Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process.

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

*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.

The flight crew was friendly

In light of trying to be a cheaper value for its clients, I feel that Spirit Airlines becomes more of a hassel once you start to discover all the hidden fees that go with flying with them. The seats were borderline comfortable, and there was no form of entertainment on the plane. Not a good airline to choose if you desire a comfortable ride; they offer the bare minimum amenities so they don't have to spend money on you.

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.

Mediocre 2.0

Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process.

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.

The flight itself was goods

Seats were TERRIBLE. NO BETTER THAN SLIGHTLY PADDED FOLDING CHAIRS. no recline. Tray table were not big enough to do any work -were only big enough to hold a cup of water. Spirit is really bare bones.

When we got to Detroit, it took Spirit 1 hour and 10 minutes before the turn style even started for our luggage to come out. UNACCEPTABLE!!

The pilots flight skills. Brought the flight in early and one of the smoothest landings I've ever experienced.

The seats were horrible. There were no adjustments for comfort at all. Baggage fees!

They would not check me in at the ticket counter and I had to pay a fee to rebook another flight the next day while missing an entire day of work.

Okay 4.8

The flight crew was friendly

In light of trying to be a cheaper value for its clients, I feel that Spirit Airlines becomes more of a hassel once you start to discover all the hidden fees that go with flying with them. The seats were borderline comfortable, and there was no form of entertainment on the plane. Not a good airline to choose if you desire a comfortable ride; they offer the bare minimum amenities so they don't have to spend money on you.

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.
