Pros: The crew was fine

Cons: Small horribly uncomfortable plane. Additional costs for baggage and food items. Very poor selection of food items. Constant up-selling at every step. Website is not user friendly.

LAX
Okay 5.6

Pros: I packed a personal item bag that had all I needed for the next few days. I didn’t have to pay for any carry-on. That was great! I was in & out of the airport quickly. I even got assigned (at random) a window seat. Very pleased with that experience.

Cons: The food that you can buy is basically just snacks (from my understanding). No real food. If you’re really hungry, just wait until you land? Or eat before you hop on the plane.

MSY
LAX
Mediocre 3.6

Pros: I liked that we did not crash.

Cons: I did not like almost everything. This airline should be called the nickel and dime airlines. Yes, the initial fare was cheap but then They hit you with $40 baggage fee, a $40 carry on fee and the only free item is about the size of a shoebox. $10 to choose your seat. $14 for what they consider a good seat, and $55 for a premium seat. What airline has seats that don't recline?? Are you kidding me? These seats are the equivalent of school chairs with a 1/2 inch padding for "comfort". When they say bare fare they are not kidding. I hope I never have to fly this airline again. This may sound like a joke but I am surprised they don't sell tokens to use the bathroom. "One token for a $1 but if you buy at the online check in you can get two tokens for a $1".

Pros: The price of the ticket was good, and the departure times suited me. The flight crew was friendly and professional. Both flights left on time and arrived early.

Cons: It’s bare bones. No food or drink (other than water) is included. Seats are rather narrow and don’t decline (that part is fine with me). There’s no real room to stash in-flight things, such as snacks, books, or headphones in the seat-back pocket, so it’s a juggling act to keep your stuff straight.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Paying for a carry on bag? Are you kidding me?! I guess that is what you get for flying a budget airline. But the fact that the price for the carry on bag is MORE expensive than a checked bag is absolutely ridiculous. By the time I paid for my bags for both of my flights, I would have been better off going through United or Delta! Don't let spirit fool you with low ticket prices, because it will cost you the same ammount in the end for a poorer quality experience.

LAX
Mediocre 2.3

Pros: Not much.

Cons: Fares may be cheap, but they gouge you on everything else. A carry on bag $57 is daylight robbery. Also overbooked my friends flight and bumped him so the whole trip was ruined because we didn't have much time. The seats are super uncomfortable as well. I guess you have to pay a lot more for a seat that doesn't send you to the chiropractor. Spirit should be ashamed of it's business model. It should be called set the hook with a low initial price then gouge all you can. I even took money to the bathroom because I thought they would charge. That is next by the way. I would have to say my Spirit experience at least matched my many prior experiences​ with United, which is the worst airline on the planet. Spirit maybe second by a slim margin. I will never fly Spirit again. They stink.

MSY
LAX
Okay 4.4

Cons: The a la carte menu can drive up the price of the ticket by over $150 per person if you aren't aware of their luggage and seating pricing when you book the original ticket. If you purchase your luggage check-in upon purchase, it is $31 per bag...but you need to be aware of this when you book. If you missed the small print on that and learn of it later, you will pay $41. If you check it in at the airport, you will pay $50 per bag. Their luggage limit is 40 lbs. vs. 50 lbs. at most other airlines, and this can cause an additional $30 fee on top of the other fees. The seats are quite tight, and unless you are willing to pay for selecting a seat, you need to "trust" Spirit to choose your seat for you.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Flight crew was friendly.

Cons: Baggage fees and seat fees turned this "low fare" into a "damn, I should have just booked on Alaska" fare. Forced to sit on the plane at the terminal on the tarmac for 3 hours before take off. Couldn't get off the plane and they wouldn't just switch us to a different and better equipped aircraft. Seats did not recline. For a 4.5 hour flight, this was very uncomfortable.

MSY
LAX
Mediocre 3.3

Pros: I liked how easy it was to board the plane, but that’s because I paid an extra $7 to be in zone one. That was the only thing I liked other than the flight landed safely.

Cons: I don’t like that I had to pay $55 to have a carry-on. I travel light for those reasons, and if I’m going to pay extra for a bag I might as well check it and get to take my toothpaste with me. I don’t like that I paid $27 to be in the exit row. There was no tray table on the seat in front of me, or anywhere for my usage. There is no headphone jack. You shouldn’t even ask if I enjoy the entertainment because they don’t offer anything, not even for the people that pay extra money. Also don’t like my seat didn’t recline or have an armrest and overly obese couple that they squeezed in next to me took up all the space of the row. What’s the point of paying extra for comfort, when you get less than the guy who paid nothing and is in a middle seat, who I’m sure he was uncomfortable and miserable as well. I also don’t like that you have to pay for water!! Who makes you pay for water!? Not even the peanuts or the pretzels were complimentary… Absolutely never ever flying with this airline ever again! The cheap airfare was definitely not worth the lack of professionalism and being taken advantage of to have to pay for every extra thing that should be expected in regular travel.

Okay 4.3

Pros: seat was pretty comfy and spacious.

Cons: some members in crew seemed to be disctiminating. I was wearing a head scarf and one of the air hostess, even though she looked embarrased doing it, came up to me to ask my name she marked something on her paper too. She tried to make it very normal because I can understand it hard to abide with the rule that you dont actually agree with. Well I literally have no problem being looked over or being asked the name, but i just think its pretty sad if they treat people differently just because the way they are dressed up. I had my baby with me and i would never want him to get a bad impression about people. putting a scarf is just a way of dressing like wearing swimming suit would be for a lot of people swimming. I am part of America and I used to not wear the scarf because the way people look at you but I took the fear out and started practicing something my religion teaches me, but being treated differently just because there is some addition in my dressing is pretty sad. if there is a rule like that wiyh airlines, thry really should change it: just my thought..otherwise, my religion teaches me to respect everyone and follow the legit rules, and I have no problem kn answering unnecessary questions too because I know I am right

Pros: It was a quick flight which i liked no layovers and the staff was nice

Cons: No wifi for free

Good 6.3

Pros: The price of the ticket was good, and the departure times suited me. The flight crew was friendly and professional. Both flights left on time and arrived early.

Cons: It’s bare bones. No food or drink (other than water) is included. Seats are rather narrow and don’t decline (that part is fine with me). There’s no real room to stash in-flight things, such as snacks, books, or headphones in the seat-back pocket, so it’s a juggling act to keep your stuff straight.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Not too much

Cons: We had to pay way to much to take our bags. It was hard to find a website to back in advance or person to talk to. All food and drink you had to pay for. No tv. No water or snack. The flight was delayed and hour and took forever to depart back home. The worst past was When we finally got to LAX we had to wait another 30 or more minutes on runway because the gate was full.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Paying for a carry on bag? Are you kidding me?! I guess that is what you get for flying a budget airline. But the fact that the price for the carry on bag is MORE expensive than a checked bag is absolutely ridiculous. By the time I paid for my bags for both of my flights, I would have been better off going through United or Delta! Don't let spirit fool you with low ticket prices, because it will cost you the same ammount in the end for a poorer quality experience.

Pros: Crew were funny and competent.

Cons: Bait and switch pricing. Good service isn't being nickel and dimed to death. No free food is understandable, but paying for water when you can't bring any on board is ridiculous. Flight delays at both ends. F lying Spirit made me feel both cheap and cheated. Never again

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: We need legislation that will require sites like Kayak to honestly depict the price of a standard airline ticket. This should include bag fees and especially fees for carry ons. When customers have to go to the airline website only to find out that each checked bag is $100, carry ons are $100, assigned seats are another $20 and no food is served, Kayak, at that point has become dishonest by not disclosing this information until after it is too late. Please tell us this information in advance, not after the fact. In the mean time, stay far, far away from Spirit Airlines. I can't wait for them to go out of business.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: The staff at the check in were rude and inconsiderate. They were not helpful at all. I was charged multiple fees that were not charged on my flight to New Orleans. The crew on the flight were also rude and I never saw them smile or converse with the passengers at all. The carry on baggage fee was way too high and was double what the website said it would be. Will not fly this airline again unless I have to.

Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Seats were not adjustable, but comfortable with ok legroom. All staff (air & ground) was friendly.

Cons: Contrary to their advertising, Spirit Airlines is not cheap. At midday I received the first of several emails that my evening flight was going to be delayed by 1.5 hrs. No reason was given. Actual delay was about 3 hours as apparently their computer system also had a prolonged outage.

Good 6.6

Pros: the comfort of the premium seats.

Cons: Sprit change for any single thing. Don’t even the water is free, after all the saving that you had when you book the fly, you pay more on the end with the change of carrion on, food, drinks and seats. This is a fraud what Spirit works.

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,
