Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fast boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t as attentive. While my first flight (I had a layover) seemed extra attention and care was put into the cleanliness and order due to Covid, second flight seemed to be a little overcrowded."
Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."

Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?"
Pros: "Food good"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Plane too cold."
Pros: "Quick boarding, great seats and everything went on schedule."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"
Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Everything in 1 class"
Pros: "They did take care of the situation in a timely manner and switched my flight were I made it in my time line . Switched to American from Atl. to Houston"

Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly boarding etc."
Cons: "Because of packed flight many of us had to check our luggage. Not horrible, but slightly annoying. As well as taking a long time to de-plane."
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Pros: "Having status. Always on time. They run their schedules like European trains."
Cons: "They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage"
Pros: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get on a later flight this was a very good one"
Cons: "The cancellation of original flight was stressful as I had a wedding to attend and the long delay and subsequent cancellation of original flight prevented me from it. Further, I was forced to get local transport after arrival in FLL, since I missed my ride altogether."
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat even though I bought my ticket a while back. Seat assignments were given at the gate and we were never given a real reason for this. I ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between people, and the man at the end slept the entire time, making it difficult to get up and walk around which I need to do as I am prone to DVTs."
Cons: "lost mom's glasses"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "No beverages! I should be able to purchase a can of beer! I am willing to pay the outrageous cost of $8 for one can and still not able to do that! Ridiculous and I believe they are using the virus excuse to save money !"

Cons: "Attitude of flight attendant"
Cons: "More room I pay for main cabin It feels it was just the regular"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"

Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"

Cons: "It was an hour + late. A trip I took from Washington two weeks before was late in both directions."
Cons: "No yves on the plane like delta. Flight delayed 5hrs"
Cons: "Gate personnel was not as accommodating. Didn't seem like they wanted to help."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Painful. Since the airline industry can't seem to get people (morons) to check their bags, why not have people who DO NOT have carry ons seated in the front, and those who refuse to check their bags seated in the back. That way, those of us who can just stand up and walk out can get out the way and those who have to struggle with retrieving their bags don't hold us up ???? It wouldn't slow the slow pokes down and it would let get out of the way."
Pros: "Nothing unexpected happened"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I was so comfortable I slept - I never sleep while traveling"

Cons: "Still waiting to get on it"
Pros: "That I was still able to get to PA, even though I had to go to a different airport."
Cons: "Because I had to go to a different airport (supposedly there were no other flights into Allentown until the next day), I had to get a car rental, (which at that point did not get a discount for reserving on internet), and mysteriously one of our bags ended up in Allentown anyway. Which was a nightmare."

Cons: "At the airport before collecting my boarding pass I was told to pay additional $25 for te baggage I was carrying! Am an international traveler and asked for an exception to be made for the waiver of that fee as I couldn't figure that out while booking my ticket online, the information was so poorly reflected on the website! Spoke to a supervisor on duty and she was extremely rude and terrible as far as listening was concerned! Maybe people can be more human during such times, listen and take some feedback rather than stating a loud no and asking straight away to pay?"
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Crazy late. No plans of flying w them again."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "The boarding in Orlando could have been smoother or they would have let us board sooner and we were a little late arriving."
Pros: "It was fast and nice."
Pros: "There was nothing to like the experience was horrendous from beginning to now and it’s still not over."
Cons: "The lack of empathy from the employees, the lack of professionalism from the company itself, the lack of organization from the company and employees. My flight to Boston was delayed which then resulted in me missing my flight to Panama. Upon boarding the flight from Boston to FLL the flight attendant said I would miss my connecting flight to Panama, but when I arrived to FLL I was told I would have had plenty of time to make my flight. Following these events my luggage was misplaced and is still missing, I had no other choice but books a hotel to stay the night until the next flight to Panama which is at 11 P.M. tonight which is coming out of pocket and expense I feel should be covered by the airline. To add insult to injury I was just informed that I would have to check out by 12 Noon today even though my flight isn’t until 11 that same evening"

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."
Cons: "Every thing never again"
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"

Pros: "Boarding process was speedy"
Cons: "Expensive baggage prices, also having to pay to choose a seat"
Pros: "The planes are small which is great"
Cons: "Bag fees are WAY to expensive."
Cons: "Legroom was ridiculously limited and I am short...only 5 foot 2 inches...can't imagine what taller people do. Couldn't believe all the add on fees...baggage cost and weight restrictions both ridiculous"
Pros: "One of the attendants complimented me on my tan."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Cons: "If you could control the rain when people are walking to and from the terminal that would be awesome."
Pros: "Agents are very nice"
Cons: "You had to paid for everything"
