Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "everything was good!"

Cons: "Keep it up"
Cons: "Only one working bathroom, long lines"
Cons: "Copa did not allow me to board plane with setvice animal. Stating paperwork is not acceptable for travel to Peru.

Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."

Cons: "We traveled with 16 months old toddler. When checking in online I requested kids meal under our reservation. So, I got kids meal but there was no food for me. If I didn’t request child’s meal, I would get my dinner, but my child would be hungry. It was ok, we shared, but later I asked for whole milk for my son, but they didn’t have it. I am glad I had some toddler formula with us, otherwise I don’t know what we would do. It was a 16 hour travel with one stop and they had no milk on both airplanes. I never write anything bad ever but I think the airline should reconsider kids services. There should have been milk and separate tray for child to eat."

Cons: "Food was mediocre quality, though cold things were cold and hot things hot."

Pros: "Not much to choose from leaving out of Boston but panama to Buenos Aires was better"
Cons: "The food quality and the entertainment was below average and"
Pros: "I liked the spacious seats and free food and drinks. I love that you get to check 2 bags for free for an international flight unlike other airlines and I did not have to pick up my checked baggage until my final destination."
Cons: "Small plane for a long distance flight. The food was horrible and there is no entertainment on board, so if you run out from battery, you will think about jumping off the plane. Worst airline for long flights."
Pros: "EXCELLENT ATTENTION"
Pros: "Good food for economy short haul flight"
Cons: "Very very very uncomfortable seat worst leg room imagined"
Cons: "Transfer time un Panamá was Too short"
Cons: "The crew at the gate was extremely rude, didn't even called the flight other than once announcing we were gonna start boarding. Then I have 2 infants and when I asked about priority seating, you would have thought I asked her for a free flight because I got such a nasty response, not only me but she yelled at a guy in a wheelchair! Because he wanted to go in front of others to get himself settled (he had all the right in the world to do so) I honestly wanted to say a few kind words to this girl but I didn't."

Pros: "A couple of the crew members were absolutely amazing which did a lot to make up for a late and pretty miserable flight (and"
Cons: "Flight was three hours late. One crew member was so rude and dismissive. It was so unnecessary that it bordered comedy. The entire right side of the cabin's audio didn't work so it made a long flight seem longer. My wife and I selected seats on the aisle during online check-in only to have them moved for some reason."
Pros: "On time and easy boarding."
Cons: "I am amazed at how much people bring on board the plane with them and then those of us who only bring the limit, one small backpack are asked to place it under the seat in front of us. This is unfair and causes us to lose leg room. Monitor what people bring on board!"
Pros: "I loved the crew on my trip"
Cons: "Nothing everything was grate"
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat 20f It was very uncomfortable and freezing My legs were sore after the journey. Besides until 30 seconds before actual boarding time the members didn't inform about the delay. Everybody had formed lines and we see people getting out only then."
Cons: "This was on Avianca, not American Airlines"
Cons: "I do not like that I am missed my flight and got stuck in a city without any re-embersement. I usually use United, but decided to use American Airlines this time. Sleeping in an airport tonight. Thanks."

Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"
Cons: "After everyone boarded they said they had a 2 hour delay and if you got off the plane your flight would be cancelled. After an hour of sitting on the plane they got everyone off so a different plane could board and take off and then everyone got back on the plane and continued to wait. We left 2.5 hours late and when we arrived at the destination the plane couldn't contact the tower?!?! So we waited another 30 mins...ridiculous, rude, and rather fly southwest"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "There was water dripping from the vents. When I tried to inform the flight attendant, she shut me down so fast I couldn't believe it. All she had to do was reassure me that it wasn't a safety issue. Her attitude was like she was tired of telling passengers that it was perfectly normal. Very unprofessional!"
Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."
Pros: "Good flight, helpful staff and friendly crew. There was a flight delay out of Iquitos due to fog, causing us to miss our next connection in Lima to Cusco but the staff in Iquitos made sure we got on the next plane with new tickets and luggage transferred to the right plane. Naturally, we were disappointed with several hours of delay due to safety but were pleased with the service in resolving our concerns. There was no entertainment available on this trip ever through there was a screen for each seat."
Cons: "Lots of time changes. 1 piece of luggage sent wrong destination."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hrs and then sat on runway upon arrival at ohare. I was forced to check my rollerboard even though I've fit it perfectly in the overhead compartment just yesterday on my previous flight (also American airline)."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful given the situation."
Cons: "I changed my flight because they said there would be bad weather. I would have gotten there on time if I never changed it."

Pros: "On time flight, bags made it fine and didn't miss even though we had a short layover"
Pros: "Customer service good. Offered food/service quickly."
Cons: "Film selection was subpar, and had no subtitles available. Flight safety information video so unbelievably boring. Flight crew repeated all instructions at least 3 times including video interruptions. What is the point of having in flight entertainment if crew will interrupt said entertainment at least once every 10 min to remind you you are still in turbulent air? Do they honestly think the passengers forgot? We are in the plane too! I understand they have to be careful due to liability but this airline is ridiculous. Believe it or not customers do not like being treated like children. Would not recommend to others or fly this airline again. Also, the lunch was awful even by airline standards. Btw the airline was avianca not AA. kayak must have messed up or they are owned by AA. AA is great and I recommend them wholeheartedly but Avianca is awful. Stay away if you can afford to do so."
Pros: "Everything, the plane was big and comforting, the fly attendants were very courteous and professional. Awesome fly."
Pros: "The crew seemed to be as frustrated as we were."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we had technical difficulties, the cabin was 90 degrees. It was awful."

Cons: "20 minute departure delay. More than 30 minutes at baggage claim"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and friendly. They tried the best that they could given the circumstances."
Cons: "My flights were delayed so I missed my connection. I had to fly a red-eye from San Fran to Boston getting in at 6AM with meetings that started at 10AM...had to BUY a day-pass at the Admirals Club (I feel this could have been provided as it was mechanical issues that caused the delays). THEN my trip from Boston home were delayed so they switched me to another flight and then THAT one was delayed twice so I actually got home later than if I had taken the original flight! Overall the flights really sucked!!"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and inadequate for a comfortable ride."
Cons: "Seats are too small!!!"
Cons: "they were keeping delay, delay, and delay when I was on the aircraft. My flight was from BOS to PHL on June 13,2017 was delayed and cancel then they pushed me back. They pushed my flight back on the next morning and without any apologize or responsibilities for me and I have been sleeping in the AIRPORT all night! never go to this airline again! bad and worst airlines ever!!!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice staff"
Cons: "Had a 2.5 delay on one of my connectors from NY to Madrid. Was worried I wouldn't make my flight to Vigo on time, but I did!"
Cons: "Denied boarding by gate agent. 5 min past mandatory one hour cut off from boarding. We had been standing in line for agent for 30 minutes. Two customers flying with little dogs delaying the movement of line. Flight was subsequently delayed by 2 hours and 10 min. More than enough time to allow us to board under 1 hour regulation. I booked LATAM instead of AA based on reputation, very upsetting experience for us."
Pros: "Excellent staff and flight attendants."
Cons: "Coach seats were like cardboard. My back was killing me within 2 hrs... :("
Pros: "salio y llego en tiempo. La tripulacion fue muy cordial"
Cons: "hacia mucho calor en la cabina"

Pros: "The landing was excellent"
Cons: "Lack of organization in stowing carry ons inside overhead cabins"
Pros: "Flight crew somehow noticed that we had someone in our party who could use some extra consideration. They pre boarded us as a result! They were also extra considerate during the flight."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Cons: "The cabin crew for first class spent more time talking with each other and a pilot that was on our flight than with those flying. When they started passing out snacks they forgot the plates that had the napkins and utensils and were supposed to hold the snacks."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed, pilot tried to fix it, but he can't."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Forced to check in carry on, 1 hour to get it at bagage claim."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed scheduled to leave at 6:30 left at almost 9. Small updates with not much information. Entertainment system not functioning. Had to get a tow to the gate after landing??"
Pros: "I like that the flight got me to where I needed to go."
Cons: "Lack of legroom and $8 to watch TV seems ridiculous. JetBlue has free TV and better legroom. Probably won't fly United again."
Pros: "Simple boarding process, fantastic friendly staff and smooth ride!"
Pros: "Entertainment free and plenty of choices"
Cons: "Not even any free snacks, seats do not recline much at all"
Pros: "Gate attendant very helpful in Boston. Flights went well."
Cons: "The gate layout very confusing and too crowded w/so many close together in semi Circle fashion. Hard for people to line up or even see where they should be."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport only to find out that they had instituted a no carry on policy for basic economy and that I'd have to check my bag. They acknowledged that they had not informed me of this but that I'd still have to pay. The flight was delayed and the crew was extremely rude through out the flight, to top it off the in flight entertainment and wifi didn't work and the seat was incredibly uncomfortable"
Pros: "awesome, caring staff"
Cons: "Flight was delay for more than 45 minutes"
Cons: "Only sent a code for bad wifi on one of two trips. I wish united airlines would step up their game. At least I didn't get dragged off."
Cons: "United sucks soooooo bad"
Cons: "I was there on time but was told my travel information was not on found even though I had the email confirmation and I lost all the money I paid."
Pros: "I loved being in economy plus! The meal was a wonderful surprise and after my tv screen was reset, I enjoyed 2 movies. Nice staff and service."
Cons: "Having to go to the back of the plane for the bathroom."
Cons: "Delays, very bad customer service"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled for bad weather. It was the ONLY FLIGHT going to or from Chicago cancelled. Typical United. Never flying United again."
Pros: "I liked that the air time was short and smooth (bos to sf)."
Cons: "We waited in security line for an hour. The plane was delayed for an hour for cleaning purposes. There was a plane at our gate when we landed. Ill avoid United for future flight purchases."
Pros: "Not much. Staff were reasonably pleasant. Boarding process is horrible."
Cons: "United is still flying ancient 757s. Broken tray tables, lights no working in the lavatory. Treating people like cattle with the 1,2,3,4 lanes is unpleasant and demeaning. Everything is getting cheaper and cheaper."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I've never had a good experience w in flight entertainment on united. Compared to other airlines it is simply a big step behind"
Pros: "The concern of the flight attendant when she accidentally kicked my foot in an aircast. It was my fault because I had my foot in the aisle trying to stretch out a bit."
Cons: "The inability to access the entertainment through the app. I received the message that it was temporarily unavailable. I was disappointed as I wanted to watch a movie."
Pros: "New plane, great service."
Cons: "The hot meal was gross, but that's too be expected these days. It was nice to even get one, honestly. In flight wifi didn't work but the crew was great about helping us get in touch with customer service about it."
Pros: "at security line the man was friendly and directed me to correct personnel when flight delayed so i could fly standby and not miss my ride at other end. then when i returned to go through security he helped get me in correct line so i could clear in tine all the while friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Inspire of making it clear all through booking, check-in and seat assignment, I was assigned a seat in an emergency exit. I told crew before I boarded that I could not open the emergency exit at assigned seat, due to an injury. I had to board almost last waiting for them to find someone who would take that seat. Then they put me in a non-reclining seat. I was given the wrong free beverage and the crew never came back. So I had nothing to drink on a 4+ hour long flight."
Cons: "The delay in my flight and that nothing was done to compensate that my entire schedule had to be redone to meet the needs of late air crafts, not enough fule and cargo doors not being able to shut."
Pros: "Free movies on the plane, because of errors."
Cons: "4 hour delays both ways. We missed our connection flight due to delays on the way home. That connection was the last flight out of that airport home. We ended up having to sleep in the airport overnight, because United wouldn't pay to put us in a hotel even though the delay was because of a mechanical error on the plane. Our 5 hour flight turned into a big ordeal."
Cons: "Took 3 days to get home got stuck in a hotel pregant stuck between airport and planes for 2 days makes me never want to fly again horrible experience"
Pros: "The courteous agent at the gate"
Cons: "Not being able to get a flight over 20 hours later!"

Cons: "Small plane, entertainment was very poor- no television and poor wifi connection. Not much of a selection with the food"
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "I liked that we were 15 minutes early. I also liked that the stewardess gave me a bag of chips to compensate me."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone took my bag of expensive Airport snacks and threw them away while I was asleep. Who reaches under people's legs!"
Cons: "Rude crew, departed three hours late, and not permitted to bring carry-on luggage. Awful."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, staff were okay."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of orange juice, cold and uncomfortable, old aircraft."
Pros: "Took off late but landed on time"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Hot on board."
Cons: "Our plane was constantly moved around prior to boarding and it was 2 hours late."
Pros: "I didn't not make to my flight on time because I didn't know I need yo check in a day ahead but luckily there was another flight leaving over an hour and a staff was able change the flight for me without charging a fee. that was very nice. My seat was on three roll seats and there was another person was same roll and we share other seat and strength our legs."
Cons: "In flight movies did not work."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Kinda bumpy"
Pros: "Smooth and early."
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "I originally self checked in for my delayed flight from Boston to Newark, but forgot to add TSA pre check. I went to ask an agent if she could add it, which she very kindly did. She also offered and put me on an earlier flight, which made my day! Thank you!"
Pros: "How they captain kept us informed and updated frequently. About flight, weather, turbulence. Overall great flight, smooth, free entertainment."
Cons: "I thought the crew was rude and unattentive."
Cons: "My bag didn't arrive to the destination. The food in the plane was terrible. I was really disappointed from the company."
Cons: "The last 5 times I have flown united I have either been cancelled or delayed to the point that I miss my connecting flight aND get to the destination. 24 hours later I will NEVER book a united flight again"
Pros: "Willing to drive to Charlottesville. Difficulty finding one way rental"
Pros: "No complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. Boarding was very organized and quick. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant to everyone. Joked around to make you feel more excited to board the plane."
Cons: "The seats were tiny. Not much comfort in that. There wasn't any food or drinks offered. We hit turbolance the entire time (not your crews fault)."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and nice. Due to a 2+ hour delay we had free movies on the flight."
Cons: "The fact that our incoming flight was delayed more than 2 hours."
Pros: "Price, but know what to expect."
Cons: "Spirit charges even for water."
Cons: "Too much overhead chatter. Very loud. Caused quite a headache."
Cons: "Not worth the hassle. After paying for bags and seats it costs more than a good airline. Cancelled my flight and basically offered no assistance. They blamed 'weather' because of thunderstorms. No reason not to wait out a thunderstorm. Requested a refund and still don't have my money back."
Pros: "Seats & smaller cabin."
Cons: "The fact that every time I fly with spirit, it seems to be late. They don't pass information along to let people know what's going on and why it's being delayed. Very poor customer service and overall product."
Pros: "At least i had a window seat"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Chairs had little padding. Backs of seats had zero padding to maybe lay your head against."
Pros: "Boarded flight on time and landed a half hour early."
Cons: "Fees, fees, fees. Pay for a seat that you will fit in comfortably. Pay for luggage to be checked. Pay more for luggage to be carried on. Fees, fees and more FEES!!!! Oh plus $10 if you don't print your boarding pass ahead of time! MORE FEES!!!"
Pros: "I forgot to get the flight attendants names from this flight....THEY WERE INCREDIBLY HOSPITABLE & NICE!! I have never flown Spirit before & I was truly impressed with the airline!!"
Pros: "The seats were great. Very comfortable."
Cons: "1.The flight was delayed from Boston almost 30 min. 2. I had to almost pay for a small carry- on bag because I had a backpack with 2 books. I managed to remove my books and put my backpack in the small carry-on."
Pros: "Stewardess felt sorry for me No delays"
Cons: "Seats were too small I'm 6ft4. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I love the no frills option for an excellent price! Friendly, competent staff. Flights were smooth and timely. Planes were comfortable."
Pros: "I got seated in first class!"
Cons: "Coffee terrrible"
Pros: "It went where I needed to go"
Cons: "There is almost nothing that would make me use this airline again. My flight wasn't even cheap, so that definitely didn't make up for the fact that I paid $50 both ways for my carry on bag, and one $30 seat fee so that I could request a window seat on a cross-country red eye. Water is not free on the plane, and still there were no seat back pockets, so the water bottle I bought (and didn't want in my bag w/ important documents) rolled around on the floor all night. I'm a small woman, and there was barely space for me to fit in the seat. Uncomfortable, expensive."
Pros: "Crew members were polite"
Cons: "I bought tickets through Kayak and there is no warning about $55 charge for carry- on I bought 7 tickets had to pay for carry -on They did not give me a receipt for carry-on that I paid 3:40 min flight has no recline sits It's so awful that you have to pay for water One person from our group feel fatigue because he didn't have a credit card and feel shy to ask for money because he was sitting in front ,away from group Scam with carry-on Poor service No entertainment Didn't feel safe Should be investigated by government They must say about carry-on policy before people buy tickets Third world air company They should return carry-on charges (cash scam) Low cost with hidden charges Government should order them to give free water/juice on flight I fly 6-8 times a year this was most unpleasant flight I ever had"
Pros: "The best and funniest flight announcement ever! Also, we got upgraded to first class seat!! Amazing."
Cons: "The seats could not be dirtier"
Pros: "*Low Fare *New Airplane *Fun Crew/Great attitude *On time"
Cons: "*Seats didn't recline much at all *Im 5'7" and my knees were close to touching the seat in front of me"
Cons: "Be careful flying with Spirit. Their policy is that you pay a very small base rate, with no frills whatsoever. The seats don't even recline at all. Baggage fees (even when paid online ahead of time) are very costly. You don't even get in-flight water for free. I can't tell you how many customers were upset any complaining about various aspects of the surprise costs associated with this airline; I'd imagine all over the country every day Spirit is causing frustration to hundreds or thousands of people. Would not recommend."
Pros: "Non stop flight, safe arrival of course."
Cons: "No leg room, extra narrow seats, no complimentary beverages or snacks (in a three hour filght, they did not even provide a free glass of water, at the very least - prices are absurdly high), no headphone jacks/screens/entertainment, no WiFi for one;s own devices. So unprofessional - they do not even have their own gate at Logan airport (had portable stand placed in front of a United gate, on which was not even listed the actual departure time of the flight.). Only reason I chose them was seeming lowest fare. But they ended up wanting $55 additional dollars for my small CARRY ON and $7 to choose my seat! Never again. Delta on way was a zillion times better experience - and cheaper!"
Pros: "The schedule worked for me. I chose Spirit because it had a non-stop when I wanted to go and where I wanted to go. Price was lower than other carriers, but not when you add $100 round trip baggage fee."
Cons: "Sales pitch for credit card on board. Overhead advertising. Not even water as a courtesy. On-line check was so difficult that I gave up. (I think you have sign up for some kind of membership if you want to check in on line.)"
Cons: "Seats do not recline and no wifi!! Additionally you pay for everything from carry on and water!! Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight delayed but handled it well. Preflight communications were excellent from spirit and from kayak."
Cons: "Crew seemed unexcied, not engaged."
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "The crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "charging money for luggage"
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Every Spirit fight that I have taken has been delayed majorly impacting my trips. The first making my family miss one full day in Miami after the flight was delayed twice. Yesterday my flight was delayed over two hours for crew issues. I understand weather issues, but there should be some accomodation made when it is entirely the airline's fault. I witnessed one distraught passenger try to get assistance when the realized they had left his daughter's medication on the plane after leaving the plane. The gate agents were sort with him, not helpful in any way. They did call for a supervisor who showed up with a lollipop in her mouth. So unprofessional. I could go on, but I won't. This is a low cost carrier, with fares seemingly lower than their competitors but make sure to consider all of the fees before buying your ticket. Chances are the price is close to another carrier."
Pros: "Got to my destination eventually."
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline ever."
Cons: "First I got text flight is on time I left home accordingly. After getting boarding pass it was delayed 35 minutes. When I went to boarding area. Close to scheduled time announced that with flight will be late over another two hours. I arrived at my destination at 1:00 am instead of 10:30 pm. It was highly uncomfortable for me and as well my host. Who came too pick me from 1:15 distance. I will never advise that to save $30-50 dollars. Ruined your entire trip. Never ever travel Spritor advise others."
