Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Pros: "On a quick 40 minute flight they still managed to serve coffee, water and snacks."
Pros: "Crew nailed it. Came by not just for food and drinks but also frequently enough to collect trash/plates/empty cups."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "It was FREEZING throughout the entire flight. Freezing. No blankets. Missed having screen in seat but was able to start a movie on my phone so it was fine."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I ordered two seats to accommodate my rate. I was moved after I checked in to another seat without notice. It was embarrassing to move after I was seated early and arrive at a set that I didn't fit in."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and professional"
Cons: "The flight delay was a pain"
Pros: "The crew was so nice and funny!"
Cons: "The food could be better, but I understand ultimately what it is: mass produced. The pretzel bread is good. The chocolate chip cookie is great. The ice cream is great. The lemon and something cheesecake dessert was too lemony for me, but my mother would have loved it."
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Ticket printed out incorrect gate information"
Cons: "No WiFi. Little service."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crew was great, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "The fact that airlines are trying to charge for every little add-on is pretty annoying. 2 dollars for headphones? Don't even get me started with their snack boxes..."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Wonderful friendly crew. Comfy seat. Very pleasantly impressed with the comfort on a CRJ900 -- windows are large and closer to eye level, standing room is enough."
Pros: "Crew was nice and took care of us. We respected them and got it right back."
Cons: "It was no fault of the airline, but we got his with some weather delays which dampered our very long trip. Also, the leg room on the flight from Detroit to PDX was very small, we got lucky that we only had two people for our row of three seats. Let us stretch some."
Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."

Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "On time, free upgrade."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Dinner quality was good Crew was very professional"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Pros: "Like the airplane - Boeing 757. More comfortable than the 737."
Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."
Pros: "Efficient crew. Good movie choices. Clean bath rooms. However - I wish every airline in each bathroom had a notice on the toilet to PLEASE LOWER THE SEAT AND COVER! I prefer using the bathroom after another woman has used it!"
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"
Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Minimum everything"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Pros: "Every flight was efficiently set for boarding. Flights arrived a little early both times. Great on-board crew!"
Pros: "Flight crew took very good care of us. They served several snacks, meals and free wine on the 8+ hours flight from Prague to NYC. The hot towels to freshen up before meals was a nice touch!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
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: "Short eas6 trio"
Cons: "Lack if parking at airport"
Cons: "It was late arriving to greensboro"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and apologetic."
Cons: "Having two planes with mechanical trouble. Putting our luggage on the wrong plane. It is 1:50 am as I write this. I should be home in bed."
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "Great service for a short commute trip."
Cons: "Seat back entertainment was outdated and non functional. Drinks were served but not a pretzel or peanut to be seen unless you were in first class."
Pros: "Delta changed me to another flight without charge and the rep was very accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Multiple delays, from 8:15 to 8:49 to 9:05 to 9:39 to 10:12 to 10:19 to 10:25. I am not joking. Honestly, if the delay is due to 'maintenance' for an incoming plane that has not left its originating destination, why quote any time at all? The check in rep did provide an announcement at 8:15 that although the time of departure had moved to 9:05 , he did not see how that was possible since our plane was on the ground in Richmond undergoing maintenance. I was in LGA. When I heard that, I changed to another flight, so the outcome was not as bad as it could have been. I am aware of these other times since my email is packed with Delta's notifications, which I welcome usually."
Pros: "Food and choice of entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
Pros: "It's hard for me to write this review as the first 4.5 hour leg was incredible. Staff was very friendly and did a great job. Otherwise, the equipment was old and dated. Good thing it's only an hour-ish flight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard seats designed for humans less than 3 years old."
Pros: "Service was great"
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"
Pros: "The food is terrible no choices you can tell nothing is fresh they did not even have enough white wine"
Pros: "Great flight. The only uncertainty with this level of tickets, is not knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. In general, it is worth what you pay for."
Cons: "Knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. They can save the food!!! It's owfull."
Pros: "The plane works"
Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "This is Aeroméxico’s B-team from Mexico City to LAX"
Cons: "Personnel at counter could have been more effective and friendlier and accommodating but some how it seems customers friendlier services never been or will be a priority."
Pros: "The ove"
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: "I liked the food, the drinks, the Atencion’s crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the long wait to drop off my suitcase"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my daughter and I couldn't check in online and or seats were given away. We were sent to a hotel far from the airport."
Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."
Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat became very uncomfortable for my back and bum. Shouldn’t it be more comfortable in Classe Premier? Also just a sandwich for meal."
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "People in the airline need to be a bit more frienly"
Pros: "Amazing service, clean plane, complimentary food and drink included is a great perk. Too bad other airlines don't treat you this well! My first choice for all future flights to Mexico. Gracias AeroMexico."
Cons: "Was late 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything was great. The airplane was comfortable and clean."
Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Part of my poor experience was because of lack of knowledge of the staff. 1) We had a round trip from Houston. Our destination was Quito Ecuador with a connection in Mexico city. In Houston we were told that we were suppose to pick up our luggage in Mexico City and take it through immigration (we were told that this was very important) We waited for our luggage but in never arrived. After asking around at the airport we were told that the rule had changed and we did not need to pick up our luggage 2) The planes were old with no entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service!"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was great."
Cons: "The boarding was ridiculous. They never posted what gate the flight went out of. If it wasn't for Kayak we would not have known when to go. The flight was delayed but they never did update that information. It did not leave on time like the board said. They just all of a sudden said they were boarding the flight."
Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."
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: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Pros: "Good space between seats and the free alcoholic beverages. Food was acceptable (ham & cheese sandwich)."
Cons: "Having to go through security again when we have not left the secure portion of the airport. After all we had just gone through security in Ixtapa."
Cons: "Having to check in my carry-on because the plane is full. Lost a meeting because I had to wait for my bag at my final destination."
Pros: "On time flight, extremely efficient crew, comfortable seats, entertainment, meal, drinks."
Cons: "Boarding, paid for upgrade but was second to last zone to board, leaving me to scramble for Room for carry on. Flight crew was friendly enough except for one, she seemed put off by everyone on board, but especially me. Lol. Basically threw the tray of food on my table and on the backside, pulled tray before I was done. She hopefully was having a bad day."
Pros: "The fact that we were served a snack."
Cons: "It took way too long to xheck in."
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: "They had a problem with media system, so this way we cannot see any movies"
Cons: "the second part departed late ...."
Pros: "Got home safe"

Cons: "My seat was moved even though i had paid extra for my seat."
Cons: "Food, entertainment and space"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "It took an hour to Check-in in Orlando, seems like every passenger took 15 to 20 minutes to get checked in! Slightly faster in Mexico City but still took 40 minutes. Can't understand with all this modern technology why checking in is still so slow......"
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."
Pros: "I missed my flight but when I got to the gate, the staff was really helpful. They got me a seat on the next flight and gave me a voucher for food during the wait. I will definitely be flying Aeromexico again!"
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to bring oversized wooden bowl from Mexico City to LAX as carry-on and was forced to wrap it and check it in (extra $20), but was permitted to take it as carry-on on AeroMexico flight from Guatemala City to Mexico City. So there was definitely bad communication and inconsistency. Otherwise, OK flight."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "I lost it!"
Cons: "I am still waiting for my connection in Mexico City as the flight was 2 hours delayed in NY. I am missing a big family event due to inneficiency."

Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"
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: "That the flight was a very reasonable price"
Cons: "The flight was packed there was no separation of people for the convir 19 the seats were very close together my knees were touching the seat in front of me"
Cons: "5 hour maintenance delay due to non-responding maintenance crew. Deplaned. Then re-boarded. Then additional delay due to broken tug. Ridiculous."
Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
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."
Pros: "American really exceeded our expectations on both overseas flights on this trip. Good food, nice service, plenty of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I was traveling with my mother who is handicap. The staff did so much to really help her. Although, the staff did everything and I mean everything to help us. TSA was an issue. Plus there was an language barrier."
Cons: "The assistant that they gave us was communicating with the TSA officer in Spanish who did not speak any English. The problem was she was over 75 and she does not have to remove her shoes. Instead of explaining to her what was going on she just took her shoes, which made my mother upset mad."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "Free movies lagged and got stuck on wifi. Gave up watching one."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight"
Cons: "Delayed 43 minutes"
Pros: "We left a few minutes early"
Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Pros: "Surprisingly enough leg room for me, even though im 6 foot 6in. Staff on plane were very very nice."
Cons: "In lax The women checking your ticket before you go upstairs to security was super rude. Theres one tiny bathroom in the entire AA terminal."
Cons: "Delayed, poor info, no snacks, not even water. Lady at gate was rude. And unpleasant. Nobody kept us informed correctly and when we asked we were treated unkindly. Horrible experience with AA. Will avoid"
Cons: "Were not there to rate but someone paid you an extra fare so you made double the money on one 2 seats! BRAVO"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault, but we had three hour delays due to weather in NYC, so I was in a foul mood."

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"
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"
Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."
Cons: "The food was cold and and had no taste."

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "If you're over 5'7 you gotta watch your head"
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: "Both my flights were slightly early (a plus for me, might not be for all) and I had no issues or complaints."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Everything! Arrived 5 hours latter than expected"
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."
Cons: "This flight was five hours late. there was an exchange of four planes before United could provide one that did not need maintenance. When it was time to board there was a last minute gate change to a different terminal. Surely United must have known of this hours in advance."
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: "We sat on the plane for 2 hours at the gate to find out that the dispatcher did not have paperwork for the flight and hence we could not leave yet. We were not told of all of the issues and were kept sitting on the plane idle for 2 hours before we had to deplane and wait even more."
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"
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."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
Cons: "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"
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: "I can't review this flight because the itinerary change and last minute cancellation of United Airlines' flights."
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"
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."
Cons: "Felt very crowded - narrow seats."
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."
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."
Cons: "We where delayed for two hours or so, if you asked upon arrving during what should have been boarding you got a curt remark no information. There way no anouncement about a delay just one that the crew arrived, nothing about why we where delayed or estimation of time when we would board. Other delayed fights where getting information over the loud speaker. The attendants left the area came back when we could board and hurded us on the plane. Not a friendly face or smile. Everyone was tired, a little civility would have gone a long way"
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"
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "So we arrived at the desk after a 7hr international flight ready for the final 1hr leg - only to be confronted with "flight overbooked" looking for 9 volunteers - how can you over book a 40 seat flight by 9 ???? So we had an anxious wait wondering if we'd be dumped from the flight - we weren't but it wasn't enjoyable waiting for the flight and our meeting with our grand kids."
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in landing. I paid to watch tv which should be free on international flights... It use to be and they kept making PA announcements the entire flight. It was very very disruptive."
Pros: "Finally got us on the plane after a 6 hour delay. They decided to "update" the computer software on the plane after they had us all on there. Took about 90 minutes. Very displeased, will do my best avoid United in the future"
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: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"
Pros: "On time boarding"
Cons: "Seat space"
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."
Pros: "Great crew, also informed of any delay we presented or turbulence."
Cons: "The space."
Pros: "Asian chicken with slaw entree as good."
Cons: "Hummus and crackers snack for $4 was not good. UA move to pay for food only is disappointing; information about the change not detailed in ticket information, so it came as a surprise. Switch to pay per view TV is pretty outrageous, especially when priced at cost of HDTV ($6). Unless you are using 42" L+W+D suitcases, the changes in luggage policy now force you to pay $25 per suitcase on an international flight. What, they expect you to travel abroad with only 2-3 changes of clothes? The price of the ticket was reasonable ($500), but you end up adding another $100 in luggage and food costs per person."
Pros: "Flight was On time, departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crew gathered at the back of the plane and talked too much and too loud"
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.""
Cons: "I could have used a refill on my coffee"
Cons: "Delayed us several hours. Missed our connection home. Ruined our anniversary trip. Had to drive 5 hours in the middle of the night in order to make it to work this morning. I hate your airline and will never fly it again."
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
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."
Pros: "Om time"
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"
Cons: "I will never fly with Spirit again. Do not be fooled by the cheap prices of the tickets as they do not include baggage fees (an extra $240 for two people to check bags round trip.) Nothing is complimentary (not even soft drinks or a bag or pretzels,) drinks are super expensive, there is no hanging options for your suits/dress (so don't bother to dry clean before you come) and there is no entertainment options at all. Also, when picking your seats do not pick the seats with only two thinking that you will have a window seat next to your travel partner- instead the third seat by the window is where you will be sitting with the flight attendant. Overall, it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Cons: "If I could give them negative stars, they would get all negative stars. The international flight from San Jose, CR was cancelled. They airline didn't rebook is on other flights or give us vouchers for hotel accommodation or for food. I'm baffled how an airline is allowed to operated with such bad customer service. They need to be shut down ASAP!!!"
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: "Awful. Late, fueled plane while people were on board, and kept on delaying flight."
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: "Nothing. It was a nightmare"
Pros: "Cheap fare, new plane."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled due to "crew maintenance". I had to re-book on Jet Blue and pay much more and I had to stay in a Hotel for an additional night."
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: "the spirit team was not welcoming. they did not offer any apologies or updates on our late flight. They were rude and disinterested during the flight. The plane was mediocre and there was no entertainment. I will avoid spirit airline at all costs going forward."
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: "Customer Service team was great"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks or drinks, not even water! The seats don't recline Over $180 in baggage fees for a round trip flight!"
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced in my life. Horrible experience. Nothing cheap about it. Charges for everything. Never again"
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"
Cons: "Wasn't aware of the carry on fee or charge for food (including water). The airline also marked my ticket as one that required extra checkpoint at security thus causing me to miss my connection."
Pros: "Good service from fliht attendants and good snacks"
Cons: "flight was delayed by one hour. THere was a dark barking the last two hours of the flight right next to me. Our luggage was taken off the plane and sent to me 3 days later."
Pros: "Literally nothing. I mean, I guess the cold hard tile floors were shiny to sit in."
Cons: "They lied about volcanic ash to delay their flight because their crew was not ready to fly (they didn't have enough down time) meanwhile EVERY OTHER FLIGHT FLEW OUT. They would not give us a new flight. They would not give us food vouchers. No car rentals. No housing. We were stranded in a foreign country for 12 extra hours with NOTHING. On top of that they were rude, unhelpful, and after the 12 hour delay, DELAYED THE FLIGHT AGAIN. They would not help with anything. They simply blamed the "ash" that apparently didn't affect any other airline but Spirit. Never ever using them again."
Pros: "The planes arrived... eventually."
Cons: "Packed insanely tight Not even a free cup of water--nothing! 4 hour delay due to mechanical failure"
Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "No free water/soda"
Pros: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"
Cons: "You would think that when you pay extra for the bigger seats that they would recline. The seats in the first row reclined not the second row... Same price for the upgrade. That should be disclosed or the seats should be lower."
Pros: "It was cheap and it didn't get canceled, the seats were comfy and I had leg room."
Cons: "I actually enjoyed this flight"
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Entreteimen we didn't have any? ???"
Cons: "You pay too much for your bags! Then still had to pay a tax to leave the country because spirit was the only airline that didn't already include it! Upon returning to the US our flight was delayed for an hour. They only came on the loud speaker once about 10 minutes after boarding saying it would be 15 more minutes. There was no communication. It was overheard that their boarding records did not match up with immigration. Overall it was a horrible experience and I will not be returning to spirit!"
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: "the staff was kind ON the plane."
Cons: "the plane was cold. The staff in San Jose, would not make announcements, inform passengers what was happening. and kept hidden that a hotel was available to those whose flight was cancelled. in general most customers i spoke with said they would not fly your airline again. and staff at your hotels said flight cancellations happen all the time with spirit. low fares are cool, but someone is absorbing these costs in your business model. i wonder if you will survive as an airline beyond 1-2 years if this is your manner of performance. we are willing to fly in discomfort, pack small bags, etc, but to treat us like pigs, is not a good thing for anyone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled so I had to reschedule my trip and the airline refused to help."
