Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It's nice to fly a real airline. Where a bag is included, overhead bins fit standard carry ons, the seats recline, if even just a short distance."
Cons: "That omelette at 3:30 in the morning was horrible. Even the sausage link tasted odd. Not bad if the only complaint is airline food though."

Pros: "The service was quite good. Nice food. I like that it is still included in the price of the ticket."
Cons: "It was a 6 hour flight and there was no personal entertainment system. That’s outdated compared to other airlines like Avianca. As mentioned by others the business class seats are outdated. No foot rest, no charging plug, no entertainment system."
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: "Everything went well, very nice and good."
Cons: "The seats could be a little uncomfortable when sleeping, and I'm vegan so eating anything was difficult."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"

Pros: "Copa got me a seat on a flight with another airline.."
Cons: "My flight was canelled."

Pros: "Everything! Omg and the food was so great! Awesome airline!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was variety for entertainment! There had great movies, new ones, not all airlines focus on that. Another thing was the food and drinks that the offered. They really kept passengers happy."
Pros: "When they booked me on another airline after making me wait 36 hours and finally admitting it was their mistake they inadvertently cancelled my reservation."
Cons: "They intolerant, unprofessional, they overbook flights and blame the passenger, they don't help you when this happens, they cancelled my booking and tried to blame me, they act as if they have a right to treat a customer like garbage. Don't EVER book a flight with this company. If you do you are taking a huge risk."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Pros: "Everyone was extremely kind and helpful!"
Pros: "On time..."
Pros: "FOOD & STAFF. Smooth landing."
Pros: "Service was good everything except the entertainment system"
Cons: "No entertaiment system"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "No coffee :("
Pros: "Checking , the agent was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The service on the plane, I ask for some coffe and they gave it to me when they wanted to not when I ask..."
Cons: "I was in business class. You basically had to beg for alcohol. I just wanted a glass of wine, and I had to wait over 1.5 hrs to receive it. This was annoying as this was a red-eye 7 hours flight . I wanted a glass of wine, and then to sleep. Very poor service for business class. Also, flying a 737 8 hours is not ideal. The need to upgrade their fleet."
Pros: "Free food, free drinks, free luggage!!!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Airplanes really old, should change like Avianca ones, with personal screens"
Pros: "People qhere relatively nice"
Cons: "I had a fragile checkin package that was packed professionally and it came in peaces. It is not the first time this happens. I suggest a little more care with passenger items"

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally kind And efficient The food was ok"
Cons: "Not that much"
Pros: "nice new appearing lane"
Cons: "Food was fair, but at least there was a meal."
Pros: "En líneas generales Copa es una línea buena no excelente, ofrece cierta calidad de servicio."
Cons: "Lo que No me conviene de viajar en Copa airlines, es el poco peso permitido en el equipaje. La situación en Venezuela actualmente nos ha llevado (lamentablemente) a traer vivieres y otra serie de productos por necesidad y tuve que pagar sobrepeso. En ese sentido me conviene viajar con una línea que permita mas peso por cada valija aún cuando sacrifique la calidad del servicio. El personal en este vuelo de Miami a Panamá fué poco atento. Solicité una cobija porque tenía frío y no había."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "The airline has an excellent boarding process and crew. Everything right on time. I arrived the check-in desk after boarding had commenced but the staff did everything to still get me on the flight including sending someone to retrieve me from the very long security queue. I did make the flight. Great great people."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "No access to lounge for business class..."
Pros: "Whole experience from San Jose through to Panama City was good. Although a short flight, the crew managed to serve a meal and drinks. As it was such a short flight, there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing at all!! Rubbish total rubbish"
Cons: "Food was absolutely abominable, service was slow, the cabin was way too hot and the lounge and connection in Panama was a dissapointment"
Pros: "flight left on time, transfer time in panama was short. panama is a good place to switch planes cause tjey dont make you go through security check again"
Cons: "they didnt have screens on seats"
Pros: "The food was better as was the crew. This flight had very nice attendants compared to the flight to Santiago."
Cons: "The fact that the Stewards allowed 5 children to run up and down the isle of the plane for a good 2 hrs, even after we complained."
Pros: "Two checked bags and one carry-on allowed, food and beverage included, flights on time, crew was excellent, several departure/arrival times for my destination each day. Entertainment on this leg was great."
Cons: "Boarding was good (not excellent) in that I found it a bit confusing. Not always clear when my group is boarding nor have I any idea how I seem to always be in Group 3."
Pros: "lost luggage"
Pros: "The price but it wasn't worth it."
Cons: "The cramped seating."
Pros: "Easy. Will fly spirit again."
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Pros: "I can not honestly think of anything good to say"
Cons: "The seating, made me fill like a can of sardines."
Pros: "it was sufficient"
Cons: "charged for bag at check in."
Pros: "Got in early despite a few minute delay boarding."
Pros: "There is nothing to note that I liked about this airline."
Cons: "If you any sense, you'll never fly on this airline. I have had 4 or 4 flights end up being the worst flights ever. It is worth the extra money to fly on another airline."
Cons: "Comfort packed like sardines"
Cons: "We didn't take off on time. this is so common with spirit airlines"
Pros: "The on board service was statisfactory and curious."
Cons: "For me the seats were too small. I am 6ft3in 200 slim pounds. If i could of gotten an isle seat or emberency door and picked my seat ahead of time even paid more for it would of helped. Getting to check in early does not get you a spicific seat. A child can be put in an isle seat whereas an adult can be put at the window seat slighty more cramped."
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I booked one ticket from Denver to Baltimore, but found out I would be charged twice ($80 in total) for checking one bag. While i did have a layover in Chicago and this indeed was only one trip, Spirit denied this and said that since I had a layover, they were two separate tickets. This is unacceptable. My ticket said Chicago was a layover. It is absurd to be charged twice for baggage on one single trip. Last time I fly Spirit!!!"
Pros: "I read so many reviews that- in other words- said the Spirit experience was awful that i went to the airport prepared for the worst. Turns out I was wrong. Friendly staff, quick line to drop off baggage, quick boarding process and the clerk at the gate changed our seats so we could be together and gave us the 3rd row. Nothinng bad to say about this airline."
Pros: "The flight itself was on time."
Cons: "The seats were small and not comfortable. I understand selling food but would have appreciated a free choice of water, coffee, tea or juice. I won't be flying with Spirit airlines again. Their low prices are offset by excessive tricks to earn more through baggage charges, seat selection, etc. I was pleased however not to be charged for looking out the window."
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added."
Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The fees"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded fairly quickly and was smooth. The staff was fine and friendly."
Cons: "The plane(at least my seat) was dirty. There were what seemed to be good smears on the window and something smeared inside of the pocket under the tray table."
Cons: "No reclining seats. Have to buy water. Couldn't sleep on the red eye which led to the rest of vacation being difficult."
Cons: "I was told that Spirit is known for late arrivals and departures...found that to be true. Thankfully the trip was only 90+ minutes. Could not have stood the uncomfortable seats any longer. The only plus was the friendly attendants."
Pros: "The crew was nice when they told me I was screwed. I was happy to share my frustration with my thousand-plus Facebook friends and to hear other people's stories of getting screwed by Spirit."
Cons: "Didn't find out flight was cancelled until I was at the airport. They didn't have an available flight to LAX until Saturday - TWO DAYS LATER. Completely bush league. NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The planes are new so there's that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours due to leaky breaks and they didn't have the air on so we all sweat to death until someone decided to flip the ac switch 2 hours in. The tickets are so cheap cause you have to pay for eeeeeeeeeeeverything! You have to pay for a carry-on, a drink, to have the service desk check you in, etc. I'm surprised they don't have a coin-lock on the bathrooms or individual oxygen masks that they charge you for."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, we arrived early, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Non-reclining seats."
Pros: "Only flight available"
Cons: "Staff was rude, borderlining on hostile. I was treated like I was an inconviencne to the staff for purchasing a ticket. Seats were shot and not comfortable and gave everyone a very hard flight. Try training your staff."
Cons: "From website to check in the worst I've seen in the business in decades. The flight was fine. The marketing tone of light-hearted humor overlaid on bad everything leaves bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "The steward's patter at the beginning of the flight was exceptionally well delivered."
Cons: "Boarding, food? that's funny!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for a while because of weather, it was a nice flight."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "The flight was delayed both ways 3 hours. On a 3 day get away we spent 2 of them sitting in the airport. Will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "We had an hour and a half delay! They made us sit in the airplane due to some paper work and could not fuel the plane until everything was done. The excuse they used was that the paper work was "new" and that is why there was delays. The inside of the plane began to get hot and a passenger was so red to her face she was about to pass out. In addition there was no running water in the restrooms."
Pros: "This is the first spirit airlines flight in years that was not only on time but early. Everyone was kind and professional. This was a real change from our previous spirit experiences."
Cons: "$104.00 for two small bags checked that could have fit in overhead bin. Never fly you again. You suck."
Cons: "Miserable airline. Worst of all made people wait an hour before baggage started coming out."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I hated everything worst experience ever. Will never fly spirit again. It was my first and last time."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. They boarded everyone rather quickly. Everyone was friendly."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. You have to pay for your seat. You have to pay for snacks and drinks. They did overbook the return flight. You do have to pay for luggage, whether checked or carry-on. You don't have to pay for personal items.The seats are really cramped together."
Cons: "Charged me 75$ to check a bag Never buying from here again"
Pros: "It was cheaply priced. Crew members were pleasant."
Cons: "Being delayed with poor excuses having to do with paperwork."
Cons: "From the lack of representatives and overall procedure to board the plane, I could not be more disappointed and annoyed. The flight attendants talk too much on the over head speaker, the seats too tight (even for me at 5'3-120lbs), the fees are outrageous. It's worth to buy at a more reputable airline. I arrive 13 minutes before my flight takes off and the door closes 15 minutes, so be prepared. Especially since it's the representatives and broken kiosk that make you run late. Now, since there is one Spirit plane I have to wait an additional 24 hours to head back to Chicago. I've now been here 48 hours past my stay. Save yourself the headache. Don't do it. I don't foresee this company staying in business very long. It's my own fault. I didn't listen to my friends. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "the online web page was decent."
Cons: "For an active military member of the US forces, I had to pay for a checked baggage fee. I don't pay for a fee on other carriers. I should have flown on United, since the price was the same or less due to zero fees for baggage. And the aircraft seeting overall was not comfortable and up to date. Seemed rather old and worn."
Cons: "Horrible experience super uncomfortable never agin. I rather pay more, I would not recommend spirit to any one not even my worse enemy."
Pros: "No room, great ticket prices but get you with luggage. I feel like this is a scam to get people to fly. Overall....honestly I wouldn't fly Spirit again. Sorry! P. S. And..... You have to pay for your own snacks through Spirit unless you bring your own, so anyone that's going to fly Spirit think twice about it."
Pros: "Expectations were low, which is why the exceeded them. It's still spirit, so there is still no food served and it costs extra to bring a carry on, etc. But it got me from Denver to Dallas and that's all I needed."
Pros: "It was a smoothe flight."
Cons: "Double charged me for baggage and there is no way to talk to a live human on the phone. Website has no 'contact us'. Charging for everything is just wrong. Seats are uncomfortable, seats too close to each other. Will never fly spirit again. Got the same reaction from those around me. Flight from Phoenix to Denver was delayed 40 minutes because someone checked their bag but did not get on the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendent Quinten was so friendly and fun!"
Cons: "Staff mumbled when announsing flight cacelation, so every one stood in line to ask what the announce ment was.2hrs to reissue tickets. Attempting to move 100 person to hotel on 10 passenger shuttle buses with 30 min between shuttle. Unclear food voucher so that merchant did not accept , dinner was very in filling."
Pros: "Flight was on time, Crew was professional and nice, plane was clean."
Cons: "You have to pay for all food and drinks, no entertainment and the seat do not recline."
Cons: "small seats, no leg room, false advertising - it's clearly NOT cheaper than buying a regular priced ticket once you add in all the "a la carte" items. It's a bit of a scam."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all nice and very funny, making light of the terrible circumstances and the making up for the terrible service from the Airline in general."
Cons: "The airline employee standing at the gate desk told passengers that we had to "herd onto the flight quickly", or else our flight would not take off. The flight crew was overworked and on overtime and was threatening to strike. Clearly, Spirit Airlines is not taking proper care of their employees and this made for a terrible journey for all of the passengers as well. This was my absolute worst experience on a flight in my entire life."
