Pros: None

Cons: couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk.

Cons: Plane arrived late. (That's ok, it happens..) Once we were on the plane, we were delayed for quite awhile. Not sure for the reasoning other than they kept calling a bunch of people to see them, on the microphone. Also, the microphone speakers were hardly enthusiastic and didn't seem to know what they were reading when giving directions about safety. The bagge fee is crazy. Probably won't use spirit anymore unfortunately.

Mediocre 2.6

Pros: The staff in Orlando were beyond friendly and helpful. Jasmine (Supervisor) took great care of us.

Cons: Our plane was an hour late in San Jose, then we sat on the runway for 45 minutes in Fort Lauderdale because Jet Blue was "blocking our gate". We were told twice that they were holding the plane (which was the last flight out because we missed our original flight by an hour and a half due to delays) for us. We went through security twice and they still didn't hold the plane. There's about 12 of us that didn't make it and was told that the plane was being held. We were forced to stand in the back of a long line to rebook. In that amount of time ( which was over 2 hours) in line and online booking were being made for our same flight.They WOULDN'T accommodate us with a hotel even after we stood in line for another 2 hours just so they could tell us that if we wanted to fly to Dallas it wouldn't be till Tuesday. By this time shuttles werent even running for the number they gave us for a discount on a hotel. The supervisor, GREG HALEY came over and covered his lanyard id with his hand the whole time he spoke with us. We asked for his name and he just said Greg and tried to walk away. We asked him for his last name and he was hesitant but told us it was Haley. We asked his supervisor's name and he scoffed and told us that he didnt have to give us that information, then walked away. We tried to sleep for 3hours on the freezing airport floor to catch a 8am flight to Houston so I could drive my boyfriend all the way to Dallas to pick up his truck and both of us drive back to Houston. Luckily our connecting flight to Houston was in Orlando for 4 hours so it gave me enough time to jump on a standby flight to Dallas Fort Worth out of Orlando in just under an hour. Worst airline and Supervisor (GREG HALEY-OUT OF FORT LAUDERDALE) I have EVER dealt with in ANY company.

Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!

Okay 5.0

Pros: The flight crew seemed nice and friendly to most of the passengers that needed something. Some flight attendants were funny. The boarding process went smoothly. After everyone boarded the plane they allowed passengers to change seats because the flight wasn't full.

Cons: If you weren't as needy then the flight crew wasn't as friendly. You have to pay for things that come standard with other airlines such as: carry on suitcase ($55 at the time of check-in) and a departure tax when leaving from Costa Rica. So in the end the flight may not actually be cheaper. The seats didn't recline back. We were on the airplane for an extended amount of time before takeoff and the pilot kept telling us 2 minutes until take off (several times).

Good 6.0

Cons: It was a new plane with new seats and TVs. Seats are smaller and less cushioned. Also the temperature on the plane was very hot. Cabin was stuffy, my back was soak sweated by the time we arrived. I heard other passengers as we were deplaning complaining about it as well.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: No one staffing the desk until an hour and a half before one of their two flights for the day is scheduled to take off. The staff was very unprofessional and prioritized their friendly conversations behind the counter over taking care of customers when they finally showed up.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Kaska was very helpful during my checkin. All the staff was on point and helpful. I was worried because all the bad comments. I guess if you know what to expect you will enjoy your travel with spirit.

Okay 5.6

Pros: Movie selection was excellent. Bombardier jet was a notch above what I expected.

Cons: We were over an hour delayed on the first flight. The seats were super uncomfortable for the overnight flight. They left open seats in the upgrade section on the second flight - why would you ever do that?!?

Okay 5.3

Pros: The crew was very nice and I appreciated the entertainment options

Cons: I have a receipt showing Austrian airlines, was unable to check in online, so I waited in a very long line to get to the Austrian counter only to be told that my flight was actually a United flight and I would need to go wait in that long line for my ticket.

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.
