I arrived at the airport in time but at the ticket counter they said I was three minutes late for check in and would not allow me to check in and get on the flight. As a result, I missed my flight home after Thanksgiving and had to miss a day of work and pay for cab and accommodations for the night. I also had to pay $100 for a flight change fee. It felt like there was no interest in customer service. Instead I found "gotchya" policies that seemed designed to generate extra fees. There were other frustrated Spirit customers at the ticket counter as well. I would not recommend Spirit going forward.

we always travel by spirit and as always we use the same bag , my husband went to Texas by spirit 2 weeks ago whit that bag and they didn't charge anything but in the trip back to LA they charge $65.00 and it was the same bag he traveled from LA to Texas, in conclusion we are not longer continue traveling by spirit because you don't standarly charge for baggage, sometimes you charge sometimes you dont and when you make your random charges the fee for traveling with you is the same fee for traveling with any other airline.

I like that Spirit gave me a total refund without too much grief...

as I said in rating my trip to Orlando from Pittsburgh, I never took this flight from Orlando to Pittsburgh as Spirit unilaterally changed the return flight from 4 in the afternoon on Monday to 8 in the morning.

Upon checkin at the spirit counter - I was told the flight was delayed by approx. 45 min. called my son and we went for lunch this was all at 12:30 the check in - then we had gotten back early and guess what - the plane was boarding - had I not come back from lunch by 2 pm - I would have missed my flight! Also, I had a carry on bag of 18" and was told I had to check it. AND charged an additional 50. each way. AND I will not even get into the landing at LaGuardia - what a disaster that place is. I hope Elite comes back to Islip... Now, I'm supposed to fly out again on Dec. 15 - and haven't received my confirmation from Spirit as of yet!

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.
