Baggage fees are too high and the weight limit for luggage is less than all other airlines! Plus pay for checked baggage. They charge you for everything! Even on plane have to pay for all drinks even water etc. Seats not too comfortable and no leg room.

- Gate attendants made clear announcements - Gate screen was kept updated - Boarding was by zones instead of a free-for-all like my last Spirit flight

- The backs of the seats should be harder because every time the person behind me rustled through their seat pocket, it felt like I was being kneed in the back. - After we landed in Chicago, we just sat for 20 minutes before continuing on to the gate, and pilots did not make any useful announcements about this.

The flight itself was fine.

All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better.

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,
