- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines.

- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual.

We took off on time and landed early.

This new Basic Economy is really awful. You have to check any carry on and you cannot pick a seat. I’m 6’3” and to be stuck in a window seat with two next to me is painful. There is absolutely no leg room if you’re over 5’10.

Nothing, the seats were really horrendous, the head rest was in such an awkward position that it was better to attempt to hunch over and try to sleep on the tray. The lack of leg room as well made it equally uncomfortable. Seriously, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on.

See above.

Okay 4.6

Easy boarding and crew kind of ok.

There is a toilet for the main cabin right behind row 5. The door was constantly banging due to a long flight from Orlando to SFO 5hrs 23 mins. Very old uncomfortable first class seats with very little reclining due to the toilet being so close. Not good!!! No real entertainment unless you brought it with you. If this is the standard of United first class now think I will give it a miss in the future.

Some background: we fly Spirit twice per year round trip from Plattsburgh, NY to Fort Lauderdale, FL, for the past five years. We fly Spirit as it is the only airline within 3 hours of our home with direct flights to Fort Lauderdale. Overall, the experience has been positive enough that we keep flying the airline/route. I will breakdown down the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: The Good: Direct flights from Plattsburgh, NY to Fort Lauderdale, FL, within 90 minutes of my rural upstate NY location. Alternatives, we could fly Jet Blue for about the same cost from Syracuse, NY or Burlington, VT, instead. Both of these options require a lay-over in JFK late in the evening which is not desirable especially in the winter when delays are likely. What service Spirit does provide is generally good, except for one particular employee at Plattsburgh who I will mention under the Ugly. The Plattsburgh airport is small, yet it's runway is large and well-maintained being associated with a former AF base. This make for a pleasant experience getting from the parking lot to the plane, and ensures that bad weather has less impact on operations. The planes are generally clean and appear well maintained. The flight staff are generally courteous and professional. Spirit's Fort Lauderdale terminal is getting batter little-by-little each year, and is very easy to navigate from gate to rental car, etc.

The Bad: Spirit makes you pay for every conceivable extra you may require, e.g., from baggage, to printing boarding passes, to reserving a seat in advance, etc. Want to spend an extra $100, try sneaking a second personal carry-on or over-sized bag onto the plane. While the airport experience in Plattsburgh, NY is generally enjoyable, the Fort Lauderdale, FL, end is less so with very long/disorganized lines at the baggage check-in counter. The Ugly: While a majority of the Spirit ground crew are professional, there is one worker at the Plattsburgh, NY, airport who needs to find a new occupation in a non-service industry. I had a run-in with this lady during one trip after they gave away our tickets on an over-booked flight which was delayed for two hours. We did not realize that they wanted everyone to still check-in at the regularly scheduled time and they made no announcement of this desire to those waiting in the terminal. As a result, when our family went to check our bags 10 minutes after the original flight's deadline, I was told our seats were given away. I tried to discuss how this could occur with the worker in question, and she called the airport police over to confront me. Initially, the police were skeptical of me, but eventually became very friendly and compassionate when they heard what happened. With some input from the police to another Spirit employee, we were given tickets on a JetBlue flight out of Burlington, VT, paid for a taxi ride over to the Burlington, VT, airport and provided meal vouchers for the entire family. In the end, everything worked out, but it would have been much easier/less expensive for all involved if they just made check-in announcements at the Plattsburgh, NY airport. Interestingly, I have witnessed this same spirit employee getting into confrontations with other passengers on subsequent flights at the Plattsburgh airport, including calling the police in for what appears harmless conversation with her, e.g., like trying to understand why the are being charged for an over sized carry-on

Check in at SFO was helpful.

Website not usable, perhaps because flight was booked on Lufthansa. Requirement to scan passport rather than enter passport number prevents being able to complete process. United wouldn't let me get a seat assignment til I was at the airport the day of the flight, inspite of my going to the airport the day before. United wanted me to upgrade and pay them more to get a better seat assignment.

We took off on time and landed early.

This new Basic Economy is really awful. You have to check any carry on and you cannot pick a seat. I’m 6’3” and to be stuck in a window seat with two next to me is painful. There is absolutely no leg room if you’re over 5’10.

I liked how fast the boarding process went, as well as how the plane was early rather than late like the rest of the industry.

I would like free water, more food choices, chairs that recline and some kind of entertainment at all. This airline is not up to par with the rest of the industry. Also we were waiting at the carousel for a good half hour before bags came!

- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines.

- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual.

Nothing, the seats were really horrendous, the head rest was in such an awkward position that it was better to attempt to hunch over and try to sleep on the tray. The lack of leg room as well made it equally uncomfortable. Seriously, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on.

See above.

The first flight from Plattsburgh to fortlauderdale was for 1:55am and we didn't board until after 5am. Once we got on the plane, the seats are very tight and small so it made for a very uncomfortable ride.

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.
