Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"
Cons: "Needed assistance for limited mobility to make connections at ATL was not provided. Caused us to miss connections and had two falls trying to get around. Air France was terrible. Very limited food and beverage service left us hungry and thirsty on 7 to 10 hour flights."
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crew was great, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "The fact that airlines are trying to charge for every little add-on is pretty annoying. 2 dollars for headphones? Don't even get me started with their snack boxes..."
Cons: "I had an isle seat. I felt jostled all the time."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Its a long, long flight so can't really complain too much. Overall, it was a good flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow one free bag check in on transatlantic flights"
Pros: "Crew was good"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. We had the emergency exit row so leg room was awesome! Kind bar and soda we good."

Pros: "No issues"
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."
Cons: "The choices of free snacks were limited. They should also give more than 1 package of peanut."
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Crew was good, plane was clean. We left on time and got in a bit early."
Cons: "Don't like the Comfort plus seats that have the dividers vs basic arm rests. TSA is a JOKE, got the random strip search where they pulled apart every nook and cranny of my personal bag and carry on item. Relieved me of my PLASTIC corkscrew that I've traveled with for 15 years. Almost missed the flight and I was there plenty early."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No upgrade"

Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Pros: "After a massive power outage, the Delta employees were calm, professional, and kept everything moving as well as they could under the circumstances. We boarded the plane, and then had to deplane while we waited for the pilot to arrive. The updates were timely and we were kept well informed by the ground crew. Hats off to them for making the best of a bad situation!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and pleasant. They didn’t fuss over ym carry on being too big. They were very accommodating. Boarding was very quick again"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed approx 4 hours which made me miss my connection and prolonged the whole travel day."
Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Had exit row so more leg room"
Cons: "Did not announce zones well, no entertainment."
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "N/A"

All went well thank you

Pros: "On time and good flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The chicken wrap was terrible!"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Compliance with departure times"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."
Pros: "Boarding process and crew service were ok"
Cons: "Comfort and entertainment could be better"
Pros: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Comfortable and puntual"
Pros: "Puntual, comfort"
Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."
Cons: "Food service was good. Staff were nice."
Pros: "Free meal on a one hour flight!"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"

Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."
Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."

Aside from the plane being filthy, it was a perfectly fine flight

Sone pleasant staff. On time. No AA staff at gate at boarding time in PHL. Most staff engaged with one another, but not very attentive with customers.

Lost luggage as usual

Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "My inflight entertainment wouldnt work."
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Cons: "The gate in Dallas changed three times, which caused me to walk all over the airport. Then the flight was delayed 3 hours with little communication"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Pros: "Nothing because the fly was delayed"
Cons: "The flight has to be on time"
Cons: "We had to wait for a flight attendant in Louisville going to Chicago, which made us a little late to OHare. Then we had to wait at OHare for another plane to leave. I ran from the one set of gates to the other, but I missed the boarding, even though the plane was still there. I was extremely disappo"
Pros: "Emergency row seating is great for really tall skinny people. Plenty of legroom but seat width by no means helpful."
Pros: "Crew on the plant was friendly."
Cons: "I think at least some small food should be offer even tho it wasn’t dinner time."
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "on time flight, crew member courtesy"
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"
Cons: "The flight could’ve waited for us instead of leaving on time for Allentown!"
Pros: "great trip"
Cons: "Beverages"
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent food options, very clean cabin."
Cons: "I had to pay for water."
Pros: "Crew was very experienced."
Cons: "Not the best. Marginal food and hassled about carry-on that fit the size requirements. More like premium economy."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "The whole experience was stress free and comfortable."
Pros: "Nada."
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Pros: "American did transfer us to another flight after several hours' delay."
Cons: "Lack of scheduled flight crew caused a 2 hour delay causing American to re-route us via Chicago in lieu of Phoenix. Still, arrived 2 hours later..."
Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."
Cons: "Racist gate agent made me check my baggage even though it fit."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Just little delay."
Pros: "Newish/refurbished interior with plenty of overhead storage. Loved USB port. Comfortable and expeditious trip."
Pros: "The crew was pleasent and helpful"
Cons: "Didn't get my bag, on either end"
Cons: "Made us wait over 2 hours on the tarmac before take off inside the airplane."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and did their job effectively"
Cons: "Lack of seat space Planes seemed old Minimal overhead storage room—carry on fits all other airlines overhead but struggled to get bag in compartment Also, no help from crew with this Seats recline nearly into lap of person behind"
Cons: "Departed late and missed connection due to an overage of fuel. The crew took an additional 45 minutes to defuel the plane of 8000 gallons. Wth?! Have to stay overnight in Chicago now."
Cons: "After being delayed without any explanation, I was told that I would not have my purchased 1st Class seat. To add to that I received no service In economy."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that American Airlines try to get me to put my small carry on bag below both ways in the cargo area it is against FAA to have batteries down there. I have 30,000.00 in cameras and they tried to get me to do this both times saying the bag will not fit. The Flight Attendant each time say that it fits JUST FINE! I'm going to try to avoid American Airlines as much as I can!"
Pros: "My flight wasn't completely full, so I had a row to myself. The pilot was excellent; takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "I had to gate check my luggage because of the small plane size. Had I had a shorter layover this could have caused an issue for me."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "Everything was fine except it was inexplicably late!"
Cons: "It was over 30mins late for no reason!"
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "My TV wasn't working and it was the same for a couple of others. They managed to get the others moved stright away but they kept telling me they would reboot it and sometimes it was slow starting up. They rebooted twice and after 2hours 30mins into the 8 hour flight they accepted that it wasn't going to work and they finally asked another passenger would they swap with us. They said that all TV were checked on the ground between flights but this was obviously not the case."
Cons: "Due to a flight being cancelled earlier in the day, flights for the rest of the day were over booked. Instead of getting bumped from flight to flight due to the earlier cancellation, I and 6 other passengers decided to drive."
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Cons: "Always delaysd"
Pros: "Staff polite and helpful. No complaints/ Slept all the way"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was canceled... apparently they won't be able to get me home until 24 hours later than I was scheduled to get there. Standing in line 5 hours later still waiting for vouchers. My bags already went to san diego. Customer service has been confrontational. Terrible all the way around."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work the entire flight (4 hours from Chicago to Seattle) and despite passengers inquiring multiple times, we were never informed whether to expect it to start working or not. Streaming TV was also poor quality on the United app."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew amazing, smooth flight and on-time"
Cons: "Legroom and the fact that there is even s lower version of economy now! Yikes"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew and comfy seats, even in coach."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Cons: "The delay!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled the flight two hours before departure. Weren't apologetic."
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."

Spirit is the worst airline ever. The flight are cheap, but their per-bag charges are astronomical (they even charge for carry-ons!), and they limit your bags to 40 lbs instead on the regular 50 lbs all other airlines allow. Their seats are thinly padded and uncomfortable, there is no in-flight entertainment and they don’t offer you anything during the flight, not even water. Once you add the cost of bags and the uncomfortable flight, it’s not worth traveling with them, unless it’s a short flight and all you need is a personal item like a backpack.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Use American Airlines"
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"
Cons: "Not having to check my bag...$55"
Cons: "I was lied to about my connecting flight waiting for my initial delayed flight. Now I’m stranded."
Pros: "Nothing. We didn’t make the connecting flight."
Cons: "There could have been communication between flights. Had Spirit cleared a gate for our plane in a timely manner and contacted the connecting plane to wait 5 mins we could’ve gotten onboard. Absolute catastrophe. Will be leaving terrible reviews for customer service too."
Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."
Pros: "It's pretty cheap until you have to pay for your bag, carry on, food, seat, counter assistance, etc."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and the crew and the company had different versions of the situation, plus if you sum all the extras you need to pay I'm no longer sure if the flight is still cheap."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great"
Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"
Cons: "Helen the superviser dont let me go she is no good superviser no good no frienley no nathing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't have a 1st officer present and could not get a hold of him. Instead of telling all the passengers, they decided to let us board and made us wait forever before they finally told us we didn't have a 1st officer. After all this they told us to get off the plane and they would let us know when to board again. Finally after the flight had been delayed almost 2 hours, the 1st officer arrived, we boarded and were on our way."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and extremely helpful."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines offers low fares but then uses slight policy differences to charge extra fees. They reduced the size of carry on to an impractical size. I have never had a problem with my carry on, but it would not fit into their criteria, so I had to pay extra. The charge was not based on fitting in the luggage compartment it was just an extra charge for size. First bag $50 and second $60. They charge extra for a bag weight over 40 lbs when the majority of the airlines allow 50 lbs. You're only allowed one item to take on the plane, not a personal item plus a carry on. They charged for water on the plane. I do not recommend flighting Spirit and will not be a repeat customer."
Pros: "The flights where on time"
Cons: "The lauggage I checked in arrived in San Jose completely demolished. I can't even carry it anymore. There is a big whole in my bag pack, so my close are hanging out and the shoulder strap is ripped of completely."
Cons: "No beverage additional seat and carry on charge."
Pros: "Capable friendly crew."
Cons: "Seat/space too small"
Pros: "Everything it was nice"
Cons: "We were super delayed and the crew was very unhelpful. Wouldn't keep us updated and didn't know what was going on."
Cons: "The crew handled the situation poorly."
Cons: "Delayed, poor service"
Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"
Pros: "The crew was fine , not recleaning seats which is horrible in a night flight . The plane looked new"
Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."
Pros: "I like veey much the Crew and the counter attention I can't rate the entertainment for this flight, we didn't have any."
Cons: "I would like to have a free coffee or soda"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"
Pros: "seats need better cushions"
Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."
Cons: "The take off was late, but the arrival was almost on time."
Pros: "Price"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, complete lack of professionalism. You shouldn't even list this airline as an option. My trip was hell."
Pros: "a flight attendant was attentive"
Cons: "$82 for overweight bag; wouldn't let me remove stuff"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. We upgraded to have more space so my boyfriend could sit without being in pain by the small seats and limited leg room and that was much better. The crew gladly gave me some water for medicine and said it was something everyone is suppose to do if needed to take meds. why didn't the first flight??"
Cons: "We had to pay for the upgrade on a pretty empty flight so that we could be comfortable. We also saw people move to the better seats when the flight got going, and we paid $50 each for them and they took them for free."
Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""
Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."
Pros: "the pilot and the attendants. soooooo nice."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."
Pros: "The boarding process was fast, which was nice. However, that is due to one of the things we did not like..."
Cons: "It cost money to carry on a bag! If it had been a small amount... $10-$15 or so, we would have shrugged it off, since the ticket price was lower than other airlines. However, to carry on a bag, it cost $53. To check a bag, it cost $50!! So no matter what, you are spending AT LEAST $50 more EACH WAY! If you were planning on carrying on a bag and checking, then you're really screwed. We were not informed of this when purchasing tickets. The airline hits you with it at check-in, so you really have no choice. Also, on the flight, there was no complimentary drinks. This doesn't bother me at all when it's a short flight, but for a flight that is over three hours, I feel it's the least they can do to offer a beverage. What also made the flight uncomfortable was that the seats did not recline, and the "tray table" was simply decoration. So even if I had decided to purchase a beverage, I would have no where to set it down because the tray table had no place for a cup. It was not big enough to even place a book or laptop on. It was a four hour flight, so I was planning on reading and working on my computer, but that did not end up happening. I would never use Spirit again. It was only $40 or so less than other airlines, and that is DEFINITELY NOT worth it."
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!"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."
Cons: "The ticket counters are a fiasco. I was charged several times for baggage. The attendant at the ticket counter refused to look at my receipt, just telling me to repay at the kiosk. We missed our connection, along with hundreds of other Spirit fliers. EVERYONE I talked with downed Spirit, indicating you wear poor customer service like a badge of honor. I spent an inordinate amount of extra money for my "inexpensive" flight. I am so utterly disappointed."
Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."
Cons: "Baggage fee"
Cons: "Waiting to check in was horrible, stood in line for one hour,..someone was heated clearing missed his flight another couple missed flight. Why does it takes so long to reroute your guest. There were 10 or so agents way down the other in and am excorted in a line with three agents.. then one goes on break. Then a supervisor clearly upset, everyone giving her hugs..darn it all you are busy. then two guys who look like IT people start working on the computers..Man!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This was a terrible flight experience with awful customer service. I was scheduled for flight 498, Houston to San Jose. This flight was cancelled after sitting around for 3 hours due to a flight attendant not showing up. This was deemed as uncontrollable, which I have no idea how your staff members mishap is not controllable. We then had to drive 4 hours North to Dallas to catch flight 972 at 6 AM, which was also delayed. We had to go to Dallas because there was no other Houston flight until Saturday night. Once in Ft. Lauderdale, we boarded and de-boarded our flight, due to a pilots flight hours being over the limit. This is deemed controllable. I don't understand how two similar situations are deemed controllable and un-controllable. I lost money on hotels, time, taxi's, and gas. Spirit owes everyone of this flight a voucher for the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Delays. Cancelled flights. Missed connections"
Pros: "The best part of this flight is that the boarding agent switched my seat at the last minute. I had been talking with a gentleman inline and we were getting along fabulously. When it came time to board, I told him it was nice talking but we were on opposite sides of the plane. The woman taking our tickets said "Let me fix that". I usually fly a different airline and prefer that other airline in every other way, but THIS was the best case of customer service I have ever received from any airline personnel."
Cons: "By the time we landed, my back was sore. Really uncomfortable seats. This is Spirit so I expected that there would not be any free water or snacks, yet that is still disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In the first flight there was a hi genial towel at my seat !! Completely discusting The second one was canceled and I was flying back for an emergency to Fort Lauderdale ( home ) hey make me walk and beg for a flight for me to assist the ER for hours and now I am wotjojt working at home and u cannot walk"
Pros: "Seats are bad"
