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."

Pros: "puntual with great service"

Pros: "Wouldn’t let me on the flight."
Cons: "After checking in via the mobile app, the front desk said they didn’t have me registered therefore didn’t know I was coming despite being at the gate well before the flight departed. Additionally, Kayak made it extremely difficult to consult with the issue. Very dissatisfied with the whole experience."
Pros: "Friendly service, food and drink included, and free luggage. Seats had limited leg room, but otherwise comfortable. Would select this airline again!"
Cons: "Older plane with less room from Chicago to Panama, but other than that everything was great."
Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "Maybe more entertainment for a 5 hour flight"
Pros: "My trip went really smooth with no delays. They were able to switch my seat to be closer to my friends that were flying with me with no hassle at all. I was surprise that they provided food on the trip, I have been in different airlines that don’t provide anything except for a drink. I would for sure use Copa Airlines for future South American trips"
Cons: "Only thing I might of dislike is that they were using an older plane and the tv quality was not good"
Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"
Pros: "Nothing. Even when it's the cheapest flight, th insignificant price difference vs. other airlines doesn't compensate the awful experience"
Cons: "The treatment of the crew was unrespectul. The food is extremely bad. The airplane and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Duration of flight."
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: "Service of crew excellent. On time and good arrival. Web check in let me pick my seat. And nice stewardesses"
Pros: "Flight was on time and affordable."
Cons: "No drinks were served in first 2 hours, and meal was very small. Also no customs forms were handed out in the flight, so it too a while in the airport to fill it out."
Pros: "Loved that I was able to take 2 suitcases with me... Happy about meals on flights and headphones! Captain kept us informed at all times about everything!"
Cons: "my table was dirty and I noticed right before my meal was served."
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."
Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline and there is almost no entertainment."
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: "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: "Food and drinks."
Cons: "Bad entertainment selection and screen."
Cons: "Not enough smiling from the crew"
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."
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."
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."
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"
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: "It was really nice . Though I was a bit late but everybody there was very cooperative and managed me to grab the flight . Much appreciated."
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."
