Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "Delta app is awesome."
Cons: "Really nothing. They did a great job."
Pros: "Better than spirit"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board. They broke 2 FAA regulations by doing this and we were delayed an hour because Deltas computer would not allow this."
Cons: "On my opinion Delta is one of the best airlines. Staff are friendly and they made me feel service. They are really nice and they.take care of been on time and anything you ask them they are there to answer. Great airline"

Pros: "Service is excellent. And the comfort too."
Cons: "A couple of rude passengers that were complaining for everything and I felt Delta crew had to be a little more strict with that situation specially when other customers want to have a comfortable and pleasant flight ."

Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No opportunity to purchase additional food"
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"

Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Cons: "My connecting flight left 20 min early!!! I missed it because my original flight was 25 min late."
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Snack food not health.Cold and I lost my glasses in the boarding lounge and found the lost and found difficult to fill in as I didn't know area code. It took me a while to get I have not had a reply"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Pros: "After flying American Delta was an miracle. I didn't have to spend the night in the airport. It was on time. Everyone was nice & helpful. Easy."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems. Everything went smooth from take-off to landing. Got into Tampa early."
Cons: "I could get me phone to connect to the wifi during flight. I have Sprint. The guy next to me with Verizon seemed to have no problem at all."
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"
Cons: "Boarding lines are awful"
Pros: "Flight landed 1/2 hour earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "I've flown Copa quite a few times in the past and have always raved about the overall quality of the service. My last trip 2 years ago was with Copa to Washington D.C and it was an absolute delight. This time however, there was a noticeable drop in the quality offered: for reasons unknown, the movie started playing extremely late, and was therefore cut short by landing time. Additionally, the quality of the food was also inferior to what I would have expected for a 3 hour, noon flight: it was roughly equivalent of the breakfast served during the SJO-PTY flight, which is barely one hour long."
Cons: "There is not entertaiment. The food could be better"
Cons: "Security was redundant and disorganized. Gate staff were uninformitive."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "Great. Flight"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Food not good. Would be nice if is more organic. Example breakfast more protein."
Pros: "Atención and food"

Pros: "Service was great. Food was good. The flight attendants were attentive and the planes were new."
Cons: "Panamá has the worst airport next to LaGuardia I’ve ever connected through. Crowded; dirty restrooms and poor food options."
Pros: "Comfortable and short"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology, service on board was terrible and unfriendly. Had to run to get to connecting flight. No help from airline staff. Avoid Copa at all costs. Don't fly Copa!"
Pros: "The crew attention"
Cons: "The very ugliest seats. The last ones don't go back to sleep."
Cons: "I cant say that it was good since i didnt take the flight. I had to make a change so it was cheaper to just fly with some one else rather then pay to make a change with Copa. On the way down it was not that bad. I was just not happy with the change price but it is what it is."
Pros: "EVERything was perfect. The only thig is to uodate the movies selection. Def will travel again with copa"
Pros: "Crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "Copa placed passangers in scattered seats even if they were together, we had to talk to other passangers to switch spots. The crew was unhelpful most of the time. Boarding was totally disorganized, it reminded me of a persian market trying to go though a single door, all at once. Security bands to form lines were obviously unavailable. The whole experience was like riding an old bus with no technology, and it’s entertainment was along these lines."
Pros: "This was a good flight. There are more business-like type travelers in the morning and traffic to the airport runs smoothly so early in the morning."
Cons: "My flight was fine and the time seemed to go by quickly."
Pros: "Good service. Has entertaining and food was not bad. Service is friendly. We had a small delay and the captain was communicative and tried to bring us faster to our destination."
Cons: "Bathrooms are super small"
Pros: "I liked the seats, drinks and food."
Cons: "I would have loved to have a veterinarian option."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It's probably not the airline's fault, but I don't think anyone enjoyed just "sitting" and not moving, prior to takeoff, for what seemed like 20-30 minutes, after 30+ minutes spent boarding, though that was largely the fault of the clueless passengers."
Cons: "Food was bad."
Pros: "Flight was good...ease of making reservations...choices and time available"
Cons: "not much to say here"
Cons: "Rude crew, old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "We liked everything. It was short but great."
Pros: "Licor gratuito"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed on bogota no help went we got to panama to get the next flight information"
Cons: "Only middle seats available; couldn't be seated next to travelling companion."
Pros: "I have absolutely no complain about this flight or the crew, they were all diligent and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly, one of the friendlier crews I've flown with lately. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Seats comfortable, but planes are old and outdated"
Pros: "I had taken a COPA flight 2 years ago and the leg room was unacceptably cramped. On this flight the coach seats were given a bit more crucial space. The plane boarding and baggage handling was as fast and pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Everything perfect. On time, good service"
Cons: "And then the next available flight was 1600$ with no insurance coverage. I had to be late to travel with an acceptable flight price. I expect some sort of compensation for this lack of awareness. No one called my name or the flight number before the flight had left whixh is weird to me."
Pros: "Everything was on time and have no complaints on this particular flight."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board my next flight out of Panama City because of overweight. I suspect they knew that was going to happen as they gave me a boarding pass without a confirmed seat."
Pros: "The personnel from check-in to the plane are friendly and professional."
Cons: "At check-in the line is longer and slower moving than necessary because there are not enough agents attending."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and they all have an excellent disposition"
Cons: "Check-in is slow because there are not enough agents attending this process. So when one person has a complication, the line is held up a bit too much. Boarding is not as organized as it should be. On-board entertainment system is not very good at all."
Pros: "the crew at gate 7 was helpfull"
Cons: "my itinerary was all messed up... the plane was delayed and they had me going to the wrong airport.... a freaking night mare....."
Cons: "Not only they do not offer gluten free menu, but they didn't have the fruit plate I asked for. They gave me the regular food and I ate only the salad. It was the worst stomachache of my life. The flight seemed eternal. The crew did absolutely nothing! It was the worst flight ever."
Pros: "The food on the flight was great. It's also nice to be able to recline the chairs so far."
Cons: "The flight was packed full. Even though the chairs recline very far, that means you lose a lot of leg space when the person in front of you reclines. And there is also not very much leg room to begin with. The chairs are outdated (not nice fabric). Also, when the person ahead of you reclines their chair, you have to be very forceful in order to stow your tray table - it's actually a total design flaw. We got very mean looks from the women in front of us because we had to shake their chair so much in order to put away our tray tables. The air conditioning barely came out of the vent above my head, and the vent above my boyfriend's head was smashed completely so there was no air coming out of his at all. The flight was hot, and he was actually sweating."
Pros: "flight left on time, transfer time in panama was short. panama is a good place to switch planes cause tjey dont make you go through security check again"
Cons: "they didnt have screens on seats"
Pros: "The precision of the fligths."
Cons: "The fact that they didn't give help and assistance to my mother."
Pros: "comfortable boarding, on time"
Pros: "todo fue muy bueno el viaje y las atenciones que nos dieron.."
Cons: "que los aviones que me tocaron abordar no tenían nada para entretenerse"
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Cons: "Delayed due to malfunctioning plane"
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"
Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Trip non stop"
Cons: "AA has moved seats closer. Had difficulty putting a carry on bag under the seat. Seatbelts short."
Pros: "The setup at Skyharbor airport in Phoenix is a joke. There is no rhyme or reason as to how they do things. There is no organization whatsoever. Nobody knows what they are doing. Agents are rude. They can’t figure out which gate flights are suppose to go out of."
Cons: "I didn’t like a single thing. The fact you pay extra money for a so-called choice seat and then you have to wait til more than half the plane is filled is a joke. It’s all about money w you ppl. Quit being so greedy and focus on customer service."
Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Pros: "The option to hear the flip down LCD screens. Though I didn’t use them."

Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Cons: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay going, 3.5 hour delay returning. All because their paperwork had not been submitted on time. Terrible organization."
Pros: "Was listed on-time up to 20 minutes before boarding. Then the departure time kept getting pushed back until we departed two hours late"
Cons: "If there is a delay, I'd rather them just be up front in estimating the time of the delay."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."
Pros: "Quick and easy ride to Florida. Only 2 hour flight, smooth ride. Crew did their job and did it well."
Cons: "No entertainment options, I'm assuming because of short flight. No tvs."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Crew was ten minutes late"
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"

Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Pros: "how fast we boarded the plane."
Cons: "The crying babies"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
Cons: "Could not get voarding pass although an AA plane the ticket as tgey called it was co partner with LATAM, so American would not talk to me and LATAM could not help either. Eventhough I was talking directly in the LATAM lounge with a representative. Ridiculous could not obtain a seat assignment until I arrived in Bogota, there I found out that the flight was overbooked and ended up having the last of a center seat."
Cons: "3 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was great and really helped calm my nerves about flying."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Cons: "I didn't event get to make the flight because American Airlines was delaying the flight I was on from Jamaica to Miami, and American Airlines would not change the ticket I had to go from Miami to Tampa, so I was 12 hours late arriving in Miami. Terrible customer service from American Airlines in Jamaica"
Pros: "excellent services from employes"
Cons: "The seats on this plane seemed narrower than any plan I have flown on. I have never had a seat where both my hips were touching side of seat at same time"
Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Delay delay delay on the flights"

Pros: "El servicio al cliente"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at my destination in one piece and found my luggage."
Cons: "Flight delayed, yes I can understand a delay but not only was it delayed, but at the exact time we are originally scheduled to board they switched gates. Not just over one or even ten gates but fro gate D51 to gate D1. In the Miami Airport that is at least a 1 mile walk. At the time they switched gates there was no notification that the flight was also delayed by nearly or should I say over an hour. This causing people to scramble, run and drag children to make sure they weren't late for boarding then when everyone arrives to the new gate, they flight is delayed by 30! Minutes. That alone pisses people off but then after waiting that time, it's delayed again at least another 30 minutes. Just not well managed!!!"
Pros: "Seating space"
Pros: "Service and crew excellent"
Pros: "Friendly front cabin crew."
Cons: "Delayed over two hours at an airport that had very few concessions open due to the late hour. First class seats on AA's A319 are not as comfortable as their 737s. This flight has horrible on time stats. Beware / prepare."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "i never made it to tampa and it was because the staff refused to help and offer assistance. SAS staff was the reason i missed my flight."
Pros: "Because of the delay, I missed my connecting flight, but a United staff member was ready to hand me a boarding pass for a new flight right when I got off the plane. That took away any worry or hassle for me, which I appreciated."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 2 hours. Also, my headphone jack was broken, so I could not connect my headphones to watch a movie. When I tried to explain the problem, the flight attendant misunderstood and just ended up bringing me a new pair of headphones... not helpful."
Pros: "I liked the cost, BUT..."
Cons: "I didn't like that it wasn't readily advertised you get put at the back of the bus, bottom of the pile, lowest point on the totem pole. In other words, I was booked on my return trip as Basic Economy- no frills, no thrills. Last to board, no carry-on allowed. I had to end up paying the same for that portion of my round-trip as I would have if I'd just booked through United. $60 in checked baggage. NOT happy with Kayak more than anything."
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "The back seat doesn't recline at all. Made for an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Not enough overhead storage"
Pros: "On time. Organize boarding"
Pros: "Flight Crew"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Ditt opp"
Pros: "More spacious seats than my 12+ hour flight from tokyo to chicago."
Cons: "Need to advetise the app outside of the boarding gate."
Cons: "United is a bare bones airline with poor everything. Flight attendants that project ther roll MAINLY as safety technicians, uncomfortable seats (not to mention right packing. Booked this flight when it was listed as Luftstansa, but should have made another choice when I saw it was United."
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The flight from Newerk to Tampa was very small and cramped but it was only 3 hours so it was ok."
Pros: "Everybody help me good information Thanks"
Pros: "Waited on our late flight.. Very thankful for that"
Cons: "Seats too close together.. No leg room..and I'm a tiny person! 10:00am flight and only had lunch and dinner options and no gluten free options for real food..."
Pros: "The overall punctually of the flight was very accurate and i appreciate that very much."
Cons: "One flight attended in particular was very rude. Blonde short and slightly over weight. Her deminer towards the passengers was very unprofessional. It is unfortunate to have someone like that in a 6 hour flight. Seats are very small and couldn't charge my phone. Also couldn't watch the flight path unless I paid for the entertainment"
Cons: "Was late like 7 hours"
Pros: "Punctual, good service"
Pros: "The plane was very clean, modern, and it just felt safe. The crew is excellent, and the flight took less than three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Boarding was a bit of a problem, there was a miscommunication of who boarded first and who would board next so the boarding process was a bit delayed and disorganized. No entertainment was offered."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to help the best they could"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for an hour with no a/c. I had my grandmother with me who uses a wheel chair and is diabetic. I am also 17 weeks pregnant. The entire experience was terrible. One lady on the plane ended up needing a paramedic because of sitting in the heat so long. All we got was a sorry."
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Cons: "Tv control did not work, cabin in my área very hot"
Pros: "The crew was mostly friendly. One crew member didn't look too happy to be there, but the rest were quite friendly. The flight took off on time or earlier. We landed and started exiting the plane about 15 minutes earlier than expected which is always good. Even though you had to pay for the entertainment, they did provide one channel without paying and played a couple tv episodes."
Cons: "I don't really have any complaints, it was a good trip."
Pros: "The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I had just flown in with united from Hawaii and landed 6. 15 am that morning and the employees assisted as I was not familiar with the airport. Will definitely fly united again."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service."
Cons: "I had originally booked an isle or window seat and ended up in the middle This made it very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Pros: "I was delayed in EWR Airport for 4hours with very short notice after I cleared TSA.and was going to my gate From a 3:15 departure to 7: :15.Arrived in Tampa at 10:30pm. That was not good at all there was no plan made for that not a meal served after that long wait just a soda and a little pretzels."
Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pleasant and effective."
Cons: "Charging for movies? Charging for Snacks? Charging for my one piece of luggage?"
Pros: "Food options were varied, which was nice. Extra legroom helped a little."
Cons: "I upgraded to economy plus and still felt cramped in my seat. Width of seats doesn't allow for comfortable movement of arms. I'm not a large person, either. Larger issue for me is separate charges for everything. I'd rather pay for a higher priced ticket that includes everything. Maybe an opt-out model would help so people who don't want to eat or check a bag are happy and those who do don't don't feel nickeled and dimed throughout their entire trip."
Pros: "It boarded well."
Cons: "The seats are way to tight my shoulder was up against the stranger next to me the whole flight and if I leaned forward to sip on my drink the chair in front of me hit my head when the person moved. Also the tv's only showed one channel and wanted to charge me even to watch the in flight map. Stop being so cheap!! Also no one ever say please prepare for landing before we landed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "It was full"
Pros: "Friendly and reliable."
Cons: "No free snacks, entertainment hard to access"
Pros: "the crew was very nice"
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable, the rows too close together, with a general crammed in like sardines feeling. The angle of the recline was not right either."
Cons: "Leg room was so bad that my knees touched the seat in front when I crept them straight with my bud all the way in the seat. Very uncomfortable. Flight was going to be on time but then we waited a long time in small seats for a couple passengers from other flight that came in late. Some of these passengers showed up with food. So apperantly they did have time for that. Entertainment was pain to navigate and hard to avoid buttons on arm rest when using it as arm rest."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Pay per view.. Not good at all."
Pros: "Waited 9 hours while they "tried to find a crew" - then they cancelled it. Rude staff - completely disorganized. Had to wait in line for over two hours after it was cancelled to rebook for the next day."
Pros: "I loved the TV, the seats, the window view"
Pros: "Roomy seats, on schedule."
Cons: "Saw on the news United would finally be offering free snacks, so that eliminates my major complaint. Did think it was a bit stingy of the airline to expect passengers to pay for TV. Glad I didn't do it because shows were frequently interrupted by a notice flashing across the screen that the P.A. system was in use."
Pros: "Boarding was handled well. When we hit turbulence the pilot immediately made an announcement that it was storms and OK. Nice landing. We were on time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was nearly nonexistent, surly to the point of rude when any customer asked a question and more interested in chatting at the back with each other than serving customers. One drink cart (no snacks for a 3-hour flight) pass, then be prepared to keep your trash in the extremely tight space until the pilot starts the descent. Bare bones travel without the discounted price."
Pros: "Terrible absolutely disappointing experience.... No food on a 3 plus hour flight is unacceptable!!! Besides late flight causing more then a dozen grown up people to have to run to catch a flight Very unhappy!!!"
Pros: "If just two rows of seats could be removed it would make things so much better. I'm only 5' tall and still barely have enough room. My boyfriend is 6' tall and can't even move once he's in. Of course it's hard financially to pay $300 extra per ticket to visit family so we suffer through."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating, lack of food, being late"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant on the plane and the pilot was excellent."
Cons: "Half of the plane was empty. Though the extra seats are considered "economy plus" if the seats are not occupied, there should be last minute seat upgrades at no charge for the comfort of the passengers, instead of trying to "nickel and dime" us. The passengers that get upgraded would have more room and there would be less congestion in regular economy seating and would amplify the pleasant nature of people while traveling."
Cons: "I think free access to movies or TV would make the flight more enjoyable. I know I could have paid but sometimes I just feel like I'm being nickelled and dimed. A quick scan revealed very few paid-for programs on screens so you would probably make more in good will than you would lose financially."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant. Like the new Airbus A320"
Cons: "$7 for a can of Budweiser?"
Cons: "On my trip to Atlanta, I paid 52.00 for my luggage to ride because I was told i needed a ticket after telling the representative my luggage fit inside the sample boxes. After paying I get to the flight gate and i see people with luggage bigger than mine. I asked how much did it cost to bring it on and they told me it is free for one piece of luggage. So on my way back to Tampa I didn't mention anything about a bag and it was free. I feel the representative should have told me it was free to take it on."
Cons: "Incredibly delayed flight. Flight attendants didn't know where pilot was and plane was hour late taking off due to pilot being MIA."
Pros: "the plane was on time and big"
Pros: "Low class travel. Flight attendants were entertaining as they tried to quiet a customer that was loud the entire flight. "Don't worry we won't drag you off the flight like United Airlines would-but we need you to quiet down. Shhhhhhhh!""
Cons: "Pathetic to charge someone to carry on bags. No note about these fees at online booking. Gate agent told me it would cost insignificantly less to purchase carry on bag online-then wasn't able to tell me how to do so online."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "They home of the bare fare is just that, bare. It gets you to the door of the airplane. Just you, no bags or carry on, no seat, no food. Also bag weight limit is 40 lbs compared to 50 in other Airlines. When you add up the price difference is minimal unless you are willing to travel with only the clothes you are wearing. Flight delay was the cherry on the cake. First time and last time for me."
Pros: "FLIGHT DETAILS : Mr INAM Rabbani. FLIGHT NO NK541 CONFIRMSTION CODE : PHFHKE DATED : 25 FEB, 2017 Please refund my US DOLLAR 55, charged for my bag through my Citibank card. Cards code : 715. Please also give me compensation for giving me mental agony."
Cons: "I was travelling from Atlanta to Tampa on 25thfebrury 2017. The birding cards were issued. First it was announced several times the flight was delayed. Finally the flight was cancelled. I paid US 55 for the My only bag. The amount has so far not refunded in my account. My fight number was NK541. Confirmation code is PHFHKE. My name is Inam Rabbani. Please refund my money into my account."
Pros: "It arrived on time. The on-board crew was very nice."
Cons: "Everything else. The pettiness regarding carryone bags - I don't mean large ones, I mean those that every one airline in the world accepts. The seats couldn't be any closer to each other. The "tray" was worthless."
Pros: "aircrew was nice"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and no Spirit Airlines employees around to provide answers to angry/concerned costumers."
Cons: "My return flight from Detroit to Tampa had a transfer in Atlanta. Spirit made me pay twice for my bag. I actually had to pay for each leg of my trip. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "I think Spirit is trying to give its clients a good fare when flying. The problem is they nickel and dime you to death for everything. What does a can of soda cost? Maybe 15 or 25 cents when you buy it in bulk. But they charge $3.50 or so for a can of soda and to top it off its not even that cold. There planes are very uncomfortable, you can't recline back an inch, they're fixed in one position. Also there flights are always delayed, so if you have to be somewhere in a hurry, forget it your not going to make it. However that being said I do have to say that there crew was very polite and attentive, even humorous. If they could find a way to include certain things in the booking price I believe they would be more successful. I personally will not fly with them again. I prefer to pay a little extra and get more for my money in the long run. That's just my two cents!"
Cons: "Nickel and dime you to death with add-on fees."
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."
Pros: "It was supposed to be cheap, it wasn't."
Cons: "We flew Spirit airlines for the cheap fare, only to find out that you charge for absolutely everything. We ended up paying hundreds more. This was not clear before we purchased our tickets. We all felt this was misleading, we feel completely ripped off. I will never fly with your airline again, and everyone else that we told about this will also never fly with your airline again. THIS. IS. FRAUD!"
Pros: "Pilots got us there 30 min early and v smooth flight!!!"
Cons: "Seats way too close to one in front... I'm 5'9... So shorter people most likely don't find this a problem"
Pros: "Wheelchairs were first priority when loading."
Cons: "Cabin Air pressure was bad with elevation and descending. Flight to Tampa was delayed by two hours with no explanation and our flight home left an hour later than scheduled as well."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "I was delayed to point where I almost missed my connecting flight, but guess what? That flight was delayed as well! Getting there wasn't so bad, but the return trip was awful."
Pros: "smoothest best landing every"
Cons: "cramped and because of poor carry on policy i could not bring my camera and laptop, would have put me into a bigger lugage piece seating too close and restrictive"
Pros: "On time. Sense of humor of crew. Did not appreciate all xtra charges. Bare fare? Fine, but surprised by xtra fees. Tell it like it is in the first place."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was even remotely to what I would call satisfactory. Nor redeeming."
Cons: "This time of year was spent more so in airports waiting for delays and dealing with bad weather and LACK of contingency plans to get THIS flight replaced since this worthless cheap company didn't offer a replacement within 24 hours of this CANCELLED flight. The problem with an airline is not about the price it's about dealing with customers who are STRANDED during the holidays. I had an international flight on the 31st to get back abroad where I study. It was upsetting the lack of service to get my flight rescheduled, it was highly unprofessional how they didn't have a rational solution to get back on the 29th of december. I wish this site, would take over and help us rebook our flight. The problem with our service from Spirit was they would reimburse both flights, but then I would have to go to an airport would be taking a risk to not get a flight when driving 1-5 hours to airports around throwing away valuable time. They said they would give a $50 voucher for a reduction in another flight, but this is NOT at all enough to compensate for the stress I (and my family) were put through. This is the worst experience with an airline I have ever had used. I would not EVER recommend this to anyone flying."
Pros: "I got an exit row seat."
Cons: "You have to pay for bags."
Cons: "Seats every uncomfortable. Delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Flight crew did a great job on the landing, had to be the smoothest one I've had when we set down in Tampa"
Cons: "left 1/2 late from O'Hare with no explanation on what the hold up was :("
Pros: "Missed my flight due to your computer system failure at booking!!!!! No announcement made for the immediate flight while standing in security lines!!!!! Arrived at the gate at 11:12 and the plane door was already closed though the flight wouldn't departuntil 11:20!!! Ridiculous experience!"
Pros: "Late leaving. Late arriving. But flight was good"
Pros: "Cancelled flight, would not even help with another booking. Added costs at every turn. Had to go back to ticketing to get a refund. All on a Merry Christmas eve. I don't blame them for things out of their control, but common courtesy, some help in a new booking and something more than a short announcement (no help on next flights, other airlines ANYTHING) would have been nice within their ability.Never again with these folks."
Pros: "I feel that this area needs some help .....leaving a person in a wheelchair for 15 mins.. I just got up and walked afterwaiting for the delay in Detroit was not a happy camper with my pain things are harder"
Pros: "Good price for 1 weeks notice 200.00 My nephew informed me about the extras so I was prepared. The only thing you got me for extra was a seat , no baggage and I don't drink"
Cons: "A 1/2 hr late but not bad considering Christmas time"
Cons: "Just really unorganized. I don't complain much but honestly I would rather spend a couple $100 more to fly a different airline. They get you from point a to point b just expect a lot of delays. Don't fly this airline if you want to be on time for anything. Seats are really uncomfortable."
Cons: "if the plane had not been an hour late, this Spirit flight would have rated "OKAY". first time with them, and they lived up to their "a la carte" rep. i am sure i am not the first person to joke about this, but i was shocked that i didn't have to slip a fiver into a slot in order to use the toilet. with all the add-ons, there is absolutely no benefit price-wise to flying with them. if you are carrying one small item, traveling alone, not in a hurry, i bet you'd love 'em. but any normal adult would feel cramped/gouged/abused. what a weird business model - folksy/hip/sarcastic ad copy that jokes about the lousy treatment you can expect to receive. such is the new economy."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Spirit lost our luggage after they forced us to pay over $100.00 for baggage expenses. My bride and I had medications, gifts and clothes needed for this holiday trip, Since this incident, we had to cancel plans and spend additional money, This is completely unacceptable. We will be looking into filing complaints with the federal trade commission, the attorney general, better business bureau to name a few."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. Neither flight updated the departure time but instead left everyone waiting at the gate without any information about what was happening. The spirit staff we're rude and didn't seem to care for their guests concerns. My connecting flight in Atlanta didn't have the accurate gate listed on the airport's departing flight screen. To top things off my luggage was lost and I haven't received it yet. I will not be flying with spirit again, and I'm terrified to see what is in store for my flight home."
Pros: "This is the only Spirit flight I've ever been on during which I was not extraordinarily uncomfortable. This is because I paid $35 extra for the roomy seats up front."
Cons: "I dislike being advertised to in general, and particularly by force, as is the case with the MUCH too long credit card pitch at the end of the flight. It's frankly outrageous that Spirit would use its employees and the too-loud-to-ignore PA announcement loudspeakers to push a credit card, or any other product, to a forced-captive audience."
Pros: "The lady told me she couldn't give me a boarding pass because I had to check in 45 prior to flight take off. I was there 40 min prior. :/"
Pros: "My seatbelt was broken and they came very quickly to fix it before we could take off. Flight was quite rough due to turbulence but obviously that was not the fault of the pilot."
Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."
Pros: "Had been over 10 years since I've flown anywhere. Found everything to be pretty adequate. Got a round trip, non stop flight for a very reasonable price, so that was nice."
Cons: "Everything was exta cost."
Cons: "You have to sign up for their membership to check in before the flight, and the seat selection is $10 per, the carry-on bag is $45. Better to fly with an airline that's up-front about their fees, or better, just includes them."
Cons: "Paying for a seat No music"
Pros: "The flight was reasonably cheap. No delay, actually arrived early."
Cons: "The seats are tight and non-reclining. All of us had trouble with our ears painfully hurting in flight not just on ascent or descent. Bad cabin pressure I presume. No frills I get but at least use the standard 50lbs weight not 40lbs. Another way to get you in the pocket. Then they determined it by all bags, not one by one. Rip off."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the non stop routing. Opposition is mostly with a change. But the seats are terrible (I am tall) and the over head binds are very dangerous. (I am tall and have a scar to support the poor, old fashioned overhead bins."
Cons: "The attendants seem to have a competion going for "who can butcher the announcements by speaking rapidly and harshly. It added to the sophomoric attitude thought."
Cons: "Staff was rude and unpleasant."
Pros: "Nice smooth ride"
Pros: "It was a new Airbus plane. And seats were roomy and comfortable"
Pros: "Only half the plane was full so we were able to sit wherever we wanted."
Cons: "The cost of drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Great no complaints"
