Cons: "No vegetarian food options, couldn’t bring water on to the place but were not given water bottles for a 5-6 hour flight, plane was hot. Sat on the tarmac in Boston for almost two hours once we landed."
Pros: "Amezing service"
Cons: "Great airline. Amazing service."
Cons: "I called in advanced and requested a vegetarian meal. Apparently no one was told l, and they were no vegetarian options available. Also, there was only one movie running in a general tv without any other entertainment options. This should not be allowed on an international flight >5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was great. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."
Cons: "Superb flight staff."
Pros: "Very nice crew especially when I got sick. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. There should have been ac, easy access to water and a bathroom once through gate security. Also out of our group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It was nice that they got that but it would’ve been more fair if the whole group could have also."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The time was great and on time."
Cons: "The good is very poor."
Pros: "On time , the crews"
Cons: "The food , and videos , individuals screen"
Pros: "Not a crowded flight so we were able to space out"
Cons: "Food was horrible. I found hair in my pasta"
Pros: "Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Everything else was wrong with this flight. It was delayed for almost three hours with no explanation even though passengers were asking about the reasons. All our questions were simply ignored. They gave us coupons for food for ten dollars. Nothing can be bought with that money. And they didn’t have coupons for everyone so had to wait a lot until they brought all the coupons. Boarding was a nightmare. Crew couldn’t care less. A woman refused to seat far from her “kids” (about 9 and 14) and flight attendants didn’t do anything ti stop the woman from blocking the aisle. We were already almost three hours late. Overall the worst experience."
Cons: "Some food"
Pros: "COPA offers excellent service! Their newer aircrafts have individualized monitors on each head rest for added control of what one wishes to view. Clean and spacious aircraft. Nice crew and bountiful beverage/ meal service. Fair luggage allowance and flight options will keep us coming! Keep it up!"
Cons: "Panamanian TSA has a second checkpoint at each gate. This means you get the general check we are all used to, but at the gate there's a second patdown and x-ray where liquids purchased inside the terminal are discarded or you have to exit the gate area to drink it! People had to give up their sealed, duty free bags and we had to give up our cans of soda we had just purchased. Fuller disclosure- in Spanish and English- should be given to patrons at stores and BEFORE entering the gate to avoid displeasure. We know drug traffickers are slick, but innocent people don't appreciate the inconvenience. My son's blunt tip, plastic, safety scissors were also taken at this airport because of the thin "blade" affixed to the plastic, but it left the USA in his school pencil case without any issues on our way there."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "We had the last seats in the plane, were served the last, and no offer was made to move us to open seats further up. Multiple people stood in the aisle to use the restrooms (6-7) which meant they were in our faces (I thought the US limited how many people can stand in line on a plane post 9/11); people also got up and did not pay attention to seat belt signs throughout the flight and the crew did nothing. The film was the same one shown Southbound, not as listed in magazine. We were late taking off and late landing (the latter beyond the captain's control, don't know about why we were late to take off)."
Pros: "The flight was quick"
Cons: "My tray was broken so I had to eat on my lap . Seat didn’t recline and no entertainment"
Pros: "Free alcohol (not just beer and wine) and decent dinner on the flight from BOS to PTY. Flights were on time and my two pieces of checked luggage made it through no problem. Crew seemed friendly."
Cons: "Airplane interior was spotlessly clean, but is a bit of a throwback (cloth seats that seemed kind of small). Don't expect entertainment screens or charging ports, although my connecting flight did have these. Depends on which plane you get, I suppose. I couldn't hear anything the pilot was saying over the loudspeaker. Hopefully they can upgrade their fleet. BTW if you have a choice of doing a really long layover at the Panama airport, don't. Crappy amenities with nothing but overpriced American fast food."
Pros: "Easy connection, easy inspection and punctuality."
Cons: "FOOD!!! Options very limited and preparation very poor."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed once again that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So I was served a single roll and a salad aka (one slice of cucumber and about 3 fork fulls of lettuce) but hey that's better than getting nothing on the 1st dlight. Also I was given an exit seat and was literally the first person in line that morning to check in but when I boarded I was told I had to move my seat because I didn't speak spanish... So why assign me the seat in the first place. Also flight was delayed about an hour and a half NOT due to weather conditions."
Pros: "Little screens for movie"
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Need more water supplied.would like more movie choices. Also..warning...after you pass through security in Panama..don't buy water...there is a second security at the gate and they will confiscate the unopened water you just bought next door to the gate.....!"
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff. They gave us a voucher for $10 for food because the plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was two and a half hours late but we did not find out until 1 hour before takeoff."
Pros: "People are very friendly"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all, especially for breakfast and snacks. Also, the seats and entertainment are on the older side, therefore not very comfortable (but not uncomfortable) and not easy to watch/enjoy."
Pros: "The entertainment system of the first plane"
Cons: "The food can be better but it isn't far from great."
Pros: "Service of blankets."
Cons: "Not friendly and organized before the flight."
Pros: "All aspects were good"
Pros: "The flights left on time"
Cons: "The food is really bad"
Pros: "speed of baggage return"
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Another great flight attendent"
Cons: "Older plan with less movie options"
Pros: "Copa es una excelente aerolinea, la atención muy pront, un viaje tranquilo seguro y puntual muy feliz y agradecida con todos ustedes son un buen equipo de trabajo."
Pros: "Staff was nice and friendly and encourage you to take the alcoholic drinks! Meals were ok, but they confused shellfish allergy with gluten allergy. They allowed me to switch meals though."
Cons: "Seating is tight in the main cabin, location of headphone jack (side of hips), quality of headphones given to you (mine broke in the port), no individual tvs in the head rest, no WIFI (just terrible) and the worst was the second security check at the gate in Panama (my friends had to down their water or get rid of it before the flight)."
Cons: "Baggage claim.. Slowest I've seen in years.. Horribly slow add an extra hour to your trip. I usually don't write about this but it had to be said. Very inefficient not sure what happened."
Cons: "Not even there yet...Apparently plane did not meet safety standards. 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: "Staff was great and very respectful."
Cons: "The unexpected layover was unfortunate, the delay then after that due to equipment malfunction was then more annoying because I was just eager to get home."
Pros: "Well organized/great crew"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't dislike. Will fly Copa again"
Pros: "Beer for husband was free. Blankets provided. Full security check required twice, at main entry and at gate."
Cons: "Slightly scary landing under windy conditions at BOS-- came in fast and braked very hard. Copa pilots are new to Logan runways, which also happen to be under re-construction this year."
Cons: "I did not care for the fact that they set up a checkpoint after I made my connecting flight then made me recheck through security at which point they tried to confiscate our very expensive duty free purchase that was in a sealed duty free bag! Only when I demanded a manager did they stop trying to confiscate it. At which point they made me check my carry on luggage! I find this very suspicious since I also discovered that someone tried to access the inside of my luggage at Panama City on the initial flight! Your crew on the ground and in the terminals in Panama City are running scams! Beware! Very disturbed by this and plan on sharing this on social media as a beware to copa travelers going through or to Panama City! Literally set up check point at ramp to plan confiscating stuff bough in the terminal after already going through security!"
Pros: "great service"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful, offered "rice or pasta" chose rice without knowing it had red meat and the other had chicken. Meat was hard and horrible to chew, asked for a different tray for my husband and I and we were told "only if there are some left". About 50 min later, the attendant showed up with two trays when they were starting to pick up old trays. Entertainment was ok.. Played lion on small overhead screens After over 1h at passport control, our luggage wasn't there, they sent a few suitcases and told us that was it but then They made us wait like 15 more min for our suitcases... Bad experience"
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient. The food was warm."
Cons: "-I didn't received a web check access email. -my bag is currently missing, I was frustrated because I wait a long time (over 1 hour) to get a claim form completed."
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."
"Quick and easy. Chairs are hard but short flight, so no problem. Crew smiled and were nice."
"Our flight was delayed by 7 hours"
"Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy."
"This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it."
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I like that all the chairs have working electric charger. Other airlines probably have this but it is important for me and they have this."
Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Cons: "Entertainment system nor working properly. 40 minute flight delay due to minor cabin seat malfunction."
Pros: "Nothing special good or bad"
Cons: "My seat did not recline properly and had to sit upright throughout the flight, so was less comfortable."
Cons: "We need food"
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Attention to detail by the gate attendant who totally missed that I was boarding the wrong flight"
Cons: "Leave a seat empty in the middle could be good for social distancing"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "American has been overbooking flights, doesn't respect social distancing, not true that the middle seat is empty, the person next to me coughed frequently, and since it was a FULL flight, I couldn't get another seat!, never again American"
Pros: "Very timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"
Cons: "How come I always have a beautiful and talented flight attendant? She was perfect!"
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Pros: "I was pleased there was entertainment for a short flight."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I could only be booked onto one the following day, causing me to miss a good portion of my dear friend's wedding festivities. I am pretty bummed to have paid the amount for a Friday flight only to be able to arrive on Saturday."
Pros: "Ne’er front of plane for easy on/off. Payed extra for extra leg room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were overworked on a full flight."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was an issue where someone had boarded and somehow taken my seat. I was asked to wait until the very end and then allowed in my seat once the passenger in my designated seat was asked to deboard the plane. I don't know how that could have happened."
Pros: "Or some attitude re-adjustment. I usually observe rude passengers acting the way some of the stewards were acting."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "I got to Boston safely and the pilot and attendants did their best jobs. Also my luggage arrived in a timely manner."
Cons: "Your seats are too small even for a relatively small person. You should hire more flight attendants so that they are more available to help customers. We should be fed on flights of 6 hours long. American treats us like chattel and make flying unappealing."
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Cons: "flight kept getting changed from delayed to on time then we finally get on the runway and have to shut the engines down and we were told that we would have to wait there for an hour"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Cons: "I specifically never choose American Airlines because whenever I do there are problems. I chose Iberia, not American Airlines and I got switched to it. Sat at the gate for 2 hours after my flight was ALREADY delayed because they didn't load our luggage under the plane correctly and it wasn't safe to fly. I will be calling American Airlines to file a complaint."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Cons: "The connecting flight was with a partnership airline but I was not notified of this before I got on my flight. When I went to the information desk they had no idea where my flight was, or if it even existed. I had to wait for the Hainan Airlines booths to open for a different flight and then ask them. I waited over an hour in total and was then afraid I would miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Streamlined boarding process"
Cons: "Outbound flight was delayed by 2 hours because the flight crew that was supposed to fly our flight was delayed relying out of some other airport. Had to get a rental car and ended up reaching my friends place really late. And had an interview early next morning. Not ideal at all."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Like the entertainment selection with the gogo app. Just wish there were power outlets to charge my device while watching. Old plane didnt have any"
Cons: "people suck at boarding and there are too many priority classes (i'm gold)"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Couldn't flight. I was on time, got an inspection through the police,. Missed my flight for the long inspection. Now, the airline wants me to pay penality for something that I didn't commit. Francisco Vishnu Carpio checa"
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "I liked when we finally got seated and the captain gave us an update as to travel timelines."
Cons: "The boarding took an hour longer than expected and nobody was alerted because of the delays. There was only one crew member at the gate checking in all the people. There was no in flight drinks or snacks. The flight staff was curt."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Cons: "Sat on the Tarmac for 3 hrs before being put on another plane"
"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"
"This is the worst airline ever! Do not fly this airline if you want to actually get to your destination on time. Multiple delays, cancellations, and long lines. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Seats are way to small. Crew was rude. Flight was 2-1/2 hrs late"
Pros: "Getting home safely."
Cons: "Getting home on time."
Cons: "Crew etc"
Pros: "Not at all"
Cons: "Your rules! Spirit allows 1 carry on? Sucks. You have to bay $50 to check A single bag? Sucks and too expensive why don’t you try to be like Jet Blue and make it nice for us flyers. Spirit blows"
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: "I like better if the food is free"
Cons: "Too crowded given the current situation"
Cons: "Spirit charges you for EVERYTHING. $55 for carry-ons seems outrageous. To select our seats, it was an additional fee. We did not pay the fee because we don’t care where we sit, but they sat us (me and my minor children) separately. Middle seats are not blocked, so social distancing is impossible. They are continuing to sell snacks and taking cards and cash. Safety does not seem to be top of mind, which is concerning to say the least."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Y"
Cons: "Everything else. I couldn't check in online. When I got to the airport, I was told I didn't have a flight. I showed the lady my confirmation email and she kept telling me that I only had one flight (this was my return flight home from Florida), I had to show her the difference between the two flights. Then she tried to tell me that I had cancelled my flight online..... which I hadn't, hence me being there trying to check in. Horrible company. They push their flight attendants to have customers sign up for the Spirit credit card. Just horrible horrible company."
Cons: "I had 3 bags which could easily fit into the cabin space. One of the bags I had carried was the same bag which I had while boarding the flight from Boston to Chicago on 8th Jun 17. While in that trip I was not charged for the bag as the size & weight fitted into your norms. But I had to pay $195 for 3 bags,including the bag which I had while leaving Boston. The behavior of the staff manning the boarding gate was nasty. As I was not having a credit card with me, I chose to pay cash. But they refused to accept cash & told me that my flight will be cancelled and I won't be allowed to board the aircraft. I panicked & requested the passengers to take money from me and swipe their card. With great difficulty I found a passenger who obliged me. A fresh boarding pass was issued to all 4 of us. The bag which I had while taking the flight to Chicago on 8/6/17 fitted on the equipment which measures the sizes, but I was made to pay for it. Very horrible experience of flying a so called low fare airline."
Pros: "Sitting down. Not much more was pleasant."
Cons: "Got jammed getting on the plane. With time to make it through security we were held back. Now missing our flight, we were hit with late fee and a flight for 12 hours later. Spent all day at the airport, missing afternoon engagements on the home front. Then waited in the terminal to then realize we had to pay for carry on baggage. Should have been identified when the new tickets and boarding passes were issued. No notificTion. We then had to pay before boarding, the attendant saw that we paid a late charge and continued to bill us for carry on. No discount, no empathy, not how to do business. Not a fan of surveys and have not filled one out in years but this experience was past poor. The delay and charges added up to a travel that would have gotten us to the.other coast, not the 55 minute flight home. The flight was.also delated for over an hour, pusbing us out even later due to weatber? Weather between Baltimore and Boston were clear. Bostin our destination city was clear as well. Just a terrible experience and will not be recommnding any services with thus carrier in the future."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative and my seat was comfortable. I also received numerous updates regarding my delayed flight so I felt well-informed as to the situation."
Cons: "My flight was delayed three hours. In spite of this lengthy delay, no complimentary food or drink was offered on the flight. I have experienced delayed flights prior to this and have found that the airline generally tries to make it up a little bit to the passengers by offering them some basic complimentary snacks and drinks, which I feel is a nice gesture. I was a little surprised that this was not offered with my delayed flight yesterday. The only available food and drink options were very pricey so I went without."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Pros: "Not much except the quick boarding but that's because no one brings a checked bag which is a HUGE negative."
Cons: "First of all the people who work at spirit in Florida are very rude. Second it is a major scam that they advertise cheap flights. Their flights are cheap because they charge you for your carry on. $57 to carry on a small roller bag and $50 to check your bag. To me that is unbelievable. There is plenty of space and it makes no sense. They also won't even give you a free cup of water. Flying naturally dehydrates your body. I'm surprised we don't hear about more people getting sick or passing out on their flights! I just couldn't believe for a 3 hr flight I'd have to buy a water bottle. In the end just was not worth the cheaper flight price. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Ridiculous charges for everything you get on other carriers for free: printing boarding pass, choosing a seat,water, carry on bag allowance. Additionally seats are extremely small(and I am not a big person), no inflight entertainment available at all, no option for an electronic boarding pass and additionally the flight was delayed. With what I paid for the flight itself, the charge for 1 carry-on bag and the fee for selecting a seat at the time of booking, my total cost was more than what I would have paid on Delta or American. Will not be a repeat customer of Spirit."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board that had everyone questioning what was going on. We all heard a scream, that of course freaked all of us out. Nobody was telling us what was going on or asked for a Doctor on board. We even landed without knowing what happened. Because most of the staff was tending to this issue, when it came time to throw out trash, the flight attendant was swiftly walking down the plane calling out "trash". I didn't even have enough time to hand him mine before he passed our row without looking. The flight was also extremely turbulent. And a word of the wise for future Spirit purchasers: the seats do not recline AND there is no on board entertainment."
Pros: "Good service and staff worked with a smile."
Cons: "The website is not the easiest to navigate. I don't like the look...not very professional. The ads boast of the airlines low cost but it Nichols and dimes you for every little thing. I wasn't happy that when I did the early check in the day before departure it offered me to get bumped up to Zone 2 so we would get seated first and have first access to the overhead bin. I purchased it for about $20 but on the way to West Palm they called both zones to get up to board the plane and for the return trip to Boston, Zone 1 got called first to board. This was money spent for nothing....like a donation. the bottom line is that what we spent with Spirit was not less expensive than other airlines. By the time you add all extra fees, there are no savings."
Cons: "the flight was delayed again and again for over 18 hours even as other planes from other airlines took off around us. at one point we boarded the flight and sat 10 feet from the gate for over an hour before they returned us to thr gate and made us disembark. for another set of delays we were told that the person supposed to tow the plane had lost his access badge and another person had to drive in from home to do the work. other than this, the gate staff gave the passengers limited to no information. no amenities were provided to delayed passengers (no snacks, accommodations, etc). plus, the terminal had only one women's restroom with only two stalls, one of which was frequently out of toilet paper."
Pros: "The flight to Fort Lauderdale was outstanding in all respects, including carrying on our bags."
Cons: "The Spirit check-in for the flight back (2/27/17#616) was degrading, confused, and expensive: the worst ever in a long experience flying worldwide and our last with Spirit. After making them aware of a hip transplant, we were directed to the wrong location eliciting an rude expletive; redirected, we were told our carry-on was too big and charged $50. to check it. I had carried it on at Logan and with Delta 2/8 and 2/10) and many other airlines before. On board people all around us carried on bags similar in size to our checked bag."
Cons: "They told me I needed to spend a lot of money to sit with my 6 and 7 year old children. A LOT of money. Without spending extra, we would be assigned random seats. I didn't believe them because it breaks FAA rules, , so I checked in without our. Basing the seats and I was already seated with my kids. They obviously lied and tried for the upsell. They changed my flight 4 times and never sent a notification Website is intentionally deceptive and horribly designed. I tried to purchase bags and it checked me in (without my consent), tried to upsell me on a credit card 4 times, tried to upsell and confuse me about purchasing priority boarding, Only one working bathroom on a full flight. They deceived everyone at the gate and said a carry on was 100 dollars but failed to mention that it only applied to carry ons over a certain size. Worst company I've ever dealt with. Deceptive."
Cons: "After a slight parking delay at the airport I made it to the Spirit check-in 43 minutes before departure. Spirit representatives had already left the counter leaving me, my family, and several other passengers who arrived just after me with no ability to get boarding passes. We proceeded to the security area where we could see the Spirit reps who could have easily checked us in at that point. We spoke out to them asking for help but they simply looked down and ignored us. They told the TSA agents they would not come out till after the flight departed. Imagine how frustrating that was to hear. No other airline behaves like this. Later, my request for cancellation and refund was rejected because I missed the 45 minute window. I am out $544. I managed to get a flight with Delta that morning and was treated like royalty by comparison. The Delta flight was almost the same price to boot. Never again Spirit! Not worth saving a few pennies to be treated like that."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good. They made constant announcements as to the status of the flight and anticipated turbulence. The flight attendants were also good"
Cons: "Where to begin. You arrive at the airport to endless lines. There were three lines to check in and we learned eventually that one line was for Cuban flights. One for us and one for something else. However, the staff was rude and there was no signage indicating which was which. Then the baggage claim lady charged me $59 extra for my bag but then said that if I had had my friends check the bag I wouldn't have had to pay the fee. Of course then it was too late. Then the flight was delayed because the bad overbooked it. Finally at Boston our bags took forever to arrive and when they did the were soaking wet. I understand that Spirit is meant to be the economical carrier but that is no excuse for rude and incompetent staff. I heard SOO many people say they would never fly Spirit again. Get it together Spirit!"
Pros: "If you don't mind minimal leg room, seats that don't recline and high prices for low grade food, the crew was courteous, the plane was clean and we had a smooth flight that arrived on time! Hiccup We paid for our bags online the night before but the Kiosk said still owed the money. Very frustrating now having to now wait in the ticket line, and with holiday TSA long lines, we were the last ones to board the plane as the gate closed. That needs to be fixed. It we didn't make it you would have gotten a scathing review. $45 per carry-on is real steep though. However, all is well!"
Pros: "Totally so mad at check in on line 24 hours ahead of time - found out one piece of checked bags is $40, a carry on was another $20 and seat assignement was yet another fee. All this after buying a ticket! We had no idea there were so many other fees. The airport was was out of our way and we only booked the flight because the fare was lower. When we found at AT CHECK IN, 24 hours ahead of time about all the extr fees, we rebooked on another airline and said forget this airline, what a rip off! Never again will book this airline with all those hidden fees. It was excessive and not mentioned till check in. Bad business model!!"
Pros: "The plane was clean (looked new) and the crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "After having to pay to choose seats and paying over $400 in changes for luggage (2 people one carry on and one checked luggage each) we also had to pay for any beverage or snack on the plane. Also, apparently we didn't read carefully, though no one was able to point me in the correct direction, there is a limit to the weight on the checked luggage of 42lbs and we each were at 45lbs.... I'm aware of the 50lbs limit not 42. We had to over stuff our carry-ons after paying over $400 to even have checked luggage in the first place!! Otherwise we would have had to pay anther $100 for an additional carry-on. The seats are padded shells and, for long flights, can be uncomfortable. We ended up being over an hour late, there was no communication until the landing announcement."
Cons: "I had 2 tickets booked for Boston on November 17th at 5:58pm. I tried to check in online for both travelers, but according to Spirit Airlines website, you cannot check 2 tickets from the same account. When I arrived at BWI airport and went to the Spirit Airlines desk the lady told me that the flight is closed even though it was still not boarding time yet. I explained to her what happened and asked for cooperation, but she just kept repeating that flight is closed and next flight is in 2 days, which I couldn't wait for, because of the scheduled appointments that I had in Boston. In general the service was terrible and the website platform didn't work right. I had tk pay $250 dollars for last minute ticket while I already lost the money for the first two tickets."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours that they did not tell us about until we got to the gate because of 'air traffic', which should have been known ahead of time. Flight attendants were obviously tired and in a bad mood. Very small room in seat. The passenger behind me had her knees digging into my back the entire trip. A woman got too drunk and had to be moved to the front of the plane right in front of me because she was too intoxicated and out of hand. She was yelling and then threw up. It was overall one of the worst flights I've had in a very long time. It wasn't all Spirit's fault, but they didn't help the situations because you're paying for the "bare minimum"."
Cons: "Horrible Horrible airlines. First airline that I will make it a point to never fly again. They obviously are nickle and dime-ing everything, but more more predatory than that. Was warned by many on how to avoid this, but still ended up with $140 in extra fees and spent 30 mins on the phone to a foreign customer service line. Spirit changed the gate 20 minutes before boarding but kept the electronic signage same, so people arriving on time waiting at the original gate and missed their flight. With some repeated experience you may be able to to learn minimize you losses but honestly it is not worth this experience again. And if you search online, you will notice that this is a common experience with Spirit."
Cons: "Where do I begin? The price seemed reasonable until I arrived and they charged me $55 to CARRY-ON my bag. Would have been $55 to check it but I was afraid they would lose it. Then boarding the plane there was a sign saying "FIT CREW: We have the youngest crew of any airline". To me that says age discrimination and also inexperience. When I finally sat down, there was trash on my seat and also facial oil on the window. It was clear that they did not clean between flights. Sitting down, my seat was broken and reclined every time I leaned against it. I had a child about 5 years old behind me that was disturbing everyone in our area and the flight attendant never addressed the situation with their parent. When the child was slamming their tray up and down on the back of my seat, a stranger finally said something. Also, don't expect to even get water for free. $3 a pop! The landing was also extremely rough. Needless to say, I will never fly this airline again!"
Cons: "I fly a lot. I took spirit because of the great deal I got, but will never fly them again no matter what. I will pay more for a flight because of the poor customer service. My flight was cancelled after being delayed after 10 mins. This is was about my 10th time flying the airlines, I was trying to give them a chance, and every time have had serious problems. I work customer service and understand how annoying these message are and realize there will probably be nothing done about how I feel and the poor service I received, but really this was a horrible experience. Lucky I am savy at finding new flights. I stood in line to change mine while on the phone with spirit and lucky cancelled the flight with spirit. I had to rebook with a different airlines. The difference between the flight was $240. My husband rebooked it for me while I was on the phone with spirit. Never again will I fly this airlines, no matter what I do!"
Pros: "The cabin crew and pilot wert wonderful!"
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare! The self serve kiosk was at the counter and we had to wait in line with full service to even get to one, that took almost 40 minutes, then tsa had an unbelievably long line and took another hour! We got to the gate just in time for final boarding call. The flight crew announced they were going to close doors but changed their mind to continue "refueling" and let almost fifteen more people on! If I had been one of those people who got to the gate to be told boarding was completed I would have been furious! They needed to wait for those people, still it delayed our flight about 20 minutes. The flight itself was a little bumpy, definitely an economy airline."
Cons: "I called 10 days before my flight to cancel it due to a death in the family. I was told someone from management would call me within 5 day about the matter. I never heard back so I called the day before my flight and I was told once again that someone from management would call me within 5 days. They apologized that no one ever called me the first time. It's been 13 days since that last phone call and I still haven't heard back. Three tickets down the drain and no one ever called me back so I could at least pay the cancellation fee to get credit for another future flight. Horrible customer service!"
Cons: "We had the unfortunate experience of dealing Spirit Airlines yesterday at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, August 13th, on the way to Boston for a wedding. We were asked to check in at the kiosk, which we did. And after spending $412.36 on airline tickets in July, we had to pay $55 for one carry-on bag. After completing the transaction, we were notified that our boarding passes could not be printed and head to the desk. After speaking with their customer representative, "James", we were told the flight was closed and there was nothing he could do. He said the flights are non-refundable and we should have arrived sooner, although our receipt clearly shows we were there ahead of their 45 minute mark. We asked him for our $55 dollars back for the baggage and he said he'll need to get his supervisor. This is when "Carmen" the supervisor came to the station. Their names are in quotations because both employees refused to turn their badges over to show their names, which seems very shady at a security-centered facility like a main international hub airport. (I took photographs of both employees) She said she can not give us a refund and rudely pointed to our receipt to mention all baggage fees are non-refundable. We asked her why would Spirit even charge us a baggage fee for a flight they were not going to let us get on and she said she didn't know, but she can't help us. Neither employee offered any assistance to get us on another flight. We have contacted Spirit Airlines with the receipts showing the time and photographs of the employees, but I think this issue requires further assistance after reading multiple stories online dealing with this same airline. The fact that they are allowed to charge us for bags the day of, then not refund the money, while taking our flight fees, seems illegal. I urge you to take a look into their business practices. They have cost my family hundreds of dollars, with regards to hotel and rental car cancellations, lost traveling fees, time off work, and the main displeasure of missing a wedding!"
Pros: "Unfortunately there is nothing positive to say here."
Cons: "Sadly we had a horrible experience at the airport with the spirit staff. The customer service representative had over 60 people lined up against the wall, not allowing them to "check in" because of minor delay. They were then hand picking who they would let in line, based on their flight and boarding pass. In addition to this I didn't want to spend my day at the airport so I booked another flight home. THEN to realize HE made a mistake..... That was the flight delayed! I then had to ask for a refund and explain that he mixed up my flight. Had 40 min to make it through security at that point. It's been 3 weeks and still no refund. Never again!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 4.5 hours for no eal reason except poor management. They then boarded early and the agent left. We almost didn't get on and 5 of us were quite panicked. when we got on board we had to wait for maintenance...scary. next when we landed we had to wait 20 minutes becuase they don't have gates. I have a TSA number I filed with Spirit but, I ddin't get that because they don't have a system for it yet. We were supposed to arrive in Boston at 8:13Pm. We got there at 1:20 AM. The charge for one bag and if its' over 40 lbs they change another 30 dollars per bag. Most airlines allow 50lbs and no charge for the first bag. they charge for seat assignment ahead. You must get your boaridng pass ahead or I bleieve they charge you extra. It is unbelevable. I will never fly them again. When"
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "The bathrooms still didn't work even though it was a new plane. The seats didn't recline and there wasn't even a tray to put your things on. Not that we could get a complimentary beverage anyway. I had to charge a $3 Dixie cup of water. What a waste. Oh and they don't have barf bags, so don't be alarmed when someone throws up in the aisle. And when they do, because someone did on my flight, don't expect the flight attendants to know what to do - there isn't a protocol. They dumped coffee grounds on it and just left it there because they didn't have anything to clean it up with. We flew our entire redeye with the lights on with no bathrooms in seats that didn't recline, nauseated from the smell but too broke from all the other fees to be able to afford a drink. This airline is a ripoff."
Cons: "The check in process for horrific. We waited in line for more than an hour and we were at the front of a line that was at least 3 hours long. The counter was understaffed. Supervisors were not available. Counter staff told us the rest of the staff was "hiding in the back" because they did not want to deal with the problems out front. The seats were very uncomfortable and did not recline at all. It might have been worth it if the flight really was as cheap as the original price, but once you paid for your seat, checked bags, and carry on bags, the cost was comparable to the major airlines. Never again. We are considering buying one way tickets home at the counter for extreme amounts of money just to avoid flying home with them."
Cons: "My return flight ticket was cancelled because I did not take the initial flight to Las Vegas. I booked a different leaving flight from Boston because of a job interview and when I showed at the airport to make my return flight booked through Kayak on Spirit , I found out my ticket was cancelled. I was forced to purchase another ticket from another airline. This was concerning since Kayak sent me a reminder about my flight to tell me the flight time had changed. Horrible Customer service at Spirit. The guy i spoke with at the customer service counter said it was not his problem and walked away."
Cons: "So we get a call on the way to the airport saying the flight was cancelled.....followed by "Have a great Day :-) '. They offered to book us two days later on a different flight. What???...do they think I'm a sr. citizen with nothing to do but sit around for two days waiting for a flight? Completely ridiculous. I got a refund....but it was ridiculous. I know... I saw all the other reviews saying to "never book spirit"...plus I had another ridiculous experience on Spirit a couple years ago. But after two disasters, I now know to never book spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing good about this airline... It is a horrible airline run by rude inconsiderate people who try and rip you off with hidden fees and services! Their business motto is "Let's trick our customers into paying more and then lie to them when they ask simple questions" That's not a good way to run a company and quite frankly I don't understand how they're still in business.... See my bad review section for more details"
Cons: "The flights were delayed both ways on the round trip, the first flight by 3 hrs and the return flight 1 hour. Both flights were not delayed due to weather because it was nice out. Just poor management. Our return flight was delayed when I woke up that morning and all day it remained delayed on their website. Until 2 hrs before the flight it was switched back to ontime. We called Spirit to confirm and they said it was ontime. So we had to rush out of the house and skip the dinner my father in law made everyone because the airport is an hour away. We got to the airport only to find the flight was delayed on the board. We went to the gate and the Spirit employees kept assuring us the flight was not delayed even after the scheduled time the flight was suppose to leave they continued to lie and were completely dishonest with everyone on the flight. Very rude customer service and they would just ignore people and walk down the runway and shut the door so they wouldn't talk to us or give anyone an update. We could have gone and had dinner had they not lied to us about the departure time. Just the worst airline I've ever dealt with in my life... they may be cheap but you get what you pay for... and any upfront cost for the ticket is false advertising because once you purchase the ticket you then have to pay for a carry on bag, you have to pay to pick a seat on the plane, you have to pay to check in when you're at the airport, and you have to pay for any services on the plane including the "complimentary drink or snack." Their seats on the plane do not recline at all to make things more comfortable either. I will never fly them again and I warn anyone else who might think saving $50 on the ticket price is worth it cause they get it back in the end and then some!"
Pros: "Cheap flight, no waiting to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed, but the gate agent did not seem to know about it and the email was sent well after the scheduled boarding time. It was completely unnecessary for me to run through the airport. The same thing happened the last time I flew from BWI to Logan with Spirit."
Cons: "The flight attendants were totally unprofessional. After falling asleep during taken off, what sounded like a rowdy brunch with too many mimosas woke me up. It turned out to be four flight attendants hanging out in the rear of the plane chatting very loudly. They were certainly the loudest people on this 6:30 am flight. They were much louder than the three young unattended minor boys on the flight. It sounded like they were having a great time. They were even swapping "funny" stories about passengers from previous flights. I could have slept despite the uncomfortable non-reclining seats on this flight but the flight attendant party made it it impossible. I am sure I was not the only one. Everyone in the back 5 rows was awake. The most unprofessional customer service I have ever experienced. On another note, the spirit website that one must use to check in for free is a pain. The mobile version does not work properly and the password reset link doesnt workl"
Cons: "I had never flown spirit before and I will never fly with them again. First off the pricing they advertise is completely misleading. I purchased my ticket thinking I was saving some money compared to other airlines to only find out that they slap you with a million other fees. You need to pay to bring a carry on, you need to pay for non-alcoholic beverages even water. By the time all of these added up and I was in the middle of my flight sitting in not to mention the most uncomfortable seats with no leg room and no ability to recline for over 5 hours, the total cost was equal to if not greater a flight on my usual go to airlines, American/US."
Cons: "My flight (414 on July 1st) was scheduled to depart around 6PM. Poor weather was forecasted for Boston but had not yet delayed any flights. An earlier flight at that gate to Atlanta had not left because of smell of raw sewage on the plane. Our plane was re-assigned to the Atlanta flight (which was about 4 hours late in departing). Our flight was delayed. And then due to the increasingly poor weather in Boston ended up cancelled with no new flights being available until more than 24 hours later. Because our flight (and not the Atlanta flight) was cancelled because of weather, we were not offered any recourse except to either reschedule or get a refund. It seemed obvious to everyone that a decision had been made to ensure that the Atlanta flight was not the one cancelled since it would have resulted in some type of compensation to the ticket holders. Had our flight left on schedule, we would have missed the bad weather as other airlines were still landing in Boston when our flight was scheduled to land. Will never fly with Spirit again and would highly recommend avoiding this airline to anyone else. Never did find out why the plane smelled of raw sewage either (which is also concerning as well)."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We were told that our flight was delayed, with no explanation. Then, we were told it was weather. However, weather in Boston was clear and then slightly stormy. They said it was a 'ground stop' which is for severe weather. People waiting for passengers in Boston said that the weather was not severe. Then, after waiting for hours, with a plane at our gate, our flight was canceled, without explanation. People received conflicting information from, a cabin pressure issue, to a severe smell aboard the plane, to a ground stop in Boston. Spirit could not book us on another flight or a different airline until potentially late the next day (we didn't wait in the 2-hour line to find out). This is the last time I will fly with Spirit. Budget tickets shouldn't mean budget service and lies."
Pros: "Crew stayed friendly despite an annoying delay. Information about the delay was first shared quickly (by the pilot I think)."
Cons: "After not even boarding before our departure time and then being told to deboard and wait two hours, there were several concerns. 1) The staff who handled boarding weren't articulate in the process and came off rude. 2) By the time we deboarded, all the kitchens were closed and even snack places were closing. So everyone who was now upset and hungry. 3) When it was time to board again, no announcement was made over the loud speaker, despite several of us getting confirmation that would happen when we first got off. 4) If it was my company, and I would have noticed the terminal was closing the shops and would have offered complimentary beverages to passengers during the flight. Almost everyone I talked to or overheard directly expressed their dissatisfaction with Spirit airlines and vowed they would not be using them again. An unexpected free soda would have been a cheap way for you to sway some people to give it another shot."
Cons: "Customer service was absolutely terrible. I thought that the walk-up fee for luggage would be $35/45 but when it was $50 I gave a shocked expression. Which, that's fine if it was advertised that way (I'm sure it was). But when the lazy desk attendant, who was doing nothing but holding a wall up, says "I can't believe people are shocked when you tell them that, it's like come on you know." I'm fine with you saying that when I'm gone, but when people are standing right there and can hear you while you are acting like they aren't even standing there....that is when you have a customer service issue. Although I wanted to lash into him, I felt like it wasn't worth it and much below my level, and I apologize for not gathering that person's name so you may address this properly. Understandable that there are delays, but there shouldn't be a delay EVERY time that a person fly's on a certain airline. I'll try to print tickets online and it says error, but then need to have a discussion about why I am not paying $10."
