I read that everything was ala carte on Spirit Airlines, so I knew to pay for my bag online and carry on only the size allowed for free. The boarding and flight was very smooth. There are kiosks at the airport to print your boarding pass which also saves you money.

I didn't understand how to pay for a beverage/snack while on board the plane. Wish that something that inexpensive would be offered without charge!

I tried to find out who checked me into the flight and her supervisor. I was discriminated against for having a service animal. I was told my doctors paperwork was insufficient. I called spirit airlines to see who was working and they could not find out. I will never fly again with spirit.

Boarding was smooth and fast. The travel time was a bit faster than predicted too.

With lack of reclining seats and no complimentary snacks or drinks at all, the comfort scale is lacking. Even the tray tables were replaced by miniature, undersized, pieces. Even with the discounted prices, it’s hard to want to fly with them again.

Way off schedule, way to tight of space, no way to sleep being such a late flight! As far as a beverage, they were out of everything!! Nice air line for quick trips,but to fly for 4 hrs at night from leaving at 12;00am, just impossible to sleep or really relax.

Nothing

We arrived at the airport 2 hours before flight time, got ready to check our bag only to be told our flight to Phoenix had been cancelled and there was no replacement flight available until Friday - this was on Monday. No assistance to get us on another airline, just no customer service. We found another flight which cost double our fare and waited 12 hours in the airport— they didn’t even offer to buy us breakfast.

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. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
