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.

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"

Pros: Liked the inexpensive flight. The lead stewardess on the way out to California was great. She gave the best safety speech I ever heard. Informative, but so entertaining.

There is no meal food that can be purchased which is an issue if you are running late for a 6 hour flight.

Cons: The plane was late to arrive the monitors we're showing the delay, the gate assistant still said it was on time and online was saying ontime. Once boarded , unless you pay extra for seat you are cramped in the smallest, most uncomfortable seat that does not recline. Although the base price was cheaper it was more expensive to check baggage, and everything is add on price including water. Plus if you didn't check in ahead online there is a charge and you have to pre pay for bags because it is $50 per bag at airport. Will never fly with them again. Worth the extra money for another airline.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: Boarding was extremely easy until we saw our lovely flight attendant permanent angry face. Why are you a flight attendant is you hate your job?!?

Cons: Don't be fooled by the low price, you'll end up paying out your butt for everything! You'll pay to choose your seats, carry on luggage, water, snacks. The seats are very uncomfortable, they do not recline and you'll definitely bump elbows with your neighbor. I'm 5'2 and 120lbs and the seats were wayyyyy too tiny for me!

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

Pros: I like that we landed on time

Cons: Pretty much everything else. I will never again fly spirit air for a cross country trip. How can you have an overnight flight and not let the seats recline? Yet they still tell you to put your seat back up during landing instructions!?

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"

LAX
PHL
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.

Pros: Liked the inexpensive flight. The lead stewardess on the way out to California was great. She gave the best safety speech I ever heard. Informative, but so entertaining.

Cons: Seats were uncomfortable with little leg room. Tray table on the way out was useless. You pay to assure that you have seats together, pay more for carryon or checked bags and pay for soda and snacks. There is no meal food that can be purchased which is an issue if you are running late for a 6 hour flight.

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,
