Cons: The flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a reported maintenance issue with the aircraft but was originally delayed because of not having flight attendants available. When the flight attendants did finally arrive they all had an attitude of wishing to be anywhere but on this flight. The lead flight attendant even got into a verbal altercation with the gate agent demanding help getting people's bags into the overhead compartment because she was "injured" & not supposed to be at work. All in all a quite dissatisfying experience but not an uncommon one with this airline & this airport. I will use both only when I have absolutely no other options.

Cons: Spirit canceled my first flight due to "weather", although every other airline was still flying (including a Southwest flight to the same destination). They sent us to stand in a LONG line with a single woman yelling our options to us. I opted to get rebooked on the same flight tomorrow, stayed in a hotel (paid for out of pocket). The next day, I arrive at the airport and it's canceled again! This time they don't pretend; it was due to lack of crew members. Furious, I booked with Southwest and got home. At the gate, I spent around 35 minutes on hold and then another 25 on the phone to get a partial refund. This was by far the worst experience I have had with any airline ever.

Screaming crying babies and families should be kept at one end of the plane. And passengers should be asked if they want to sit by them.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Flight attendants are nice, and we didn't crash and die, so that's nice

Cons: I understand that spirit flights are offered at a lower rate because of their bare bones concept, however....riding a spirit plane is one of the most uncomfortable and miserable experiences one can put their sore, achy bones through. Did they really need to remove the ability to sit back more than 90 degrees? Did they really have to make the tray tables so small that they serve zero purpose whatsoever other than to take away some of the precious space you have between you and the seat that's crammed in front of you? And no water. Not even a sip of water without a charge card. I'd rather walk next time. Once you add in the misery that is enduring any time on a spirit plane, the $59 extra, per flight for any bag at all, the extra $10 just to attempt to jose a seat that's mildly less painful, and take away even a small gesture of making sure you're hydrated, the cheap flight is not worth it at all. I'll never fly spirit again. They're the worst.

Pros: Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry.

Pros: What was to like...hmmm...one flight attendant “allowed” me to get my earbuds from the overhead where I had to stash my purse.

Cons: There was literally little to like on this flight. There was minimal interaction with flight attendants and none initiated by them. Food/beverages are hugely expensive and they nickel and dime everything. A $275 round trip turned into more tah $400 because I wanted a seat to sit in ($38 round trip) and checked 1 bag ($80). I will never fly them again.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The sticker price (before check-in luggage) was good: $340 for Oakland to Detroit.

Cons: *Check-in luggage was $50 extra each way, so any relative discount in the price disappeared. *I couldn't pick my seat without a $10 fee. *Painfully loud intercom. *Being 5' 11", my seat was the most uncomfortable I've ever ridden in: Cramped with my knees touching the seat in front of me, no reclining option, and brushing shoulders with the passenger at my side the whole time. By the time the flight finished, my back and neck felt like a human origami experiment.

Cons: Spirit inexplicably cancelled my flight last minute, which made me miss my conference for work. Happy to get my refund in a timely fashion, but super disappointed by this disruption.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Spirit airlines is as cheap as they are on the front end because they have a ton of fees they charge on the backend, and it’s a 100% rip off. Very upsetting to know that the luggage is only 40 pounds And they charge for extra carry-on items.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly

Cons: It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again.

Pros: The crew was friendly.

Cons: I wish there was a way to better ensure aisle seats for the people who can't afford to pay for an upgrade. Maybe it's just not a thing.

Okay 4.5

Cons: The flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a reported maintenance issue with the aircraft but was originally delayed because of not having flight attendants available. When the flight attendants did finally arrive they all had an attitude of wishing to be anywhere but on this flight. The lead flight attendant even got into a verbal altercation with the gate agent demanding help getting people's bags into the overhead compartment because she was "injured" & not supposed to be at work. All in all a quite dissatisfying experience but not an uncommon one with this airline & this airport. I will use both only when I have absolutely no other options.

Good 6.0

Cons: After flying a dozen times with a suit bag and a backpack that fits under my seat, I've never had a problem The lady checking tickets gave me an ultimatum, either you fit your suit bag in your backpack, or you have to pay $59 for a carry-on bag. No ticket checker has ever said this to me in the past. She was rude, direct and didn't leave me with any other choice. She ignored me after she gave me the ultimatum, while I'm asking if this was a new policy. She gave me the cold shoulder. I was very frustrated, luckily the suit bag fit in my backpack. Then when I got on the plane there was so much space in the overhead bins, so I took out my suit bag and placed it in an overhead bin while the crew was watching. The crew didn't say anything. Your teams need to be more persistent with policy.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
