Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."

Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"
Pros: "Boarding, food, drinks"

Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "crew was excellent as ell as the counter personal"
Pros: "The food, it was like have McDonald's right away. And the crew, and the seat"
Cons: "The plane have for charges."
Pros: "My own tv screen , quality of food, service from the crew, beverage selection and cabin comfort"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Cons: "Copa did not allow me to board plane with setvice animal. Stating paperwork is not acceptable for travel to Peru. I bought tickets on avianca and traveled to Peru and had no issues entering Peru with paperwork. Also copa lost luggage for 3 days spent 3500 on copa and received nothing in return"
Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."

Pros: "See first review"
Cons: "See first review"
Pros: "Airline with high service quality standards and well trained crew."
Cons: "Transfer time un Panamá was Too short"
Pros: "A very good flight except for the meal. The seats were comfortable and the crew friendly. The connecting time in Panama City was spot-on and worked like clock-work. We deboarded and walked down a couple of gates and were boarding our flight to Lima in 15 minutes. I would recommend Copa at anytime. Our price was incredible and we got SO much more than we paid for which is unusual today."
Cons: "I was spoiled on an earlier leg of our flight with the selection of entertainment. On this flight there was only one in-flight selection played on the various monitors."
Pros: "nice new appearing lane"
Cons: "Food was fair, but at least there was a meal."
Cons: "Flight was cramped no space on airplane shoulder to shoulder with the person next to you"
Cons: "They dindt let my whole family of 4 board the plane, because we were supposed late to check in 2 hours prior to the plane leaving, the ordeal with the stuff and discussions back and forth git us exausted and we left the airport ."
Cons: "The crew at the gate was extremely rude, didn't even called the flight other than once announcing we were gonna start boarding. Then I have 2 infants and when I asked about priority seating, you would have thought I asked her for a free flight because I got such a nasty response, not only me but she yelled at a guy in a wheelchair! Because he wanted to go in front of others to get himself settled (he had all the right in the world to do so) I honestly wanted to say a few kind words to this girl but I didn't."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to some technical difficulties. They told us to wait, while there were no other plane to replace. Then ( only in spanish) they announced that there is no more flights this day and we need to go to the Copa counter to rebook our flights. everything was super unorganized. I waited 6 hours to get my new flight. It was a mess. Never again i am tlying Copa Airlines"
Cons: "This is the worst plane I have ever flown on. The space between seats is so small I couldn't even sit straight. I am a tall man and thankfully the flight was not full because I was forced to sit sideways the whole time. I will try in the future to never take a copa airlines plane for any amount of time for any trip."
Cons: "punctual arrive"
Cons: "Flight overbooked, they assigned me a seat 5 minutes before departure"
Pros: "Everything was fine except I ordered an aisle seat and was given a middle seat instead. The person who did get aisle played a war game for my territory with his arns over the arm rest and his refusal to get up whem the window person needed out. Next tine I will demand my aisle purchase is hononored"
Cons: "My aisle purchase being respected"

Cons: "Had to spend the whole day in airport due to justfly booking error"
Pros: "I liked how I was always informed on my phone about my flight I was happy that finally someone cared enough to find me a flight for what I had already paid for."
Cons: "If I had KNOWN that I could stay at the airport (everyone was sleeping everywhere lol) then I would have not paid the $100 extra to only have a 1 hr & 20 min layover instead of a 15 hr layover. Because with possibilities of issues like I had as well as the plane leaving early there’s too much stress. Plus I was almost STUCK in the airport because I didn’t have $1000. The insurance I bought did nothing for me because they said I missed the flight (although the flight left early) UGH"
Pros: "I like they that they actually serve a small meal on board and the inflight service much better than US airlines. Service in the air is excellent!"
Cons: "Ground service not the most efficient. Especially rude was the darker complexion lady in charge of boarding the flight at the counter on NOV 19 at 12:35 pm flight from Miami to Mexico City. She needs to be repremended or closely observed on her customer skills. I fly a lot and don’t come across to many like this lady."
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but connecting through Mexico City airport is troublesome and time consuming. Mexican authorities make everyone go through a long line at customs. Since we checked in through Delta in San Antonio, we did not have a boarding pass for the Lima portion. , We had to exit into the main concourse to get our boarding pass. At that point we were on standby for seats and barely made our connection."
Cons: "that my ticket was managed by Just Fly when the Kayakpage said that the ticket is Aeromexico's. I will not use Just Fly anymore and Kayak risks me going directly to Aeromexico or other airlines if they are not transparent with the vendor."

Cons: "I do not have any negative feedback about this travel. I felt good about it"
Pros: "The fly was good."

Cons: "No spacefor carry on bag"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Dinner was terrible"
Cons: "Rude staff. Airline doesn't respect its own carry-on bag policy. I was forced to leave my bag at the door despite being one of the first on the plane. Seats very close together -- my knees were up against the seat in front of me all night."
Pros: "Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Mexico City lounge was terrible as their key hub , the wife and food was bad so I went to the hsbc lounge as I am a vip there was well"

Pros: "The ticket counter heavy set with black hair, I think her 1st or last name start with "JA" is very very ride and unprofessional. In the middle of taking care of me and my wife he walk away and said., I'm going to the back, let someone else take care of you. Please call me to get the full detail @ 954-501-5998 or email: email@example.com"

Cons: "Boarding was delay. I spent 25 minutes making a line"

Pros: "First class"
Cons: "Seats no that comfortable"
Pros: "1. Food was and drink was decent 2. In flight entertainment was good 3. Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "1. Flight was delayed over an hour due to flight crew arriving late 2. Paid for a premium seat and space was just as cramped as a non premium seat 3. Boarding was a free for all no control by staff for boarding zones.. Also when are airlines ever going to learn to board passengers from the rear to front first? 4.

Pros: "Puntuality the most"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. Crew okay. No space"

Cons: "Really, all! Money grab low cost airline! The worst experience ever!"
Pros: "I first thought the price/value was good; however, I had to pay to check in, I had to pay for my bags, I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Staff at the airport"
Cons: "I didn’t know that you had to check in at least two hours before the flight. Had to purchase another one later in the evening. Staff at information at the airport were incredibly helpful!"

Pros: "Efficient crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Children should not be seated in emergency rows— this delayed our flight almost an hour."
Pros: "I arrived safely in Bogota."
Cons: "Having to PAY to check in at the airport, having to PAY to carry on a bag... this is ridiculous. What seemed a bargain at first glance ended up costing me WAY more than buying a more comfortable airline with more amenities. They are the Spirit Airlines of Colombia. Avoid them."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."
Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."
Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"
Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."
Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."
Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."
Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."
Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"
Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."
Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."
Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."
Pros: "Fast, good service."
Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."
Pros: "Just shat you expect from a low cost airline company"
Cons: "NO me gusto que cancelaran el vuelo y el plan de contingencia fuera simplemente irnos 6 horas despues donde hubiera disponibilidad. La falta de comunicación, la falta de gestión con las personas, la falta de información incluso en el call center"
Pros: "Lor cost carriers have to be fast and efficient, this flight was just so. The seats are quite good."
Cons: "The boarding line was too long and slow."
Cons: "They asked me to pay a $15USD tax to enter Colombia. This was never mentioned at any stage of the booking process. I had to withdraw money at an ATM with its associated fees just so I could pay this so called entry tax that neither I or anybody else seems to heard of and, even though I'm an Australian citizen, and we don't need a visa to enter colombia. I flew with VivaColombia twice, the first time I received a boarding pass with I printed out, but for my second flight, I never received a boarding pass email, just an email that said online check-in is not available for this flight and to print attached eticket and take it to the check-in counter at the airport, when I did this they asked for around $10usd to print out my boarding pass."
Pros: "El precio"
Cons: "El avion es muuy incomodo, mido 1,75 y mis piernas van completamente pegadas al asiento de al frente, el proceso de Checkin en Bogota, es un desastre, muy pocas personas, se nota que no estan bien capacitadas."
Pros: "The flight crew were great! Very attentive and polite."
Cons: "The check in desk staff are rude and left my luggage behind. Fingers crossed they find it."
Cons: "Entertainment on board Reclining seats"
Cons: "Prices very afordable"
Pros: "Safe flight, clean planes, relatively on time"
Cons: "I'm still not over the fact that they don't have blankets available (not even for a charge, which you would pay when you are freezing and uncomfortable) or that you have to pay over $65 round trip just to take one piece of medium-sized luggage with you on an INTERNATIONAL trip. That's just inhumane."
Pros: "Nothing at all there was horrible every time you ask somebody to help you they pull it you to someone else then they wait all day for someone that didn't even show up the service sucked the people were nice but the service sucked"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay for my room when I save money to go to Peru and I had to pay for my room because they told me it was a g import then they told me to go to the 8 then they told me to go to f then I had to go right back around and go back to H which took me hours to get through the checkpoint then when I get there they tell me that my planes gone when they said they call me I looked on my caller ID I had no phone this phone call from no Airline needed in my wife now she's in Peru by herself and I'm stuck in Fort Lauderdale Florida and she's all the way in Peru then I have no way of getting to her now y'all told me I got to wait till Wednesday to come it's ridiculous"
Cons: "Got stranded in Ft Lauderdale because of "crew" problems, which ate up 2 days of a holiday weekend . The money I thought I was saving was not worth the agravation."
Pros: "I liked that I was given a refund for the flights I purchased."
Cons: "My experience with Spirit airlines was one for the books (in a very bad way). First off, my flight to the airport where my flight with Spirit was, arrived an hour and twenty minutes before my next flight left. When I got in line to check in, I realized that I was supposed to check in at the kiosk first, before getting in line. Once I got to the kiosk, however, it wouldn't let me check in because it was 12 minutes after the "45 minutes prior to flight" deadline. After this, I went to the front desk where the woman told me I would not be able to board the flight because I was too late for check-in (which is rediculous; I was 12 minutes late for being 45 minutes early, and I was only late because I didn't know I was supposed to check in at the kiosk first. poor communication!). At this point, she sent me over to another counter to get it sorted out. At this counter, the gentlemen told me the next flight to Lima would leave the next day at the same time. He booked me a flight, but then let me know that I would have to purchase another flight out of Peru to show that I wasn't staying. This is preposterous. I've never had to do that before with any other airline. On top of this, he also let me know that my wife and I would only be able to take one bag each instead of the three we had. This was just the cherry on top of an already awful situation. So we would either have to leave a bag there (out of the question) or buy another $600 ticket just to set our bag in a chair next to us (yeah right!). I was very disappointed. You'd think that that's something the airline would tell us ahead of time since it's only on flights to Lima that they do this. Terrible communication. In the end, we were forced to book another flight with a different airline. Luckily, they did refund us for the $500 we spent on that flight. However, we spent another $500 each to book new flights. That's $500 we had to spend because of Spirit being a lousy airline that communicates very poorly and causes it's guests to suffer for it. My wife and I just got married a couple weeks ago. Spending an unnecessary $500 wasn't exactly in our budget as newlyweds. Not only did we have to spend this extra chunk of cash, but we also had to spend an extra night sleeping on the floor at the airport. Overall, it was a downright nasty experience. Aside from just being an awful experience, this is just a horrible way to treat people. We suffered as a direct result of Spirit's poor communication with it's customers. This didn't need to happen. It shouldn't have happened. It could have easily been avoided. We suffered a lot at the hands of Spirit airlines. I have every right to sue them for the damage they caused us (both financially and emotionally). Spirit caused us a great deal of harm and stress, and we deserve to be compensated for it. If we don't see some kind of gesture of goodwill from this Airline, they will not only lose one customer for life, but my friends."
Pros: "I liked the ease during boarding. During the flight the captain gave many weather and arrival time updates, which I appreciated."
Cons: "I didnt know my carry on luggage wasn't included in my ticket price. I didn't find out about the $50 luggage charge each way untill I checked in online. Seat selection is also another $7 to $18 each way when I wanted to choose where I sat. No complimentary drink was included. No headrest tv or movies. To be honest I would have gladly paid the extra $150 towards my ticket to go through less hassle during check in, not pay for seat selection, have a meal and a tv during the 5 hr flight. I will not fly with this airline again. I wish I would've been notified of the fees before I purchased my ticket."
Pros: "Flight crew was very professional despite several difficult passengers."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence, but that was hard to avoid. Several passengers displayed rudeness toward the flight crew."
Cons: "They canceled all my flights and I flew on another airline"
Pros: "The seats on this flight had just slightly more leg room than the previous plane and that inch made a huge difference. The crew was just lovely."
Cons: "Boarding the group 1 passengers was weird because they didn't give us enough time to line up and all the other passengers lined up way in advance, making boarding kind of slow, but it's not a big deal."
Pros: "Hope it's not late too"
Cons: "Charge the carrier not good .."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I reached my destination at 2am thanks to the delay."
Cons: "Our plane Our flight was 3 hours late because they changed the plane due to "tech problems" when we really know it was because the plane it's self was too large for only 51 people so they swapped them out making us all wait. Spirit flight attendants would give you a glass of water even if you were chocking. That's gotta change, at least offer your guests water and a blanket because your plans are freezing cold!"
Cons: "Again, same as first flight. I haven't flown with Spirit in a long time. I forgot the reason I don't is because ticket prices may be low but you pay for literally everything which makes the prices pretty much equal to Delta or any other better airline. It was only comfortable because I paid so much extra for seats. If I buy a ticket, seat number should be included. Kinda common sense on that one. What food? I had to pay for it if I wanted a meal. A flight this long should have included a meal. I had the extra task of making sure I already had a meal with me upon boarding. Ummm......there was no entertainment either."
Pros: "Nothing. You will pay for Everything. From being able to eat to get your luggage. Horrible"
Cons: "All was bad. Do not use this company. They need to change their way they do business. Horrible"
Cons: "Rush between flights, delay in getting my bags, one bag missing."
Pros: "Your service and price. For short and quick trips good service."
Cons: "Additional charges for everything else including the air we breathed (kidding). Additional charge for luggage too pricey."
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Had to cancel it."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "charging money for luggage"
Cons: "Got delayed"
Pros: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "It never happened - see above."
Cons: "Only use spirt if you have no bags and no money...that's what I was left with..."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "flt was cxld"
Cons: "Not charge for luggage"
Pros: "every thing was very good"
Cons: "The airplanes need deep cleaning"

Pros: "The price of the ticket or fare"
