Pros: "Crew were a pleasure. Friendly and very professional. Seats are very comfortable."

Cons: "Fees for everything but air, seats jammed way too close, no entertainment options"
Cons: "Arrived to Newark at 3:30 am -- unacceptable!"

Pros: "The entire traveling process"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Pros: "Cheerful, efficient service. No hidden costs. Free gate to gate WiFi. Comfortable seats. Never flown them before and they are now at the top of my list."
Cons: "Nothing yet."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."
Cons: "It is very difficult to contact the airline via phone. I had to wait almost an hour to speak to a representative. I was told I could call 36 hours before flight to get seat reservations. They should improve phone service. Otherwise flight was very good."
Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "I know the pilot did the best he could but the landing in Newark was the worst I ever went through. About 20 people vomited, including myself. The crew was very thoughtful and picked up the bags before landing."
Pros: "Only liked the price of the travel ticket."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. Stewardess' were rude. The only reason we flew JetBlue was because of the price. Always flew JetBlue but recently very poor customer service."
Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."
Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet and thoughtful."
Pros: "L.L Bean crew was amazing!! The tv channels and movies!!"
Cons: "Bad attitudes, long lines, and no options. TERRIBLE experience and my vacation had to be canceled."
Pros: "The flights are good, plenty of room and great service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for "weather" was a bit much after sitting all day in the airport. Since no storms were in the NJ area until after 2am. The delay I'm guessing was due to Gov Christies ridiculous FAA changes. I cannot hold JetBlue responsible for this but anyone flying into the north east should count on a delay or canceled flights."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."
Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "It was delayed due 3 hours! Terrible"
Pros: "Jet Blues onboarding person did a great job of managing expectations during a 2.5 hour delay imposed by Newark airport officials."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to air traffic was unavoidable. However, allowing earlier passengers to board with multiple carry-ons, of which some were questionable in size, did not allow passengers boarding later to have any room for theirs. Desk agent did ask for six volunteers to check their bags on a full flight. Adherence to the rules of size and number would be fairer to all passengers. Crew was very nice. Previous experience with Jet Blue was very positive."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - they did their best in a bad situation and should be commended for that - they let us get out of the plane after learning after we boarding that we would have to wait 2 hours to take off - they let us get out to go to the bathroom and get something to eat and bring back to the plane - it was very cold in the aircraft and there were not enough blankets to go around - additional blankets should be available - the chips that were served once we took off are not sufficient for passengers that were at the airport 2 hours earlier, experienced a 4 hour delay and still face a 3 hour flight- meal arrangements should be offered when passengers are facing such long delays - the free WIFI was a plus and the seats are comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was great. Captain provided lots of updates and provided useful site information prior to landing"
Cons: "TV kept on blacking out"
Pros: "The staff is great, the seats are comfortable, and the food is good"
Pros: "Jet Blue is an amazing airline. So comfortable and with great service. My flight was delayed for hours due to an equipment problem. I saw this and called them and they instantly moved me to a flight that would leave much earlier at no fee and also gave me Even More Space at no cost! Every time I fly them I remember how great it is. Too bad I don't live by a hub. More EWR flights, please!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, clean aircraft, friendly crew. Pitch space is very good and in "even more space" it's excellent"
Cons: "The choice of food could be better, for me the seats where not that comfortable but I loved the extra space. I'm 6 feet+ tall"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Got to destination 3 hours late each way."
Cons: "No apparent reason for delays except poor planning and inefficiency."
Pros: "The inflight experience was very good (full sized drink and choice of snack), plenty of leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "The check in line was painfully slow (lack of staff - only 2 stations open with a long line waiting). Also, the onboard entertainment system is a bit outdated (no on demand function, works much like an old style TV)"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was smooth, and the experience was awesome"
Pros: "Very clean plane and on time and plenty of good service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick boarding, plenty of leg room,free Wi-Fi, free snacks."
Cons: "Seat was slightly uncomfortable at times but that's a very minor complaint. Overall a good experience and would definitely recommend JetBlue to others."
Pros: "I had a early flight, 7:00 am it was on time, no turbulence, just a smooth ride. We even arrived early ! I would recommend Jet Blue to anyone that's would like to fly safely and comfortably."
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Flight never happened. Changed schedule at last minute. Sent a rebooking for a day later but the connecting flight out of Boston stayed the day before. How do you go back in time??"
Pros: "Only airline to offer to collect and pack the passenger laptops and tablets at the gate in their middle east airports and deliver at US destinations, enabling passengers to use their equipment till they board the flight in middle east."
Cons: "Seats in economy are average for long duration flights and are getting older."
Pros: "Staff was bery friendly"
Cons: "Tv's were fuzzy, plane was old"
Pros: "Impeccable service. Great flight crew. Airport (PBI) is my favorite. The best way to fly!"
Cons: "Now if we could only teach the passengers the same thing (lol)!"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the in-flight FREE Wi-Fi, and the service was great! I will definately look for Jet Blue flights in the future"
Pros: "Extra legroom, free wifi, live tv, friendly crew."
Cons: "Defective reading lights, seat won't recline"
Cons: "Wasn't on time"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was maintenance happening on the plane after everyone boarded. It was a long wait on the plane and it could have been better if that was done before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"
Pros: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."
Pros: "Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre."
Cons: "The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Non stop flight & friendly crew"
Cons: "No foot rest & seats not too comfortable"
Cons: "3h delay for maintenance, missed my connection, added 12 hours to my travel time."
Cons: "Indian vegetarian rice uncooked vegetables cold inedible when asked about different food no protein no vegetables Please have better food more options for vegetarian"

Cons: "The food, of coarse!"
Cons: "3 hour delay. Old plane."
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."
Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"
Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "I did not have a seat! Waiting for people to give up their seats!"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, wifi option. Overhead lighting was on entire flight. AA flight attendants were over it. A bad experience"
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Cons: "Missed my connection in London due to a computer malfunction that took over an hour to remedy. In getting to London, I was automatically rebooked, but with a flight that got me in 10 hours later than expected. I asked customer service about alternate flights, with or without connections, that might get me in earlier, but was given a quite curt, "that is not possible," and turned away. Even if that was the case, which seems unlikely given the multiple other flights arriving in Luxembourg from European airports earlier in the day, it was not particularly friendly."
Cons: "Flight left 4 hours late"
Cons: "4:30 late departure from ORD due to broken plane."
Pros: "Food was okay for airplane food"
Cons: "I was overlooked multiple times during beverage distribution and kept getting bumped in the head even though I did not rest my head outside the headrests. Makes it difficult to get some sleep on long flights."
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"
Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It was over crowded, the person in front of me spilt their entire coffee on my bag and with everyone wearing masks no one can hear you. He didn’t apologize and it was a mess. When I went to get my luggage they just tossed it and then entire bag opened up. My luggage was not over stuffed nor was it even close to the weight limit. Everything flew out of the bag when it came down the carousel. There was also no option to upgrade or even pay for a first class ticket- looks like I’ll go back to flying American."
Cons: "Too much time wasted in boarding dealing g with carry ons."
Cons: "more seating room."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Our baggage was left in another airport and the customer service from the baggage section was horrendous! They lied to us several times."
Pros: "Since it was an empty flight, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "No entertainment. WiFi sucks."
Cons: "Way too hot in the cabin. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They didn't stop boarding until 5 minutes after boarding time. Seemed to be a lot of late comers. We should be pulling away from the gate at the departure time, not just locking up"
Cons: "Storms in Newark caused a huge delay - not the airlines fault, they did the best that they could in the situation."
Pros: "The food was very good."
Cons: "We were forced to check a carry on. Then it got lost."
Pros: "I liked that the ground crew did an excellent job in boarding the flight even though it was completely full."
Cons: "I felt it took too long to retrieve luggage in Newark. The onboard food options were overpriced."
Pros: "Good crew quick boarding"
Cons: "Delayed as per usual with United"
Cons: "Flight landing was horrible, flight crue was not helpful at all"
Cons: "Left my sweatshirt on the flight to sioux falls"
Pros: "The only reason they have two stars instead of one is that the flight crew was good, and flight in general was ok. Also United service counter went above and beyond to help me with my situation, and I am grateful that they were able to rebook me on a new flight and check in my luggage without issues."
Cons: "There was no one at SAS service counter... I had to Google my flight number to find out that I actually had to check in with United since it was actually a United operated flight. Why was I not informed beforehand?? My itinerary said that this is SAS flight, how was I supposed to know that i was supposed to go to United?? Because there was no one at SAS counter, I had no one to ask, I ended up waiting for the counter to open for an hour. When I found out I had to go to United, it was already too late for me to check in so I ended up missing my flight. Thank god for the agent at United however, who helped me rebook my flight and check in my luggage."
Cons: "Delayed by 15 minutes over and over and over again. Arrived almost 3 hours late."
Pros: "Crew was courteous"
Cons: "Gate was not well marked. No room at the gate since it was a narrow hallway. Could not hear boarding announcements."
Cons: "Let's see, umm the plane had a a/c which they could have fixed before we boarded the plane the we had a short weather delay so neededless to say the plane we two hours late thank god I didn't have a connecting flight"
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Pros: "People were polite."
Cons: "I got my flight switched earlier. Paid $57 for it. Then this flight got delayed almost 2 hours so I ended up in NYC at the same time and it threw off my whole work day."
Pros: "The soda"
Cons: "Crazy lady sat next to me complaining about noise"
Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats felt stiff"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "United did nothing to help me get home to my wife whom went InTo labor today when one of their flights got delayed which in turn made me miss my flight from Newark to west palm beach the risk of missing our first child's birth was supposed to be made better by a 10$ food voucher and a oh well that I had to spend the night in an airport and wait another 12 hours to be by my wife's side !! How does a billion dollar company not have any flights after 8 pm ?? Ridiculous The"
Cons: "Landing in Newark we circled the runway for 20 mins"
Pros: "They pick and choose who they thank after a flight. No entertainment, bag of pretzel for food."
Pros: "The bathroom was exceptionally clean. Staff seemed very helpful to people for whom there was no room for their bags. Pilots a lovely smooth landing."
Cons: "I expected economy plus to be comparable to other 'pluses.' It isn't - it is more what I expect regular economy to be. Also suitcases had not been monitored for over-size. There were more than a few taking up most of a storage bin each. Also there was an hour delay for mechanical repair."
Cons: "When experiencing turbulence, the flight attendant came over the speaker and requested everyone to be seated with their seat belts fastened. A few moments later she came back on reprimanding that "THIS IS NOT A JOKE YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR SEAT BELTS FASTENED" which was still ok. The third announcement was the one I felt was highly inappropriate when she then stated "I DONT KNOW IF YOUVE BEEN WATCHING THE NEWS LATELY, BUT THERE IS NO WARNING WHEN THE TURBULANCE IS GOING TO GET WORSE" frankly I have been watching the news lately and there is plane CRASHES on the news. My husband is afraid of flying and that announcement was terrifying, even for someone who is not afraid to fly. There has to be some sort of protocol of verbage to use when the turbulance is getting bad, because to insinuate the plane could crash to get your point across is crossing the line. I have been on planes where the turbulance is a lot worse and felt this was really out of line."
Pros: "The pilot did an okay job of keeping the passengers informed of the delays and what was taking so long on the flight."
Cons: "The plane was old, there was no legroom, it took the flight attendants way too long to get us something as basic as a glass of water, and the terminal is garbage considering it's a major hub for a major airline."
Cons: "No reasons not to like"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Absolutely NO leg space."
Pros: "Hot, 3hrs delayed. /should have notified us about the delay sooner so we didn't waste the day"
Cons: "Very hot plane"
Cons: "Delay and then having to change gates - at O"Hare that means walking and walking some more !! After being insulted during check in. The RUDE woman (poor English) with assisted boarding then the RUDE man that changed my name and my luggage he chose to send to Dayton OH -never been there in my life and he "dug" thru my luggage - as if he was searching for MONEY or GOLD -he pulled out a protein drink and I asked him to hand that to me so I could drink it as I am a diabetic - he shouted at me "I THROW AWAY'. During the two hour delay I could have used it !! Poor service I will fly American from now on !!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The boarding was on time."
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"
Cons: "Perhaps the people who have a tight connection could be allowed off of the plane first. I only had a half hour layover so by the time I got to the proper gate, I had missed my flight and had to wait eight hours for the next flight ."
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and between the straight back and no legroom, a two hour flight felt like ten!!"
Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Cons: "Overall fine, overhead space ran out for group 5"
Cons: "I booked united because I have status with them and like their planes and personnel. My first leg was delayed causing me to miss my connection. Despite having several options of other ways home, they put me on a different airline which I don't care for. It was an older cramped plane and I wasn't able to utilize my status for more comfortable seats. It was very frustrating"
Pros: "The size of the aircraft"
Cons: "That the wifi isn't free"
Pros: "Not much. Stewardesses were pleasant."
Cons: "Late arrival congested- cattle car... 3 flights out of one gate. Poor announcing."
Cons: "It was too cold there"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "They gave us a link to go to but when I tried the link it didn't accept my flight info so nothing and more waste of time"
Cons: "crying babies & no food"
Cons: "no outlets, no tv, no wifi"
Cons: "Changed the flight gate and nearly missed the flight."
Pros: "friendly attitude"
Cons: "$85 for two checked bags, many little issues along the way but got there safely"
Pros: "Bag charged"
Pros: "Steamboat Springs, CO There were many CUBS fans on this flight! Good to leave rainy Chicago & arrive in dry Denver! Even though the plane was late, I was still able to catch my Alpine Taxi to Steamboat!"
Cons: "There should be a way to know when the bathroom is available!"
Cons: "The fact that Reclining seats are a upgrade is unexceptable . The price online to check in your bags change during a check in. I was charged more than what your website state. The check-in reservation is was rude and unwilling to correct a computer glitch . She stated that your software had no ability to override a mistake."
Pros: "Not much. Very amateur service"
Cons: "To pay $40 for a carry on bag is being a thief. The seat in the plane do not recline... comfort is a thing of the past!"
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."
Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. The departure was 40 min late, but the plane eventually landed according to the original schedule, which was nice. The price was very good, even with adding 40$ for too big carry-on."
Cons: "The attendants were talking way too much, making different announcements and explanations almost non-stop. They also organized some kind of reshuffling of people inside the plane due to the need to ... rebalance the aircraft. Never saw it at any other airline."
Cons: "Email notification of a 3 hour flight delay 2 hours before flight but I was already on my way to the airport. Then the flight gets cancelled but no email notification was sent and the screen wasn't updated at the gate (the whole time I was there). If I hadn't come back to the gate during the long delay and asked a fellow passenger why they were in line, I wouldn't have known it was cancelled for a long time. The employees at the gate were helpful in refunding our tickets, etc. but overall, not happy with my experience with Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "Behind, plane troubles, and very uncomfortable seats. Not worth the money"
Cons: "there were too many delays and the situation was handled poorly. I do not plan to fly Frontier again in the future."
Cons: "Worst seats in any plane I have EVER been on (and I travel ALL the time). Those steel seats with 0 cushion have resulted in me having the worst back pain and being on bed rest for the past 3 days on severe pain medication with no signs of improvement. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The tate"
Cons: "Paying for bags"
Pros: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment and I didn't order food, so that's why my rating is neutral. Our flight back was 30 min early, so that was great."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "But not that good."
Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Efficient, quick flight!"
Cons: "No free snacks!!"
Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
Cons: "The web site is deceiving in that it makes you think every seat is an upgrade and no regular seats remain. A distinct "no upgrade" choice needs to be present for people to see. It makes one think, how much money Frontier has made from people due to their purposeful website's lack of clarity. This is pretty pathetic."
Pros: "Great prices and way better flight experience than I was expecting after reading other reviews. Seats don't recline but are still comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no updates were given. Upon arrival, our checked bags took an hour to get to the carousel. Again, no updates at all."
Cons: "The staff does not offer water on a 3 hour flight. Even bringing a carry on for the overhead bin is an extra fee. The website deceives you into paying more for seating."
Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."
Pros: "I liked boarding first because I had a carry on. Easier to lug it up into the overhead compartment without the potential of hitting someone in the head. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats have no padding. Comfort comes at a price I suppose."
Pros: "Staff was professional and helpful"
Cons: "Seats too close to each other. Chairs hard. Cleanliness marginal"
Cons: "It was embarrassing not being able to pay cash. The seats don't recline and it is a shame that we have to pay for carry on. We also pay for small snacks. It feels like a nickle and dime experience."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Leg room gets tighter every year lots of extra charges"
Cons: "I don't like that I have to pay $40 for carry on and $35 for checked bags. I don't llike that I have to pay for seat. With all the up charges, this ticket is more expensive than United, where all is included"
Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment or courtesy drinks on the flight"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, over priced snacks, no foods."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats charging $1.99 for a Coke. Price for tickets were high. Really don't like paying for seating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours. It was horrible."
Cons: "The crew had no idea what they were doing it or what was going on. They didn't tell us of delays until after the last departure time was passed, they gave confusing announcements, and took so long to distribute the food vouchers that all the restaurants in the airport were closed."
Cons: "No TSA Precheck, seats were not comfortable and nickel & dime you for even a soda."
Pros: "Loved that the woman who checked us in at O'Hare did not charge for a carry-on because my husband is active military. Thank you so much! I have a new found appreciation for Frontier. Definitely better than Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "That we had to pay for pop."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, the trip I planned 2 months in advance and they said they couldn't fly me out till Monday and it was Wednesday, Frontier sucks"
Cons: "Crew, hardboard seating, paying extra for everything, wouldn't fly again for a flight over an hour."
Cons: "hard seats"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the hidden costs"
Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived 30 mins earlier! Nice!"
Cons: "Flight attendant stated the water was free but then when asked for more said you needed to buy it for $1.99/bottle! Ridiculous!"
Cons: "Everything you have to pay for! Terrible policy"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "everything is an up charge, from carry-on bags to soda and snacks. if you want any and I mean any extra legroom expect to pay 17-25 dollars extra as well."
Pros: "Boarding was easy due to being able to pay for a seat ahead of time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and I was shocked when I asked for a bag of peanuts and she said that I would have to pay for them. Not even a stale soda is offered. You have to pay for everything. I will pay for Southwest next time. The flight, after all the extra charges, was more expensive than the Southwest flight. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "Everything from start to finish was great. Professional crew, on-time, painless boarding. I'm a fan!"
Pros: "The flight was on time despite the Chicago snows. The gate staff and onboard flight staff were friendly and professional."
Pros: "Courteous crew."
Cons: "Gate change at last minute. Had to wait for plane to get to gate. 1 hour late. Another 45 minutes waiting for de-iceing but that not their fault. Will not use this airline again."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. I will pay for better service next time. I'm not a tall person I and I felt cramped in the seats. There was no in flight movie. It was a 4 hour flight. With all the add ons my ticket ended up being the same price as the other airlines. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The flights were great. Left on time and arrived early!"
Pros: "The worst experience traveling by far"
Cons: "It felt like they had a personal vendetta"
Cons: "Was 5 minutes late for the check-in "deadline" and had to wait 12 hours until the next flight... Airlines used to try to accommodate passengers."
Pros: "Good flight overall."
Cons: "It's more about the airline than anything else. The cost of the checked bag should be included in the fare price. Because I couldn't log into my account online prior to check-in, I ended up paying $52 each way for my bag. As far as the aircraft itself, I found the seats and leg room space to be smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "It took me from point A to point B."
Cons: "Baggage fees are ridiculous. Never again with Spirit."
Cons: "They should at least serve free water"
Pros: "Crew was kind, after some coaxing waited for a family member of a fellow passenger who wandered too far from gate to make it back in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Need updates and alerts on delayed flight!! I was checking my phone every 15 minutes from the restaurant next to the gate, reloading the status page, and the status that it changed from delayed two hours to taking off now happened within a 10 minute window. Next thing I know they are calling for final boarding, last call, even though half the flight didn't make it there yet because they didn't update that the delay was cancelled until minutes before boarding. I understand we all need to take off ASAP, but they've got to understand if everyone was standing at the gate, there would be no room to stand so we all disperse and know we can check our smartphones for updates."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 times and the boarding process was unorganized."
Pros: "They refunded us"
Cons: "Refused to accommodate us or put us on a different flight."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Pros: "Staff was excellent! Very attentive and accommodating. They care about their passengers!"
Cons: "The seats were so close together near the back of the plane that we could not put our laptop on the tray in front of us. Also the seats did not recline!"
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "The head crew member was hilarious with his jokes."
Cons: "I was not given anything to drink"
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Baggage Fees"
Pros: "Jet seemed new and clean, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay!

The 5-hour delay!"
Pros: "The plane seemed new"
Cons: "Paying for every single thing - including carry on bag and water. The low price no longer remains low when charged for everything. Flight crew and other positions didn't have good customer service either."
Pros: "The Flight attendants and the pilots were great,"
Cons: "The flight was aver an hour delayed. With all the mess from the original flight to Chicago, I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Prompt, took off on time. Seat was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was nice overall. You can have coffee raffles for free. Seats weren't too bad for 5 hours flights."
Cons: "The Microphones were too loud. the crew talked too much trying to sell the rewards card. It was frustrating that the carry on is too expensive. I paid $100 total for my carry on. I thought I was saving money using this airline but I end up paying more for fewer services. My flight was 5 house flight with no wifi service. nothing to entertain with. I don't think I would take this airline again unless its 1-hour flight with no carry-on."
Cons: "Don't have any intertainmen in the flight....TV no snacks you have to paid it.."
Cons: "Getting checked in and checking a bag was chaos. Then we waited nearly 45 minutes for our baggage to come."
Pros: "Landed early and gate open. Great trip all over he way even though in a middle seat"
Cons: "flight was delayed seat was terrible terrible airline"
Cons: "Paying for every single carry on suitcase"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. We arrived at our final destination early."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, but the flight was short so it did not matter too much."
Cons: "Baggage fees extremely high..even if you take it on the plane. If you do t have access to a computer a charge to check I at the airport. Have to pay for membership. Time you pay all the high fees no cheaper then other airlines hat have better service."
Pros: "About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time."
Cons: "Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. I knew from one previous experience that they were the pits regarding seat room; but I never figured they were theives They never sent a confirmation of ticket. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO HUMAN BEING TO SPEAK WITH IN PERSON on their telephone contact number, no matter what button you push. The transaction didn't post on my credit card, so I assumed it did not go through. I bought another ticket. Five days later they put both tickets through. that's it I am done with this cluster F$%K airline."
Pros: "??? ???? ???? ????? ?? ?? ??????? ??????? ???? ? 19.90 ??? ????? ???? ?? ??????? ??????. ?? ?? ????? ?? ????? ????? ???? ??? ???? ???? ?????? ????. ??????? ?? ??? ???? ??????( ????? ???? ????? ????)????? ????? ??? ???? ?? ?????? ????? ?? ??? ???? ?????. ?????? ????? ??? ?? cal ??? ?????? ?????. ????? ??? ??? ?????? ???? ?? ?????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ?? ?????? ?????? ???? ??? ????? ???? ??????? ????????. ????? ????? ? 4 ??????. ???? ???? ???? ???? ?. ? 042388421"
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were friendly, although the Spirit crew on my previous flight were very rude to a woman who was on her way to a funeral when she told them that one in her party had been left at the gate."
Cons: "EVERYTHING cost extra (snack, coffee, water, picking my seat, bringing a carry on, a checked bag over 40 lbs.). The seats didn't recline."
Cons: "Everything so awful airline"
Pros: "Open seats"
Cons: "Having a cold"
Pros: "Spirit Airlines does an excellent job. They had a full flight to Chicago, and I understand why! Their staff are fun, safe and courteous, glad to help in any situation. The seats were comfortable, and clean. The cabin was clean, and cold. I like cold. I'll fly Spirit every time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. thank you"
Cons: "I booked my return flight the same day i booked my departure. I didn't recieve an email with my itinerary nor was i charged for the flight so i called the airline. After 30 minutes of my time wasted i was still on call waiting. The day before my return flight i panicked and bought a whole new ticket and then like 8 hours before muy flight i get an email asking if I'm ready for muy upcoming flight. I am completely disappointed with both kayak and spirit airlines. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE BOOKING SPIRIT AIRLINES AGAIN!!"
Pros: "Cheapest flight is a win in my book. You get what you pay for and I paid to get there. Crew was nice, flight not so bad. Would only recommend this airline for flights less than 3 hours."
Pros: "low fare"
Cons: "check in process was confusing- one airport you had to pre-print, the other you didn't, no cell phone tickets allowed. There are higher fees for carry-ons than checked bags. Didn't like the attitude/marketing at all. I've flown other no-frills carriers but these guys just rubbed me the wrong way!"
Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."
Pros: "Our flight got cancelled about 1 hour after it was supposed to departure, due to mechanical issues. Since Spirit doesn't have many airplanes we were redirected to rebook our flight which would not get us anywhere until Monday morning, if we use Spirit. They did offered flights with other airlines, but of course those were gone fast. I missed a race, asked if they could refund at least part of that fee and was told no. Crew was nice, honest and helpful."
Cons: "The honesty of the crew."
Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled 2 hours before departure and it was impossible to buy any other flight to New York on any other airline on that date."
Cons: "Service, attitude."
Cons: "Managed to catch a virus so couldn't travel (doctor's orders). Partial credit was given when I'd much rather just have a refund."
Pros: "very uncomplicated"
Cons: "to little information about baggage restrictions (no carry-on included!)"
Pros: "If you're traveling light, the airfare is great. Only pay for what you need - no food, no luggage, etc."
Cons: ""Read the fine print" is what I was essentially told when I learned I had to pay $50 to check my suitcase. I booked via Kayak - who gives no indication of the several fee options to check luggage, beginning from $30 online at spirit.com and so on. Disliked the service and structure, won't fly Spirit or book through Kayak again."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight at the last second."
