Good 7.3

Pros: This flight had more legroom than ANY flight that I had taken in years. I'm not sure if I just got lucky and landed in an upgraded seat or if that is standard on that plane, but it was great! This crew was also one of the best I have encountered. The cabin was very cold, but as soon as I asked the attendant to turn up the heat, she happily did, and I was more comfortable. She then came back to check on me to make sure I was better. Then... when I was going into the bathroom to brush my teeth, she stopped me and insisted that I take take the fresh, unused portion of a water bottle to use-- so as not to rely on the "plane" water. I would never had thought of such a thing-- but she was right, and for that, I was safer and more comfortable. Both attendants were also immediately at the ready with unlimited hand sanitizer after my bathroom experience. These kinds of things show me that they were pre-prepared to go above and beyond for my comfort and well being-- that is RARE in the airline industry, and I definitely appreciated those extra steps. Please look up their names from my itinerary, and give them the credit they deserve!!! All of my gate attendants were great too.

Cons: Both of my flights that day were late, but honestly, I do believe that was due to the weather--- so I was not upset. The HARD sales pitch for bags and extras was excessive. There was no food or entertainment, so that's why I gave them a 1

Pros: The fact that there was a nonstop flight from PHL to LAX at a reasonable time of day.

Cons: When we arrived, it seemed Spirit was understaffed. There was a long line at check-in, and no bag drop. The attendants seemed stressed, understandably. We were seated in the second to last row, in front of three unaccompanied minors. The flight attendants were doing their best to make sure the kids behaved, but they were incredibly disruptive. My wife and I agreed: unless Spirit has a deal that's too good to afford, we will not be flying with them again. What you may save initially, you pay for in quality of service, comfort, and convenience.

Pros: Quick loading/unloading due to people not having many big bags. clean. smooth flights.

Cons: Delays on both departures (round trip). service at counter seemed chaotic at times and attendants seemed confused often. Seats extremely small, uncomfortable, and did not recline (that should be noted somewhere especially for overnight flights). I won't fly Spirit again. Just doesn't seem worth the hassle for the price.

Cons: I have never been treated so rudely by an airline staff. I left my jacket on the plane and after an hour of waiting for my bag asked if it was found. She calls the cleaning team and says 'did u find a.jacket?, no ok bye' end of story. There is no effort to find my jacket that I just left and I am in tears with the disregard this attendant has. The entire experience with spirit had been Terrible but this is inexcusable the worst I have ever experienced.

Cons: 1.

Luggage counter was bad, giving wrong picking luggage location caused two hour waiting in airport for nothing.

At that point the ticket was “100% non-refundable” and they refused to help me in any way.

Cons: Uncomfortable, smelly, delayed, and they even charge for water.

LAX
Good 6.5

Pros: The price of the ticket was outstanding and the ticketing and boarding process went by pretty smoothly. Our flight arrived early, and I credit that to the crew clearly communicating instructions to the passengers, and the passengers (for the most part) actually listening.

Cons: The seats are not very comfortable and the legroom is very cramped. I flew from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, and I don't think I will fly that far again with Spirit, but would consider Spirit for a shorter flight. It would have been nice to get a cup of water without having to pay for it.

Okay 4.3

Pros: Quick loading/unloading due to people not having many big bags. clean. smooth flights.

Cons: Delays on both departures (round trip). service at counter seemed chaotic at times and attendants seemed confused often. Seats extremely small, uncomfortable, and did not recline (that should be noted somewhere especially for overnight flights). I won't fly Spirit again. Just doesn't seem worth the hassle for the price.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Flight staff were very professional and courteous. Pilot kept us informed of status regularly.

Cons: There is a charge for virtually everything including check in and soft drinks.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: unlimited refills on $4 coffee. flight attendant very nice

Cons: Seats were horrible. On a 6 hour flight the plane doesn't allow you to recline your seat! It is impossible. Entire flight felt person behind kicking me

PHL
LAX
Good 7.0

Pros: The non-reclining, clamshell seat was much more comfortable than I expected - not bad. Departed on time, landed on time, no frills and no hassles. Airplane's interior was clean. The airplanes are called Air"bus" for a reason!

Cons: The demeanor of the staff was a bit detached. Pleasant enough, and polite, but it seems the company fosters a "you're on your own" demeanor in its crewmembers.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: The flight attendant was at least comical

Cons: First off while checking in the spirit attendant would not leave me alone, insisting that she work the kiosk for me (2 of which malfunctioned btw). I soon found out why she was so helpful, BECAUSE SHE WANTED ME TO CHECK MY BAG. A single bag that I have never needed to check before that fits fine under the seat. 50 bucks at ta the gate. Thanks. Second, why does water cost money? On a five hour flight there should at least be a complimentary water. I dont need pristine filtered bottled, just anything. Even the stuff that they use for coffee or noodle cups would do. But I guess thats why they're so expensive too. Listen, I get the whole "flying is actually really expensive" and "We're a business" blah blah blah... but when you begrudge someone a cup of water, stuff them in uncomfortable seats and call common decency an upgrade I have trouble believing that spirit is in it for anyone's best interest other than themselves . And as their incessant sales pitch at the end of every flight tells me "There are a lot of choices when it comes to flying". And after their "helpful" clerked shanghaid my luggage and cost me 50 bucks, I'll take my chances being beaten and dragged off of other airlines. At least I'll get a free soda out of them.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: The fact that there was a nonstop flight from PHL to LAX at a reasonable time of day.

Cons: When we arrived, it seemed Spirit was understaffed. There was a long line at check-in, and no bag drop. The attendants seemed stressed, understandably. We were seated in the second to last row, in front of three unaccompanied minors. The flight attendants were doing their best to make sure the kids behaved, but they were incredibly disruptive. My wife and I agreed: unless Spirit has a deal that's too good to afford, we will not be flying with them again. What you may save initially, you pay for in quality of service, comfort, and convenience.

Cons: Every time Ive Flown flight 267 (3 times) from Phl to La it is has been at least 2 hours late and they always make us sit on the runway for ridiculous amounts of time. I won't be flying Spirt in the future it's just not worth the hassle!!!!!!

Mediocre 3.0

Cons: Add ons was unexpected. Seats were cramped. Crew not very nice. Wife was freezing the whole flight back because of a broken ac vent. Passenger behind me had his knee on my back the whole flight. Told flight attendant about issues but did nothing. Thought that spirit being a new airline would have better service.

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.
