Pros: The price.

Cons: The seats don't recline. That makes a huge difference for anyone taller than 5'6". United has thin seats also, and the difference is the seat slides forward as the seatback reclines, so the person in front of you doesn't end up in your lap. Not having the option to recline the seat makes me more claustrophobic. My next Spirit flight will be my last.

After working very hard to get my bag of o White Plains that evening, supervisor Jill hung out an hour past her shift ended to get it on the last transport to my hotel. The transport blew herself by ft and never showed up or called the o say he wasn't coming back! I got my bag on he next morning just in tim for my event! I also was not credited my frequent flyer miles. Some glitch in the system. Overall I must rate my experience as a one star simply because the pilots got us there safely.

Pros: Normally a kayak super fan

I've never heard of a product where you have to consume one piece in order to be allowed to consume the other you already bought. Legal basis seems very suspect. Do not fly with airfare.com and be wary of kayak vendors unfortunately.

Pros: I didn't pay the lowest amount on this lowest of budget airlines (still upset I couldn't change my fair when I saw a flash sale a week after purchase). Comfortable because I paid to upgrade seats so no one [else] would be tortured physically by my toddler!

Cons: Surly flight attendant should get another job, she was short with every passenger. All food AND drinks are sold on flight, no complimentary ANYTHING, which is not convenient given long flights and airport security but we got what we paid for which is a ride to our destination...oh yeah, 45 minute delay due to missing paperwork :,(, time made up in air but we sat for 45 minutes. Knowing the real delay time would have been nice so I could return to terminal to get food.

Cons: Frontier could take some time to better inform their first time customers of airport arrival times. I lost my seat AND was forced to book ANOTHER flight for 231.00 because Frontier didn’t think of their customer FIRST! Not to mention that was the ONLY flight leaving Boston until Wednesday

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!

Pros: Spirit airlines was absolutely the worst flying experience i have ever had. They lure you in with a slightly lower fare only to bump you up by paying extra for carry ons , baggage, water, snacks, even AC because it broke downnbefore i boarded until it was in the air. I landed safely that is the only positive

Cons: Too numerous to mention but a few of the worst were overeas call centers with employees that barely speak English. AC on board not working, loud disruptive noices coming from the compressor i presume for the AC, they needle you with upcharges on everything. Even no free water when its 94 degrees in the cabin.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The crew reseated the woman sitting next to me into the exit row, even though the woman came to the gate in a wheelchair, used a cane when getting on the plane (walking right past the crew), and clearly struggled getting on to the plane and then into her original seat, which was not exit row. After she was seated in the exit row aisle seat, the other passenger in the exit row had to climb over her when the passenger needed to go to the lavatory. God forbid anything had happened where we would have had to use the exit row. Imagine people having to climb over her or her having to struggle to get up and get out of the exit row exit, with people trapped behind her. The crew told me and another passenger that they would address this safety violation, but they did not. They also said that a manager would meet us when we got off the plane, but no one did. They clearly did not care about such a serious safety violation.

Pros: Found a very low priced ticket RT to Chicago on Frontier but didn't realize all the extra fees I would potentially incur. The gate waiting area has plenty of charging plug/usb outlets; a nice feature. I would suggest you only fly Frontier on short flights and if you are traveling minimally.

Cons: Frontier nickel and dimes you for seemingly everything: paper boarding pass, carry-on bag, seat selection, in-flight soda, etc. The seat doesn't recline and is much too short. I had such a difficult time sleeping because my head would lie against the top edge of the seat; I'm 5'10". If you are trying to use your laptop, put it on your lap because the food tray is only big enough to hold a couple cups of water which is what they serve, unless you want to pay for soda.

Cons: Seat was uncomfortable, no PTV entertainment, you have to stream from the wi-fi using united app, but you have to pay for wifi to download it.

Cons: The “entertainment” system was more like a “frustration” system. The wi-fi was painfully slow. I had to use a different browser. Then download software. Then close a separate browser. Then download more software. At each step, I would scroll through an entire list of movies (painstakingly slowly) to get to the one I wanted, only to find that I needed to do yet another slow process before I could proceed. Finally, after 30 minutes of effort, I was watching my movie! And then 10 minutes into it, it cut off and I could not re-open it. Thanks for wasting my time and killing my soul with this “entertainment.”

Excellent 8.0

Pros: First time I have flown with Spirit - had to get used to new rules. Everything went smoothly- still a few things that aren't clear.

Cons: If we are given a cost gradient for seating, why not do it for drinks and food. Sell a few outstanding spirits, food, beverages etc- customers will either want to pay extra or not.

Okay 5.3

Cons: On the outbound trip I had to pay for my carry on $65 at the gate because I was a first time flier on Spirit and had no idea how the a la cart thing worked. Was also not aware that I did not have to buy seats so my good deal price disappeared for my trip. I ended up spending more that I would have on a full service airline trip so I was very disappointed.

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.
