Scary aircraft was composed of three different types (from my immediate area) of seating; looked it was built from left over planes. Flight was 80 minutes delayed. Baggage fee is robbery. Lesson learned. Add on $45 to the flight price if you plan on bringing ANY luggage (carry on or check in) with you. Ends up not being cheaper than other airlines.

When I arrived at JFK after 14 hours long flight on Emirates, the service counter was understaffed with 1 hour long lines! Un-acceptable! Especially, since all I needed is to re-print my boarding pass, because US TSA would not accept the boarding pass printed by Emirates in India. The kiosk would not recognize my name on reservation! The kiosk did not recognize my recently issued US passport! Bloody annoying! Only able to print the pass after keying reservation code - yet, again not acceptable! The other, earlier attempts should have recognized me and found my reservation! Very upset with quality of service on the ground!

This was our first try using this airlines. Because the attraction of Spirit Air is the base price, the airline employees don’t go out of their way to please passengers in any other way.

Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations

The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes.

The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time.

Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated.

That we were delayed on the plane for two hours on a small plane but I know it was out of their control.

Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time.

Scary aircraft was composed of three different types (from my immediate area) of seating; looked it was built from left over planes. Flight was 80 minutes delayed. Baggage fee is robbery. Lesson learned. Add on $45 to the flight price if you plan on bringing ANY luggage (carry on or check in) with you. Ends up not being cheaper than other airlines.

Airplane was new and comfortable. The crew was friendly and helpful.

Being charged for the ability to choose a seat and bring a carry on bag makes Spirit less of a discount airline.

It took forever to get off the ground, but what would have made it less stressful or help with the impatient people is some sort of update or explanation instead of sitting in the hanger for over an hour.

The seats are hard and don't lean back. This was also the first economy seat I've ever sat in that didn't allow me to fully extend my legs, even though I'm 6'2". I probably couldn't do a flight any longer than the 1.2 hours that this one was without some major butt pain.

The seat.

The delayed of this flight. No explanation was provided. After boarding they decided to “fix” two of the luggage cabinets. And they fix nothing, they juat put tape on it. This flight delayed was three hour of nothing. My entertainment (screen) was damaged.

The flight attendants were very communicative and helped get us all boarded in time

The stress of possibly not getting off the ground in time and having a very long layover then taxing at the gate for over 30 minutes was frustrating

We missed our bus connection to NH due to the delay and since there were no rental cars or airport hotel rooms we sat for 9 hours waiting for the first bus. Exhausting.

I got upgraded to a Delta Comfort+ seat. This gives me more space and more comfortable.

Was not given a chance to select seats in advance. Also was not advised where I should go to get my boarding pass because there is no China Southern counter at Detroit airport.

Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one.

That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate

The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time.

Virtually no food options.

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,
