Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."

Cons: "Nothing yet."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."

Not sure if the personnel had not had their coffee yet, but 3 of 4 agents we encountered were not very friendly in the way they attempted to help us resolve a baggage situation. In the end we paid extra and carried on otherwise we would miss our flight. The TV screen on my seat did not work; thus no entertainment for me."

Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Cons: "I missed my flight i spend longer than an hour in the line to get to the gate they never call for passengers or call names they were selling the tickets to other people didn't wait for people who got their tickets in advance, they say is not our fault that all those people missed the flight we not giving any compensation or hotel, I had to come back to New York paid for hotel and without my luggage worse experience in my life."

Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."

I've otherwise had nothing but positive experiences with them."

Cons: "Web-checking still a little buggy (I'm not allowed to web checking when going to the USA, when departing from the USA and my destination address is in a different country I'm still forced to choose a US State to continue). Also Panama Tucumen Airport is awful, crowded, expensive and usually dirty."
Pros: "Roomy seats."
Cons: "One bathroom had a faulty toilet. The other had a door that would not lock. Some seat back pockets were in bad shape."
Pros: "puntual with great service"

Cons: "Hice el webcheck in y aun asi me pusieron de ultimo en toda línea, entiendo que habian los que se quedaron del dia anterior, pero puso estrés en mi, también salimos tarde, y mas valijas se quedaron en Chicago y en lugar de mandarlas a mi casa, tuve que viajar 3 hours al aeropuerto y recogerlas yo misma despues que me habían dicho que las mandarían."

Pros: "Smooth Flight great drinks and food"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Liked the dairy free options for the meal."
Cons: "Didn't have an individual tv to watch movies on, or cell phone charger. Given the price however, this was acceptable."
Cons: "custumer service"
Cons: "On my return flight home, they wouldn't accommodate adjusting my itinerary because I wasn't feeling well. I was willing to pay change fee for 1 layover instead of the 2 layovers on my original itinerary. They wanted to charge me $700 which was greater than my original ticket. So I flew on the original itinerary at started my travels @ 7am on Monday. Flight from Bogotá to Barranquilla w/Avianca airlines was great. In Barranquilla I had a 4 hr layover, checked in w/Copa agent and he said my bag was on plane. In Panama, there was a 1.5 hr layover so I assumed no issues getting my luggage to the correct connection. The flight from Panama was delayed by 40 mins w/no explanation. We just sat on plane. They only played one older movie, plane was old and they did 1 beverage service w/meal for a 5.5 hour flight. I finally arrived back to ORD @ 12:15 am Tuesday. I waited for my luggage in baggage claim for 35 mins. It doesn't arrive and I ask attendant, who brushes me off and says this is the claim for Copa. She disappears for 30-40 mins. I finally see her walking back into international baggage claim (over an hour has passed that I've been in baggage claim) and tell her my luggage did not arrive. She asks me for my claim ticket then proceeds to say "oh yes, I was informed your bag did not make it." I'm upset because it's 1:40am and she could have saved me an hour if she would have helped me when I first asked. I also am curious how an airline loses my bag twice."
Cons: "This trip was 1st time using Copa airlines. They misplaced my bag on the way to Bogotá and I didn't receive it until 3 days later."
Cons: "Cabin crew based in South American countries don't speak a word of English."
Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline and there is almost no entertainment."
Pros: "plane was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't very polite."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options, Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "The check in staff are the first port of call. They were excellent and very friendly and helpful. It set the scene for the rest of my flight"
Cons: "One of my bags did not arrive in Panama. They tell me it is now on my ongoing flight to Belize .....we'll see!"
Pros: "I love flying Copa! My friend and I had only a 40 minute layover on Tuesday morning from San Jose, CR to Panama City to Chicago. We were pretty worried about missing the flight in Panama City because that meant we missed our fight home. The crew was wonderful and changed our seats to the front of the plane so we wouldn't miss the flight. If he hadn't had done that, we 100% would have missed the flight .I will recommend Copa to everyone."
Pros: "They had a vegetarian pasta option and the crew is always friendly!!!!"
Cons: "We were an hour late arriving. Boarding was slow."
Pros: "Food and drinks."
Cons: "Bad entertainment selection and screen."
Pros: "Food, crew."
Cons: "The plane went to land in Barranquilla but came to land too quickly and once he touched down he had to accelerate and take off again. Very uncomfortable 20 minutes circling without an announcement."
Cons: "I was forced/tricked to check my instrument on the boarding gate when what i really asked for is for the crew to take it o tha plane or for them to let me take it on carry on. Someone lied to me and then they checked in with the loggage"
Cons: "Not enough smiling from the crew"
Pros: "I LIKE THE MOVIES GOOD SERVICE"
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly, easily switching languages to suit the clients. The pkane was clean, tge flight smooth and the food surprisingly good for airline food."
Cons: "All was goid"
Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "So much turbulence! Plus the flight attendant wasn't very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Yes all good"
Pros: "Liked the crew and video"
Cons: "We didn't get any food vouchers even tho we had to wait an extra hour and a half to board the plane because the pilot didn't show up"
Pros: "The flight itself was very nice."
Cons: "The airport in Panama closed due to a storm as we were about to land. We diverted to Columbia. When we got there and we were not aloud off the plane. We were stuck on the plane for 2+ hours. We were offered a small cup of soda and that was it. They turned the air off too so it got hot quick. When we finally landed in Panama it was a clusterfuck. No one there knew which gate the flight to São Paulo was leaving from or when. They sent us back and forth between three different gates before we finally got on a plane. No one seems to know where to send us or what to tell us....total confusion. We were waiting in the Panama airport for over 2 hrs before we left to São Paulo. I'm amazed my luggage made it to my destination. Over all, with the storm and delay at Panama airport my flight delay was 5-6 hours turning my 13 hr flight to São Paulo into a 22 hr trip."
Pros: "Again, went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "No priority boarding for check in, Albright places were available I was put in almost the last row for my 3 flights that included short connections."
Pros: "This is my first review ever and I'm happy it's about Copa Airlines. I am tremendously impressed! I had such a great honey moon. There's not much I would change! Staff was so nice, food was good for "airplane food", the tvs helped time go by. I wouldn't fly any other airline!"
Pros: "Everything was good in general. Food was not what Copa used to serve, nor is the comfort quite the same."
Pros: "The flight price was great - under $300 USD for a RT flight from MEX to BOG. The airplane was big, 3 seats on each side of the aisle. The amount of seat back recline is AWESOME. Also very much appreciated the in-flight meal and glass of wine (at no additional charge). The flight wasn't even close to being full so we had a full row to ourselves."
Cons: "The amount of leg room is definitely lacking. Fortunately I'm barely above average height for a female, so it wasn't terrible, but my boyfriend had a very hard time. We also had a lot of trouble understanding the flight attendant's announcements in English over the intercom. I had better luck trying to translate the Spanish announcements."
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "captain must of thought we needed to freeze, extremely cold"
Pros: "Flight left on time, boarding process was good. Got my bags quickly upon arrival."
Cons: "Old plane with no individual screens on seats even though it is a 4hr long flight. Poor food. Worst of all, they broke one of the wheels off the suitcase that I checked in. I filed a complaint with the airline when I got my suitcase but the employees told me that the airline usually does not compensate you for a broken wheel because its considered "external" damage. I will try never to take Copa again when I go from Colombia to Mexico or viceversa. If prices are equal or even just a bit more expensive on Avianca, I will definitely go for that option."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay my bag twice. My flight was delayed 2 hours causing me many issues upon my arrival."
Pros: "Crew was very professional, plane was clean. Ride was smooth."
Cons: "I had overweight passenger next to me who tried his very best to keep his left arm away from me, but when he fell asleep I was squeezed. No fault of Spirit. It was too tight of a seat arraignment. When I went to get my seat from customer service there was a man with luggage that will fit the template for carry on, but the wheels did not allow his suitcase to fit the length. He had to pay for his luggage, I thought the representative should have not charge him. I bought my ticket last minute as it was business trip decided 2 days prior. I chose Spirit for the convenient schedule, never used them before. For the same amount of money a coworker of mine got very convenient flight with no charge for carry on with assigned seats with American. I thinkg the price was not competitive."
Pros: "The isle seat, the price, tsa"
Cons: "Had a great trip."
Cons: "The aircraft was freezing. The water was not complementary and I didn’t have a card to pay with I only had cash. The seat was extremely hard and uncomfortable. The flight was last taking off and landing."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food we did pay for snack It was more expensive, I'll rather fligh with an airline that tell me up fron how much I will expend on my ticket instead o giving me a low price and then charge me for everything."
Cons: "Departing and landing was great I will fly again and again"
Cons: "The plan was dirty. They need to make sure they wipe down everything. It gross"
Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was nice overall. You can have coffee raffles for free. Seats weren't too bad for 5 hours flights."
Cons: "The Microphones were too loud. the crew talked too much trying to sell the rewards card. It was frustrating that the carry on is too expensive. I paid $100 total for my carry on. I thought I was saving money using this airline but I end up paying more for fewer services. My flight was 5 house flight with no wifi service. nothing to entertain with. I don't think I would take this airline again unless its 1-hour flight with no carry-on."
Cons: "I was running late for my flight and the charged me for a whole new flight."
Pros: "I selected my seat when I checked in and to my surprise, I had the entire row to myself. This was great cause I'm a bigger girl and the seats are VERY close together and small. I actually felt bad for the other passengers that were crammed in like sardines."
Cons: "I really had no complaints that could be corrected... turbulence was pretty bad but with the weather conditions, that was to be expected."
Pros: "Landed early and gate open. Great trip all over he way even though in a middle seat"
Cons: "flight was delayed seat was terrible terrible airline"
Cons: "Paying for every single carry on suitcase"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. We arrived at our final destination early."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, but the flight was short so it did not matter too much."
Pros: "About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time."
Cons: "Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "low fare"
Cons: "check in process was confusing- one airport you had to pre-print, the other you didn't, no cell phone tickets allowed. There are higher fees for carry-ons than checked bags. Didn't like the attitude/marketing at all. I've flown other no-frills carriers but these guys just rubbed me the wrong way!"
Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight form San Jose to Chicago in Fort Lauderdale. Both Flights were Spirit. Had around 2 yrs to get from my flight from San Jose to the chocago flight. By the time i went thru customs (huge line) then thru security (another huge line) i got the the gate at 7:38 A. M. My flight was scheduled to leave at 7:42 A.M.. I understand that you do need to close your gates a little earlier, but i was not the only one that had the same itenerary and missed the flight. Its just hard to understand that you must have a record of who is missing on that flight and since you know they are at the airport (because we came in from San Jose on your flight) not to at least wait until 7:42 to close the gates. There was no one at the gate, the gate was closed as we watched the airplane sit there without moving for at least another 10 minutes. Its beyond logic and the only way i can explain that in my mind is that your record of competing with other airlines of being on time is more important to the airline than the customers themselves. Which is very sad. Then i stood in line for one and a half hours just so i can speak to someone on what my next step should be. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to miss your flight and then have to stay in line for another hour and a half in that stress? As i stood there and watched the couple in front of me being in distress and his girlfriend crying i realized how unfriendly Spirit Airlines is ti its cutomers. Then finally i get to the representitve to be told i can get a flight out at 6:15 P.M. That is 10 and half hours later. So i inquired, can we use another airline or even an alternative airport to resolve the long wait, of course i was told no without any explanation. So, i had my office search for a flight for me and they found one for 101.00 to Midway with Southwest Airlines leaving at 10:15 A.M., but since i was in a different terminal and would have to go thru security, i would not make it. Very frustrating to think since your air line is the one that propsed the itenerary for me, would not back me up when i missed the flight with no fault of mine. Afterall, Spirit sold me that Itenerary, they should have been aware that it can take longer than two hours to make it to the next flight. But, what really has me steaming is you could not even have more than one person to help at the counter for the people that missed their flight, because if you DID then i could have had time to book the Southwest flight. Due to your lack of concern about the customers in general my company nor I will ever use your services again. I know that probably doesnt break your heart, but me being in business now for well over 30 years,i can gaurantee you eventually if you do not change your practices, it will affect your bottom line. One last note. I overheard another frustrated customer asking if they will give him any food vouchers, and he was stared down for a few seconds and then a simple "no"."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "It is absurd to charge 55 bucks for a carry on!! Also ridiculous there is no beverage service"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and organized both ways."
Cons: "On the flight in to ft. Myers, the flight attendants were all grumpy and unfriendly. The seats are entirely too small - I am an average-sized female and felt very crammed into the seat area. At one point, I dropped something but there wasn't even enough room for me to bend down and get it - I had to kick it over and ask the smaller person next to me to pick it up for me! I thought I would have an anxiety attack in such a small space. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight at the last second."
Cons: "I was charged an extra $50 to check-in my bag at the counter! Quite mean! I wasn't preinformed!"
Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"
Pros: "Seats looked new"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour & half due to 'no landing time in NY'. Totally unrelated to weather or the aircraft. Drinks are available for a fee - even water!"
Cons: "You lie about the real price of the flight. $45 for a carry on? one way?!? Thought this was America. Thanks, Obama."
Pros: "Spirit cancelled my flight never again will I use this service made me lose lots of money and lost out on my brother's wedding"
Pros: "Staff was all very nice."
Cons: "The aisle that had passengers sit in who had to verbally agree to aid getting door open had a drunk man who agreed. He never should have sat in that aisle."
Cons: "Try getting charged for your bags only to then get stuck paying even more for your seats because the only ones left. The last available seats where in an exit row and I was forced either to pay extra to check my bags in at the airport or choose and pay for the last available seats. Either way they squeezed every last penny out of us."
Cons: "i had to pay my on board luggage, the chair doesn't reclinate, no food, no intertainment and the price was not that cheap to justify all of these down sides"
Cons: "I DON'T WANT ANY FLIGHT CREDITS."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Do not like the pay more for larger seat or exit row. Flight was uneventful. Staff on board very pleasant."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The plane took off about a half hour late because they switched our gate at the time we were supposed to start boarding. Everyone had to be moved from one end of the terminal to the other."
Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The best part of my flight to Atlanta was the price. The service for this leg from checking in through landing was excellent. The seats were pretty comfortable (although I'm not sure they reclined - couldn't see how they would), flight attendants friendly and capable, and I appreciated the announcement re where to find our checked bags."
Cons: "I didn't order coffee during this leg, having ordered it on my trip out and finding that it tasted like instant machine coffee.... I had an aisle seat, and the mother and young son next to me talked loudly during the entire flight, making it hard to concentrate in my reading in spite of wearing earplugs. But this has nothing to do with Spirit - simply their ignorance and lack of consideration and my being unwilling to speak with them about it."
Pros: "Nothing at all. Worst experience ever in 34 years of travelling."
Cons: "First answer is selfexplanatory!"
Pros: "Landed Safely"
Cons: "Seats were cramped. Had to streatch out legs and couldn't. Gentleman next to me was 6ft 6inches and was visibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The only thing to like about my flight was Spirit was the cost of the flight availability, but in evaluation the cost just isn't worth it"
Cons: "Spirit does not participate in TSA Pre check, which wasn't communicated during my purchase, which caused me to almost miss my flight due to security. You are required to pay for drinks and food, but the quality is sub par and not worth the price. Seats do not recline , which is not great for a flight longer than two hours."
Cons: "there is no free luggage. the luggage fee even more than the ticket."
Pros: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."
Cons: "Sitting up straight is your only option if you are tall. And forget about trying to get something out of you bag that is at your feet. And if you don't mind knees in your back the entire flight you will be ok. And the person in front of you might be just as uncomfortable and will slam back into your knees just trying to get an ounce of comfort."
Pros: "New euipment."
Cons: "Final cost was deceiving."
Pros: "Flight cancelled twice on two separate days. Little compassion by the staff. Waiting room at O'hare was filthy, seats ripped with stuffing hanging outl. The discounted price is not worth the inconsistent and terrible service. Eventually rescheduled with another airline."
Cons: "Additional fees for everything the rude staff and uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "I had NO IDEA bringing the bag as a carryon was an additional $55 each way. I could have bought a ticket on a better airline for cheaper if I had known. Also, no wifi at all (even for sale) and you can't even get a glass of water without paying for it. Then they push the Spirit airlines credit card on you. Tacky. Awful."
Pros: "The trip was good I think they did the Best"
Cons: "I don't like that they allow people with carry-ons larger than the specified sizes. I was careful to follow the guidelines, which were hard to find anyway. I don't like the credit card sales pitch on each flight."
