Cons: "Yes specially the food"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "Lots of passenger we were cold we needed a blanket and there were no more ."
Pros: "Got the emergency exit seats, extra leg room"
Cons: "Choice of food"
Cons: "The particular seat I was in was horrible."
Pros: "The entertainment and food!"
Cons: "Not having to wait 4.5 hrs due to mechanical issues :("
Cons: "Delays, no communication, missed connections."
Cons: "Just awful!!!! Original lay over was 2 hours in Cartagena it became 7 hours. Missed my rental car. Missed my first day at the hotel Los recuerdos!! Just awful. I need something done."
Pros: "World's worst business class both directions. I can honestly say I have never had worst airline food. There is no level of service. You don't get a drink for 90 minutes into flight ithen the flight attendants height for the rest of the flight and never come out again in Business."
Cons: "Try bringing drinks around. Refill the bar. Provide cups."
Cons: "Avianca one of the best airline"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed the flight by 7 hours and there wasn’t an available gate when we landed. We had to wait another hour to deplane"
Cons: "I did not like how during reservation, you cannot put a space between the two words in the first name or last name. For example, I was forced to put "MariaAlejandra" as the first name instead of "Maria Alejandra". I had to call the airlines and go through a hassle to ensure there will be no problems boarding the plan because of this minor name difference."
Pros: "SPACE, FOOD, ENTERTAINMENT ALL GOOD"
Pros: "This was the second time I was flying on this flight and it was great. Crew was awesome on the plane"
Cons: "Avianca overbooked the flight by 10 passengers. They would not board the flight until they got 10 volunteers to except only $240 voucher for delaying their flight by one day. It took them three hours to accomplish that. The hot food had been delivered on time to the plane, so that also sat for three hours. By the time it was served during the flight it had turned to rubber. This was all together a dreadful experience. We missed our connecting flight in Los Angeles and Avianca airlines provided no help on that. ."
Pros: "This airline was horrible with crew that was highly unkind and stole our duty free products."
Cons: "Crew, service, poor attitude, inability to help passengers. Never retrieved duty free products that we paid for."
Pros: "Movie selection was good, power outlets were helpful."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and there just isn't enough leg room to relax especially when person in front of you puts seat back."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have had the pleasure to take. Thank you so much! The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Cant complain! After taking this flight I will definitely look for more flights with your airline!"
Pros: "They put me on an early flight to ensure to have more time for the flight Bogota to Rio de Janeiro"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The plane is amazing"
Cons: "Crew was uptight and not responsive, food was awful and there was no vegetarian option,"
Pros: "Spacious aircraft with entertainment system"
Cons: "Check-in took more than one hour even though only few people were in front of me"
Cons: "Too many delays and cancellation of my direct flight causing a new route which included a layover. Avianca has become increasingly unreliable. Their in flight services used to include food and now only refreshments are provided. Even in the business class section you are only provided with drinks. I would caution people and look for other airlines."
Cons: "Airline employees at gate did not take the time to search passenger return flight in system, despite return being through Avianca and easy to find. This led to passenger missing flight. They ended up finding it after the missed flight and placing passenger in the following day's flight."
Pros: "I liked the food and caring staff."
Pros: "Service, food & comfort are unmatched! staff kind & professional. couldnt ask for more."
Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Cons: "Called "customer service" and they changed my tickets. Tried to rebook 3 times but each time was a problem and lost each of the 3 reservations because they can't take payments. They should not have changed anything to begging with. It's a trap! Now I have to figure out how to get my money back."
Cons: "lots of turbulence/ storms didn't get movies or food or earsets etc for a couple of hours!"
Pros: "Seats are great, food is delicious"
Cons: "Flights don't have wifi, entertainment selection is extremely limited"
Pros: "Prompt service"
Cons: "For the amount of money paid for business class the quality of food should be an embarrassment. Not to mention the quality of movies and variety offered."
Pros: "The check in staff moved us to an earlier flight from Cartegna to Bigots so we wouldn't have to rush to make our Bogita to New York flight. Very nice of them & much appreciated. We flew Avianca 8 times over the past 11 days thru Peru & Colombia & had great experiences all the way around."
Pros: "The attention"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "efficient flight, good/helpful flight attendants, arrived early, great flight"
Cons: "poor soft drink selection, mediocre food"
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Pros: "Pasta plate was delicious"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour Crew Service: 1) Asked for pillow twice and they told me to go find a chair with an empty one 2) Asked crew for a glass of wine and she told me that next time that I go to restroom I can ask for one Upon arrival there was no gate ready so we had to wait longer to get shuttled to Tom Bradley Terminal and there was no communication of this Terminal change (from 2 to Tom Bradley)"
Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful, too slow for this type of service :("
Pros: "Services was Pleasant, good"
Cons: "Food could be improved and beverages option"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time, the on board service was awesome!!!!"
Pros: "Speed of boarding and friendly crew"
Pros: "Seats, food, entertainment."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "This is my second Avianca flight. Both times the flights were not full, yet both times my seat was in front of an exit row so I could not recline. A red eye overnight flight while sitting up perfectly straight is horribly uncomfortable. I do not understand why I was placed in this seat when there were other available options. This should be communicated to the customer when placing him in that seat, and a discount should be provided. I am requesting a partial refund, very unnecessarily uncomfortable flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Business class not worth it at all. Seats don't recline and there is next to no separation from main cabin with its crying babies."
Pros: "The seat comfort and staff especially the captain - very engaging"
Cons: "WiFi on the airplane to access flight map and other services."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and my seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was awesome."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable. This was a night flight, so I would have loved if they turned off the lights during the flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was quashed beside a large stranger. The seats were not wide enough."
Pros: "Even thou the flight was packed everything boarding, unboarding and the overall flight went very smoothly."
Cons: "There were a couple of “companion dogs“ in the flight. Personally I think that dogs should not travel in the passengers cabin except in very particular situations, but lately it seems to be becoming a trend."
Pros: "The ride was great"
Cons: "Couldn't get home earlier"
Cons: "This way the worst travel experience I have ever had. Arrival/departure with Kopa was the make unorganized thing I have ever witnessed in all of my travels. I literally felt like a prisoner during the boarding process while getting absolutely no communication from staff."
Pros: "Staff was so nice when I felt sick and kept asking if I was ok. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The process of getting on the plane was terrible. Once getting though gate security there really should be access to water, a restroom and ac. Also out of group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It seemed unfair that we couldn’t all have been moved up as a group."
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the tv in the seat"
Cons: "I did not like how the plane does not have WiFi. Also I had an issue with the food. I was seating in row 30 which is the back of the plane. They started the food in the front so by the time it got to the back we did not have an option. I don’t understand why their isn’t enough of the 2 options."
Pros: "A better flight experience than my MGA-PYT flight. Good entertainment system, simple, intuitive and best of all functional. Cabin crew was good about keeping passengers well hydrated without needing to remind them. Did provide sufficient food. Service was attentive,"
Cons: "Since I sat at the extreme back, by the time meal service arrived at my location they had run out of the chicken option. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "I asked for vegetarian meals & didn't get it. I asked for seats not on the wing and got the wings all my flights. Not happy, bad service"
Pros: "communication about flight; service (Food was excellent);"
Pros: "The crew was attentive & good; my meal was good and I enjoyed the wine served. my seat was comfortable to sit in."
Cons: "For business class, I expected my seat to recline more. The footrest didn't extend much, and it wasn't really conducive to sleeping... my feet/legs were very uncomfortable. I expected better than that. Also, I tried to use the entertainment screen & it didn't work well; then it froze & wouldn't work at all."
Cons: "Copa needs to start letting customers choose seats a head of time, for my second leg the system didn't allow me to do so when I checked in the day before, therefore I got a seat didn't want."
Pros: "The food was great, taste.Thank you"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Service on the plane very noce"
Cons: "Planes need uodating"
Pros: "Overall service was great"
Cons: "My return flight had me seating separately from my girlfriend that I was traveling with"
Pros: "Everything but the bathroom."
Cons: "The bathroom situation. Long line to use the bathroom and they will not let you used the one in first class."
Pros: "Love the crew."
Cons: "Apparently there’s no way of actually securing a seat because they don’t have some, sort of system for it? At least that’s what I was told. I got on last and my seat had been taken. BUT the crew were very helpful and reseated me with an aisle seat like I’d wanted. So really, not a complaint but a thanks for making sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "Crew members were polite, the food was good, more entertainment options"
Cons: "Felt like the AC was not working correctly, it was very warm and people were sweating until we arrived to LAX"
Cons: "They ran out of food options as it go at to the back of the plane."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, easy connections."
Cons: "The crew looks tired. The crew was not nice. They don't smile."
Pros: "The staff/flight crew was amazing. Films and music selection were great and best of all free. Food and drinks came around at the perfect time."
Cons: "The area we were in before and during boarding made it a bit of a hassle because we didn't have access to the sitting area until right before boarding time. It took a while to get into the sitting area."
Cons: "The Bathroom has paper toilet used in the toilet paper place. The girl was talking in Spanish and English but not friendly at all. Also we went to the gate and we could not pass with water that we bought in the airport to the gate and was not another option to get water once that you get to the gate. Not a good trip at all."
Cons: "Apparently, the flight was over booked. Some passengers were offered a happy meal to give up their seat. WTF! I noticed some passengers were assigned to seat that doesn't exist. WTF! It was a complete mess. Food options, there wasn't any. I am glad, I ate before the flight."
Pros: "Service, food and very clean airplane."
Cons: "We like this airline"
Cons: "Worst airline of all time. Booked my flight several months ago. Attempted to check in the day prior to my flight but Copa's website was not working. Website was not working for 7 of the girls I was with either. Arrived to the airport over 2 hours early to ensure time for check in. Was told I no longer had a seat on the flight. Copa over booked the flight by 9 people. Was put on standby and luckily made it onto first leg of flight but they again took my seat away for the next leg of the trip. VERY upset. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Got off the ground quick"
Cons: "We had to sit on the tarmac taxiing for almost 20-25 mins and I had a connecting flight I easily could've missed had it taken much longer"
Pros: "Food and drinks on even short flights Very efficient and friendly crew"
Pros: "Good seats, entertainment, crew, flying time and on schedule. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "We had to go through security 3 times, our flight was delayed 1.5 hours and we were not allowed to bring water on the plane. We have also been taxing on the runway for 30mins so I missed my transfer home. I would likely never fly cops again."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "I don't understand why we go through security and then need to clear out of the gate and go through security all over again. That was strange to me"
Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. Poor variety of movies to choose from. Not enough options of movies and TV shows to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing."
Pros: "Friendly staff was there all along the flight. There wasn't a moment where the crew members weren't making sure you needed something."
Cons: "The recently released movies selection was very limited other airlines have a bigger selection of movies"
Pros: "The crew of Copa Airlines were very cordial and professional."
Cons: "Crew not attentive enough. Pilot overshot the runway while landing at LAX and had to reroute causing delays."
Pros: "On time, Good Food and attention from the crew."
Cons: "No pude reclinar el asiento. Estaba roto. Asiento 27F"
Cons: "The cabin is very dirty and the ear phone ad touch screen doesn't work properly"
Pros: "Food was good but the amount was small. They made an effort to accimodate passangers very comfotably. Timely and corteous."
Cons: "They could ofer pellows and blanckets."
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendants. Entertainment didn't work. Purchased two tickets but were not able to sit next to one another although we had confirmed assigned seats next to each other. For long flights, these things make a difference."
Pros: "Great inflight service"
Cons: "15 minutes waiting in line for boarding"
Pros: "Good service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Got sat next to a fat person both on the way down there and in the way back."
Cons: "The most unprofessional crew I have ever encountered."
Pros: "Gostei do atendimento da tripulação a bordo da aeronave"
Cons: "A atendente trocou os nomes das malas embarcadas"
Pros: "see first message"
Cons: "see first message"
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great seats like always aren’t comfy"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "WiFi on both ways was not working"
Cons: "The constant updates on delays was pretty miserable."
Pros: "Room pretty good!"
Cons: "More walking room!!long flight!"
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Pros: "The crew were fine, not their fault for sure."
Cons: "5 hour delay. That about says it all. All due to late flight crew from weather elsewhere, having them being taken offline because of long hours, trying to find new people, having a jetway break. Having to sit on a plane in the terminal for more than an hour with no air and stifling heat, taken off the plane and back on. All for a non-stop flight from Boston to LA. Definitely not fun."
Cons: "No food served on a 5+ hour flight...you had to pay extra for it and it didn't look like it was worth it. You also had to pay to choose your seat to be with other members of your group....this is all after paying for the flight itself! For the trip to Ireland from LA, for a group of 6, it was another $1000+! Just another way to get a few more bucks because they can! :("
Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Thank you and keep up the great work"
Cons: "My seat was broken"
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Cons: "More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "The entire plane crew to the ground crew did their best with a situation that was out of their control. The luggage door would not close, so we had an apps 4 hour delay"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Cons: "I hated that my flight got delayed for over an hour and I was not informed of this delay. I had people waiting at the airport to pick me up so it would've been beneficial for me to know of the delay."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Cons: "Not allowed single single baggage,"
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."
Pros: "First flight in six years. Had a great time."
Pros: "Not really nada!!"
Cons: "Like I say change me two times !! $74.00 and $94.72"
Pros: "Friendliness On time"
Cons: "Seats offer too little room...coffee was not good compared to that served on competitors carriers."
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Cons: "With Spirit airlines, I paid $57 for a carry on bag... They even charged for water... $18 to pick your seat or let them randomly pick your seat. Theres was I see now why the ticket, was cheap, because you pay for EVERYTHING else... And I do mean EVERYTHING! I normally fly with United, but I found this cheap ticket and got baited in. NEVER AGAIN!!!! Ill pay the extra money for comfort on a 5 hr flight. NEVER AGAIN SPIRIT!!!"
Cons: "Great flight - arrived early, super nice airplane, friendly attendants"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the plane didn't explode midair, and that it got me to my final destination in one piece. Spirit knows how to do that."
Cons: "I don't like sitting in airplanes for long periods of time, mostly because I can't get comfortable. Aside from first class seating, every airline's economy seats feel like medieval torture devices. It's what I expect, so no harm done."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Cons: "They were several hours late which they blamed on construction at LAX"
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
Pros: "The professionalism and kindnesses of the crew."
Cons: "Al-la-cart pricing and sardine seating is ruining the air travel experience."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Cons: "Pilot were on strike and put everyone on a Saturday out. Meaning, no flights available till Monday and no help due to their issues. Paying last minute hotel in Vegas on a Saturday is hell, especially at 9pm. I had the last flight. My siblings warned me of how Spirit is the worst airline...and I have to agree. Worst airline!"
Cons: "flight was canceled when we were already on the way to airport"
Cons: "Seats arms are constricting on sides. Doesn't allow much movement to turn comfortably too one side."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. They don't recline at all and almost lean you forward so you have to hunch. Would have been tolerable for the price, but all the extra tacked on fees were irritating and about deceptive."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in my entire life I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "1. Cheap tickets. The catch? You have to pay for carry-ons. Depending when you pay for it, you can end paying for carry-on more than the cost of the ticket. 2. Do you have TSA pre? Doesn't matter because they do not partner with TSA pre so you will end in the slow checkpoint. 3. You couldn't print your boarding pass? Bad news, they do not support Apple wallet or electronic boarding pass. 4. You want to check your luggage or print your ticket at the counter? They are only available for 4 blocks of ~ two hours during the day (SEA). 5. Can't choose your seat unless you pay extra. I prefer to pay twice rather than fly on Spirit again."
Pros: "I managed restaurants for years, so I want to start off by saying I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to mistakes. 4 out of the 5 flights I've mistakenly subjected myself to with Spirit have been absolutely atrocious in every way imaginable. This one was so horrible I can't even type the story in fear I'll start to relive it. Trust me and please let my pain and suffering be reconciled through saving you the pain of walking in the shoes of a Spirit Airlines customer. If ever considering a flight with Spirit...just say no. If for some crazy reason they draw you in with a price, schedule, airport location, or any other reason or combination of reasons...I promise you, it isn't worth it. Even if the flight is free, you'll feel cheated and short changed in the end after you overcome the shear disbelief that any company could survive operating the way they do. And if you're still considering Spirit at this point, I wish you luck...you'll need plenty of it. They're mediocre 20^ of the time. If you're flight is like the greater 80% of my experiences, Lord help you."
Cons: "Everything but the color yellow in their logo. And PS, any of these good reviews have got to be friends and family. Spirit Airlines couldn't hit a 10 on their best day. Virgin can hit a 10, but Spirit...their top end can't be higher than a 4"
Pros: "This flight was easy and cheap. I went online beforehand and added a back plus printed out my boarding pass - so no extra charges. Simple!"
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight ever. Seats don't recline, very little leg room; not a great situation when the entire flight had nothing but turbulence. Bad taste when you now have to pay for every and any bag. No entertainment, nothing complimentary...Unfortunate."
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Good Equipment, Airbus 319. Prompt take off and on time landing, both directions. Good fares, but a little tricky on the baggage. Assigned seating... even though we went with assigned seating, we still got to sit together, both directions! All issues considered, I would fly Spirit again, and I will encourage others to do so as well! Patrick"
Cons: "Had an issue paying extra for the baggage. Even though my credit is excellent, my card was rejected, so I had to call a rep from Spirit to make arrangements on the same card. This took an hour and a half on the computer... who knows why? Once I spoke w/ the rep, it was wrapped up in 10 minutes. Patrick"
Pros: "Nothing. The crew is rude and the gate staff in Chicago are some of the meanest, most unbelievably careless people I have met in my 20 years of constant travel"
Cons: "I don't like when planes leave before they are scheduled to leave with my luggage. We were standing at the gate 15 minutes before the departure time but they had already given our seats away"
Cons: "Spirit should not be allowed to advertise their "ticket price" as such on these websites, since for any round trip carryon baggage starts at $90 additional, as well as additional charges for most seats that offer any comfort at all, since the seats do not recline and the tray table support cross-bar pushes into the back of the passenger on front of it. This is only the beginning of my complaints"
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "Just the crew was polite"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled so we got rescheduled to early morning, not good with 2yr child"
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Pros: "Hard to like anything when I was already in a bad mood because of the delay."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. I had to wait with my daughter and mother for 3 hours until we finally boarded at 1AM."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."
Cons: "They charge you for absolutely everything. They make the tickets cheap and then don't tell you that everything has a fee. The fees are more than the tickets. Never flying with them ever again. My flight was also delayed."
Pros: "The Crew was nice."
Cons: "They have cheaper Tickets than any other Airline, but they make their money through everything else. One suitcase is 38$, you have no carry-on free, carry-ons are even more expensive than a regulär suitcase. You just get one Personal item free, not more. Was on a Five hour flight to LA and got nothing. No food, not even water. For everything I had to pay. They don't have WiFi, no on board entertainment. The seats was small and uncomfortable. Oh and in teirs suitcases they just allow 18 kg, not 23 like everyone else. So I had 24 kg and they charged me 55$ for they overweight. Their Tickets might be cheap, but in the end for me it would have been better flying with another Airline."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, I am 6'5" tall and there was no option to upgrade to a seat with more leg room both of my knees are bruised from the constant rubbing of the seat in front of me on my knee caps. You have to pay for any food water snacks that you'd like. The flight was way oversold as well"
Pros: "The crew was nice. . If you are traveling extremely light (just a backpack or purse), Spirit is a good deal, but......"
Cons: "Travelers have to pay for water on the flight. Why not also charge a few bucks to use the bathroom while you're at it? The $55 for a carry on bag should be made more clear up front. Once you add in the a la carte costs, flying on Sprit costs the same"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great. Friendly, polite quick. Too bad they were like cops dealing with people that would not turn off their phones or stay in their seats."
Cons: "The Spirit counter had 2 people working and no customers. Would not give me a seat number. Gate agent had 40 people in line and was by herself. Seems odd to hold up people boarding while I got in line to get my seat number. Also the baggage fee really does suck. $50+ for a carry on was cheapest option. Passengers caused issues the whole time. Police called and met them on exit from the plane. Frontier is the better way to go out of the two sister airlines."
Pros: "The crew members were upbeat, polite, and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are too damn small. The person in back of me was kneeing me in the back. I couldn't even lower the tray table all the way down without hitting my knees. I know that more people per flight means lower fares, but you guys have pushed it too far. This was maybe the most uncomfortable flight of my life. Beyond the shitty seats, I couldn't check in to my flight using the website. It kept rejecting my password. I tried to reset my password and I kept getting error messages. So annoying."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating. This was the worst flying experience imaginable. I get that you're the cheapest airline and all but the little bit of money saved to have to sit in such an awe fully uncomfortable seat doesn't make it worth it. I will probably fly another airline next time just because of that"
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Cons: "I took Spirit airlines years ago in an emergency. It was a terrible experience then. Mostly due to comfort and the condition of the airplane. It felt like we were sitting in a bare plastic container. The fare for this last trip appealed to me until I went to check in and was charged an extraordinary amount for checking a bag and for bringing a carry on on the plane. And then the charge to pick a seat? Please... the fare for this flight ended up being more than my return flight on a more premium airline where I would have gotten to select my seat and fly more comfortably. Worst policies ever. I will never be flying spirit again. That being said, I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "Tricked into paying extra on everything. Never would have bought that flight if I knew how cheap the airline was. And you'd think and much as a "cheap flight" it was they would still have decent comfortable seats, and carpet that wasn't being ripped up. Literally the plane was only missing the dogs and goats. Absolutely horrible. I will never fly with spirit again and I've told everyone I know never to fly spirit."
Cons: "Spirit charges for carry on luggage as well as for soft drinks during flight."
