Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Lots of screaming children. Not much to be done about that."
Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Turbulence was high so good/drink service was less than normal. No fault of delta or their crew but the JFK airport was awful, especially through customs. No help from the employees and easy to get lost."
Pros: "The crew were awesome and friendly, both in the air and on the ground."
Cons: "Delta communicated no reasoning for delaying our flight three hours. They also did not update estimated departure times even when it was clear we would be delayed multiple times because the plane was not at the gate, the crew were not in place, and the pilot safety checks had not occurred."
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly flight staff, on time service."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "Never made the connecting flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing had no problems!"

Pros: "The plane was very new and clean; entertainment options and food were very good; it was a good flight."

Pros: "Nice plane and comfy seats"
Cons: "The stewards were not at all helpful or as friendly as most of the delta staff! I was so disappointed with their service. We had TWO delays making us arrive in SAT AT almost 2 am. Hence there were a lot of empty seats. We asked if we or even one of us could move into the …at least three empty rows…and they would not let us as they were they comfort plus section and it cost more…NO ONE WAS USING THESE SEATS!! So they let the passengers be crammed together in the rest of the plane and left numerous empty seats that could have been used! It’s was just rude. They also served drinks and never checked back to pick up the garbage. Didn’t tell us to raise our seats or put up our table trays before landing. So, as I exited the plane I handed them my garbage! I wasn’t going to be rude and leave it in the seat pocket or my seat …where I found crumbs of food on when I boarded the plane. Was just very dissatisfied with this crew!! I have been flying a lot lately using delta. I’ve had some delays but they’ve always been accommodating, this crew was not! What a shame!"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Cons: "No food or drinks"
Pros: "The take off and landing were very smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Crying baby aboard"
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."

Cons: "Not comfortable at all, doesn’t feel like any upgrade from regular economy seat."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."

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!"

Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, no power, service predictable and boring snacks."
Pros: "Delta does a good job of seating and meals and flight offerings"

Cons: "Airplanes are filthy; asked for Coke without ice & the flight attendant filled my cup halfway. Unbelievably cheap! I was afraid to ask for more, for fear that I'd get an up charge!"
Pros: "Repair took just under an hour which I think is very good considering the paperwork that is involved. We were informed and everyone on the plane seemed to understand so the handling of the event must have been exceptional..."

Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."

Pros: "Nothing at all."

Cons: "You could have been on time. You negatively impacts ppls lives and don’t give af."

Cons: "Free real food"
Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "Friendly, comfortable and ON-TIME!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "There was a mom with 3 very rowdy boys in the row in front of me. They disrupted the entire length of the flight! I wish a Flight Attendant had said something to them as the mom clearly didn't care to discipline her kids. Worst flight ever!"
Pros: "We left a few minutes early"
Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

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: "The flight was so short we did not even get a snack, only an offer of a bottle of water; this was simply due to to short length of the flight. Basic economy had my wife and I 16 rows apart each in a middle seat. I was in the very last seat on the plane. Flight attendants were attentive and surprisingly very nice, legroom is non-existent (same as every flight in plain coach)."

Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Cons: "Sat next to a dog guy and the crew did not help with the situation"

Cons: "never was told that a shuttle was needed to get from gate to actual aircraft. I almost missed my flight because of this."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about my flight from DFW to San Antonio was the fact that I FINALLY got to go home."
Cons: "The fact my layover was in Dallas, I couldn't board on time because of our departure from Denver being delayed from ice, and the gate got switched about three times. I've never been in a standby list, but I barely made it. I'll never want to fly through DFW again!!! The American Airlines employees were mostly inconsiderate, with the exception of two staff members. Not sure about this airline again."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry-on bag because it was too big according to the gate agent. I travel weekly, always carry-on my luggage and I have never been told it needed to be checked. AA had a ticket counter agent that was on a mission because she had a roll away cart parked by the jet way door to collect all the luggage she wouldn't allow on the plane. Very customer unfriendly!"

Pros: "After missing my flight by a few minutes, AA booked me on the next flight which was only a 40 min wait, which was a blessing."

Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"
Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"
Pros: "Arriving ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Wireless not working well and not able to watch movies"
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"
Cons: "Too cold. Was freezing all the way over."
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 liked the seat. Comfy."
Cons: "I didn’t like the sorry choice of food — prepackaged snacks. The cabin crew was adequate but unenthusiastic."

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: "I liked the size of plane didn't feel cramped."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "it was ok"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Arrived late....broken seat"

Pros: "The costumer service at Denver international airport was great."
Cons: "The tv and movie did not work"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Too many gate changes."
Cons: "That they charged me an extra $100"

Pros: "Spirits bare fare was a real pain during boarding. I was aware and prepared for the baggage and check in fees but the airport taxes in San Jose took me by surprise. We had to wait in line for over 2 hours to pay the fees before being allowed to check in. The flight was further delayed making the process even more painful as we had two young kids."
Cons: "Airport taxes not being included and lack of warning till we got to the airport."
Pros: "Very helpful and kind"
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!"

Pros: "Sharp timing, clean planes, excellent pilots"
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: "Overall very dissapionted..."

Pros: "Quick simple and cheap flights to and from San Jose CR to Houston Texas - If you can get by with just a backpack they are fantastic - if you don't mind random seat assignments and the trip is not so long as to survive without at least a coffee and snack - then i recommend them - if you have to check baggage and buy an inflight snack then you might better use southwest because to match what southwest includes in their flat ticket price vs buying it as add on's via spirit then spirit costs more"
Cons: "Website lacks information, not very intuitive to find information and they almost do everything possible to not provide phone support assistance - i had to look on other websites to find their number and the minute you dial it they threaten to charge you - simple questions like if their is a weight limit on the single free personal bag carryon are not answered - doubt I would recommend them for any long significant journey but for under 4 hour cheap flights back and forth from houston to san jose costa rica they are great"
