Hugo Romero is the best flight attendant I've experienced in YEARS. He was friendly, informative and collected. He was personable and humorous. If only all attendants were like him!

No entertainment

United is a great experience and service provider. Orbitz servive is exemplary, in terms of ease of use and itinerary selections.

Seats were not equiped with recharge power options hence provision of WiFi service not very useful on a long flight.

Super snack bar on plane

Spirit is my last resort choice in airfare. I was charged $150 for an exit row seat a couple of months ago and I swore NEVER to use these people again. They ripped me off big time. I hate this airline but I didn't have all the $ for Jetblue at booking so out of desperation, I chose them again. The crew are great but that's it. No free snacks, ridiculously high baggage fees, no tv's...hardly any legroom. Just your bare bones airline.

Flew Copa Airline for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised.
