Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all."
Pros: "Horrible delay with unruly customers on the plane. But the flight attendants did great handling them"
Cons: "Delay on flight and providing beverages while waiting for 6 hours"
Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Pros: "Horrible storms kept us in the air for at least an hour past our scheduled landing time. And yet we experienced virtually no turbulence. The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "Crew, as always, excellent. The people of delta are what keep you coming back."
Cons: "Flight was delayed (for no reason) for more than two hours, with no speak whatsoever about it"
Cons: "It could have left on time or they could have told us they weren’t leaving and let us get some sleep."
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "I have flown with Delta for a number of trips now. I seem to receive middle seat allocations even with the freqent flyers partnership with Virgin Velosity program shared."
Cons: "My seat allocation."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Great food and service in first class"
Cons: "Water waiting on table on arrival"
Pros: "The food and the treatment"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"
Cons: "Crew was pretty short with everyone and not Delta’s best - not sure what the story was. Gate staff were allowing people to cut queue lines left and right - why even have the zones lined up if not going to enforce?"
Cons: "Bought a brand new suitcase and Delta staff broke one of the wheels!"
Pros: "Every thing good"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The boarding process doesn't make sense. My seat assignment was changed for no reason, and I didn't have a say in it. I was put further back on the plane. Not happy about that."
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "My bag was damaged when I arrived at Orlando."
Pros: "Short comfortable flight.. good entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Everything was good with this flight.."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Cons: "It was just so late."
Cons: "Hire people that don’t hate the job ."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and did the best it could with what is given to them."
Cons: "No space, super gathered, big chance of spread. Delayed take off"

Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "Really professional. Nice service."
Cons: "Lost a bag."
Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."
Cons: "Delayed for like 12 hours.... I ended up just going home! This flight was important to me and it's sad the service I got. Crew didn't even offer water when we were in plane for 3+ hours. We we're in the plane with no ac. Huge dissapointment"
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Almost got diverted to Tampa by thunderstorms, but this was not United's doing."
Cons: "I had very little time to make my connection in Newark. Other airports/airlines have given me a short connection pass which has allowed passengers to make their connection with less stress. The security line inNewsrk was ridiculous. I spoke to a TSA agent who couldn’t have cared less if I missed my flight and a United representative who told me to “just try.” In the end, I had to ask other passengers if I could go ahead of them. While I made my flight with a few minutes to spare, the process could have been much easier and the United Rep could have done more. He could have just called the gate at the very least to let them know I was coming. Apathy is not an indication of good customer service."
Cons: "There was no free in-flight entertainment available on the tv screens. Half of the screens didn't work. The seat belts were not long enough to accommodate the passenger sitting beside me. The space for my personal item was smaller than the other flight."
Pros: "I had no problems the gate agent was very nice and I did get the basic economy which that only did I have to pay for my bags but I also got the last seat in the back in the corner which is OK I guess I’ll pay more attention to the fair I still probably saved a little money but I don’t know that I save that much I think that sometimes the boarding agent needs to pay attention to the carry-on luggage for sure bring a lot carry-on luggage which doesn’t allow for others to have carry-on luggage who were in the later groups and then they get penalized with their bags being checked as there’s no more room and they’re not basic economy but other than that I like taking United they have nonstop service between Orlando in Houston and it’s been a wonderful experience most of the time and I think the airlines do a pretty good job considering the traveling public themselves to be very challenging at times professionalism and courtesy works both ways and unfortunately people buy tickets and think that it’s a one-way street. they then run to the media who loves to make it about the big guy versus the little guy anyway good job united and I will continue to fly you when you’re the most appropriate carrier to get me to where I want to be."
Cons: "Nothing I just need to pay more attention to my ticket purchase I didn’t realize it was a basic economy until after I bought it which meant I had to pay for my bags which added $50 to my fair which wasn’t that big a deal but then I got a seat all the way the back in the corner which really wasn’t that bad either but if I went to Carrynon a bag I was allowed to do so"
Pros: "The jet did not crash."
Cons: "Boarding, staff, instructions, overpriced everything"
Pros: "Got in my seat and took off right on time. Courteous welcoming staff as we boarded and deplaned."
Cons: "The servers serving drinks and snacks, never smiled never said your welcome...maybe having a bad day? Sucks we have to pay to watch anything on tv. We pay enough at least let's us have two hours of entertainment."
Pros: "It was very good"
Cons: "Not accommodating"
Cons: "Rude ticket counter staff."
Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Pros: "Suitcase arrived at the carrousel on time , much better than Houston."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Pros: "Clean Aircraft. Fantastic Gate Agent."
Cons: "Flight boarded, no auxiliary power unit so no A/C in plane and Pilot unable to start aircraft engines. Stuck in aircraft away from gate for 30 min with no A/C. Finally moved to gate to wait for repairs and allowed to disembark. Flight 2 hours late to Orlando. Direct TV no audio in seat 11F entire flight and I WAS TRYING TO WATCH THE WORLD SERIES!"

Cons: "No crying babies"
Cons: "The fees for the baggage are ridiculous"
Cons: "Bags got lost"
Cons: "Getting off the plane my stroller wasn’t there. Then I was directed to 3 different places before I could find it near the baggage area. The reason I had the stroller... to help me Navigate an airport with little children. Totally defeated the purpose. Never again frontier. You all suck"

Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Perfect landing in difficult winds"
Cons: "I wasn't happy to hear that Frontier charges for everything. I also hated that because I was 5 minutes late to checking in, because apparently after 45 minutes you aren't supposed to check in. So they charged me $40 for a carry on, that I couldn't even get checked in."
Pros: "Felt like u were in a sardine can !"
Cons: "Sucks they changed me for everything ."
Pros: "Great flight. On time. Cheap. Love it"
Pros: "The seats don't recline but there is sufficient leg room for a six foot guy like me. There is no in flight entertainment of any kind. The selection of snacks and beverages was nice. While checkin online, I had to pay to select my seats which I found ridiculous."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and engaging. The airplane was brand new, only three weeks old. This is a no frills airline that nickel and dimes you on everything though, from seating to carry-on bags. A minimum of $16 to as much as $50 just to select a seat that you have already paid for?!? And $40 for a carry-on bag. Several people were pulled out of the boarding line because they had not paid for backpacks that Frontier considers a carry-on bag."

Pros: "Really good experience"
Pros: "Everyone were really nice. The service was good."

When other customers had larger bag and they were not charged. The bag was small enough to fit under the seat. I should be re-enburse the $35.00 I was charged. Thank you"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "I payed for your big chairs in the front and they didn’t recline back at all. Spirit, your seats suck as well as all you feed for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "All was excellent"
Pros: "It’s ok"
Cons: "It’s ok"
Pros: "Crew were polite, but one did not take her time to look at every passenger when picking up the last trash. She walked by us very quickly without looking at all. When I asked if I could give her our trash when she was on her way back to her seat, she said, “we’re all done now, sorry” and she kept walking. The pilots did a wonderful job during take off, during our flight and landing! We’re all blessed for such a safe flight."
Cons: "Zone 4 appears to be the largest zone to board the plane and did in fact take the longest. I think the zones could be broken up better and should be so that apart from the benefit of boarding early, the rest of the paying passengers don’t have to wait for long periods of time to board, our satisfaction should matter too. Also, my 5 year old was super sad and disappointed that the flight did not serve snacks (even though we ate while waiting at the gate for our flight to arrive). He looks forward to the snacks that many airlines serve aboard. Just thought I’d mention that."
Cons: "The service it poor they dont not were they at i have to wait 10 hrs to fly when i was all ready to go to my detinetion hey don't know were it my logger"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3+ hours and no compensation was provided."
Cons: "No reclining seats"
Cons: "I was not aware of a carry on check in fee much less was i ready for the ridiculous amout! $55 at the kiosk. On top of that you cannot use cash, so you have to spen another $5fee for a temptation car which isn’t reloadable. I ended up spending $120 in fees i wasnt aware of, this amounts to a whole trip ticket on it own pretty much! Just ridiculous!"
Pros: "It was smooth"
Cons: "Baby crying"
Cons: "Got told that the flight was being delayed 3 different times and three different reasons why!!! Then after 3 hours finally talked to someone at customer service and got switched to another flight. After that was told that the ticketing counter would give us a hotel voucher since the flight was leaving the next morning and the supervisor said we could get a voucher because she wasn’t the one who helped!!! HORRIBLE!!!"
Cons: "Bad parents. With crying toddler."
Cons: "The Spirit mobile app and website are terrible - I intentionally booked on Kayak due to the difficult and way too busy Spirit website."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and then cancelled after we waited for 2 hours after boarding the plane."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, got there early, and has no problems whatsoever."
Cons: "Spirit is know for low costs, but seat which do not recline are awful for planes."
Pros: "No delay. Clean. Comfortable. Very kind crews."
Pros: "Price! Crew!"
Cons: "When I got off the plane at Irlando Airport, someone had parked a wheelchair Just around a corner, so it was invisible till you turned the corner. Jostled by the crowd trying to get to baggage claim, I took the Corner staying close to the wall, hooked a foot in the wheel chair and started to go flying but managed to stay upright."
Cons: "The entire experience made me feel ok I was in a Walmart shoppers video and I'm not talking about the good ones"
Pros: "Hotel stay"
Pros: "The flight attendant were very friendly and playful. Excellent attitude."
Cons: "4 and a half hour delay. Scheduled 8pm, took off 12:30am. So, we got no sleep the whole night."
Pros: "We got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Reason's why I rated each category poor: Overall - see below categories Boarding - We were told that our bags did not count as personal items, and we had to either pay $130 to carry on two bags or throw them away. Basically, "Have a nice trip, let me start by robbing you." Crew - During the flight, I used the on-flight lavatory. As is normal in most flights, there's no space between the last row of passengers and the mini-room at the back of the plane. To keep from putting my rear in another passenger's face, I stepped into the mini-room until the stewardess commanded that I wait behind the "silver line." Sorry other passenger. At the least be courteous about your command with me and/or the passenger who had to sit in the rear (pun intended). Comfort - No seat back storage, and the flight was as cold as is bearable for the average person. Food & Entertainment - None available. Upon asking for water, we were instead offered ice."
Pros: "The ease of checking in and being able to select my own seat"
Cons: "The aircraft was a little too warm for my comfort"
Pros: "You get what you pay for.... or less."
Pros: "The chairs at the gate were the best part, of waiting for another plane and watching the same lady that works for spirit arguing almost fighting physically with passengers in Houston TX"
Cons: "They gave me the wrong boarding pass, then I was still on time and they wouldn't let me on the plane, then the lady that takes the boarding passes was arguing with everybody, very rude and mean to customers. Now I have to wait 15 hours to get to Orlando! Never again and never recommend spirit!"
Cons: "Let's just say my spirit wasn't lifted by Spirit Air. I remember that we had a terrible landing on a cloudless sunny day. Pilots seemed inexperienced. A $55 carry on fee seems excessive and makes me not want to fly again. I take two business trips a month and have flown almost every airline in Europe but this was my worst flight in ages."
Pros: "Price was okay but went up $50 from the time I found till the time I checked out."
Cons: "Baggage fee was a total rip off. The seats don't recline and there was no wings on headrest so when you looked around everyone had their head against the seat in front if they had to sleep, I had to do the same. If you wanted anything to drink including water there was a fee so I just flew thirsty. fair was unavailable by the time I was trying to pay and that upped me another $50."
Pros: "Left on time.Arrived on time"
Cons: "Overpriced for the "minimalist" design. Garbage crew, ripoff prices. Do not recommend using Spirit. Ever."
Pros: "Flight was not near capacity, so we were able to move around the cabin to find more open seating. Crew was more than nice"
Pros: "We left on time and staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Everything is extra. Carry on is more expensive than checking a bag. It costs WAY more to do this at the airport and they gotcha'd loads of people on this. not even drinks were included and it was THE smallest legroom I've ever had on a flight. Oh, and no reclining seats. It's a budget European model and I cannot emphasize how much it should not be allowed to take hold in the US. Lastly, pre check info cannot be entered online."
Pros: "On time and easy checking..."
Cons: "Seats could be wider and more padded."
Pros: "Low cost, no frills, affordable"
Cons: "No knee room"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Paying for seat, baggage and food, boarding"
Cons: "Spirit service"
Pros: "On time and courteous ."
Cons: "Have to pay extra for everything including carry on bag and drinks. Cheap flight not so cheap when you add on extras. Try to get you to pay extra for seating. No food or entertament provided so can't rate those."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had plenty of leg room as I was in the exit row."
Cons: "The flight took off late. We arrived back late. The baggage claim took almost an hour to get my bag. To check one small bag cost an unreasonable $52. The bag drop line took too long as well."
Cons: "website is set up so that it is difficult to include luggage and other add-ons and you have to get them after you have a reservation costing you an even higher rate. At check in on our return we were told that there is no guarantee of our reservation unless we purchased a seat location. Minor detail - the pilot didn't show up for our flight causing significant delay. Next time if no other airline is available we will take a bus."
Pros: "The extra cost for the larger seats in the first row is worth it."
Pros: "Although, still not much room, as in all airlines, I do like the fact there is no reclining. The seats are comfortable in their position, and not having someone in your lap is nice."
Cons: "I understand the need to keep the cost down on flights. But $3 for a can of soda is a bit high. At least break even. You win, we win . I feel music of some sort could be provided to block out crying babies, & loud passengers."
Cons: "the youngster behind me kept poking into my seat back"
Cons: "It was cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "Landed on time."
Cons: "Very late boarding."
Pros: "It got me there. The trip was arranged late, so it was good just to get a ticket. I've been on worse--but that was IndiGO in India."
Cons: "Check-in at kiosk not intuitive (nice person helped). What's "buy" a bag? I bought a bag from Samsonite; Spirit is just charging a fee to carry it. All hard surfaces inside the aircraft, so sound wasn't dampened--so noisy it was unpleasant; squalling baby noise seemed to reverberate through the cabin. Flight scheduled at lunchtime, but the closest thing to decent food on board was a bag of nuts. Didn't know it was possible to call something so little a "tray table", or a bungee cord a "seat pocket". It was an Airbus, so made weird sounds--luggage bins vibrated so badly during descent that people put their hands up to try to stop the shaking."
Pros: "I booked my flight thru kayak with out realizing the airline i was flying was spirit, I've heard a lot of bad comments about that airline, the crew was amazing they make everyone feel welcome."
Cons: "Well i used kayak and like i said it was my first time flying spirit so i didn't known i have to pay for my seat i think kayak should of let me know that."
Pros: "Going through Kayak I received notifications that helped keep me informed. Especially when the gate changed 6-8 times on my way home."
Cons: "The crew to Orlando were not stellar. They weren't exactly what you would consider rude but they certainly were NOT friendly. The space was tight which I expected but the seats were uncomfortable. I didn't dare buy anything because just my checked bag was $80 round trip BEFORE I got to the airport. Forget picking seats....I always checked in 24hrs ahead online and both times I was in the very back of the plane. Spirit airlines is perfect for a budget and a quick trip. I was flying out for a funeral. I can't say that I would fly them again. To fly my family and keep my young children with me, I'd be better off flying United. Eventually the ticket price would be the same, but better service and better choices, and some entertainment."
