Airline reviews

Pros: "quick easy flight"

Cons: "Aero mexico which is who delta services really messed our tickets up and flying both to Cancun and from Cancun both flights were screwed up and Delta had to bail out aero mexico both times thanks to delta airlines our tripped was salvaged"

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: "Not much"
Cons: "Late bumby ride"

Cons: "Long wait for de-Icing. Got on and off the plane 3 times. First wait was 1 hour, but plane aborted takeoff. Second plane waited at gate with all aboard for 2-1/2 hours and never got slot and de-planed. Third plane waited 1-1/2 hours for de-Icing and finally we were headed home. Arrived 8.5 hours after schedule."

Pros: "I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect."

Cons: "Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, but staff helped fix this after I talked with them."

Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."

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

Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."

Pros: "Ground team was amazing--efficient, pleasant, rapid turnaround"
Cons: "Incoming plane was 1.5h late and there was no meaningful explanation (saying that the plane was late coming in bc it was late getting to its prior stop isn't really an explanation)"

Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."

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: "Pilot kept us updated on the weather siuation."
Cons: "I wish the Wi-Fi was free. It's very expensive. Beverage service on those carts is slow. It's time to update both those items."

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."

Cons: "I purchased my tickets about 5 weeks before my trip and got to the airport 2 hrs prior. I recieved no seat assignment, just a boarding pass that said request seat. So I requested a seat. Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."

Pros: "Comfortable as plane was half empty."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all."

Pros: "these aircraft are confyy...the staff super helpful to be honest i would rather fly with aero mexico than one of the u.s.a airlines for ex: american airlines ect.... and their selction for entertaiment was huge and up to date with all the latest stuff..."

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 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."

Cons: "No wifi, no movies, no power outlets. The budget airline I flew to Mexico (Volaris) was nicer."

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."

Cons: "The ground crew in CDMX is inept."

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"

Cons: "The heater on the plane were to high"

Pros: "Crew on board was very nice. Crew on land was horrible."
Cons: "Food is terrible. Lines in Argentina and Mexico City are insane. I will avoid Aeromexico in the future as it was not worth it The planes were old. People on board nice. But the land crew was very rude. They changed our seats at the last minute, even after booking this trip months ago and paying extra for the seats we wanted. so we did not travel together from Mexico City to chicago and they were blaming it on a change of aircraft which was a 777 identical to the original one."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice from the moment we walk in the airplane."
Cons: "The food needs to be changed. They have been serving the same menu for years. The breakfast menu is too heavy for the morning."

Pros: "Inside the plane the food (COLD SANDWICH) has a horrible and monotonous taste . Outside the plane the service is poor. You meet aggressive people without any clue of courtesy. I saw disable passenger without any attendance when wheelchair was requested.They don't have any idea that you are part of a business industry with many competitors. I will never recommend in my community to use your services. You are the worse of the third world."
Cons: "I experience an incident that affected emotionally my family. One hour after depart from Mexico City, the fly attendance announce that we need to land in Guadalajara for safety/security reason. You removed a youth passenger without any strong and fair reason, because he was unlucky this day: He was accommodated together with 2 members of a middle east family that was logically to be filled by the 3. he touch friendly the kid near him and his father that was in different place??? react negative against this normal gesture of the youth passenger. Why you didn't put the entire family together from the beginning?"

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: "Checking in was fast and easy"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Good legroom, nice to get free snack"

Pros: "Very quick response time at the airport. Web check in worked very fast on my mobile. flight was on schedule."
Cons: "No bridge, so we have to use bus upon arriving to CDMEX airport."

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: "No flexible headrest on seats No entertainment screens"

Cons: "I was seated on an exit row and could not recline. This was not at all comfortable."

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

Pros: "Charged me for extra bag and then lost both bags"

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Aeromexico lost my bag. They refused to talk to me on the phone about it. They forced me to send an email and never responded after the immediate auto-response. I spent my entire trip worrying about my bag, without my cloths and gifts."

Pros: "The man who eventually offered to change seats with me"
Cons: "The stewardess screaming at me. Their overall lack of understanding that I suffer from a severe fear of flying and amclaustrophobic on planes. Seated me in a middle seat in emergency row, which completely freaked me out and then moved me to a seat with solid metal armrests that my larger body could not fit into, then yelled at me and embarrassed me in front of dozens of passengers until a man offered to change seats with me. Completely unprofessional staff and terrible experience. Not only did I arrive to TJ 5 hrs late, I was traumatized."

Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Wifi"

Pros: "Always a friendly crew"
Cons: "A slight delay that they could have been quicker to alert us of"

Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."
Cons: "The pilot"

Pros: "The flight attendant say right in front of us, she was very personable, and you could tell that she cared for the safety of each passenger. She made sure everyone followed the flying protocol, but she was nice about her delivery in making sure everyone followed the rules."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not necessarily the airlines fault and in hindsight it was likely for the safety of the passenger but it was challenging making it on time to out event."

Cons: "Delayed as usual."

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

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: "The boarding was fast."

Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."

Pros: "Pleasant flight crew!!"

Cons: "there was a delay and no one was saying why? the flight was over an hour late"

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."

Cons: "After take off I could no longer hear anything through the headphone jacks. Staff was VERY rude & unpleasant the whole trip. Feed half of my family, and left the other half of us to sit there until there was only one choice left, Then completely forgot to serve me anything."

Pros: "Getting off the plane after 3+ hour flight and 45 mins taxi and waiting for gate"
Cons: "Bought our tickets months ago, 2 travelers , myself and wife. Couldn't seat together. Our baggage ( Small backpack and a hardside roller we bought cause it would fit under the seat. Guess what I know they changed the size of the underseat bag . We had it checked going to PHX ,no issue on the way back $50. I'm done with American Airlines and Kayak."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food Seats so tight"

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: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"

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

Pros: "They alerted me to problems with our flight and we switched to an earlier flight. No problems with new flight. Good service."

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."

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

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."

Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."

Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"

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: "New plane; great entertainment; very friendly and helpful on-board staff."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the American bag drop line at Heathrow was long and slow. I understand these things happen but all could have been eased with a bit more information being given and more staff on-hand to provide direction."

Pros: "food could be better"

Cons: "Our flight from Washington DC to Lima had a connection flight in Colombia. Since the flight from DC was delayed for more than an hour we ended up missing our connection flight from Colombia to Lima, Peru. And from there everything went downhill. In Colombia they crew didn't know what was going to happen to us. After waiting over 3 hours they finally told us the found an early morning flight for us and that they were going to accommodate us in an hotel in Colombia for to spend the night. we waited until midnight for the transportation to the hotel and there were another 100 persons waiting to get transportation to the hotel as well and to check inn in the hotel. disaster."

Pros: "The TV and Movie options were good. The food was good too. The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was misplaced, but I got it delivered to my house by Wednesday evening."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"

Pros: "crew was good"

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"

Cons: "The changes of time and gates were disturbing."

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: "Smooth check in was quick as well as boarding"
Cons: "Delayed because 1st attendant was not available"

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"

Cons: "I'm carrying my luggages from terminal 5 to terminal 2 , I'm about to passed the screening to board to United airlines but the employee at the front stop me because I have 2 luggages and it may not be allowed, she told me to ask an employee about it and one employee told me to go to terminal 1 to drop off my lugggaes. So I went there and told one of the employee of United airlines that I just need to drop off my lugggaes and she saw the stickers on my bags and told to used the kiosk and print again a new tags because the one attached was already old, but the stickers attached printed pittsburgh, while I'm trying to print another one, a nice employee from ANA saw me and asked me if I need help, she told me I don't need to print another one , I just need to drop off the bags. She's so nice and helpful to assist me .No one told me about this in Manila so I don't need to experience the inconvenience in the first place."

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: "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: "THe layover was only 1 hour and it was impossible to go through customs, get my luggage and re-check it and get to my next flight. I was at the gate 5 minutes before the plane took off and they didn’t let me on. I was devastated that I missed it and had to wait for the next flight."

Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late getting to our gate despite arriving at Denver airport ahead of schedule"

Pros: "I was able to leave Burlington before the storm."
Cons: "When you travel the friendly skies, it is a cattle call. Travel is just not fun via any of the airlines. My experience was decent and that is all that I can say."

Pros: "Super easy n fast!"
Cons: "Newark airport"

Pros: "Samesam"

Cons: "No entertainment at all."

Cons: "Advertised great price that did not include luggage and changes were not permitted. Cancellation within 24 hours."

Cons: "Bottom seat cushion was caved in and if the for legs we flew on this trip, definitely the most uncomfortable. Dissapoined that to track your progress on the screen you had to pay for service. Really!! That's pretty darn nickel and diming the customer to death."

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!"

Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"

Pros: "Was on time and staff was great. You"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Wifi barely worked even after i paid"

Pros: "No entertainment unless you pay, but you can't turn the tv off, so it's playing bright ads in your face all night. Awesome."
Cons: "If you want to feel like you're riding the most cramped Greyhound bus, definitely ride with united."

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: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Nice"

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: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, even if they were dealing with travelers who were cranky about it being so late."
Cons: "Twelve hours before the flight and they already knew that the flight would be delayed due to the inbound plane being later. One flight earlier in the day caused a delay for the rest of the day. So, our flight was three hours late in boarding, putting us into the final destination at 2:15 AM. Not cool, especially when travelling with children."

Cons: "Broken Restrooms"

Cons: "The biggest problem I had was that the gate was changed and I wasn't notified. So I had to go from Concourse A to C, then back to A. Thankfully, I gave myself plenty of time and everyone was helpful."

Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I shouldn't have had to pay to check a carry-on because the first flight was delayed."

Pros: "Quick-ish boarding"
Cons: "No food. No entertainment. No power. Garbage, lowest rung "bus in the sky" service"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Pros: "Short flight so no need for food or entertainment, but the roomy seats were amazing after a long day of flying"

Cons: "Same as above"

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: "We didn't have those annoying corrals of groups and we were called by our groups so it made the boarding VERY easy and civilized."
Cons: "I suggest on these surveys to have a Non-applicable section for food/entertainment as many of the flights don't offer these."

Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical problems, sat on aircraft to long before decision was made to change aircraft,multiple changes in gate which lead to long walks across airport. Should get some sort of refund for a lot of frustration and waiting"

Pros: "Bag drop only took an hour. No leadership cabin steward was a jerk. Try growing up"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "It's affordable"
Cons: "How I had to purchase 3 tickets 2-3 times just to get home. there's no reimbursement when the company messed up."

Pros: "."

Cons: "The fact that I had a restless baby sittting next to me....grabbing , bumping and dropping snack foods. Parents traveling with babies ought to accommodated to sections more appropriate."

Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"

Cons: "Everything with spirit was excellent. The problem was the Philadelphia baggage belt The belt kept breaking so it took them over an hour to figure out to use a different belt!"

Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was in a window seat next to a heavy person. Not extra arm room whatsoever."

Pros: "Have a nice and smooth ride."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Baggage costs. Hotel accommodations when we were stranded overnight."

Pros: "everything!"
Cons: "everything was great."

Pros: "The plane was roomy"
Cons: "The advance check-in had trouble, I was unable to chose a seat."

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Mysterious $100+ charge from a Canadian travel agent. No response when queried."

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: "I would love a free mini bag of chips or pretzels. Free soda? That couldn't possibly break the bank."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Our delay"

Pros: "Original price"
Cons: "Additional Fees"

Pros: "Cost, Effiency, and Friendliness"
Cons: "Seat was a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "Cheap to buy, expensive to fly."

Cons: "It got cancelled due to weather, even though a good number of flights going into the same airport didn't get cancelled."

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "Getting a refund was relatively easy"
Cons: "No one informed me of the cancellation"

Cons: "ridiculous pay $50,00 for hand bag"

Pros: "Ease of boarding and check in"
Cons: "Nothing was objectionable"

Cons: "I had to use the bathroom when I got off the plane. When I got to the baggage claim, my bag was no where to be found and no representative was available. I was having spirit paged, but no one ever came. Worse, I've called twice now and still no one has called me back."

Pros: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"

Cons: "Charges extra for luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat were uncomfortable and difficult to sleep in."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The fact that it gets cancelled everytime!"

Pros: "The leg room in first class"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I'm surprised they didn't charge you to go pee."

Pros: "Seat space"
Cons: "No services. Ricky tack for EVERYTHING. NO FRILLS. HIGH FEE TRAVRL"

Pros: "NA"

Cons: "The price for the bag is outstanding you cannot charge 55$for a travel bag come on is rip of .i understand the price of the tickets are low but bring it up and then take out the price for the bag think about it"

Cons: "Even my 16x14x12 was not accepted. I had to pay for the baggage"

Cons: "To small a space for me. I prefer SouthWest."

Cons: "All the extra costs not included with your ticket purchase"

Pros: "The seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Lines were not organized. Very confusing."

Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Luggage price - ridiculous. Lack of comfort plus luggage cost outweighed the cost of tickets."
