Somewhere between Atlanta and Asuncion they lost my suitcase with all my photographic equipment.
Pros: "good crew, food was okay."
Cons: "really uncomfortable seats, too small for an international flight. couldn't lean back because the guy behind me was tall, so my back was hurting the entire time."
Pros: "The entertainment options. Liked the sandwich as well"
Cons: "The seats could be a bit more comfortable, and adding veggies to their sandwiches"
Cons: "The crew nerds ti ve More people person, their Attitude toward the Passangers was rude in More than one time"
Pros: "The hub at panama and the fast flight connection"
Cons: "The plane seat is not confortable for long flights. No cushion enough, able to feel the seat metal structure."
Pros: "Amazin !! Thank you"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the space very poorly"
Cons: "Could be better with more space and bigger seats"
Cons: "No air in plane while boarding so temperatures we're easily over 100 degrees in the cabin"
Cons: "Delayed flight for around 25 to 30 minutes"
Pros: "Under normal conditions, an average Copa flight is better than most other airlines. And even though I can't point at any one particular thing that I liked best, I can certainly say that this was a well-above-average flight."
Cons: "Food is not what it used to be."
Pros: "Very friendly service and very helpful even though there is a language difference, they were great in making me feel comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time and everything was smooth"
Cons: "Plane was a bit too small coming from tampa to panama"
Cons: "I was not able to board my connecting flight from Panama City Panama to Cali Colombia and was told there were no more available flights until the next day. I was very dissatisfied and upset and cant believe they can just bump someone out of a plane that has already paid for the flight. This is the worst experience I have had with an airline in my almost 40 years! I would like to see how we can get a credit or refund for flight!"
Pros: "Food was particularly good in business class."
Cons: "Very minor point on not having an entertainment system, but the flight was short at just over 1hr. It was hard to understand some announcements over the speakers because of the sound system plus the fast talking with heavy accents"
Pros: "Friendly staff always had a smile on. Good food and amazing service."
Cons: "We had to cancel our trip because I was hospitalized with Influenza B and pneumonia. We had purchased flight insurance from Allianz. Copa charged us $150 per ticket cancellation fee and remainder was provided as a credit on Copa Airlines. Copa will not refund the ticket cost. This was a special once-in-a-lifetime trip with friends. Not likely that we will make another attempt to fly to Quito or anywhere else Copa flies, so we have a 100% loss."
Pros: "But... when I purchased a tkt online. For some reason the name on last ticket I purchased was on the next COPA ticket. A 300.00 purchase. Because COPA does not change ticket holders names it was a total loss. I bought the ticket for a student in Cali to come and meet me in Panama City I couldn't afford to buy a second ticket so Victor stayed home. Every other Airline charges a minimal fee to make changes on a ticket so now there is a credit at Copa Airlines for a person that will never ever use it.... such a waste of time and money. Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Pros: "Staff was very polite and courteous. Plane was comfortable."
Pros: "The crew attention"
Cons: "The very ugliest seats. The last ones don't go back to sleep."
Cons: "The food was not good and cold. there weren’t options on entertainment"
Cons: "The pilot did a very odd and scary turn to the plane. He then raised the plane so rapidly that nobody knew what was going on. Not a word from the pilot or the crew of what had happened!!!! Extremely dissapointed!!!!"
Pros: "nice crew tribulation."
Cons: "there were no food options, only chicken. even though it was a shot fly, we didn't have a screen for music or other entertainment."
Cons: "Has to stay over Night in Panamá city"
Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding process. Great time for connection."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "The business class was empty and Copa did not offer an upgrade."
Pros: "flight punctuality, food."
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "I was traveling with my 2 kids. 10 and 7 years old. On the flight from Lima to Panama, we were assigned different seats but thankfully the airline was able to accommodate us and sit us together."
Cons: "The food was ok, but not great."
Cons: "Very limited Business Class menu. No entertainment system."
Pros: "I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket from Costa Rica to Panama in order to comply with laws stating non-resident aliens must leave Costa Rica every 90 days for a period of at least three days. When it came time to return to Costa Rica, I understood that I had not purchased ANOTHER ticket to "prove" my intent to leave Costa Rica again three months in the future. I told the ticket agent I wishes to purchase a "fully refundable" ticket for a future flight, but she was (or professed to be) unable to assure me the ticket she was selling me was refundable. Upon return to Costa Rica, as before, immigration did not ask to see any such proof nor did they even ask my intentions. Isn't this called fraud? I did not need the ticket and, of course, in contacting Copa Airlines, I would have to return to Panama in order to even get a partial refund, which they won't guarantee. Not doing this again."
Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "The first crew was a little bit rough with customers. The service was good but it will be better if they were a little more friendly."
Cons: "Do to Irma in Florida I had to evacuate 2 days before my flight. I call to re schedule my flight from Tampa and they were not flexible at all charging me an ridiculous fee!!!!"
Cons: "Frecuentes retrasos"
Pros: "Got upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Started bad with copa giving it to Avianca, and their flight dis not go out, deleyes etc."
Pros: "It was much easier than I thought switching from one airline to another. Everyone coordinate together very well and it went very smoothly."
Pros: "Breakfast was actually good for airline food. Boarding was way late. The security in panama made everyone throw out water so I wasted $4. They also were not thorough at all and abandoned the metal detector at one point."
Pros: "Enough space to stretch my legs. Crew was respectful"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing everything was good"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was fantastic"
Cons: "The boarding was a nightmare no gate printed on boarding pass and a gate attendant told us the wrong gate and we almost missed our flight"
Pros: "attendants were very friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Business class seats were really economy seats in a closed section (this is the norm on flights operated by Copa Columbia)."
Pros: "Friendly service leg room"
Pros: "It was my first time with COPA. I went to Buenos Aires with them (Montréal»Panama City and Panama City»BA). Aircrafts were much nicer and newer for the Panama»BA portion. The boarding was on-time and the staff was very nice. Considering the price I paid, the food was totally acceptable. Also, they automatically made my check-in for me and my son the day before our departure (returning back to Montréal) which was a pleasant surprise! I do recommend COPA for a good price/service ratio."
Cons: "The aircraft still had TVs popping out from the celling with 1 movie for the whole craft. I found that a bit archaic..."
Pros: "The crew were very good and friendly."
Cons: "The extreme and continous turbulence during all the flight time. I know it´s about the atmospheric conditions but it was so long..."
Pros: "Everything is awesome!"
Pros: "They have tv screens and like a mini Netflix with a decent variety of movies"
Pros: "The breakfast was super on point. It was the very first time I had hot pancakes on a plane."
Pros: "Movie selection and comfort of seats"
Cons: "They somehow “lost” luggage for half the hee passengers, and we had to wait for 2 hours by the carousel for them to “find” it. Totally unacceptable."
Cons: "Didn't get snack. WiFi entertainment wasn't working."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "Staff friendliness. Not forever late. Not losing kids stroller"
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "The greatest part of the trip for me was the smooth landing."
Cons: "I wanted a voucher ride but they only needed a few volunteers."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"
Cons: "At 12:40 p.m. we boarded American Airlines flight 1350 in ATL, just to SIT on plane for 1 1/2 hours (half the time with NO AIR). Computer problems. Had to get off plane, then had to wait in 3 lines. Agents were so UNPROFESSIONAL! Kept saying flight would go... DID NOT go until another plane came in at 9:00 PM! We, needless to say missed our connecting flight to SYDNEY and had to wait til next day and fly to SAN FRANCISCO, then to MELBOURNE, then on to Christchurch. We MISSED out on TWO DAYS of our short trip! which included missed reservations!!"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Very long time since I have being on s flight with tv in the aisle , and not on headrest .. this is s international flight ."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, and landing was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "I was not expecting the ample leg room and arm space. I was actually comfortable. It made such a huge difference in my day. The crew members were great and it was a pretty chill experience, which is not how I can describe any other flight in recent memory."
Cons: "The entertainment was just snippets from NBC shows that I’m not interested in. It was the same presentation on both legs of my trip, so even if I had been interested initially, I would have gotten bored the second time around."
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."
Pros: "Thanks everything was on time. Very nice cre"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
Pros: "VEry good Cabin crew and the plane was reasonable new"
Pros: "Clean plane a little more room in economy seats. Crew helped people find window and aisle seats if they were in middle."
Cons: "No in seat entertainment. Just drop down lCD panels for shows."
Pros: "Wasn't completely full."
Pros: "Agents were very helpful"
Pros: "Quickness of flight once up in the air"
Cons: "Getting stuck at gate waiting for air traffic control to find/make the flight a new flight plan"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "One checked bag was delayed in arrival"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "For the most part the trip was wonderful."
Cons: "I was unhappy because every leg of my journey I was being charged for my baggage. I thought this was unfair. Those working with customer service was not helpful either. They were frustrated and thus frustrated me. In addition my flight was late leaving the airport and the captain nor the stewardesses gave an explanation. This was unacceptable. We were late over hour."
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Could have picked something better to show."
Pros: "The ladies at the gate stayed over time to help reroute all the passengers."
Cons: "Plane delayed 5.5 hrs. Maintenance. New crew. Vomit on floor. Bathrooms broken. All before we board. Then @ gate for 1hr. Cancelled. 1 hr in line waiting to rebook. No shuttle to hotel. 3 hrs sleep. Front door broken at hotel."
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
Pros: "One of my flight was cancelled I have to repay for a ticket which did not make sense"
Cons: "Why I have to pay for another ticket for my son when did it and then"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Pros: "Pilot announced a change in time."
Cons: "Paying for my plane ticket broke college kid..."
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was antiquated and the seat space and leg room were minimal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and helpful"
Cons: "First of all flight was delayed an hour and a half.. Then I went to get something to eat to kill time just to find out they switched the gate causing me to have to run all the way to the new gate then they close the door as I was walking up and told me I missed my flight even though the plane was still there for another 15 minutes.. so I had to fly standby on the next flight which was another hour and a half later.. I arrived at the airport at 12:30 and didn't end up catching a flight until 7:45 p.m.... oh and I forgot to mention that I originally paid for an upgrade for priority seating with more legroom that I never received because they put me on the very last seat that you can't even replying because there is a wall behind you.. SMH"
Cons: "Not allowed single single baggage,"
Cons: "Flight was late arriving to Atl flight was late arriving to Chicago made me miss my connection to FNT American rebooked (after they told me they hold plane I ran through 5 concourses to get there n American still left me and several other passengers) through United late flight to FNT a 4 hr lay-over turned into 6hrs 2 plane changes cause of mechanical issues n had to run 2 concourses over still was late leaving and arriving to FNT...."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The passengers"
Cons: "A/c was broken"
Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth ride On time"
Pros: "Prompt boarding & early arrival. Staff was also friendly"
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Pros: "The flight board on time, the crew was hospitable and seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment, the crew were very hospitable. The flight was on time"
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "My flight to Atlanta was fine and went great"
Cons: "The flight back was delayed 3 times and the worse flying experience would have thought the pilot was a rookie very scary flight"
Cons: "We arrived at 3:20 for a 4:05 flight, attendant said we couldn’t board and were too late, I’m a Delta skymiles member and frequent flyer with American Airlines, I’ve never know an airline where you have to be there 50 minutes in advance, we were at the gate and they said no, how long does it take this horrible company to close the door."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "This is the cheapest for a reason, and honestly the worst airlines I’ve ever seen. Everything was horrible. 3 hour delay, flights canceled, and people everywhere. The weather wasn’t bad and all other airlines were running smoothly. Also, they charge for everything! Even carry on a and water cost money! Ghetto airlines for sure."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "I didn’t like that we had to pay for our snacks. I also had to pay for my carry on even though it was small."
Pros: "Flight took off and arrived on time."
Cons: "Navigating the Spirit Airlines web site is like dealing with a used car salesman; you have to watch every single step of the way, because they will add unnecessary, unwanted charges if you are not careful. After this trip, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I wish I had booked a 1-way flight, rather than round trip, so that I could return on a decent airline. There is a reason that Spirit gets a 1-star rating on www.consumeraffairs.com/ If I have to fly to Atlanta to Philadelphia again, I will take either United or Delta."
Cons: "At least 12 delay changes due to mechanical failure. Original departure was around 3pm on Sunday then it changed to 830pm, past midnight then 1 pm Monday. The gate staff was not trained to deal with customer service disputes. We were poorly informed about statuses. A food voucher was given to us minutes before any restaurant closed so I couldn't use it. I ended up booking another flight with another carrier. When the after midnight delay notification was rendered, I called the outsourced customer service and received no recourse for my inconvenience. Not even a comp checked bag. I was given two $50 vouchers but I don't plan to ever use them again. I'd rather have my refund plus the difference for the other flight and rental car I took just to get home. I also have lost wages."
Pros: "Flight was cancel and the flight customer service mention that it wasn't non refundable on the behalf of the flight I have a whole lot to say very disappointed this is the first time I ever flew and the action that were taking"
Cons: "Horrible experience not a reliable flight"
Pros: "This was the worst customer service I have ever had with any airline. Arrived 56 minutes before departure time but due to too many customers and attempts to let one of the reps know, that I was almost running late, by the time I retrieved my coupon, it was 4 min past their stupid 45 min check in time. And I was told there is nothing they could do but rebook for the next day. Never again will I travel on spirit. I would rather pay more than take the so call poor spirit"
Pros: "NOTHING. IT NEVER HAPPENED!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on short notice and I lost a lot of money in addition to the cost of this trip."
Cons: "I didn't realize the bag that I used as a carry on 2 1/2 years ago was now "too big" and I had to pay $57.00 each way - (to and from destination). I was told by another passenger that it was only spirit who does this. Thus making the "cheaper" airfare - NOT cheaper. Also - NO free beverage or snack. Must pay for those as well. My experience will make me totally rethink about using spirit airlines next time I travel."
Cons: "It took a bit longer to start boarding this flight, I'm not sure the reason. I just know that we began boarding closer to 2:40 than the 2:20 mentioned, which also led to a bit of a rushed boarding to get the flight out in time. After everyone was boarded and seated we sat at the gate for longer than normal as well. Of course, this may have been something to do with flying out of ATL? I know a lot of flights go through there so it wouldn't surprise me if there were mini-plane-traffic-jams."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "A lady helping to help us print boarding passes wasn't very professional. She just said, "you have to print your boarding passes before you go check in your bags." Her tone was commanding and rude. Could use improvement and some fine tuning. I know she didn't mean to be rude. Just needs more training. I got the notice of the gate change when I got home to Baltimore. And things are just too expensive. Even though I checked my bags and paid online, I still paid $40. Too expensive. And you pay for every little thing. I would fly Spirit again, but likely not my first choice."
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "We didn't die tragically young in a fiery inferno of plane parts."
Cons: "This is a very long list and repeats much of what I previously mentioned (hidden fees, lots of 'em), but I will add that at the gate there was some sort of mystery drama that led one of the staff members to some pretty exasperated proclamations. It seemed like a bunch of high schoolers running an airline with the amount of professionalism one might expect from a pep rally. We seriously had concerns about the staff's competence at that point. The strange smell just prior to take off and the instruction to close our vents so the plane could take off didn't do much to reassure."
Cons: "We checked in at the kiosk and then got in the baggage drop line and it was an hour long. Fortunately we were two hours ahead of schedule so we made our flight no problem. The poor couple in front of us missed their flight and was told that it was their fault by the front desk. The front desk person said that they had called for their flight and they should've responded. I can tell you that no one ever mentioned any flight. It wasn't like the line was to check in, it was only to drop the bags and it took forever. Very poor service and I feel so sorry for the people that we're headed to Texas and Missed their 7 o'clock flight. I find it also misadvertisement that we paid $49 for the flight one way and then had to pay $55 for the carry-on. Really the flight was for $104. Next time I will check for all and any options instead of Spirit and be willing to pay more money To go with another airline."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Tried their best to diffuse situation. Flight back was good, first flight to destination was terrible"
Cons: "Had to circle around ATL Airport for an hour and then rerouted to Myrtle Beach, SC. After plane was fueled, it got canceled and the only solution the company had was to have everyone take a bus from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta. 6 hour drive. Waited 5 hours for busses to arrive. A 3 hr flight turned out to be a 15 hr journey to destination. Crazy."
Pros: "Flight cancelled for no reason said weather but there was 12 other airlines going to Tampa also left us hanging refund would take 10 days. No comp of any kind. Will never use this airline again and strongly suggest you do not either. Our flight was only a one way and 1 hour flight and they couldn't even get that right. Talk with other passenger said this is the 4 Th time for him never again"
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination in time and as scheduled."
Cons: "There was no indication anywhere in the reservation process of the costs of bag checks and the "privilege" of a carry on. I was also never sent an email prompting me to check in online and check bags there. (I'm told it's rather cheap if you do it that way) Instead, I was greeted with a 49 dollar fee for my carry on, and 53 dollar fee for my checked bag. That was bumped up another 30 dollars when I discovered bags above 45 lbs are charged extra on spirit. I ended spending more than twice the value of my ticket just for bags, for markups I was never told of and could not of reasonably anticipated as a consumer. This, combined with less than professional conduct from spirit flight attendants, fellow passengers, and the ridiculously uncomfortable conditions on the plane, means I will never be flying with spirit again, and will trust kayak much less. As a comprehensive trip planning service, kayak should be able to generate plane travel costs, and have options to include associated costs such as baggage, with the price of the ticket in flight price tracking. This is a necessary feature for any company that provides a service like Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and accommodating. Very friendly (both pilots and the flight attendants)"
Cons: "Not knowing that a carry on and a check in costs over $50 each (spent over $100, luckily I had the funds but prior, there was no indication of the extra costs being that high) It would have been cheaper to FedEx my luggage. The seats are "pre-reclined" and I could not recline them anymore (I am a tall guy and was looking forward to leaning back a little). the seats were worn down with use (not appealing to the eye)"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendants. Very helpful and grateful they were willing to help me relocate to another seat forward of the rear."
Cons: "When I went online to purchase a seat the only one showing available was 28E at the far back of the plane. When I entered the random choice the assignment was 26C.... why was this one not shown??? And why couldn't I purchase a seat forward of the rear??? This flight was half empty. Thankfully the attendant moved me up to Row 11 which was totally empty. I do NOT like sitting in the back of the plane and that is why I try to purchase a seat over or forward of the wing. NOT a happy camper over this."
Pros: "I guess I don't like anything that spirit has - except for the price which I finally disliked"
Cons: "I have my flight at 9.30 AM and I was at the airport by 8.30 AM. I had to find out where the check in counter is and I was at the check in counter at 8.40. By the time my turn came, it was 8.50 and the agent said I am late as the gate closes 8.45 AM. There is no mention in the itinerary that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure and I was there 45 minutes before the take off. I didn't get a next flight. Now, I can't even cancel the return flight and I lost all the money for the trip. I called the customer service and they said they cant do anything except to book another ticket the next day. Why do they think I would ever travel with them again!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that my $100 flight went up 80% to $180 just to add one single bag then another $60 to check in at airport plus another $60 not to sit in back rows. I cancelled flight and took American Airlines for $147 which included everything that Spirit wanted to charge me $300!!!"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work, app check-in did not work, kiosk check-in did not work. Despite efforts to save money, I was forced to pay over $110 in additional fees. Service counter attendants were not friendly. I asked if I could fly standby on an earlier flight since I had gotten to the airport 4 hours early. I was told "This is not Southwest, you can't get on an earlier plane without paying $120 for it". Flight was changed to a new gate but wasn't updated on the monitor. I had to check flight aware to see what gate we were at. Flight attendants were rude and boasted about being the youngest flight crew in the sky, which is nothing to boast about. There are many veterans of the sky that exhibit amazing customer service and flight expertise. This Moto degrades those who have spent 20 + years in the sky making sure we are safe and comfortable. I would rather have a former fighter pilot with combat experience flying my plane. So spirit airlines, do I think you being young is an advantage over the other airlines, No. I care about customer service and safety. And I have yet to feel that from your airline. From the check-in counter to the flight attendants, the staff treats customers without respect and then charges you for it. I'm done."
Cons: "The staff was rude to us during boarding and they seemed to care less about helping people board. For example, we were trying to find a space in the overhead compartment, the flight attendant in the back of the plane was on her cell phone and she said "just keep looking for space." WOW!"
Pros: "The flight crew on the plane were very professional."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 5+ hours. The staff in the gate at the Atlanta airport were not trained well in how to handle situations like this. It took a very angry, frustrated group of customers venting to get them to try to get better updates than just reciting the time delay. We were to have left at 5:35, essentially dinner time. They didn't offer food vouchers or coffee/water, nothing until their PAYING CUSTOMERS became irate at the lack of information. After 3+ hours, they finally had people wait in line and they handed out 14.00 food vouchers, which was a pathetic response to the issue."
Pros: "Both flights boarded fast and left on time or early. I liked that I got everything I would normally get with a Delta flight for a lot less money. Sure they charge for drinks but I'd rather pay $3.50 for a coke than pay $150 to get it free on Delta. Seats were snug but so are Delta and American seats on most flights so I'm used to that and it was comfortable. And very cheap to upgrade to exit aisle or business class if more room is needed - which I did on the flight home because I had to work on my laptop. Staff was GREAT!"
Cons: "Tray tables are very small. Not enough room to work on laptop unless you upgrade to business class or exit aisle. Little armrest room so be prepared to rub arms with your neighbors. Don't make us listen to ads for your credit card promo. Hate when airlines do that because we are paying to be there and shouldn't be subjected to ads we can't get away from."
Pros: "Never fly this airline, they are horrible! I called several times about my flight because I knew I would be late trying to make the flight and they were rude. Customer Service is horrible. They cheat people out of their money smh. Terrible. I'm currently looking to sue!! Don't fly with them. No matter how cheap it is. Fly with Aleigant or Frontier first. Least they won't just keep your ticket money if you miss a flight they will make amends. SPIRIT is tacky, classless, and just overall a terrible airline. They need to be out of business. Seriously. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "The plane from Atlanta to LAX was new and comfortable. We met 2 friendly crew members in Atlanta at the gate that helped us because James at the check in counter was rude obnoxious and not helpful."
Cons: "Your website is the worst airline website I've experienced and I travel 5-6 times per year on other airlines. Somehow the baggage choices I made at booking did not register and you made sure I paid double at check in. You crew member James in Atlanta was rude and unhelpful. We couldn't understand what he was saying to us and when we asked him a question he was obviously annoyed that we spoke and let us know it. I manage a company with 90 employees in a sales enviroment and he would not work for me 10 minutes. Your business model is disingenuous at best and ends up being a rip-off. You advertise low rates on Kayak and other sites that say nothing about your baggage fees and extra charges. Only after the flight is booked do you find out about the extra, and may I say ridiculous, baggage charges. When the final bill is tallied any other airline would have been cheaper and the service would have been better. This was my first and LAST Spirit flight."
Pros: "Not one single thing!"
Cons: "Having to fly on Spirit, your crooked, deceitful, poor customer service ways. You are the bottom of the bottom! I can't believe that our government allows you to stay in business. Your planes are dirty, reeks of puke, and unsafe. It's only a matter of time before people start having health problems because of your dirty nasty planes and before the planes start falling out of the sky because of the old, poor maintained planes. Do us a favor and merge with another company who knows how to run an airline business like Southwest, American, Delta. Better yet, just SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Everything else. The crew was unenthusiastic, unhelpful, and borderline rude; I was forced to return to my seat multiple times while waiting to enter the bathroom, although other passengers were allowed to move freely. The bathroom in the front of the aircraft was out of service. No complimentary snack or drink is offered; you must pay for the limited selection of snacks and beverages avaialable. Everything from the seats to the menus were tattered; the pouch in back of the seat in front of me has not been cleaned before the flight so to my surprise, I found garbage as I reached for my menu. There is no form of entertainment available; no radio, televisions, or wifi. Nothing about the flight was pleasant and if it had not been the only direct flight available for my destination at the time, I would not have chosen Spirit. This was my first and, hopefully, last time flying with Spirit, barring an extenuating circumstances. You get what you pay for and with Spirit, that's not much."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, not even a free soft drink. There was a lady with 2 kids sitting directly behind us that talked the whole flight from Atlanta to New Orleans. It was rough."
Pros: "The crew. They were nice and respectful."
Cons: "There are kits of fees that you are not aware of until the day of the flight. I can't believe they charge $55 for a carry-on and they don't even give you water in the plane!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It felt like I was knickeled n dimed every time I wanted something I was charged not a big fan of that style of flying"
Pros: "There was a Hispanic gentlemen who told jokes over the intercom and was very nice to passengers"
Cons: "In general, the flight crew seemed jittery, restless, chattery. They seemed unaware that it was an early morning flight, and passengers might be trying to sleep. The lights were turned on halfway through the flight, which seemed inappropriate for those who wanted a quiet morning to sleep. I was in the last seat in the back, and the flight crew would keep shifting around their own luggage in a disruptive way, chatting at a higher volume than appropriate for sleeping passengers. And collecting trash every five minutes seems a bit much. Overall, the experience was the worst flight experience I ever had."
Pros: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Pros: "Left on time, quick boarding."
Cons: "They charge too many silly fees."
Cons: "Check in at Atlanta airport was a mess - there were several lines and it was not clear which line i should take to check in for my flight. Despite i arrived 2 hours before take off, I almost missed the flight."
Pros: "I like getting out of the airport and vowing to never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit's computer system had an "error" which marked me as a security risk. I had to go through intensive security screening TWICE. I was given a hand written ticket that was not honored at the gate stating their computer error has blocked me from flying. With this status I was unable to take my flight or rebook one. Luckily I got a full refund. Definately not worth the hassle and airport drama I will NEVER fly this airline again. I feel sorry for their employees who have to deal with such a shitty system."
Pros: "Someone was in my seat and had to wait till one minute before take off"
Pros: "If you're interested in a quick flight- UNDER $300 almost ANYWHERE**, THIS is the airlines to fly.. It's simple, fast, and got to my destination with little to no hiccups*"
Cons: "Wow, the comments below are all similar.. Look, Prices should be announced as: (ex) Atl to Orlando $160+baggage.. <--- I've heard SO MANY complaints from passengers about baggage fees.. Look, If it's one of the only ways to get extra income, then a simple carryon fee for $25 should be attached accross the board* Even IF someone didn't have a carry on, the $25 should still be within the ticket- THAT WAY, you won't have disgruntled customers having to cough up an extra $50-100+ at the check-in.. AFTER they probably spent too much on their travel.. (Not saying only poor people take Spirit, but there IS a reason people fly with them.. Because it's supposed to be economical*"
Pros: "The flight I ended up taking was quick and actually left on time"
Cons: "I had a 6 am flight. At 5 am we were told that it would be delayed until 10:30. At 8 we were told it would be delayed until 11:30. At 11:20 they announce that our plane landed and just needed to unload and get cleaned and we could start boarding shortly. Two minutes claret we were told the flight was cancelled. They told us everyone would fit on the 3:49 flight that would arrive in Orlando at 4:10. By that time I was tired of waiting and just wanted to get to Orlando so I asked to get on the flight to Tampa that was leaving at 12:15. The airline wouldn't get me a flight that was with delta that would have leaf at 6:55. They only offered a seat on one of their later flights, a refund, or a $7 meal voucher. That meal voucher wasn't even enough to cover the cost of a bagel and coffee. Also when I purchased the ticket it didn't say anything about paying for a carry-on bag. When I got to the airport I found out I had to pay $55 to take my carry-on. This was my worst flight experience."
Cons: "Seats are to close and small no space between the three not a happy camper"
Pros: "The low price flight ticket, until I realized it was $50 to check my bag. Would've rather flown a MUCH nicer carrier with half the bag price. Not likely to fly again unless it's crazy cheap for a short distance."
Cons: "Too expensive of a bag check fee. Small seats. No entertainment. No free food. Cheap, cheap, cheap. No thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Delays. Attitude from the gate"
Pros: "I liked the seat."
Cons: "I had no contact with flight attendant, and how could gate attendant let people on a flight that was nor schedule for the flight. I didn't like to be charged for every single thing, like printing a boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing, Pure bait and switch! The only thing about no frills, was the no frills! No anything, charge for everything, before you are done you pay more than other airlines, with horrendous service,(they don't talk on the phone to you, even to check in!), terrible personality of employees, seats that are plastic and Naugahyde, that don't recline. No food on board, at any cost except for chips and drinks for outrageous costs, no entertainment,(not even an airline magazine!) All of this because of low fairs, that are all bait and switch! Deplorable! As an ex flight attendant, that has flown thousands of miles during my flying career, and thousands since, this was the worst experience I have Ever had!"
Cons: "Everything! Horrific!"
