Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Service is across the board very poor. Gate Personnel were condescending and disrespectfull. Extremely difficult reaching a human over the phone and when you do it is an overseas call center. Telephone agents are hard to hear and cold and script. By the time the airline is finished nickel and diming you you will end up paying more for less. Less, service, less comfort and for your plane being repeatedly delayed. Mine was more than two hours late for take off.

Cons: Informal, unprofessional and uncomfortable

Cons: The flight from LAX was delayed twice and took off more than three hours later. The flight back from Philadelphia to LAX was canceled about two hours before the flight was to take off. Arranging a substitute new ticket on American cost me more than $680 - Spirit was offering an unacceptable replacement flight which would have been 2 days after the cancellation. Then, Spirit offered ONLY $50 as a coupon - instead of refunding the nearly $200 paid for the cancelled flight (or the actual damage of +$680). After I argued with Spirit they agreed to refund the cost of their ticket to LAX. END RESULT - Hours were lost due to Spirit delays and the flight cancellation, inconvenience was endured and more than $500 was lost. Very bad life flight experience.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Small tray tables, cheap thin seats that do not recline, no seat pocket, the arm rests do not completely fold up into the chair and just get in the way. Would never fly spirit for more than a two hour flight. Cramped tight quarters and high unfair prices for baggage

Good 7.0

Pros: The crew was very friendly

Cons: The flight was overbooked which caused me some anxiety as I needed to get to my destination and hate to see what would've happened if no one volunteered to get off the plane.

Pros: Long flight- red eye - but impossible to sleep.

Good 6.0

Cons: Spirit did not include my TSA/GOES information on my boarding pass. Therefore I had to disrobe, remove shoes, belt and go through an embarrassing, full body pat down in full view of everyone. Very frustrating...given that I took the time to provide Spirit with all of that information on booking!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I don't appreciate purchasing a ticket I think is the least expensive only to find out you get charged more to carry a bag on the plane, get charged for being assisted to check baggages, get charged to have your boarding pass at baggage check in, get charged to pick my seat, get charged for water. This is a scam. I will avoid spirit airlines at all costs.

Okay 4.0

Cons: The up charges for everything is ridiculous (you even have to buy water). By the time you add in all the up charges the flight is no cheaper or more expensive (bait and switch) This will be my one and only time to fly spirit airlines

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: NOTHING, ZIP, ZERO

Cons: the ticket wasn't cheap and they nickel and dime you to death. They charge you for everything even getting a seat. Last I checked I thought buying a ticket got you a reserved seat.They charged more for a carry on bag than they did for a checked bag and only give you 40 lbs. The seats were so so small and had no cushion to them. It was as though they covered the seat with material over a wood box, the seats have no recline and no leg room! 5 hour flight across country and it was so uncomfortable it was a joke. I had not printed my boarding pass on my return, when I checked in they told me it would be a $10.00 fee for them to print it for me, you must be kidding! I asked for water on board the flight and they told me they have no drinking water in flight unless you pay for it! Im not usually a complainer but this was the worst carrier EVER! The planes are full ( with first time Spirit passengers) you are packed in like sardines and I can tell you most passengers were saying " you would only book with Spirit once! Never again"

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Spirit airlines was awful. They have an extremely unfriendly crew coupledo with no room. They don't have anywhere in front of you to place a book or water. They charge for water, coffee or chips. That might be almost acceptable if they were cheap, but they charge like any other airline. Bad experience. Americs, Delta etc. You're all better

Cons: Everything.

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.
