The cabin was comfortable and the crew did their job efficiently. Nothing stood out to impress me.

The after ours was overbooked, so they boarded us andand made us wait until they could find 3 volunteers which took a decent amount of time. We were also not informed of this until we had already been sitting there waiting. After our flight left the gate we then had to sit and wait to take off because we missed out time slot to fly into Philly. It wasn't terrible but could have been handled better. It was very uncomfortable for myself and even more uncomfortable for a friend with osteoporosis and compression fractures in her back.

All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !

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!

Great crew. Very friendly. -- Ontime boarding and good flight. - The flight back left and arrived earlier than scheduled. Exceptional treatment by the crew on the way back. They asked if I minded moving up front to an extended seat to allow to people to sit together. -- I got a more comfortable seat up front and the flight attendant kept thanking me for me flexible. -- Very appreciated to them

More up front knowledge about the true cost of the flight. -- Seat selection and carry on costs let to an an additional $82. -- $6 each way for selecting a preferred seat I can stomach, but not $35 for a carry on. -- Very disappointed in that

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.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
