Pros: "This time NOTHING"
Cons: "Plane seats weren’t cleaned well. I wiped my chair, tray, window and wipe was all grey/brown dirty. Yuck! Very disappointing jetBlue. You used to be my favorite but no more. 2.5 hour of delay to pick someone special to board the plane. Ridiculous! 2.5 hour of delay and excuse was navigation not working you have to pick paperwork however picking paperwork took 1.5 hour? You think people will believe this while you get this special person to just walk in and board the plane on the (exit) seats 4 rows had been kept empty just for him. I demand my money back. Poor poor poor service JetBlue"

Cons: "Too many people on flight during Covid"

Pros: "Very comfy seating. Polite flight crew."
Cons: "A cookie before landing I feel is a bit underwhelming. I preferred the warm bagel with cream cheese. Especially if you have to run off straight to work after landing. So maybe it sounds like a nit pick. But it would be nice to maybe have a choice of a cookie or bagel? Just a thought."

Pros: "Great crew. Z and Antonio were great!"
Cons: "The breakfast meal."

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were crumbs on my seat when I got there. The plane could not have been cleaned."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Food options & Entertainment"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5hrs plus 1hr on tarmac. Crew was visibly agitated and annoyed at their jobs. JetBlue didn’t not apologize for the 3.5hr delay once. I know their might weather and other problems but no one actually bother to explain why in total the flight was delayed by 3.5hrs. No one."

Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times. We had to cancel other reservations and wasted a day traveling instead of a quick 4 hr plane ride."

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "Communication about the delay Snacks has no variety. All too salty."

Pros: "Nothing! The flight was delayed until 10:34pm and still we did not board the plane at that time. Then when we finally board the plane a crew member Dan told me my luggage was to big which it was not, and when we landed in Puerto Rico I had to wait so long to get my luggage from the carousel."

Pros: "My flight was on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was fun and courteous"
Cons: "Bumpy"

Pros: "Friendly staff, informed during wait on runwayabout when /why take off delayed, quick exit."

Cons: "The screen in my seat didnt work, my flight was delayed almost 2 hours and the information at the gate was very confusing. They kept announcing the wrong flight number to the wrong gate."

Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:30pm. After 4 delays not due to weather we departed at 12:15am and arrived at 3am. Did not get home until 5am. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Everything was perfect for me I will definitely fly with JetBlue again and recommend JetBlue to all my friends and family and more"

Pros: "The flight took off on time and maybe even early and was early arriving even though it had to divert a little to avoid the hurricane. Everything seemed to run more efficiently because more extraordinary measures were being taken to keep flights running and on time. I was impressed."

Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"

Cons: "TV didn’t work on our row but without asking they offered $15 credit per seat"

Pros: "I enjoy flying jetblue, I am usually comfortable and i is a pleasant experience. The last two times I have flown, the flight has been delayed by at least an hour and a half and there has been something wrong with the sound to the movies. This flight my movie was staticky and had to jiggle my headphones for it to work although sometimes it still happened. My seat this last flight also was broken and I was unable to put my seat back which caused some back discomfort."
Cons: "I would choose jetblue again because of the other wonderful experiences I have had with you. The staff are usually very professional and courteous and the comfort is usually better than anyone else. Thanks."

Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"

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: "Due to weather we physically couldn't get to the airport on time. I am sooo glad you could get us on the next flight, and with seats together! NIIIICE!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."

Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."

Pros: "Crew couldn't be nicer. A pleasant experience. Thank you."

Pros: "Service at the door to print out our baggage tix & boarding tic. Very efficient & helpful. Cordial staff at departing desk & in the air. Left on time & smooth landing."
Cons: "I had to use Ladies’ room soon after take off & they wouldn’t let me get up for 20 min. More. I would have gotten up at my own risk instead of waiting for no- seatbelt sign!!"

Pros: "The boarding was very quick and easy, the crew were very pleasant and helpful, and I felt safe the entire flight. We arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "I wish there was more snack selection and a little more room in the sides (this I understand can’t be helped, but that is just my opinion). Other forms of entertainment, such as magazines or newspapers, even if outdated, would be a nice alternative for those who do not wish to purchase headphones."

Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."

Pros: "gate staff were accomodating, flight landed on time."
Cons: "Crew were rude and intimidating to a family with kids, including calling my wife a liar in front of them! Unconscionable. I thought JetBlue advertises unlimited snacks, but my daughter was told 'you've had enough' when she went for seconds. Our TV sets didn't work. Our baby spilled some chips and as the flight attendant passed he looked at us and said loudly 'I wonder who made this awful mess'."

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and quickly"

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Not enough wheel chairs, barely made flight, seating was more cramped than usual."

Cons: "Delays, just got married and have to make a flight to costs Rica for honeymoon. Currently sitting on mco runway, still for 20 min without explanation. Cutting it close to make our flight to Costa Rica."

Cons: "my entertainment screen was messed up, no sirius xm and video programs blacked out, plus brightness control graphic would not go off screen. Flight was late, again. Piece of used chewing gum was stuck under armrest handle."

Pros: "glad that there was small drink and snack offered despite such a short flight. i hadn't eaten dinner so was glad to have something in my stomache. especially travelling on a late night flight arriving in city i wasn't familar."
Cons: "my seat was dirty with snack crumbs from previous passenger. I didn't have anything on me to brush off so had to use my own hand to do it. that was a bit disgusting."

"I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received."

"Boarding was on time (if not a little early). The flight was unfortunately not properly catered for snack boxes in main cabin. This is likely a one off instance, but it’s a long flight for no food options other than pretzels and Biscoffs. Service was attentive and friendly. This particular flight offered Delta’s DeltaOne lay flat first class seats. Would highly recommend. Flight left on time and arrived early!"

"No seat assignment. Was put in the absolute last seat in the plane. Flight was delayed because of an electrical issue which also broke the AC until we were taxi-ing. It was hot."

"It would have been nice to be served some water"

"Seats were narrow and uncomfortable ( business ) and there was only one toilet for both business and premier…. The one up front was blocked as it was solely for the crew …. One always had to wait in line with 3/4 people in front of you ..at minimum….. while you waited , the crew made it clear that you were in their way …. Fair enough as we had to stand partially in the galley…"

"1/2 late for no reason"

Pros: "Entertainment on flight."
Cons: "The boarding crew was not helpful and rude. Traveling is stressful enough, not having a boarding crew be able to answer simple questions made the rest of the experience bad"

Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE DO NOT FLY WITH AREOMEXICO!!!"

Cons: "Snacks, and drinks"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio y puntualidad"

Cons: "Bad social distance"

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "Socially distancing worked well on the plane because the middle seats are not occupied, snacks are bagged and the head flight attendant was funny and gave an inspirational message on the PSA at the gate and when we landed."

Pros: "live tv, watched the formula one race"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, and the side panel at my feet was broken off and i could see through the floor of the plane"

Pros: "Comfort and service was great."
Cons: "The severe delays was frustrating and not getting enough information about it."

Pros: "surprisingly spacious seats. plane felt brand new. on screen entertainment was great, and relieved to have charging inputs for my device in the seat."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"

Pros: "Comfortable Seating!"
Cons: "Flight delayed Quite a bit."

Pros: "Service by crew. I was flying economy but it was par to business class."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were fantastic. Departed on time, arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Delta One is a bit jaded on this flight."

Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."

Cons: "4 hour delay on take-off and despite that my luggage didn't make it onto the flight."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat in 1st class. Poor quality video screen, too small, too far away, poor sound."

Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "Staff and flight were good"
Cons: "The chicken dinner was mediocre"

Pros: "Michael was super polite and helpful. i Traveled with my young son and he took such good care of us."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Cons: "-"

Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"

Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."

Cons: "When my flight with American Airlines cancelled, I felt so panicked because I needed to be in Florida on Saturday night. But thankfully, lady who works for American Airlines solved my problem on the phone in couple of minutes easily. After that, when we were boarding to the aircraft, there was a cabin attendant lady. She came to us and ask me and my mother if we can talk English.I answered her with yes we can, but she demands to talk with my mother. And English is not her native language, but it doesn't prove that she doesn't know it. She tried to ask questions to her like, "where were you today?" so we couldn't really understand the reason for her to ask those questions in the first place. So we couldn't really say anything. While we were talking about my mother's English, the all aircraft was watching us, and trying to figure out what was going on. After all, she made us to sit there and wait her to replace us with other passengers. We waited the whole aircraft to be seated, then she took us to another seat with my mother. I can understand that it is her job but I'm not sure, if it had to be that much discomfort. We got pretty upset about it and it affects our flight quality. Plus, while cabin crew serving beverages, they didn't really ask us anything. We needed to call them for our order. To be honest, I would never flight with Delta. It was a disappointment."

Pros: "Seating was very nice and a free move was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all. People cannot find their seats and put their luggage in the overhead. Board the plane from the back first"

Pros: "The service and the seats"
Cons: "We spent more time than scheduled waiting to take off"

Pros: "Nothing. My flight got canceled."
Cons: "Delta offered nothing for canceling my flight, rescheduling me on one over 24 hours later with two layovers to Miami. I lost money on hotel reservations and never even made it on my trip. Couldn’t reach delta for over 24 hrs to confirm whether I’d get a refund or not"

Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."

Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."

Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "I called ahead to get a seat assigned. I suffer from minor claustrophobia and the lady at the call center was kind enough to seat me somewhere spacious."
Cons: "Snacks could be better. Although the biscoff cookies are excellent and the crew was on their game making sure we had our snacks. I wish that for a flight as long as NY to MIA, they would offer more of a meal."

Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."

Cons: "flight ticket very expensive."

Pros: "Nice service , but flight was delayed , but that's not Delta dakut as it was weather related"
Cons: "Nice sercixe and crew and generous with snacks and water"

Pros: "Service was exceptional, flights were on time and in some case, early, and communication throughout was clear!"

Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."

Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."

"I didn’t like that they keep changing stuff of the trip, like the flight it self from Guayaquil to Nyc i did a stupid scale to chicago, and one dat before my return trip they change the bag polite"

Cons: "With so many empty seats on the front. They decided to crunch everyone in the back without the minimal distance requested for social distancing. Very disappointed. Social distance is not practiced at AA as in Delta. Very sad. Will remember that next time I book a flight."

Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."

Cons: "We need food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Could not checking or do anything from the app unlike others"

Pros: "Me rompieron el equipaje"

Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"

Cons: "Departed 1 hour late."

Pros: "The seat was a caca"

Pros: "everything."
Cons: "nothing."

Cons: "Pagar una maleta pequeña mortifica"

Cons: "That’s ok"

Pros: "Good overall."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The cleanliness and the seat arrangements"
Cons: "Snacks could have been given & Small bottled water."

Cons: "Crowded and hot just like Miami"

Pros: "First of I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Parnel at JFK airport. He was such a big help. And his customer service was excellent."

Cons: "Passenger that sat next to me occupied part of my seat."

Cons: "Flying is no thrill now."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the cabin in First Class was clean"
Cons: "I’m a big guy so using the tray table to eat was very uncomfortable and almost didn’t work at all"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I would have like to leave on time."

Cons: "No entertainment system, tight seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. Flight delayed for several hours. Customer service personnel not helpful in changing flights"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Dunno"

Pros: "Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Leg room, especially for a 6’3 person in the middle seat."

Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"

Pros: "Calm no crowd organized and perfect"
Cons: "Umm"

Cons: "My transfer was supposed to be from JFK, but when I arrived a staff told me to take a taxi and go to LaGardia airport. Nobody apologized neither explained why I had to go there. Instead from leaving New York at 5.25 pm the flight was delayed to 8.30 pm. Horrible flight with angry employees"

Cons: "They left my bags behind and told me they weren’t even checked in Worst customer service ever"

Cons: "The seats were small and I’m 5’3"

Pros: "Why do I get asked 3x times if I am ready able to assist with a verbal yes. I get asked at baggage check in, again when I board by gate agent, and then again by flight crew. Is this FAA regulations to ask 3 Times?"
Cons: "Ask me 1 time"

Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."

Pros: "Fast check in"
Cons: "Unfriendly airhostesses, I asked fir a blanket as it was freezing but refused to bring me one"

Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."

Pros: "The pilot and co-pilot took the time to answer my question about turbulence. They were very friendly. I appreciated that."
Cons: "There is insufficient legroom in coach, especially when the passenger in front of me reclines."

Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."

Pros: "Almost everything. Only the food was lacking. I like their new planes. The outlet at the seat in coach. The magazine options at the seat as well. I did not look at the entertainment so I will not rate that. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Just the food options. Ginger snaps was what was served for food and a beverage. I suppose this is what obtains on most airlines these days but can't I hope for something more like maybe a sandwich? AA has the opportunity to set themselves apart in this area."

Pros: "We barely made our connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed nearly an hour due to crew not showing up on time. Crew blocked aisle as passengers were boarding. Crew did not assist people who needed to make connecting flights by keeping other passengers from blocking the aisle after landing.. Airline did not seem to care about all the chaos caused by being so late."

Pros: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."

Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"

Pros: "I have had the most uncomfortable seat ever. It felt like there was a huge ball under my seat."

Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."

Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"

Pros: "Free upgrade to domestic first class was awesome."
Cons: "Food was meh."

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "No wifi but there were old style TVs throughout the cabin. It was an old plane"

Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."

Pros: "Their customer service sucks."
Cons: "Their customer service sucks."

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "I’ll fly United anytime"

Pros: "Well I like the that I was allowed to pre board because I had a 1 year old with me."
Cons: "My one year old was a lap baby. There was virtually no space between the front seat and mine. This made flying very uncomfortable for both me and my daughter."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Delayed by an hour and spent most of it taxiing."

Pros: "When it finally took off the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, then we were told we were waiting on catering. Then it became a weather issue. Then we boarded. Weather got worse so they took us off. The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay. We definitely missed our connection and they rebooked it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Telling the truth"

Cons: "Over 2 hours delayed for no notable reason"

Pros: "Good plane, seats are OK even though do not recline that much"
Cons: "Crew in the airport and in the plane not friendly, very long delay (3h) and not even a drink or something to eat whilst waiting, no excuse for 3h delay from crew when boarding/leaving ..."

Pros: "United has done a lot to update and modernize their terminals. Easy access to food, charging outlets, comfortable seating, and an open atmosphere made my layover quite pleasant."

Cons: "Delayyyyyyyyyed"

Pros: "Nice quick flight staff great and very helpful!"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t free"

Pros: "Very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours, also the personal at Newark airport was a little bit harsh and not very helpful, I do not care about any compensation, nevertheless the personal has to treat better to the clients"

Cons: "I have a carry on bag. & when I was boarding the bag was checked because there wasn’t enough overhead room. I was in back of plane & there was plenty of room. I think you should be more careful about space deciditions. I bought specific luggage so I would’ve to check it!!!"

Cons: "Flight delay ,almost two hours. Have a chance to change to another flight with empty seats , not alowed"

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "Comfortable and on time!"
Cons: "Plane was equipped with Direct TV but the TVs were not powered on and that was very disappointing."

Pros: "Kiosk help at Newark very annoyed to be helping me"

Pros: "I guess the flight was ok. The pilot knew where he was going"
Cons: "It can't be true that they have not even a small blanket for someone who kindly ask and then when the flight is over you see them every where and unopened in first class. Pretzels,... Seriously..???. These airlines are n need of a real policy that lets them know it is money we are expending when we take a flight. And taking the carry-on bag. AFTER YOU PAID TO HABE IT WITH YOU?? Unacceptable. And not seating people together after you call and re call and talk to 3 different persons... The last one just says: I will see what can be done and then ignores you... Not NICE. Please remember that many airlines have come and go. Those are some of the reasons."

Pros: "The crew was very swift in resolving the issue and getting us on another aircraft."
Cons: "Hated that we had to unboard for something as simple as radio/printer connection. I had other arrangements at the time I was supposed to land."

Cons: "The lady at the counter for checking the bags at newark was not rude but not very friendly. She could have done better if she was not that serious. Besides that everything was good."

Pros: "I didnt care for anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. There were no chargers at any seat in Coach."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for man hours. First Class cabin was a disgrace - old seats, no padding, plane appeared dirty."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."

Cons: "Stuck on the runway for 25 min. And then after took another 20 minutes because they could not open the door to get into the airport from the plane to deplane. The staff was rude when boarding"

Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."

Cons: "For an international flight, there should be more amenities like charger etc."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hours because of the crew. Wouldn't it make sense that if the flight was scheduled to depart at a certain time, 5 minutes before that, still no crew, let the passengers know then? No. Not if you're United. They told us to wait 20 minutes, then after 30 minutes told us about the delay and the New departure time. But when that time arrived, still no Captain. Finally, after another 15 minutes, we're on the way. Except not quite. Now, they can't get the weight and logistics of the flight worked out. C'mon United, get it together!!"

Pros: "Safe Flight Awesome Trip in & out"
Cons: "No sunshine"

Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"

Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"

Pros: "That we arrived alive."
Cons: "We weren't allowed to put our carryons in the overhead. We were forced to put them under the seat in front of us because the plane was full. This left no place for our feet or stretching our legs. The seats were cramped so closely together, our knees touched the seat pocket in front of us. When putting down the tray table, it pressed against our stomachs. The landing was the worst and scariest one I've experienced in over 40 yrs of frequent flying. We hit so fast and hard that the plane teetered from one wheel to the other and fish tailed so hard that people's necks were hurt. If possible, I'll never fly United again."

Pros: "The flight was fast."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 10 hours for no real reasoning and nobody was compensated for anything."

Pros: "Staff on board was great"
Cons: "I brought a carry on and had to check it because I was in group. I was not happy. It took 25 minutes for the first piece of luggage to arrive and of course our bags. Last on the plane took a while."

Cons: "Didn't like the fact that you had to pay to watch movies"

Cons: "What ever happened to leg room? And I know that real food is a thing of the past on airplanes, but at least Jet Blue provides snacks that occupy more than one mouthful"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding at the gate"
Cons: "Tight seats. Slow service on the flight."

Pros: "Nothing.was a terrible flight"
Cons: "Everything , delays , poor food , was horrible"

Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"

Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "That they took my take in luggage & had me put it aside to out in the belly of the plane. I had my laptop & iPad in there. It happened so fast I didn't think to take them out. I was planning to do some work on the plane but couldn't since u took my laptop. Also, they changed the gate and no one told us. We were lucky we asked a question to find out the gate had been changed."

Cons: "I upgrade to premium economy. This gave me a seat with legroom -but one that did NOT RECLINE ... on a night flight. I am very unhappy. It was not made clear when I upgraded (must have been very small print). I feel ripped off"

Pros: "Left right on time."

Pros: "Everything !"

Pros: "United wifi app allows you to watch some film and tv on demand, if you've downloaded the app in advance. Staff nice."
Cons: "Seatback screen the size of an original iPhone, possibly smaller - and no on-demand content to be viewed on it, the movies play when they play. Most TV series available on the app have only one episode. Overhead baggage bins are TINY. Most normal carry-ons won't fit at all in central bins, and some not in side ones either. Expect a fight over them if flight is busy. Large IFE box under every window seat in economy."

Pros: "I am Brenda Crooks, Zachary's mom. I am the one that actually took the trip. I went to Connecticut to see my son, Samuel, get his white coat for medical school. I will never forget my experience in Newark, New Jersey. I met a wonderful woman named Yevette who checked in my luggage. She is to be commended on going above and beyond the call of duty. I don't know her last name. She knew I was very upset because I was leaving my 22 year old baby in Connecticut. She sympathized and comforted me. She put her arms around me and assured me that everything was going to be alright. She is a wonderful woman with a big heart. She is the true meaning of a lady. I will never forget her and thank her so very much for being so gracious and kind to me."

Cons: "I ended up changing my flight in Newark airport to Fort Lauderdale that landed earlier that the one they gave me up in Scraton.."

Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."

Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"

Pros: "The loading was taking along time"
Cons: "More organized"

Cons: "Me robaron el dinero"

Pros: "Was comfortable the sits it cut be better, the crew was amazing."
Cons: "Free snacks and coffe!!!!"

Pros: "Crew, seat contable and price was great"

Cons: "Boarding officers need to smile a lot more"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airlines cancelled the flight an hour before. Then only offered a refund or a flight 24hrs later."

Cons: "Everything seemed to go well until my daughter had to go to the bathroom, we were sitting in the front area but they blocked it cause the pilot was in the bathroom. Which was fine, but a few minutes past and still nothing the she said you can go to the back so i got up and she yelled maam “ you need to sit down” and then she proceeded to speak in Spanish as i didnt understand english. So I explained firmly that I u derstood her but she just told us to go the back and then to sit so which one is it."

Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."

Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "The whole row behind me was super loud during most of the flight yet the crew didn’t say anything. At one point they started ordering alcohol and chilling like they were in a bbq. One of them standing and chilling with her drink. Laughing super loud, the guy behind me kicking my seat again and again cause spirit has no space and of course there wasn’t a choice to be moved cause in the middle of a pandemic the flight was packed!"

Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable except the price, but JetBlue it ten times better for only a tiny bit more."
Cons: "The cabin was out of control. People were running around, cursing, not wearing masks. The crew did nothing about it. The seats were wildly uncomfortable. There was no food, no entertainment, no comfort. I will not be flying Spirit again unless they're my only option."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Flight delayed one hour. Second time in one day. Seats uncomfortable. Flight was completely booked. No consideration for Covid. Should keep middle seats open."

Pros: "Good services"
Cons: "Free snacks"

Cons: "During this pandemic they could have just refunded out money but instead they have, thru Kayak, just got it all confusing. Not sure where to go to get credit on a flight i dont even want to book but from what i heard is pigeon holed that its use it or lose it. Good Job. Spirit and Kayak. The Spirit of ripping off America."

Pros: "ive been emailing spirit for two weeks now about getting a refund/credit."
Cons: "if they actually responded."

Pros: "I did not receive credit from Spirit Airlines for the reason of Covid-19"

Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."

Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."

Cons: "The tv and free food"

Pros: "I like to reach final destination"
Cons: "Awful service, unless you purchase ,not even bottle water available. You probably would find this kind of service In remote areas of the world. Seats are so small that kids only would fit. Brand new plane ,but design to accommodate minimum, comfort, not for Adult. Shows disrespect passengers."

Pros: "The modern planes and on time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Unfriendly check-in staff, unpleasant crew members and pokey seats. Having to pay for water on a 3.5 hour flight took cheapness to a new low. My first experience with Spirit Airlines will probably be my last."

Pros: "Crew amazing Seat not comfortable On time"
Cons: "Improve seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was over three hours delayed They charge you for putting a bag in the overhead compartment They charge you for WATER There is no room whatsover in the seats Stewards ignore you Very disorganized"

Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "It was ridiculous that after buy our tickets we had to pay to pick our plane seats... Also, we have to pay 60 dollars to carry on our bags... I Spirit charge you for everything, even chips and Pepsi we had to buy it on the plane..."

Cons: "Confort"

Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."

Pros: "Nothing. How could a flight not give free water? People need to take meds and should be required to pay $5 for bottled at the terminal. Everything is just highway robbery. Some folks don’t even have a credit card or fir that matter the cash."
Cons: "I was totally humiliated at the gate when I was taken off line because I had one extra bag to carry on. I was then charged $65 to then bring it on board an additional $20 to secure a sit since the flight had been over booked. The flight was delayed for the late arrival of on board staff. Most of the passengers were flight crew either connecting."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. The plane was late. Delayed."

Cons: "Spirit isn’t an airline for frequent travelers. The aircraft is always delayed to depart due to beionh last in line after reputable airlines, files the have check in counters in popular airports or located on bottom levels, not accommodating for travelers that missed flights, and last but not least their luggage weight requirements are extremely low compared to all other airlines. The normal requirement is 50lbs and Spirit is 40 so one checked bag is $70. By the time you pay for every single detail you could be on a Delta Airline with complementary Biscotti and water!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Even with the additional padding I bring with myself, the seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Not roomy, on the returning flight the person behind me kicked my chair the entire flight on top of being surrounded by children on the flight there and back. They should at least let you know you're surrounded by crying babies I would have never booked or paid more to not sit around it. I understand people have to travel with kids but it was my only vacation wouldn't fly spirit again. On top of I called spirit airlines to help extend my flight and the guy couldnt/wouldn't help me told me to check online, but their system that day was not cooperating"

Cons: "No snakes."

Cons: "I did not like that you can’t select any seats without a pay."

Pros: "I like the fact that we got there 30mins early"
Cons: "Customer service was awful i stood on like for 20mins while the representatives were laughing and giggling when i asked if i can get assist of help i was told to wait everyone is busy"

Pros: "Plane departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I have flown on a lot of budget airlines, both domestically and internationally, but this was my first time flying with Spirit....and it will be my last. I am used to the a la carte pricing and know how to avoid additional charges, so I wasn't expecting anything different than usual. What I wasn't prepared for were the smallest seats I have ever seen. Granted, I am 6'2", but these seats cannot be anything but pure torture to anyone over 5'9". If you're shorter, maybe it's worth it, but I can't guarantee it. But, if you're 6' or taller, I would recommend you avoid regardless of how much cheaper the flight is; It's not worth it."

Pros: "Didn't die."
Cons: "A passenger vomited prior to take off. She went to the restroom then was taken back to her seat, where she got sick again. The Purser/Senior Atttendant did not handle well in my opinion, by allowing the clearly ill elderly woman who was disoriented and confused back to her seat and in her "freaking out" reaction (her words). After the woman vomited the second time, they had her sit in a different seat up front, spreading the possible pathogens and uncleanliness to more rows. The woman vomited a 3rd time in this new seat. The woman was FINALLY removed from the plane and her former dear mates were moved to the row up front where the woman was sick for the 3rd time. (The crew who came on to clean the "biohazard" used a dirty mop and did not appear to use any bleach solution. The Senior flight attendant said they were going to seal off the bathroom (good idea) bc the elderly woman, according to the Spirit attendants, made a big mess and it was a "biohazard". Cut to later in the flight after a 2 hour delay and then the sick woman- where Spirit attendants allowed many passengers to use this restroom -bar potentially exposing them to pathogens. The Purser was self-confessed overly dramatic about the entire situation. I can't imagine how she would have behaved in an escalated emergency situation."

Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."

Pros: "The crew was great and did their best to make the flight smooth. The plane was a pretty color yellow..."
Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous. If you check your bag, it's $52. If you carry on, it's $57. During the flight, you pay for any beverages or snacks. Also, we purchased our tickets together, obviously to be sat together. On our return flight, we were instructed to purchase seats if we wanted to be together, otherwise there were no assignments. We got charged an additional $40. Overall, we spent an additional $200! We chose this airline for the lower fares, but they get their money back by charging for everything. You pay for everything. I was very dissatisfied and likely to never fly this airline again."

Pros: "The original ticket price was ok but it was barely a positive."
Cons: "The original "cheap" ticket became meaningless when I had to pay 120$ for my bags. Plus pay for water on the flight? The seats don't decline. It is the most uncomfortable airline I've ever flown, and will hopefully never have to fly with spirit air again. The ticket price isn't even that cheap."

Cons: "You cancelled my flight and lied why it was cancelled. Then you lied about what flights were available the next day. I lost a day and a half off my vacation with no compensation. Plus no customer service number."

Pros: "absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "hidden in basement, ripoff on baggage $109 for 1 carry and 1 checked, then remove 5lbs from checked to reduce wt.then delayed 3 hr"

Pros: "Attendants on plane and at gate counter were good in the turmoil"
Cons: "Flight coming and going we're delayed several hours including the first flight of the day.....how does that happen with perfect weather? Suitcase was lost on return trip and after 3 days finally was sent delivered to destination airport for pick up. They would deliver it to home but could not give a specific time, worse then the cable company so just will pick it up directly. Also the customer service folks in the baggage area speak very little English, have no customer skills and And frankly have no understanding of how their processes work. Also with the delay notification to email received over 1000 email notifications... must be a system glitch in their system. Will never use this airline again in life!"

Pros: "Of the five flights it took for me to get to and from Las Vegas, I met one pleasant flight attendant and 2 pleasant ticketing personnel, all other Spirit employees couldn't have cared less."
Cons: "Every single departure was delayed - the shortest delay was one hour others were 3 hrs and 7 hrs and the ripple effects from these delays meant missing connecting flights.. overnight stays at the airport.. missing days of work... I fly a lot, delays are common, but not every single flight in one trip. Most delays are also due to factors beyond the control of the airline. Only one departure delay on this trip fell into this category... Air Force-one delayed the entire airport - understandable. All others were caused by ineptness on the part of Spirit airline staff and poor business practice and airline policy. For example, delayed departure caused many of our flight's passengers to miss a connecting flight. Many of us had checked bags. All of use were booked on the next available flight the next morning. Our bags were not moved onto that flight. This is frustrating but almost understandable, what's not understandable is that the airline staff had no idea what to do about this situation. Multiple staff members said they didn't know what we should do about the bags and suggested talking to other staff members. Eventually we were told to go pick them up ourselves and take them as carry-ons on the next flight (fortunately my bag was small enough to be a carry-on, others were not)... this meant leaving TSA and the comfort of the terminal to go get the bag. Then couldn't get back in through TSA because my ticket still said I had a checked bag, not a carry on. I then had to wait another hour in line to get it changed to say carry-on. Then of course, couldn't get back through TSA into the terminal because my new flight wasn't until the next day so I had to sleep outside the terminal at the baggage carousel. Of course no meal vouchers were given, no hotel stay... just kicked to the curb. This also happened on another return flight - fortunately the delay, which was caused by the pilot not showing up on time, was during the day, so we didn't have to sleep outside.. no meal vouchers were given for this 7 hour delay. All of this and more might have been somewhat acceptable if the flight had actually been cheaper then other flights... Not the case. Although the list price of the ticket was about $30 cheaper then the direct American Airlines flight my co-workers took for the same trip. Their flight included a personal item and a carry-on bag in the price. Spirit allows one personal item and charges $50 - $60 for carry-ons.. $40-$50 for checked bags. After the disaster of given them my suitcase as a checked bag, I decided to go Carry-on on the next flight. Spirit also charges for anything on the flight... even water (water=$3). To top it off.. Spirit airlines has as little legroom as any other airline (Other then Jet Blue witch has the most standard legroom)... but Spirit has the cheapest seats I've ever seen on an airplane.. They actually don't recline and there is not entertainment on the plane... by no entertainment, I mean not even a magazine :)"

Pros: "I am usually able to find something positive about an experience and have traveled much so I understand that some things come up with air travel that cannot be helped. But, there is nothing positive to report."
Cons: "From the delay in Houston on 6/15 on our outbound flight to the delay on 6/18 on our return flight, customer service was poor and Spirit Airline employees - whether at the airport or on t he other end of the 1 -800 number - were not articulate, did not communicate effectively nor did they seem to care about their customers concerns or comfort. You might want to rethink what you could offer to your customers in the event of a delay, esp one that is not weather related. Offering something as simple as a free bottle of water & bag of pretzels to everyone once on board, could go a long way to thanking everyone for their wait. As well, your seats are too close together for comfort. I will not be flying on Spirit Airlines again which is a shame as I have a niece & family in Miami to whom I plan to travel to see."

Pros: "Nothing, the seats are too small number cannot recline. No entertainment, in fact it was really poor. All the booking machines were down now have to queue so long for the only staff. So horrible."

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "The plane left on time."
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "I liked that the wing said Howdy."
Cons: "Spirit is the absolute WORST airline on the market. The seats are so tiny, the airline attendants were incredibly rude. My flight home was canceled after they made us wait on the airplane for over 3 hours. They did not tell us what had happened or give us any kind of update during the time period. The flight was canceled and they were extremely unhelpful. I ended up purchasing a ticket through JetBlue to get home finally. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. You should be ashamed to work for this company."

Pros: "Buying the ticket and checking in were good experiences. Getting updates about the flight was a good thing too."
Cons: "I didn't get a choice on seat assignment. The flight attendants were loud and bumped into me quite often when two were passing on the aisle. I requested to not do that as there is only space for one body to go through. I got 'I'm only trying to do my job' to dismiss my request. Heard complains from one attendant about the delay causing her to miss her sleeping hours. Was not able to relax because of the attendant's loud conversation with one of the passengers and the loud noises made by the slamming of the doors in the food and refreshment area. Tried to keep occupied but the tray was too small to place my apple laptop. So just tried to squeeze myself in my seat to avoid being bopped into my head and shoulders. Not a very relaxing flight. Was not impressed about the are of a customer comfort. Another passengers were also complaining."

Cons: "In addition to one hour delay that created so much inconvenience, the performance of the flight attendants were not acceptable. Non of them checked the security aspects of the flight before departure including seat belts or not letting people keep their back packs between the legs instead of putting them under the seat. Furthermore, my seat was beside a person who needed two seats instead of one seat and all the time during fligt I was in an extreme discomfort. I talked to the flight attendants and asked them if possible to give me another seat but they were not willing to help much.Totally I am really disappointed with boarding+comfort and the crew. I will definitely try my best not to fly with Spirit airlines anymore."
