It was easy to board and it was nice to be able to check in online ahead of time. My boyfriend was fortunate enough to pull down his tray and have the Lucky Seat so we did get 5,000 free miles out of it.

There was no outlets on the plane, or wifi. The seats didn't recline and the flight attendants were "flighty"

Flight kept getting delayed until finally got cancelled. Apparently it had been happening for the past 2 days and would continue to happen. Ticket counter got empty all of a sudden when cancelation email was sent . We could not even rebook within gate and had to go out and rebook. This meant we had to pick up luggage and go through security again. Awful airline

I liked the fact that the plane didn't explode midair, and that it got me to my final destination in one piece. Spirit knows how to do that.

I don't like sitting in airplanes for long periods of time, mostly because I can't get comfortable. Aside from first class seating, every airline's economy seats feel like medieval torture devices. It's what I expect, so no harm done.

Kindness of employees. Bathroom was mostly tidy. Pilot was good.

Surprise check bag fee even though it was small carry on and I had no other carry on. Happened both ways for total of $50. Felt like I was taken advantage of. You had to pay for any entertainment. Only food was a tiny bag of pretzels for a 6hr flight. Also maintenance delay.

When I am flying across the country I expect that the movies should be included. If you're going to charge for it the prices of tickets need to come down since it used to be included.

Just one flight attendant on my rebooking

That the crew member went out of her way and got me taken off the plane after I ran from check in to the terminal to make the boarding. I was out of shape and I at every right before I started running the marathon to the gate, I got in the plane panting and sweating breathing hard, so of course I felt sick after I ran since I had a full stomach of food and I needed to purge. Because I ate, ran a long distance with two bags in my arms, out of shape, and purging the food after long strenuous attempt to get on the plane, I make it. They then escort me off. They just rebook my flight. No compensation for even my taxi that I had to take now 3 times to the air port. Unbelievable.

My flight got delayed to the next day. Then the next day it got delayed again. It cost me alot of time, money and ruined my holiday plans . They did not refund me for anything. This is the second time this has happened with spirit and I will never fly with them again.

They were organized at check in and at the gate.

There were separate charges for everything. Bags, carry on, inflight beverage, food and check in line all had separate charges. The flight attendants were short and didn’t want to be bothered. The food was expensive and small in quantity. The flight was delayed three times including a 30 Min delay after boarding.

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,
