It was a very cheap flight no frills no anything. It was very said the plane was not full but I could not move my seat until the plane was airborne then everyone else was moving in the seats I got in trouble because I had to go to the restroom

Yes it was a cheap flight but we don’t have to be treated the way that we are I would not fly Spirit again

I know spirit is a bare bones, pay extra for everything airline, but they literally wouldn’t give me a small cup of water during the flight when my throat was really dry and I just needed a sip of water.

Not giving a cup of water to someone on a 2 hour flight is practically inhumane.

Our prior flight arrived 30 minutes late and we had to run to the opposite side of the airport. We were there before the departure time but the staff gave us a hard time saying they were going to lock the doors on us. It wasn't until the flight crew ran up behind us that they finally didn't have an attitude and said we were fine. Online entertainment didn't work, no shows, the map doesn't have a time or useful info. My row was skipped by the crew for snacks. The guy came from behind first, which I didn't see and then one the way back, he didn't even look at my row or the row in front of me.

- each seat has cable television (even for very short flights) - I was asleep my whole flight from Long Beach to SFO but the pilot was great! came over the speaker to let us know there was a great view of the sunrise and what we were flying over below. - dimmed the lights for the flight since so many people were sleeping on the early flight

Good 7.0

Efficient boarding, capable crew, mbetter than standard free snack options. Decent amount of leg room due to it being an older plane.

Could have used another round or two of water/beverage offerings as the cabin air is always so warm & dry. Disappointed in lack of power source for charging devices on such a long flight, but the plane seemed way too old to accommodate that.

I had to cancel my flight because I did not want to miss my daughters baptism. I did not know the date of her baptism when I booked the flight. When I I tried to change the flight it would have cost twice as much. I’ve always loved flying with Spirit. Until this time. When I asked if I could get a travel voucher for a future date I was told it was a promotion so I could only get a $10 credit even though the price I paid was $120. I’m so sad.

I’m a loyal VA customer and am sad that they were forced to sell. The employees have excellent service attitude and are efficient and seem to actually like their jobs which usually translates to a better customer experience.

That they are now part of Alaska Airline. I hope they can keep all the special little things and characteristics that made Virgin stand out above the rest.

Everyone was great! Food drinks are great. Issues are with "policies" maybe?

Getting "bumped, asked to relocate to lesser seats to help with weight. then no compensation. also to find out we didnt get logged as moved. in an emergency? Woulda been bad. Trying to get help/comp on phone was total run-around. Lastly, drink sales ends too soon before landing. And started way too late this last flight.

Bought ticket for my son to come home to Los Angles from college for winter break. Meanwhile his grandma died and we had to buy him a new ticket a day early to Phoenix for the funeral and he was to return to college from Los Angeles on his original ticket on Jan. 1. I told him to go to the ticket counter before the Phoenix flight to tell them of the situation and that he would not use the first leg of the LA flight but would use the second leg, home from Los Angeles. The Spirit employee told him he had to call reservations. He completed the Phoenix flight and called reservations where they told him that he had lost the LA round trip flight completely because he didn't call 2 hours before the flight. Now we have to buy another ticket even though its 3 weeks away and paid for! 3 tickets for one round trip. Really? You couldn't make accomodations? Robbery! Spirit Airlines, you are heartless jerks!

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.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
