Spirit is the worst airline. they will charge you an extra $55 dollars lfor carry-on luggage! this is ridiculous and unacceptable. I highly advise people to never travel with Spirit. this company is a scam.

Once we got to Chicago our flight was delayed: originally scheduled to arrive in LA at 1800 we will not arrive until 2000.

Okay 5.0

We landed safely

I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!

Good 6.6

The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive.

Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?

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.

Due to a traffic jam, I was late & missed my flight. I talked to the lady at the front desk to discuss my options. Because they didn’t have a flight to my destination until several hours later I let her know I was going to take a different outgoing flight with another airline. she did not give me any other response or information other than - Okay. Well, turns out she didn’t notate my account, I was considered a “no show” & they cancelled my returning flight. Worst customer service experience. They’re so insensitive to unforeseen circumstances - “you shouldn’t have missed your flight in the first place” and “you agreed to the terms & conditions” was their only responses. Safe to say I’m never flying Spirit again. Stay away folks! :)

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,
