Pros: A flight that managed to get us to New Orleans, unlike DELTA who had no pilots. Great value for money, fantastic helpful staff

Cons: Slight delay and change in gate number

DTW
MSY
Okay 4.6

Pros: The price was reasonable and we were able to secure a non-stop flight to and from Detroit from New Orleans. Boarding went smoothly and flight attendants are mostly pleasant. Both flights departed on time and both arrived earlier than scheduled time.

Cons: The cramped seating, while expected, was especially difficult for my tall husband. Having to measure personal items and concerns about weight of checked bags was frustrating. I think adding a cost to everything seemed a bit excessive. Drinks and snacks were expensive also. Better to bring a snack and bottle of water with you.

Excellent 10.0

Cons: I wanted to purchase water with cash was unable. Did not want to use card. Next time I will make certain I bring my own drink.

DTW
MSY
Okay 4.3

Cons: the flight was delayed over an hour. When we finally pulled away we had to stop and go back because a luggage compartment door was not latched correctly. Then an engine light came on and we had to wait for a mechanic. Might be cheap but not worth dying for. A water costs $3. The check in process sucks. If you want to select a seat - even if it's the worst seat on the plane - you have to pay extra or get random seat assignment. Single flyers - who cares - families or groups just got nickle and dime'd. carry on bags cost $50 and checked bags $45. The only free bag is basically a computer satchel or small purse.

Pros: Great flight till we landed.......

Cons: Got here a half hr early but sitting here not going to terminal cause they say ppl can’t be walking to bathroom. But everyone is seated for 20 min and we still are NOT moving!! So when they report they got u here early it’s a bunch of BS!!!

Pros: The pilot told the passengers before the flight took off that there would be some turbulence. It was nice to know about it beforehand

Didn't know about all the price sticklers until after I bought my plane tickets, but once I knew the rules and we only packed one change of clothes into a small bag that we could carry on, everything else went smoothly.

Cons: No USB ports on the plane and no entertainment. I've never flown Frontier before so I asked the male Steward a couple of questions about the drinks (short bright from GEG to LAS) he was rude as if I should know the rules. So I simply got water which he filled one third of the way and that was it :-(

Okay 5.0

Pros: Flight was quick, good takeoff and arrived slightly early. Pilot tried to keep us informed.

Cons: There was a plane at our gate for over 50 min. after we arrived. We ended up at a different gate and had to sit on the tarmac for over 50 min. after arrival. That is just plain ridiculous. There were other terminals available. We should have been diverted to another gate to allow disembarking.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: After hearing only negative things about Spirit from everyone we spoke to we had very low expectations. We decides to chance it due to the schedule and price. While it wasn't a luxury experience, it was overall very reasonable. The boarding was well organized, the seats were fair, the overhead storage was reasonable and the flight was on time. We will definitely try Spirit again.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The flight from Honolulu to San Francisco was great! Staff was amazing. Trip was smooth and very enjoyable.

Cons: The flight from San Francisco to Washington was horrible. Terribly overcrowded and i wasn’t offered a thing until 40 minutes till landing. Then the flight from Washington to Chattanooga was delayed over 2 hours. Which i understand safety comes first but it made for a very long two day trip back from Hawaii.

Mediocre 3.6

Cons: I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
