Pros: Absolutely nothing was positive about this experience. The flight was delayed over 5 hours. The communication was atrocious and inconsistent. Absolutely no attempt was made to remedy what is the worst customer service experience that I’ve had in a very long time.

Cons: Everything. I ended up rebooking myself on a significantly more expensive flight on a different airline. The experience was terrible at every level- the gate, the airport, and the customer service line.

Cons: Spirit airlines charges extra for practically everything. Almost comical. Example: My seat back tray was a tiny postage stamp, compared to the normal tray tables for most other rows. Why? Because I declined to pay extra for the privilege of an assigned seat. Oh, and the flight was 3 hours delayed.

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,
