Mediocre 3.0

Cons: Have you been screwed over by Spirit airlines? Have you noted how a carry-on costs over $40? Have you noticed that you can't check in on the internet without signing up for their website and giving them all your personal information? Have they suddenly and at the last hour delayed your flight by 4 hours without letting you know, and then claimed that they emailed you, when they didn't? Have you noticed that they don't allowed comments to be posted to their facebook page (because they'd get nothing but bad comments). On top of that, when I got to the front counter, where I was told that my flight was delayed 3 hrs (thanks for not texting ir emailing me about it), I asked the guy at the counter to check and see if I was still on the flight. He confirmed that I was. But when we started boarding, my ticket no longer worked and he could not find me on the flight list! Wtf??? I almost got left out of th plane because of what???

Pros: My least favorite part of any flight is the landing but this flight was very smooth and pleasant. The amount of legroom was excellent and made the flight more comfortable.

Cons: The airport crew at OAK told me that Spirit wouldn't allow me to use the TSA preboarding pass I printed at home. I had to go back to the ticket counter for a printed boarding pass which was strange to the Spirit staff at the ticket counter. This created anxiety for me in terms of being timely to board my 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.
