Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The atl to bwi leg was not great. No inflight entertainment and the aircraft looked old."
Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "On time and nice media"

Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"

Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"

Pros: "Excellent crew. Better drinks in comfort plus BUT NO SCOTCH!! Bummer."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable even in special comfort plus ( too thin)."
Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only.

Cons: "Noting all was great"

Cons: "Flight attends were slightly curt."
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was. All the attendance were helpful and always happy to help."
Cons: "I know this isn’t Kayak’s issue but American Airlines literally forgot to put fuel into the plane. We were delayed for over an hour and luckily I made my connection in Charlotte but only because they held the flight and it was not full. Had it been full I would have lost my seat."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."

Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."

The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, new plane"
Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"

Cons: "Purchased tickets for three of us weeks in advance. Purchased seat upgrades for all three of us for all four legs of our flight. Flight delayed for two hours. When boarding, one pass failed scan. They immediately printed another without comment. While in line to board my friend noticed they changed her seat from 4D to 36F. We returned to complain. They said that seat or middle seat in row 29is only choice. I said we paid for upgrade. They said to ask for a refund at LAX when landing at midnight. Asked passenger in 4D when he got his seat assignment - SAME DAY as flight, paid nothing for upgrade. I signed up for frequent flier program two weeks ago. Will be cancelling when card is received."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."

Onboard wifi is great, especially I can use my points to purchase wifi."

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."
Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"

Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"

Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so we ended up arriving about 40 minutes late. Not enough leg room which ends up making lots of people grumpy."
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Crew. The flight attendant in the forward cabin was rude and yelled at the passengers."
Cons: "Umm how about we were 3 hours late and missed out flight and had to spend $200 to rent a car at 1130pm and DRIVE 4 hours home? Not to mention we missed our connecting flight due to delays on United on the 16th! No food and no entertainment NOT HAPPY"

Pros: "Even though it was a bumpy flight do to strong winds, the pilot did his best to find smooth air"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out.

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "If United is going to shrink the seating space they should have a size limit to the space a 300 pound person can not fit in the seat that is economy - they should purchase a larger seat - I sat in a row with 2 large people and all they did was complain about the seat size - not there size....It awful...Please look into this for future... thank you"
Pros: "Other fliers helping get my luggage overhead, getting enough water"

Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"

Cons: "The flight was 3 hrs late ."
Cons: "They did not have the right equipment on hand to change one of the planes tires. Therefore, they continued to board and unboard the plane for several hours. They had to find an airport tire at another airport and have it driven over to our gate. We waited for over 7.5 hours in the airport and United gave us a "generous" $7.00 food voucher..."
Pros: "Got to airport, tried to check-in, and no reservation found. After 90 minutes airline found our reservation but we had already missed flight. Never has happened ever and airline was completely useless."
Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"
Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"
Pros: "Arrived 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "Even with an over 3 hour layover in Texas we missed out connection and had to stay over night in Texas. Adding $400 to our trip with dinner and room. Only 4 desks of 60 open at passport control and only 3 desks open at customs. All to process 7000ish people. Our tax $ at work."

Cons: "Gate checked bags took 15 minutes to get back"

Cons: "$2.00 water"
Cons: "Having to pay to check or carry on our bags and then not receiving any complimentary snacks drinks or entertainment was a travesty"
Cons: "Purchasing snacks, foods, even water or coffee on board makes travel somewhat inconvenient."
Pros: "On time, cheap."
Cons: "Everything costs extra. Even a cup of water."
Pros: "Price was cheap, but found out if you buy ticket at airport you can save even more money. Did not select seat and brought only a small bag that fit underneath seat so no extra charges. Departure and arrival were on time. Crew was nice. Only airline that flies into ACY."
Cons: "Seating is very tight even for an average size person. There were crumbs on seat and floor in our area . Have to buy even water, so bring your own."
Cons: "Charges for everything. To pick a seat on the plane 15, to check luggage 45, to print boarding pass 10 each. And the flight was delayed 7 times"
Pros: "Crew and staff very friendly. Web site very clear about extra charges which allows passengers to be proactive (print your boarding pass, know luggage limitations, etc)."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable. There was no entertainment. Food and beverage offered for a charge."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the plane inside was nice and clean."
Cons: "You couldn't recline your seat. Also you charge $50 for your first bag. It should be free."
Pros: "The plane was clean (looked new) and the crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "After having to pay to choose seats and paying over $400 in changes for luggage (2 people one carry on and one checked luggage each) we also had to pay for any beverage or snack on the plane. Also, apparently we didn't read carefully, though no one was able to point me in the correct direction, there is a limit to the weight on the checked luggage of 42lbs and we each were at 45lbs.... I'm aware of the 50lbs limit not 42. We had to over stuff our carry-ons after paying over $400 to even have checked luggage in the first place!! Otherwise we would have had to pay anther $100 for an additional carry-on. The seats are padded shells and, for long flights, can be uncomfortable. We ended up being over an hour late, there was no communication until the landing announcement."
Cons: "Baggage fees were drastic. Felt like a lot of milking of money from passengers."
Pros: "Easy tsa security. Very short."
Cons: "Window seat too small. Flight crew thought they were comedians. Too many stupid comments."
Cons: "Hidden bag fees were not disclosed And it created a very stressful trip. I have never heard of a company charging for carry on bags!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight that shed some time off of the expected trip."
Cons: "You have to buy standard beverage (ginger ale,etc.), they don't offer any sort of snack, and you have to pay for a carry on bag! All of this was despite having a three hour flight delay. There was no compensation for the inconvenience."
Pros: "On time and smooth ride"
Pros: "I was lucky in getting a seat at the front of the plance (4A) which was more comfortable that my previous flights where I sat more to the rear where there was less leg room. the departure was on time and the flight was very comfortable. courteous staff"
Cons: "my check on luggage cost $50 where I expected to pay $25. I now know to create an account for myself if making travel plans directly with Spirit."
Pros: "We arrive at airport to find they canceled flight do to weather?!? They told is the next flight is in 2 days! It's an absolute disgrace! It took 4 days for the reimbursement to show on my credit card. All other flights wit other airlines were booked or almost $1k for 1 way home! We rented a car and drove from Miami to NJ!!!"
Cons: "I found out a Facebook friends daughter was scheduled on out flight and she called up and was offered a seat on a layer flight that evening out of orlando!! We would have gladly drove to Orlando over nj. Kayak and Spirit have lost my business."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "They find a way to charge fees for everything, always delayed and terrible customer service"
Cons: "Plane engine was on fire so the flight got cancelled, told me I had to wait 4 days for a flight home to New Jersey, unless I went to and from a different airport (West palm to Fort Lauderdale). My transportation from the two airports was not compensated nor was the extra day of parking for my car, in Atlantic City, which I thankfully got a ride to from a friend, or that would have been another expense out of pocket."
Pros: "Overall value was very good, flight was smooth, seats were comfortable and crew was excellent."
Cons: "No TSA pre-screen, bags are 40, not 50 lb. minimum and the fee for overage is ridiculous. Had to wait to depart and then to gate at the destination due to "paperwork" issues. This easily made the trip 45 minutes longer than it should have been."
Pros: "Boarding was prompt and organized. Seats were relatively comfortable. Crew was average but cordial. They charge for everything separately but doing things beforehand online is easy and honestly less Hassel than at the airport."
Cons: "No drink, I know it's dumb but I want that soda..."
Cons: "flight cancellation"
Cons: "Flight to Florida was horrible. Flight back to Boston was canceled with no notice and they did nothing to help everyone find other flights. Missed an important meeting at work and all of my final review sessions for my law school finals. Will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "Baggage pick up was slow on both flights."
Pros: "A very good flight, room, and smooth!"
Cons: "Airplane made a constant barking sound during taxi before takeoff and after landing. Somewhat disconcerting."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min."
Pros: "Price was fair. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Jet Blue fair for Boston to West Palm Beach about 1/2 the price of Spirit Air for West Palm Beach to Boston! I was surprised they did not bill for extra breaths of air. Way to much emphasis on low cost, pay for only what you use when the fair was twice that of Jet Blue!"
Cons: "No kios to get boarding pass, 55. for each bag, no reclining seats, delays going both times...... not even a glass of water on a 3+ hour flight............ waiting over 45 minutes for bags I will never fly with Spirit again"
Pros: "excellent crew, good leg room, on time"
Cons: "seats don't recline at all, no free snacks, not even water baggage price is too expensive, no kiosk for check in"
Pros: "Plane was new (although seats don't decline)."
Cons: "These guys charge $50 per checked bag, charge you for water, charge you for snacks and get indignant when aren't interested in doing their job of cleaning up the cabin when you land. Also they take over the loudspeaker to market their Spirit Airlines credit cards and other partnership programs. And if you don't check your bag and it's determined to be "a carry on bag" they try to charge you $100 at the gate. Seats don't decline. No pockets in the seat back in front of you so you don't even have a place to store your magazine or book."
Pros: "DELAYED HALF AN HOUR AT THE GATE, THEN SAT ON THE PLANE FOR ANOTHER TWO AND A HALF HOURS. EXPLANATION WAS THEIR " COMPUTERS WEREN'T WORKING". TOOK OFF AFTER PILOT ANNOUNCED THEY HAD FIXED "ALMOST EVERYTHING". NO APOLOGIES, AND NOT EVEN A FREE BOTTLE OF WATER. THAT'S THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I FLY SPIRIT. INSULT TO INJURY? $90 TO CARRY ON A BAG ROUND TRIP!"
Pros: "The flight from Boston to Florida was fine."
Cons: "Trying to get back home, flights were continually cancelled after being at the airport. I didn't appreciate having to spend an entire day at the airport and also having to pay an extra $250.00 to take another airlines just to get home."
Cons: "Computers being down with zero information as to when our flight would be rescheduled."
Cons: "When my flight was cancelled they were not able to book my flight home for four days, so I had to cancell and book with jet blue"
Cons: "The departure was delayed by 6 hours"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then cancelled. Fortunately, I got my $$$ back."
Pros: "I liked that I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I did not like that we had to deplane without knowing when we would get back on the plane. Sat in the airport terminal (again) for hours waiting for information. Was given none. No in-flight entertainment. Extremely limited food options. No leg room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight was over 3 hours light. The computers were down and no one was any help."
Cons: "my bag was sent to nj. they have not found it no one returns my calls too bad they just don't care vacation no medicine no close no nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed then after a long wait it was canceled leaving me stranded in the airport for a day...they gave me no options othere than a new flight Tha next day.."
Pros: "the captain kept us informed of delay taking off and the reason."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, it said "on time" departure but that was not true. We left late."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 4 hours with the excuse of mechanical issues. No one even apologized for the inconvenience. I missed work as a result of the delay."
Pros: "The crew was personable and didn't make cheesy jokes about Spirit's reputation. The pilot made a perfect landing."
Cons: "Too many petty extra charges"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled. There was no food or drink provided and no other spirit airlines flights offered for more than 24 hours. We were told we could be refunded and we then chose another airline that could actually accommodate us after waiting inside the airport for 8 hours. Still have not seen the refund come through."
Pros: "Low fare."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. Spirit would not put me on another flight / airline. The only option was to take flight out on Monday, 2 days later or a refund. I would expect since it was notna cancellation Sue to weather, the airline would get me on another airline regardless of cost."
Pros: "Buying my ticket didn't actually buy me a seat, at the counter I had to pay for a seat and the cheapest was $11. It then cost me $50 to check a bag, which was the cheapest option because it would have been $55 to carry-on.... Attendant at counter was rude as well. Awful experience, 0 stars, won't fly spirit again."
Cons: "It charges for carry on 55$ and for checked baggage 53$. These weren't posted anywhere. The flight back was delayed for 3 hours and it never updated on the flight tracker. I ended up wastin a beautiful Florida beach day in the airport! Ridiculous. I hope they lose all of their business."
