Pros: "The crew, the plane, the flight, the food was all very, very good"
Cons: "We initially picked exit seats but they ended up unasigning my son's seat because he is 2 years old, both times they gave us the worst possible seats in the plane. When initially assigned my son, it said: "No one under 2 is allowed to seat in emergency seats" a bit misleading and inconvenient. Other than this we had a great experience."
Cons: "I don’t even know how and where to start.. Avianca has given me issues in the past and I have decided a few more times to give them a chance. Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Cons: "Avianca charged my account twice for the cost of the ticket, now the bank says I have to talk to Avianca and Avianca says I have to talk to the bank.

Cons: "Cancelaron mi vuelo de escala en bogota y me hicierln esperar 12 horas por eso no pude llegar a tiempo a mi compromiso y lo cambie para la fecha antes de irme, como mi compromiso era importante tome el riesgo pero tuve otro retrazo y no pude tomar el vuelo de vuelta, llege al aeropuerto y me dijeron que no podian hacer nada me hicieron pagar 300 dolares mas.

They didn't let me know that any seat of the row i was in didn't pull back, they also wake me up to open the window.... Overall the worst experience with a mayor airline... Im worried i have to go back home with them."
I liked the attention at the counter and on board. Everything happened in an orderly manner. I flew with COPA in May. From Panama I flew on Thursday. I returned from Miami on a Sunday. The flight from Panama to Miami then was wonderful, but returning from Miami at the counter and boarding was a complete disaster. The operator at the counter was rude and apathetic. Because of the disorder to board we lost our spot to take off and we’re grounded for an hour. This time both ways were outstanding! I hope they continue to improve and show the same good service on weekends than the one during week days! Thank you!

Cons: "Frist :Late for more than 6 hours in Miami. Second: obviously I lost my connection to Bog-Col , they give me a hotel room whithout A/C and smell like mold for that reason. Third: there is no breakfast in the hotel. Thanks for asking Kayak Bye"
Pros: "The food they serve besides being a very small portion, is disgusting."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "So, because I was 3 mins late to the gate, they made me spend another $320 for a fligh next day. I'm still in Panama city. Its unbelievable how the plane is still there, with the corridor that takes the passengers to the plane still attached to it, and they can look me straight in he face and tell me they cant reopen the door. While I'm stressfully paying an extra $320 and knowing I'm going to lose 1 whole day of my vacation in Rio because of one little detail that could be solved by opening the door and letting me in, I see the plane there sitting in the same spot for another 15-20 mins without moving.

Cons: "I chose the seats 8 months before this flight and I supposed to be assigned 8F and 8E. However, I don"t know why the airline assigned me the last seats in the airplane in this time. That day the aircraft experienced turbulence and I felt bad at the back. I did not like they decided to change my seats without asking me."
Pros: "As a non-Spanish speaker we felt well cared for."
Pros: "I was treated very well, and respectful in my needs. It was simple but nice."

Cons: "Food was not good and since the plane was old, entertainment was poor"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but...."

Nothing. I got stolen. More than 10 expensive headbands from my daughter’s volleyball practice were stolen. A 12 hour travel turned to more than 30 hours and when I get to my destination our things are missing. I do not recommend LATAM to anybody else
i reserve the right of opinion
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and the food was the best I've had on a plane trip."
Cons: "Latam could be better if permit that customer can change the sit at check in."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and we the customers were very happy to have this team"
Cons: "None it was a great flight"
Pros: "Crew had christmas ware on."
Cons: "Food did not taste good. Better wine."
Pros: "Foot rest in coach"
Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals"
Cons: "Not to overbook the flight"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice."
Cons: "It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere."
Cons: "No food just a cookie"
Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Good service and food though the items on the food tray were just the meal and a dessert snack. Other airlines have food trays with salad, fruit, the entree and a snack dessert. But as long as we get there safe and sound I am ok."
Cons: "Boarding process in Miami was chaotic. Started late as the crew reported late to the flight. Nobody knew what's going on until the gate agents made an announcement that the crew was reporting late. We departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "Entertainment and extra seats everywhere"
Pros: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Cons: "I had to pay for everything. only the water was for free. No, of course I had to pay for that on the ticket plane."
Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight, made no effort to get me home and didn’t reimburse me for my hotel when I had to stay in Iquitos."
Pros: "it was a very nice and pleasant trip!"
Pros: "entertainment and flight attendant"
Pros: "The crew welcomed us on board the night of December 31st. They celebrated New Year with us and created a comfortable and celebrative atmosphere. Amazing service!"
Pros: "the flight crew was so nice, and so collaborative. Im vegan and the ooption they had was vegetarian, but they figure out and got salad and fruit for me."
Cons: "my luggage arrived broken. they break the zip in order to open the luggage, (for general checking Iguess) but the zip should never have been broken"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment. Way better than any US airline."
Cons: "Cabin lights on for first 2 hours of an overnight (red eye) flight. No meal served as indicated on ticket, just M&Ms. Very cold cabin."
Pros: "I slept most of the flight."
Pros: "Food is good. Customer service is great."
Cons: "They didnt put movies."
Pros: "It was a new plane, the pilot waited for our bags to be put into the plane. Because we made it to the plane after they had loaded everyone. This was due to our late arrival From our Delayed connection from Washington."
Cons: "At our arrival a couple had taken our seats. The flight attendant told us to get on any other seat available. We had our family (the three of us ) spread out in the plane. I had to ask another attendant to please ask for our seats back. Finally after a while we got them back but it wasn't a Pleasant experience. They didn't have enough headphones to give everyone. My son and I had to share one headphone. The food was really bad for an international flight, Not even the wine was given without paying for it"
Pros: "Had pillows and blankets"
Cons: "TV monitor did not work They asked if I would like something to drink I asked for a Coke and they said they didn't have any on the bevrage truck twenty minutes later I received the coke"
Cons: "Comida, al llegar a mi ya no habían opciones."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Cons: "They auto rescheduled my flight to Washington since we arrived in Miami late. They failed to emphasis that the flight that left 90 minutes later was going to a different Washington airport."
Pros: "Captain always give us information during the flight because weather condtions were rude"
Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido. Los que están en tránsito deberían permitirles bajar del avión antes para poder llegar en hora al otro vuelo. Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"
Cons: "Waiting in long lines in Miami to check in, over an hour. And then they let other passengers who came late for their flight go in front of me. At that point I thought that would be the first and last time I travel Latam."
Cons: "1 hour delay....., without explanations-"
Pros: "The flight was fine, as far as being on time, more or less comfortable, etc."
Cons: "You have to pay for food. Being expensive, you go hungry. They gave free soda."
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Cons: "Lost baggage. !!!!"
Cons: "I have a very bad experience. The first flight was delayed, so many people including me missed the connecting flight. They kept us till 2AM at the airport and made us take out all our luggage before taking us to a hotel. Then, there was a Flight leaving the same day at noon, but instead of acommodating us there, they made us wait till 11:59 PM for the next flight. They told us that it was a direct flight as it was initially scheduled from Lima to La Paz, but that was not true as we had to stop in Santa Cruz first. To sum up, there was a 28-hour delay in total. I was supposed to get to La Paz on Jan. 28 and ended up arriving on the 29. No explanations were given, but it is clear that they oversold as all flights were full. Avoid this airline if you can."
Pros: "Having a vegetarian option"
Cons: "No salad?! Fruit or vegetable! Something was missing."
They said that i never bought the flight and cancelled my ticket. I had to pay 200,000 pesos for taxi and book a hotel because there were no other flights that night. I will never use expedia for flight booking again.
The flight was delayed for starters. But it’s such a short flight so everything was okay for the price. Seats don’t recline and no refreshments were offered but once again, the flight was quick and smooth.
Me cobraron demasiado por una maleta de mano
I could'nt make checkin by internet im from another country the aplication did not work i told them and they charge me becuase of that, i had seat reserve and still they charge me.
Very good airlines viva love it 💕
The flights on time, they call in order of rows and more best they call by rows starting from front to end when arrivals and that avoid the passenger be together snd come out in order.
We missed our flight because no one spoke english and we had issues with documents and by the time we fix it was too late to make our flight and then we had to pay $600 to book with a different airline
Nada funciona en el internet para cobrater 70 dolares x equipaje
They broke my siutcase and I wanna my money back a new siutcase
Flight from Cartagena - Bogota - Lima. When I arrived at the airline counter in Cartagena to fly to Bogota the reps requested a PCR test result from me although for travel to Peru within 24 hours, only an antigen test is required, not a PCR test. I had a negative Covid antigen test result from the airport clinic just before checking in for the flight. Subesequent to that, I requested that that the airline at least honor the flight from Cartagena to Bogota thinking that when I arrived in Bogota, as it is a more international airport, I would be able to convince a manager there that the current travel regulations to Peru only require a Covid antigen test within 24 hours of travel to Peru. The airline reps and manager refused to even honor my flight ticket from Cartagena to Bogota athough no Covid test at all is required for travel within Colombia. The female attendants scoffed at me. Furthermore, the male staff person got incredibly aggressive with me in front of everyone in the airport to the point where I had to step back thinking he was going to get physical with me. In all of my travel to 54 countries and 51 years of travel, I have never been treated this poorly by an airline. I had to go to the counter of another airline where I was able to purchase another ticket to Bogota and was able to fly out that hour by paying for another ticket. Fortunately, my bank has granted me a chargeback although I was forced to pay more for a ticket purchased at the counter of another airline. I am SURPRISED this Viva Airlines is even in business!
Worst experience with an airline in 51 years and 54 countries of international travel. Reserved a flight from Cartagena - Bogota - Lima.

I guess my comment is on the extras and as they charge for it, you know is a low cost service, but the extras or unknown could be charged at a much normal rate.

Cons: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."
Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."
Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"
Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."
Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."
Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."
Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."
Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"
Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."
Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."
Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."
Pros: "Fast, good service."
Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."
Cons: "Hire people who aren’t condescending and stop nickel and diming people."
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "Everything is ok"
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Pros: "Best part of this flight was. finally getting off, 32 hours after we were scheduled."
Cons: "This was hands down the worst managed flight ever! They delayed the plane something like 8 times. Always just 30 or 45 minutes so you couldn't leave and go do something. Finally we boarded 6 hours late. 55 minutes into the turned us around and sent us back to FL. So basically, everything."
Pros: "Nothing at all. I will NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN!!!"
Cons: "On international arrival at FLL, I found that, because Spirit's website had crashed repeatedly, preventing me from checking in online, Spirit proposed to charge MORE THAN THE COST OF RENTING A MID-SIZE CAR THAT WOULD REACH MY (nr. SRQ) DESTINATION SOONER, just for MY CARRY ON!!! Ticket is in trash."
Cons: "Why a passenger get a ticket for $189 paying $50 for lagage need 2 or $3 to get a bottle of water? I didn't appreciate that from you guys we need to work on that. We don't ask for snacks. After that everything was fine. Good job to the team"
Cons: "We arrived and would have made our connection and we had to sit on the tarmac for a long time. You ruined our anniversary. We will never fly Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Seats were better"
Cons: "Bring back the back seat bags."
Cons: "Seating was wrong , they gave me a different customer's ticket and had me standing waiting for my seat . Attendant left empty bottle in seating area and walked away . Staff was loud and unproffesional."
Cons: "Flight scheduled to leave at 8:25 AM. Did not leave until 1:45 PM. Was delayed four times because of a Crew issue on Easter Sunday. Missed our entire Easter celebration because spirit was unable to man a plane Will never fly this airline again. Customer service was rude on top of it. They need to be prepared for crew to call out on a holiday. 5 1/2 hour delay with no weather emergency is unacceptable. A 50 dollar voucher does not make up for ruining a family hokiday"
Cons: "we were given multiple notices, late---on time---late---finally when told the flight was on time, we went to the airport, only to wait 5 hours. spirit was not honest with us, and they did not compensate us t all, not even with a soft drink once on board"
Pros: "The two flight attendants were pleasant. At least there was that after this nightmare."
Cons: "Spirit was so incredibly disorganized that we almost missed our flight. The line for bag drop was the same to talk to an agent. It was out the door and down the street! No one could give us any information - they just said to join the back of the line. This is a pitiful excuse for an airline with disorganized lines and no communication. Plus the desk person was so Rude and charged an arm and a leg for us going over the weight restriction. She was hateful, and wouldn’t even cut us the slightest break after we waited 2 hours. Never flying this horrible airine again. You end up being more expensive than the more expensive airlines! What a waste."
Pros: "Plane was clean, stewards were pleasant and efficient, flight was on time!"
Cons: "The cost of carry-on bags is completely absurd. It will make me think twice about booking a low-cost airline again. <$25 is reasonable and in line with domestic carry on baggage costs."
Cons: "No hospitality, zero customer service. It felt as if they just wanted to take my money and not let me fly with them. I missed my flight due to a lack of communication from Spirit Staff."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Exit row worth the money Fast boarding"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats No beverages or entertainment"
Cons: "I have been taking this flight every week for the past month. Have taken off late and have spent a median of 20 to 30 min stuck, at a full stop, on the runway before deplaning EVERY SINGLE TIME. Unbelievable."
Cons: "Luggage charged and last minute flight cancellation resulting in bus transportation... Staff was rude and very careless"
Pros: "The staff on both flights were beyond courteous and professional they were easy to speak with. I didn't even know when touched down in Orlando, smooth landing. Fll was good too."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and was a tad bit cold. But nonetheless lovely"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew sense of being made welcome"
Cons: "Complimentary beverage"
Pros: "Seating is uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I was uncomfortable the whole ride . Paid 250 for bags because they were ok to come yet charged me to bring them back . So I paid 600 in bags and seats she I should or could have paid for comfortable seating with another airline"
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
Cons: "Was told the only flight I would be guaranteed a seat on to Chicago was not until 36 hours later- So I bought a new ticket on a different airline to go home."
Cons: "This airline company was totally misleading about everything. My luggage was okay on one flight but return flight was not okay, had to pay for luggage both ways. Was told to check in on line and the website wouldn't let you plus then had to stand in line for 45 min to check in only 2 clerks working with 109 plus people in line. I will not fly spirit again. The seats where so small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "This was my first time with Spirit and I am very pleased with my flights. On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "Smooth flight, amusing crew, gave away a voucher to a random person on board, tons of leg room on emergency exit row, made up time after weather delay on connecting flight"
Cons: "Tiny seats, expensive luggage fees"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Pretty much the whole flight"
Cons: "You pay for everything extra so a what seems like a cheap flight on Kayak becomes an expensive one. No wi-fi so you can't do any work. No TV so better bring entertainment. Their kiosks did not work. By fat the worst airline ai have travelled."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and nice. Departure on time and arrival ahead of time, that's always nice."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra charges but now that I know how the system works maybe the next time it will be less. This is a no bells and whistles airline. Just gets you from one destination to another. That's fine by me."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled but the notice wasn't sent until 2 hours later (1 hour before the flight). We had already driven 1.5 hours to Latrobe only to find out there it was cancelled. Not sure why I signed up for text mesage updates of mine ever came..."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes on the way to our destination and over an hour on the way back. Seats did not recline at all and are small. I waited for finding the least expensive flight and found that every bag whether carry on or checked bag has a cost. It costs to print out your boarding pass from the airport. Once your boarding pass is purchased you then have to pay for a seat on the flight. If you want a snack there is a fee attached. So much for a less expensive flight. It would have cost less to go through an airline that combines everything and they would have had some entertainment for a 3 hour and 40 minute flight."
Cons: "Beware! This airline charges $55 for a CARRY-ON, each way. That essentially means that the ticket price is $110 more expensive than what is cited at purchase. Also, the check-in process was terrible."
Cons: "Flight crew in Atlanta didn't inform us that we could not go to Panama on a one-way ticket and we didn't find out that we couldn't until we got to fort lauderdale. The first flight to Panama was CANCELED....then, when we went back the next day to check in and get our boarding passes, we were told we could not go to Panama unless we paid for a return flight. This was our first time flying international, so we were unaware of that."
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, boarding was slow, and once we were all boarded the plane we sat there for 30 mins - all with zero announcements or communications as to what was going on. I appreciate when airlines update passengers often about whats going on."
Cons: "extra charge on carry on luggage and they charge for a snack and a drink. i will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Seats didn't recline and we didn't want to be charged for carry on"
Pros: "Flight was very crowded, gate changed twice for departure, flight delayed 15 minutes, trash was in seat area, and I ended up getting a bad chest infection from flying with spirit."
Pros: "I knew what to expect as far as luggage pricing and snacks. I boarded close to last and there was enough room for my personal item in the overhead compartment. I spoke to the flight attendant about moving to another seat if it wasn't occupied. She was pleasant and arranged for me to move before take off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was my seat didn't recline. Also, a group of about 20 spent the better part in the aisles moving from seat to seat, row to row. The flight attendant said something to them but they never really dispersed. The flight attendant then sat in her seat and read a book while the passengers continued to congregate in the exit row."
Cons: "We did not like the fact that Spirit charges so much to check-in bags and also that our HAND BAG was considered to be a carry on. We couldn't even get a FREE cup of water unless you had take medication. I will never fly SPIRIT AIRLINES again."
Cons: "I cannot believe Spirit charges $50.00 to check a carry on in addition to a checked bag. any other airline I would never pay for a carry on. I understand the airfare rates are low but they make it up in luggage fees. My checked in bag was overweight and I was charged another $55.00 on top of the $50.00 fee. I will never fly with Spirit because of this."
Cons: "Needs adjustable seats, small snack with a drink for couple of dollars more"
Cons: "The fact our flight was cancelled with no reason, none of the airline staff had any idea what to do with the passengers who needed new flights, we were sent to 3 different people before someone actually knew their job. Then we were given a voucher not for our bag to check which is an exorbitant hidden fee, but for us to book another flight on Spirit like that would EVER happen. The whole process was a joke and extremely time consuming."
Cons: "The employees were terrible, inflexible, uncouteous, and fake! I'm both Baltimore and Fort Lauderdale! It was my wife and mine birthday and it was the worst flight experience of my life. We will never fly with Spirit again. Maybe you guys want youre employees to have these characteristics, but if you dont, you should really review the employees and practices of your company. We were charged an additional 100 for a bag...on my birthday!!! Thx guys for being so bad that we can actuallybappreciate good airlines."
Cons: "This airline is absolute garbage."
Cons: "I tried to check in online and the first thing I had to do was pay for my carry-on. As soon as I did I had a response that I needed further assistance from a representative and that I had to contact them. When I did, the woman told me that everything was fine. I re-check and told her the message was still showing up. She told me to try on my computer instead because the message didn't appear for her. Oh and before I told someone my problem I was transferred to the operator a couple of times. Finally I pulled out my computer an as soon as I saw the message called back extremely upset and told her that she needed to check with my confirmation number and to please not transfer me to the operator. She confirmed the problem was an error in the billing address. Worst experience for such a small problem. Crew wasn't too happy on the flight, chairs don't recline, no entertainment or drinks. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4.5 hours due to all sorts of reasons. It was an absolute joke. I would never recommend Spirit to anyone and will certainly go out of my way to dissway people from using this airlines."
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Spirit was calling for last passengers to board the flight we had departed 45 minutes prior but our luggage hadn't shown up. Why did it take so long between deplaning and getting our luggage?"
Cons: "Our plane was downgraded. Window seat and had to find another flight to get it back. Our bags and the make o our plane was downgraded. Window seat and had to find another flight to get it back. Our bags we're loaded on the plane so the next day we had to drive to Atlantic City to get our bags."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 6 hours. They didn't even try to voucher food or give any free snacks or drinks on the plane. I do not think that was the right thing to do."
Pros: "When the flight was over"
Cons: "The seats suck. They'll charge you for everything and their allowed carry-on bags are hilariously small. It was my first Spirit flight. And my last."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"
