I had heard that Spirit cancels a lot of flights. My KC to NYC flight via Detroit was seamless there and back. Staff was pleasant and efficient

Seats don't recline and could have used some cleaning, but for a short trip without a lot of luggage I will use Spirit again.

Excellent 8.5

This was the first time we flew with Spirit. We loved the price, but expected it to feel cheap. Except for a la carte pricing, it was comparable to economy class in other airlines. And we liked it that seat backs do not recline, so no more seat back in the face.

No concerns outside of economy class in any airline; it's really tight.

Spirit is cheap, but you pay for it in mediocre service and in very squeezed seating. I was lucky in that the plane was not full because it was a holiday. But when the plane is full, people are really jammed in.

Again the boarding process

A customer was on their phone and was not listening to the flight attendant, however the flight attendant was very rude to him. Rolling her eyes. I feel like all the stewardess should go through customer service again. both instances made me feel very uncomfortable.

Beautiful flight attendant, efficient boarding and deboarding.

Unclear about baggage costs when making reservations and at the airport. Found getting checked in on my first Spirit flight unclear due to all the membership promotion on the same screen page.

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,
