Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight...

We were canceled (our flight in Newark) were herded around like cattle and then left to fend for ourselves .. With no apologies .. We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful..

I had heard that Spirit cancels a lot of flights. My KC to NYC flight via Detroit was seamless there and back. Staff was pleasant and efficient.

Seats don't recline and could have used some cleaning, but for a short trip without a lot of luggage I will use Spirit again.

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.

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.
