I like the price of the flight, and the fact that I can add on and pay for what I need when it comes to luggage. I always travel light and not having to pay for bags that I won't need is nice. Having the option to choose is what i like the most. Other airlines are more expensive because they have these items included with your ticket

It was very clear the staff hate there job, every time I got with spirite I can see the crew looks like they hate what they do, customer service is never a priority with them. If they notice someone disturbing another passenger they really don't say anything.

I can't believe this is actually an airline. I felt like one of those people in a bus somewhere in South America in the rainforest with people and Chicken on their laps. Tons of screaming children, people up and down all the time, the flight attendants seem to not even care that they were there, filthy playing, dirty tray tables, seats don't recline, I could go on and on. One Step Up from riding a city bus.

The seats are so close together that my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Also, the flight attendants were kind of surly.

Flight was on time and was a smooth take off and landing. It seemed like a reasonable amount of personal space in the seat for a "no frills low cost" airline flight.

The plane felt crowded when boarding/exiting and the general behavior of some of the Spirit passengers was to be loud and smelly, and disregarding of other passengers.

Seat had a bar sticking into my back end. Felt like I was back on a C-130 in the web seats. Also sure if the heat was broke but once again felt like a military flight and should have worn my long johns while traveling to California.

All of it. What was advertised: cheap seats and you pay for everything (checked bag and even WATER). What wasn't advertised (or was, in flight): for fifteen+ minutes the crew was selling a spirit credit card over the intercom. BLARING IT. It woke me up. Why sell more things where your prospective customers can't escape listening to the sales pitch? Terrible terrible business.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
