in the over head bin. There isn’t much I don’t like. I’m just glad I haven’t had any delayed flights."
Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Cons: "Delay on 2nd leg, high price for 1way ticket plus $30 baggage fee. There was no option to pay baggage online in advance for $20-25 as was indicated."
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Leg room. Staff."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
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: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "The fast, efficient and courteous staff made me feel I was flying with well-trained attendants."

Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."
Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"

Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."

Pros: "Crew was nice, overall flight was fine."
Cons: "Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very very large person with bad personal hygiene who spilled over into the middle seat. We had the window seat and middle seat -- well, half of the middle seat -- so, the entire flight we were both leaning uncomfortably to one side. A perfectly nice person, who really ought to purchase an extra seat (I'm not clear on JetBlue's policy regarding people who don't fit in a single seat). We had a hot and smelly journey to say the least."

Cons: "Everyone was very friendly and we arrived early to Boston"
Pros: "comfortable flight, on time, pleasant crew and I was impressed with how a woman with a puppy was treated. I had a terrible experience when I went from CA to MI about 6 years ago on another airline. ( I was bringing my puppy back with me). I'm sorry I didn't complain about it."
Cons: "the coffee was very bad .A decent cup of coffee can make someone's day start on the right footing."
Cons: "they put my luggage on a different flight that is not arriving for 2 more days now i have to miss my appointment at the blue lagoon, i have literally been up for 24 hours to get here & now i have no clean clothes to change into and no bathing suit for my appointment at the blue lagoon that i booked in APRIL this is SO NOT COOL i came here to see this country & spend money here but now i will be heading straight home the second i do get MY luggage, also the flight attendants were very rude"

Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Cons: "Crowded seatibg"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."
Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Cons: "I flew a dog in baggage on the JFK to SJU flight. It took almost a hour to receive her in San Juan and then the crate was cracked. I am wondering what happened to my dog if it was jarred so much to crack the plastic crate. Five days and still nothing from Delta on the clsim."
Pros: "It was a really good experience. The crew was kind, friendly and happy. The entertainment was amazing. It was my first time in Delta but no the last one."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Cons: "We needed to get off the plane bc of a fuel spill, otherwise was fine."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Plane was late. But I'm happy overall. Glad you got me home safe n sound."
Pros: "New 737 are more spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Menu according to pamphlet was not available"
Pros: "Value in general, from price to service. You can't beat that"
Cons: "Headphone connection didn't work so I couldn't hear the movie playing."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Cons: "I travelled from usa to canada on 7 nov and after 2 hours waiting in airport they informed us that due to some issue Delta can not deliver our bagagges also one of Delta airport's staff behaved very badly (his name was Manny) , helpless and rude.I missed an important dinner meeting because of not having any suitable dress. I have many friends and family who lives in canada and usa but by facing this bad behaviour and problems never ever recomnd your airline to any of them."
Cons: "The climate control didn't work properly the whole flight. We sat on the tarmac for about 30 minutes after boarding. We sat in the plane for about 15 minutes after landing and the whole time the air wasn't working. Couple that with the fact that I was seated in the row in front of the emergency exit which actually has less room than a normal seat and it made for a miserable flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and on time"
Cons: "The people at the help desk of Delta at Detroit, like the ones at JFK, were not helpful, bordering on being rude. They did not give essential info. E.g., I had to ask if a shuttle to and from the airport-hotel was provided and where it was located, if food/meals were provided. the agent seemed annoyed that I had questions and that I asked for a meal voucher."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats, super uncomfortable seats that almost put me in tears. No cold air, only warm air. Food served was expired in may of 2015. They only served beverages with dinner and never again in 8 hours of flying. Bathrooms had urine and toilet paper all over them. They were absolutely disgusting. I have been in subway bathrooms that were cleaner. This was the first time flying Delta and it will be the last time."
Cons: "Plane left an hour late,made big problems for people picking me up"
Pros: "Crew did a nice job, very friendly."
Cons: "Wish you could have at least music during short flights. Don't know why you can't. It would take my mind off being shoved in a seat that I'm too tall for. I don't pack my own music because I try to travel as light as possible."
Pros: "The crew were very professional"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Another passenger (P1) appeared to have issues with having a window seat (perhaps he felt claustrophobic) and had asked the flight attendant if he could help him find an aisle seat. The attendant kindly asked around and unfortunately no one offered their seat. Once all passengers had boarded the plane, the row in front P1's seat had an empty middle seat. The attendant kindly asked the passenger that was sitting next to P1 to move to the seat in that row so that P1 had extra space. It was great to see how attentive and accommodating the attendant was to P1's concerns/needs. Great customer service from him and the rest of the crew staff."
Pros: "The flight attendant was amiable enough and completed her duties with a smile despite turbulence."
Cons: "The only thing more disgusting than this plane was the stench of Wendy's fast food-which nearly half the passengers thought appropriate to bring onboard despite being in enclosed space with others. After the door was closed we were asked to sit at the gate while maintenance cleared an error code... we were stuck there, in a hot metal tube, festering in the fetor of cooked animal carcass. Isn't there some sort of air filter for this?"
Pros: "The entire crew!!! Love that they offer drinks and snacks for free!!!"
Cons: "I loved everything about the flight!!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating. The channels for TV and movies were quite extensive and provided many options."
Cons: "However, the seating provided little leg room and boarding was like the hunger games - super disorganized"
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."
Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."
Pros: "Accommodation to any concerns"
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "Disgusting attitude from the flight attendant. She laughed at me when i told her i was transgender"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Pros: "It was successful."
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"
Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."
Cons: "American has never been reliable, and this time was no exception. 3 hour delay and they put me in a hotel 20mins away. Bobby was helpful though at getting me a new flight, but should have given more in food vouchers"
Pros: "Staff was prompt, pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Delays due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Front row seats are excellent..."
Cons: "No cons"
Cons: "I wasn’t sent an email or text letting me know the flight was delayed 3 HOURS!! I was traveling from Northern Michigan and would’ve changed my travel to Detroit had I known. I had to spend time waiting in the airport."
Pros: "Liked the leather seats. Clean."
Cons: "Aisle too narrow. Food prices for simple items very high.."
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Great job by all!"
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable. The kids behind us banged their tray tables on the backs of our chairs for the whole flight, sick people couching non stop, nothing the airline did wrong just not the best overall experience"
Pros: "I did not like anything. It was my worst experience ever and i lost the flight due to their lack of responsibility."
Cons: "They gave me the wrong ticket. They did not call the my name as TSA created a huge line and a lot of costumers lost their flights. When i finally entered the terminal and i went to the gate, the plane had left ahead of time, therefore i missed my flight and i had to pay a different flight with a different airline because i had to be in Manhattan, NY during the morning hours. The people at the gate did not give me a alternative even after i told them my urgency. They said you can wait here until 4 pm or take the morning flight tomorrow. This was very wrong and i want my money back."
Cons: "Children (3 within the age of 8-12)unattended left to pull on and kick the seat in front of them, loud arguing that was never addressed. My hair was pulled several times when they would grab the top of the seat to stand up or just harassing each other. I also witnessed them on cell phones that were not in airplane mode and never once did their parent reprimand them for their behavior. I had to do this from the seat in front of them. When the flight landed the entire family talked loudly about pushing their way off the plane to get to another flight, little did they know others had connecting flights to reach as well. Poor behavior & left to make others have a worse flight"
Cons: "They charged us an arm and a leg for our carry on!"
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Friendly passengers!"
Cons: "Spirit is different. I wasnt aware what i was booking. Now i know: 52 bucks for a checked bag! Food and drinks are extra- even water! No movies Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "They delayed the flight on purpose such that they would not have to rebook on other airlines. As soon as the last flight to the destination left on another airline, they cancelled the flight and refused to rebook on any other airline. I got rebooked 2 days later. The cancellation was due to a lack of a crew."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Flight on-time"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence with take-off and landing. It was a stressful."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I live 2 hours from the airport. I was alerted that my flight was delayed by 3 hours. I checked in online, printed boarding passes, and made alternate plans to get to the airport based on this information. When I checked updates before I left for airport, I found that the flight had been rescheduled close to the original time. I then did not have enough time to get the airport to make my flight. I missed a funeral because of this. The 19 emails I received (in order): #1 Delayed departure, #2 Delayed departure, #3 Delayed departure, #4 Delayed departure, #5 Gate update, #6 Gate update, #7 Gate update, #8 Gate update, #9 Back on time, #10 Back on time, #11 Delayed departure, #12 Delayed departure, #13 Gate update, #14 Gate update, #15 Delayed departure, #16 Delayed departure, #17 Departure,"
Pros: "Nothing to be honest. Spirit was an extremely awful airline. They cancelled our flight after several delays because the pilots didn't show up. If you tried to call in, you would wait two hours with customer service and just get transferred again. While waiting in line and on hold with customer service, they would not give us a flight until the next day. We were supposed to be in Las Vegas at 12:00 pm Thursday and they offered us a flight on Friday at 7:00 pm stating this is the best they could do. We had to book with Delta on the red eye that night to get to Las Vegas. Spirit would not compensate us and we our out $560, plus all of the events we booked Thursday."

Cons: "They canceled the flight . I think that fact is explanatory per se"
Cons: "Getting dinging for bags at the gate, $50 a bag each way?!? Wasn't explicit ok Kayaks website and very financially cumbersome. Not cool."
Cons: "Double booking of seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed I missed my next flight and had to sit at the airport for 14 hrs"
Cons: "First, when I booked I was not given option to pay for baggage or choose seats, meaning I wasn't able to use the cheapest option. I had to spend at least 2 hours on the phone with a Spirit agent to get to pay for my bags before arriving at the airport at all - I wasn't able to do it online. On day of flight: the first leg was delayed. When we got to layover our final flight had been cancelled with no reason given. We were booked on another flight 8 hours later which meant we got in late enough that I had to miss another day of work. The Spirit agent at the gate in Las Vegas was also extremely rude. I also didn't get any phone or email updates."
Pros: "I was easily able to upgrade my seat prior to flight."
Cons: "They charge for a carry on bag, charge more for checked luggage than any other airlines, charge you if your bag is over 40 lbs (not 50 lbs like all other airlines), they don't provide any complimentary snacks/drinks on plane. Flight attendants all had a flat affect and looked liked they hated their job on both my flights. On departure flight it took over 30 mins to get luggage to the carousel. Will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Quick boarding. No frills airline. Want a cheap seat and dont care about other things like reclining chairs then this is the airline for you. Everything besides a small personal backpack costs money. Want to bring your normal carry-on thats $55. Want food or drink thatll cost extra. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing bad service all the way"
Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"
Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"
Cons: "Crew food boarding check in employ not profesional"
Cons: "Dirty seat pocket. Plane is just dirty. Too cramped for a six foot man like myself."
Pros: "flight on time , crew ok , plane ok"
Cons: "the only thing to upset me was the robbery of luggage fee ...for a small cabin size I paid 55$ and that took all my appetite to use your airline again...why should I fly with you and pay more with game words...declared price 130$ and 55$ for 1 small cabin bag...thanks I won't have that experience again for sure"
Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Flight was on-time, boarding was early."
Cons: "Tiny seats - ok since I am short but would be rough for a tall person"
Pros: "Great customer service from Airport Personnel"
Cons: "Luggage fees, extremely uncomfortable seats, In flight fees and no interest in assisting with basic needs as simple as water"
Pros: "How easy it is and fast to get to the big apple from Detroit."
Cons: "The craziness of La Guardia"
Pros: "The plane was clean."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Lack of delay update posted on airport flight tv monitors. Spirit employees at check-in counter were not pleasant or too helpful. Would not help with simple requests, such as, throwing baggage claim slip away. Website confusing to check bag."
Cons: "Was supposed to arrive in New York Monday evening. My flight was cancelled once I got to Detroit because of weather over New York. The staff was blatantly rude and unhelpful. They also told me I wouldn't be able to get another flight to New York until the following Thursday. They didnt offered any vouchers for food or hotel. I eventually I had to rent a van with four strangers and drive 11 hours at 11:45 pm to avoid paying what would have easily been a thousand dollars in hotel fares and food for 3 days. They also told me they would refund part of my flight cost when I was in like for two hours, then denied saying that on the phone later that day."
Cons: "Teo hours late!!"
Pros: "No logical way to solve the overbooking problem"
Cons: "It was so cold on the flight, that I couldn't even just relax and enjoy it. I was so uncomfortable the entire time because it was freezing..."
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived on time. he price was reasonable for no frills. Will travel with Spirit in future."
Pros: "Friendly stewardess"
Cons: "The chairs are low budget seats cushions are thin with and the leg room is limited which makes the ride very uncomfortable. I travel with various airlines and this was my 1st time traveling with spirit. This is by far my most uncomfortable plane ride with any airline. The cost for all beverages Is another concern. It is practically a potential health concern for a customer flying 2 hours or more to not have at least water provided for free. The credit card only for beverage payment also is a inconvenience for a small purchase that could easily be settle with cash. In closing, I feel this company is a prime example of producing poor service when the airline try to cut cost then capitalize on every single accommodation at the complete expense and inconvenience of the customers."
Pros: "Everything people say about Spirit is true... you get what you pay for...and then more payments on top of that...."
Pros: "Nothing, prices were not even that cheap and after bag fees and other hidden fees it was a complete scam"
Cons: "Everything. Seats don't recline. No water. Bad staff. Terrible pricing strategy"
Pros: "Extremely low price and waived baggage fees for active duty military made our first Spirit flight wonderful. Attendants were friendly once on board."
Cons: "Downfalls were limited legroom, the baggage check line at DTW took over an hour and many kiosks were broken and could not print boarding passes."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."
Pros: "The experience was pleasant. Nothing to complain about. The crew was polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The cost for things such as pop or snacks was a little high."
Cons: "Had no seat assignments until last minute. They were all confused about seating the last few people. Actually on the plane trying to find seats for two people. Spirit is the worst airlines"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant to interact with. Best part of the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Soda and water was not complimentary which is kind of a joke that a major airline can't even provide that service. Bag fees are outrageous."
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "no water without paying"
Cons: "It was not clearly conveyed when purchasing the ticket that baggage fees were not included in the base price. Thus, we not only had to pay to check 2 bags and 2 carry-ons for 170$, we also had to pay an extra 100$ because our checked bags were "overweight" at 50lbs (they only accept 40lbs bags) - and this was only ONE WAY. We will have to pay that $270 on our return flight as well. Ultimately our baggage fees cost us 4X more than our two ticket fares combined! Now I wouldn't call that a "bargain" by any means - we could have gotten two first-class tickets on delta for the total amount we ended up paying. We will never fly spirit again and will ultimately think twice when booking through kayak. What a bummer."
Pros: "It was a good flight except there isn't much leg room on your planes and it would be nice to recline a little. Also, the charge for carry-ons is excessive and makes other airlines more appealing."
Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."
