Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good."
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline. Will avoid flying through Delta if they allow their team to lie to their passengers. Both land crew and onboard crew were disrespectful to their passengers."
Cons: "agent boarding delayed boarding because she wanted everyone to check their bags. A flight that was leaving 2 minutes later than our flight started boarding before our plane. It wasn't that the 2 planes arrived at different times. The agent was just horrible. In the end, she lied to the passengers that there were no overhead space left. When I went to get my seat, most of the overhead space was empty!! I had to check-in my bag and my bag was damaged by the delta crew."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Delays Why is it always a surprise for the crew that the plane needs to be de iced in the winter"
Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment in my seat did not work properly so I could not enjoy watching movies or shows. A minor but unfortunate inconvenience."

Pros: "Our original flight was delayed and Marika, at the Delta gate of another flight to the same city, was able to get us on the flight that was going to our city.

She barely slept the whole flight and I had a stuardis in a red dress who whem I asked for for a beverage made it seem like I asked for it right now. Didn't say a word Else to me until it was time to land and my daughter had just fell asleep. She told me. I had to take her out of the baby carrier. My daughter needed a diaper change and there were no places to change her. I tried to change her by the door really fast. The stuardis said no go change in a bathroom I asked which one had a changing station they said none and to just change in my lap. Plus my car seat was broke when I got it back."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Woot! For food on the SAN to JFK flight!"
Cons: "I hate that I booked and checked in early, but still had my seat assignment changed twice before boarding, and when I got to my seat, it was in front of the exit row, and my seat wouldn't recline. It was terribly uncomfortable"
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Cabin air was very warm. Individual A/C fan was very slow. With it being a night flight, I was unable to read since my overhead light was not working."
Cons: "We had over 2 hours layover in Atlanta. After eating lunch at getting to gate B1 and waiting a while, I got an alert from the Delta app on my phone that said that the flight was now loading at A30. This was incorrect information that had several people upset. This was my first flight to use the Delta app to track my baggage. It was never updated to let me know where it was until after I landed in BHM. The app indicated that my bag was on another flight"
Pros: "In business class- great food and staff"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."
Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Cons: "Fue un viaje , sin ningún problema satisfecho sólo con algunos detalles en cuestión de equipaje no se si son los trabajadores de la aerolínea, ya que mis maletas sufrieron varios daños las 4 q traían espero la aerolínea preste más atención en estos detalles ."
Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "The check in process. We are Indian citizens with US green cards. The Mexican consulate says this combo is good enough to enter Mexico, but apparently it wasn't good enough for the people checking us in! They took our passports and has us wait before immigration in a detainment room. THEY WERE WRONG"
Pros: "The ove"
Pros: "Seats not with big space but ok for a two hour trip. Crew attentive and very nice."
Cons: "Boarding. Riding on a bus before having access to the airplane is not comfortable. Can Aeromexico not afford what other airlines do? Food is just ok. A cold croissant is a poor example."
Cons: "Paying for luggage even with million Miler skyteam elite card. After paying for luggage then it didn’t come out on the belt and I had to get help to find it. Aeromexico should be avoided at all costs"
Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Pros: "The service was basically nonexistent to help fix. Sitting in tarmac at another unplanned airport - w no announcement from the calf! - I thought to call Aeromexico to have them help me reschedule. the agent didn’t understand the issue and couldn’t figure out why I was at an unplanned airport though I shared this w them multiple time. Amazing the flight system was not updated. Finally reaching my connection airport the counter help was terrible and in spite made me go through some special security to get my bag. I was treated like a criminal ... after arriving at the desk the new agent said it was no problem that my bag was checked thru. Exiting I was again given the once over... plenty more but Aeromexico, nah."

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."
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: "Me gusto que el vuelo salio a tiempo, tamien que los sobrecargos son muy amables y el abordaje aunque se hacen unas lineas enormes es un tanto veloz conciderando la muchedumbre, con el poco tiempo que tienen para ocupar la cabina en realidad hacen milagros, mil dracias"
Cons: "El bocadillo que ofrecen es muy pobre y en mi criterio o mejor no proveer nada o mejorar la calidad, el cafe, bueno; deja mucho que decear. Y bueno que decir de el espacio entre acientos, va uno con las rodillas en el respaldo de el vecino al frente pero bueno en fin no esta todo tan mal, AeroMexico Gracias por sus atenciones."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."
Pros: "Nothing Aeromexico personal was rude again"
Cons: "They said that we need to paid them the baggage’s and didn’t want to solve the situation. Be Aware if you book a trip with this two airline as you will finish paying twice the baggage fees. THEY STEAL YOUR MONEY!!"
Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"
Pros: "The fact that we were served a snack."
Cons: "It took way too long to xheck in."
Pros: "THE ATTENTION WAS EXCELENT . NOT DELAYES, EVETHING WAS GOOD LETICIA ESPINAL"
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "Late boatding"
Pros: "- The food as good. - They passed 3 times with drinks. Really nice. - You have your own screen with good content - Sweet / good take off and landing"
Cons: "- They turned on the heating (in early october)"
Cons: "they charge 250 dolars for my service dog, even though i had all my dods documentos. its ridiculus. i call customer service and they did not do nothing to help me."
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Cons: "We ended up on the same plane that we flew on from Cancun to Guadalajara. Major disappointment since this is about a 4 1/2 hour flight. Flight was full so we were unable to move our seats. It was a very uncomfortable flight. Also had challenges being able to use restroom while flight attendants were serving food or drinks. Had to wait until they were done and it took a while. Broken and uncomfortable seats. Lacked entertainment. Plane should be retired or have major upgrades. Otherwise, this plane should be used for short (less than 2 hours) flights."
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."
Pros: "Would not recommend."
Cons: "Poor service."
Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "We made each of our flights only by the will of the Aeromexico crew and they were extremely friendly."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, neither due to weather. It made transferring to our next flights feel like absolute chaos, where even the people were scrambling. The plane for the longer flight (SFO - CUN) was a visibly older plan and the seats felt like sitting on concrete. Also, it didn't notify me while booking that the seats in front of the exit row didn't recline (or I missed it somehow), and the seats didn't just not recline - they actually leaned forward a bit! The seats themselves were VERY tightly packed - likely the tightest I've ever been in."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."
Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "No turbulence"
Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"
Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Pros: "For being stuck in a small space for twelve hours, they made the experience about as good as you could ask."
Pros: "Excellent crew and friendly staff on flight."
Cons: "Due to re-evaluate cancellation priority given to guests the rebooking needs over guests needing to make requests about current flight."
Pros: "Arriving in SFO for Christmas"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "We left a few minutes early"
Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Pros: "Great movies and food"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Pet boarding was good"
Cons: "The crew The ride was horrible Delayed which I understand dude to weather circumstances Took forever to get off the plane So many children on one flight Couldn’t sleep the whole way Some kid has diarrhea and the entire plane Reaked and the has to cloaw the washroom."
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "Ease of entry."
Cons: "Personal space is very, very limited and food is terrible for an international flight."
Pros: "Friendly CREW"
Cons: "No upgrade london - Miami"
Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"
Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."
Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"
Cons: "They separated my bags, so I had to wait in Philadelphia for my bag to arrive on next flight 2 1/2 hours latter. Not happy after flying from Sydney."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Food was terrible and the seats tight"
Cons: "Food in general"
Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Pros: "seats and space were good"
Cons: "2 hour delay and freezing cold inside the plane"
Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"
Pros: "Quick and easy ride to Florida. Only 2 hour flight, smooth ride. Crew did their job and did it well."
Cons: "No entertainment options, I'm assuming because of short flight. No tvs."
Pros: "Crew was as communicative as possible about the delay process. Answered questions and suggested solutions for travelers who were affected by the delay."
Cons: "The maintenance crew delayed the flight by over an hour because they were not able to get a technician to the plane until an hour after the scheduled takeoff time."
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Pros: "Really great flight"
Cons: "The wait"
Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"
Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"
Pros: "Quick boarding, no delays."
Cons: "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."
Cons: "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."
Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"
Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"
Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"
Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"
Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"
Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Cons: "delayed in piecemeal by 6 hrs before move to another gate. than mechanical delay and then cancelled. Arrived at hotel after midnight without food or drink. Substitute flight was next day noon - original offer was for late afternoon flight! That flight had poor service. Attendant dawdled so there were no drinks served."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."
Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."
Cons: "Everything good"
Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Pros: "kept us advised on why we were delayed. somethings are out of your control abbr I understand that"
Cons: "one of the crew members was not so friendly."
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"
Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."
Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."
Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."
Pros: "Short direct flight"
Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Pros: "Same as Co's to Houston"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."
Pros: "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!"
Pros: "Left on time,luggage not missed and good landing"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"
Cons: "The tv and movie did not work"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "The flight attendants were almost never around. Beverages were only offered once and then one additional time for water only. The seats are beyond uncomfortable with a laughable amount of leg room. You needed to pay for the entertainment including the flight map! Nothing was provided (pillows, blankets) even though it was a red-eye, international flight. United has been the worst airline I have been on and I will stay away for future flights."
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Terrible company"
Pros: "You get what you pay for. The plane was new and the seat was confi as it can get for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "I got what I pay for not more not less."
Pros: "Confy seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "The late arrival and the extremely long line at customs"
Pros: "Plane was ok for a low cost"
Cons: "Boarding; always delays with Spirit."
Pros: "Good fast simple cheap service. All fast and on time. Helpful staff at the weigh-in, in San Jose, told us to move 2 pounds from the checked bag to our carry-on to avoid an overweight fee."
Cons: "that seat. Felt like a pipe under my butt, and my knees hitting the seat in front seemed to bother the guy, tho he didn't say anything. We all know we are "in the same boat.""
Pros: "Kaska was very helpful during my checkin. All the staff was on point and helpful. I was worried because all the bad comments. I guess if you know what to expect you will enjoy your travel with spirit."
Cons: "The superviser at that time was 0 comunicate , no people person aroll she is no good !!"
Pros: "The plane was nice and new, the big seat option was even better than I expected and worth it.The crew and the service they provided was top notch even if you had to pay for every little thing."
Cons: "Had to wait on runway for about 30min,not spirits fault."
Cons: "A guy came drugged from Costa Rica and they had to put him an IV line and didn't let the passengers get out of the plane due to "medical emergency" hence, connection flight: lost."
Pros: "Om time"
Cons: "Spirit sucks"
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"
Pros: "AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COST HORRIBLE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. EVERYONE ON THE PLANE AND THE AIRPORTS HAD NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "NOTHING! WILL NEVER GIVE THIS COMPANY MY MONEY AGAIN. SPEND THE MONEY AND FLY SOME OTHER AIRLINE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. RUDE EMPLOYEES. ACTUALLY SAW GATE ATTENDANT YELLING ON THE PA AT PEOPLE IN FORT LAUDERDALE."
Cons: "Only airline that charges $29 per passenger for tax in costa rica so that spirit can deceptively advertise at a lower price. Even a drink costs $3. I was curious if i had to swipe my credit card in order for the oxygen to work during emeregency. Both flights were delayed."
Cons: "We got our boarding passes in Costa Rica only to be told our flight was delayed two hours and once we got to Florida, our flight had been delayed another 13 hours. Once we finally thought we had a set time, it got delayed another half hour. We have been stranded trying to get home for over 24 hours. It has been terrible. I will never, ever fly spirit ever again."
Cons: "Spirit canceled my flight the day before it was supposed to leave and gave me no other options as to how to get to my destination. It almost ruined my vacation."
Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "It got me to FLL"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. The board at the gate said the flight was on time, but I didn't get on the plane before the scheduled departure time. The seats don't recline and we landed an hour after the scheduled arrival time, which left me less than an hour to get through customs, security and to my gate which was on the other side of the airport."
Cons: "international flight and they wouldnt allow any free carry on or checked bags - next time we'll buy more expensive tickets from an airline that doesn't charge for a carry on."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "^Invest in another price option, the small expense of flying another service will save you many headaches. Spirit hits you with hidden fees from departure, to check-in failures to making you pay for a carry-on?! They smugly suggest that their price is the baseline price without any add-ons or that they're giving you the option to opt out of things other airlines make you pay for, but nah. Spirit airlines has a special place in hell for duping consumers for so long"
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing good about this airline."
Cons: "There are lots of hidden fees we didn't know about and ended up spending a lot more money than intended. There was horrible communication between the airline and the airport and we were held on the plane for an additional 30 minutes after landing which caused us to miss our connecting flight. They said it was our fault for missing the connecting flight even though it was out of our control. We were stuck at the airport and the next available flight was not until the following day. We received no compensation for their mistakes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I will never take this airline again."
Cons: "The staff is incompetent, the process of checking in and boarding is completely inefficient. Worse traveling experience I have ever had."
Pros: "How they got us through the airport quickly, pulled people outo of line and moved them faster through the process according to the flight times."
Pros: "Nothing. It was a nightmare"
Pros: "Cheap fare, new plane."
Pros: "Easy check in and professional staff"
Cons: "Chronic lateness and nothing to make up for it. And all their planes are like meat lockers. I have no idea why it needs to be so cold."
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, our pilot had to continue past Fort Lauderdale and land our plane at Tampa. However, after landing we were forced to stay on the plane for 3 hours with very little updates on what was going to happen. Then their only solution was to bus us back to Fort Lauderdale which would take 6+ hours, causing us to miss our connecting flights. Therefore we were forced to rent a car (paid for out of pocket) and drive to another airport in order to make it to detroit"
Pros: "The staff in Orlando were beyond friendly and helpful. Jasmine (Supervisor) took great care of us."
Cons: "Our plane was an hour late in San Jose, then we sat on the runway for 45 minutes in Fort Lauderdale because Jet Blue was "blocking our gate". We were told twice that they were holding the plane (which was the last flight out because we missed our original flight by an hour and a half due to delays) for us. We went through security twice and they still didn't hold the plane. There's about 12 of us that didn't make it and was told that the plane was being held. We were forced to stand in the back of a long line to rebook. In that amount of time ( which was over 2 hours) in line and online booking were being made for our same flight.They WOULDN'T accommodate us with a hotel even after we stood in line for another 2 hours just so they could tell us that if we wanted to fly to Dallas it wouldn't be till Tuesday. By this time shuttles werent even running for the number they gave us for a discount on a hotel. The supervisor, GREG HALEY came over and covered his lanyard id with his hand the whole time he spoke with us. We asked for his name and he just said Greg and tried to walk away. We asked him for his last name and he was hesitant but told us it was Haley. We asked his supervisor's name and he scoffed and told us that he didnt have to give us that information, then walked away. We tried to sleep for 3hours on the freezing airport floor to catch a 8am flight to Houston so I could drive my boyfriend all the way to Dallas to pick up his truck and both of us drive back to Houston. Luckily our connecting flight to Houston was in Orlando for 4 hours so it gave me enough time to jump on a standby flight to Dallas Fort Worth out of Orlando in just under an hour. Worst airline and Supervisor (GREG HALEY-OUT OF FORT LAUDERDALE) I have EVER dealt with in ANY company."
Pros: "They got our bags onto our connecting flight even though it was only 20 minutes between landing and takeoff."
Cons: "We had to pay the airport taxes separately and unexpectedly to leave Costa Rica. I know that Spirit wants to save us costs by not charging us for things we don't need but that cost isn't optional so it's just deceitful to not include it. The baggage check at the airport is also only open at a certain time so we had to wait an hour and a half in the baggage check line to wait for it to open and THEN it turns out we were accidentally in the express members line (which was unlabeled) and the spirit employees made us get to the back of the regular line which was huge at that point (note we were the first people at the counter before that happened. AN HOUR AND A HALF IN LINE before it opened, another HALF HOUR to get through the line when we had to get in back. THERE IS NO FOOD BEFORE THE SECURITY CHECK. When I was reserving/buying my seats the website gliched so I had to refresh and all the prices doubled!!!!! Note this is in a five minute window."
Cons: "Bad completely service"
Pros: "Satisfied with with everything but two things"
Cons: "Had to pay extra taxes $29 in San Jose before I could get my boarding pass. It was a little warm in the plane"
Cons: "too much time to setup the flight, pay the ticket then pay the seats then pay for bags... in the website or it will be more expensive if you go to the counter... after all of this I prefer to fly any other airline"
Pros: "That I made it alive"
Cons: "Everything! Will never fly this airline ever again and will tell everyone I know what a horrifying experience it was...not worth it!"
Cons: "Lied about reason they weren't flying out, flight delayed 12 hours, check in took forever"
Pros: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"
Pros: "Spirits bare fare was a real pain during boarding. I was aware and prepared for the baggage and check in fees but the airport taxes in San Jose took me by surprise. We had to wait in line for over 2 hours to pay the fees before being allowed to check in. The flight was further delayed making the process even more painful as we had two young kids."
Cons: "Airport taxes not being included and lack of warning till we got to the airport."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Entreteimen we didn't have any? ???"
Cons: "The Costa Rican airport tax was not included in the airline ticket price so we had to spend more than an hour (!) in San Jose airport to pay the tax (whereas other airline companies include thia tax in their ticket price). Everything costs extra in Spirit/ In short, terrible experience."
Cons: "Hidden fees. Hidden taxes... Just crappy! Not cost saving at all!"
Cons: "Escribo esto en español para poder expresar mejor mi indignación ante el servicio tan mediocre que recibimos. Después de que el vuelo se atrasara más de 4 horas, nunca logré entender porque fue que nos atrasamos. Nos decían que íbamos a hacer una cosa y hacían otra. Pasamos de ilusiones y luego desilusiones durante horas. Amo viajar y nunca en mi vida me había sentido tan estresado como viajando con Spirit Airlines. No solo fue el atraso del vuelo, sino que también salíamos a las 12:45pm de San José, hora a la que usualmente creo que todos almorzamos, y no se les ocurrió darnos de comer sino hasta las 6:00pm (hora de Costa Rica) y yo no se si según ellos por darnos una latita de Pringles y un vaso de Coca Cola ya se nos iba a olvidar el terrible atraso que tuvimos. Cuando llegué al aeropuerto de Miami noté que habían roto una rueda de mi maleta y se lo dije a una empleada de Spirit Arilines que no sabía que hacer así que recurrió a otra y lo que me dijeron fue que eso no era problema de ellas porque probablemente había sucedido en Costa Rica y luego se fueron. Ahora mismo estaba tratando de hacer el Check In para mi vuelo de regreso y nunca había sido tan complicado hacer un Check In, ni siquiera entiendo porque no puedo hacerlo. Entro a la pagina de preguntas y soporte al cliente de Spirit Airlines y para responder a la pregunta de COMO hacerlo, lo único que saben decir son los beneficios que tiene, beneficios a los cuales me ENCANTARÍA tener si tan solo en su pagina dijeran COMO se hace. He pagado casi $100 en equipaje solo porque nunca nadie me dijo que si lo pagaba como un mes antes iba a salir más barato, que por cierto su pagina de internet es de lo PEOR que he visto, porque después de pagar mi maleta para ir de regreso, ni siquiera me decía si se había cargado bien a mi tarjeta o me daban una factura, simplemente volví al sitio para administrar mi viaje y ahora solo estoy rezando para que cuando llegue al aeropuerto en serio el pago se haya realizado correctamente. En fin, voy a tener que seguir viajando muy seguido a los Estados Unidos desde Costa Rica y puedo jurarles que NUNCA voy a volver a viajar con Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "Richard, our steward, was the only reason the flight ever made it out of the country. Without him I would have been stranded in Costa Rica for another night."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in a hot plane for 5 hours after an aborted take off due to brake malfunction. They offered no food, no compensation, no protection, and instead of booking me another connecting flight they forced me to take a van they rented from fort lauderdale to my final destination, orlando."
Pros: "It landed"
Cons: "Seats are jammed in, nickel and dime you to death"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled so I had to reschedule my trip and the airline refused to help."
