Cons: Spirit airlines charges extra for practically everything. Almost comical. Example: My seat back tray was a tiny postage stamp, compared to the normal tray tables for most other rows. Why?

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.

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.
