Spirit has the most uncomfortable seats that have less leg room than other airlines and nickel and dimes you on everything. Spirit charges you for every little thing. I was flying with my wife and they charge you for seat selection on each flight, so if you want to sit next to your spouse, that will cost you extra. The baggage fees are much more than other airlines.
Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
I Didn't like the fact that their online checkin program was a complete disaster. I spent near 2 hours trying to check in and get my boarding pass. During this time I also made three telephone call to their help line which generated no help.
I was surprised and disappointed by how little weight wise the checked in baggage was and horrified by the cots of carry one.
While the upfront cost of the flight looked good..by the time I had paid for baggage and carry one I would have been better off with another airline
My advise to all 'NEVER FLY SPIRIT AIRLINES'
I thought I got a bargain on the flight to Cancun, but this flight ended up costing me nearly double when they charged me $80 for a checked bag that weighed 51 lbs. Every other airline is 50lbs and they are only 40. Then the flight attendants let the back of the plane passengers use all the front luggage bins and I had to fight backwards while deplaning to try and get my carry on. After my layover they straight up took my bag and I was forced to check it at the gate. Seems like a bargain until they nickel and dime you for anything they can.
