We had a very nice flight. We flew from Las Vegas, to Portland OR, and had a much nicer flight that we thought it would be. I read a lot of bad reviews on Spirit airline, but the only bad things that we ran into, were having to pay for our seats, and having our flight be a little bit...

The wife and kids and I flew from Oklahoma City to Orlando to enjoy a week at Disney World at the end of May. The flight out was uneventful, just crowded. Upon arrival, I chose to upgrade to the "first class" seats for the return flight. We arrived at the airport a couple of hours early as instructed and then...

You send me an email; subject line: We're Sorry. The email offers a $50 voucher towards a flight that must be booked within 30 days. I am extremely disappointed by the apology voucher you gave me for this issue. You cancelled my flight due to flight crew availability and left me with no option to fly the same day. Rather...

Sparknotes version: -rude at desk -poor service on flight -not worth the saved money I have flown on Spirit several times and I have finally had enough. The problem is not in the extra costs of bags or drinks, but in the staff. I understand that you get what you pay for - cheap flights with just the bare necessities...

As a college student this airline was perfect. I need something cheap, and I don't require much. I can fit everything I need in my backpack and I had absolutely no issues taking it as my personal item. I don't need to pick a certain seat because I usually fly by myself. My flight to boston was perfectly swell, I...

Spirit is OK for short flights (less than 3 hours). Flight attendants were courteous and efficient. Watch out if you have a checked bag as the weight limit is 40 lbs not 50.

Spirit did not catch this when the reservation was made, did not catch it in Phila. on departure, did not see it in Fla. at...

I had to buy an airline ticket a week in advance and Spirit Airlines offered a good time, non stop low airfare flight for me. I had to check in two pieces of luggages and I bought them on line for a low discounted price. The under 5 hour flight from Cleveland to Los Angeles made up for no frill,...

I have flown many times with many different airlines and I will never fly spirit again. First of all navigating their website to buy bags is a nightmare, and because the payment page wouldn't load the price kept going up getting closer to the time of flight. Secondly my flight got cancelled and I (plus 3 others flying with me)...

About Spirit Airlines
Florida-based Spirit Airlines (NK) flies non-stop to more than 55 destinations in the United States, Caribbean, Central America and South America. The carrier, which is not part of a major airline alliance, operates a fleet configured entirely with Economy Class seating. For an additional fee, passengers can reserve Big Front Seats, which are wider seats with more legroom located at the front of the plane. Travelers can also pay additional fees for checked baggage and onboard drinks and snacks. Spirit Airlines has two operating bases: Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) and Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
