JFK
Okay 4.0

Cons: The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother.

Cons: This is pretty much the Megabus of airplanes. If you're looking to travel on a budget and have low expectations than you're good. I got to airport early and 2 hrs before departure there was still no gate number on display board. 1hr to departure still no information..I happened to stumble upon the waiting area (only marked by package size display) while doing a 10th time search of the airport..which isn't small. I didn't mind so much the flight delay..but there was lack of direction and information for waiting/boarding the plane.

PDX
LAX
Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I didn't like that I had to pay DOUBLE for my baggage which consisted of ONE backpack the size of a carryon. This bag costed almost as much as my ticket. The flight itself was sketchy due to the pilot telling everyone on flight that the plane had an "unexpected error" which delayed one of our flights almost an hour. When the planes landed, it was rougher than any other plane I've been on. Also, my return flight home was CANCELED WITHOUT WARNING. None of the travel agents offer to help find me a new flight home nor did they offer to pay the difference of having to book a NEW TICKET THROUGH A NEW AIRLINE nor offer to help for my UNEXPECTED COST OF HAVING TO STAY IN PORTLAND ANOTHER NIGHT. The agents were rude and not helpful in the least bit. I will NEVER fly Spirit Airlines again.

PDX
LAX
Excellent 10.0

Pros: Trip from L.A. to Portland and return flight took only two hours each way. We did not have to wait for luggage to be loaded on airport carousel. Personnel were very polite and professional. Definitely 5 Star service. We will recommend to friends and family.

Cons: No dislikes. We will not hesitate to fly Spirit airlines for all of our traveling needs. Walter & Lucy Alta Loma, CA.

PDX
LAX
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Honestly, getting off of the plan.

Cons: I just didn’t know Spirit’s business model and was caught off guard for yet another unknown charge. $65 for a carry on knocked me on my heals. No screan, a broken table (sorry about your safety brochure but had to fold it up to shim my laptop so it would see-saw when typing), snack and soda was extra... yah, I travel a lot and have some things I’m used too and so this just feels like I’m getting taken. Especially that a different flight was only $20 more round trip and I’d have gotten all these things and save a $130 in carry on bag charges.

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,
