FAQs for booking Tampa to Chicago flights
Book cheap flights from Tampa to Chicago (round-trip)
Cons: Too many hidden fees! Buyer beware! The $55 carry on baggage fee is outrageous! We heard that the baggage fees are less if you book them online before your trip. We went online to do just that for the return trip and we were pleased to see that the fee was $36 - until we went to pay and there was a $9 fee tacked on because we weren't part of the "$9 Club"! We will never book with Spirit again. We will opt for the slightly higher flight cost and avoid the hidden fees! Overall, the flight was more expensive than any of our other options.
Pros: Crew was helpful. Flight was on time. Luggage was provided in a timely manner.
Cons: Underseat space for center seats is not adequate for two seats. One the the entertainment screens required multiple resets throughout the flight.
Pros: Flight went ok. From Tampa to Chicago, had good seats- Exit row after they asked for 2 people to volunteer to sit in them FOR FREE so they could put a mother- child seating together. Paying for Exit row seats at an exhorbitant cost seems ironic. Flight to Minneapolis was ok.z
Cons: Lost baggage!! Checked bag went to Dallas from Tampa instead of Minneapolis. Bag delivered the next day. Grateful it was the end of the trip rather than the start. Person at the Minneapolis airport took care of other bags left on the carousel (sent to the wrong place??) while wife waited for him to complete process of notifying Spirit about lost baggage.
Cons: Our friend died, sadly, just 3 weeks before the 3 of us were to vacation together for his 70th birthday. We informed Spirit 2 weeks before the flight. However, it became clear that no one at Spirit talks to anyone else. At each leg of the flight (one stop, so 4 legs), we had to explain to crew that no, our travel companion died weeks ago & will not be coming, and no, he will not be needing the wheelchair that he had arranged. We "only" had to discuss the wheelchair 6 times; apparently, 2 crews at takeoff informed the landing site it was not needed. And 2 didn't. It made a sad situation maudlin. This is separate from Spirit's shabby business model; appear to charge less than others and make it up in fees. Really, a boarding pass is an "extra" one should pay for? Try getting on a flight without one and you'll see how "extra" it is.
We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
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.
