Spirit is exactly what I need for this particular trip. In was inexpensive and I had a quick turn around and no luggage. The plane was clean and newer. The staff was very warm. However, it was bare bones. Everything cost extra. In flight side $3 bag of chips $5. There is no wifi, no seat recliner, a very small tray, no in flight monitor, no in flight entertainment. So set expectations and this was great.

Made my connection on time

Customs is unorganized. I used Kosik & still had to wait in line twice. Once before i got my luggage and again after i got my luggage. Whew! Be sure you schedule two or three hours between connections or you will miss your flight.I had to wait at carresol for luggage, then drag to drop off point. Take train to gate, quite stressful

I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly.

I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat.

Traveling out was easy

Coming back was harder. As this was booked via Alaska but flown with partner American - coming back American's website would not allow me to print my boarding pass. A note said I had to check with customer service when I got to the airport. Which took 40 min to get to a rep. Once there they had trouble printing. Had to call corp - then finally a boarding pass with 25 min to get though TSA and to the gate. #stressfull

The flight crew was attentive and polite.

Though not the fault of the crew or airlines, we were delayed almost 90 minutes because a parent took their toddler into the lavatory while at the gate and they messed it up and plugged the toilet with paper towels and/or pampers. This was after I had a 8-1/2 hour flight from Copenhagen, Denmark. Also, the seat space and amenities are so inferior to international flights. The narrowness of the seat and closeness of the rows makes it hard to be comfortable. After being treated to two meals on the international flight, one small two-inch bag of snack mix is almost pointless.
