Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."

Inconvienced family that had to drive all the way to Orlando, take time from work, waiting for me to return and I now I'm 5 hours late. Staff was not helpful and advised we go talk to customer service at the airport. The flight was also not the smoothest and left many unhappy customers, that won't return to Copa. I understand things happen but they were very unfriendly about this situation..what's the point of spending all the $ on insurance for this situation to occur and there's no compinsation for it."
Pros: "food and drinks!!!! wow!!!"
Cons: "having to get up at the terminal and stand in line to send things through security and than sit back down...ridiculous!"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "star alliance member. worst seats. somehow you let two parents and two children have two seats. screaming, crying, smelly. add to the fact we were on the tarmac for an hour before take-off. i dont usually write reviews because they are good overall but this was horrible all around"
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."

Cons: "A wheelchair was requested at both airports for boarding and at arrivals. On May 10, flight 265 they provide me with one up to the boarding door and advice me that they did not have personnel to provide the service from there to the plane entrance. That also happen to other people that were handicap. After discussions and protest they provide one person to move one by one the persons that were handicap."
Pros: "The movie selection, the moving map"
Pros: "The trip out was excellent. Food was good."
Cons: "They forgot to arrange for wheel chairs in Panama and Miami so it was an inconvenience. To make matters worse,Pne fellow wound up taking us out in bits by advancing one wheel chair and walking back for me and so on. He droptus off in a secure area an when it was time to board, staff demanded that we walk back to the Security point. The woman was adamant and supposedly a supervisor finally agreed that we could wait for a wheelchair. In Miami they had only requested one wheelchair. The food on the Panama to Miami flight left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "FLL's airport is much less congested"
Cons: "Only two Baggage return conveyor belts in FLL the monitors are not accurate as to which of the belts the flights will be unloaded."
Pros: "Airplane clean, staff was friendly, couteous and mostly bilingual. Food and drinks were appreciated and of good quality. We were allowed to check 3 bags without addt'l charges. Definitely felt welcomed and would fly Copa again."
Cons: "Long wait at airport check in so glad we arrived almost 3 hrs before our flight. Staff was pleasant but for some reason desk agent told us that the flight was completely sold out and without telling us, put my wife and I in middle seats in different rows. We were at airport very early and didn't realize until boarding what she had done. In flight staff assisted on the flight and moved us to an exit row where we were able to sit together. Luckily I counted at least 6 open seats and in the end we were happy. I'm not sure why she did what she did. Ironically, she (gate agent) was incredibly nice. Maybe it was simply and honest mistake."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late checking in for my flight from LAX to Cali. Another airlines was 7 hours late delivering me to LAX. My situation dictated that I arrive in to Cali at a specific time. I couldn't wait for 24 hours for the next flight. So I booked a new flight to get me to Cali on time. Here's the problem.. when I went to check for the Cali to LAX flight the gate agent informed me that because I failed to check in for the flight to Cali. That that cancels the entire ticket. I was forced to purchase an entire new ticket to fly back to LAX"
"The flight attendants was rude missed my connection flight because spirit is very unorganized and now I have to wait till tomorrow night to get home I hate spirit"

Pros: "Flight was on time and very smooth"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Spirit has jacked up our flights and plans now twice in a row. 100% failure so far. Will never use them again."
Pros: "The crew was on point. They did their jobs to the fullest."
Cons: "I was thirsty but did not have a credit card on me so I couldn’t order anything to eat or drink even though I had $800 cash on me. The airline does not accept cash for some reason."
Cons: "Everything. Poor service, no proper information, no help between connecting flights with no possible alternatives..simply not caring for their customers. Never flying again with them"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and the seat was super comfortable"
Cons: "if they have a bit more variety of snacks to purchase"
Pros: "Crew, seat contable and price was great"
Cons: "Restriction on checked bag at 18Kg after a payment of US $50, it is totally rediculous for an international flight"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours - no communication as to why or any updates along the way"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Cons: "The flight could have left on time instead the crew allowed passengers to continue to board 15mins after we were supposed to have taken off. The pilot was inexperienced and we had a hard landing. Lastly the flight attendants seemed like they wanted to be anywhere else but on the plane."
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Cons: "Better seat"
Cons: "Keeping the middle seat open"
Pros: "Crew not nice! Very rude and not helpful"
Cons: "They charge money for everything and not help"
Pros: "I hate spirit"

Pros: "Good seats, staff was very welcoming and courteous."
Cons: "Complimentary snacks."
Cons: "Way too many passengers"
Cons: "I had a carry on sized bag and they told me I had it check it, which i did. Now I am at the airport no bag to be found and have been waiting in the luggage claim line for over 2hrs."
Cons: "Seriously There was zero social distancing. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Awful experience .."
Cons: "More comfortable sits. Horribly lounging."
Cons: "The flight was over three hours delayed They charge you for putting a bag in the overhead compartment They charge you for WATER There is no room whatsover in the seats Stewards ignore you Very disorganized"
Pros: "No one ended up sitting next to me."
Cons: "You have to pay for any beverage, including water. This was a 5 hour flight. I don’t know anyone that would think a free glass of water should be optional and therefore considered a la carte. There was no water in the bathroom to wash my hands. Got stuck behind the beverage cart and flight attendant had a nasty look on her face. Chairs don’t recline and I had to pay $50 to check my carry-on bag in because I didn’t read the fine print or visit their website after booking so although it seemed like the cheaper option I probably ended up paying the same amount or more. I wouldn’t recommend this airline if you want to fly comfortably."
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
Pros: "No me gusto nada..."
Cons: "1.me cobraron $100 por la maleta pequeña por q hubo un error cuando compre mi boleto,error de ustedes no mio,hice escala y me cobraron 50 y 50. 2.no hay personal suficiente que hable Español,estaba perdida y sin ayuda en español. 3.no dan Meriendas en los vuelos,todo lo cobran. 4.espacios pequeños en el avion y el avion vacio y me dieron el peor asiento. 5.tuve una muy mala experiencia tube que hacer chek in 2 veces,salir y volver a entrar cuando no era nesesario...tuve un pesimo dia y hasta llore.."
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "never again"
Cons: "miss flight sitting there at restaurant no coutersy call there where rude cost extra 1900 one way to sxm told manager from spirit airline carlos was his name lugage was sent to san juan medicine was in are lugage they said it was are fault to have are medicine in the lugage never again whith them sad lot money extra"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Cons: "When we flew in from Montego Bay to Fort Lauderdale and we had to go through customs; no flight member told us that we had to get our bags from baggage to take through customs with us and then if you had a connecting flight, that you would need to re-check your baggage and go through TSA again. Also, we were not informed that if we had duty-free liquids to put them in your baggage that you would have to re-check. Needless to say, I had to find a box to put my duty-free liquids in to have checked at the ticket counter before I was able to go through TSA. It was a terrible flying experience and I will not be flying with Spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Flight was at 6:30 I arrived at 5:00 and was waiting on line to check in and told me it was to late- even though I was on time ! I missed my cousins wedding and had to pay a fee of $100 just to jump on the next flight! I wasn't the only person either there was 7 more SPIRIT CUSTOMERS with the same issue- it seem like they were over booked and didn't care ! On top of that my small carryon bag was 100$ for round trip- that's insane! Spirit check in worker we're so rude and nasty and didn't care about their customers! Spirit airlines should be shut down- they steal and play with there customers! I DESERVE MY MONEY BACK OR THE FEE WAVED BECAUSE THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! My number is 6317454033 klyn thank you"
Pros: "flight was ok"
Cons: "no snacks. all to be paid separately-additionally"
Cons: "When we arrived to check in, we were immediately told we would not be making our connection, we would be staying in Florida for the night and there was absolutely no other solutions to be discussed and pushed to the side. When I tried to speak with the woman at the counter inside at the gate, she continued to talk on her cell phone, telling me "no, I do nothing for you." I finally said we need to figure out a way to negotiate something, can we please see if any other flights are available that would put us closer to South Carolina. After she reluctantly hung up her cell phone, she searched and said she had a flight to Atlanta but we would be "stuck" there on our own with no luggage and she couldn't do anything about that either. I said I would drive from Atlanta to South Carolina as I absolutely needed to be back the following morning. She said she would make the switch but whatever else happens is on us and not to call her again. She said we would have to retrieve our luggage in South Carolina the following afternoon as she couldn't get our luggage to the Atlanta plane so "don't even ask." I kindly asked her to put my luggage through to our first stop, Florida, we would handle it ourselves. We arrived in Florida, ran to baggage, collected our bags and had them transferred to the Atlanta plane, and ran back through security to make our flight. I can completely understand weather being an issue that calls for no reimbursement, however, the absolutely rudeness and lack of social skills and empathy of the spirit team was disheartening. We will not even attempt to spend money our money with spirit and see if we have a better outcome next time. I will not be recommending this airline and asked my friends to choose another airline for their trip so they would not be treated the same way."
Cons: "I was in Haiti flying back to Ft Lauderdale, arrive at the airport early, check in, go through security, have a seat to then find out my flight was delayed. Annoying but not the end of the world. A few minutes go by and an airport staff (not even a Spirit staff) comes over and says an announcement is being made and we need to go to the ticket counter. Get to the ticket counter and find out our flight is cancelled and there won't be another Spirit flight out of Haiti for two days!!! No effort was made to get us on a different airline, to refund our money instantly, to offer comps, not even to be empathetic. We all had to rush to other airlines and buy different flights home which cost an exorbitant amount. But the only other option was to stay stranded and homeless in Haiti. When I called Spirit later on that day, during a long layover, they gave me a hard time about refunding my money. It's been a week later and I still have not received all my money back. Never ever ever again will I fly Spirit."
Cons: "ONLY ONE CARRY ON PERMITTED, THAT IS NOT EVEN A CARRY ON, IT IS A 'PERSONAL BAG' THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN FIT A PAIR OF PANTS IN IT!!! I FELT ROBBED, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. MY LUGGAGE WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY FLIHTG TICKET, I MEAN I HAD TO PAY TWICE FOR CARRYING A PAIR OF PANTS AND A LAPTOP. I WILL MAKE SURE, NOT TO RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINE TO ANY OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND THEY KNOW. I FELT INSPIRED BY THIS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE TO CREATE A BLOG JUST TO PRVENT OTHER USERS FROM THE LACK OF INFORMATION REGARDING THIS COMPANY. In addition to that, in my three hours flight I had to pay for WATER and the seats were stock (meaning that none of the seats were adjustable)."
Pros: "We could sit"
Cons: "One hour late, no explanation why. One member of staff very rude."
Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "The nickle-diming of the fares,the long winded check in process, the most uncomfortable seats that I have EVER had the displeasure of occupying, the absence of tray tables or seat pockets and the fact that you had to pay for any beverage or cheap snacks. Not to mention the 2-1/2 hour delay with no explanation. I will never fly them again and will make sure everyone that I know will hear of my experiance along with all of my social media. I could have flown Delta cheaper in the long run and in the future will book with more reliable,up-front airlines!!"
