Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "Copa check-in in Chicago was awful, and it wasn’t just for my family and me. The manger and several employees were rude and seemed clueless about what they were doing. I shouldn’t be surprised that none of our luggage arrived because of the unorganized check-in but it just added to the frustration."
Pros: "On the flight from Chicago to Panamá crew was exceptional, friendly and attentive, I was very impressed with the service,PLEASE DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING , from Panamá to Costa Rica the crew was completely different, the service was efficient but not friendly, a smiling face makes a difference."
Cons: "The process of boarding was a little confusing but it went quickly, keep up the good work"
Cons: "Food on COPA is terrible."
Pros: "There is nothing to like because this flight never happened."
Cons: "Instead of going Chicago -> Panama City I was routed to Chicago --> Newark --> Bogota --> Cartagena. This means instead of arriving 8pm, I would now be arriving 8am the following day (I actually arrived after 1pm, so all in, it was about 30 hours of travel experience). At the request of the United agent in Minneapolis, I got in Customer Service line in Chicago to have my bags properly transferred to my connecting flights. After an hour in line, the agent proved to me by showing me the screen she was working on, that my bags would be routed directly to my final destination. She was confused why I was told to even come in line, so, great, another hour wasted."

I would for sure use Copa Airlines for future South American trips"

Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Cons: "The United mobile app as well as my emails stated that the gate was B3. Upon arriving at gate B3 and attempting to board, I was alerted that I was at the incorrect gate. The gate was switched to C11. However, my app did not alert me nore did it reflect the gate change. I didn't receive a text or email update. I had to run to the different concourse nearly missing the fling."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed. It was bade enough the first flight was delayed almost an hour, but this flight also left late from the gate."
Pros: "No service issues. Our seats were arranged so the family was together for no charge. We were given a bottle of water to mix baby formula for no charge."
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude, for no reason at all. I had no idea the seats did NOT recline. After paying for your bags and seat selection you are better off flying on a typical airline. We flew Chicago to Seattle, we are not big people, but a 4 hour flight is claustrophobic with this airline."
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "Utilization of Kiosk, check-in, boarding, crew, and pilots. The seats were clean, too. Thank you very much :) !! Flight was also on-time for departure and arrival at destination. * In the Review, put my name as Anonymous. Thank you."
Cons: "Prices for beverages, food, and/or snacks are extremely HIGH! $3 USD for a 12 oz. can of pop OR WATER (16-20 oz) ? ! ! $7 USD for a 5-6 oz bottle of wine ?! The prices are ridiculous!! You can't get water to cry with or if you were on fire. Upon viewing your menu, there is a "bundle" for three or more items. This IS NOT a bargain. You decrease the price by a dollar is nothing. It appears to be overly enrichment and a rip-off. I know that you're in business to make a profit. But dayumm!! REALLY??! You all are certainly taking advantage of your customers. There may be either a continued decrease of purchases or none at all. I noticed that there weren't many purchases in relation to the number of passengers on board at the time. BTW, the price paid for the single bottle of wine ($7 USD) is what it costs for the 4-pack, if not less. A person can purchase 750 ml or 1/5 gallon for the same amount or less (i.e., $5 USD + tax). This is wrong and obliges passenger to make a grudging purchase out of necessity. Have you ever been thirsty before? Can't have water to take medications without spending large amount of money. You can't even get tap water or courtesy cup of water / ice. What type of mess is this? $50+ bag check fee is horrendous!! Your competitors are much cheaper. Please add more cushion and room to your seats. Had this flight been more than 90 mins., I'd be making a trip to the hospital instead of home."
Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
Pros: "Not that many passengers so many of us got our own row! All the extra fees though? Just fly on a nicer airline, cost ends up being the same with better service."
Cons: "Crew was loud and ubnoxious while we waited to board. On the unprofessional side. Flight attendants were going on about their social lives and my kids didn’t need to hear all that adult stuff. Fees?! Oh smack. Get ready! Take lots of extra $$"
Pros: "The fare made it affordable to travel. The Spirit website had great explanations!"
Cons: "The fare is great and the explanations of how it all works on the website is great, but difficult to get all you need in a bag of the required size."
Pros: "No way to contact wheelchair assistance when being dropped of to begin flight. Waited 30 minuted for a wheelchair. Had to ask Amer.Air agent for help. Other airlines are far more attentive. Seats need 2 more inches, felt squished. Very costly baggage policy, charge for carry- ons."
Pros: "Pilots did a Great Job navigating through storms!"
Cons: "Charged $84 for my husband's & my little carry on small pull along suitcase. What a rip off!"
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Friendly staff, fast flight, and no frills fares. They'll charge you for drinks, etc., But overall a good flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no free water."
Pros: "Glad I tried spirit! Got me in early on both legs of my flight! Also glad I got the comfy seat-SO worth the money!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "This is the worst airline. Extremely chaotic boarding, it seemed like I was in a third-world country. Nothing about this airline is good. They lure you in with cheap airfare though when you begin to add costs for everything they charge separately it's cheaper to fly AA or United or Southwest. The charge for WATER on the plane. The list of everything I don't like is too long for me to waste my time on this most substandard of the substandard airlines."
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "Change of gate wasn't fun but it was handled professional."
Cons: "Slightly less expensive ticket not worth it. $52 for checked bag. $56 for carry on bag. They charge for a plastic cup of water on flight. Seats have no leg room and do not recline. Poor communications at gate. Few gates for Spirit, so if flight is delayed, plane has nowhere to let passengers off when landing. We were already hours late, and then had to wait 45 minutes for a gate once on the ground."
Pros: "Of the 6 flights I took with Spirit on this trip, this was the only one where they boarded the flight in a timely and organized manner by using the zones printed on the boarding passes."
Cons: "Spirit airlines cancelled my flight the day of travel."
Pros: "Nothing. I was treated so poorly I walked away from their customer service and bought a ticket on another airline."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late over their 45 minute required check in window. So they cancelled my ticket. For $100 they offered to reschedule me. And for another $50 they would check my bag. On a different airline I paid another $100 and got a complete round trip ticket, about 10 minutes later."
Pros: "Nothing, it was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. The crew was nice but there was a lot of shotty things going on with the aircraft that I've never experienced."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times then rescheduled back on time. Seats were worse than hard plastic ones from gradeschool, my back is still hurting me. Oxygen masks came down during the flight which worried me. Plane made all sorts of weird noises. Plane was filthy when we boarded. There were crumbs and food all over the floor. I would never suggest flying with Spirit, super unreliable."
Pros: "The crew was nicer on this flight. They made more of an effort and the temp was much more comfortable."
Cons: "They don't give you water or snacks. You have to pay to pick your seat and CARRY ON your luggage. The hidden fees surpass the cheap flight"
Pros: "Nothing except the price"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Low cost base ticket"
Cons: "Baggage fees added 80 to the flight cost and seat fees would have added another 40 if I paid them. If I knew that when I bought the ticket I would have gone with another airline. Oh, and no TSA pre-check option at O'hare"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I thought I was saving money booking thru kayak, I did not know I would have to pay for my bags too. I thought carry on some were included in the quoted price"
Cons: "No coomwnts on the airlines. It could br great if you provide atleast water yo the passengers"
Cons: "they were rude and uncooperative. They have no type of customer service. If you ask them a question they are short and direct. If you try to work out to find a solution...they just are plain rude and do not make an effort whatsoever to accommodate their customers. They abide by their ridiculous rules and plainly will not work with you. Besides that they started to charge for separate baggage fees. So you'll but a ticket for "cheap" but then they will charge you double for baggage both ways. My boyfriend purchased a ticket and wanted to make changes...they wanted to charge him $100 to change flight info. RIDICULOUS. He ended buying another ticket....Spirit took $200 in fees extra from us."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and the check in process was easy."
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable and I didn't like that food wasn't included but it was a short flight so it was OK."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "Switched gates at last minute, plane was late, pilot made up time in air."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. And, a woman next to me asked for some water and the flight attendant says, "$3 for a bottle." This is very disrespectful and classist. Not everyone has $3, and I could tell that she didn't. Also, the plane made a terribly loud noise. I feared for my life! The flight was delayed but the crew did not give us updates.... We simply waited. And waited."
Pros: "..."
Cons: "Flight crew in Atlanta didn't inform us that we could not go to Panama on a one-way ticket and we didn't find out that we couldn't until we got to fort lauderdale. The first flight to Panama was CANCELED....then, when we went back the next day to check in and get our boarding passes, we were told we could not go to Panama unless we paid for a return flight. This was our first time flying international, so we were unaware of that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no reason given, the tray tables were too small, the seats were too narrow"
Cons: "Got bumped from flight because it was oversold. Personnel helped find flight on a different airline the next day. But that was not a direct flight and it was a major inconvenience to arrive a day later than planned."
Pros: "There was nothing that i liked ."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Excessive charge for carry on luggage - $45 each way Bait and switch tactics by pricing the ticket price low and then charging for EVERYTHING. Flight crew has nothing much to do but stand around and gossip"
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Portland was seamless once it left the airport. I don't know if the delay was a Spirit Airlines or O'hare issue, but the result was a significant delay."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Everything with spirit is terrible. The trick prices (you think it's cheap??? Not if you want a seat, a bag, a drink, to breathe!!), the terrifying folding chair seats, the horrible leg room, the worst service. Now I remember why I NEVER should EVER fly spirit."
Pros: "They try to get money in every way possible. They give you a good price on the flight ticket and then they get you on your luggage in a terrible way. 40 pounds instead of 50 like every one else. You have to pay for the carry on as well. They won't even give you water. First and last time with them. No thanks."
Cons: "I hate their crooked way to do business."
Pros: "we flew from oakland to ohare for the first time on Spirit airlines and we were very impressed. We left on time - or even a minute or two early - and landed safely. what more could we ask? The staff was friendly and the plane was clean. two thumbs up!"
Pros: "Nothing. The crew is rude and the gate staff in Chicago are some of the meanest, most unbelievably careless people I have met in my 20 years of constant travel"
Cons: "I don't like when planes leave before they are scheduled to leave with my luggage. We were standing at the gate 15 minutes before the departure time but they had already given our seats away"
Pros: "Met some pretty cool people in the seats next to us. Bathrooms were clean, easy to use, and easy to access. They had a bathroom light viable to all passengers to see whether or not they were occupied for all 3 bathrooms, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "My only complaint was that during our layover in Chicago we couldn't get off of the plane to get food. Eventually we just bought food on the flight because our trip in total was about 6 hours of flying. I wish there was more food options. Oh, and the crying baby behind us wasn't the best either, but we drowned it out with conversation."
Pros: "Crew and flight was very good"
Cons: "This was the second time I flew to MN with Spirit first time my return was cancelled and this time was delayed by an hours and delayed take off and delayed at Ohare"
Cons: "had to buy a new ticket from American and spend an additional $300. Stay away from Spirit"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. The staff did not inform us of the several delays. Only notification that was given was a gate change. We didn't have a pilot so we sat in the plane forever. Horrible service, but u get what u pay for with with spirit. Learned my lesson and will pay little extra to not fly spirit airlines."
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 crew on the plane was great. Friendly, polite quick. Too bad they were like cops dealing with people that would not turn off their phones or stay in their seats."
Cons: "The Spirit counter had 2 people working and no customers. Would not give me a seat number. Gate agent had 40 people in line and was by herself. Seems odd to hold up people boarding while I got in line to get my seat number. Also the baggage fee really does suck. $50+ for a carry on was cheapest option. Passengers caused issues the whole time. Police called and met them on exit from the plane. Frontier is the better way to go out of the two sister airlines."
Pros: "The big seat that I upgraded to for $35 one way was nice - essentially a business class seat. The crew were helpful and pleasant, and the boarding process was well-organized."
Cons: "If I had known the philosophy of this airline ("bare fare" plus pay more than average prices for all other upgrades, including water on the flight), I never would have booked with this airline. Checked luggage is more expensive with Spirit than with other airlines, and fees are almost double at the airport if you don't pay ahead of time. Carry on bags are also an extra fee; only your personal item is free. If you have orthopedic challenges and a long flight, pick a different airline - only the extra cost seats ($35 each way) recline at all. This airline was more expensive to fly than the airlines I normally fly, once I added what I consider to be basic needs. It would have been nice to have this information (especially about the seats) available when I booked on Kayak."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Canceled flight right before boarding. People at the gate were very rude. Made everyone leave and go out past security to the front gate to even know what was going on. Many Sprit employees knew that there were no more flights but wouldn't tell us. Made us all wait in line. They refused to help us find another flight. I will never again fly this airline."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not the best experience. Your airline is awful!"
Cons: "The price goes up so quickly. Also the website was down and when they were going to help me via the phone, they said I would be charged $100 as opposed to $35. It was awful."
