Pros: Cheap flight

Cons: -The fact that you have to pay for guaranteed seats together. -Seemingly large number of incompetent employees or maybe it was just an attitude of "I'm just here to punch a clock, I don't get paid to go the extra step" -Can't even offer complimentary water? There's cheap and there's whatever that is.

Pros: The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train.

Cons: The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!

Pros: Seats uncomfortable, staff unfriendly and honestly down right rude, flight delays unreasonable and no information provided unless you were bothering the poor gate agent.

Cons: You have to pay for EVERTHING. Their system is glitchey and trying to pay for bags and checkin was a nightmare. Had to try multiple times and then it didn't take my payment and ended up paying extra at gate for one of our bags. Absolute WORST airline I've ever experienced.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Absolutely nothing.

Cons: I was running behind schedule to the airport due to car troubles. I arrived 50 minutes prior to departure, to check my luggage so I could then run to my flight, only to be told by this very ungraceful lady that it was too late and I would have to go talk to some other worker to be put on another flight. I reluctantly walked over and had explained my situation, I thought things were going well, the man said he would put me on the next flight out, what I wasn't anticipating was him asking me for $385 and whether I would be using visa or master card. I pled with the man explaining that I had traveled all the way here from California to visit my family in Michigan and that there was no way I could afford that on such short notice. My round trip flight didn't even cost that much. Needless to say, after I refused to pay that and asked if there was anyway whatsoever he could help me, his response was no and that I was holding up his line, without anytime for me to respond he belts out "NEXT CUSTOMER!" I have never been treated so poorly by an airline, I get treated better at McDonalds than here. I vow from that day on I will never fly with spirit, nor will I use the DTW Detroit airport. Please BEWARE before you fly with spirit, ps. its $100 per bag to check luggage with them at the gate.

Cons: When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline.

Pros: Email update about change of gate.

Cons: Spirit is not forthcoming on website about the extra charges prior to booking the flights, and the charges go up substantially at the airport. There was 45 minute wait time at the baggage claim. The seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced in 50 years of flying. There is also not nearly enough leg room between rows. Charging $65 for a small piece of carry on luggage is disgusting. Not having any water free of charge is not healthy for the passengers on a 4.5 hour flight. The flight attendants discouraged anyone from standing or moving around, also not good for one's health.

Pros: Flight attendants were a cut above -- calm, charming and very helpful as opposed to the surly hall monitors typical of most budget most airlines.

Cons: Aware of "hidden fees" I checked all of my boxes, checked in online in advance, paid for bags in advance, and when I got there, gate agent says bags were not paid for... BS. I entered credit card and paid. Apparently payment did not go through. Would NOT have been an issue at all had I not been charged $10 more for the same check-in. What a racket. Even when I tried to avoid surprise fees, they got me. Same thing happened to another passenger. Totally unethical. No benefit of the doubt given. Unreal. It destroyed what would have been an overall good experience on Spirit.

Mediocre 2.8

Pros: The only up side is that I eventually got home... :(

Cons: When I purchased my ticket I paid extra for an isle exit row seat. On the day of my flight I got an email plenty early that the flight had been delayed an hour with no explanation why, which stinks. Once on the plane we found out that the reason we were delayed was because they changed the planes that morning and we needed to wait for an extra stewardess to get to the airport bc of the plane change. This is HORRIBLE planning, if you don't have the staff don't change the plane!! Also because of the plane change my seat was no longer in an exit row. When I explained to the stewardess that I paid extra for my seat that was supposed to be in an exit row I was told that I needed to return to my seat and they will fix it after they are done boarding. Once everyone was on the plane they told me that I was "lucky" because there was still a middle seat in an exit row available... Again I had PAID EXTRA for an ISLE EXIT ROW seat when I purchased the ticket but now I am lucky they can seat me in the last exit tow seat available. When I brought up the fact that I shouldn't have to complain to get the seat that I had already paid for the stewardess gave me attitude like I should be grateful for whatever they give me. Then she passed me off to another gentleman who didn't care about hearing what my issue was he just wanted the plane to take off already. I felt very disrespected by all the Spirit employees once on the plane. Spirit in general is very shady because if I hadn't brought up the fact that I paid extra for my exit row they would have just let me pay the extra money for a normal seat.

Pros: Everything went smoothly. Baggage was at carousel before we were, a first.

Cons: Everything was fine.

Poor 0.0

Pros: Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha.

Cons: An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there.

Pros: Everything except landing at the same time my next flight was boarding. I had to sprint and was greeted my the meanest delta agent I have ever known. I didn’t know you could be that snotty. She would not Listen to me or help me get the correct seat o had signes up for

Cons: Attends on flight said to go ask gate crew to help me and I rushed out to be greeted again by the bus mean crude snotty agent. She told me to get my rear on the plane The attendants didn’t have a clue that she had others to board ( they all got upgrades) and I better move my rear. I was shocked.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I am a 130 pound 5"4 woman and I legitimately felt like I was shoved into a tiny little box and couldn't move my body for the 5 hours it took to get to LA from Detroit. They charge so much money for bags and don't give you anything on the plane everything is for purchase. Do not fly this airline. AA and United end up being the same price after the bag fees and seating fees and you can actually recline your chair and breathe on those planes NOT SPIRIT. The chair was plastic and didn't recline???

LAX
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Seats uncomfortable, staff unfriendly and honestly down right rude, flight delays unreasonable and no information provided unless you were bothering the poor gate agent.

Cons: You have to pay for EVERTHING. Their system is glitchey and trying to pay for bags and checkin was a nightmare. Had to try multiple times and then it didn't take my payment and ended up paying extra at gate for one of our bags. Absolute WORST airline I've ever experienced.

Good 6.0

Cons: When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline.

Pros: Everything else was fine! I really think you need better seats! More professional look! Get rid of the yellow and the way the writing is on your aircraft! Your known as a cheaper flight, but it shows also!

Cons: I think you should update the paint job on your aircraft! Maybe a little more professional? Looks kind of childish! Some of your flight crew seem very unenthused with their job. Like their just there for a paycheck. Not the pilots, but the attendants. I

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.
