Flights to Ecuador have now resumed.
Special 'travel corridors' exist for tourists visiting the Galapagos. Foreigners wishing to enter the islands must present a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19, taken 96 hours prior to the date of departure to Ecuador. On arrival in Ecuador, tourists may be requested to take another PCR test, at their own expense. Tourists must also present a return flight and a safe passage document (‘salvoconducto’) issued by the Ministry of Tourism to be exempt from doing 14 days of self-isolation on the islands. The tour operators or hotels are responsible for arranging this safe passage document on behalf of tourists, given that visitors are required to have previous contracted travel and accommodation arrangements. The Galapagos Transit Control Card, will need to be filled out online at least 24 hours before the flight. On arrival in Ecuador you will be required to fill in a Health Status Declaration, including a local address.
Travelers must present a completed Health Form and a completed Immigration form as well as a negative PCR test for COVID-19 issued within 10 days before arrival. Travelers without a qualifying test result will be tested upon arrival.
Arriving travelers with a valid test certificate no longer need to enter quarantine unless they present symptoms of coronavirus. Those without one will be tested and sent to quarantine while awaiting results and until receiving a negative testing result. More information is available here.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was exellent"
Cons: "The food quality needs to improve."
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."

Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"

Pros: "The flight was fine. I don’t do 5 stars ever since they started pushing the limits on seating. I also have a problem with the wide swing in prices for the same flight but know that is marketing."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded for anyone to be truly comfortable"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."

Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."

Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"

Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."

Cons: "The price."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."

Pros: "Extremely miserable"
Cons: "Lots of delays and surprise cancelations"
Pros: "Great service. On time flight."
Cons: "I reserved my ticket through Kayak.com. They auto populated my name and added my maiden name. Because that did not match my passport I was charged $50 at the counter to make the name change. Additionally this took a very long time and we almost missed our flight. I am currently fighting with the airline to get reimbursed."

Cons: "More options for food in business class"

Cons: "There was not much entertainment. And just like the food, no choices of programs."
Cons: "Boarding process for Copa 808 from Panama City to JFK on 8/25/2019 was mob-like. Attitude of security personnel was unhelpful/resentful when trying to use Star Alliance Gold Lane (Have Premier Platinum on United). My wife got “selected” for special security screening. Almost missed flight."

Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "The cree was very accommodating. The comfort level was adequate. The food was not very good."

Cons: "Now they turn off the air conditioner. Terrible so hot. Dont bring any more a decent food"

Cons: "No coffee :("
Cons: "The plane was very old and bad food"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the entertainment on the little TV was great."
Cons: "The next morning when we returned to the airport to get our boarding passes, it was mayhem at the ticket counter. People waited so long that they missed the next flight. People were so angry - they were crying and shouting. It seemed line no one could control the lines of people who were waiting. The bold ones (like me) moved into other lines that were moving faster and got service, while others in the general boarding line had to wait and wait. It was so sad. The food was really bad - the past and chicken were terrible."
Pros: "I upgraded to Business Class, the flight attendant was kind, helpful, and attentive. She came by and immediately took my order for a drink ask me what kind of dinner I would like and ensured I had everything I needed. In addition, the seats were extremely spacious and allowed me to recline almost fully. Definitely enjoyed the flight a ton more and would fly again."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."
Cons: "Food. Too simple"
Pros: "Great inflight service"
Cons: "15 minutes waiting in line for boarding"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better plane, better notice on delays, not only to weather"
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "I made it alive"
Cons: "American airlines will leave you out to dry if there are any issues. Never had so many issues with the same airline."

Cons: "No seat power, poor connection for movies and they kept freezing"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Cons: "They didn’t turn on the AC. Terrible service"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."

Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Cons: "I believe there should be two staff to serve as for one it looks like too much."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Cons: "There was only a shared screen. And the AA Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and caring"
Cons: "The music and entertainment collection was very limited"
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."

Pros: "Their Miami weather recovery of service during stressful & tragic times."
Pros: "Food and a/c"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "Nothing. Someday the airline industry will be disrupted and we'll all remember this and say, "can you believe what we used to put up with, and how expensive it was?!""

Pros: "it was on time and the flight was without incident"
Cons: "the food was terrible, even by airplane standards no personal entertainment system"
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Pros: "Flight was early both ways. Pleasant experience"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Pros: "The flight attendants were not only exceedingly courteous, but they also knew how to put their guests in a good mood. They had fun with their job, which put me in a much better mood than I would have otherwise been in. Also, flight was efficient."
Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Cons: "The food (only in some cases) could have been better. The jet from Chicago to Zurich had multiple mechanical issues that delayed the flight considerably."
Pros: "Efficient crew and easy boarding."
Cons: "No frills but ok."
Cons: "Couldn’t understand what the crew was saying. Had to wait 29 minutes on plane after landing for a gate. The entertainment was annoying and the screen would not shut off. I did not purchase direct tv because I do not was to buy a product to watch advertisements. If you offer it then there should be an option to TURN OFF THE SCREEN it is super annoying"
Pros: "Free coffee."
Pros: "The check in was great. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was very small and hot. There was no space for even my legs."
Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"
Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Small seats and not much leg room."
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "The Inited Club"
Cons: "Flight never took off due to engine problems, That is understandable. What was not fun was the "every man for himself" trying to get to an agent to get alternate flights out. If you were sitting at the back the of the plane you obviously we're at the back of a long line and had no good options by the time you got to someone"
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
Pros: "Fastest boarding of a large aircraft I have ever experienced. They did it right by boarding from the rear of the aircraft forward. Flight attendants were courteous and very efficient. All seats were preset up with a pillow, blanket and headphones. The food was the best I have ever tasted on a scheduled flight. Much shorter flight than I expected."
Cons: "I really can not think of anything that I did not like about Aer Lingus."
Pros: "I loved that I got to the counter to check in and get my tickets and the lady behind the counter ( can't remember her name) asked me if I wanted to keep my flight or take a nonstop flight to Milwaukee. I obviously took the nonstop flight."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "The airport"
Cons: "Crew allowed other passengers to put more luggage in than me. I had to go hunt for space. United cheated me."
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connection. United made no effort to help find a new flight. They stranded my at an airport for 12 and never even apologized."
Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"
Cons: "I sat between two oversized men and was uncomfortable the whole flight"
Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."
Pros: "No hassles. perfect flight for a great vacation."
Pros: "The seats were roomy enough. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight within itself was not a problem. However there was a hold up because on weather which is not a problem better safe than sorry. But trying to make our connecting flight was the problem we asked over and over for information on if we were to make our connecting flight and no one seem to be able to give us a relatively fair answer on what we were to do because of the delays. Needless to say we missed our connecting flight in New Jersey they shut the door and said we could not board, that's OK if that was the rules but what to do next was the problem, no one could seemingly help us.We had to walk around to find someone to help us to only be told that we can just get the next flight but we had to go to customer service to get re-ticketed which was making us missed even another flight the lines in customer service were extremely long and they were going extremely slow so I had to jump out of line and go to a gate in which someone help me get re-ticketed to catch the next flight. We were to have someone to meet us in London in which we had no way to connect with them to tell them we were going to be 2 to 3 hours late. Once we got on a flight the plane was clean, the seats were spacious enough for economy and the staff was friendly but coming through New Jersey was not what I would want to do again but I had a flight back coming through. The horror!"

Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."
Pros: "That it was direct form Cleveland to LA and it left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Chairs are so tight and hardly move back enough. Why can't they have some form of lumbar support?"
Pros: "Loved the fact that there was leg room !!"

Cons: "Nothin. Everything was good."
Pros: "Staff at the customer service counter was much more helpful and accommodating than at the gate. They booked us on the next flight leaving and booked us on another connecting flight since we were going to miss our original flight due to the United delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the staff at the gate was very unhelpful rescheduling our flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Baggage was not assigned a carrousel. After asking where it will show up, I received a verbal carrousel assignment. Almost a hour after landing, no baggage showed up. We finally found it at the unclaimed baggage."
Pros: "I had a very pleasnt experience except the seat rows were SO small and my seat didn't recline. I am only 5ft 4in and I felt uncomfortable. The woman next to me was cleary very uncomfortable. This was my first time flying United in a while and I will definitely avoid UA in the future for long flights."
Pros: "The connecting flight from Dulles to Philadelphia was CANCELED AFTER we were half way, with very little concern how any of us would get to our final destination. We had to pay out of pocket to get a ride. Had I wanted to be on the highway I would have driven myself!"
Pros: "Friendly personality of flight attendant."
Cons: "Did not "wow" me with service."
Pros: "Relatively easy to change flights due to weather delays"
Cons: "United personnel did not seem too chipper."
Pros: "The pilots flew quickly and the crew was understanding about the delay."
Cons: "It was delayed by about 3 hours. I'm 3/4 on delayed spirit flights and probably will never fly spirit again because of these delays."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, take off and landing excellent. Late Departure was the only real negative to the flight. Their flight attendant that did the announcements was funny and relatable."
Cons: "The seats are horrible. The late departure was annoying, but I had not connections or appointments that were effected."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and i didnt recieve a call or email"
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable!! Flight was delayed, not worth paying less"
Pros: "Everything worked flawlessly. No problems. Nice people."
Cons: "Spirit treats people worse than any other airline. Least amount of legroom, no reclining, deceptive and excessive fees for baggage. Avoid like the plague."
Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed due to tech problems. Staff lied and said it was weather, found out later from pilot it wasn't. Missed my connecting int'l flight, had to pay $450 out of pocket. Spirit doesn't want to reimburse and instead offered $50 voucher. $50?? That is how much they charge for 1 bag. Ridiculous. My first experience with Spirit and may be the last unless they reimburse me. In LAX they make you check in "online" on a kiosk (presumably to save you time), then make you wait in line for another hour to drop your bag off. WTH? What's the point of that charade? Worst check-in experience of my life. This airline won't last long if they treat people this way. Their own staff appeared miserable and on the verge of homicide or suicide. No wonder."
Cons: "Every leg of flight was delayed 2 + hours the whole trip was horrible"
Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "my seat did not have a emergency pamphlet - this may be the way we flly now - but it appeared just a bit cheap charging for everything. - it makes me wonder if the maintenance is done regularly."
Cons: "The seats were small."
Pros: "Very smooth. The flight was full but the attendants were super welcoming and attentive. Could have been a little more leg room. Buy for an economy flight, it was just fine. Boarded a bit late but departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "The flight take off was delayed only briefly, but it arrived on time. The time for departure was very convenient for us."
Cons: "My 16 month old granddaughter's car seat and stroller was supposed to be delivered at the gait, but instead was delivered at the baggage claim area. The car seat was soaking wet and we had to use her blanket and some other clothing to make it partially suitable for her sit in her car seat. We fly 2-4 times a year on different airlines and with the pre-check status we are able to get through security rather quickly. In the absence of pre-check (because Spirit airlines does not have that facility) we were in the security check line for a long time. Our grand- daughter was upset and crying. Fortunately, eventually someone from the security department came to our assistance and expedited her and her parents' clearance"
Pros: "Everything was great especially the price."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline, other than that no big deal."
Pros: "Low cost travel."
Cons: "We got non-reclining seats at the back row of a full flight. Somewhat restrictive but we arrived at the same time as everyone else."
Pros: "You can't find a better bargain than this airline. Yea that don't offer the in-flight amenities like peanuts and pop (free) but who cares."
Cons: "The only flights that were delayed out of Cleveland were Sprit flights. We were 1.5 hours late and I didn't receive an email notification. Just before we left home we got an email from Kayak that said the flight was on time."
Cons: "Luggage weigh cost delayed flights both ways"
Cons: "2 hour delay, uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "The time for checked luggage to get to the baggage area was terrible! Had to wait almost an hour."
Pros: "Efficient and quick boarding. Helpful and courteous staff. Humorous flight crew. Great value and no layovers necessary. Will fly Spirit again"
Cons: "Wish they participated in TSA PRECHECK."
Pros: "good fare"
Cons: "Hard to travel if charged for carry on . Delayed by one hr and half"
Cons: "It was delayed five times and then cancelled. There was no flight to Tampa."
Cons: "No food , no entertainment,no room to seat- misleading ticket price"
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was even remotely to what I would call satisfactory. Nor redeeming."
Cons: "This time of year was spent more so in airports waiting for delays and dealing with bad weather and LACK of contingency plans to get THIS flight replaced since this worthless cheap company didn't offer a replacement within 24 hours of this CANCELLED flight. The problem with an airline is not about the price it's about dealing with customers who are STRANDED during the holidays. I had an international flight on the 31st to get back abroad where I study. It was upsetting the lack of service to get my flight rescheduled, it was highly unprofessional how they didn't have a rational solution to get back on the 29th of december. I wish this site, would take over and help us rebook our flight. The problem with our service from Spirit was they would reimburse both flights, but then I would have to go to an airport would be taking a risk to not get a flight when driving 1-5 hours to airports around throwing away valuable time. They said they would give a $50 voucher for a reduction in another flight, but this is NOT at all enough to compensate for the stress I (and my family) were put through. This is the worst experience with an airline I have ever had used. I would not EVER recommend this to anyone flying."
Pros: "The price was attractive. Too bad it was fruitless."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, I was informed that my flight was canceled. They robotically said that the next flight isn't until over a week later (well after my scheduled vacation ends), and offered a refund as the only thing they could do. Frankly, a refund is literally the least they could do; there was no effort put into finding an alternate flight or offering other means of compensation for the inconvenience. Had I been in charge of this, I probably would have offered at least a voucher for a discounted future flight, so as to promote further patronage. When I asked why it had been canceled, they said some ambiguous nonsense about security in Fort Myers. When I then called Spirit Airlines, they said it was due to weather. Furthermore, the agent on the phone was equally unhelpful and uncaring as those in person. She explained that because I accepted the refund, there's nothing else they can offer. I tried to explain that those at the counter gave me a refund because it was the only option. In short, this was my first experience with Spirit, and I got the distinct impression that they had no interest in customer satisfaction whatsoever; they are solely in it for the monetary exchange. Once that transaction is complete, they want to be rid of you."
Cons: "Baggage claim took 50 minutes 40lb weight limit on bags After you buy tickets they add every fee imaginable Have to pay to pick a seat Fly southwest if at all possible They don't tell you until after you purchase the tickets that it doesn't include luggage or choosing a seat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly & boarding was quick."
Cons: "Bought flight because it was cheapest advertised; however, paid $36 for my one carry-on and another $56 for my one checked bag! The $25 extra was due to it being over their 40# weight limit (other airlines allow 50#). I'm very petite (5'2" & 105#), but still felt the seat was extremely small! Upon landing, there wasn't a gate available; so we waited nearly an hour to de board the plane. The passenger next to me said that's happened 4 of the 5 times he's flown Spirit (1-3 hour waits!!). Lastly, our luggage took a considerably ling time to arrive at baggage claim. Although we landed by 6:43, it was 8:30 before I had my bag and could leave the airport."
Pros: "5 flights in a row and its always been a huge Frick end delay and not arriving unyil.hours later. I'm done with spirit for good"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Rescheduled for following day."
Cons: "Just really unorganized. I don't complain much but honestly I would rather spend a couple $100 more to fly a different airline. They get you from point a to point b just expect a lot of delays. Don't fly this airline if you want to be on time for anything. Seats are really uncomfortable."
Cons: "if the plane had not been an hour late, this Spirit flight would have rated "OKAY". first time with them, and they lived up to their "a la carte" rep. i am sure i am not the first person to joke about this, but i was shocked that i didn't have to slip a fiver into a slot in order to use the toilet. with all the add-ons, there is absolutely no benefit price-wise to flying with them. if you are carrying one small item, traveling alone, not in a hurry, i bet you'd love 'em. but any normal adult would feel cramped/gouged/abused. what a weird business model - folksy/hip/sarcastic ad copy that jokes about the lousy treatment you can expect to receive. such is the new economy."
Pros: "Price..super obnoxious flight attendant.. She tried to be funny but was insulting.. At the end of flight said if we didn't like flying Spirit..try Jetblue"
Cons: "Landed at 6:27pm....did not get off plane until 8pm. Very frustrating having to sit on the plane that long because the "gate was not ready" and it would be "10 to 15 minutes""
Pros: "My first time flying a low cost carrier, I was impressed. I hope Spirit realize those planes won't stay new forever and need to maintain the interiors to keep that new look. The staff in general were courteous and competent I would fly them again."
Pros: "Very very nice aircraft !! Brand new airbus a320 very clean and quiet. The seat i purchsed was as expected(Big fromt seat). Pleny of leg room and space between the other passenger. Crew was not so friendly. Pilots did a great job very smoth ride and nice take off and landing."
Cons: "The price for this airline ticket ended up being much more than expected. Pay for carry on and seats etc. had a real hard time printing my borarding pass beacuse you cant print it from your phone or get an e-ticket. It has to b done on a land based computer. All of which i was never told during orignal purchase."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the non stop routing. Opposition is mostly with a change. But the seats are terrible (I am tall) and the over head binds are very dangerous. (I am tall and have a scar to support the poor, old fashioned overhead bins."
Cons: "The attendants seem to have a competion going for "who can butcher the announcements by speaking rapidly and harshly. It added to the sophomoric attitude thought."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats are small, hard and don't recline. The cabin was very warm through out the trip. Even a cup of water comes with a charge."
Pros: "Nice smooth ride"
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Pros: "The crew was great and had a sense of humor. The seats don't recline and every drink or available food you have to purchase."
Cons: "The seats aren't good and you have to purchase your seat for additional fee. The drinks and food was an additional fee and carry on luggage is additional fee. So on top of my ( I thought) was an inexpensive ticket was additional charges of $210.00 for my husband and myself luggage. Then....they lost my luggage and I had to wait over 24 hours to receive it. I received it and my luggage tag was ripped off the luggage and the zipper was broken on a bag that was less than six months old! Very disappointed. I will NOT fly this airline ever again. Everyone that I have talked to since said the same thing. I'll stick to United and Southwest for all my future trips!"
Pros: "Plenty of room. Seat were great employees were great. Will be using the airline more often"
Pros: "The price was great. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "That they charge extra for bags that used to be considered a carry on."
Pros: "Very efficient Well run. Well organized"
Cons: "My bag was damaged. Ripped a big hole in the bag I checked. I just bought this bag to travel. Disappointed about the damage. But things happen."
Pros: "Good flight good crew!!!"
Pros: "Have a great flight."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "This flight was too long not to have reclining seats."
Pros: "I liked the price and that a direct flight is offered between these two cities."
Cons: "The airline employee to passenger relationship = rude, ground crew. I think the lower level employees need to go and people who actually want a good job and that would represent this airline positively should be sought after. The seats are really small, I am a small person and I had a difficult time on this flight, very uncomfortable and way too small of an area. No Complimentary drinks was new to me, that is not negative just different."
Pros: "The flight went well"
