At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."

Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."

Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."

Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."

Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Delta Club"

Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Unable to get seat assignments until check-in (overbooked); therefore, my wife and I sat in middle seats on different rows. Boarding is an exercise to continue the "caste system" between 1st class passengers and coach with the "priority boarding" line and the "general boarding" side of the turnstile...what a joke! Richard Anderson, CEO comes on the recording and tells us how great Delta is and then every Delta employee on the flight try to disprove his flowery speech. We paid $50 to pre check luggage then have to fight for a place in the overhead storage for a small backpack and a coat because of all the possessions priority passengers bring onboard. Thanks for the coke..."

Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."

Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Rompieron una maleta y la otra sacaron cosas encima me hicieron esperar en Panama 10 Horas, teniendo asientos disponibles , es la primera vez q tomo esa aerolínea y que decepciónada estoy"

Pros: "My experience with Copa is that they are efficient yet customer friendly and changing planes in Panamá on trips to South America is usually quite convenient."
Cons: "Copa has a tendency to leave the "Fasten seatbelt" sign on for long periods of time, even when there is little to no turbulence. This makes it difficult to know when to move around which is unfortunate on a 6+ hour flight."

Pros: "Crew and staff were very helpful and nice."
Cons: "Plane could be cleaner."

Cons: "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is an awful movie, but that’s not your fault, I blame the cast & Directer. ;)"

Pros: "See first review"
Cons: "See first review"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very rude"

Cons: "Transfer time un Panamá was Too short"

Pros: "A very good flight except for the meal. The seats were comfortable and the crew friendly. The connecting time in Panama City was spot-on and worked like clock-work. We deboarded and walked down a couple of gates and were boarding our flight to Lima in 15 minutes. I would recommend Copa at anytime. Our price was incredible and we got SO much more than we paid for which is unusual today."
Cons: "I was spoiled on an earlier leg of our flight with the selection of entertainment. On this flight there was only one in-flight selection played on the various monitors."

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Terrible movie choice. Old equipment. Flight was freezing cold and no blankets provided. Uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "The crew at the gate was extremely rude, didn't even called the flight other than once announcing we were gonna start boarding. Then I have 2 infants and when I asked about priority seating, you would have thought I asked her for a free flight because I got such a nasty response, not only me but she yelled at a guy in a wheelchair! Because he wanted to go in front of others to get himself settled (he had all the right in the world to do so) I honestly wanted to say a few kind words to this girl but I didn't."

Cons: "Beverages fir 1st class"

Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours weeks before which made the return really inconvenient for my schedule. Then the flight was delayed on the day of the flight until the next day. I did not get to the hotel room until 3:30 AM- 3 hours sleep then back to airport only to have the flight delayed again."

Pros: "The staff was fantastic. Very helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our layover. The only way they initially could correct the issue was by booking us a flight 5 days later. Finally found a helpful person at the gate after calling American Airlines and getting no help. We lost day of our trip, but it’s better than 5."

Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."

Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."

Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."

Pros: "short flight"

Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"

Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."

Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."

Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"

Pros: "Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment."

Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."

Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."

Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."

Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."

Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."

Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."

Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."

Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"

Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Customer service was good, I also liked the text updates."
Cons: "I really dislike that the make you check your carry on now. Most airlines let you take your carry on so I’m used to that. It also originally said $25 but at the check in it was $30. Plus I prefer not to check in my bag because it is faster, but since I did I had to stay at the airport an extra hour."

Pros: "Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time."
Cons: "If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport."

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "No issues"

Cons: "Despite dozens of empty seats in Economy Plus, flight attendants refused to allow anyone to move into the 8 vacant rows keeping us crowded in coach economy."

Pros: "comfortable"

Cons: "Weather delay"

Pros: "Less than an hour in the air- commuter shuttle"

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Air traffic control delay."

Pros: "Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."

Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."
Cons: "The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both."

Cons: "Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "service, custumer attn comunication"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "There was no entertainment alternatives."

Cons: "The small commuter planes used for the trip are not smooth rides at all. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "lots of turbulence but that happens"

Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."

Pros: "Any"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, bad weather was the day before our flight, not the day of our flight (the day of our flight which was sun). We now got rebooked for wed. That's 3 days we didn't plan to be in Columbus oh. That seems excessive."

Cons: "Delays no good..."

Pros: "Trip and treatment were ok... but tv is way expensive. Avianca offers you a wide range of movies and tv series for free."

Pros: "Economy plus seat was nice to have an outlet plug in."

Cons: "Surprised at just water and juice as beverage options."

Cons: "They turned the flight around, getting us home hours later than what was supposed to be"

Pros: "We ended up with the exit row seats - awesome, especially for my 6'6" husband."
Cons: "We each had one bag- a backpack for him and an incredibly small roll bag for me. We were told we absolutely had to check the roll bag as space was limited. There were 3 off duty flight attendants sitting next to me and each had 2 large bags. Multiple other people had multiple oversized bags they were allowed to carry on. This infuriates me. I brought one bag, and a smaller than regulation one at that and I had to check it because other people were allowed to bring multiple bags. If you know a flight will be a tight squeeZe, limit people to one bag each."

Cons: "Rude attendants."

Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."

Cons: "Delayed and delayed and at last cancled the flt. It's Uniteds tradition to cancled the late evening flt. Stupid airlines."

Pros: "attendant was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "flight was late and missed my connection, causing me to wait several houes to nake the connection to SLC"

Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedures by groups. I also was forced to check my carry-on, even though after boarding there was plenty of room in overhead storage. Because I was in group 5, they assumed it would be full. They didn't check or allow me to check."

Pros: "Nothing everything was horrible absolute terrible customer service"
Cons: "Didn't offer vouchers or accomodations Classified delay as weather when we were told in Ohio it was a mechicanical I was extremely distraught began crying horribly became extremely dehydrated & went into urgent care once returning to PHX"

Pros: "Everything was fantastic"

Cons: "It was late boarding and landing. Our bags were sitting in the rain."

Pros: "Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD."
Cons: "United has replaced all gate agents with contractors. It is abundantly clear. No stakes in customer service, these folks are just slightly above automated robots following scripts verbatim with poor skills speaking English."

Pros: "Got home early no delays good seats"
Cons: "All my tickets states see attendant for seat so I was worried I didn't have a seat"

Pros: "Vegetarian food was available and that was the only likeable part for me. Every else was strictly ok."
Cons: "Nothing exceptional. The flight crew definitely needs to to tone down on their attitude and customer service skills. Short distance traveling is fine but definitely not recommended for long distance."

Pros: "That kayak sent me an update on which baggage claim rwmeinal to go to. Had it not been for that I wouldn't been walking up and down Dulles to figure out where my bags were. Thank you kayak"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Overall room"

Cons: "flight was delayed for three hours, not for weather but for a mechanical problems. i'm just happy we didn't have to wait on the plane or for the plane to be replaced"

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight Attendants were unprofessional. It was typical miserable experience on Spirit."

Pros: "Absolutely terrible customer service and process from Spirit."
Cons: "The boarding process, the attitude of the staff, the comfort of the plane..."

Cons: "Left on time."

Pros: "flight was on-time, maybe even a little early, the plane was clean, the boarding process was simple and smooth, the flight attendants were welcoming when getting on the plane."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was just okay, including the flight attendants and pilots, I don't know if they were near the end of their shifts for the day but everything seemed so rushed, they talked very fast, to the point that sometimes it was even difficult to understand."

Cons: "Multiple delays. Better communication"

Pros: "Worst airline"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They said someone called in the middle of the night using my name and they let them cancel my flight. No refund, no other flight. I had to walk over to southwest and purchase a $600 flight just to get to my destination."

Pros: "Fast, efficient, comfortable, cheap"

Pros: "The ease of bording pass."
Cons: "No water on flight."

Pros: "Got on the plane quickly. Crew good. Arrived early."
Cons: "The ticket price- way too much. No options for direct flight time. Had to pay for luggage."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The unexpected delay, overbooking and paperwork mishaps. The flight was supposed to leave at 8 am. Got an email at 5 am saying the flight was delayed two hours for no given reason. Then before we were booking they announced the flight was overbooked by 4 people. That added another time 10 minutes. Then when we’re on the plane it took another 20 minutes for paperwork that wasn’t done correctly. So with no weather issues my scheduled flight at 8 am didn’t take off until 10:55 am."

Pros: "All went smoothly"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight was delayed almost 2 hours which made me miss my connecting flight. I had to purchase a brand new ticket I will never book Spirit again or kayak"

Cons: "They didn’t let board no one at counter"

Pros: "loved that they gave away free miles. on time for everything."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Pay for snacks"

Cons: "Long delay"

Cons: "I was uncomfortable the entire flight. I felt nickled and dined. I probably won't fly spirit again."

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "We waited in our seats after boarding for about an hour or more. We were 30 minutes late to Tampa. The seats didn’t recline which made relaxing for the flight and wait time difficult. Thanks Emily"

Cons: "This flight situation was a disaster. We had a connection. The first flight arrived and sat on the tarmac, until the second flight left. We missed the connection and Spirit would do nothing for us. We had to purchase tickets on our own to complete our journey to our destination. Unbelievable."

Pros: "Everything was just as I expected it to be - no surprises. You literally get what you pay for. Not a bad trip, just no frills."

Pros: "Friendly"

Pros: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "Cost of carry-on"

Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Fees associated with everything, minimal leg room"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The original ticket price was ok but it was barely a positive."
Cons: "The original "cheap" ticket became meaningless when I had to pay 120$ for my bags. Plus pay for water on the flight? The seats don't decline. It is the most uncomfortable airline I've ever flown, and will hopefully never have to fly with spirit air again. The ticket price isn't even that cheap."

Cons: "After flying a dozen times with a suit bag and a backpack that fits under my seat, I've never had a problem The lady checking tickets gave me an ultimatum, either you fit your suit bag in your backpack, or you have to pay $59 for a carry-on bag. No ticket checker has ever said this to me in the past. She was rude, direct and didn't leave me with any other choice. She ignored me after she gave me the ultimatum, while I'm asking if this was a new policy. She gave me the cold shoulder. I was very frustrated, luckily the suit bag fit in my backpack. Then when I got on the plane there was so much space in the overhead bins, so I took out my suit bag and placed it in an overhead bin while the crew was watching. The crew didn't say anything. Your teams need to be more persistent with policy."

Pros: "I like that I got chance to fly on airline that I will never fly on again."
Cons: "Girl Bye ✌"

Cons: "The hidden baggage and seat fees are horrendous. I ended up paying more for my bags back and forth than the cost of my ticket. Had I have known it would be so pricey I would have pay the few extra dollars to fly with a different airline. I will likely not be flying with Spirit again."

Pros: "Low fare."
Cons: "High bag fees"

Pros: "Nothing..."
Cons: "Cancelled flight in LaGuardia, they told me to take a shuttle to Newark for another flight, an hour shuttle ride, cancelled flight in Newark, had to get a motel, no reimbursement for anything, still waiting for a flight on day 2, this flight is delayed...still in New Jersey nowhere near Cartagena..."

Cons: "I like nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight was cancelled! Instead of a refund we got a 50$ voucher, what the he'll is that. Had to pull a bunch of strings to get the airline to book our other flight through 4 different layovers. Ended up in Cartagena 12 hours late."

Pros: "You get what you pay for"
Cons: "The $100 baggage fee"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and clean"
Cons: "Had great difficulty in printing my boarding pass was unable to upload the spirit app."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and crew was professional."
Cons: "We had thought this was a low cost fare but ended up having to pay an extra $100 because of baggage fees. They even charged for a carry on bag if it had wheels. This seems like a hidden charge and Kayak is not being transparent."

Pros: "Price was perfect for me who didn't need to pay for carry on or snacks"
Cons: "Seats didn't lean back:("

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super expensive, ridiculous charges, rude staff, and unbelievable turbulence on board. Flight was delayed and landing time kept changing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too expensive!! They charge you for all"

Cons: "Nothing nice to say"

Cons: "I booked with spirit for my girls trip this year... The flight from houston ti san diego delayed 6 times then cancelled. This happened on a tuesday and i was told the next flight was on saturday. I also had another flight booked that Thur.. My whole vacation ruined because of spirit... Do NOT FLY Spirit... Also i got notifications on Thursday that there was a delay from san diego to vegas... Horrible airline!!!! Never again"

Pros: "Crew was great and patient"
Cons: "Wish that flights to LA/OC on any airline would be a bit less. For all amenities though, you guys do pretty good"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly and helpful. Had no trouble checking in my son's tuba."
Cons: "Spirit tells you up front that the reason they have affordable flights is because they skimp on EVERYTHING extra, including/especially seat space. It was a very uncomfortable 3 how flight, but we arrived safely and without breaking the bank."

Cons: "That my flight got cancelled & I did not get informed until I got there & they wanted me to wait in an hour wrong like to get my refund"

Cons: "I finished the fly very deassy and with a headache because the plane was going up and down all the time. I don't think it was just a turbulence because the pilot didn't say anything and seatbelt sign wasn't on."

Cons: "This airline is completely unethical with the most unprofessional and extremely rude employees that I've experienced to date. DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE... I assure you, their rates lure you in and you will end up spending significantly more than other airlines in the end. I cannot believe there has not been a class action lawsuit against this fraudulent organization."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got cancelled. Missed an international vacation and friends wedding."

Cons: "We were delayed for at least two hours and had to beg gate staff to tell us what was going on and where we should (could) board. Unacceptable."
