Entertainment options were great with many new movies available for no additional cost.

The flight was delayed by over two hours. We were scheduled to arrive in Detroit around 10 pm which was already on the later end of our comfort zone. By the time we landed in Detroit, claimed out bags and made the 1.25 hour drive home it was after 1:00 AM. This was not a pleasant end to our trip.

No frills but really good airfare. If traveling on a budget and can live without the basic frills it’s a great deal.

No in flight entertainment, seats don’t recline.

Flight wasn’t bad for what I paid for. One MUST definitely do his/her homework before flying to be prepared for all of the extra costs, etc... I was glad I did and was prepared with my own food, neck pillow, etc. I didn’t expect much in terms of creature comforts and therefore wasn’t disappointed. There isn’t much space in the cabin, so I was glad to have my 6-year old in between us 2 adults. Crew was pleasant r and professional. Ticket agent was helpful if a bit “assertive”. I probably won’t try to book them for long flights, but for short flights their fine

The tiny space and small seats!

The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN.

Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!

Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky.

Delay after delay! Got on board, no air working they finally let us off to fix then reboard. Thankfully the plane was my connection so I got home that night. This was my first and hopefully last Spirit flight. At check in the staff was unpleasant, poor attitude and no thank you. On board they certainly did not go out of their way to accommodate guests. The final minutes of flight was spent trying to push their credit card...no thank you! The money saved on the ticket was spent on my bags, seat reservation and snack...not worth the uncomfortable experience. No entertainment and expensive low quality drinks in a tiny seat that doesn't recline is not worth the small discount.

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.

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.
