My wife and I flew round trip from Detroit to Orlando. For those not familiar with flying or this airline, Spirit is an economy airline. The seating space is smaller than many rivals (by an inch or two) there is no free WiFi, beverages and snacks are not “free”, and you are charged a fee for checked bags and carryons. You are allowed to bring a personal item with you as long as it fits under the seat in front of you. In return, the plane tickets cost much less than most “full service” airlines. With all of the airline mergers, Detroiters basically have Delta and Spirit to choose from. Delta is known as a superior airline for comfort, but I find that if they put you on one of their old MD 80s, that their is not much difference in seat space or comfort. For a relatively short flight, I can get along fine without a beverage or being able to recline. For this recent flight, my wife and I upgraded to the “Big Front Seats. These are oversized seats in the front of the plane with only two next to each other instead of the usual three (no middle seat). They costs an additional $50 per seat per flight or $100 each. The Base round trip ticket was $160+$100 for the big seat+$60 for one checked bag ($30 each way). For a total of $580 for the two of us. On the return flight, our bag was 12 pounds over and we were charged $30 making the flight $610. At $305 per person, and getting the big comfortable seats, I felt pretty good about the flight and the costs. Both flights were on time, in fact we landed early on both each way. No problem checking in, boarding, and the plane was as clean if not cleaner than others I’ve been on. I like Spirit and the value I get. Having flown economy on Delta for this same trip, there is not much difference in terms of experience. I always shop them both. If you’re willing to splurge, the Big Front Seats are really a nice treat on Spirit.
