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."

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: "The food"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but we had a long delay because of weather"
Pros: "No complaints at all. Comfortable and on time."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Attendants not friendly. The seat pocket had chewed gum on magazine. Trays were dirty when I turned on the light- looked like blood. Will not fly American anymore."
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "Real nice people at check in and flight crew was really nice"
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Pros: "Direct Flight from LAX to RDU on a redeye."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours at LAX. Boarded on time, waited at gate for 1.5 hours and then had to get off. During our delay waiting for a 1st Officer, the Captain times out. NO BACKUP CAPTAINS or 1st OFFICERS AT LAX? Then miraculously during our 3rd hour waiting for a Captain they discovered the 1st Officer was going to time out. So, rather than KNOW this while searching for a Captain, they waited for 3 hours and then had to find a 1st Officer to fill in. Result 2.5 more hours of delay. Even the Flight crew was in disbelief on this one. I think we should all get reimbursed and triple miles for this snafu. Not weather or mechanical - just poorly managed time -- BY A MAJOR AIRLINE - INEXCUSABLE!"
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours due to mechanical issues"
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 served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are toght. Just an inch more would have made a long flight much better."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."

Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "huge delay 7 hours??????????????? I ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the airport"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Bad seating system you can have a front of plane seat, but be boarded last. That creates personal items from being able to be placed near your seat and forced to put in bins at back of plane. That means waiting for entire plane to unboard before getting personal items"
Pros: "Getting there"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours bc flight attendant didn't show up"
Cons: "Missed this flight because of missing the first flight"
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Flight delay, awful boarding, had to switch planes, no entertainment, no free wifi"
Cons: "Flight delayed on tarmac for almost an hour. No air during delay. Seats are not very comfortable."
Cons: "My flight that had been scheduled for months was cancelled out of the blue and when I spoke to American it was for scheduled maintenance. So which was scheduled first? I would assume my flight. Lost a whole day of vacation. Thoroughly irate."
Pros: "Staff friensly"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes the last when we were already were to start boarding Aircraft seating had some issues."
Cons: "No way to charge a cell phone during the flight. No chargers at the airport waiting area for the flight. There was a metal box under the seat in front of me so i could not out my bag there, could not even fit my feet there."
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
Pros: "Honestly - nothing!"
Cons: "Old 767 with very tight seating configuration made it impossible to et comfortable. The crew seemed generally pissed, especially outbound from RDU. Food was awful! Pretty much a Greyhound bus ride to London and back."
Pros: "I like it every thing about the flight I always find the suitable timing and cheapest fares. I always get a rental car at the airport. This is the best traveling service ever."
Cons: "Running behind schedule."
Pros: "The crew had excellent customer service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth-uneventful"
Pros: "Everything was well run, the usual jam to get on the plane but that's a USAir tradition."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long lay over, could not get access to finair web site to get upgrade."
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Pros: "We paid to upgrade to economy plus for the extra leg room which made the flight more comfortable."
Cons: "Seats do not recline"
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "We were crammed in like sardines"
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Made me check my carry on to destination when lots of people had carry one same size as mine"
Pros: "I liked the check-in and waiting area at the airport."
Cons: "I did not like that we had to walk so much to the new gate assignment."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking were quite painful with an overcrowded plane and most passangers carrying on huge bags. What happened to shoulder bags only for carry on?"
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Crew, timing"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours after a 5 hour layover."
Pros: "Nice seats and lots of space"
Cons: "Rude crew on board"
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."

Cons: "Fully booked plane"
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "The personal tv"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very small seats, no leg room."
Cons: "The gentleman beside me had 2 children with him but only purchased 2 seats. He and his children were in my lap and kicking me the entire time. It was a full flight so I couldn't change seats. I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."
Pros: "Good just hate middle seat."
Cons: "The 2 people in front of me were told they'd have to check their bags, as was I. They boarded with the bags and I saw that there was plenty of room in the overhead bins for mine too. I could have avoided the baggage claim wait. If you make this determination then it should be enforced. Next time I too will carry on my tagged bag"
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."
Cons: "Boarding took so long between all the kids which i think could have moved faster. The seats are always tight without much room. I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."

Pros: "Lots of room"

Pros: "The landing was good."
Cons: "Spirit is horrible. Poor service, poor comfort, hidden fees. None of their agents care about resolving problems. Will never be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "The Crew Was Amazing and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable because they are to straighten up and at least they should not charge for sodas or water but other then that it was a great flight ✈️"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then we were stuck on the plane for an hour, had to get off the plane, was told it would be an hour, then 5 minutes and back on the plane-only to sit there for another hour!! And we were refused any snacks or beverages-even when we said we would pay!"
Cons: "No issues just a little turbulence."
Cons: "Prices too high, service too low. Had to sit on the tarmac 30 minutes waiting for a gate on arrival to Detroit after flight delay of 5 hours"
Pros: "Crew is nice."
Cons: "Seats don’t recline- none of them. Pay extra for everything- every bag-even carry on- picking a seat, even water! Ends up costing the same and it’s uncomfortable."
Pros: "decent size plane with wide walking aisle, friendly staff"
Cons: "I will not fly the airline again due to the cheap quality seats, discomfort and lack of any entertainment. not to mention all the additional costs/fees they have separated from the cost of the flight."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 5 hours and when asked there was no reason."

Pros: "I like that I have a choice because I will never choose this airline EVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Bag fees were $50/bag each way. So I paid over $200 in bag fees MOST UNCOMFORTABLE PLANE IN THE WORLD. Like sitting on metal for 3+ hours (Chicago -> Fort Lauderdale) Crew spends more time selling you credit cards than anything Boarding was a mess both ways (no organization) Now I know why the plane was 50% empty both ways Tray tables kept falling down throughout flight Seatbelt was twisted and didn't really work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but we weren't given timely updates. In fact, we received a "We're sorry" email offering a nominal voucher before we were told updates about the details of the delay."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Late taking off (30+ minutes), way too cramped"
Pros: "No delays both ways was nice"
Cons: "If we wanted a drink or a small snack, we had to pay. I did not know that we had to pay for our carry on bag. I thought our flight cost was a steal until we had to pay for our bags. We had to spend $90 for both ways."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "everything was great."
Cons: "Seats, the delays, the lack of care in employees, charging for everything, no free water (this should be illegal) etc"
Pros: "The fare was cheap."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than an hour because of de-icing at Detroit."
Pros: "Smooth flight, in time"
Cons: "Dirty seat"
Cons: "Beware of the baggage cost! Checked bags have to be under 40lbs or you pay extra (other airlines are 50 lbs). You have to pay for carry on luggage! Luggage fee is 50.00 per bag BEWARE! You think you are saving money but you are not! Seats are no frills and very uncomfortable! No drink service so bring your own!"
Pros: "The crew was all wonderful. You've hired great people!"
Cons: "You charge for carry on bags and snacks and drinks in flight?!?! And the try tables for the back few rows were too tiny to use for anything! I felt like I was tricked into booking with a low fare, and then you nickle and dime everything to make up the difference... Also, BOTH of my flights were delayed..."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Cons: "To start, I booked a hotel room close to the airport and upon my arrival at eight thirty in the evening I explained to the reception that I would need a shuttle at 5.15 in the morning..she then told me the shuttle didn't start till eight , so anyway I get a cab and arrive at 6 and as I approached the counter to get my boarding pass the lady blurted out with joy you're late and we have to rebook you. I said my flight was leaving at 6:30 she responded with a smile and pointed to a sight 45 minute before flight sight in required.. so a200 ticket ended up coating me double and I had to Waite in the airport 5 hours and go to Fort Lauderdale and wait there for another 4 hours.. I will never spend a dime on spirit again.. one bag 50 dollars , greedy,rudeness,just all around uglyou!!"
Cons: "Low budget nickel and dime experience"
Cons: "I had an Isle seat and the person next to me was 6 foot plus and approx 300 lbs. I had to sit with one side turned because his body was so far into my space I could not sit straight back. I ended up with a cricket in my neck and back as a result. They should akermann people like that buy two seats. He was so overweight he had to keep his head resting against the seat in front most of the trip."
Cons: "I had to use the bathroom when I got off the plane. When I got to the baggage claim, my bag was no where to be found and no representative was available. I was having spirit paged, but no one ever came. Worse, I've called twice now and still no one has called me back."
Pros: "Efficient, fast"
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Cons: "Everything. Literally. Worst flying experience of my life and I've flown hundreds of times. It's not even that inexpensive after all the extras (and they just keep coming). Plus the new "fleet" is so cramped it's unreal. I had to turn my head to drink out of my water bottle. Awful. Never again."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is the joke of the major airlines. I have flown a countless number of times using every US airline. I have issues with Spirit, but this takes the cake. After arriving over 90 minutes early to my flight and waiting patiently at the gate, an announcement was made through the overhead paging system. Flight 781 is cancelled and refunds can be received at the baggage claim. Unsure of what this exactly meant I went to baggage claim where I was told to get in line behind a hundred other people waiting for one service agent to help. I called Spirit's 800 number to speak with an agent only to find out that they were unable to re-route my trip and that the only options were to travel the following week (missing out on my prepaid rooms, etc.) or get my money back... In short that's not how an airline should handle a customer. Being a low cost airlines does not excuse poor service."
Cons: "That I had to pay for every little thing and the baggage price is too high."
Cons: "The fact that you charge for everything, I couldn't even get water when I was coughing .. I WILL NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN!"
Cons: "That the seat assigned to me was in a row that didn't have reclining seats. I have a neck injury and it was quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "My flight from DC was canceled due to maintenance and there was not another one for three days, so I was forced to cancel this trip. Additionally, I was unaware that Spirit charges for normal carry-on luggage, which is typically free on other airlines. Their fee for a single bag (carried on) is over $45.00."
Pros: "The male flight attendant did a great job. Pilot and co-pilot were courteous and friendly when we boarded and disembarked."
Cons: "The flight attendants, the women, had nothing to do. They were just standing in the back talking, loudly for the entire flight. Everyone was annoyed. Seats in the back are tight. People just want to rest and their loud voices made that impossible."
Pros: "Not crashing"
Cons: "Late schedule, last bags, rude airport personnel"
Cons: "My tray table was broken, AC vent didn't open, smelly fat guy was basically On top of me, stewardess didn't care at all, wouldn't get me water...I could go on and on."
Pros: "No entertainment or food. Don't know how to say N/A on those sections."
Cons: "Prechwck on my computer was a pain. Had rTo get a PIN number (or some #), that I didn't have and the link wouldn't send it. Spent way too much time trying to check in on my computer. Everything else was smooth sailing."
Pros: "Liked the speedy boarding process, the relatively cheap price of the ticket"
Cons: "Planes were delayed (on the way to destination, and the return flight). Each time over an hour delay. Seats very uncomfortable and on top of that don't recline, so one can hardly sleep on the longer flights (I have no problem sleeping in uncomfortable places, but this one was torture)."
