I liked that the seat assigned to me was in the front of the airplane. Also, the flight attendants were very nice.

I didn’t like that I had to pay for a carry-on I order to have my luggage with me. Also, I didn’t like I couldn’t recline my seat and there was very little leg room for me— I’m 5’7”, 140 lbs and usually do not have an issue with space. The wait time for departure was also lengthy (perhaps we were boarding was earlier to accommodate those checking in at the airport). Perhaps this could be remedied by more collaboration with the airline and the airport itself (?)

My experience was identical on all flights so I'll repost the same review: I really like Spirit's business model. Fresh planes, different style seats with less upholstery (less chance of absorbind spills and odors, as I see it) that results in more leg room. The upgrade to the top-tier seating (not called first class) is affordable and offers more room to stretch out and faster boarding. There is no food provided, no screen in the back of the seats to wacth movies, and carry on bags cost extra. And I LIKE this, because these are things I can do without yet with other airlines I'm paying a higher price. I gave 5 stars to the food and entertainment catagories because I like this approach of having neither. The planes are new and feel reliable and fresh. Feels like the future of air travel.

The boarding experience and the flight crew were very good. Flight was on time.

Play. It needed to be repaired or replaced. It made the entire flying experience very uncomfortable. There was nothing the crew could have done about it at the time other than hold the flight take out the seat and have maintenance come in and replace that. I don't blame the crew. But maintenance within the airline should have noticed and should not have allowed the flight to go out during the day.

Staff were very inconsistent on rules regarding my tiny Yorkie. Some were inflexible and borderline rude, others did not give her a second glance. I get that people are valued more than animals, however I paid $200 for my dog's ticket. That translates into, Treat me and my dog with respect and don't give me stank-eye if I'm trying to clean up her first-flight puke, thus lifting her out of the bag.

Got to the airport at 4am for a flight that was supposed to leave at 6am. The flight finally departed at 11:40am. I missed my non-refundable connecting flight and had to book a new flight. All in all I probably lost $300 because of this situation. On top of that it was my birthday.

The staff were fine, nothing really great, but nothing bad either.

So, we'll start with boarding. Why airlines can't figure out to board the plane from back to front is beyond me. No, let's load front to back so everyone has to uncomfortably shove past the people who have already taken their seats at the front of the plane. Then you get back there and all the overhead bins are full because everyone takes as many bags as possible onto the plane. Then you have to sacrifice the already tiny amount of foot room, "to put the bag fully underneath the seat in front of you." At this point you should be fine, except if you're over five and a half feet tall (I don't know if that's true I'm 6'2" and 275 lbs,) because then your knees are going to be buried so deep in the chair in front of you that the person up there doesn't even need a seat they can just sit on your knees. Luckily for you tall people, they put a nice metal rod just about knee level to really dig in and cause pain . . . Yay! Being a big guy, you try to be considerate and fold your arms in to give the person next to you as much space as possible, but don't expect that back as they'll spread out and become as wide as possible. Then to distract yourself from the discomfort, you try to use the free in flight entertainment via the United app, but "it's not available right now." In summation either be short and small or be rich and buy the seats with extra legroom when you fly United.

My flights were on time and I didn't die.

United Airlines doesn't have power outlets in their economy seats.

The gate worker said the gate for my flight had changed as my boarding time had been happening. Rushed to the other side of the airport where my new gate was supposedly at just to be told it was where I first started. Pissed beyond measure that I got to my flight one minute to take off because the United worker doesn't know what hes doing.

The first

This flight was canceled at the last minute and all passengers were told they needed to find another flight because the airline didn’t have any to rebook them on. Passengers had to pay out of pocket for new flights. Frontier said they would reimburse but I haven’t seen anything yet.

My experience was identical on all flights so I'll repost the same review: I really like Spirit's business model. Fresh planes, different style seats with less upholstery (less chance of absorbind spills and odors, as I see it) that results in more leg room. The upgrade to the top-tier seating (not called first class) is affordable and offers more room to stretch out and faster boarding. There is no food provided, no screen in the back of the seats to wacth movies, and carry on bags cost extra. And I LIKE this, because these are things I can do without yet with other airlines I'm paying a higher price. I gave 5 stars to the food and entertainment catagories because I like this approach of having neither. The planes are new and feel reliable and fresh. Feels like the future of air travel.

The passenegers.

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,
