I had heard horror stories. So many people told me, "seats are small", "planes are cramped", "overcrowded", "super picky on luggage"...I was nervous but the price was right! We needed an afternoon flight 2 days before Thanksgiving and they were the only plane to do it! I checked my luggage sizes a thousand times-even asked the attendants at the desk....

Cheap flight option. Paid for the bare necessities and got what I expected! I traveled with a personal item that fit under the seat in front of me, and was not disappointed. Pleasantly enough, I did end up traveling with more space than expected- since the flight was not overbooked, though I was assigned a middle seat, the row across...

I was so afraid of flying but these guys made it so awesomely fun that I almost forgot I was about to take off. the service was great from every single staff\ attendant and everyone had fun in our section due to making jokes and laughing together.

Basic service as advertised. They advertise low price flights, then nickel and dime you with baggage fees, seat selection, etc. Some flights were delayed slightly, but overall, experience was okay.

We recently flew Spirit to Atlantic City. I was presently surprised how smoothly everything went from the time we boarded and landed. We had absolutely no issues. The checkin and booking process were very clear and simple. There were email reminders about carry on size limits, checkin bag fees, seat fees and kiosk fees. With little effort we got a...

6 checked luggages paid $100s to have it carried and now its missing! 10s of thousands of dollars worth of luggage and I can’t get a single person on the phone. Spirit makes you pay all this money then steals your crap! I can’t believe this I will NEVER let anyone I know use this airline.

We left after another Spirit flight to the same location, since our flight was missing (waiting for) an additional flight attendant. Then we had to wait on the tarmac for a gate. While waiting for a gate, I called Spirit to try an get them to hold my connection. The first connection (after fighting through the auto system) gave me...

Terrible airline try to avoid it at all costs.All the time selling on the plane and they tell you the water and you have to pay; counting the discomfort of the plane and the payment $ 45 for each suitcase.

Spirit Airlines is hands down a disgrace to all airlines. In my experiences flying with Spirit, I've never had a great one to talk about. I consistently blame myself for things I could've done better and tell myself to never fly with them again. But to save money, I make the same mistakes. Their slogan should be, "You get what...

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).
