Spirit probably had 6 flights or more going through customs at the same time whjch made for extremely long lines. My 2nd flight was cancelled and i stood in line for 3 1/2 hours to rebook another flight. They should have another process to help out stranded customers. Especially when the flight crew doesnt show up and they cancel a flight.

The plane was brand new and very clean and spacious. The flight was also so cheap. The negatives are that the seats don’t recline, there is no Wi-Fi on the plane or option to even purchase Wi-Fi, there was no entertainment, and because of the low prices, not even the water is complementary. Excellent value

Alaska Airlines is a good airlines everything about the time from check in to air time was great....

The problem is maybe overnight layover in San Diego isn't a great idea. So just as fair warning to future travelers. DO NOT buy a ticket if there is an over night layover in San Diego. You will have to spend the night in the check in lobby because the gates are locked. You will have to re-check-in and go through security on your next flight when the airport opens in the morning. If you like the sound of that then more power to you.

I liked the check in process. I always think it's smarter to start from the back and you did which I believe is why everyone settled faster. There was a nice variety of beverages.

The space was a nightmare. My legs cramped and were stiff because ofthe lack of leg room. A lady passed by to go to the bathroom and her body rubbed against me. Trying to come down the aisle with a duffle bag? Horrible because it kept hitting people. The aisles are too small; my feet were freezing and I had socks and shoes on; the flight attendants looked like they hated their job (maybe they were exhausted); the overnight layover was not a good idea.

If you have a phone, tablet or laptop, you can watch a bunch of movies for free! No charge whatsoever. I had my laptop and was able to watch two movies and a few TV shows. I also sat in an exit row and had a LOT of leg room. I was really happy.

I thought the food choices could've been a little better. Just free biscuit-style cookies.

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.

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.
