Nice flight. No issues. Flight staff was great.

Front desk check in guy in Orlando was a bit shady. Asked that we pay for our check-in bags with cash and wanted 10$ cash to put our seats together. I did not give him cash and had to ask for a reciept for the checked bags. We were 4 hours early for check in.

It was cheap, that’s for sure. Especially if you fly a lot on their routes and can join their rewards program it’s worth it.

No seat plug; No reclining seats; No TV; No carry on. Unless the circumstances really require it, just fly with someone else

Delta did a really good job as always. Cheaper, more comfortable, and a WAY better experience than Alaska Airlines.

The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early.

Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare.

The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process.

Delayed and cancelations are their best suit. They make you believe you paying so little and saving money Then they charge you so much for baggage, seat selection, You get only 40 pound for checked luggage ridiculous. And if you over 1 pound get ready to pay them 40 dollars extra.

Price before baggage rip off. They weren't bad by any means but not sure if the savings of 10 to 15 percent was worth it.

Seats are not comfy and it is truly bare bones no frills. Like driving a car with crank roll up windows and a stick shift. But hey it gets you there. Baggage is way overpriced. It would of been the same price on delta with more comfort and in flight entertianment. Live and learn

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.
