Pros: "Nice crew, better planes than Spirit Airlines!!"
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes! Arrived 2 hours later than expected- not good for my ride home who had to wait so long!!"
Pros: "The crew was good. They explained why we were late and helped with resetting the cabins TVs."
Cons: "The flight was delayed somewhat significantly which was very frustrating. Two of the four flights this trip were delayed."
Cons: "WiFi and media was not working but it was a short flight and they warned us ahead of time."
Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."
Pros: "All fine except that entertainment was curtailed becasue of flying to Cuba"
Pros: "Resolved promptly"
Cons: "Asked for water but was forgotten a couple times"
Pros: "Pleasant crew even though there was a delay"
Cons: "No food. Skimpy entertainment"
Cons: "5h delayed"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. All the staff was friendly and polite. The seat was very comfortable, and the ability to watch TV or listen to music was great."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight plus tv didn’t work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and terminal staff was rude about making changes"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Pros: "Crew were nice. They gave out cookies and chips."
Cons: "Families with kids should go second on the plane, not almost last. The air conditioning system was broken. The seats were hard on my bottom which made for a rough red eye flight. Hit tons of turbulence with no warning. I know you can see that ahead of time so just give us a heads up. They couldn’t get the bridge way to the plane so we sat for half an hour in the no ac plane instead of getting us a stair or other gate."
Pros: "That I eventually arrived."
Cons: "Everything else. 2 hours late???? F that."
Pros: "Swift boarding procesx"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Cons: "Plane was hot"
Pros: "Flight attendant great. Seats comfortable. Flight on time."

Cons: "Not much attention from crew. Had to request food purchase twice, although crew was not busy."

I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"

Cons: "Nothing,it was all great"
Pros: "14 hour Layover when you have to recheck luggage is terrible. Can't even check in for 8 hours so stuck outside the airport with no place to go until 6 in the morning. Not good at all."
Cons: "14 hour Layover and luggage did not go straight through. Had to recheck baggage after 8 hours. Then wait another 6 hours inside the airport."
Pros: "Good airline. Try to use then often. ."
Cons: "The plane was way too cold for me"
Cons: "The quantity of the food was few"
Pros: "It was my first time with copa airlines. Excellent experience and impressed with the services that they provide, including lunch, dinner and even breakfast. So surprised when I was provided option to select breakfast from the 2 (omllet or pancake) on just 1 hour and 20 minutes flight from Panama City to Costa Rica."
Pros: "I was impressed that even though it was such a short flight the crew worked hard to provide everyone food and drinks."
Cons: "This was the first Copa flight that we didn't receive a full meal. The crew also seemed more serious and less friendly than on other Copa flights."
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "Copa has the worlds very best gate agents and check-in agents by far... they had a huge line and held very professional atmosphere"
Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Pros: "Free lugagge under plane food and alcohol!!"
Cons: "Long connection"
Pros: "Amazing 45 min. flight w. food and drinks. No really!!"
Cons: "Almost wish the flt was longer"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked from Panama to Lima, so they leaved us for another day, and we missed the flight from Lima to Cuzco as well as the tour of tomorrrow morning to Machu Pichu, more than 1200 dollars of lost and for sure no responsability from Copa."
Pros: "Excellente customer service"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, causing a lot of stress at the terminal because many people had connecting flights. The Copa staff could not have been more helpful. Copa even put me up for the night at a Sheraton in Panama City when I missed my connection, provided free transportation to and from the airport, and gave me a free dinner voucher. All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."
Cons: "Getting home a day late wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't Copa's fault."
Cons: "No non-meat option for food"
Pros: "Food and sandwiches are tasty."
Cons: "No movie!, uggg... The real problem though is 1) they changed the gate on a connecting flight. Copa seems to make gate changes on all flights without notifying passengers. If you don't watch the board you'll miss your flight. Why not send a crew member to the gate you told passengers to go to , and put a sign by that gate notifying passengers of the change! So stressful!!! 2) In transit passengers catching connecting flights, Copa to Copa, have to go through their security again! What, why?? We cannot eat, drink and relax at the gate because no fluids are allowed AT YOUR GATE. We are not talking ourtside security, you are already in the security areas. Even to go to the bathroom you have to go in and out of security, again! Stupid!! We didn't leave the terminal, and you're making us miserable!"
Pros: "Very friendly, courteous and professional service"
Pros: "Well organized/great crew"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like. Will definitely fly Copa again"
Cons: "check in"
Pros: "Good staff. Clean. A lot of room."
Cons: "No self checking in kiosk."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Bad all around"
Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."
Cons: "very cold on the plane and don't provide blankets!"
Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"
Cons: "There was no food for me, nothing at all! Nor a bag of peanuts"
Cons: "10 hr delay in San José. A nightmare!"
Pros: "The fare was relatively low so I was not expecting much beyond safe transit between Costa Rica and Panamá. I was pleasantly surprised by the robust flight crew that all seemed knowledgeable, very friendly, and professional. I particularly enjoyed the quick and easy check in, no extra charges for my very large checked item, in flight entertainment via headrest screens, ample leg room and storage, and the ability to charge my phone during the flight via USB. Even though I was a passenger in coach, we were provided a light snack and free alcohol and beverages during the short flight. All in all, even as a very frequent traveler, Copa surpassed my expectations. I will definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "The only thing I felt could be improved was the boarding process and signage. I was originally in an exit row seat but was unexpectedly relocated as I boarded. The explanation was quite vague, even though I asked the gentleman to repeat himself twice, but overall the change was fine. I was moved up a few rows and kept my window seat preference, so I wasn't upset. I only wish I had been notified earlier at the check in desk rather than holding up the line of passengers behind me."
Cons: "Both ways we had to sit and wait on board for over 2 hours on tarmac prior to take off. Captain said needed more fuel and to fix problem or to lessen weight. Tried to get bottle of water because I was dying of thirst and staff could not sell a bottle of water. Only give a 3oz cup full. Which was gone in 2 seconds."
Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."
Cons: "The way I was treated"
Pros: "Everything was ok, easy, fast and got special attention in the airport for flying in copa. We didn't had to make the line for security in Costa Rica's airport"
Cons: "Nothing I can tell"
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Pros: "I really liked the flight I had on Copa Airlines this morning . I am please with the professional air that was shared. I will use the airline again and again."

Cons: "The plane didnt have screens on each chair...."
Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"
Cons: "Bad food"
Pros: "I liked that they had a snack for such a short trip, and the flight attendants seemed okay."
Cons: "The worst thing was that after boarding the plane spent more time on the ground, waiting to fly than it spent actually flying and making the trip. I think it was because it's such a small airport and the plane had to wait. Also, when we got there we had to take a bus because there was something wrong with the gate, that took a long time and was unpleasant."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "nothing was bad"
Pros: "Overall it was good experience. Fast boarding, good in-flight food and beverage selection. The crew was very nice and helpful."

Cons: "On my way back, it took long time to check the luggage in I was seated almost at the end. No personal t.v."
Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Cons: "No option for movies or chance to charge the cell in the plane."
Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."

Pros: "I like the most the VIP. Lounge. The services were excellent. The beverage and. Food. No complaints. Happy to spend 4 hours. After this experience finally my flight back to Miami. I paid $ 49 for a premium economy seat 6A. I'm 6 feet. Best choice. No problem. In general a good experience"

Cons: "2 problems - there wasn't enough time scheduled between my connection in mexico city when i was coming from florida to get through customs so I missed my connection and there wasn't any aeromexico staff around to assist. - the personal screens in each seat on the last flight from Mx city to Guadalajara couldn't be shut off and I was forced to have commercials being flashed very close in front of my face when I wanted to relax."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."
Pros: "No Kosher food option is unfair and not right."
Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Pros: "inflight entertainment"
Cons: "As they tend to do, three flight delays and changes, totaling almost seven hours with no communication from the airline, leaving all passengers in the dark, no customer service, no one to answer the phones, etc. Long lines to find out no info available, flights taken off screens, no updates. Waited in the Airport from ^ am for a 9 am flight, which finally left at 4 PM. No vouchers, no nothing!!!!!! The customer service would be rated poor if they had any at all"
Cons: "Pilots were late to flight...m"
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Pros: "I slept well."
Cons: "The a/c could've been a little colder."
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."

Cons: "I got the last seat on the plane, and it smell pee all the way. Disgusting."

Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
Cons: "The screen on my seat didn't work so I couldn't watch any movies. Crew was late arriving so we departed late. Check in procedure in MEX for connecting flight is a NIGHTMARE."

Pros: "Chairs where comfortable"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Comfort level on the plane was beyond my expectations. Seats, noise level, and elbow room excellent. I will definitely take another flight with American."

Cons: "No space! Glad I was sitting next to family! Seats were tight...no leg room...long flight!"
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
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: "The attendants helped you with all your needs. They were professional and fluent in the languages necessary to help the passengers. Very impressed"
Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."

Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"

Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"

Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Cons: "Person on my seat on previous flight puked and it had not been cleaned up. Puke in the seat tray and on the floor. My personal bag had pile all over it. Yuck."
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Comfort of the seats, could not recline"
Pros: "Friendly staff at the gate, also the crew as goodl"
Cons: "Don't need 2.5 hours delay to start my vacation. We finally checked in at our hotel at 01:00am....."
Pros: "Checking in with kiosk was easy. Boarding went quickly. Seats had adequate space."
Cons: "Older plane than the one going down. No seat back entertainment. Typical mini bag of pretzels and a drink."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to be in the best mood."
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."
Pros: "Just the price to be honest"
Cons: "Not on schedule at all .. Missed my fly from florida to ACY . big delay almost 4 hours . not happy . im sorry i will not recomend this airline ."
Cons: "I didn't like de space between seats and seats couldn't be recline. My back hurt all the flight"
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful, and hilarious! Shout out to Scott from flight 338! He made everyone on the plane laugh. Also the staff at check in gave me an emergency exit seat so I had plenty of room!"
Cons: "I will never fly with Spirit again. Do not be fooled by the cheap prices of the tickets as they do not include baggage fees (an extra $240 for two people to check bags round trip.) Nothing is complimentary (not even soft drinks or a bag or pretzels,) drinks are super expensive, there is no hanging options for your suits/dress (so don't bother to dry clean before you come) and there is no entertainment options at all. Also, when picking your seats do not pick the seats with only two thinking that you will have a window seat next to your travel partner- instead the third seat by the window is where you will be sitting with the flight attendant. Overall, it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COST HORRIBLE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. EVERYONE ON THE PLANE AND THE AIRPORTS HAD NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "NOTHING! WILL NEVER GIVE THIS COMPANY MY MONEY AGAIN. SPEND THE MONEY AND FLY SOME OTHER AIRLINE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. RUDE EMPLOYEES. ACTUALLY SAW GATE ATTENDANT YELLING ON THE PA AT PEOPLE IN FORT LAUDERDALE."
Pros: "More comfortable than I expected. The wider aisle and change in seat configuration made it feel more spaceous than other airlines. Crew was polite and efficient. Both flights on-time."
Cons: "Boarding is a bit of a free for all. Despite boarding by "zones", everyone seems to crowd the boarding area to get on the plane, even though we all have assigned seating (which is nice)."
Cons: "Crappy flight attendants gate people and complete airline"
Cons: "If I could give them negative stars, they would get all negative stars. The international flight from San Jose, CR was cancelled. They airline didn't rebook is on other flights or give us vouchers for hotel accommodation or for food. I'm baffled how an airline is allowed to operated with such bad customer service. They need to be shut down ASAP!!!"
Cons: "The airline cancelled an international flight from San Jose, Costa Rica for 48 hours and didn't rebook us on other flights. They didn't even offer any vouchers for hotel accommodation or for meals. This is the worst treatment of passengers that we've ever experienced."
Cons: "We got our boarding passes in Costa Rica only to be told our flight was delayed two hours and once we got to Florida, our flight had been delayed another 13 hours. Once we finally thought we had a set time, it got delayed another half hour. We have been stranded trying to get home for over 24 hours. It has been terrible. I will never, ever fly spirit ever again."
Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. No apologies on behalf of the airline for the cancellation, and having only part of my return flights refunded does not refund all extra baggage fees I paid."
Cons: "Everything! I am never flying spirit airlines again. The fares are deceiving, flights cancel with no explanation, and I am stranded in Florida. NEVER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "It got me to FLL"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. The board at the gate said the flight was on time, but I didn't get on the plane before the scheduled departure time. The seats don't recline and we landed an hour after the scheduled arrival time, which left me less than an hour to get through customs, security and to my gate which was on the other side of the airport."
Cons: "international flight and they wouldnt allow any free carry on or checked bags - next time we'll buy more expensive tickets from an airline that doesn't charge for a carry on."
Pros: "The flight crew seemed nice and friendly to most of the passengers that needed something. Some flight attendants were funny. The boarding process went smoothly. After everyone boarded the plane they allowed passengers to change seats because the flight wasn't full."
Cons: "If you weren't as needy then the flight crew wasn't as friendly. You have to pay for things that come standard with other airlines such as: carry on suitcase ($55 at the time of check-in) and a departure tax when leaving from Costa Rica. So in the end the flight may not actually be cheaper. The seats didn't recline back. We were on the airplane for an extended amount of time before takeoff and the pilot kept telling us 2 minutes until take off (several times)."
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing good about this airline."
Cons: "There are lots of hidden fees we didn't know about and ended up spending a lot more money than intended. There was horrible communication between the airline and the airport and we were held on the plane for an additional 30 minutes after landing which caused us to miss our connecting flight. They said it was our fault for missing the connecting flight even though it was out of our control. We were stuck at the airport and the next available flight was not until the following day. We received no compensation for their mistakes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I will never take this airline again."
Cons: "The staff is incompetent, the process of checking in and boarding is completely inefficient. Worse traveling experience I have ever had."
Pros: "How they got us through the airport quickly, pulled people outo of line and moved them faster through the process according to the flight times."
Pros: "Nothing. It was a nightmare"
Pros: "Cheap fare, new plane."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled due to "crew maintenance". I had to re-book on Jet Blue and pay much more and I had to stay in a Hotel for an additional night."
Pros: "that i made it home safe"
Cons: "assistance prior to boarding hidden fees flight comfort lack of updates about flight lack of itinerary due to what i was told was out of Spirits control flight adjustment fees"
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, our pilot had to continue past Fort Lauderdale and land our plane at Tampa. However, after landing we were forced to stay on the plane for 3 hours with very little updates on what was going to happen. Then their only solution was to bus us back to Fort Lauderdale which would take 6+ hours, causing us to miss our connecting flights. Therefore we were forced to rent a car (paid for out of pocket) and drive to another airport in order to make it to detroit"
Cons: "Horrible Spirit. Both flights cancelled for the mysterious "crew maintenance"."
Pros: "The staff in Orlando were beyond friendly and helpful. Jasmine (Supervisor) took great care of us."
Cons: "Our plane was an hour late in San Jose, then we sat on the runway for 45 minutes in Fort Lauderdale because Jet Blue was "blocking our gate". We were told twice that they were holding the plane (which was the last flight out because we missed our original flight by an hour and a half due to delays) for us. We went through security twice and they still didn't hold the plane. There's about 12 of us that didn't make it and was told that the plane was being held. We were forced to stand in the back of a long line to rebook. In that amount of time ( which was over 2 hours) in line and online booking were being made for our same flight.They WOULDN'T accommodate us with a hotel even after we stood in line for another 2 hours just so they could tell us that if we wanted to fly to Dallas it wouldn't be till Tuesday. By this time shuttles werent even running for the number they gave us for a discount on a hotel. The supervisor, GREG HALEY came over and covered his lanyard id with his hand the whole time he spoke with us. We asked for his name and he just said Greg and tried to walk away. We asked him for his last name and he was hesitant but told us it was Haley. We asked his supervisor's name and he scoffed and told us that he didnt have to give us that information, then walked away. We tried to sleep for 3hours on the freezing airport floor to catch a 8am flight to Houston so I could drive my boyfriend all the way to Dallas to pick up his truck and both of us drive back to Houston. Luckily our connecting flight to Houston was in Orlando for 4 hours so it gave me enough time to jump on a standby flight to Dallas Fort Worth out of Orlando in just under an hour. Worst airline and Supervisor (GREG HALEY-OUT OF FORT LAUDERDALE) I have EVER dealt with in ANY company."
Pros: "With all the hidden associated fees such as having to pay for all beverages and snacks, they charge you more than any other airlines for your checked luggage and the allotted weight limit of your luggage had to be 40lbs vs the 50lbs with other airlines. Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "With all the hidden associated fees such as having to pay for all beverages and snacks, they charge you more than any other airlines for your checked luggage and the allotted weight limit of your luggage had to be 40lbs vs the 50lbs with other airlines. Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "We left from Fort Lauderdale. It was chaos. Massive lines to get to the kiosks which they said we had to do. Finally got to a kiosk only to be told none of them were functioning. Lines to get to the check in desk was terrible. No one told us what was going on. Overall it was a poorly organized mess. They charged extra for everything. A cup of water was 3 dollars. Seats were small and no leg room."
Pros: "Customer Service team was great"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks or drinks, not even water! The seats don't recline Over $180 in baggage fees for a round trip flight!"
Pros: "They got our bags onto our connecting flight even though it was only 20 minutes between landing and takeoff."
Cons: "We had to pay the airport taxes separately and unexpectedly to leave Costa Rica. I know that Spirit wants to save us costs by not charging us for things we don't need but that cost isn't optional so it's just deceitful to not include it. The baggage check at the airport is also only open at a certain time so we had to wait an hour and a half in the baggage check line to wait for it to open and THEN it turns out we were accidentally in the express members line (which was unlabeled) and the spirit employees made us get to the back of the regular line which was huge at that point (note we were the first people at the counter before that happened. AN HOUR AND A HALF IN LINE before it opened, another HALF HOUR to get through the line when we had to get in back. THERE IS NO FOOD BEFORE THE SECURITY CHECK. When I was reserving/buying my seats the website gliched so I had to refresh and all the prices doubled!!!!! Note this is in a five minute window."
Cons: "Horrible Service. My flight was delayed due to bad weather and what followed was a nightmare. Spirit flew me out of my connection that was missed 24 hours later, made me wait in line for 4 hours to get a second replacement flight and has lost my luggage for good. Terrible customer service and terrible plannkng. Highly recommend to not fly this airline"
Pros: "Satisfied with with everything but two things"
Cons: "Had to pay extra taxes $29 in San Jose before I could get my boarding pass. It was a little warm in the plane"
Pros: "That I made it home safe. Departure and Arrival, is always excellent."
Cons: "The cabin was absolutely disgusting. The seats are extremely cramped. How can Spirit Airline be so proud of the fact that they are rated the worst airline over 3 years in a row. If I had a choice of airline everytime I go to Costa Rica even if the price is twice as high as Spirit, I would not hesitate to book with the competition. Spirit Airline is leading the pact again as the worst airline for 2017. This is ashame."
Pros: "Good service from fliht attendants and good snacks"
Cons: "flight was delayed by one hour. THere was a dark barking the last two hours of the flight right next to me. Our luggage was taken off the plane and sent to me 3 days later."
Pros: "the only thing i liked is that i got a seat in the second road, becaude somebody didnt show up and the flight was overbooked"
Cons: "the total final cost was very much higer from the traditional airlines. i cannot believe the company tries to sell you everything they can the reservation and check in process was impossible to acomplish it was the worst airline and experience ever the crew was eating in fron of everybody, before the plain took off, her own heated in the microwave food for purchase was really a joke"
Pros: "The plane got us eventually to where we needed to be in one place so that's a positive."
Cons: "Both leaving and returning had problems. I had a flight cancelation and a 13 hr delay both times customer service was terrible most of their suggestions involved 2-3 days delayed departures. I had to spoon feed them options and they told me they would just refund my money and I could find another airline. flight attendants were rude. I will not fly spirit again."
Pros: "Literally nothing. I mean, I guess the cold hard tile floors were shiny to sit in."
Cons: "They lied about volcanic ash to delay their flight because their crew was not ready to fly (they didn't have enough down time) meanwhile EVERY OTHER FLIGHT FLEW OUT. They would not give us a new flight. They would not give us food vouchers. No car rentals. No housing. We were stranded in a foreign country for 12 extra hours with NOTHING. On top of that they were rude, unhelpful, and after the 12 hour delay, DELAYED THE FLIGHT AGAIN. They would not help with anything. They simply blamed the "ash" that apparently didn't affect any other airline but Spirit. Never ever using them again."
Cons: "Lied about reason they weren't flying out, flight delayed 12 hours, check in took forever"
Cons: "Spirit airline is the worst airline ever! Always cancelling flights no leg room"
Pros: "I liked that it safely got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "They charge for everything... a lot, to the point where it would have been much more cost effective to spend more with another airline originally. $100 for a small bag? $50 to bring it on board? $3.00 for water or soda? Extra to choose any seat... not a special one, just to chose a seat. $10 for them to print out a boarding pass. Tiny, tiny seats. No TV or movie for long flights, shall I go on? I'd rather not fly anywhere than to ever fly Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, on time departures, low fares."
Cons: "Cramped uncomfortable seating, carri-on baggage fees."
Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived timely."
Cons: "Seats a little tight. I would rather have ticket pricing include luggage (one checked and one carry on) included in increased fare."
Pros: "The plain from Costa Rica to Ft. Lauderdale"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled without previous notice because the crew was tired. I'm 69 years old with a spine hernia and I had to sleep on the airport floor until the next day because they said all hotels were full"
Pros: "the staff was kind ON the plane."
Cons: "the plane was cold. The staff in San Jose, would not make announcements, inform passengers what was happening. and kept hidden that a hotel was available to those whose flight was cancelled. in general most customers i spoke with said they would not fly your airline again. and staff at your hotels said flight cancellations happen all the time with spirit. low fares are cool, but someone is absorbing these costs in your business model. i wonder if you will survive as an airline beyond 1-2 years if this is your manner of performance. we are willing to fly in discomfort, pack small bags, etc, but to treat us like pigs, is not a good thing for anyone."
Pros: "It landed"
Cons: "Seats are jammed in, nickel and dime you to death"
