Pros: The airline crew were well dressed.

Cons: No one and I meant no one was telling you anything. From the ground crew to the airline crew. Please don’t get me started with the catastrophe at the airport where it seemed like Spirit had nothing in place. Checking in was a nightmare. Reminding of WHY it’s best to pay instead of try to cut cost. NEVER again!

Mediocre 2.6

Cons: 5hr delay for this flight. The check in back and carry bag cost $105, $35 short of my actual ticket price. The seats were extremely cramped. It was I comfortable sitting between two people rubbing up on you through the entire flight. And this was a brand new plane. So spirit airlines goes expensive but as small as possible. Needless to say going forward I’ll spend the additional $105 that I’d spend on bags and just fly with JetBlue. JetBlue actually gives free snacks during flight. Unlike Spirit who charges. This will be the absolute last time I fly with Spirit Airlines.

Pros: Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful.

Cons: Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!

Cons: Reaching Charlotte terminal I was extremely disappointed. The gate attendant seamed to only want to make excuses as to why there was no wheelchair available. (Short staffed) she didn’t offer me a seat or apologize for no availability. Costumer service should be number one when you work with people everyday.

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.

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.
