It was ctually a great flight both ways. We weren’t sure what to expect, as we’d never flown on Spirit before. Painless flights!

I am afraid to fly - period. i do not like to fly. My recent trip to Florida was for pleasure. I chose to fly Spirit for the first time; Delta was the only airline I had utilized in the past. I can happily report that my flight was delightful. I can't believe i am typing that. Keep in mind...

Spirit Airlines is a simple, cheap airline - comparable to Ryanair. Just make sure that you do the check in in advance and print out the boarding pass, they charge you dearly for that.

For your ticket you get a seat. That seat does not move and is thin. You get nothing else unless you pay. It is worth it for short flights only.

The flight was on time and baggage claim was easy. The flight attendant was funny and kept entertaining the passengers though I hardly understood anything as he was speaking Spanish. All in all a good basic service with good pricing.

Customer service had a chance to make me a loyal patron. Instead, I'll never give them another cent. Booked a flight for a conference, and I found out I needed to cancel roughly 36 hours after booking. Spirit offers a refund within 24 hours. Keep in mind I am giving about 4 months of advance notice. I contacted with a...

I fly more 150-250k miles per year and have never flown this airline before. I wanted a direct flight from Baltimore to Orlando to take our two boys to Disney for the first time. I thought "what the hick I am sure it can be so bad, it's less than two hours anyway" Well, I tell you, that was by...

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).
