You may want to look at this HCC article. Flink, since early releases, handled late arriving events gracefully, but the latest Spark Streaming is catching up to these capabilities (here).

Spark, however, brings a lot more to the table with regards to language interoperability, SparkSQL, machine learning, R, more adoption and community contribution (Flink has ~300 contributors whereas Spark has 1000+), etc.
