Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "The best other than the fact it was packed full lol but that’s not Deltas fault"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent. Friendly, helpful, kind — great attendants and crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"

Cons: "Flight attendant late arriving to his job causing a 30 minute delay in boarding. Desk staff at airport seemed more interested in their own conversations than helping passengers . Fight attendants seemed uninterested in their jobs and lacked warmth. 45 minutes late arriving in Kansas City no announcements from captain"

She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting on a hard metal bench with seatbelts. Oh and having to spend $50 for a second carry-on is ridiculous as is the $18 to pick a seat."
Pros: "That there was not an delays. That is all that I liked about this flight."
Cons: "when we were boarding the co pilot was on their cell phone and so were the flight attendants. Not one person said hello or welcomed us on board."

Cons: "you have to pay for basically EVERYTHING. At the end the flight LA Portla,d cost me more tha LA london....."
Cons: "Have you been screwed over by Spirit airlines? Have you noted how a carry-on costs over $40? Have you noticed that you can't check in on the internet without signing up for their website and giving them all your personal information? Have they suddenly and at the last hour delayed your flight by 4 hours without letting you know, and then claimed that they emailed you, when they didn't? Have you noticed that they don't allowed comments to be posted to their facebook page (because they'd get nothing but bad comments). On top of that, when I got to the front counter, where I was told that my flight was delayed 3 hrs (thanks for not texting ir emailing me about it), I asked the guy at the counter to check and see if I was still on the flight. He confirmed that I was. But when we started boarding, my ticket no longer worked and he could not find me on the flight list! Wtf??? I almost got left out of th plane because of what???"
Pros: "Easy booking and website"
Cons: "A lot of people were out of seats during plane travel to stand around and chat which made it uncomfortable having people hover over me when I was trying to sleep"
Cons: "$57 per checked bag. Absolute rip off"
Pros: "I think the most entertaining part of our flight was the flight attendent. I don't know her name but she was hilarious and kept the flight fun. I personally do not like flying but I must say I enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "The seats are too small and there is not enough leg room."
Cons: "Extremely delayed flight, luggages arriving late. And the fact that you have to buy your own drinks on the plane."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours late to our destination after being de-planed once and delayed 4 times. Never flying Spirit again. This was strike 4."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."

Cons: "Spirit is horrible- do yourself a favor and spend more to fly with another airline"

Pros: "Easy boarding process and on timely flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I was forced to check-in my luggage even though I've always used this suitcase and I never check it in. I can accept 25$ for a check in, but 50$??"
Pros: "airline got me to LA - that's good"
Cons: "Pricing was really false. They charged $50 to check a bag. Had I known that, I would have taekn a United flight that would have been less overall. AND,,, you could easily end up paying $100 a bag, if you check yours at the gate, or something like that. so be careful. check their fine print. This airline's pricing scheme feels ilke a trap."
Pros: "Flights on time or early. Well organized boarding. Clean & new planes, & seemed roomier than the "big guy" airlines."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Everything costs from water to seats to carry-on bags to checked bags. By time you pay to get a seat and to either check or carry on a bag both ways, add $70 per person to fare. Helps if you bring your own snacks."
Pros: "Bad service"
Cons: "Bad service"
Pros: "Service., staff, size of plane inside.!"
Cons: "Some passengers didn't say 'excuse me' at all."
Cons: "Check in bags 50 USD was not clear"
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was, how smooth the take-off/landing was, how the flight was fairly short, how the lights were dimmed in order for the passengers to sleep on such a late night flight, and how short the flight seemed."
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy of just one personal item. I like when airlines give you one free carry-on and one personal item so you can have you purse or laptop bag or whatever separate from your luggage. I also didn't like how you had to pay for refreshments. It is always nice to have to option of 1 free beverage and maybe some pretzels when you're flying. Also, the seats are pretty uncomfortable, but that is not really something that can be fixed."
Cons: "-I'd rather pay more upfront than sit thought a 7hrour flight that doesn't even offer complimentary water to its passengers. -lacking reclining seats"
Pros: "Only that I made it to Atlanta!!!!!"
Cons: "i booked a one way ticket from Cali to Atl only for kayak to take 2 tickets to make my one way flt causing me to pay 2 baggage fees spirit said also when you get off in Vegas go get your bag the reboard no time for that so my bag cost more than the flt!!!!! So maybe no more kayak or spirit!! Thanks no help from either!!?"
Pros: "I was charged by Spirit $100 per carry on, there was no obvious note or warning for the charge when I checked in on line. I felt that I had been robbed $400 By spirit. The the service at the Oakland airport was terrible, the people working at the Spirit gate had very bad attitude, one of them was called Lavinia, worker ID 34448, and her coworker was horrible too, unfortunately I didn't get her name. I will not book spirit anymore."
Cons: "Nothing I liked about Spirit, it is the worst airline."
Pros: "The cost of the ticket was less expensive compared to other airlines. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "Luggage cost extremely high in comparison and No amenities."
Pros: "The pilot did a good job."
Cons: "The bag fees were more than the flight. The travel insurance that I purchased on Spirits website with the tickets, even though they had emailed me a copy of the policy, had no record of the purchase when I called them with a question. Spirits website lists the size limits of carry on bags and the fees. They explain that it's more at the gate. I paid in advance for my laptop bag after measuring it and finding it did not meet the requirements of free carry on. At the gate I found out the laptop bag would be no charge. Spirits policy? No refunds of course. Just a $90 credit if I ever use their crappy airline in the future. I requested and paid extra for seats that were not over the wing (my wife takes pictures). We were over a wing. I paid for early boarding. It was never called ( the attendant asked for passengers with special needs). In closing, I am very disappointed that Kayak would even associate themselves with these scam artists. Low cost has limits. It's still supposed to be a service industry. Spirit is atrocious, but I became entangled with them through Kayak. I wont forget that."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that every little detail cost money my flight started at 200. ended over 300. windsor ca to vagus i will never use spirit again and i will tell all me Friends to stay away"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat selection process, seat room/comfort, and flight crew. I'm 6'-4" and was put in the last row in the corner. I asked the flight attendant to check if there were other available seats and she rudely stated no. I physically could not sit in my seat. I found a free seat and moved."
Pros: "Easy, plane was clean. Super efficient"
Cons: "That you get nickel and dimed for everything"
Pros: "The extra charges are obscene and it wasn't like the original flight cost was even that cheap. $45 for a Carry on. And $100 for the same carry on if you forgot to pay in advance."
Pros: "everything but the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Dried throw-up on the seat back next to me, on the floor and in my seat belt. Also had to pay for my carry on."
Pros: "Baggage...toooo expensive to check. Seats are too narrow. No reclin I ng room or leg room Everything costs...even water and it wasn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "Everything from checking to landing. It was on time, friendly staff, clean plan.it's amazing. Airlines"
