We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced.

Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors.....

Bought ticket for my son to come home to Los Angles from college for winter break. Meanwhile his grandma died and we had to buy him a new ticket a day early to Phoenix for the funeral and he was to return to college from Los Angeles on his original ticket on Jan. 1. I told him to go to the ticket counter before the Phoenix flight to tell them of the situation and that he would not use the first leg of the LA flight but would use the second leg, home from Los Angeles. The Spirit employee told him he had to call reservations. He completed the Phoenix flight and called reservations where they told him that he had lost the LA round trip flight completely because he didn't call 2 hours before the flight. Now we have to buy another ticket even though its 3 weeks away and paid for! 3 tickets for one round trip. Really? You couldn't make accomodations? Robbery! Spirit Airlines, you are heartless jerks!

I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?

Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid...

Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade.

I had to cancel my flight because I did not want to miss my daughters baptism. I did not know the date of her baptism when I booked the flight. When I I tried to change the flight it would have cost twice as much. I’ve always loved flying with Spirit. Until this time. When I asked if I could get a travel voucher for a future date I was told it was a promotion so I could only get a $10 credit even though the price I paid was $120. I’m so sad.

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.
