Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very courteous"
Pros: "The crew was awesome! The steward was engaging and made us all laugh and feel comfortable for a short flight when he didn’t have to. He had a great sense of humor and gave the kids cookies and wings. Something I haven’t seen in many years. He and the pilots were 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 crew made the whole experience fantastic."
Cons: "I loved all of it"
Pros: "Smooth, efficient and timely."
Cons: "Seats weren’t assigned until at the gate even though checked in 18 hours before. Bag drop was horrible. No self service. Was inline for about 45 minutes."
Pros: "On this short flight, the flight attendant was wonderful, accommodating special requests and being fully engaged with passengers. On time departure, early arrival, overall a nice quick flight to Duluth."
Cons: "CRJ200 planes are always a bit cramped, and having to gate check anything bigger than a small purse is an inconvenience. Hopefully the fleet will change over to the Embrair planes soon. Beware 'Basic' flyers (cheap tickets): you are not eligible to take an earlier flight even if available."
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Pros: "Crew was nice"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was clean."
Cons: "No Tvs"
Pros: "It was a nice flight. No troubles"

Cons: "Another delayed flight due to equipment problems"

Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "Small crowded aircraft with minimal overhead storage. The seat pitch was so limited my knees were against the seat in front of me. The tray table couldn’t be lowered completely. Small child behind me kicked my seat during the entire fight."
Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"
Cons: "For a competitive price charged by almost any other airline for the same distance, there was no lunch on a midday international flight? That is terrible. To make things worse, the entertainment screen was broken. It did not respond to touches. More of an ordeal than entertainment. To top it all, the current flight info (e.g. time at departure & destination, flight duration) was all wrong. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Cons: "There was a loud ringing sound at boarding & it continued through the flight. Very annoying. Hurtful to my ears."
Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Pros: "First time flying Delta. And let's just aay, now I know why it's so cheap. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Pros: "The price."
Pros: "very nice"

Pros: "Funny instructions while talking about safety and rules on the plane"
Cons: "Pilots were over half hour late"
Cons: "Escribo esto en español para poder expresar mejor mi indignación ante el servicio tan mediocre que recibimos. Después de que el vuelo se atrasara más de 4 horas, nunca logré entender porque fue que nos atrasamos. Nos decían que íbamos a hacer una cosa y hacían otra. Pasamos de ilusiones y luego desilusiones durante horas. Amo viajar y nunca en mi vida me había sentido tan estresado como viajando con Spirit Airlines. No solo fue el atraso del vuelo, sino que también salíamos a las 12:45pm de San José, hora a la que usualmente creo que todos almorzamos, y no se les ocurrió darnos de comer sino hasta las 6:00pm (hora de Costa Rica) y yo no se si según ellos por darnos una latita de Pringles y un vaso de Coca Cola ya se nos iba a olvidar el terrible atraso que tuvimos. Cuando llegué al aeropuerto de Miami noté que habían roto una rueda de mi maleta y se lo dije a una empleada de Spirit Arilines que no sabía que hacer así que recurrió a otra y lo que me dijeron fue que eso no era problema de ellas porque probablemente había sucedido en Costa Rica y luego se fueron. Ahora mismo estaba tratando de hacer el Check In para mi vuelo de regreso y nunca había sido tan complicado hacer un Check In, ni siquiera entiendo porque no puedo hacerlo. Entro a la pagina de preguntas y soporte al cliente de Spirit Airlines y para responder a la pregunta de COMO hacerlo, lo único que saben decir son los beneficios que tiene, beneficios a los cuales me ENCANTARÍA tener si tan solo en su pagina dijeran COMO se hace. He pagado casi $100 en equipaje solo porque nunca nadie me dijo que si lo pagaba como un mes antes iba a salir más barato, que por cierto su pagina de internet es de lo PEOR que he visto, porque después de pagar mi maleta para ir de regreso, ni siquiera me decía si se había cargado bien a mi tarjeta o me daban una factura, simplemente volví al sitio para administrar mi viaje y ahora solo estoy rezando para que cuando llegue al aeropuerto en serio el pago se haya realizado correctamente. En fin, voy a tener que seguir viajando muy seguido a los Estados Unidos desde Costa Rica y puedo jurarles que NUNCA voy a volver a viajar con Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "Never got on the plane. It got cancelled..."
Pros: "The lA320 are nice."
Cons: "The whole luggage situation"
Pros: "Only the price"
Cons: "Charge for bags ...gate change ..tight seating don't recline."

Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "Literally everything"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "good. functional. cheap."
Pros: "Board was smooth and well-designed"
Cons: "I was thrown off by everything "extra" I had to pay for"
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "We did opt for extra leg room with an added charge."
Pros: "The plane looked brand new! Plenty of room! Friendly staff! We could even understand and hear the safety instructions! (Yes, even after flying several times I still pay attention to them.)"
Cons: "The chaos of the delay and the woman getting arrested. Leg room is very tight."
Pros: "I'd heard horror stories about flying with Spirit but my first trip went off without a hitch. I'll be using them again."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "No problems."
Cons: "Extra cost for luggage and bigger backpacks"
Cons: "That my seat was given to a child traveling without an adult without anyone letting me know, until I got to my seat and questioned it. I understand this happens, but I think I should have been told prior to boarding and being confronted with the situation."
Cons: "Spirit never got us to Minneapolis. United did the next day. I can't believe they can stay in business."
Cons: "Solicitation for credit card"
Pros: "Nothing! !!"
Pros: "Affordable price"
Cons: "Chairs do not recline"
