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.

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.

Well, I had to stuff everything in my purse into my backpack to avoid paying a $50 luggage fee. In the process I lost my cell phone. Also got in too late to use MARTA to get home, so had to cab it. Whatever I saved by booking this excruciatingly long (but cheap) flight was lost in the details of no cell phone and no option to use public transit. But really, it's not Spirit's fault. I'm just telling you cuz you asked.

Admittedly, I had low expectations for a real no-frills airline. However, I was very pleased with the airline check-in staff as well as the flight crew. The agent at check-in was extremely polite and helpful and made sure my family had seats together. The flight crew was very polite. The flight went very smoothly.

While I did not expect any food or entertainment (i.e. video screens etc.), it would have been nice to include USB charging.

Crew was friendly, polite and professional.

Flight was delayed due to miscommunication around what terminal and gate the pilot was expected. This led to the following two connecting flights to be delayed as well. I was surprised none of the cabins had power outlets, which was a little inconvenient as there was no time between flights to charge electronics between flights because of the delays.

The flight was practically empty!

Paid for comfort, Delta offered free drinks to everyone. Unfortunately though the flight attendant did not bring us the alcohol we ordered and mixed 3 different kinds of whiskey into two glasses! We always are given our bottles separate from the mixer. Oh well. Did to being in so late it took us an hour to get a cab in Detroit.

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!

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.
