The flight was ok

First of all the check in lady was rude and unprofessional. The company lost y luggage resulting in extra charges When I was looking for assistance mr Prince was extremely rude, rolling the eyes and not providing support, I was lost and seeking for guidance and I had to figure it out by myself

The crew was helpful and apologetic.

They purposefully understaffed the check in counter, which you have to use. They charge for every little thing, even carry on bags and snacks. The seats might as well be lawn chairs. They are so close together everyone onboard will die from head injuries if there's an accident. I'll fly Southwest from now on.

The flight ended up canceling. There was no explanation given and no accommodations to reschedule. It was a Friday and the earliest they could fly us out was Sunday, we were scheduled to fly back Monday. There wasn’t even an apology or attempt to get us on another flight. We walked ourselves over to the frontier counter where they were willing to help us figure something out. That flight actually ended up delayed and they gave us vouchers for the delay so we would fly with them again in the future. The airlines are a service industry and spirit gets a 0 in my eyes.

Very reasonable price.

You literally have to pay for even the basic things, including for seats to recline. Cushion on seats thin and seats don't recline. 5hrs flight and No entertainment, no tv, no radio, no complimentary food...they offered a cup of water.

This is actually almost a funny question because Frontier is the worst Airlines well actually that's not true spirit is the worst Airlines the seats are uncomfortable it takes about an hour and a half to just put your bags and baggage drop and then when you get on the plane They don't serve you anything they have no entertainment your crowded in can't move people are rude worst hairlines ever

I liked getting to my destination safely.

I didn’t like the incredibly packed Spirit Airline checkin area with little to no staff for assistance. The one or two that were there were not very approachable or helpful. The worst part was my flight being delayed for one hour due to “flight staff not available” to fly. To add insult to injury, the news of the delay was not posted in the airport departure screens nor on the spirit website/app.

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.
