Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."

Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there. Intercom messages sounded like an annoyed demand because we were bad passengers not an announcement simply alerting us of the seatbelt sign being turned on again"

Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."

Cons: "Had to pick up gate-checked bag at carousel. But it arrived quickly."

Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours."

Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The efficiency and helpful staff was just great."

Pros: "Left right on time."

Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"

Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew while still having a good time and making it a great experience. Am a frequent flier and this is an airline I hope to travel on again very soon!"

Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"

Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."

Pros: "more leg room, real snacks"
Cons: "horrible sound quality on the in flight movies/TV"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"

Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."

Cons: "1/2 hr late"

Pros: "Everything was terrific...on time and a very smooth experience including the flight! Thank you!"

Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."

Pros: "Friendly polite crew, good takeoff and landing, little turbulence. Our flight was delayed, but only by half an hour."
Cons: "Having to pay twice because I'm a person of size and hang only little over when most of the back of the plane was empty. I can see having to pay for the seat to reserve it, and having to pay if I'm using 2 seats and the plane is full otherwise, but if the flight isn't full, I should be able to get a refund for one of the seats. It's discrimination and it's not okay. Or, you know, have seats that fit all your customers. Also the SiriusXM sound was of extremely poor quality."

Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."

Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"

Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no explanation why"

Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Plane smelled like urine"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"
Cons: "Good taste perhaps...?"

Cons: "5 hours delay. Most of that time we were on the runway. We even had to deplane and board again. We were given all kind of excuses till the pilot himself said that this is unheard off !!"

Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."

Pros: "The cAbin attendant was really good"

Cons: "No problems at all!"

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."

Cons: "Poor service"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "On time, free upgrade."

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight."

Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Pros: "When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond."

Cons: "Boarding in LA was. Mess"

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"

Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."

Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "Wobbly, tight seating. Broken tv/entertainment system. No legroom. No warning before turbulence."

Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"

Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."

Cons: "Beverages fir 1st class"

Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"

Cons: "Been non discriminatory"

Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "awesome"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "Didn’t fly"

Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"

Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Pros: "The entertainment"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."

Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."

Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"

Cons: "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."

Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."

Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"

Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."

Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."

Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"

Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."

Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"

Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"

Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."

Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"

Cons: "Everything good"

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"

Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."

Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."

Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."

Pros: "personal service"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Cons: "Nothing was fine"

Cons: "Free drinks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "Terrible company"

Pros: "Spirit is low fare, so can't expect comfort. But it's part of the deal, and not necessarily a bad thing. Other than that, it was a very good trip."

Pros: "Plane was ok for a low cost"
Cons: "Boarding; always delays with Spirit."

Pros: "I hate that the seats don’t decline so it’s makes it very uncomfortable."
Cons: "If the seats could decline"

Pros: "The whole service was excellent!"

Cons: "Less expensive food and drink onboard"

Cons: "Delayed us several hours. Missed our connection home. Ruined our anniversary trip. Had to drive 5 hours in the middle of the night in order to make it to work this morning. I hate your airline and will never fly it again."

Pros: "Everything they dont know anything when we ask"

Pros: "The price of the ticket! Plus the plane felt roomier"
Cons: "No tv or radio. And seats do not recline at all."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."

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: "Pleasant staff. Seats were comfortable. Nothing fancy"
Cons: "Paying $40 for a checked bag. But it arrived safely no problem"

Cons: "The plane was very loud."

Cons: "Service is Not ideal because of attitudes."

Pros: "Pilot did a nice job. Easy of check-in. Did not have to take off my shoes."
Cons: "Crewe member at check-in was rude. When I asked for a different person to help me, she did apologize. The board at the gate was wrong. It said it was going to Baltimore. Employees said it was a mistakes that the flight was to Richmond. It was corrected about 10 minutes before departure. Plane was late. Charged an additional $50 each way for suitcase. Did not know this at time of booking."

Cons: "Traffic accidents delayed me 2 hours and I got to the airport 10 minutes before the flight. I called Spirit air for 2 hours trying to get them to help Meetup but they have a “no show” policy and said I was a no show even though I was there!!!!!!!!!!!! And I had called 2 hours prior to flight to ask for help. Epic fail. Never fly Spirit air."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Spirit sucks"

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

Pros: "."

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

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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Only airline that charges $29 per passenger for tax in costa rica so that spirit can deceptively advertise at a lower price. Even a drink costs $3. I was curious if i had to swipe my credit card in order for the oxygen to work during emeregency. Both flights were delayed."

Cons: "Late take off"

Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Trip seemed pretty quick."
Cons: "Plane arrived late. (That's ok, it happens..) Once we were on the plane, we were delayed for quite awhile. Not sure for the reasoning other than they kept calling a bunch of people to see them, on the microphone. Also, the microphone speakers were hardly enthusiastic and didn't seem to know what they were reading when giving directions about safety. The bagge fee is crazy. Probably won't use spirit anymore unfortunately."

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: "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."

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"

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: "The seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced in my life. Horrible experience. Nothing cheap about it. Charges for everything. Never again"

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"

Cons: "Bad completely service"

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: ":)"

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: "That I made it alive"
Cons: "Everything! Will never fly this airline ever again and will tell everyone I know what a horrifying experience it was...not worth it!"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"

Cons: "You would think that when you pay extra for the bigger seats that they would recline. The seats in the first row reclined not the second row... Same price for the upgrade. That should be disclosed or the seats should be lower."

Pros: "It was cheap and it didn't get canceled, the seats were comfy and I had leg room."
Cons: "I actually enjoyed this flight"

Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Entreteimen we didn't have any? ???"
