Fort Lauderdale - Phoenix
Domestic
3/4 flights we took got delayed. Worst airline to travel with FOR SURE. I do not recommend Spirit for anyone. Frontier has yet to let me down - for a cheap alternative I would always go with Frontier instead of crappy Spirit.

Fort Lauderdale - Cancun
Mexico
Nothing that everyone doesn’t know already but worst airline in history. $79 bag fee for an extra 10lbs (up to 50lbs which is normal on every other airline and Allegiant)? Absolutely insane. I’m currently waiting on a flight that was supposed to depart at 420pm (it’s 440pm) and it still says “on time” with no update from staff. It's a non stop flight but could anyone dare to think that they could have a flight be on time? Absolutely not. Spirit is a 0/10 airline. Conversely, I fly Allegiant all the time and always have an A+ experience.

$79 for a carry on bag???? There is no customer service, and their employees are snobs. We cant even check in our bags till 4 hours before your flight. I am never flying spirit again. Outdated planes, very poor customer service.

I love Atlantic city airport and convenience of Spirit airline flying from there. I'm so happy Spirit still offers affordable flights to Florida.
