Flight attendants had very good attitudes and personalities.

Seat had a bar sticking into my back end. Felt like I was back on a C-130 in the web seats. Also sure if the heat was broke but once again felt like a military flight and should have worn my long johns while traveling to California.

I like the price of the flight, and the fact that I can add on and pay for what I need when it comes to luggage. I always travel light and not having to pay for bags that I won't need is nice. Having the option to choose is what i like the most. Other airlines are more expensive because they have these items included with your ticket

It was very clear the staff hate there job, every time I got with spirite I can see the crew looks like they hate what they do, customer service is never a priority with them. If they notice someone disturbing another passenger they really don't say anything.

Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it.

Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens

I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also.

Departure was right on time and we actually arrived 15 minutes early.

The inflight monitor worked but none of the data (GPS altitude or speed) was working.

I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!

The airport, before I got onto my flight. I'm glad spirit allowed me extra time to spend in the airport after the flight was delayed. Surprise.

All of it. What was advertised: cheap seats and you pay for everything (checked bag and even WATER). What wasn't advertised (or was, in flight): for fifteen+ minutes the crew was selling a spirit credit card over the intercom. BLARING IT. It woke me up. Why sell more things where your prospective customers can't escape listening to the sales pitch? Terrible terrible business.

I can't believe this is actually an airline. I felt like one of those people in a bus somewhere in South America in the rainforest with people and Chicken on their laps. Tons of screaming children, people up and down all the time, the flight attendants seem to not even care that they were there, filthy playing, dirty tray tables, seats don't recline, I could go on and on. One Step Up from riding a city bus.

We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag.

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,
