The crew was friendly and that was about it.

They say they are a budget airline but after all of the add ons they are more expensive. Also most uncomfortable seats ever. DO NOT fly this airline if you have to fly more than 2 hours or your butt will feel like a pancake. First and last time flying this airline.

Movies were good

After all the raving my wife did about how great you guys are because she uses your airlines all the time this happens to me.......The little jerk at the gate that I asked for a better seat 2 hours before the flight. "He said sit tight". I sat through an hour and a half delay because the flight to San Fran was delayed. I then waited patiently so as not to bother the guy and when we were 15 minutes from closing the door he stared at me and sheepishly said He couldn't do anything.I then boarded the plane , seat 26 C the worst dam seat ever. This little jerk then comes on the plane to correct a seating mix up and once that was done, he is right in front of me and says into his radio "please board the stand by passenger to seat 11c". This person came late and got the better seat.So much for flying with you goofs in the future and I am going to persuade my wife not to fly you any more. Thanks for nothing.

The flight crew was attentive and polite.

Though not the fault of the crew or airlines, we were delayed almost 90 minutes because a parent took their toddler into the lavatory while at the gate and they messed it up and plugged the toilet with paper towels and/or pampers. This was after I had a 8-1/2 hour flight from Copenhagen, Denmark. Also, the seat space and amenities are so inferior to international flights. The narrowness of the seat and closeness of the rows makes it hard to be comfortable. After being treated to two meals on the international flight, one small two-inch bag of snack mix is almost pointless.

The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well.

The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered.

AA customer service was great because we had missed our connection from Rome to Chicago. They got me and my daughters on the next available flight back to LAX with preferred seating that we had already paid for. They proactively checked my carry-on and the flight had all the individual entertainment amenities we were hoping for. The crew was friendly and attentive.

There was nothing about this flight I didn't love.

The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive.

Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?

We landed safely

I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!

As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!

Due to a traffic jam, I was late & missed my flight. I talked to the lady at the front desk to discuss my options. Because they didn’t have a flight to my destination until several hours later I let her know I was going to take a different outgoing flight with another airline. she did not give me any other response or information other than - Okay. Well, turns out she didn’t notate my account, I was considered a “no show” & they cancelled my returning flight. Worst customer service experience. They’re so insensitive to unforeseen circumstances - “you shouldn’t have missed your flight in the first place” and “you agreed to the terms & conditions” was their only responses. Safe to say I’m never flying Spirit again. Stay away folks! :)

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,
