My flight form NYC was delayed by 7 hours. I missed my rental car checking. Then lost the whole day in the airport instead of Vargas. When I tried contacting with Spirit there was no answer. I will never fly with this airline.

The Spirit people are nice. It would be better if they were competent.

Once the flight was 45 minutes late taking off, a series of poorly-executed rebookings led to a 7-hour delay. Spirit acted like massive problems were par for the course.

Personal item (free bag) is now a reasonable size for a human to travel with for a weekend trip. Online check-in and updates are helpful and efficient. Boarding was also efficient. Crew was pleasant. Take-off and landing were smooth (on a blue-sky day). Arrived early!

Tiny, tiny seats (and I’m a small human). Pull-down tray the size of my phone. No place to park a water bottle during the flight. But overall, it was better than I expected from Spirit.

Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated.

That we were delayed on the plane for two hours on a small plane but I know it was out of their control.

Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations

The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes.

Excellent 8.0

The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time.

Virtually no food options.

Flight not fu0ll, requested seat change, even willing to to back of plane. Crew refused. Never happened before... First time in 40+ years of flight travel... Found tenor of staff a bit authoritarian.

The Spirit people are nice. It would be better if they were competent.

Once the flight was 45 minutes late taking off, a series of poorly-executed rebookings led to a 7-hour delay. Spirit acted like massive problems were par for the course.

Captain announcements both friendly and professional

Obnoxious charging for everything. Not even TAP water offered for free, which is "over the line."

The flight itself (once the plane arrived) went well. The seats were comfortable, the crew was professional and polite. No issues during the flight.

I had signed up for email notifications with Spirit but I didn’t receive any notifications until AFTER landing.

Not a fan of spirit airlines. I would have rather paid an extra few dollars on flight cost for free water then have to be bothered paying on plane

My flight form NYC was delayed by 7 hours. I missed my rental car checking. Then lost the whole day in the airport instead of Vargas. When I tried contacting with Spirit there was no answer. I will never fly with this airline.

Everything!

Simply no space. Narrow seats expected, but ridiculous how close the rows are. It's cheap for a reaaon.

Person at check-in was definitely more pleasant at LaGuardia than at Detroit Metro. No delays. No problems with luggage.

Boarding was smooth and the crew was friendly.

My companion and I each had a carry-on. We were charged $45/bag coming and going, so $180 additional charge. The seats were tiny.

Personal item (free bag) is now a reasonable size for a human to travel with for a weekend trip. Online check-in and updates are helpful and efficient. Boarding was also efficient. Crew was pleasant. Take-off and landing were smooth (on a blue-sky day). Arrived early!

Tiny, tiny seats (and I’m a small human). Pull-down tray the size of my phone. No place to park a water bottle during the flight. But overall, it was better than I expected from Spirit.

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.
