Pros: Nothing. But it's the cheapest flight, so I can't complain.

Cons: The seats are very uncomfortable. During the boarding, it was totally unclear what is the current zone. When I tried to board they said I should wait for my zone, but there wasn't any information on the screen so it's hard to know, especially if you listen to music and don't hear announcements.

Pros: Flight from Hartford to Denver was excellent. First time flying From brier so I was unaware that snacks only were available for purchase so I arrived very hungry in Denver.

Cons: Flight attendant was somewhat rude when I had to make a run for the bathroom when the fasten seatbelt sign was on, but I couldn’t delay. Had to wait until they finished serving water instead of pushing their cart forward so I could return to my seat. Shortly after, the pilot made an announcement to please be respectful of the fasten seatbelt sign. I’m a seasoned and obedient passenger but sometimes the need for a trip to the bathroom is immediate. I think the flight attendant could have been a little nicer about it.

Mediocre 3.6

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: Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment.

Cons: However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep.

Okay 5.0

Pros: Food was far better coming back than going there.

Cons: No working USB to hook electronics up. What good is it to stream onboard content when on a 10H flight my phone dies in 4H... Stick to paper books next time.

Good 6.6

Pros: Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)

Cons: the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from.

Good 6.0

Pros: The crew were excellent.

Cons: No frills airline that nickel and dime you for everything. By the time you pay for luggage and seats, the fare was comparable to a better quality airline. Tight seating, uncomfortable seats, no way to charge your phone or tablet. May as well pay for another airline and be more comfortable.

Good 6.5

Pros: Crew were good. Seating was awful. Very uncomfortable because seats don't recline.

Cons: Seats need to recline and the cost of luggage was ridiculously expansive. I won't be using this airline again mostsly because of baggage costs.

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.
