Then they charged change of ticket costs for next day flight and did not provide overnight stay. They filled up flight then all agents leave counter so passengers have no one to check in. Then they came back and said it was too late and flight was closed and passenger’s fault. Then they said because bilked through Kayak/Justfly, they said next flight was not available and had to leave on last flight out of Managua the following day. This is unlawful and outrageous activity."

Cons: "The desk attendant tried to bump me off the flight and after a long argument and vociferous complaints on my end I was given a seat on the flight which I had already paid for. After getting a seat for the first leg of the flight I realized I had been put on standbye for the second leg of the flight which meant I would likely get stuck in Panama city. I went back to the desk and after another long argument I was given a seat. I was offered no compensation and they acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me a seat on the flight. When I sat down and asked the girl next to me how her day was going she told me she had had the same expernece as me but becuase she had complained less she had been bumped off of both her flights that she had purchased 6 months in advance without an explanation. Later on the flight from Panama city to san francisco which is a 7 hour flight, Copa airlines has security set up so that you cannot bring any liquids (even water you buy at the airport). This meant the passengers had a 7 hour flight without water. The crewd came through the cabin 2 maybe 3 times with drinks but this is not nearly sufficient for a 7 hour flight if you cant bring your own water..."
Pros: "Now you are giving away free muffins instead of insulting with a granola bar....THANK YOU FOR LISTENING"

Pros: "no les interesa ningun inconveniente que tenga uno con las personas de seguridad"
Pros: "Great experience!! Departed on time. Everybody was very professional. will only flight Copa from now on."

Pros: "FOOD & STAFF. Smooth landing."
Pros: "flight attendants were very courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Copa provided us with nice food and drinks and were very courteous with passengers"

Pros: "Loved the customer service loved the fact that they actually feed you lunch and dinner. With alchol included. Whole experience was perfect"
Pros: "I upgraded to Business Class, the flight attendant was kind, helpful, and attentive. She came by and immediately took my order for a drink ask me what kind of dinner I would like and ensured I had everything I needed.

Cons: "Everything was great, no complaints here!"

Pros: "I've been using Copa for a few years and my experience with it has been great. They try to go beyond to make it right for you."
Cons: "Plane delayed on tarmac on arrival. Immigration line was chaos with no staff helping to provide order. Missed my connection and changed to another flight the next morning - aeromexico would not pay for hotel or taxi. Supervisors were rude and dismissive, didn’t care about effect on my plans."
Pros: "Movies and shows. Blankets. Prompt staff on plane. Snack options."
Cons: "Ticket counter was stubborn to release our boarding passes despite having already checked in online. Saying we were “too late”. The kiosk would not release our boarding passes either. Yet, we breezed right through security to the gate and we’re first to board the plane having had to actually wait awhile before boarding. The ticket counter person unnecessarily made us wait even longer when we were already running late due to having spent 11 hours in the hospital day prior from E. coli. The boarding process was also sloppy. Three different attendants asked to see our passports. Why did everyone need to verify us? We were asked very silly and seemingly unnecessary questions before boarding further slowing the process. We were asked before boarding if we had checked a bag, not sure what difference that made."
Cons: "Mas separación entre pasajeros"
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Flight was at 1 got to the airport at 1208. They got me and my oversized luggage on the plane in time for take off."
Cons: "The meal was a pasta with no protein. While delicious, along side it’s compliments of a salad, bun and yogurt, it was no bueno for someone avoiding carbs. Obviously a pathetic comment but one none the less."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats"
Cons: "Don’t have long layovers"
Cons: "This part of the flight was good, Mexico City to Los Angeles was terrible."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing about boarding"
Cons: "After being the only person pulled out of line for my carryon and myself to be checked at the boarding gate, I asked a simple question to the lady who profiled me, “what made you profile me for this additional security check out of hundreds of passengers here, I’d like to know”. I was met with such rude behavior which I never encountered with any airline before. Not only was her attitude rude, she couldn’t answer my question and Aeromexico didn’t bother to get someone fluent in English to answer me. Notice I wasn’t refusing the security check; it’s just that they were rude, cold and made me feel like a criminal while checking me. They need to improve their system for security checks at the boarding gate. I don’t understand why I had to be checked further bc they already check every passenger before entering the gates and boarding area. I still don’t know the answer to my question. The lady’s attitude embarrassed me and ruined my experience. Aeromexico should retrain their staff and make them realize it’s bc of us they have a job and they should be serving us with proper customer service and have their attitudes in check. Because I have every right to ask that question and will continue to do so! I forgot the lady’s name..but would be happy if my msg got taken seriously and the lady made aware.."
Cons: "We waiting for 45 minutes on the run way because was not a corridor ready to depart we are number 8 on line. Was not entertainment available the system was down no music, no movies, no nothing"

Cons: "On my way back, it took long time to check the luggage in I was seated almost at the end. No personal t.v."
Pros: "Lots of free entertainment options. Easy USB locations where you can charge your phone. Somehow got called to cut line and board right away. They provided food (though had I known, I would have ordered vegetarian)."
Cons: "Some turbulence"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Cons: "I buy a flight ahead of time so I can be back home on time to work, I get it delays can happen, there was already a delay to start off well, turns out the flight is OVERBOOKED & even tho I arrived 3 hours earlier prior my flight I had to wait 9+ hours for another flight. If you don’t have enough seating available don’t sell a ticket that you know doesn’t exist. It’s not the first time it happens with Aeromexico, their airline is HORRIBLE & I didn’t expect with my first experience with Kayak to be just as bad. Never buying a flight through this website ever again nor am I planning to fly with Aeromexico."
Cons: "The ground crew in CDMX is inept."
Pros: "Um nothing"
Cons: "Checked in online and got the check in line only to have the lady tell me I’m too late and that I never checked in. They did manage to charge my baggage fee though? I had to book a different flight and tackled on another $500 dollars to my trip. Will bever use my Aeromexico club premier again."
Pros: "I’ve upgraded to executive and the service was excellent"
Pros: "All of the foreign stewardesses were kind."

Cons: "Ran out of fuel and had to make atop at St. Louis for about 1-1/2 hrs So got delayed needed to get to Chicago at 11 and ended up at 1:30"
Pros: "Counter help was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Buying through Vayamos, when initially going to AM website I was directed to go to Delta site. They rejected me, I called them, recording said they would call me back in more than 2 hours. Etc, etc A horrible experience."
Pros: "Everything once we boarded"
Cons: "Customs, Mexico City airport was awful. Had to deplane on the runway, load busses, wait,wait some more. Super long lines to get through customs. Wrong info on departure gate. No signs, very poor information."
Pros: "Everything was great. The airplane was comfortable and clean."
Cons: "We were delayed 7 hours and offered $10 USD in food to compensate"
Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "good service!"
Cons: "both flights were delayed."
Pros: "Confortable seats, food on board and free! Nice service"
Cons: "Mexico Airport can be confusing. You have to be prepared to ask Aeromexico’s staff for help. They are very helpful though!"
Cons: "I bought a Business fly, they change the aircraft, no motive in advance. And they del did not offer nothing. Moreover, they try to hide it and denide, to see if you do not react."
Pros: "Punctuality and service. Also the landing"
Pros: "Service and complimentary at-seat entertainment."
Cons: "There is a $25 checked bag fee for the first bag."
Pros: "Puntuality and service"
Pros: "Wi-Fi and the worker's very nice. TV food"
Pros: "I like that you can bid extra to upgrade to 1st class. It was well worth it to have better seats and more room. I liked the entertainment options. There was a lot of movies I wanted to watch."
Cons: "unfortunately the seats didn't fold flat or have a zero-gravity position. The food wasn't any special."
Pros: "Inside the plane the food (COLD SANDWICH) has a horrible and monotonous taste . Outside the plane the service is poor. You meet aggressive people without any clue of courtesy. I saw disable passenger without any attendance when wheelchair was requested.They don't have any idea that you are part of a business industry with many competitors. I will never recommend in my community to use your services. You are the worse of the third world."
Cons: "I experience an incident that affected emotionally my family. One hour after depart from Mexico City, the fly attendance announce that we need to land in Guadalajara for safety/security reason. You removed a youth passenger without any strong and fair reason, because he was unlucky this day: He was accommodated together with 2 members of a middle east family that was logically to be filled by the 3. he touch friendly the kid near him and his father that was in different place??? react negative against this normal gesture of the youth passenger. Why you didn't put the entire family together from the beginning?"
Pros: "Everyone who worked on this trip was very friendly and helpful. They all handled the high pressure and busy nature of the job with excellent professionalism."
Pros: "Service is really good"
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Pros: "Overall the flights went smoothly"
Cons: "Check in process was very slow and totally disorganized. It happened both leaving and returning. Took one hour to checkin in Orlando and about the same when leaving Mexico City. Could do with some major improvements here....."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, good overall flight"
Cons: "Please offer a vegetarian food option. Many people would enjoy it. It's healthier, tastes better. Simple veg sandwich or bowl of rice and beans? There are many options for a simple vegetarian meal. Only option to eat is white bread with a piece of processed meat. People take it but many people would love another option"
Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"
Pros: "I like the non stop flight."
Cons: "I honestly don't see the point in having so many terminals to check in. I had my reservation code I was even able to pay for my bag and wouldn't print out the boarding pass so I had to go to the assistance counter. There was one one person helping out with this issue and took me close to 30 mins to be able to get a boarding pass"
Pros: "La amabilidad y la atencion."
Cons: "La música muy aburrida."
Pros: "Initially all was good, only issue I had was seats were a little uncomfortable and food tastes old but crew was friendly and drinks were included so I'm a happy camper!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this helped us because our flight prior was also insanely delayed."
Pros: "The crew was amazing with passengers that were less than amazing!"
Cons: "Releasing passengers in smaller amounts of rows might have been better."
Cons: "Hire people that don’t hate the job ."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and did the best it could with what is given to them."
Cons: "No space, super gathered, big chance of spread. Delayed take off"
Pros: "La atención súper mal La azafata con una mala actitud cuando me hacia una pregunta Retraso de más de una hora en la salida del vuelo"
Cons: "Necesitan una mejor capacitación en la atención al cliente las azafatas"
Cons: "If you choose basic economy and have only a personal item (packing lite), they will not let you check in online ahead of time."
Pros: "All was excellent"
Cons: "I really loved everything"
Pros: "First class is amazing"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "There was no WiFi or TVs"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "So crowded, seats uncomfortable, wifi not working completely, screaming children."
Cons: "The seating and comfort"
Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."
Pros: "I liked the quickness of the boarding and the going through a fast lane for tsa. I enjoyed the WiFi and being able to charge my phone while enjoying a free movie in my phone."
Cons: "I don’t like you have to pay for the tv, and snacks could be a little bigger I guess"
Cons: "The attitude of the workers at customer service. No apologies, no free water, did not tried to find alternatives. My flight was not the only one, at least a mother 2 flights were delayed. Each attendant gave a different explanation. So, not only we list our flight and mess up our schedule, I had to pay another $80 for the taxi 3 times: for my original flight and again for the second flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Almost got diverted to Tampa by thunderstorms, but this was not United's doing."
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Cons: "I had very little time to make my connection in Newark. Other airports/airlines have given me a short connection pass which has allowed passengers to make their connection with less stress. The security line inNewsrk was ridiculous. I spoke to a TSA agent who couldn’t have cared less if I missed my flight and a United representative who told me to “just try.” In the end, I had to ask other passengers if I could go ahead of them. While I made my flight with a few minutes to spare, the process could have been much easier and the United Rep could have done more. He could have just called the gate at the very least to let them know I was coming. Apathy is not an indication of good customer service."
Pros: "I had no problems the gate agent was very nice and I did get the basic economy which that only did I have to pay for my bags but I also got the last seat in the back in the corner which is OK I guess I’ll pay more attention to the fair I still probably saved a little money but I don’t know that I save that much I think that sometimes the boarding agent needs to pay attention to the carry-on luggage for sure bring a lot carry-on luggage which doesn’t allow for others to have carry-on luggage who were in the later groups and then they get penalized with their bags being checked as there’s no more room and they’re not basic economy but other than that I like taking United they have nonstop service between Orlando in Houston and it’s been a wonderful experience most of the time and I think the airlines do a pretty good job considering the traveling public themselves to be very challenging at times professionalism and courtesy works both ways and unfortunately people buy tickets and think that it’s a one-way street. they then run to the media who loves to make it about the big guy versus the little guy anyway good job united and I will continue to fly you when you’re the most appropriate carrier to get me to where I want to be."
Cons: "Nothing I just need to pay more attention to my ticket purchase I didn’t realize it was a basic economy until after I bought it which meant I had to pay for my bags which added $50 to my fair which wasn’t that big a deal but then I got a seat all the way the back in the corner which really wasn’t that bad either but if I went to Carrynon a bag I was allowed to do so"
Pros: "The fast and electronic check in"
Cons: "The ground staff"
Pros: "The flight back to Houston"
Cons: "The system was down and took about two hours to get my boarding ticket"
Pros: "Spacious seating, quickly boarded. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food, snacks were really stingy."

Pros: "The jet did not crash."
Cons: "Boarding, staff, instructions, overpriced everything"
Pros: "Got their early."
Cons: "Took an extra 20 minutes to get our luggage as it came after everyone else's, of course."
Pros: "On time departure and arrivial"
Cons: "I reserved a window seat and I had a middle seat."
Pros: "I fly about four times a year if not more. Always delays, missing my connections or running like a maniac trying to get to my connection. BUT. This was the first time in a very long time that I actually boarded on time."
Cons: "The crew members for some reason had attitudes. The two/ plus hours in the plane , not one cracked a smile..One,literally threw a tiny bag of snacks on my tray, which bounced off and she proceeded to step on them .... oh well. I'll take a not-so-nice hostess over delays and missing connections . Maybe I'll find an airlines that can give me both?"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "They gave us free tv to watch but my headphones didn't work in the jack. Even the pair they gave me didn't work. Also my flight was almost an hour late."
Pros: "Free Entertainment options"
Cons: "Lairs Stealers No ticket for flight If there's an emergency don't count on Kayak ever. Run around and around"
Pros: "I slept through whole way. So it was fabulous. Clean and fast trip."
Pros: "It is really bad the seat to small for average person not leg room at all it is a flying school bus."
Pros: "Staff members were courteous."
Cons: "I froze for 5 hours!"
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "-Complimentary Snack and beverage -Can pick your seats when booking -Changing Tables in restrooms -Entertainment options -Early boarding for families with small children"
Cons: "-Free Soda but charged for water -Had confirmed seats but then our party with 2 toddlers got split up -Semi convenient( rather small could hardly fit a 1 year old) changing table but then flight attendants threw a fit when a stinky diaper was changed in there. -Had to have special programs on device to even play anything, thought I had everything on for return flight to watch movies but nope still needed something extra Wifi only works for United App and Website -Waiting in the shorter line to preboard with our 2 toddlers only to be cut off by a Global Travel Program(?) family with 15+ people"
Pros: "Everything was the way a flight should be. Crew was nice and polite. T.v. was a plus, and a drink to wet your throat, also a plus"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't like"
Cons: "Short on storage space for carry ons. Forced to check my bag on the return flight"
Pros: "Although the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane i got my money back."
Pros: "I liked 2 of the 10 people I asked for help getting my 78 year old mother to our gate and making the flight"
Cons: "I felt it Ridiculous that I had to get checked luggage, go out of secure zone and come back through. There was NO interest in helping us make our connection; had one person actually say, "I am sorry, it is United, they could care less". No one was helpful, no one cared, and the experience was horrible"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Checking in. We did it electronically When we went to the counter to give our bags extra staff were talking with each other about trying out to be a stripper. No hello. No smile. Just looked at our info and took our checked bags. We pay more for tickets and bags and are getting less service. It is time to bring back customer service"
Pros: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "They did not provide alcoholic drinks, the TVs could only be accessed by paying for them, and there was NO food provided on an INTERNATIONAL flight. Absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "After United made me miss my connecting flight, I got an alternate flight to a different airport, but not apology, no offer to upgrade, nothing. Already frustrated, and with my knees hitting the seat in front of me because the seats are too close together, a flight attendant scolded me when I dared put my leg in the aisle (which I often do on other airlines without incident). Once on the ground, I went straight to United's baggage office to see if my bag had followed me, and encountered two of the rudest people, cutting me off whenever I said anything more than they needed to enter into their computer. If your job is in customer service, be friendly, apologize when things go wrong, understand that your customers are your reason for being in business, and be helpful."
Cons: "Again, spicy snack. Long flight, you had to have the latest app on your phone or pad to watch a movie, flight from Houston to Boise had movie/tv monitors. Loading 4th group to the back of the plane makes it tough."
Cons: "Departure was changed twice until I would miss my connecting flight. I was sent to another airlines with not much help. Stayed in the airport an additional five hours."
Pros: "flight was excellent"
Cons: "Monitor kept running commercials and a show i couldn't hear very annoying"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room!"
Pros: "Didn't. We're very uncomfortable - no leg room and little recline. Makes one consider anything other than airplane transit"
Cons: "Flight was late Unacceptable"
"The flight price was really low. The seats were not that comfortable."
"The prices on snacks n beverages can be better"
"Left on time and arrived early! Deplaned quickly and all around efficiency"
Pros: "Nothing ! Flight was uncomfortable"
Cons: "My daughter was charged $65 for carryon that followed the required measurements. And the gate agents were extremely rude about the situation! We were not charged on the previous flight with the same bag."
Pros: "Not contable seats at all!!!"
Cons: "They should offer a snack and drink for flights!!"
Pros: "Seats were close the front"
Cons: "Due to that fact that Covid-19 is present and we have to wear masks and stay six feet apart... I feel that he flights should not have been full... how can u stay six feet from someone who u don’t know is covid free when u are sitting on top of each other... Orlando airport is the worst airport I’ve ever been to.. they only had a limited amount of restaurants to feed a overcrowded airport... spirit airlines is the worst airline of all and I will never fly with them again... they changed my direct flight from Baltimore to new Orleans to Baltimore to Orlando then to New Orleans with no warning.. that was was very unprofessional... I definitely do not recommend to fly spirit ever again... I will still use kayak in the future for travel"
Pros: "Seat very small and is plastic based"
Cons: "They charge for carry on bags $60"
Cons: "The airlines cancelled the flight an hour before. Then only offered a refund or a flight 24hrs later."
Pros: "Plane was clean crew was friendly"
Pros: "Few were friendly"
Cons: "Clean the plan before starting the boarding process"
Pros: "Cleanliness and nice staff"
Cons: "A woman sitting next to me had her full size purse on her lap the entire flight and it was difficult to move. The rule is everything goes under the seat in front but it didn’t apply to her."
Pros: "The crew was good!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "If the flight wasn’t so packed"
Cons: "I payed for your big chairs in the front and they didn’t recline back at all. Spirit, your seats suck as well as all you feed for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "Deben dar algo de tomar"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Seat was like any other."
Cons: "What is the point of "social distancing" when you pack every single seat sitting on top of one other and throw out the guidelines the second you step on the plane?"
Cons: "Spirit crew back in SJ a little unfriendly"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first plane ride and although the crew didn't know that fact, they still made me feel welcome!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind, it was all very well done."
Pros: "The Flight was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. everything was perfect, thank you for taking me safe home!"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining."
Cons: "Flight was entirely too full for social distancing."
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "Awful experience. Early in the day I received several updates about my flight being delayed. No details on why, but much appreciated. Upon arriving to the airport the flight was still showing 59 mins delayed. Oddly, with all of the early communxaruin, it suddenly ceased! No communication for at least 2 hrs before the flight. Even as the 'would be' boarding window, the line formed with people asking questions... yet there were no answers or updates to the proposed time of departure. Even when the 59 min late departure came and went, there was NO communication. Folks were in an uproar! Finally, with no announcement, the gate attendant just started checking boarding passes and letting people go through the gate. Huh? I have zone 1, yet he said, we're just boarding everybody.... and, on the 3+ hr flight, only 1 bathroom worked. AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."
Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."
Cons: "Could not fault Spirit Airline. They are clear and open about extra charges. Joining their reward club is beneficial if doing multiple flights with the airline."
Pros: "Plane was ok for a low cost"
Cons: "Boarding; always delays with Spirit."
Pros: "Crew were polite, but one did not take her time to look at every passenger when picking up the last trash. She walked by us very quickly without looking at all. When I asked if I could give her our trash when she was on her way back to her seat, she said, “we’re all done now, sorry” and she kept walking. The pilots did a wonderful job during take off, during our flight and landing! We’re all blessed for such a safe flight."
Cons: "Zone 4 appears to be the largest zone to board the plane and did in fact take the longest. I think the zones could be broken up better and should be so that apart from the benefit of boarding early, the rest of the paying passengers don’t have to wait for long periods of time to board, our satisfaction should matter too. Also, my 5 year old was super sad and disappointed that the flight did not serve snacks (even though we ate while waiting at the gate for our flight to arrive). He looks forward to the snacks that many airlines serve aboard. Just thought I’d mention that."
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "Seats were nice and stewardist."
Cons: "Was running late because roads were almost to point of non drivable. Zero visibility. The spirit machine would not print my boarding pass. It said see an attendant for assistance. I checked in day before flight. The man at first would not help me print my pass. I couldn't pull my pass up on smart phone but I had the receipt and confirmation. Finally he helped and printed my boarding pass. People shouldn't be treated like this. I pay my taxes and I don't have to choose spirit. I can fly through another airliner. The fact that he was giving me a hard time on Christmas was even worse. If I acted that way at my job I'd be fired. Thank you for sending me your survey and have a great day and a happy new year."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! Quick, courteous, responsive."
Cons: "TSA precheck. My reservation indicated it was entered, but it didn't print on the ticket. When I brought this to the attention of Spirit CSRs, The answer was "Yeah, sometimes it does that." Unacceptable. TSA precheck is a convenience for passengers and, more importantly, an added level of security for TSA personnel. Prechecked passengers have already been background screened. These passengers are known safe entities in an uncertain security environment. Each person prechecked is one less security threat TSA needs to assess, meaning TSA can focus more effort on potential threats. Denying a precheck customer precheck status makes everyone's life more difficult. Fix your system, then train employees on how to appropriately deal with these issues."
Cons: "Although weather conditions were not Spirit's doing, on the return flight we had to wait in the tarmac for 3 hours to unload and 2 hours to retrieve baggage, we had a very rude crew member that eventually had a passenger return his rudeness with the same. After 2 hours of waiting was when Spirit decided to offer us 3 oz of water and a tiny package of cookie. Thank God for no medical emergency, but they didn't come out and offer actual bottles of water and/or a real snack. Terrible consideration toward the passengers."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is the worst airlines by showing cheap ticket prices, but then charges you for getting a seat and carry-on bags. Their customer service is just as bad. Had a medical emergency and a family member had to be taken to the emergency room on the departure day and although the ticket was unrefundable they gave me a stinken $60 credit that has to be booked in the next month. Unlike the other airlines I was flying back on that gave me a FULL credit of the unrefundable ticket price to be used within the next year! Kudos to American Airlines!!"
Cons: "Check-in at reservations section was terrible...there were 2 lines of passengers checking in and 1 line had 3 agents checking passengers in and the other line had 1 agent checking passengers in. We were second in line...in the wrong line with only 1 agent checking passengers in...we waited 20 minutes to get helped, because the party in front of us (with 2 in line) actually had a ticket for 6 passengers (4 of whom showed up several minutes later), who had to decide/pay for luggage options ,etc.. If you have 2 lines & 4 agents, 2 agents should be serving each line...enough for me never to fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "We got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Reason's why I rated each category poor: Overall - see below categories Boarding - We were told that our bags did not count as personal items, and we had to either pay $130 to carry on two bags or throw them away. Basically, "Have a nice trip, let me start by robbing you." Crew - During the flight, I used the on-flight lavatory. As is normal in most flights, there's no space between the last row of passengers and the mini-room at the back of the plane. To keep from putting my rear in another passenger's face, I stepped into the mini-room until the stewardess commanded that I wait behind the "silver line." Sorry other passenger. At the least be courteous about your command with me and/or the passenger who had to sit in the rear (pun intended). Comfort - No seat back storage, and the flight was as cold as is bearable for the average person. Food & Entertainment - None available. Upon asking for water, we were instead offered ice."
Pros: "Staff and crew were polite, friendly and competent in spite of a significant overbooking situation to solve (unless this is typical Spirit and they're just used to it)"
Cons: "We chose not to "purchase" seats so as to keep the flight price low. What I did not realize in that is how close we came to almost not having a seat. About an hour before the flight came the inevitable "we are overbooked and will compensate for anyone who wants to take a different flight". Shortly afterward came the announcement that the plane they were expecting was significantly smaller than anticipated and the last 30 people to check in who did not purchase a seat would be bumped - too bad so sad. Fortunately for us we had checked in right at the 24 hour mark and were not part of that group of 30. Bag fees are quite high and size limitations are much more stringent - we needed to use different suitcases so as to not exceed their maximums."
Pros: "Used Kayak to find cheap flights that fit our time frame. Spirit airlines proved to be a quick and reliable airline getting us to Chicago 15 mins early. When departing Chicago email notifications kept us up to date on possible delays of flight caused by weather conditions. I called Spirit customer service representative and changed my flight to avoid the worst of the weather. They were able to make the changes and honor the seating arrangements I had made for my family of five. Great experience!!"
Cons: "Customer service was terrible before both of my flights. Both times I was not assigned a seat and had to go to the counter to get it. When I got to the counter no one had boarded the plane. By the time everyone had borded the plane I was still in the line. I had already told the representative that I needed a seat. I was getting anxious because I did nnot want to lose my flight and attempted to talk to both reps to see what was going on. One told me I had to wait for the other rep, without even looking at my face. The other ignored me many times until he heard me complain to another customer."
Cons: "When we checked online to see if the flight was on time, it stated that it was delayed over 2 hours. We still had our daughter to the airport within 15 minutes of the originally scheduled flight. When she got to the terminal she was told that the flight left early, there were no more flights, and she was charged $99 to rebook for the next morning. The attendant was also rude to her, once she was able to get her off her (personal) phone. I believe they should have actually apologized for the inconvenience instead of charging her. This airline is the WORST."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 mins and since my conncetion was so tight, I missed my flight to New Orleans from Ft. Lauderdale. I was re-booked on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta for a 8 hour layover. Once aboard my flight to New Orleans from Atlanta, a mechanical issue left us sitting on the tarmac for an additional two hours. My scheduled six hour trip turned into 16 hours. This caused me major inconvenience as I was forced to take an unexpected day off from work. Despite me loosing a day's wages, Spirit Airlines was unable to make any concessions. I paid in full for my checked luggage, despite souvenirs being broken, and was forced to pay for any in-flight beverages & food. Spirit Airline staff was clearly not accommodating nor friendly. Soft drinks and snacks were costly."
Pros: "Good people working, all seemed nice. Even if some of the experience is less than spectacle, you know what to expect on spirit."
Cons: "Boarding: can't check in online early, if you are going to assign seats then why use zones, either board from the back of the plane by row or go by zones, but it's silly to have a seat number and still deal with zones. Can't pick a seat without paying, that's just silly. Block off the seats that need to have an upcharge and then let people pick seats if they want, it just keeps people happier and costs you nothing. Other: you should not ask about food or entertainment since the food on the plane costs money and most people don't purchase it, especially on short trips like this one. And there is no entertainment available, so asking me to rate it is pointless (plus if there was entertainment, I'm sure that would just be another purchase item). Seats: are mediocre at best"
Cons: "All in all, we were delayed about 45 minutes, but it's how it happened that was so frustrating: There was an inexplicable pause in boarding, which was obviously a delay that was never communicated on the airport terminal displays. Then after we boarded, we were informed that the bathrooms weren't working and anyone who needed to go would need to get off and then we could leave when they were back - another delay. Then we were told the bathrooms would work we took off, so some people went back to their seats. Then the story changed and the bathrooms were not going to work and be locked for the whole flight, so a bunch of people had to get back up to deboard the plane. Keep in mind, this was a late evening flight to Orlando, so plenty of tired kids with small bladders aboard."
Pros: "The price is right for the base fare, but Spirit gets you with all the extra fees. Baggage cost is very high, and higher at the airport if you don't 'pre-purchase' bags to check online. The weight allowance for checked bags is only 40 pounds with massive fees for heavier bags, and they charge for carry on, too. Checking just one 30 pound bag doubled my total cost of flying, and it would have been more if I hadn't pre-purchased. They even charge for water on the plane, which I find really bad. Maybe it's just me, coming from Australia where you're legally required to provide free water, but this rubs me up the wrong way. They also charge if you need agent assistance to check in at the airport. The staff were all very polite and friendly, and the overall experience was fine, but the extra fees do NOT make it worth it. It makes the guests feel unwelcome and each extra step and extra charge makes the whole experience more stressful and complicated. You could pay a slightly higher base fare with United, for example, but probably save money with more generous baggage/check-in procedures, and have a worry-free experience, too. The staff were great; it's the company policies I have a problem with."
Cons: "Ridiculous fees and charges for every aspect of the flight. Not a fan. Probably won't fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours for mechanical issues. The staff at the gate was the unprofessional...rude, sarcastic and just plain miserable. I even witnessed a shouting match between the gate crew and a customer who walked up to ask what the new time for take off was...She answered his question by stating, "the same time I said 5 minutes ago." The male passenger didn't hear the announcement (because she talked so fast). He kept asking and she kept repeating her snarky response about "the time time I just told you" until it became heated. Absolutely ridiculous. Not much improved when we made it on the aircraft. It felt like it was a shell of what a "finished" aircraft should look like. All in all a pitiful experience. I hate that I already purchased my return flight with Spirit. Saving $50 was NOT WORTH IT!!!!!"
Cons: "They would not let us on the plane despite being there 25 min before the flight left. They said we had to check-in online, which we tried twice to do, but it wouldn't let me because a balance for our baggage and seats did not go through. Interestingly, when I entered the credit card info it never once told me the credit card was invalid or that any issue had occurred. When I called the number it gave when it wouldn't let me check in I got an automated system that had no option for "speak to a representative" or "check-in." The ticketing counter told me they literally can't print a ticket after 45 min until flight and Latrobe's single gate TSA checkpoint "closed" at 6:30 for this 7 flight. Meanwhile, I watched "security" walk behind the counter when we got there. Spirit refused to refun is the money for the flight. We will never fly Spirit or out of Latrobe PA EVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the pilot did a great job. There were bad storms in Orlando but you wouldn't know it with the flight. All Spirit flights I have taken have had good pilots and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "When I arrived at Chicago-O'Hare to check in, there was a line around the block for only Spirit Airlines. They had 2 people working at the kiosks and both were slower than molasses. There were several employees that walked up to the kiosks but none of them assisted customers. They had no urgency at all. On top of that, the lady that I interacted with was very rude. She talked to me like I was a complete moron and apologized that another Spirit team in Orlando "didn't do their job properly but O'Hare employees follow the rules". Overall, not impressed at all and I will avoid booking with Spirit on future flights."
Cons: "Them charging $100 at the gate for a carry on. My carry-on was a normal size bag which I have taken on MANY flights with different airline and have NEVER had any issue. When I checked in they did not say anything. At the security the attendant marked something on my boarding pass but did NOT advise me that my bag was big by their standard. When boarding the plane they saw my boarding pass and asked for $100. It was then they informed me that when I checked in they should have charged me $55 which is their rate. But at the gate it is $100. Since I was at the gate I had no choice but to pay the $100. $55 for carry-on bag that all other airline has not issue with is ridiculous. Having to pay $100 for a CARRY on bag is absurd. This was my first and last time with Spirit airlines. Nor will I ever recommend Spirit airline to anyone."
Pros: "liked the cost. flight was good plane was clean but could have been a bit cleaner (windows) seats we good (could have been a little softer) I noticed that some of the flight crew were not as focused on their attention to the passengers. I did notice that the stewardess in our area (who sat right in front of me (exit seat )) was on her cell phone texting or playing a game or what ever young people do on their phones. as a travelling public person, my comfort level or expectation is that all the time I am on board, that the crew is on duty and focused on their duties, which should include, not being distracted by using personal electronic devises at anytime. Secondly, the uniforms that the attendants wore seemed to be a little less cared for or clean as other airlines. Lastly, (this may be picky,) but it seemed that the hair of a few of the attendants seemed unkempt at a level in keeping with the beautiful airplane we were in. There was a steward that came on the plane who looked light his shirt was too big (collar was too big for his neck) as was the size of his coat. As a business owner myself, I appreciate the small things, as these can be the things that overshadows all of the other things we do to provide a good product, service or experience for our customers. Personal inner Professionalism is a mindset that transcends and fuels ongoing service, at levels which a rule book alone cannot attain. (employees who are proud of where they work, who they work with and for, end up delivering on our promises as owners.) I like your web site and appreciate the "fun" you have built into it. I understand the message it sends, but as we know, most people expect the lower fares from Spirit, but don't get the steps you must take to be able to provide those fairs and still cover ALL THE BILLS. Continued success in the future. Jim Holland"
