Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

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: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Check in process was super slow. It took an hour and a half. Check in process needs to be made more efficient. Also, plane took off an hour and 20 minutes later than originally planned. Therefore, we landed an hour later than expected."

Pros: "I was very comfortable."
Cons: "Not the fault of Aeromexico but making the connection in Me4xico City was difficult. Airport employees kept sending me in different incorrect directions."

Cons: "Check in. A nightmare Boarding. A nightmare Waiting 1 hour for the bags to arrive. 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"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Good service."

Pros: "Everything was good, the food, the comfort, the entertainment, the service"

Pros: "Nice Crew. Seats ok."
Cons: "Nothing to add"

Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The ove"

Pros: "Enjoyable flight with great crew!!!"

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."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 1am to 9am, then again from 9am to 11.30am. Finally got to Mexico City 12 hrs after we were supposed to. No compensation or apology was provided. Only way we found out about new flight times was through email. Airport did not make announcements."

Cons: "No Wi-Fi"

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: "I would like to have direct flight to Mexico city, it will be a plus."

Cons: "Again flight was delayed"

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "They were understaffed and because of this I lost my flight and still had to pay 30$ for my luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Incompetence"

Cons: "On boarding the plane the crew didn’t have control of the people and when zone 2 started to board zone 3 started to cut the zone 2"

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"

Pros: "Fast boarding, decent seat space (AM+), fast, courteous staff"
Cons: "I paid $14USD for internet assuming the USB charging ports worked, only to find that they did not, getting only 15 minutes of my 6 hour flight!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service!"

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: "The food was good"
Cons: "The fact that when the Mexico City security detained my bag Aeromexico told me the bag was never loaded on the plane in YYZ. They gave me an email address and said good luck. My bag was then shipped to Bogota I went to the airport and asked fir it back only to be told it was sent back to YYZ. I was supposed to be given $100 -never happens. Now I'm home and I have no idea where my bag is."

Cons: "The service from the air hostess"

Pros: "service"
Cons: "food and seats not comfortable."

Pros: "Again, the seating is more than adequate. I discovered a person who couldn't read her ticket stub correctly had taken my seat, but instead of insisting that she move, I asked if I could have an emergency exit row seat and was told "Yes," I could. I had to whole row to myself. Those seats, while as comfortable as the rest, made the screen mounted on the back of the seat ahead of me a little hard to see because of the greater than usual distance between the seats. But there certainly was a lot of legroom!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was an aspect not totally in Aeromexico's control - the disembarkation system and the ugly process of Mexican immigration. The plane was left parked on the tarmac somewhere in nowhere'sville, making a trip to the terminal by bus necessary. The bus waited and waited and waited for a wheelchair to arrive from the main terminal to allow two elderly passengers to be removed from the plane. All in all that process took more than a half-hour (making the two-hour connection time more anxiety producing). Then the bus sat outside the terminal for another 10 minutes with no explanation being provided to the passengers worried about making their connection. To top it off, once the bus doors opened the passengers were ushered into a large hall filled with hundreds of passengers all having to get through Mexican immigration - during lunch hour or something, for there were only six officials actually asking questions and several empty inquiry windows that could have been operational. I finally got to an immigration clerk just 15 minutes before my connecting flight was to take off - breezed through the interview and got the passport stamped, and then had to run to dump the luggage onto another conveyor belt leading I hoped to the connecting flight. An Aeromexico staff person asked me "Seattle?" and when I answered "YES!" was ushered to a waiting electric golf cart that whisked me close to the ramp to Gate 57. Without that additional help I'd never had made the flight. Mexico City is NOT a place to try to do a plane connection in less than 3 hours!"

Pros: "The seats were nice, the plane had tv's, and it looked high end for an economy ticket"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "my luggage had items stolen from it and i have not gotten any response from the airline regarding my missing items! im outraged"

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."

Pros: "It was great! Great people,great food, entertainment,blankets, pillows,music, great view in the eye."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "the plane on the return flight was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "our departure flight was delayed for over 1 hours and our return flight was delayed for over 2 hours. They blamed the weather for the delay on the return flight but all other flights were departing on time or with only a 30 min delay. Aeromexico flights were the only ones being delayed for long periods of time."

Pros: "Airline gave me a good seat assignment"

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: "I was so happy that Aeromexico and Copa worked together to check my bags all the way to my destination even though I was flying 2 different airlines. It made it so wonderful since I was flying alone with my four kids. Everything went smoothly with the tickets and check in. Everyone was very helpful."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly we got through customs quickly in Mexico. I like the fact that they gave us food and drink."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."

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: "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."

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: "Everything about Premier was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment screen in first class seat didn't work."

Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

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."

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."

Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"

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: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."

Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "Delays,"

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."

Cons: "inadequate ventilation"

Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."

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"

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."

Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

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: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."

Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"

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: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."

Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."

Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."

Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."

Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."

Pros: "crew was good"

Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "I like the seat is comfortable, I have enough legroom everywhere (by every seats)."
Cons: "I didn't like the snack what I get."

Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"

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: "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: "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: "Everyone was nice, boarding was smooth, and we even landed early. Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the trip really. Crew did a fine job."

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 boarding and waiting area at Houston's airport is very nice"
Cons: "I believe United is now giving advance grumpyness training to thier flight attendants. I have rarely meet anyone in a service position vibrate such intense waves of superiority and condensention out side of the perhpas the DMV."

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: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"

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"

Pros: "Rhe crew again"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Surprising amount of legroom, comfortable, the plane wasn't packed with people"
Cons: "Small plane"

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: "What entertainment? Ridiculous to have to pay for it"

Pros: "Sleeping"
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: "Nice"

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: "I am happy the pilot caught the faulty engine before we were in the air. That probably wouldn't have ended well. I like the snack choices."
Cons: "We were late boarding. Once on the plane flight was delayed longer due to a maintenance issue. Once on the run way, pilot said one of the engines would not start and we would have to turn around."

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: "For yall to have emotions"

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: "Timeliness"
Cons: "No beverage or snack."

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: "They offered us a $50 E-certificate for a future flight to compensate us for the long delay."
Cons: "It made a long day even longer, and, even though they didn't have anything positive to tell us, I would've liked more frequent updates from the flight crew about how long we had to wait."

Pros: "The flight was fine and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Arriving home four hours late due to maintenance issues after a long day doesn't inspire trust in the airline."

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."

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"

Cons: "really, spirit is the qorst"

Pros: "Liked the rate and the fact that we got to New Orleans a few minutes early."
Cons: "I did not like the lift off. It probably was not the pilots fault but it felt like they were fighting over the controls. Plane went left to right then left to right again on the take off. This was very scary for quit a few passengers."

Cons: "Food was not provided, if some snacks add it will be good"

Pros: "It was comfortable and peaceful."

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Expensive bag check fees of $52 across the board, even though signs listed a variable scale based on weight that would have been cheaper. Apparently that's only available if you check in early and weigh your bags yourself or something, IDK..."

Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Entreteimen we didn't have any? ???"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Luggage cost put complete ticket price higher than competitors in which first luggage is free. Also competitor includes complimentary snack and/or beverage"

Cons: "Loud noise before take off"

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: "Timely landing"
Cons: "Late take off but made up in the air."

Pros: "Promptness"
Cons: "Waiting for my bags"

Pros: "Boarding was well-organized, nothing complicated."
Cons: "The kiosks weren't working for Spirit at DFW, so I wasn't able to print my boarding pass on my own; they had a line backed up quite a bit. However, their agents worked really quick to get everyone taken care of. It's a good idea to get there early!"

Pros: "Accommodations"
Cons: "Rush between flights, delay in getting my bags, one bag missing."

Pros: "Refreshingly simple and new Airbusses that are roomy."

Cons: "2 hrs delay and poor food selection"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel it."

Pros: "No delays, a little more legroom than the first. At end any was better at delivering the jokes, so I was slightly less miserable."

Pros: "Affordable price"
Cons: "Chairs do not recline"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Typical Spirit delays. This was a newer plane which was nice but not cleaned..floors dirty and trash in pockets"
