Airline reviews

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. I was a little late and wanted an aisle seat even though I had no hope there was one available. The gate clerk was very pleasant and was able to move me."

Pros: "love jet blue"

Pros: "It was my birthday and they went above and beyond to make me feel special wishing me happy birthday shortly after teaching my seat and by giving me a Birthday card signed by the crew and treats."

Pros: "Easy going boarding, easy going staff, excellent amenities with personal large size video screen, elegant cabin with cool blue light and with accessible self-serving snacks and drinks and just overall very clean modern plane"
Cons: "All the other airlines"

Cons: "The beginning was a bit confusing when I needed to use JetBlue because I had to go to the help desk to figure out why they wouldn’t issue all of my boarding passes at JFK and the line took an hour just for them to tell me to get my boarding pass at LAX. Other than that it was a great flight!"

Pros: "On time flight. No issues at all during the flight"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "It took over 2.5 hours to decide to switch airplanes"

Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."

Pros: "Studios were nice."
Cons: "Was expecting to buy a meal and only could purchase the snacks. Movie screen is very out dated."

Cons: "That the flight kept on getting delayed. JB staff should be more efficient. We understand the delay of up to one hour, but no one had any idea what was taking so long. we are two senior citizen with medical conditions. We specifically choose to fly JetBlue because they are on time and because of their service. We paid more to go with JetBlue, we could have gone with another cheaper airline. I guess it is time we change the way we think"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"

Pros: "Charging port, tv with lots of options like music, tv, and movies. free snacks and beverages."
Cons: "delays and gate was switched last minute and I wasn't notified so was very close to missing my flight"

Pros: "Fast easy on and hassle free"
Cons: "Internet needs more attention"

Cons: "The service was very poor!!! A five hours delay with a bunch of different excuses. People broke down upon arrival! Others missed connecting flights to their homes it was just awful"

Cons: "Over hour delay on runway."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "the screen above the seat was broken and couldn't turn off it off. Was very bright for the duration of the flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew and highly comfortable flight. Will be switching to Jet Blue!!"

Pros: "Jet Blue is always a great experience due in great part to your staff! I was running late. They accommodated. The flight was late but the checkin crew was stellar and kept us informed and in a great mood. Then the flight crew took it from there and they were, as always, true professionals. Thank you!"

Pros: "Everything was great, keep up the good work!!"

Cons: "The flight was very late."

Pros: "Read some reviews regarding tardiness but our flights out of LAX and return from NY (go see US Open Tennis Championship) were either on time or early. On-board entertainment was great since we can watch LIVE matches from US Open on the return trip. However, you have to bring your own ear phone/head set otherwise it will cost some $$. Free WIFI too"

Pros: "They got us on quickly, and the flight arrived quicker than expected."
Cons: "The line for security was poorly managed, tried talking to multiple employees and they all ignored me, and on the plane there was no wifi, and I tried to flag down a flight attendant for water but they never came to the back of the plane."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"

Cons: "They don't have free meal services and they ran out of the meals you can purchase, we weren't pleased"

Pros: "Good movies and sufficient leg room."
Cons: "We didn't even know we were boarding - our destination wasn't on the display board and you couldn't hear the woman announcing who was able to board. Very disorganized. We sat on the runway for a long time before taking off and we boarded the plan much later than the delayed flight time."

Pros: "The staff, the service and the overall flight experience!!! Best flight ever1"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great!"

Cons: "JetBlue placed my luggage on the wrong plane. I had to wait 2 extra hours at baggage claim for another flight to arrive with my luggage."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Almost a two hour delay to get on the plane. Then sat on the runway for 45 minutes. Ugh. Weather. So not your fault. None of our headphones worked -- we each had a different kind of headphones -- something wrong with the plug in? All 3 of us sat with our fingers on the plugs wiggling the whole time."

Pros: "Service perfect"

Pros: "The free wifi, snacks and service was awesome."
Cons: "I didn't like the food selection on the menu."

Pros: "Boarding, crew, bathrooms, entertainment, smoothness of flight, wifi"
Cons: "Always hope for more than water and pretzels, but those days are gone I guess."

Cons: "Our luggage came back broken (case cracked)"

Pros: "The entertainment was what I like most! Many other airlines do not offer this option or when they offer they charge you for it... jet Bleu has good entreteniment and free!"
Cons: "The boarding was not well organised and there was not enough space for hand lugged."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "I liked everything !"

Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."

Pros: "There wasn't much to like. The entertainment selection was decent, but considering that it crashed continually throughout the flight, and then stopped working halfway through, selection didn't mean much."
Cons: "Wifi - didn't work the entire flight (nor did it work on my outbound flight either). Entertainment system - kept crashing in the middle of watching movies, and then ultimately stopped working altogether (with 4.5 hours left in the flight). The seats are TINY - I've flown Mint class several times, and while it's great that they've created such an awesome experience up front, the coach experience has REALLY suffered."

Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours. Taken into account that are departure time our departure time was 730p and my arrival to LAX was supposed to be 1255am, delaying us 3 hours got me home at 4am!"

Pros: "Free wifi, snacks, Dunkin Donuts coffee and movies. Friendly employees, clean plane. Made the six hour flight a breeze."
Cons: "Great flight all around."

Cons: "After landing we sat on the runway for one hour."

Pros: "Entertainment and free Wi fi. 1st bag free"
Cons: "Delay of flight, I was told by Jet Blue that booking via Kayak was why my wife and 15 year old son were put in 3 separate middle seats"

Pros: "The entertainment is a big reason why I choose Jet Blue over other airlines. Unfortunately, the movies did not work."

Pros: "Walking in to the Boston terminal was immediately relaxing. I got through the line quickly and once I got to my gate it was also very relaxing."
Cons: "Soba noodles were soggy, but not a deal breaker!"

Cons: "We were waiting on the taxieway for 45 min after we landed."

Pros: "On time and great seats, lots of room"

Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and attentive, the "grab your own snacks" options were abundant, and always enjoy their DirectTV."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours due to maintenance issues."

Pros: "Excellent stewards!! Very friendly! Great snacks"

Pros: "First and foremost we made AMAZING time! Secondly the pilot was perfect in navigating through thebmidwest avoiding as much turbulence as possible from a major storm but flight was extremely smooth. And as always JetBlue's customer service is unparalleled."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The wifi is free. Video always works. Clean and spacious Love this airline!"
Cons: "The boarding process didnt make sense but not a big deal"

Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding lines are awful"

Pros: "the food... the travel...the movies..."
Cons: "I like everythimg... but the that I like, is that we arraived on time. even we was 15 minutes late.."

Pros: "The planes and the crew"
Cons: "The gate printed on the pass board was different than the actual gate at lay over stop"

Cons: "We were sitting for at least three hours before drinks were served, and not because there was any turbulence. It just took them forever to load up the cart. Also, the air conditioning wasn't working very well. We were roasting for nearly seven hours."

Cons: "Almost got stuck in Panama City because we could not get seats on the last flight, after complaining we got the last seats left on the flight but others did not get seats and had to stay behind. No vegetarian options for food"

Pros: "Good as can be"

Cons: "Departure delay not usual in COPA."

Pros: "The crew they provide us what we need"

Cons: "Got bumped from flight"

Pros: "Good seats, entertainment, crew, flying time and on schedule. Would definitely fly with them again."

Cons: "Then they took my husbands passport and went through all of his belongings which took another 15 minutes. We had just been screened in Bogota."

Pros: "We liked everything. It was short but great."

Pros: "Licor gratuito"

Cons: "The space for the legroom was to tight. I had to stand up several times to stretch my legs, they were getting cramps. I'm only 5'8"."

Cons: "No toilet paper or tissues in bathroom"

Pros: "The Crew, the lady in Business Class was very professional. You are fortunate to have a lady like her in your employ. Generally COPA itself. My only complaint so far I wrote about in this thread."
Cons: "Panama gate, there were not enough seats, one had to stand, or lay on the floor. LAX, did we land in Inglewood? We had to bus to the terminal (which made elders carry their luggage up steps); it had to stop every time we were within certain feet of a moving plane, your staff telling people to move closer on the bus, when we were already packed in. It added a much longer time to the trip, and I saw COPA planes attached to the terminal, unfortunately we were not one of them. I paid for the upgrade, which was fine, buy the Panama gate, and the bus situation was bad. Health & happiness..........."

Pros: "That I was able to eat in the plane excellent food!!"
Cons: "That didn't have Wi-Fi and the economy seating only one bathroom was working"

Cons: "We had to go through security 3 times, our flight was delayed 1.5 hours and we were not allowed to bring water on the plane. We have also been taxing on the runway for 30mins so I missed my transfer home. I would likely never fly cops again."

Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "I did not like having to sit on the floor while waiting for the plane to board. After going through screening, we were held in a room that had about 75 chairs for a plane that held over 150 passengers. room and seating was way to small for the passengers boarding the plane."

Pros: "Kidness of flight attendants Both flights on time"
Cons: "They should improve the entertainment on board. Most of the airlines have installed screen on the back of every seat and have internet access."

Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "I don't understand why we go through security and then need to clear out of the gate and go through security all over again. That was strange to me"

Pros: "The crew was polite, funny and social"
Cons: "maybe just a little more space in between the seats."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and very kindly..."
Cons: "The waiting area was too crowded..."

Pros: "The service was ok but they seemed like young jokers who were there just for their job (money) and less to make our experience good. They were always hanging out and laughing in the back."
Cons: "Someone should remind people in English and Spanish that the screens on the back of the seats are light touch. The lady behind me kept pounding in it until I asked her nicely not to and I think she didn't speak English so she just looked angry and shrugged me off. It was quite a problem for me."

Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. Poor variety of movies to choose from. Not enough options of movies and TV shows to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing."

Cons: "we had to endure a second security check at the boarding gate -never had to do that anywhere else in the world we've traveled from. The monitor for my seat was not functioning well."

Pros: "Friendly staff was there all along the flight. There wasn't a moment where the crew members weren't making sure you needed something."
Cons: "The recently released movies selection was very limited other airlines have a bigger selection of movies"

Pros: "Entertainment options were good and system worked well Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Food could have been better--pasta entrée dry and tasteless, chicken sandwich awful. (Empanada on other flight much better) Seems to take a long time, 10-15 minutes, to get door open once arrive at the gate."

Cons: "Asked for water never got . Asked for tea never got."

Pros: "The crew of Copa Airlines were very cordial and professional."

Cons: "Copa 302 dumped us at the LAX terminal's immigration processing area along with 500+ passengers. I'm guessing that passengers from 3 or 4 other flights just overwhelmed the immigration staff . It took us ( just the US citizens ) 1:05 to pass through. People in other categories too longer !!! Ed Villena"

Pros: "Crew was very kind"

Pros: "very good service"

Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"

Pros: "They were not as friendly as the LA crew but still enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "Flight Network after several emails in a foreign country we attempted to change the flight to a different day and not until a few days before the flight they told us it would $400/person. Not impressed with Flight Network and will NEVER book with them again."

Pros: "comfortable boarding, on time"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "I bought a wine and it got lost"

Cons: "Missleading information from COPA personnel at JFK Airport about to claim the luggage in Bogota or Cali. Secondly the last connection Bogota-Cali was not booked either by Copa or Kayak with Avianca Airlines, so after showing paper work and fighting with Copa we got 4 hour late flight. We were not the only ones, there were about 12 people with the same situation."

Pros: "There was a flight delay longer than what my next layover was going to be. Copa rebooked me with American Airlines and got to my final destination just 40 minutes later than originally planned."

Pros: "Puntualidad . Good atention."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"

Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"

Pros: "the seat is roomer than United airline and American Airline. the crew is much younger than other airplane company. the food and service are good too."

Cons: "Flight has been delayed for over 12 hrs. I still haven't left LIM :("

Pros: "A crew member did her best to resolve my problem"
Cons: "My seats designation were changed several times."

Pros: "A good amount of room, really enjoyed that you could check in two 23kg bags free. It helped a lot with the carry on baggage issue (lack of space, too many people wanting to put their too large bags in the overhead bins). Good entertainment selection, they provide headphones which is nice. Comfy blankets. The crew was attentive and patient."
Cons: "Started boarding late but the captain got us to our destination early even in spite of late boarding."

Pros: "Large amounts of movies to choose from."
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM! The worst!"

Pros: "Good short"
Cons: "Better sandwich"

Cons: "I showed up to my flight from Lima and was told by Latam that my flight wasn't in their system. Due to the late hour and lack of customer service agents by the time I was able to get to the front of the line (phone calls didn't go through to anyone) the time had passed for me to even check in. According to Latam, Virgin changed my flight and forgot to rebook my return home. I ended up sleeping at the Lima airport, paying out of pocket almost $2000 and having to fly through Miami. No one took responsibility for the fact my ticket was changed and I wasn't informed - unacceptable."

Pros: "very nice crew, good food and drink on board"
Cons: "There is no VIP lounge in Lima anymore. It is unbelievable that Latam, maybe the biggest operator in that hub, doesn't have a lounge. The layover stunk!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, attentive, helpful,friendly. Food was good not great. Business seats lay flat."
Cons: "Business seats, when laying flat, were not particularly comfortable. Rather hard. The only complaint."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The plane is ok but it is an old 767"

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No leg room, seats go back too far"

Pros: "there was way too little leg room and the seats went back too far. I love LAN and LATAM because the crew and cudtomer service are always EXCELLENT."
Cons: "Standing too long before boarding at 2am!"

Pros: "Maybe, we'll have to see..."
Cons: "KAYAK sent me this email as i sit in a hotel provided by the airline in Lima. I will submit a complaint with KAYAK, for I believe I deserve compensation, especially when this email is sent to me impersonally before a solution to the problem has even been carried out."

Pros: "My movie screen did not work. Those are not my stars on this survey."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable."
Cons: "The crew boarding the passengers did not seem to know what they were doing. I waited in line for over 30 minutes, which at 1 am in the morning was tough. I had my boarding pass reviewed by 3 different attendants. They did a cursory inspection of my backpack by opening 2 of the 15 pockets."

Pros: "The crew and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Coming from the cuisine of Peru, I expected the food in coach to at least not taste like rubber and have some variety. A ham and cheese pastry for dinner didn't quite cut it. At least they offer free wine and beer."

Pros: "The LATAM entertainment offering for planes without screens was very cool."
Cons: "The plane was older and a little rickety. The gate was unknown until very close to the flight."

Pros: "Glad to have the pillow and blanket. Plane was clean and new. Really appreciate the luggage bins now allow standing up in the middle seat."
Cons: "Food was not as good as other LAN flights I've been on. No fruit in the fruit high season."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"

Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."

Pros: "They gave me and exit row."
Cons: "Turbulence, but that wasn't their fault."

Pros: "Crew really stood out as exceptional. Friendly responsive and kind."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"

Pros: "The newer planes with full video made travelling nice"
Cons: "Legroom was a little tight"

Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"

Pros: "Crew Attention Last Leg of the Trip (Lima-LA) the Plane 787-8 comfort layout"
Cons: "little delay on boarding without letting us know why? Although did not delay, even arrived earlier, the overall time of the trip."

Cons: "Latam The website of Latam is useless. The services for people in broadcoast is so difficult that almost impossible (email, facebook, telephone, etc) In my case, i was in Africa and couldn´t change my ticket. My brother had to change it from Argentina."

Cons: "When buying a flight price and the airline on which I fly are the two most important factors.... LAN transferred my flight to AVIANCA and the food was terrible and the flight attendants weren't very friendly in general. The experience was not very enjoyable"

Pros: "Got to see the Lima airport"
Cons: "Even though it was the same exact plane at the same exact flight. All passengers had to get out, go through a security check point, then wait in line to board again. And at boarding all carry-ons were searched by hand, proving that the security check point is useless."

Pros: "I liked the service. On time leaving. And on time arrival. Luggage was ther. No lost luggage. I would do it again for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like boarding procedure. But overall not bad"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They gave my seat to someone else, they overbooked the flight"

Pros: "I was able to move my seat to a middle seat and got to watch."

Cons: "We would watch other people on the plane across the aisle or in front of us get food options but when it was our turn to be served the flight attendants just handed us whatever was closest without asking our preference. If something is unavailable just say so."

Pros: "The food was great and so was sercice. I had economy seats and they were comfortable and I had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Maybe more movie options but otherwise the whole flight was without fault"

Cons: "American Airline did not announce the change of gate in proper time. LATAM on the other hand was very good and smooth"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delay was a drag and bathrooms were disgusting"

Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "The stop in Lima"

Pros: "Nice people"

Pros: "Um the inflight entertainment is good. The touch screen is great."
Cons: "Um not enough arm room for economy class. When you're in an 8 hour flight, comfort needs to be a priority. It's not fair to pack a bunch of people in like sardines after paying $800. The service was fine. Some crew members are nice than the others."

Cons: "My husband luggage got lost. After 15 days still no luggage. We have contact the airline and still no resolution. 1st time and last time using LAN/Tam."

Pros: "The staff was extremely courteous and the food was good too. The seats were conformtable and the movie selection great !"

Pros: "Air-conditioning!"
Cons: "Several connecting flight passengers (at least a dozen) were stuck at the security checkpoint during our boarding time. Despite being reassured that they would wait for the remaining passengers, they closed the gate to the jet way before everyone boarded. My friend arrived before the departure time and only after begging the gate lady to open the gate was my friend allowed to board the plane. Thanks, AA >_<."

Pros: "they were on time"
Cons: "They changed our flight again from LAX to Oakland."

Cons: "My flight was oversold, I did not get on the plane. Had to wait 5 hours for the next flight. Supervisor didn't want to talk to me. Employees where rude. They didn't care."

Pros: "The crew were great they tried to kill all the mosquitos but not till every passenger was sited for some time and tried to keep the mosquitos from biting us."
Cons: "The plane was full of mosquitos from I'm only questing the plane sitting on the tarmac."

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."

Cons: "I document my suitcase they opened and stolen my clothing"

Pros: "The smile of the personal when you get into the plane, Awesome"

Pros: "I love there service"

Pros: "This company still have the old fashion where the customer is number one!!, thanks the price are amazing and the ser is as well."

Pros: "Please see the above note"
Cons: "Please see the above note"

Pros: "Staff was helpful and friendly at Guadalajara airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. I wasn't notified of luggage fees and had to pay in 1000 Mexican pesos plus taxes. My husband is handicapped and we had to be shuttled from terminal 2 to Tom Bradley. It was very inconvenient!"

Pros: "Once on the flight people were great. It was not their fault the people at the counter were awful."
Cons: "When trying to check into my flight (which I had selected my seat in advance) i was told that there were no more seats on my flight and could not check in. I had to stand in line to speak to someone who reassigned me to a middle seat on an emergency exit with no recline. Fine, whatever. Then I am told that all my carry on things have to be 10k or less COMBINED. Not something I have ever experienced. Was told mixed things about this "new rule" and then paid $25 to have my carry on checked."

Pros: "Nice airline. Would haoouly ride again."

Pros: "Straightforward and good. Very Timely."

Pros: "Crew was nice, check in people was nice too"
Cons: "The zonnes for boarding are not respected at all. The crew its handling people's documents in a rush and don't have the time to check what groups are boarding. The food was way too little. I've travel hundreds of times. This was the smallest meal I've ever had"

Pros: "It was fast and easy n comfortable"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I did not like the gate attendants poor customer service and discrimination . Yelling at the customer. Then the flight attendants seemed mad and also gave poor customer service . Would not recommend this company. Flights were always delayed. Horrible experience."

Cons: "Crew was rude. Lost my luggage."

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: "Got home safe"
Cons: "The wait. The landing was rough."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything!"

Pros: "Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed like have little attitude. Their attitude doesn't only express by verbal it even expresses by their eye contact and body language ."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "No clear instructions on where to go or gate information inside of the airport"

Pros: "the fact that the passenger wasn't aware until check-in that the ticket vendor had screwed up the sale"
Cons: "gosh- where to start. Your vendor never completed the reservation and never advised me either. Worst airline reservation I've ever made. The passenger arrived at the terminal prior to the flight and was told no reservation was made. I ended up paying a extra $100 to get her on the plane, no responsibility accepted by the vendor. Nice job there."

Cons: "No IFE; seats rather tight. The sandwich with a slice of cheese and unknown deli meat was almost inedible - why don't they just allow fliers to pay for their own food?"

Pros: "Great customer service and great food."
Cons: "Every thing was great."

Pros: "Good service. Friendly flight crew. Everything went well."
Cons: "I didn't ask but it seemed like there were no food options for people with dietary restrictions, like a simple salad. However, I was surprised they had food in the first place."

Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Can do better on the snacks"

Cons: "Aeromexico lost our luggage"

Pros: "The crew members were very nice and friendly. The staff at check in were also nice and things were run very smoothly."
Cons: "The cabin AC did not turn on until every last passenger was seated and the door was closed.. It was really hot inside. I don't know what can be done about it, but that was frustrating. Also, I'm gulten intolerant and it would be nice if you served something other than sandwiches. Not a big deal, but just a suggestion."

Pros: "boarding and leaving plane, the wheel chair service, nice helpful crew, flight departed and landed on time, snack and beverage."
Cons: "landing at LAX was a bit jumpy/scary, airport construction - not Aero Mexico's fault though."

Cons: "Food, entertainment and space"

Pros: "Very nice crew, super professional"

Cons: "I waited 50 minutes for my bag claim with priority tag. Customer service desk employee told me wait...wait without any excuse or explanation. No more Aeromexico.....period"

Cons: "Crew members are rude, flight was delayed and no one informed us."

Pros: "The attention was amazing, way better than expected."

Pros: "Staff cortesy"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "There's nothing i didn't like"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing was bad."

Cons: "Didn't board on time"

Pros: "La atencion del personal"
Cons: "Todo me gusto"

Cons: "Charged US $300 to catch next flight after missing scheduled flight. They should have put me on stand by but refused. The flight they charged me $300 for was over 2 hours late causing me to miss my connection. There's more to the story than this. I was well early for my original flight and they still managed to screw me over. After I arrived late in LA and missed my connection the awesome folks at Virgin America simply put me on the next flight."

Cons: "No urgency when boarding plane in Mexico so we were automatically 30 min delayed. Flight was overbooked and the flight attendants chose to deal with the issue right when the plane should have been boarding. No AIr conditioning on entire journey from GDL-LAX. Sat in Tarmac for about 10 min additional without air conditioning due to no gates available for our flight."

Pros: "Sandwich n breakfast is good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of lima so missed connecting flight. Waited anothr 3 hrz."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very observant and offered to assist passengers even before being asked."
Cons: "The boarding process could be made more efficient."

Pros: "The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "People started to line up at the gate an hour before the flight as instructed. This is inconvenience to as it would be more comfortable to be sitting for that time. Yet the boarding process was much slower than other carriers. The crew was professional but not so friendly. The food and drinks were not served until an hour and a half after take off, half way through the flight. Food was not very good a croissant with a small piece of meat and a small slice of cheese in it. Once service began, those of us seated in the middle of the plane could not get past the carts for at least 30 minutes to use the restrooms. Overall, I expected more from the country's principle carrier."

Cons: "Left late and was dirty."

Pros: "One flight attendant was very nice the others were snobby and rude."
Cons: "I didn't like how tiny the seats were. I didn't like the choice of food. I don't like how there was no room for my bags and my seat was close to the front of the plane. An I didn't like that things In my checked bagged were broken and spilled. My bag was packed tight and padded for the breakables."

Pros: "Me encanto visitar mi país de nuevo"
Cons: "La atención es verdaderamente buena"

Pros: "extremely impressed. just wow!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Treated like a boss. I have never flown this airline before but I was upgraded to first class... maybe because I'm mexican? Viva Mexico!"

Pros: "We got to our destination a little early. I was able to check in ahead of time."
Cons: "The seats are so close together that my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Also, the flight attendants were kind of surly."

Pros: "Flight was smooth, crew was great, boarding was easy, excellent trip."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "you have to pay for basically EVERYTHING. At the end the flight LA Portla,d cost me more tha LA london....."

Cons: "Have you been screwed over by Spirit airlines? Have you noted how a carry-on costs over $40? Have you noticed that you can't check in on the internet without signing up for their website and giving them all your personal information? Have they suddenly and at the last hour delayed your flight by 4 hours without letting you know, and then claimed that they emailed you, when they didn't? Have you noticed that they don't allowed comments to be posted to their facebook page (because they'd get nothing but bad comments). On top of that, when I got to the front counter, where I was told that my flight was delayed 3 hrs (thanks for not texting ir emailing me about it), I asked the guy at the counter to check and see if I was still on the flight. He confirmed that I was. But when we started boarding, my ticket no longer worked and he could not find me on the flight list! Wtf??? I almost got left out of th plane because of what???"

Cons: "$57 per checked bag. Absolute rip off"

Cons: "Flight cancelled for no reason"

Cons: "terrible"

Pros: "Plenty of time to nap. In a uncomfortable chair"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Good pilot. Good landing and he gave good updates."
Cons: "I would like at least a couple water along with my ticket. Seats are very uncomfortable and the don't recline at all."

Pros: "Spirit Air was okay. Crew was very nice, including the ground crew. No issue with Spirit. Issue is with Kayak."
Cons: "Charged exorbitant fees for carry on luggage! Kayak did not notify me that I will be charged $45 each way for a carry on! I would've saved a lot more if I booked directly at Spirit Air's website. If I did, my carry on would only cost me $21 each way."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Very good experience"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "They charge for everything and don't allow you to pay for bags when you purchase but if they aren't paid for when you purchase then you pay more. The customer service reps constantly try to upsell."

Pros: "Thought the flight was cheap but that's just a lie"
Cons: "So many hidden fees terrible customer service. Never again will I fly spirit"

Pros: "smooth in air and excellent landing"
Cons: "left 45 minutes AFTER we boarded due to a maintenance issue that needed to be "signed off" on and it took 30+ minutes to get our baggage."

Pros: "it was a smooth flightback no problems at all"

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline which is inappropriate for a 5-6 hour flight. The tray was also so small I couldn't put my laptop on it to watch a movie. There was nowhere to plug into power so my iPhone (a backup for movies) died hours before we landed. Lastly, I was called to help assist a passenger who had fainted (I'm a doctor) and was offered nothing in return for my help. Not even a soda. I didn't offer to help in hopes of "free stuff," but the other airlines I have flown with have offered me a drink, some food, or even $ off my next flight as a thank you for my medical services."

Cons: "charge too expensive for baggages.delay too long."

Pros: "It was horrible flight. From start to finish."

Pros: "Cheap, on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every leg of flight was delayed 2 + hours the whole trip was horrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Long lines. Cramped seats."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The attitude of the baggage clerk at the New Orleans Airport. She over charged us for our baggage, and did not correct it."

Pros: "Never will take spirit airline"

Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"

Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added."

Pros: "My flight experience up to PDX was slightly better than the last time I flew Spirit, which gave me hope that they had improved as a low cost airline."
Cons: "My train was late getting to the airport so the flight had closed when i arrived. Even though I wasn't checking a bag they still wouldn't let me check in. They offered me the same flight the next day for an extra $100. I turned it down since I found a flight the same day for $78 on American (and decidedly a better flight experience)."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "-"

Cons: "The say they are the home of the "bare fare" like it's a good thing. What they mean is, by the time you pay for a lite checked bag or for a single carry on you'll be paying just as much as any of their competitors. And forget about getting any type of snack or refreshments. That is unless you Want to pay out the nose for the grossest drink selection I've ever seen. No entertainment options at all, staff was barely attentive, seats were dirty with no comfort amenities. They were as bad as you can expect from a bargain airline, and not actually cheaper once you include the ridiculous baggage charges."

Pros: "The crew on this flight were friendly, although the Spirit crew on my previous flight were very rude to a woman who was on her way to a funeral when she told them that one in her party had been left at the gate."
Cons: "EVERYTHING cost extra (snack, coffee, water, picking my seat, bringing a carry on, a checked bag over 40 lbs.). The seats didn't recline."

Pros: "Boarding time change disinformation. Eventually take off delayed by half an hour"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I was forced to check-in my luggage even though I've always used this suitcase and I never check it in. I can accept 25$ for a check in, but 50$??"

Cons: "This is bad to cancel the flight like that no explanation"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Two hours delayed. No running water so could not wash hands in bathroom or have tea/coffee."

Pros: "Service., staff, size of plane inside.!"
Cons: "Some passengers didn't say 'excuse me' at all."

Pros: "I liked that the fare was cheap."
Cons: "Self-deprecating jokes from the crew about how they charge for bags, food, and oxygen."

Cons: "I booked my return flight the same day i booked my departure. I didn't recieve an email with my itinerary nor was i charged for the flight so i called the airline. After 30 minutes of my time wasted i was still on call waiting. The day before my return flight i panicked and bought a whole new ticket and then like 8 hours before muy flight i get an email asking if I'm ready for muy upcoming flight. I am completely disappointed with both kayak and spirit airlines. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE BOOKING SPIRIT AIRLINES AGAIN!!"

Pros: "very good service and price,"

Pros: "Thought it was less expensive but in the end with all the baggage fees it wasnt."
Cons: "Very small amount of room. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for even just a basic beverage. I will definitely take a different airline next time I fly."

Pros: "The crew was nice when they told me I was screwed. I was happy to share my frustration with my thousand-plus Facebook friends and to hear other people's stories of getting screwed by Spirit."
Cons: "Didn't find out flight was cancelled until I was at the airport. They didn't have an available flight to LAX until Saturday - TWO DAYS LATER. Completely bush league. NEVER AGAIN."

Cons: "3 hour delay and customer service"

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."

Pros: "Nothing, prices were not even that cheap and after bag fees and other hidden fees it was a complete scam"
Cons: "Everything. Seats don't recline. No water. Bad staff. Terrible pricing strategy"

Pros: "Very smooth. The flight was full but the attendants were super welcoming and attentive. Could have been a little more leg room. Buy for an economy flight, it was just fine. Boarded a bit late but departed and arrived on time."

Pros: "Clean and friendly."
Cons: "Luggage took a while to get unloaded and organized out on the carousel."

Pros: "The food options."
Cons: "That the seats don't recline, that the attendants are rude,"

Pros: "Initial ticket price"
Cons: "Final cost of travel No Legroom Seats do not recline Had to pay extra for a seat had to pay extra for carry on luggage uncomfortable seats hidden costs"

Pros: "The cost of the ticket was less expensive compared to other airlines. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "Luggage cost extremely high in comparison and No amenities."

Pros: "$45 Phoenix to LAX. Can't go wrong. My carry on easily met the requirements for the free bag. If you're going away for more than a long weekend probably makes more sense to fly another airline."

Cons: "I was almost charged for my trolley bag, just because you decided it does not fit (by a centimeter) in your stupid measurement. I had to insert it to my luggage (in 2 shots - the second time it was OVERLOAD???!!!)... Are you serious? Very disappointed... I will try not to fly spirit anymore... Erez Nassimi erezn@hotmail.com"
