Spirit has the worst planes super uncomfortable really long flight and it was not easy to get to go to the restroom also the flight attendants are very chatty and rude they didn't seem to happy to be there overall the worst part was paying for a carry on and then not having anywhere to put it.

Everything was bad the bathroom was disgusting

We got bumped from Main-Select to rear of plane next to bathroom to balance load. were not compensated. were not "logged" as relocated. what if we had an emergency? And we struggled to get compensated for return flight. I had to pay for upgrade and told to call Customer Service for refund?

You pushed us up to an earlier flight so we didn’t delay the connecting flight. The seat location was worse than the original flight including, in one case, seats that didn’t recline. The fact you don’t offer free snacks on a five-hour flight is obnoxious. When we got to LA, there was absolutely no guidance where to find out conntecting flight, if we had to retrieve our bags or anything else a customer-centric airline would provide. We turned to LAPD for direction. Should that have been necessary?

The relationship between Alaska airlines and Virgin American looks good on paper! However, they are two separate entities who's counters do not collaborate! Gate 31 at Newark, New Jersey had no digital display and therefore did not indicate the destination or flight number, because a nearby screen was dedicated for Alaska airlines. The Virgin American guys seem to set up a little temporary podium that did not have a microphone so the guy was yelling instructions to us and in the back it was very difficult to hear which boarding group they were accepting. At the check in counter they told me to get my seat assignment at the gate, so I went to the virgin American gate on the left and they said I needed to check in at the other counter which was Alaskan Airlines, which referred me back to the other gate. It was all very confusing. I doubt Richard Branson is aware of how poorly organized the boarding process was!

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,
