Pros: "The crew as super nice"
Cons: "The space between lines of seats"

Pros: "seat comfortable"
Cons: "ticket price"

Pros: "The airplane was very nice with great space between seats and the crew was nice."
Cons: "During boarding procedure, the gate used did not support the number of passengers and was a little bit messy"

Pros: "Plane was good, plane staff were good."
Cons: "Forced to move seat (whole row of us) as plane was taxiing to the runway. Just managed to squeeze bag into overhead bin, sit down, and buckle in before we took off. Don't know why we had to move - not explained. Ended up with a middle seat rather than my booked window seat. There was a curfew in Bogota, which caused the plane from Panama to Bogota to be late, thus ensuring I missed my connection. Rather than being put on the next plane, I was forced to miss not only my original one, but 2 further ones. So rather than arrive, as scheduled, at 15:15 I will arrive over 9 hours later, after midnight. Could have been handled better by Avianca."

Cons: "instead of a sandwich, some typical food from the country we are arriving"

Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"

Cons: "Flight delayed four hours. Missed connection. Stuck in El Salvador overnight. Informed that A representative from Avianca would meet me at the airport to take me and others to a pre-arranged hotel. Immigration will not let me pass to baggage until the Avianca representative arrives. Still waiting."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The sandwich was surprisingly delicious"

Pros: "never took flight due to cancellation by airline. still have not received refund."

Pros: "The crew was excelent"
Cons: "The fly was delayed."

Pros: "It was a delayed for 4 hours and even then was another dalayed of 48 minutes"

Pros: "My first time flying on Avianca. American based carriers should take a look at Avianca’s playbook. Free hot towel given after take off, free pillow and blanket, a meal served with out a fee. Flight attendants make up and hair professionally styled, flight attendants offering to place bags in overhead bins. Customs forms handed out an hour into the flight not the last 30 minutes."

Pros: "We were able to board the rear of the plane which was very efficient. The flight was only 1.5 hrs"
Cons: "I was sure I purchased business class but my confirmation did not specify, so we got 2 middle seats at the back of the plane. There was a 3hr delay even though other airlines were leaving on time. None of the entertainment screens in our row worked. It just made for a very long uncomfortable wasted day."

Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "The cancelation"

Pros: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "Delays and lies that end by making me still not been able to arrive in Rio. I am in Bogota and all my professional meetings are gone."

Pros: "I really liked how they gave out a free meal - few airlines still do this."

Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."

Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

Pros: "Being moved to a copa fligth"
Cons: "They had us 3hours con the plain and after that it was cancelled. Several people lost a full day of work no responsability from Avianca."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No personal entertainment system."

Pros: "they were very accomodating"

Pros: "Friendly people attended to you at all times when checking in and boarding, and assisted people to getting to the window that were in line to check in. Friendly and attentive crew. The movies were free and high quality options. Loved watching Brooklyn, Carol, Suffregette, and Bajo el Abrazo de la Serpiente., to and from L.A. Food and drinks were served. Direct flight and good price"
Cons: "The food could have been a little better, though I hate to complain since you rarely get food on a flight now. The Chicken pasta was excellent. the accompanying salad and snack were not that great."

Pros: "On time, fast boarding, Second leg was very comfortable with ample leg room."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "es una de las mejores aerolineas de la region , no cabe duda , y ademas consegui un boleto a un excelente precio ."

Pros: "awful turbulence as we approached quito. pilot had to ascend just as we were landing. We circled quito for about 15 mnutes while strong winds shook the plane. pilot handled the plane well.. we all clapped when we landed.."

Cons: "Having waited in San Jose for two hours, I was hoping that maybe my experience on the last flight from Guatemala was an aberration. It was NOT! Again the food was disgusting and there was no form of entertainment available. Someone gave me their extra "snack" as we were disembarking but I left it on the plane. I am not one who usually tosses food aside; however, the food they gave us was revolting."

Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"

Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."

Pros: "The best other than the fact it was packed full lol but that’s not Deltas fault"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was nice."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and departing. Wonderful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Honestly, everything was great. Food and entertainment were a little lacking but for a 3 hour flight it was more than acceptable."

Pros: "Great crew, prompt and courteous despite the short flight"
Cons: "Flight departed an hour past scheduled time due to a snafu with flight attendants: they were either absent or really late or a replacement crew. Unacceptable personnel management."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."

Cons: "Just a bunch of weather delays because of the bad storms. I did not like the selection of movies and tv shows on the delta flight. So I just listened to podcast in my phone. But other than that everything was great."

Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "These planes are tiny. Our equipment was B717."

Pros: "Small plane without bells and whistles and no middle seats."
Cons: "The internet would not work. I couldn’t use any of the inflight entertainment."

Cons: "We didn't get served nothing to drink until 45 min to kc then by then i was so dehydrated i asked for a can of pop she said NO I SAID REALLY SHE SAID DELTAS NOT IN CHARGE OF STOCKING DRINKS & SNACKS SHE HAD MORE PEOPLE' TO SERVE REALLY EVERBODY IN FRONT OF US GOT WHAT THEY WANTED SO I HAD NOTHIN AT"

Pros: "Newer planes with extra large overhead bins are great and the boarding process is much easier and smoother now with all the various breakdown of groups instead of by row."

Cons: "2nd Delta flight on the same day that was delayed. This one only 44 min."

Pros: "Wonderful friendly crew. Comfy seat. Very pleasantly impressed with the comfort on a CRJ900 -- windows are large and closer to eye level, standing room is enough."

Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"

Cons: "The airline cancelled the flight alluring weather conditions, when the reality was they did not wanted the plane to park in Kansas. The weather conditions were even worse on the flight I was moved to, and that flight was not cancelled. They absolutely did not care about the passengers"

Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Plane 1hr late taking off"

Pros: "The flight was only half full so boarding was very quick."

Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Efficient and friendly"

Pros: "The movies kept my daughter busy."

Pros: "Nice plane and comfy seats"
Cons: "The stewards were not at all helpful or as friendly as most of the delta staff! I was so disappointed with their service. We had TWO delays making us arrive in SAT AT almost 2 am. Hence there were a lot of empty seats. We asked if we or even one of us could move into the …at least three empty rows…and they would not let us as they were they comfort plus section and it cost more…NO ONE WAS USING THESE SEATS!! So they let the passengers be crammed together in the rest of the plane and left numerous empty seats that could have been used! It’s was just rude. They also served drinks and never checked back to pick up the garbage. Didn’t tell us to raise our seats or put up our table trays before landing. So, as I exited the plane I handed them my garbage! I wasn’t going to be rude and leave it in the seat pocket or my seat …where I found crumbs of food on when I boarded the plane. Was just very dissatisfied with this crew!! I have been flying a lot lately using delta. I’ve had some delays but they’ve always been accommodating, this crew was not! What a shame!"

Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive attendants and flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Staff, service, options"

Pros: "I did not like anything all. But the to last agent to help me after I was send to different airlines"
Cons: "And when I get to US delta Airline ticketr did not even look at my ticket she just send to Virginia Australia make me walk all over. I know it supposed to be delta"

Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."

Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."

Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful, seats were super comfortable"
Cons: "Lateeeeeeee so so so so lateeeee"

Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"

Pros: "Horrible seats. Scraped up my knees on a screwhead on the seat in front of me. Way too cramped."

Cons: "La incomodidad de los asientos además que la escala fue de más de 6 horas y fuimos los últimos en abordar. Para colmo los asientos fueron los últimos de la fila y ni siquiera eran reclinables. Creo que deben tomar en consideración a las personas que estamos tantas horas en la escala y permitirles abordar primero además de darles asientos más cómodos más aún si hemos comprado los boletos con tanto tiempo de anticipación."

Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff, modern and clean plane."

Pros: "Boarding was delayed, but flight crew & desk staff moved us quickly through & off we went. It was efficient & well managed."
Cons: "A bit cramped on board. Thinking of the discount carriers while smooshed in with my aisle mates."

Cons: "Delays. Ways late."

Pros: "The food and the service"

Pros: "The service and non stop smooth ride. Boarding was a new experiance taking a bus to the plane. Was quick and crew helpful storing my carryon. Everyone very helpful."

Pros: "Nice flight a good crew"

Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."

Pros: "same"

Pros: "The quick flight was nice, the flight attendants were super sweet and kind and were willing to give me extra snacks when I requested for them. No screens on this flight, but understandable since it was such a short flight :)"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Rude staff"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight attendant late arriving to his job causing a 30 minute delay in boarding. Desk staff at airport seemed more interested in their own conversations than helping passengers . Fight attendants seemed uninterested in their jobs and lacked warmth. 45 minutes late arriving in Kansas City no announcements from captain"

Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."

Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"

Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"

Cons: "I did not like that the airline would not give a seat on an earlier flight so that I would not have to spend so many hours in the Chicago O'Hare airport. I did not like that the airport only allowed me thirty minutes of access to the internet. As a result, I could not work while I had to wait for my flight. Finally, I did not like that the airline lost or delayed my bag."

Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with another 1 hour delay on the tarmac"

Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."

Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"

Cons: "The layout of the Vegas airport is not one of my favorites"

Pros: "Much better than the trip to chicago"

Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"

Pros: "The price is competitive. On boarding was ontime. Though the flight was redirected to Omaha due to bad weather in Kansas City, it was only an hour late than the scheduled arrival to Kansas City."
Cons: "The WiFi was not as expected. In flight entertainment is null. Snack would have been better."

Pros: "Nice plane when we finally boarded it. Crew was very professional."

Pros: "very good no problems.."
Cons: "all good thanks much"

Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by something and weren't very nice. They looked/seemed tired. Cabin lights were on the whole time for a ~3 hour flight which began at 830pm."

Pros: "Flight was on time, flight was good. Overall I was very happy with the overall fight experience."

Pros: "Crew very courteous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. I couldn't run my business that way!"

Pros: "Got seated at row 2 so practically I was the first one to disembark. There's only one stewardess who took care of us and she did very well."
Cons: "The plane is so small that I don't have above head compartment so I had to put all my stuff under seat in front and I don't have space to put my leg."

Pros: "Seats were comfy and super clean"
Cons: "The staff never greeted us or said good bye. They didn’t really smile at all. Didn’t really seem to be happy or acknowledge us"

Pros: "It was a flight."
Cons: "The glory days of the airlines are gone."

Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."

Cons: "Nothing. It was what you expect. Comfortable transportation and no crashes."

Pros: "Going home"

Pros: "The gate agent kept us well informed about our delayed flight - she kept calling to find out status of the flight and reported her findings to us after every call. United provided water and snacks in the gate area as we waited. Gate agent was pleasant and helpful to everyone during the delay."
Cons: "Got a call at 3:00 am saying our flight would be delayed an hour from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. and offered optional flights at no charge. Stayed with original flight since this was a direct flight. The flight ended up being 3 1/2 hours late. We had to wait for a ferried plane from Chicago. Just wondering if United knew at 3:00 am that they had problems, why did it take 13 hours for them to resolve it?"

Pros: "Snacks and drinks. Good legroom"
Cons: "I chose our seats online upon booking about 5 months ago and when we got to check in we were told we weren’t even sitting together for a 3.5 hour flight. Not sure why we got leftover seats when we chose already And booked months ago"

Pros: "Our flight attendants were delightful, courteous, and helpful, but the flight had ZERO entertainment available without additional payment (even the flight tracker cost extra money)."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the data before our departure our flight departure was changed from 1 PM to 1:30 PM and the day of it was changed again to 1:18, but then was delayed again. That issue made us late to Chicago which caused us to miss our connecting flight to Minneapolis by 4 minutes. 4 MINUTES!!! . So as I write this review I am sitting in ohare at 5:17 AM awaiting my flight when I DHOULD have been in bed in Minneapolis for the past 8 hours"

Pros: "Loved the direct flight from Newark to Costa Ruca which arrives in less than 5 hours, crew was very helpful to other passengers with connecting flight info."
Cons: "Typical cramped seating, need to pay to watch movies/direct TV and food, minuscule snack pack."

Pros: "The direct flight was really nice."
Cons: "That entertainment had an extra cost."

Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I was moved up from Row 25 to row 9"
Cons: "Price to watch a movie was 7.99"

Cons: "They did not let me change my flight date"

Pros: "Departure was on time. Surprisingly, had row to myself, allowed for more leg room. Flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "One beverage service only. My flight to Sf had two services which included free pretzels. Attendant did not return down aisle to check on passengers after first beverage service. Seats of plane in both directions for non stop flights very uncomfortable. With no lean back seats hard to find good sleep position. I tend to sleep through early morning flights."

Pros: "Comfortable, quick, and great service."
Cons: "No food."

Cons: "For some reason reserved seats don't mean much on a United full flight. My wife and I spent the 3+ hour flight 12 rows apart. When we tried to speak to the gate agent, explaining that this was our honeymoon, she didn't even let me finish my sentence before interrupting and saying there was nothing she could do. At least look a customer in the eye, listen to their concerns and apologize."

Cons: "Check in process was at kiosk was long wait"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Seats very dirty sticky Not clean at all"

Pros: "Friendly staff, outgoing and professional"
Cons: "Wifi charges are a bit gouging"

Pros: "The flight crew seemed worn and a bit surly. They ran out of two of the meals and the one I got was oddly seasoned but it was warm. We sat on the ground quite a while while they fixed the PA system with no water then there was a women they'd let on the flight even though she had a different destination - supposedly they spent an hour looking for her bag on the plane. Do you hold up a whole plane load of people that got on the right plane for the woman that didn't and how come when they checked her ticket - no one noticed?"

Cons: "Kansas City airport is in need of a complete remodel."

Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"

Pros: "Smooth flight and on time"

Cons: "No fee for movies on international flight"

Pros: "The free internet and movies"
Cons: "The delayed flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had the most uncomfortable seats on the plane seats didn't recline as well . Also was giving no food not even a snack for a international flight which was absolutely redicoulous. Had to pay for bags when I fly American Airlines or southwest they are free. So your prices really aren't that great after you have to pay for everything."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"

Pros: "First class it was owsome"

Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."

Pros: "Cheaper"
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"

Cons: "We have to pay for food on a 2 hour flight? Just snacks, no meal even though it was dinner time. The stewardess doing announcements was obnoxious. She had an odd way of speaking with strange pauses, she kept calling it Kansas instead of Kansas City, and she made condescending remarks about it."

Cons: "It was a small, commuter plane and everyone was to gate check any carry-on that wouldn't fit under the seat, like rolling bag. My neighbor did not check his and took up more than half of my leg room. He was NOT friendly and I was not willing to anger him by complaining. But he should not have been allowed to bring it on board. This was a United flight, not Lufthansa."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"

Cons: "There's no spave at all between your seat and the one in Front of you. I couldn't leave my seat to go to the restrooms without shamefully jumping into the two gentlemen's sitting next to me"

Pros: "It was a routine cross country flight! Smooth boarding, deplaning and good service from the Crew."

Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Did not like having my flight pushed back and back and back, to then be cancelled due to "air traffic control". Did not like my flight being rescheduled to 3 days later and that day being 4th of July. Did not like buying another flight for $300 so I could get to where I was going."

Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."

Pros: "Delayed in Denver"

Pros: "It's was quick."
Cons: "Delayed a bit but mostly ok."

Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"

Pros: "Went smoothly & on time"
Cons: "Didn't see any flying monkeys going over Kansas. They promised me flying monkeys..."

Cons: "At the boarding gate, there was really really mean crew operating the boarding. There was one guy on standby, was told to wait so he did but he didn't get the seat . I understand that could happen but how she spoke this guy was absolutely rude and she did say " that's not my fault! That's your fault!!" And slam the door ... When we asked her for adding miles , she did as complaining " I am here for the flight to Ommaha ." Even though she was not , she is working for United airlines , isn't it her job ??? She was like that to every customer and that presents your company's value ... When the gate was for us , she was back at the gate ...... I am so disappointed for this poor customer service. Even though if I mention here , I know nothing would change and I hope this one voice will reach to the company somehow and make some change ."

Pros: "Good service and wonderful personnel"
Cons: "Nothing all was well"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "I liked the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "It seems that they don’t really care about inconvenience to the customers."

Pros: "Kaska was very helpful during my checkin. All the staff was on point and helpful. I was worried because all the bad comments. I guess if you know what to expect you will enjoy your travel with spirit."

Cons: "TSA was terrible !!!!!!!!!!!as it related to my medical needs."

Cons: "The communication on the app was sparse and did not provide enough information and would have to jump to an internet browser to do anything. Other airlines have better apps and clearer information"

Pros: "I liked the low ticket price"
Cons: "The high fees charged for luggage, the high cost of the snacks and small portions of those, the tiny tables and the only thing in the seat pocket was the how-to card. No magazine, never mind if it was months old, and no barf bags, or is that why there was nothing in the seat back pouch?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Spirit sucks"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "."

Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"

Pros: "I like the raffle ticket for middle seat."

Cons: "Spirit is cheap, but you pay for it in mediocre service and in very squeezed seating. I was lucky in that the plane was not full because it was a holiday. But when the plane is full, people are really jammed in."

Pros: "Just fine and easy"

Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "Having to pay for luggage to come with me. Should be standard."

Pros: "The plane seemed to have more room per seat than other airlines I have travelled with."
Cons: "The check-in line was extremely long but the stay was working hard to get everyone through in a timely manner. Also pre-check-in was frustrating from the hotel, which may have been an internet connection problem. But when I called to ask a question it was very difficult and frustrating trying to get an actual person on the phone. Additionally he told me it would not cost extra to check-in at the airport but your website said otherwise. You might want tok get the staff and website on the same page."

Cons: "Late take off"

Cons: "Seating"

Cons: "Delayed 1 hour"

Pros: "6 hour wait in LV. No information was communicated with us."

Pros: "arriving ahead of schedule"
Cons: "high baggage fee and starving customers by selling them foods and drinks"

Pros: "Once again AWESOME"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Once again everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "You have to even pay the meal!"

Pros: "Nothing. It was a nightmare"

Pros: "Cheap fare, new plane."

Pros: "Easy check in and professional staff"
Cons: "Chronic lateness and nothing to make up for it. And all their planes are like meat lockers. I have no idea why it needs to be so cold."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The stewardesses and captain were kind and approachable. The other passengers were kind. The seating and luggage compartments were spacious. Being 6'4" it was nice to have leg room even in a non emergency exit row."
Cons: "I didn't have any of the food or drink so I cannot comment on it."

Pros: "Arriving early"

Pros: "Cancelled for weather but every other airlines was still flying into KC. Th y said they weren't flying out again until 3 days later. Never got any money back or miles."

Cons: "Bad completely service"

Pros: "No problems at all, very impressed!"

Pros: "Cheap Practical Friendly staff"

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "The ticket was affordable."
Cons: "We were given the security bypass which costs money and were beaten through security by 4 people who were behind us in the ticket line."

Pros: "Again no delays got on with no issues"

Pros: "Attendents were funny"
Cons: "I don't like pay $ 55.00 fee baggage"

Pros: "Easy, pleasant trip. Will book again"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"

Pros: "Is the bare essential, a seat that doesn't seat a grown man. I up graded to a $15.00 seat, still was in a sardine can. I'm 6'3 normal. Give me a fair rate for a fair seat. I'm looking to other airlines. Then boarding was a joke, the lines were to long."
Cons: "Ticket price, I have to still purchase a seat to sit on the plane."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
